Review: La Roche Posay Effaclar AI Targeted Breakout Corrector

Hello my lovelies :) hope you've all had a nice start to the week so far :) Today, I am going to review another product which I use as part of my struggle to get rid of the occasional zits that choose my face to sit on and develop a life of their own... La Roche Posay Effaclar AI Targeted Breakout Corrector.

I actually bought this product at a time when red, swollen pimples were starting to take over my forehead and cheeks.  I have never suffered from acne or such nasty breakouts like that one before so I was really worried (obviously!) and also, foundation wasn't to blame as I didn't wear any at the time!  Later on, I discovered that the breakout was due to exam stress and now I deal with my exams differently so that I prevent any similar episodes from recurring.  Anyways, my physician recommended me this product.

It comes in a box bearing the same description as the tube but I don't have that anymore.  Here's what the tube looks like (sorry it's a bit battered but I also carry it with me when I have a breakout):

The applicator is like one of those pointy types so that you can control how much product comes out.  I recommend using just a small amount of product because if you use a lot, it will dry and turn to a waxy, white crust... not a good look! Also, to avoid spreading the infection (pimples are infections!), I recommend you squeeze out a tiny amount on your finger (squeaky clean hands!!!) and apply it on the area THT rather than using the applicator to direct the cream on the spot. The texture is creamy enough to be absorbed rapidly on the skin.

I found this treatment really effective in clearing posts in less time and redness is reduced within a day or two, depending how red the pimple is.  Since I got it, I like to use the elf Mineral Blemish Kit and pair it with the cream for a more effective solution.

I would recommend this product but I suggest you consult a professional skin care specialist/dermatologist/doctor before using it so as to make sure it is the right product for you.  This cream retails for €9 for 15ml and can be bought from pharmacies.
