La Roche Posay knows how to make an awesome skincare product. Their science into the products truly works. If I knew about La Roche Posay when I was a teenager then I really think I would have got rid of my acne or controlled it a lot quicker than I did. The effaclar range is the perfect anti acne range and helps to reduce spots, blemishes and the marks they leave behind. As an avid user of the Effaclar Duo cream I was excited to add the Effaclar Astringent toning lotion to my skincare routine. 

The blue toner works as an astringent exfoliation liquid to take off all your dead skin cells by daily exfoliation. Much like many of the Pixi Glow Tonic/Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Pads/ and similar trending options, this toner works to gently exfoliate, brighten and regenerate the skin.

The properties of the effaclar toner help to diminish blemishes and reduces oils that are likely to cause acne or spots. It contains LHA which is proven acne fighting ingredient and soothing thermal spring water which is known to be a characteristic of LRP products. Together it not only soothes but creates a clean base ready for moisturising.

As this is called an astringent, some may find this slightly strong for sensitive skins but I feel like it really works unlike some toners which are so soothing you can’t feel the effects. You can feel your pores really get cleaned and with continued use, it is said this can help remove blackheads.

This product is the ideal step to add into cleansing and an Effaclar routine. If you’re an avid fan of the Effaclar Duo this step enhances the use of the cream and works in harmony to clear your skin. A product I wish I had tried sooner! For only £9 this lotion [LINK] is perfect for adding to your skincare routine to start budging those spots before summer comes around! It contains citric acid and salicylic acid which are two exfoliants that we’re seeing all over the high-end skincare market that gently exfoliates the skin to reveal clean, bright and blemish free skin.
