Highly Effective Products + La Roche-Posay = Dermatological Skincare:
I remember stumbling upon this brand and my interest was immediately taken when I came across their site. I'd heard about their products here and there, but I hadn't really made much thought of it to dig a bit deeper.
What I found, was that this brand is composed of over 25,000 dermatologists worldwide and that they pride themselves in curating quality products that can be utilized on even the most sensitive of skin :) They focus on providing items that are proven and tested to be non comedogenic; their packaging is also minimized in order to reduce possible contamination.
With strict standards and formulations, La Roche-Posay is a brand that anyone can use without worry- they demand super high standards in an industry that doesn't always demand such quality and that says quite a bit about them.
It's one of the many reasons why I've enjoyed featuring & recommending products from La Roche-Posay in the past, here at The Beauty Closet...and it's also why I'm recommending one of their fav products that I've come across yet.

The Beauty Closet Recommends:
Dermatological 3-Step Acne Sytem
There are a lot of acne systems out on the market and some of them are super expensive and don't always make that much difference. Nothing is a miracle cure, but if you do spend a good amount of change on a system that claims it helps keep clear skin and prevent future breakouts...you expect it to work! Unfortunately, many of these kits don't bring what they promise and sometimes even make your acne-prone skin worse. This is especially difficult if you have sensitive skin too, as many of these products and kits contain ingredients that cause irritation and other unwanted side-effects.
That's not what you get with this kit at all. At just around $30 this is hands-down, one of the BEST acne 3-step system kits I've come across. It has all the right ingredients that when used in combination, have made a world of difference in my own skin. Not only is it much clearer, I haven't had any major breakouts since I began using the kit daily and I've noticed that my skin is ultra-soft, smooth, and healthy! I've seen a big turn-around in how much I've had to struggle with keeping it clear and it's continued to work- my skin has only looked better with every day I use it. It's really hard to believe that it's only $30 :0
The 3 products included, each contain acne-fighting ingredients: a 2% Salicylic Acid content in the medicated gel cleanser, Glycolic Acid & .5% Salicylic Acid in the clarifying lotion, and a 5.5% Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide acne medication. I'm very picky when it comes to cleansers and I found this one to be easy to use with a squeeze tube and a gel-like texture; it also will foam up with little effort and rinses clean to leave your face feeling like you actually washed it- with no residue left behind! There's no annoying scent either and this is the perfect facial cleanser for those with sensitive skin that are trying to keep acne at bay :)
As for the clarifying solution, I found this product to be fantastic as well! It's easy to use with a quick snap-open top that will let you get out just the right of product out for application. You can use a cotton ball or pad and put on just a bit of product [until it's slightly damp/few drops] and then apply to your face. It dries in a snap too, so there's not much effort or time wasted on this 2nd important step in the Effaclar System.
The 3rd step in the system is probably my fav product out of all 3- this stuff really does work. The dual-action acne treatment does just what it says it will do: it penetrates deeply into the skin and fights all types of acne, that smooths skin's texture at the same time- with the micro-exfoliating lip hydroxy acid! Overall, this truly is one of the best acne-fighting kits I've found and I would recommend this one for any age or skin type.
