La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask Review

la roche-posay effaclar clay mask review

When it comes to skin, I'm pretty lucky. I rarely get spots, never get dry skin, no eczema. In fact, two of my best friends confessed this morning that they were Whatsapping each other the other day about how nice my skin was! *blushes* (I didn't make that up, I promise.)

However, I do suffer from oily skin. Well actually, 'suffer' seems a bit strong, because I'm sure there are worse things in life than having to re-apply pressed powder a couple of times during my night out, even if it is a bit annoying!

I feel like the entire La Roche-Posay range was MADE for me. First I fell in love with the Anti-Blemish System (blog here) then the Effaclar Duo[+] Unifiant (blog here) and now their lovely PR team kindly sent me the new clay mask* to review. Directions suggest applying a thin layer to your skin once or twice a week, and promises to absorb sebum (our glands that secrete oil), reduce pore size and cleanse the skin.

I am making more of a conscious effort to get early nights throughout the week (and save my bad behaviour strictly for the weekends) so I got straight to work. I don't have the patience to wait for clay masks to spend hours drying, and luckily this one dries in rapid time! In fact, you only have to leave it on for 5 minutes for it to work it's magic.

I noticed my skin felt instantly 'cleaner', which sounds a bit grim but it's hard to get that super clean feeling when you wear eyelash extensions because you never feel like you can scrub your face properly. (I do wash my face properly by the way guys, but you know what I mean when you just scrub your face under the shower head- yeah it's not that easy for me.) And now I've used it a couple of times I have noticed the pores on my nose (/blackheads?!) are basically non-existent. It's so easy to apply, and so easy to remove (non of that painful charcoal skin-pulling business here!)

I'm definitely going to incorporate it into my weekly evening skincare routine when I feel like my face needs a little TLC. Plus, for £13 it's super purse-friendly! Get yours here.

Have you tried any of the La Roche-Posay Effaclar range? Which is your favourite? 


*I was kindly sent this product, however I am 100% honest in my reviews and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
