Deeply cleanse your skin with La Roche-Posay Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel Wash, an exfoliating cleanser for the face and body which is suitable for blemish-prone, oily skin.

The face wash intensely and hygienically cleanses skin and targets imperfections, such as acne and blackheads, on the face and body. It penetrates skin to unclog pores of dirt and impurities and deeply exfoliates. This process removes dead skin cells, leaving a visibly smoother, softer and cleaner complexion.

The Purifying Gel Wash regulates sebum secretion, whilst also removing excess sebum from the skin. Not only does this stop the skin from appearing oily, it also unblocks the build-up of oil in the pores.

The foaming gel is enriched with high-efficacy ingredients. Salicylic acid and LHA work to exfoliate the skin and unclog pores, whilst the addition of zinc helps to purify the skin and reduce sebum. The formula is also enriched with La Roche-Posay’s thermal spring water, which has soothing properties that treat inflammatory skin conditions, while gently refreshing the skin.

As well as a blemish-prone complexion, back acne is another troublesome area for many people. The skin on your back is 5 times thicker than the skin on your face, so bacteria and sebum can easily build up and result in back acne. This wash is suitable for both the face and body, and effectively targets persistent issues on the back.

Why We Love It

Products aimed at oily and blemish-prone skin types are often too abrasive for sensitive skin. What we love about this product is that La Roche-Posay has made this effective yet gentle cleanser suitable for sensitive skin as well. The minimalist formula is hypoallergenic, while still intensely purifying and cleansing the skin.

How To Use It

Pump a few drops of the gel wash into your hands and work into a foaming lather. Massage onto skin, and rinse off with warm water.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel Wash is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This brand has saved my skin I use this version of the gel wash because my acne is pretty persistent and not just on my face, using this wash means I don’t need to use abrasive scrubs and has been brilliant for other areas I’m affected, even seems to help my folliculitis. I’ve never used anything more effective and it doesn’t dry my skin out either

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product!! I’ve had problematic skin for a while now and this product has helped clear it up straight away! I’m in my late 20’s and my skin has changed so much and has become really oily and I’ve been getting a lot of spots. I started using this a few times a week then reduced to twice a week and it’s helped balance it out. Would highly recommend this and wish I knew about it sooner!! My whole skincare range is La Roche Posay, wouldn’t use anything else it’s been amazing for my acne prone, highly sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I got this for my 14 year old daughter as her acne had flared up in a big way the redness was not calming down and it was worsening by the day. She does use a prescription cream on a night but on it’s own didn’t seem to be doing much so I ordered this to see if it would help. Well it did !!! Her skin is 100% better than it was the spots are almost gone the redness has faded massively and above all her confidence is back !! Thanks La Roche-Posay we love this product
