There are a few things I love about La Roche-Posay. First, the brand is strongly backed by dermatologists and is available in 1,500 physician offices around the country. I work with many dermatologists in my day job and knowing that this brand has that endorsement is a nice credibility booster. Second, the products can also be purchased at drug stores like Walgreens, Duane Reade and CVS. Readily available = easy, and I really like that. The third thing is their new website (laroche-posay.us), which boasts a ton of great product and skincare information, including (nearly 60!) videos featuring dermatologists speaking on topics like dark spots, sensitive skin and sun protection. There’s also a feature where you can save 20% off your order by building your own Skincare Value Set including four different products.
Speaking of products, I started using Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment* to spot treat some recent acne flare ups on my cheeks and along my hairline. The product comes in a sleek tube, and the consistency is lightweight and goes on smoothly. You don’t have to wait very long to see results. I use this in the evening, and by the time I wake up I see a definite difference – the acne is usually drying up and seems less noticeable. It also doesn’t create dry patches on my skin, like some other treatments I’ve tried. Note that since this product’s active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide, you should take caution with your colored towels, sheets, etc. This isn’t an issue for me since our linens are mostly ivory and white, but it’s definitely something to keep in mind if you ever use a product with this ingredient. Overall, my experience with this product was a good one, and I do recommend!
