The Best Skincare in the World

I’m not joking. I’ve tried everything and this is the best skincare I’ve ever used.

I’m one of those unlucky sods who started getting spots when I was 10 (I was literally the first in my class to go through puberty) and 10 years on I still haven’t quite managed to shake them. I don’t really have acne as such or redness, I just get hormonal imbalances that make my skin angry, and everything in the world gets to my skin. I eat and sleep well, but nope, they’re still there.

I’ve tried anything imaginable. Clearasil, Simple, Clean & Clear, prescription washes, even Hibiscrub! The list goes on. I went to the Docs and they prescribed me medicated roll on things, and oxytetracyline tablets, but NOTHING seemed to work. My mum’s one of those forum gurus on Netmums and places like that where women exchange tips and tricks and have a good old natter about what to try next.

And then, I found it. I finally found it. I now have the perfect skincare, and even the perfect tablets.

If any of you out there haven’t used or heard of La Roche-Posay, I would advise you have a read and look on their website. It is AMAZING.

It’s a French brand (oo-lah lah!) that specialises in all sorts of magical things like “thermal spring water” and “serozinc” solutions. It’s a brand designed for sensitive skin, with all sorts of cool ingredients and a range suited to every skin type and problem. There’s about 15 different ranges altogether, so you’re bound to find something right. I’m going to share with you what I use and why!

So I mainly stay on the same few ranges. These are: Effaclar, Rosaliac, Serozinc and Thermal Spring Water. I’ll show you how I use them by sharing with you my evening skincare routine…….




1) I remove my make up with the Rosaliac Make-Up Remover Gel. It’s quite cold but is veeery good, and you don’t need a lot. It has a micellar cleansing solution and also has little tiny beads in it, and it ALSO contains this magic thermal spring water. I love it. It might be good to follow with some wipes, I know not all make up can just disappear straight away. But this stuff does actually penetrate your skin and cleanse that as WELL as removing your day’s make up.


2) I cleanse my skin with the Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel. It’s for people who struggle with oily skin and blemishes.. *raises hand*. It’s one of those delightful washes that foams up and gets rid of excess sebum, and again you don’t need much of it. This also contains magic thermal spring water! The bottles are quite big so it really does take you a loooong time to get through it all, proving amazing value for money.


3) I tone my skin with either of these – the Effaclar Clarifying Toner, or the Serozinc OR Thermal Spring Water face spray. The toner is your basic toning water in a bottle but I do find it a little harsh sometimes for every day use (that’s only because I’m super sensitive), so I prefer to use the sprays daily. The Serozinc spray is another one for oily and blemished skin, so a little bit of that is good every couple of days. I do however prefer the Thermal Spring Water spray, it’s so light and soft and perfect with the cleanser. Also good to set make up!


4) Then comes gels and moisturizers! These are great, and again there’s about a million different types. The Effaclar Duo cream is a lifesaver. It’s basically a concoction of amazing things that get rid of redness and marks and any brewing blemishes. It says you have visible results in 24 hours and you really do (also Mark Ferris, one of my favourite Youtubers loves this stuff too). It’s basically a correcting and anti-clogging potion that I love. There are also moisturizers in a few of the different ranges that are super amazing, and my favourites are the Effaclar and Thermal Spring Water ones.


That’s it for my luxurious, La Roche-Posay skincare routine. A very good value purchase to make if you’re interested is the Effaclar Anti-blemish System 3-Step Regime – you get a cleanser, toner, and a gel. It’s usually priced between £25-£30, with a lot of offers usually on the go at Boots for example. It’s such a good starter kit to try, and I bought this on a day out once, used in the evening, and the next day it had already started working. I absolutely love, love, LOVE this range.



There we go! I don’t always stick to these products indefinitely. I’m one of those skincare and cosmetics hoarders so I do play around sometimes with other brands. I just wanted to show you what I use from La Roche-Posay as it genuinely has sorted me out! I do also use products from the Eucerin company, and lots of The Body Shop too. I may post more later on my monthly skincare favourites, as there’s quite a handful. It’s making my bank account hurt.

In terms of tablets however… GET. THESE.


Honestly the best ones I’ve ever tried. And I’ve had prescription tablets and all sorts! You can get these from Boots, Superdrug and Holland & Barrett etc usually. Annoyingly, Boots did do their own version of these at half the price but I can’t seem to find them anymore. You take 1-3 tablets daily and you notice the difference straight away, truly amazing and worth the price (usually about £6 or £8). Go get them!

The aim of this post was to share with you how much this brand has honestly saved my life. Truly amazing results. The prices are a little higher than you usual drugstore skincare range but it is definitely worth it
