I think everyone has heard of the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo(+) range & quite rightly too because its nothing short of wonderful. This is a range of skincare is formulated to be an effective anti imperfection treatment, it helps reduce and control blemish breakouts as well as tackling those pesky blemish scars. It’s also fantastic at controlling oil, reducing redness and acting as an anti-inflammatory – so it’s soothing and calming on the skin. This range knocks it out of the pack when it comes to looking after blemish prone skin!
The exciting news is that La Roche Posay has released Effaclar Duo(+) Unifiant which combine their best selling Effaclar Duo+ formula with mineral pigments that give the skin a light tint to even out skin tone and add that healthy glow to the skin. It’s like a proper BB Cream combining incredible skincare benefits with makeup. I was very excited to give this a go because I prefer to wear a light coverage base most days and the fact this is giving you the same skin loving Effaclar Duo+ formula so I know my skin is in great hands alongside providing a nice coverage is super exciting.
This product feels lightweight on the skin and is easy to blend out to ensure you get an even coverage. It provides me with a good light natural coverage, but don’t worry its does a fantastic job of neutralising redness and evening out skin tone so you get a healthy radiant but natural semi-matte finish.
At its core, this product is a blemish treatment with the added benefit of giving your skin a beautiful lightweight tint, so it lets your skin breath, won’t clog pores and leaves your skin looking smooth. I am a huge fan and have been wearing it a lot these past few weeks. It is a very nice option for the warmer months because it does feel so lightweight on the skin.
Key Ingredients & Skincare Benefits
- Piroctone Olamine – to combat bacterial infection
- Linoleic Acid – to regulate sebum
- Niacinamide – an anti-inflammatory ingredient for intensive smoothing
- Procerad – a pluripotent ceramide to diffuse inflammation within 1 day and prevent and treat post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- LHA – for keratolytic action (speeding cell renewal)
At the moment this only comes in two shades Fair/Light & Light/Medium, and I have the Fair/Light shade which is an OK match for me during the Summer months but will be too dark for me as we head into Autumn / Winter. This product was only released back in July so I’m sure they will extend the shade range over time.
It’s exciting to see La Roche Posay extending their Effaclar Duo(+) Range and for me this newest release ticks so many boxes. I could go on about its benefits for a very long time, but keeping it as short as I can, Unifiant is great controlling shine, reducing redness, evening out skin tone, reducing blemish scars and providing a natural tint without clogging pores.
I did notice that La Roche Posay also offer an Unifiant version of my favourite Anthelios Facial SPF which I am excited to try next.
