While in Paris i picked up some moisturising skin care products that have been hyped up in the beauty blogosphere recently. The first, Effclar Duo by La Roche Posay is a primer/moisturiser/serum all in one that makes the face feel silky soft and reduces the appearance of pores ready for foundation, not only that but it tackles acne and those annoying little pimples under the skin throughout the day (god send!!). I have to say i do really like this product mainly because of how clear my face is. If you sometimes have problem skin i would highly recommend giving this a go. I really want to trial some more of the Effclar range if this product is anything to go by. The next skin care product i purchased was the Lait-Creme Concentrate by Embryolisse, which is a moisturiser that is used in most make up artist kits. I have to say this took a lot of getting used to because it is a thick white substance that is kind of greasy and takes a long time to sink into my skin properly, but I do like this product and it does make my dehydrated skin feel plump. I just tend to use this as an over night moisturiser, so i don't have to worry about shine.
The good news is that you can actually get La Roche Posay skincare in the UK at Boots. However, Embryolisse is still strictly found only in French pharmacies, but i think you can find a few online stockists and if you are desperate to try it there is always ebay.
