La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Unifiant

Last week, I spotted something new from La Roche-Posay in Boots; a BB cream/skincare hybrid that I couldn't wait to get my hands on.

La Roche-Posay Unifiant retails for GBP 16.50 and can be bought HERE.

I was expecting great things from this product for a number of reasons. Firstly, because Vichy, La Roche-Posay's parent company has an outstanding range of foundations (Dermablend, I'm looking at you- post HERE) so I knew the quality of Unifiant would be of a similarly high standard. And secondly, because I've been a huge fan of the Effaclar line for years. In fact, anything from the La Roche-Posay and Vichy enterprise has never failed to deliver exceptional results.

Effaclar Duo has been a staple in my bathroom cabinet for years so I was understandably beyond excited to learn they'd come out with a tinted formula. My skin has been on the warpath since I switched contraception. More often than not, I'm going out with no make-up on whatsoever, in the vague hope that this'll help my skin situation a bit. But with this product, I can get a little bit of coverage and an evened-out skin tone while still reaping the skin-clearing benefits of Effaclar Duo. The light shade suits my skin the best, although the two shade options leave a lot to be desired for. In the week that I've been using it, I've noticed fewer of the smaller spots that have been plaguing me recently and some of the bigger ones seem to be healing faster. Understandably, (but still unfortunately) it hasn't helped any of the larger, more cystic spots. 

I've been applying this every day and I feel like my skin looks a lot clearer and fresher so I'm really happy I picked it up! I know this product only been released recently, but have you tried it out? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
