REVIEW: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat

Hello everyone :)

I'm back with another review for you, I hope you'll enjoy it ;) Today I'll share with you my opinion on the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat moisturizer. La Roche-Posay is a French skincare brand, for anyone that doesn't know. In basic, the Effaclar line is designed for those of us who have numerous imperfections like blocked pores, blemish prone and uneven skin tone.

What they promise: "an oil-free blotting effect texture with a proven long lasting mattifying effect resulting in moisturized, mattified skin immediately which works excellently as a make up base. Prolonged use in mornings and/or evenings claims to refine skin texture, tighten pores and slow down sebum production."

The packaging is nice, it has a squeeze top.  Give it a gentle squeeze and you can easily control how much product comes out. This however becomes a pain when you're coming to the end of a tube.

I didn't have a problem with my skin texture before, but I've noticed my skin feels really soft and smooth lately. I haven't really noticed a difference in my pores and also I didn't notice it had an impact on sebum production.

Well I don't know, but this product didn't impress me, especially for the price. It does make a good makeup base, but for that only you can find much cheaper makeup bases..

- good makeup base
- does make your skin smooth

- the price
- doesn't tighten my pores
- doesn't slow down the sebum production

All in all I'm quite disappointed in this product, I expected a lot more.
Let me know what you think ;)
