La Roche-Posay Moisturisers

Not often do I fall hook line and sinker for a skincare brand but the French dermatologist approved La Roche-Posay has me become a firm devotee - especially their moisturisers! Their comprehensive skincare range tackles all your skin needs from blemishes, redness to dehydrated skin - you're bound to find something to suit you. I've been so impressed with their products over the last year or so, I use to flit around and never stick to one moisturiser but here are my 3 favourites that are in constant rotation, targeting my different skin concerns.

First up anyone with blemish prone skin is bound to have heard of the infamous Effaclar Duo+, I remember when I first saw this on Ruth's Youtube channel I was hooked, something that actually clears and soothes your skin, unclog pores and controls shine. I have gone through countless tubes of this stuff, I use it mainly on my T zone on troublesome days and the Salicylic Acid helps keep blemishes at bay and calms breakouts.

Another great everyday moisturiser is the Effaclar H, which is ideal for my combination skin. It soothes and hydrates dry areas but also keeps my oily T zone in check. It's my go to face cream that feels nice and light, non greasy and great for blemish prone skin that's been a bit stripped back from spot fighting products. It contains essential lipids to nourish skin with the moisture that it needs without clogging your pores. Can you tell I love it?! This is a staple in my skincare routine, you can read my full review on La Roche Posay Effaclar H here.

As the sun is hotting up, a recent purchase is their Anthelious XL SPF 50+ Lightweight Fluid, this stuff is seriously the bees knees when it comes to protecting your skin from harmful rays, in a super light weight formula. It offer broad spectrum protection, water resistance and also ideal for sensitive skin. This particular version is aimed for normal to combination skin, with a non greasy effect. It sits nicely under my makeup too, I'm so pleased I picked this up! Just be warned it's a little runny but blends it really easily.

What are your favourite La Roche Posay products?

  1. Hey hanh! Effaclar H sounds like something that would work on me.. I also like their Tolerine Riche for winters too.. its very hydrating.. the fluid version is good for summers


  2. I'm planning on making a few La Roche-Posay purchases as my combo skin is having some major tantrums at the moment but I didn't even notice the Effaclar H. Thanks so much for recommending it! Sounds like it would definitely suit my skin!

  4. It's a life saver for when my skin gets dry from over cleansing! I think it's good to switch up skincare in the winter too :)

  5. I would recommend the Effaclar H if you have combination skin, that needs a bit of replishment and nourishment :)

  6. Hi Jessica, I agree it's a must have in my routine when my skin freaks out and it doesn't make it worse!
    Thanks for reading :)

  7. I agree, I don't know how I kept my skin in check before using that!

  8. The Effaclar duo is amazing, I have no idea how I got on with out it! How is the texture of the Anthelious XL, does it leave any residue on your face? I bought a sunblock (50 SPF) from CeraVe and it seems to leave a thin white film, eww... unless that's my skin peeling off. Double eww. TMI. SORRY! Hi I'm new to your blog. <_< I love your blog, I'm following via Bloglovin.

    I hope you will check out mine!
