There may be nothing that La Roche Posay as a brand can't counter when it comes to skin issues and complaints. One of my all time Holy Grail products is the miraculous Cicaplast Baume B5, but Effaclar Mat, to me, is more than a solution, it's a wonderful addition to my daily skincare.
Whilst my skin is normal, like the best of us, the warmer weather and my busier schedule toward the end of the school year means my make up is literally melting off my face at every given opportunity. That's where Effaclar Mat has stepped in. It makes several hugely useful promises such as:
- Helps neutralize shine for lastingly matte, clear and balanced skin
- Light, oil-free formula; leaves skin feeling fresh
- Helps clear sebum-clogged pores at the source
My pores are visibly reduced even before my make up glides on, unlike many other silicone based primers (I'm giving you the side eye here, Porefessional), this doesn't roll on my skin or clog my pores. Shine is eliminated effortlessly and continuously. Effaclar Mat lasts all day and removes quickly and cleanly come nightfall.
Priced at €17.25 from all good pharmacies, if you're on the market for a new primer or suffering from a case of the shinies, Effaclar Mat is certainly worth a look. This tube was sent for review but I will be repurchasing along with Cicaplast ad infinitum.
Do you have a favourite primer or, even better, a favourite LRP product?
