Oiliness is often caused by a break in the moisture barrier with the skin then overcompensating for the lack of water balance by producing excess oil. This is then often caused by harsh products and ingredients known as surfactants that just strip the skin of all its goodness – Clearasil / Clean & Clear are two of the biggest offenders here… La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Foam Dermo-Soothing Deep Cleansing to the rescue!
I love reviewing Effaclar products from La Roche-Posay because they’re one of the very few brands that know sensitivity is a skin concern and not a skin type. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Micellar Water is designed to gently cleanse the skin, remove impurities, break-away surface dead skin cells and balance surface oil and water.
If you have a tendency to react to products or have very sensitive skin, as I do, then La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra is something that might just be the ticket for you, carrying The British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.
