It is absolutely no surprise to anybody that I LOVE La Roche-Posay skincare. It's the only brand I have found that is designed for oily/blemish prone skin and actually WORKS. Well, it does for me anyway. Since I read a review of the Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System and decided to try it out, I have been hooked on LR-P. So obviously when I was recently contacted to review the brand new Effaclar Duo[+] Unifiant I jumped at the chance!

I already own the award-winning Effaclar Duo[+] cream, and although I am fortunate enough to never really suffer from spots or bad skin (thanks mum!) I do have an oily t-zone. The Effaclar Duo[+] makes an ideal base for my make-up, working as a primer, reducing shine AND keeping my skin hydrated! The tube isn't huge, but you literally need a pea sized amount to cover the entire face- and I have an absolute moon head so I am rejoicing!

N.B- Ignore the fact I appear to be doing the YMCA in these photo's, but I have never taken 'natural' photos of myself and instantly got awkward arm syndrome!

Au Naturale!
The new Effaclar DUO [+] Unifiant contains all the amazing benefits of the Duo[+] with the addition of a sheer coverage. There are two shades, light or medium. Although I am extremely tanned atm *smug face*, the medium shade still adapts perfectly to my skin. It's perfect for wearing to work, especially when I have the daily dilemma or whether I want to get up and put my face on or have 20 minutes longer in bed. And the latter always wins, obviously.

Like I said, the amount you need to use is so small!

(Excuse the bush)

Small additional of a couple of brows, a slick of Carmex, a hairbrush, a bit of mascara and voila! This is my every-day look for work. I have absolutely minimal make-up but my skin looks unified, blemish free and moisturised. All the qualities of my foundation but it feels weightless! Plus it takes about 5 minutes. What's not to love?!
