About Face: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel

We get it. You’re born with the skin you’re in. But just because yours may be oily and prone to breakouts doesn’t mean you have to lay down, roll over and accept it at face value. Especially when keeping oily skin in check and unwanted spots at bay is as easy as washing with La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel.

Dermatologist-tested on people with sensitive skin, this paraben, soap and alcohol-free gel can be used from your forehead to your toes every single day. Formulated with a blend of 2 per cent salicylic acid, lipo-hydroxy acid and zinc, the gel gently and deeply exfoliates to remove dead skin cells, excess oil, dirt and grime, while unclogging your pores. This will help to clear up your pimples and spots, refine and minimize your pores, reduce inflammation and acne marks and leave your skin looking and feeling smoother, healthier and clearer.

And because the gel is seemingly doing all the heavy lifting for you, all that’s left to do is leave the handy squeezable tube in your shower, massage a dollop or two all over your face and body, rinse off under the shower, towel off, pat on your favourite face lotion and body lotion and you’re done. Keep it up for 14 days and you may not even recognize yourself in the mirror, because yes, it’s just that good.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel, $16.95 for 200 ml, available at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at www.larocheposay.ca.
