Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth it! Does wonders for my skin, isn’t greasy and my skin looks clearer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the only moisturisers that doesn't break me out. Works really well under make up and feels lightweight. My go-to Day Moisturiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been using this for years to combat my acne-prone skin I tend to suffer from break-outs that can sometimes lead to acne if not managed in time. I've been using this for years to prevent break-outs and my skin has healed very nicely since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avoiding breakouts As someone who suffers with breakouts, its been difficult over the years to find a moisturiser that doesn't make my skin too oily whilst also containing an spf but this one works for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spf face cream So far so good! Not burnt my nose! And non greasy, doesn’t clog skin, feels nice and not heavy like a suncream. Taken a lot of goes of different spf moisturiser to find one I like!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great as suncream that doesn't block pores
Date published: 2022-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder product I have used this product for about 4 years now and ever since using I have almost completely prevented breakouts! The spf is an added bonus as I put it on in the morning and don’t need to think about reapplying on a sunny day! Makes skin slightly oilier compared to non-spf but in the same breadth is the best facial sun cream I have used

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Non SPF better Agree with other reviewers - the effaclar duo moisturiser with no SPF is fantastic and my holy grail. However, I felt this version with SPF to be disappointing. Not only did it break me out but compares to the other, it feels heavy and tacky on the skin and I find the smell quite potent - almost an ashy/smoky smell which after using I can smell all day! Wouldn’t recommend this product but definitely recommend the effaclar duo without SPF.
