Hey everybody, so today i am reviewing the LA ROCHE POSAY EFFACLAR DUO(+). This is actually the product which YouTube made me buy. Everyone on YouTube was talking about this product and were sharing their wonderful experience with this product, which made me really very excited to try the product out, also i wanna tell you all that this product is on the expensive side so if you are on a budget this might not be for you.

My Experience : 

OK i will come straight to the point this product didn’t work for me. After trying this product for few weeks i started noticing tiny white bumps on my forehead and sides of my cheeks due to which i stopped using it. There are many products out in the market to which my skin reacts the same way as my skin is extremely sensitive but i had high expectations with this product as this product being a high end product. I don’t really regret buying this product because it works well on my mom’s skin. Her skin is normal to combination, and what i have noticed is that she gets this very nice glow on her face every time she uses this product and even some of her dark spot have been faded little bit but it took a lot of time(approx 1 and half month) for that to happen, she don’t really have acne issues but she used to get big pimples on her jawline area which has been stopped from coming which is really great but you really have to be regular with the product to see good results obviously.
