La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ Blemish treatment has been highly rated by shoppers for reducing the appearance of spots and blackheads, as well as the more recent skin complaint of "maskne".

So it is music to our ears to learn the top-rated blemish treatment is now on sale as part of Boots' £10 Tuesday deal, but the discount is only until the end of the day so the clock is ticking. 

Why we rate it 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ Blemish treatment not only targets blemishes, helping to achieve a clearer complexion, but also hydrates skin, which is unusual for a spot skincare product. 

The product is formulated for oily and acne-prone skin. The dual action gel contains niacinamide, lipo hydroxy acid and salicyclic acid - all of which work to reduce the appearance of spots, unclog blocked pores and minimise pigmentation and scarring. 

The formula also contains glycerin, which is what helps to hydrate the skin. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ Blemish treatment claims to achieve clearer skin in four weeks, all you have to do is apply over the face morning and evening, and let it work its magic. 

Want to give it a try?

It has been reduced from £17 to a bargain £10 at Boots, as part of Boots' £10 Tuesday deal, so you will have to act quick if you don't want to miss out as the offer will be gone after today. 

What the reviews say

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ Blemish treatment has received hundreds of reviews from shoppers, with some hailing it a "wonder product" and a "game changer".

  • "I have been using this product for two-three weeks and I am incredibly impressed. I came off the Pill last year and then went back on, which really messed with my hormones. I have been suffering with awful hormonal spots and nothing was helping. Found this wonder product and I am so happy that it is helping to clear my skin slowly. I am currently having purges but the spots are different and are clearing far quicker. I have high hopes this will continue and I'll get my skin back."

  • "My friend recommended me this since I developed severe Maskne (acne from wearing mask) from wearing a mask all day as I work as a nurse. After using this product, I didn’t develop any new pimples and it makes my spots lighter. I’ve been using it for a month now and I love the results."

  • "I have always suffered from acne and now at 34 I'm still suffering. I'd been using Epiduo prescribed by my GP but it just didn't work. Thought I'd give this a go and within two weeks I didn't have a single spot."

  • "I was a little dubious that this product would work as I've tried all kinds of similar products without them making much of a difference; but I can honestly say that even after the first use I started to notice that my blemishes weren't as noticeable and were fading. I was also concerned that it would dry my skin out because of the ingredients and that it was aimed at oily skin and I have dry, but it didn't! In fact it even left my skin soft and smooth, so much so that I didn't need to use a moisturiser with it and It is also a great base for makeup."

  • "This is a product that I keep going back to without fail. Really helps my acne and keeps my skin fresh. I like layering it under my foundation and it’s slowly helping me to reduce scarring. It’s a bit pricey but worth every penny considering the amount of money I wasted on products that didn’t work as well as this."
