Review- La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo

The video above is for a review of Effaclar Duo by La Roche-Posay. I wish I had found this product year ago because it has done wonders for my skin. If you are struggling with acne I encourage you to watch it or continue reading below.

What is Effaclar Duo? 

It is an acne treatment and hydrating lotion that helps treat acne prone skin and control oily skin. It’s made in France and I had to go all the way there to get it. But it was worth it. It contains micronized benzoyl peroxide (5.5%) which targets acne deep in the skin. It also has micro-exfoliating LHA to provide exfoliation to clear away dulling cellular debris and oil. It is non-drying and oil free.

What I like about it

I love this product for 3 major reasons

1. It is very easy to use. Unlike other skin care treatments where you have to use a whole line of products and stick to a rigid skin care regime, effaclar-duo is simple. I cleanse my face with any cleanser of my choice and then apply the lotion. No fuss no hassle! The directions explain to use 3 times a day but  when I started using it I only used it once a day and still saw a big improvement in my skin.

2. You’re not obligated to use the product for life. Some acne treatments work wonders …until you stop using the product. I dislike those types of treatments. Effaclar duo heals your skin and lets you use other products without risking a return to your acne prone skin.

3. It targets under the skin pimples. Before effaclar-duo I was struggling with pimples under the skin, so while my skin looked ok from a distance it didn’t feel smooth and I was constantly getting breakouts. Nothing I used seemed to control these “under the skin” breakouts. Once the pimples came to surface they’d be hideous whiteheaded menaces that made my skin unattractive. Effaclar duo changed all that.

What I don’t like about it

The biggest con is its price. It’s nearly $4o for the tube. Now while I don’t mind that kind of investment on my skin and having clear skin to me is worth it. It’s not exactly a budget friendly option for taming your acne.

The price alone is not enough to turn me away and many people, like myself, have given this product a 5/5. If you are looking for something that will aid you in your battle against acne then I highly recommend checking out Effaclar Duo by La Roche-Posay

Why everyone is talking about Punch Skin care

punchmoisturizer

I must be living under a rock, because this amazing skin care product, Punch Skin care, almost slipped under my radar. I noticed it on Amazon and one of the first things that stood out were its rave review. Everyone seems to love this product! With my curiosity peaked, I had to find out what made Punch so special.

Now, Punch Skin care has a line of different products, but I’m focussing on the moisturizer.

Looking at the ingredients, I could tell this was a premium product. To list just a few of the good for your products found in this moisturizer: organic witch hazel, organic grape seed extract, organic sesame seed extract, Vitamin A, and dandelion leaf extract. No wonder people were seeing amazing skin transforming results. These ingredients on their own can do wonders for the skin. But combined they greatly improve the look and feel of your skin.

How can Punch Moisturiser help your skin?

1. Cell Renewal: This moisturizer contains small protein peptides that stimulate cell renewal and strengthen collagen fibres. This is important in fighting the ageing process. As we get older, our skin loses it’s elasticity but with the help of these protein peptides you can give your skin a more toned appearance, which makes it look fuller, firmer, and younger.

2. Antioxidants: Young or old, female or male,  everyone needs to be concerned with stimulating antioxidant production in your skin. It is not only important for keeping your skin looking healthy, but it’s essential for protecting you against sun damage. Punch Skin care kept this in mind and thus their moisturizer helps to increase natural antioxidant production.

Bonuses

This product is oil free. This is important to me because, as someone whose skin is oily and breaks out easily, I can use this worry free knowing that I’m not adding to an existing skin problem.

A little goes a long way. On amazon this product is 27.55 but don’t let that turn you off. A little goes a long way! You only need a small thumb size amount to get the effects of this moisturiser.

I’m glad I joined the band wagon on this one, and can see why so many women and men are giving it a five star rating. It’s hard to find any fault with this product or company. Give Punch a try if you are looking for a high quality moisturizer that will make your skin beautiful.

Where to get Phytoceramides in Canada

phytoceramidesA male model wisely advised me to take care of my skin in my twenties because it will be be my skin in my forties. I think there’s a misconception among young people that they don’t need to worry about their skin or concern themselves with things like anti-ageing or keeping their skin looking young. But the fact is, nobody’s skin stays “young” forever. When you’re twenty you may not consider what products you can invest in to help you maintain your youth or slow down your skin’s ageing process but nearly every woman I’ve met over 35 begins to look for ways to get back their skin’s youth and these days men are also joining in as they try to avoid the appearance of growing older. Now, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with ageing and no your skin does not have to look “forever 21” but healthy looking skin boosts your confidence. Also, taking care of your skin is a healthy habit to get into.

There are a lot of products on the market, but one of the most talked about and effective is phytoceramide. What is phytoceramide? Ceramides are things we naturally have in our skin, but lose as we age. The loss of ceramides causes you to lose that plumpness and youthfulness that you have in your skin when you’re younger. The idea of ceramide supplements is not new. They have been in topical solutions and have been used in parts of Asia for years. Now however, the FDA has approved phytoceramides in Canada. Phyto means it’s a plant derivitive. It’s made into a supplement that puts it back into your skin and helps to hydrate the skin from the inside out. Many Doctors, even Doctor Oz, highly recommend taking phytocermaides for your skin’s health.

You may be thinking, great where can I get?! Because those were my thoughts when I learned about the benefits of this little supplement. Phytoceramidescanada.ca/ not only carries the supplement they have created a better formula that helps your skin from both the inside and outside. They offer a Revitol Phytoceramides that is now toted as the best anti-aging cream. Revitol contains key ingredients that include Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid, together they work at penetrating deep into the skin to make it firm it and give it a youthful glow. The phytoceramides and revitol duo that can be found at phytocermacidescanada.ca give you a facelift without the pain or cost of seeing a plastic surgeon. The website offers a 90 day money back guarantee and the product has rave review from customers.

The product offers dramatic results on deep wrinkles, so if you have been battling with wrinkle creams, or know someone that has this will finally resolve the problem. You can visit the website today to get more information and ask for a trial.

Adama Minerals ClayMask Purify Deep Pore Cleanser

A few months ago, I began searching desperately for some skin care products that could treat my clogged pores and help with my acne prone skin. I looked on iherb.com and found Adama Minerals ClayMask Purify Deep Pore Cleanser with great review and decided to take a gamble on it. I’ve been using it for a few months. Usually when I do my review I list some pros and cons I found with the item; however, I actually have only one con with this product so I figured I’d get it out of the way now: it’s not available in my local drug store, health store, or beauty store. When I repurchase this, I’ll have to do so online. This can be a bit of a pain since that means dealing with shipping costs and wait time. But besides that…I love this claymask deep pore cleaner!

For starters, this deep pore cleanser, is 100% vegan, parben free, gluten-free, and contains no sulphates. I’m all for products that can be as harmless for my skin as possible and this contains a list of natural ingredients. There’s also no funny smell to deal with either. Does it work though?

IT DID FOR ME

Before I used it, my face was an absolute mess. Grotesque pimples and blemishes had taken over my skin. After the first time I used this deep pore cleaner, I noticed a slight difference in the size of my zits. After continuous use, I noticed I wasn’t getting the giant zits I was before and it’s a great spot treatment when I do get hormonal pimples. My skin is so much more improved—smooth, less blemishes, fewer breakouts, and it controlled my oily skin problem.

It’s very easy to use, and a little goes a long away. I’ve used a lot of clay masks, some more expensive than this but this one is my favorite. It doesn’t irritate sensitive skin and does what it claims to do. My pores feel less clogged and I have noticed the minerals that are meant to firm the skin has also helped me look younger.

The price varies depending on where you purchase it, thought it usually runs between 12-16 dollars. To me, it’s worth it and cheaper than some of the other products out there that claim to do the same thing.

I use it about 2 or 3 times a week and I always notice an improvement after each use. All those months of hunting for a great mask was worth it. I give it a 4.5/5.
