La Roche Posay Cicaplast B5 Balm & La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +*

Flashback a few weeks ago and my skin hated me. Spotty, scabby and quite frankly a mess. I've been using a combo of two La Roche Posay products to bring my skin back from looking like I'd contracted the plague to hydrated, plump and (relatively) spot free. La Roche Posay is a skincare range that I literally cant fault, Everything I’ve tried from the brand just works. From their cleansers to their spot treatments, it just plain and simple works. However my personal dream team come in the form of two LRP classics and today I'll be chatting you through them.

I cant live without is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, which has now been reformulated and rebranded as La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus +. I talked about recently and said I’d get back to you lot on my thoughts and I have zero problems with it at all. It’s like a souped up Effaclar Duo (Which I hear has been discontinued!) I’ve noticed noticeable scarring reduction and red marks going within a few days. This stuff is seriously good for problem skin and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Then I added the La Roche Posay Cicaplast B5 balm into my routine. I remember reading some where that it was good for healing  the skin. As I had these awful scabby post spot patches everywhere I needed hydration and healing power in one product. It's athick cream which I use as a overnight treatment all over my face. A bit like a face mask, I'd cover my whole face and go to sleep. Every morning my skin would look better and better and much fresher. My scabs soon healed and I was left with plump smooth skin. It's a great all round product which can be used on elbows, hands and lips. I do think it's a little TOO thick for my combo skin so I have started using it sparingly, but when I was in Paris I picked up La Roche Posay Cicaplast which is a more serum like texture and much lighter on the skin.

Have you tried anything from La Roche Posay?
