  • Quickly absorbed, mattifying and hydrating

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

Enriched with exfoliating salicylic acid + LHA to unclog pores and prevent excess sebum from oxidising into comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Also contains antioxidant vitamin E to shield the epidermis and an anti-sebum complex [Carnosine + Airlicium (tm)] to protect the skin with proteins. Airlicium, is a mattifying agent that can hold up to 4x more oil than the weight of the formula. These ingredients work in tangent to have a synergic effect on squalene oxidisation, ensuring fresher-feeling skin.

DERMATOLOGICALLY TESTED

Effaclar has been through rigorous dermatological testing to ensure it is suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin.

9/10 dermatologists would recommend La Roche-Posay Effaclar for oily, spot-prone skin.*

MINIMALIST HYPO-ALLERGENIC FORMULA

Effaclar K(+) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oily skin from polluted London air - solved! Having lived in the London for the past 4 years, the biggest challenge has been to find a product that solves for the effects the polluted air and commuting conditions have on your skin. You're left with blemishes, oily, dirt that translate into "commuter's acne". This product has dramatically improved my skin. I barely get spots any longer, as they don't even have the chance to appear. Skin stays smooth and well balanced all day. Ideal for my sensitive skin as well. The result is I look fresh and have even stopped wearing foundation because of it. Love, love, love it. Current skincare routine includes: Morning: Wash gel, thermal mist, hydrating eye cream, effacular k+ Night: Micellar water, thermal mist, anti-wrinkle eye cream, night cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I have super oily skin and after using this two weeks in the morning and evening there has been a noticeable difference. The main one being I do not have to reaply my makeup halfway through the day due to oil. Wearing it as a base under my makeup has controlled the oil breakout for the rest of the day. The only think I could wish for would it be a little bit less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely to put on before foundation Since I was sent this I've been using it instead of a primer and this product makes my foundation go on so smoothly! Creates a lovely base to work with. It isn't greasy or thick and soaks into the skin quickly too. I sometimes put a bit on at night and my skin feels super soft the next day. Definitely would buy it again! The only thing is though is the packaging I received it in was squashed when it was delivered, so I would maybe advise better packaging :) Overall, a fab product and I will definitely be buying another tube when I run out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product I haven't been using this product for long but I must admit it does seem amazing. I love the texture and the fact that it is not greasy. After I apply it to my face, my face feels lovely and soft and it does not "shine" for a long time.The only thing I don't like much is the container, as after I press it a bit to use the product, it keeps coming out but that is possibly only while there is still a lot of it in the container. Maybe a pump would be better. I truly recommend this moisturiser, despite its price, as a little goes a long way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all I am very bad at using a moisturiser/primer on my face, even at my age but I'm always willing to try new things. This was very expensive for the small amount you get, but it does make your skin feel lovely. Not sure I really noticed the smell or whether it reduces blackheads as I don't really have too many of those, but it did glide on beautifully and you feel like your skin is thanking you! It was quite hard to undo the cap and get into the tube first, so I had to ask my other half to open it for me - maybe I was just being blonde!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A moisturiser that doesn't stay sticky Leaves skin feeling soft and fresh, I have used so many different moisturisers in the past. This one is definitely one of the top. It soaks in leaving skin soft, not sticky. My skin is oily and I really recommend this if your skin is oily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoothing and moisturising Does exactly what it says! Has a lovely fresh smell and glides effortlessly onto the skin and sinks in right away. A great Base for make up which creates a more flawless smooth look whilst being moisturising at the same time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less than impressed As a moisturiser I find this product does the trick - it feels nice and is easily applied, it leaves my face feeling moisturised, it is also gentle for my sensitive skin and it smells lovely - though I am not sure how I feel about using a product so highly perfumed on my face. However I feel on the product doesn't live up to its special claims - its stated the moisturiser is good for oily skin, reduces the appearance of black heads and can be used as a make up base. I found none of these to be true, my skin still appears oily - no matteness as described, I have actually gained some new black heads since using the product and I found it awful as a make up base - it made my make up flakey. On another note I also hated the packaging, it looks chic and expensive but I actually just found it impractical, in order to get the lid to go back on it ends up squirting half the product everywhere, very wasteful. Overall, I would recommend this product to someone with sensitive skin that wants a standard facial moisturiser, but not for much else.
