I really wanted to share my thoughts with you on this product, as I have found it to work really well for me.
If you are into what happens in the beauty world of things, then you may or may not have heard about French skincare being one of the best out there. I have heard so much about La Roche Posay that I really wanted to try something in their brand. Here is what I chose and why.
My skin tends to ALWAYS have breakouts around that time of the month, when I was in my teens my skin used to heal a lot quicker, a dab of tea tree oil and the blemish would be gone. As I have gotten older I have noticed that once a spot appears.... it's here to stay for a while. What makes the spot stay even longer is my BAD habit of sometimes picking the spot (PLEASE DONT PICK, if I can't stop myself I want to stop you), which in turn makes my skin scar :(
Every month I'm constantly dealing with this vicious circle which has become really frustrating as my skin is never fully clear. Then I stumbled upon La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I targeted for breakouts and blemishes, it is supposed to lighten marks left behind after that pesky spot or potential new ones that are surfacing on the skin. I couldn't help but think its too good to be true but looking for something new to work on my skin, I was willing to give it a go.
I applied it at night to an old blemish mark and I also applied it to a spot I could see appearing under my skin. How I applied it, was locally which basically means just on the imperfection not everywhere. It is a creamy texture and when I applied it it disappeared into my skin. I must admit I did think 'oh this is not going to do anything as i couldn't 'feel' anything happening'. When I woke up in the morning I couldn't see a difference on the old mark, but my under skin spot had completly disappeared.
I have now been using this for 3 weeks and I have to say it is now my staple zit zapper!! I have not come across a product that works so well on my hormonal and aftermath breakouts. I have found that although the old marks haven't disappeared, they have significanty lightened. Any potential breakouts I can tell are going to come up I apply this and they don't seem to come to surface. I have found that if one does sneakily creep to the surface, once applied it shrinks it and gives it a little neat head. Gross I know.
Overall I am very happy with this little tube, I also love that it comes in a squeezy tube as it is much more hygenic then double dipping in a pot of something.
Big thumbs up thank you La Roche Posay I am excited to try other products in your range.
What do you use to zap that zit?
