First impressions of La Roche-Posay

On a recent shopping trip I picked up a couple of La Roche-Posay skincare samples to try. Having heard big things about the French skincare brand I was eager to try these out. 

I chose two samples of the effaclar duo+ which is a corrective serum that targets and corrects the appearance of imperfections. 

I have quite oily skin and suffer from breakouts every now and again so this product sounded perfect. It was really nice to apply with a slight perfumed scent. But it felt really soft and I could tell it had been applied to my skin without leaving any greasiness. 

All in all, this is a product I’d try again. I’ll have to take a look next time I’m in Boots! 

Let's catch up


  1. This sounds great! I dont have oily skin (more dry than anything which can be a pain!) I’m actually looking for a new serum though so might have to give it a try. Do you think it would work on dry skin?
