I've heard Pinot ( and others!) bang on about this stuff on S and B but never tried it.I found myself in Lloyds Chemist last week and had a good rummage through their huge selection and ended up getting the cream for flaky skin - it's like the BEST moisturiser you can possibly imagine, it glides on and all your redness and flaky 'post cold nose skin' just disappears. It's paraben free and for sensitive skin so not full of nasties.
I went back today and bought the shower wash, cleansing lotion and moisturiser for rosacea - VERY lovely, helpful assistant suggested what would be good AND she gave me some free samples too!
While I was there someone else came up and bought some cream and said 'Oh this is great stuff, you'll love it!' - wonder if she was a mumsnetter?
Sorry for the enthusiasm but this really is good stuff and not too pricey either.
Have to say actually, the anthelios sunscreen does break me out, but it's the only thing in the range that hasn't agreed with me. As well as the Efflaclar and Cicaplast ranges, I also love their toners, the eye cream and the micellar cleanser. The foundation is good too.
fuckinginanelevator - My skin is a bit like that. Oily, but ageing and wrinkly/dry in places. I use the Efflaclar K or Duo in the day time, under my make up, which has basically cleared up my spots and blackheads. At night time I use the Cicaplast all over my face - not every night, maybe 2 or 3 times a week, especially in winter - this helps with the dehydration and wrinkles, it also doesn't clog my pores back up again or cause spots. On the nights I'm not using Cicaplast, I use plain old Rosehip oil.
armagh. I'd like to know that as well. I have dry skin but get breakouts and have found Efflaclar M really good. However it's meant for oily skin! I expect I'd get even better results with another LRP product.
Haven't read the reviews, but Effaclar K has absolutely helped me with my blackhead problem. You could try the Effaclar Duo first? That is the treatment product, whereas Efflaclar K is supposed to be used afterwards as maintenance. I love the K though, as I found the Duo a bit much over long term. Off to read the reviews now . . .
I've got (had!) a horrible spotty, congested chin (40 year old, nice) made a million times worse by recent bereavement and associated stress. The Effaclar K stuff has worked a MIRACLE, a miracle I tells you. I've almost got a normal chin again. Nose was looking a bit ropey too, and it's SO much better now. I've only been using the stuff since Friday! amazing. Have just ordered loads, I never want to run out!
