La Roche Posay Lovin'

La Roche Posay Cicaplast B5 Balm* & La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo + review swatch photo

La Roche Posay Cicaplast B5 Balm & La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +*

Flashback a few weeks ago and my skin hated me. Spotty, scabby and quite frankly a mess. I've been using a combo of two La Roche Posay products to bring my skin back from looking like I'd contracted the plague to hydrated, plump and (relatively) spot free. La Roche Posay is a skincare range that I literally cant fault, Everything I’ve tried from the brand just works. From their cleansers to their spot treatments, it just plain and simple works. However my personal dream team come in the form of two LRP classics and today I'll be chatting you through them.

I cant live without is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, which has now been reformulated and rebranded as La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus +. I talked about recently and said I’d get back to you lot on my thoughts and I have zero problems with it at all. It’s like a souped up Effaclar Duo (Which I hear has been discontinued!) I’ve noticed noticeable scarring reduction and red marks going within a few days. This stuff is seriously good for problem skin and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Then I added the La Roche Posay Cicaplast B5 balm into my routine. I remember reading some where that it was good for healing  the skin. As I had these awful scabby post spot patches everywhere I needed hydration and healing power in one product. It's athick cream which I use as a overnight treatment all over my face. A bit like a face mask, I'd cover my whole face and go to sleep. Every morning my skin would look better and better and much fresher. My scabs soon healed and I was left with plump smooth skin. It's a great all round product which can be used on elbows, hands and lips. I do think it's a little TOO thick for my combo skin so I have started using it sparingly, but when I was in Paris I picked up La Roche Posay Cicaplast which is a more serum like texture and much lighter on the skin.

Have you tried anything from La Roche Posay?

  1. I didn't get on with Effaclar Duo, it broke me out really badly! I do want to give the + version of it a go on my problem areas though, hopefully it will work this time! (:

  10. Ooh, the balm sounds good. I get those horrible scabby spots (yuck) and I hate them, so this sounds like it'd be worth a try for me.

  17. Duo+ is working really well for me so far. I found the old formula to be incredibly drying, and it still is a little bit, but no way near as badly. I really want to try Cicaplast for my dermatitis (lovely...)!

  29. Effaclar duo + caused me to breakout more than before. I don't know if I have to wait longer for it to become effective (I've only been using it for a week) or say goodbye to it..

  31. the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is amazing and definitely a life saver with imperfections, need to try the other though, it sounds amazing and seeing as how the brand's Duo product is amazing, I'm sure this one will be promising too <3 thanks for sharing Lily x

  32. I heard a lot of good opinions about Effaclare Duo but for me it doesn't work. I was using this cream for 2 months and I didn't see any changes. Maybe I will try once again. I heard there is new formula, maybe now will be better.
