I have been applying the moisturiser twice a day after cleansing including around the eye and neck area. The product feels very light which is preferable to me, I found because of this it sinks into the skin quickly. It is just the right level of hydrating for me. My skin feels plump and soft but not greasy and there is no sticky residue left behind.
I have found that my skin gets less oily throughout the day. Before using this cream I would need to blot a couple of times a day at least, but now I can get away with just blotting at lunchtime so I feel a lot more confident in myself knowing that my forehead isn’t glistening!
I can’t say that I have noticed that much of a difference in pore size, but I don’t really believe that any product can shrink them, it is just genetics. However my skin is looking clear and healthy with no signs of breakouts after three weeks of use so I am really pleased.
The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat moisturiser is £14 for a 40ml tube in Boots (who are currently doing 3 for 2 on skincare GO GO GO!). Personally I am more than happy to pay this because I can see a difference in my skin so it is likely to be something that I will repurchase when I finish the tube.
