Effaclar K(+)

30 ml
Moisturiser for oily skin with visible blackheads and uneven skin texture.



Daily moisturiser to regulate skin prone to oiliness, blackheads and uneven skin texture.


Specifically formulated for oily, blackhead-prone skin. Exfoliates and nourishes to progressively transform the skin's surface, leaving the skin feeling smoother and fresher. Regulates combination to oily skin, helps reduce visibility of blackheads and improve skin texture and shine. The ultra-fresh and non-oily aqua gel texture is quickly absorbed and offers all-day moisturisation and comfort.

  • For oily, combination and blackhead-prone skin
  • Quickly absorbed, mattifying and hydrating
  • Helps unclog pores and visibly reduces the appearance of blackheads


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.


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.*


The minimalist formula contains no preservatives, no parabens, no soap, no colourants and no lanolin. It is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (won't block pores).

Customer Reviews

Effaclar K(+) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
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 Cannot rate enough! I started using this about four weeks ago and it's absolutely incredible. I used to suffer with redness and slight scarring from hormonal breakouts but this has cleared it up COMPLETELY and left me with soft, blemish free skin. This is a great base before applying my make up too and doesn't leave my face feeling greasy. I can't recommend this enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glides on the skin! I've repurchased this little beauty three times now because I just can't find another lightweight moisturiser that I can use morning and night, which doesn't feel heavy or sticky on my skin, and which acts as a great base for makeup. I feel it sinks into my skin very quickly and you forgot it's even on there. Will keep repurchasing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light moisturiser Bought this over a week ago now. It's a light moisturiser that melts into your skin. I can't say i've noticed a huge difference to my complexion but I've not used it long. It certainly doesn't make it any worse. Doesn't make skin feel greasy and keeps it matte looking for most of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is love for your skin! I knew this product when I was in a trip, ´cause in Brazil there isn´t this. Always when I have breakouts, or I simply feel my skin with some imperfection - Effaclar K is the solution! This modifies your skin - in a soooooo better way! It´s fantastic! It´s all about love to your skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Great product. My skin became soft with this product. It makes a little esfoliation and keeps my skin clean and with no oiliness. I'm using it one month and I can see the benefit that it gave to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing My skin didn't improve after using this product for over a month and in fact made it a little worse. Very disappointed.
