I’m a complete newbie when it comes to the La Roche-Posay cosmetics. La Roche-Posay always seemed to be a brand with great skincare to me, but I never felt any hype around it. I was thinking about trying the brand in autumn and luckily I got the Effaclar Duo(+) Unifiant at the beauty conference last September!
The Effaclar Duo(+) Unifiant is basically a unifying daily cream. It is supposed to reduce imperfections as well as red and brown marks. Regular use should also help you unclog pores, refine your skin texture and control shine. I’ve been using it regularly for a few weeks now and it’s very difficult for me to say that it reduces any pigmentation or changes your skin texture. However, although it seems like a silky cream to the touch, it covers the imperfections on my skin in a remarkable way. I’ve never tried any daily cream that would cover so many imperfections to such an extent, which is obviously a big plus. And although I have a yellow undertone, it matches my skin without any problems and doesn’t look pink at all. All in all, a complete opposite to any BB-cream by Balea or Maybelline I’ve tried so far.
I usually apply it after my daily moisturizer on those areas that need some coverage, such as my cheeks, T-zone and my chin. If I have some errands to run, I’ll just continue with my usual makeup routine. I love how it looks on my skin and I’ll definitely buy a new one when this tube up. It retails in Slovenia at around € 17 (here).
