When I was in the office recently, I overheard my colleague say this exact statement: “I haven’t had a pimple since I started using this product.” Clearly, such a grandiose statement elicited an equally grandiose reaction from moi. Cue me marching back towards her, injecting myself in her conversation and demanding answers. What product? And does it really work? And where do we get it??
Here’s the background: Like most of us this winter, Bravo TV’s sweet-as-pie social media director Abigail Cusick battled breakouts on top of super dry and sensitive skin. Searching for a solution, she decided to give French brand La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Serum a shot in January, and hasn’t looked back since. “I definitely suffer from hormonal/seasonal breakouts and winter is usually the cruelest month for me,” explained Cusick. “This product has made an amazing impact. I’ve seen a noticeable difference in the size of my pores and overall skin tone. Plus, I’ve legit only had one (one!) pimple since I started using it.”
What ingredients does Effaclar comprise that makes it so effective? Well, a brighter, more even skin tone is thanks to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid Glycolic Complex, while the Lipohydroxy Acid exfoliates and tightens enlarged large pores and makes skin texture smoother. Together these acids contain antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anticomedogenic properties, which combat acne and work to achieve healthier skin. Which means less breakouts for you—or in Abi’s case, no pimples! Give the serum a try for yourself, and brighter, clear skin can be yours by summer.
