If you want to see one of the biggest skin care launches of the year, you’re looking at it right now. Products for oily, blemish prone skin have come on in leaps and bounds which is just as well, since spots are no longer the preserve of teenagers. Anyone and everyone can – and seemingly, does – get breakouts, and the La Roche Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish system aims to remedy this.
One of the points on the materials I have on the product is “UK Women have become defeated, feeling they have tried eveything but nothing works.” I think, just from running this blog, watching Twitter and researching online that this is absolutely true. There’s a fatigue settling in born of continued frustration that nothing ever improves skin condition, particularly with oily skin. Claims on La Roche Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish are pretty impressive with relief for blemishes, clogged pores, excess sebum, uneven and rough texture and red and brown marks on the skin. Interestingly, the data I have comes from tests on British women. La Roche Posay Effaclar 3 Step Anti-Blemish taps into everything that we’re already used to, i.e. cleanse, tone and hydrate. Except, it’s more than that – the final step is Effaclar Duo (+) which has already had rave reviews on unclogging pores and diminishing the appearance of blemishes while adding a whack of hydration.
I think sometimes, kits are a way of tying you in to products that you don’t really need so you can get to the one you particularly want, but not so in this case. Something you don’t see very often on a skin care product is a money back guarantee if you don’t see a difference – and there is one on the La Roche Posay Effaclar Anti-Blemish kit, plus an early waiting list going live on Boots.com on 6th August – a full month before it goes on sale. I think that’s a massive sign of confidence that La Roche Posay have found the golden ticket when it comes to spots and oily skin. I can’t wait to see the online reviews once it goes on sale – I can read as much marketing and press materials as I like but the important stuff is what comes along when real women review.
