LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel

LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel :

I’ve tried so many cleansers for my sensitive skin and Cetaphil is my favorite !!! But i thought of giving this one a try. I am already using the La Roche-Posay Duo from the Effaclar range and last week visited my dermatologist and ask him to prescribe a cleanser since i was running low after i saw it at the counter and have  been using this face wash ever since.

What The Product Promises To Do : 

This daily use gel cleanser eliminates excess sebum and tightens the pores of oily and thickened skin without causing dryness.

Wet your face and apply a small amount of gel.Massage gently and rinse thoroughly with plenty of water
Make sure you wet your skin thoroughly before applying this gel or else it turns creamy and does not lather well!

Not easily available because i had to place an order first at my regular drug store but it completely depends on where you live and other factors. You can also buy this product online.

My Take On LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel :

One thing i love about this product is that its paraben free. This product works for me and my teenage sister (with minor acne problems). It leaves your face squeaky clean without over drying. i also use the Roche Posay zero imperfections gel from the same range. The combo works wonders!!! Clears out minute breakouts and spots, leaves your skin feeling bright and fresh.

Pros : 

  • Paraben-free
  • helps control minor break out
  • cleanses and brightens skin after wash
  • does not dry out skin

Cons :

  • packaging takes too much space if i carry it in my handbag
  • does not suit all skin types, best for sensitive , combination skin.

Would I Recommend It :

Yes , to those with combination skin.

Ratings :

Performance – 4/5
Pricing – 3/5
Overall – 3.5/5
