So my birthday has just passed and I got some marvelous beauty products from my lovely mother. I cannot wait to try these items out I have heard such wonderful things about them especially about the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus. My mother truly knows me so well and I am so glad that she got me these fabulous items below.
Here’s what I got:-
As I loved my Soap and Glory face wash so much and it has nearly all gone. 😦 My mum wonderfully got me some more of this, thank god! Don’t know what I could do without this product in my life now. Really looking forward to seeing how the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus fairs up on my face, hopefully it will help with my spot problem as I have been looking for something to help combat these demons for a very long time. So fingers crossed!!
Let me know if you would like me to do a review in a few months time letting you know how I got on with La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus, we’ll have to see if it improves my face to be flawless or…doesn’t.
That’s all from me and luckily my mum helped also fuel my sock addiction by getting me lots more. I am a very happy girl. ^-^
I purchased this product with a bunch of other Soap and Glory items and ever since then I have been unable to stop using this. I have never used a CC Cream before however like a BB cream it is basically a tinted moisturiser with sun protection. A part from this the creams main aim is Colour Correction or Complexion Correcting – note the CC.
As of lately I have had very dry and terrible skin which is not great when trying to apply foundation over the top of it, luckily this CC Cream glides over effortlessly and seems to cover any redness on my skin brilliantly. Unfortunately when it first comes out it appears very very orange… a bit tangtastic I know and this is the lightest shade you can get, it is almost shocking to how orange it is;
Don’t be discouraged by the colour though, it blends nicely on the skin and when powder is applied you can barely tell the difference to your natural skin tone. Just make sure to blend well when using as otherwise your face and neck will look very different indeed, also blend into the neck as you usually would with other foundations to make it less noticeable.
Below is what it looks like when applied alone with nothing else, still a few lumps and bumps noticeable on my skin however there is no unsightly redness that is completely visible.
