I was sent a tube of Effaclar a.i. targeted breakout corrector to try out a few weeks ago.
The cream is an intensive local treatment that deeply purges imperfections to accelerate reabsorption and prevent residual marks:
– Niacinamide halts the evolution of outbreaks,
– The combination of piroctone olamine and glycacil purifies the bacterial source to resorb the imperfection,
– Micro-exfoliating LHA and reparative La Roche-Posay thermal spring water activate the skin’s regeneration process.
I have major issue with my skin, it forgot to grow out of the dreaded teenage years, I have tried most things on the market for acne and more recently have realised that a lot of the issues with my skin are to do with eating dairy. I did cut it out for a while but then life happened and chocolate and well yeah.
In the last 6 months I have stooped using harsh lotions and potions on my skin, partly due to my age (WAAHHH) and also knowing that scrubbing at your skin doesn’t actually solve acne issues.
The cream is a lovely texture, I freak out at using anything heavy on my skin as I know regardless of what it says it will make my skin worse. You can use this under make up. It absorbs straight away and has a nice almost non smell.
The results? It has had an effect on the small imperfections, the rough pimply skin on my chin. It has also improved the texture of areas where I have acne scaring, they haven’t gone, but I can see an improvement and hopefully with longer use this will carry on.
I have also had less cysts, which is a big thing for me.
I am passed now looking for miracle cures for my skin and I am realistic about having a good (grown up) skin routine, as it is as important to look after my skin as a whole and not jsut the problem bits and Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector will be a part of that.
I was sent the product for free to review it, but all opinions & comments expressed are my own
