New Additions to my Skincare Routine

La Roche Posay Effclar Duo Acne Oily Skin care Micellar Solution


La Roche Posay Micellar Solution

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo

Elemis Fresh Skin Super Boost Moisturising Serum*

Just a few thing’s I am going to be slotting into my skincare routine. My skin has been behaving a bit weirdly lately, I’ve been having a few breakouts, along with some dry patches, and some odd reaction to something. A very lovely sight!

I bought the Miccellar Solution as I have heard a lot about Bioderma, and as it’s so hard to get here, I thought this would make a good alternative. I used it to remove my make – up last night and was amaed at how quickly and gently it got rid of it all! A brilliant alternative for people who are addicted to face wipes! It costs £11.50 for 200ml.

The Effaclar Duo is a hard one to describe, I will be using it implace of moisturiser in the morning, and it contains AHA/BHA’s to help clear pores, and calm breakouts. I’ve got high hopes for this and hopefully I will see some good results! It costs £13.50 for 40ml.

I was sent the Elemis Super  Boost Serum* and will be using it at night under my moisturiser, I have used it a couple of times so far and it feels gorgeous on the skin. Really moisturising, but not greasy and sinks in quickly. A great moisture boost for younger women with dehydrated skin.

I’ll be doing an updated skin care routine in a few weeks, when  I have had a really chance to test these products and settle into a real routine! In the mean time look out for a few more ‘Dealing with Acne’ posts, as I will be posting one on Exfoliating and Cleansing very soon!


Disclosure: The Elemis Serum was sent for my consideration by PR.


  1. Elemis skincare is gorgeous. I'd love to hear what you think of this when you've tried it for a bit longer.

    1. I've been lusting after some Elemis products for a while, I'm dying to try their Bath products! The Serum is beautiful so far, really light, but still hydrating + no breakouts!
