Moisturiser for oily skin with visible blackheads and uneven skin texture.
Special Price £12.00 Regular Price £16.00



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, blemish-prone skin.*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New be I only bought this today as it was on offer for all 3 products so I thought I'd give it a try after reading all the reviews on it. I have tried so many different products over the yrs from the top range to the cheap end with no difference to my skin as a middle age lady with Very large pores and blackheads and occasionally breakout of spots I have just done the 3 step cleanse tone moisturised my skin feels so clean I cannot believe it as it's never felt this clean before there was a slight tingle after applying the moisturiser but soon went I really hope this product is going to make a huge difference to my skin after so many yrs of misery I will let you know in the coming weeks of it works

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's definitely doing something! I received this to try for the Boots Review Panel and was a bit unsure whether it would make much of a difference as I've previously been using La-Roche-Posay Effleclar Duo and haven't seen any difference, but I must say, after having used this twice a day for over 2 weeks I'm starting to notice the difference. My skin doesn't feel oily halfway through the day or first thing in the morning before washing it and it also feels much smoother too. I haven't noticed any difference in colour correction, but that's not what it was really designed for. Overall, it's definitely a decent product and worth a try if you have issues with oily skin midday or first thing in the morning before you wash your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for spot prone skin I bought this item a couple of months ago and can't recommend it enough. I've suffered with adult acne for about 5 years and tried pretty much everything including on prescription medication - nothing seemed to work. After using this item my skin feels fresher, cleaner and most importantly clearer. I finally have the confidence to go without make up. If you suffer with acne try this product!

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 Love this Love this mosturiser. I used it before applying my make up. It soaks in well, doesn't leave skin feeling greasy and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer Can't recommend this product enough. I'd describe my skin as reactive, oily, acne prone, I have pores everywhere that gets angry and blocked. I've been using this for a few weeks now as a treatment before bed and my skins clear, soft and blemish free! I use the toleraine moisturiser during the day too and that's been great, very happy with the results :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. No breaks out on oily skin. Skin has never been better

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!
