La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Unifiant

When I received an email inviting me along to the launch of a new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) product I really wanted to go as I'm a huge fan of the original product. But unfortunately I live a couple of hours outside of London and although I do travel over for work (where I'm obviously getting paid) I can't afford to travel over for events. So when La Roche-Posay contacted me saying they knew I was a huge fan of the original product and offered to send me the new product to try I was over the moon!

The new product is Effaclar Duo (+) Unifiant*, which is exactly the same as the original product but this one is tinted to provide a light layer of coverage. Unifiant comes in exactly the same packaging as the original Effaclar Duo (+), although the design on the packaging appears to have been updated a little since I last repurchased the original.

If you're unfamiliar with La Roche-Posay they're a French pharmacy brand that have made their way over to the UK and thankfully are now quite widely available over here. Effaclar Duo (+) is a product designed to correct the appearance of blemishes by uncloging blocked pores, exfoliating the surface of the skin, refining skins texture, accelerating the repair process, rebuilding the skins surface and preventing scaring.

Despite how much I love the original product I had doubts about Unifiant because I'm not a huge fan of light coverage tinted moisturiser type products. I tend to prefer a little more coverage in general and also as I'm quite pale these sort of products are often to dark or orange for me. However I was actually really pleasantly surprised and I'm just as much in love with this product as the original. The shade is currently perfect for my pale skin (I'm not sure if there's any level of shade adapting going on) but it may be a little dark for me once we get into winter and any level of tan I have fades. Although this isn't really the sort of product I would use in winter so this probably won't be an issue. I'm also really surprised by the level of coverage it provides. I do still need to use concealer, but then I also do with my higher level coverage foundations. I would say the level of coverage provided is light, but a good light, as in actually providing some coverage rather than not really looking like you've applied anything. It does a really good job of evening out my skin tone and goes some way towards covering redness.

I would usually only use the standard Effaclar Duo (+) on my chin as a targeted treatment, but I've been using this all over my face and I've found that there has been an improvement in my skin across my whole face. All round this gets a big thumbs up from me!

Unifiant is slightly more expensive than the standard Effaclar Duo (+), which is understandable due to the inclusion of the tint, but I think it is very reasonable at £16.50 and I'd definitely consider purchasing it in the future.

How you tried the Unifiant version of Effaclar Duo (+)?

    1. I didn't try the Effaclar Blur one for some reason, maybe because it's for oily skin? But yes this is very good and I'd recommend trying it x
