First - My favourite face moisturizer ever is the Origins Balanced Diet. Since I have combination skin (more oily than dry parts) I need a moisturizer that can manage both very oily skin and dry patches. This one does soooo perfectly BUT it's kinda' expensive so when I started saving more money every month I had to check out some new moisturizers.
The choice fell on the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, it says on the tube (first of all I LOVE moisturizer in a tube, so much more hygenic) "Corrective and unclogging anti-imperfection care".
It claims : "Reduces the appearance of imperfections. Unclogs sebum-blocked pores."
I also claims to be well suited under your makeup.
What I think :
I haven't noticed any difference with my pores BUT my skin has cleared up (from using nivea products when being broke last month) in just a week and a half (I had massive breakouts) and my skin feels hydrated but not oily. It sinks in to the skin beautifully. I haven't had any dry patches at all either so that seems to be working out aswell =)
At the pricepoint of 179 SEK vs. 350 SEK for the Origins one it most definately will replace my beloved Balanced Diet. At least for a while ^^
