I was kindly invited to attend an exclusive event to preview La Roche – Posay’s biggest launch of 2016. Their new product the Effacular duo unifant. Unfortunately at the last minute I couldn’t make the event, I was so disappointed to be missing it but Mum duties called. So I was delighted with such a sweet gesture, when they sent me the goodie bag from the event.

My first impressions
The packaging is a simple white tube. I had no expectations as it was my first time using this brand. Little did I expect this magical formula to come out of such a simple white tube! I have being using this product everyday for two weeks and I am in love with it. On applying it, it felt so light and hydrating on my skin. I am not one of those lucky girls with perfect, photo ready skin. I get blemishes, I have enlarged pores and my skin tone is far from even. This product is magic! After applying it I couldn’t believe the sheer coverage from such a light formula. It had evened my skin tone and disguised my blemishes.
I have been applying this under my foundation instead of my primer. It is that amazing I could wear this would on its own if I wanted to give my skin a break from wearing foundation. I have noticed a massive improvement in how my foundation applies and its long-lasting power.
I haven’t even got to my favourite part about this product yet. Wearing this product can actually improve your skin.
