La Roche-Posay Changed My Skin

La Roche-Posay Changed My Skin

We all have a skincare story. Whether it’s positive, negative or in my case, indecisive. One would hope that their complexion chronicle would finish with a happy ending, right?

When your face is beaming with radiance and your skin’s surface is clearer than a summer’s blue sky, you can’t help but feel great. Good complexion days are the new good hair days, but why can’t this be the same for all of us? The struggle of having one face with a multitude of concerns is oh-so real, but not as real as the personal experiences you’ll read below. Get ready to close your problematic facial care chapter and hear some real skincare success stories. Are you ready to feel enlightened?


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Collection

”You know those moments where you need to pinch yourself to see if something is real? After 3 weeks of using this kit, I had to do exactly that!”

Problem: Acne
Solution: La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System
Story: Chelsey, Escentual Team Member

Call me the acne/blemish kit advocate. After years of failing medication, I gave up and decided to put up with my blemishes because I thought I was cure-less. Growing up with spots was tough, but growing up and working within the beauty industry with them was a little harder. All eyes are on you and your appearance, and when you’re battling with un-concealable acne, some people tend to listen less closely to your opinion on skincare.

After breaking down in tears after one customer called me spotty,  all drastic measures were welcome. Blemishes completely knocked my confidence. But luckily for me, the La Roche-Posay Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System changed my skin for the better. My lumps and bumps diffused, and my skin’s texture visibly clearer. Hearing the ‘Wow, what have you been using on your skin’ questions were the compliments that did it for me. Commit to this kit and I promise that you’ll never look back!

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5

Cicaplast has saved my skin so many times, not to mention cheaper than countless trips to the dermatologist – @teambrice

Problem: Dryness and Dermatitis
Solution: La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 – Soothing Repairing Balm
Story: Laura (@Teambrice), Escentual Customer

I basically had awful acne and went to a dermatologist who prescribed me Roaccutane which caused all my skin to dry out and flake severely. And as a side effect I also got really bad dermatitis on my hands. Cicaplast literally completely healed my hands and face. I’ve used them all in conjunction with each other- the Balm, the Hands and the Lip Balm! The whole range was a life saviour.

I’m so happy with this stuff. I love La Roche-Posay. – Bathsheba10

Problem: Milia
Solution: La Roche-Posay Redermic [R] Anti-Ageing Concentrate Intense
Story: Bathsheba10, Escentual Customer

I haven’t used any retinoids or retinol products for at least a year and a half because I was pregnant. Then a milia appeared on my cheek close to my nose and stayed there for months. I started using this product and within about 3 weeks the milia was gone! I am so impressed. I was considering visiting a beautician to have the milia removed for £50 or more but now I don’t have to.

  • LRP actually saved my face! I’ve dealt with acne for years and ever since discovering Effaclar Duo and the entire Effaclar range my skin is lookin’ lovely and clear. Along with Alpha-H, La Roche-Posay is my favorite skincare brand. They make my 29 year old face look much younger – people still think I’m a teen!

      Yay! I’m so glad that La Roche-Posay worked so well for you, Selma. Duo is too good for words, our customers can’t get enough of it. Judging by your profile picture, you have gorgeous skin so your current regime must be working a treat! – Chelsey

    Omg a grown adult cried because someone said she had spots… wow talk about generatorion snowflake.

      Hey Sarah,

      I hope you enjoyed my post, have you tried any of the La Roche-Posay products before? I forgot to mention that the above situation was in my teens, mid-shop floor sale! But you’re right, I am little snowflake at heart, especially when it comes to my skin. I guess everyone has their touch points with their confidence – thank heavens for La Roche-Posay, they sorted me out big time! – Chelsey

        I have to say Chelsey: that has to be the most mature and kind response I’ve seen to a rude-ass commenter in my life. Bravo. And I don’t think the tears make you a little snowflake; people who have never struggled with breakouts will never know the overwhelming embarrassment you feel when someone comments on your acne, especially at work.
