I went on a massive Boots haul a couple of weeks ago, and bought a whole lot of things which I really didn't need, but I really wanted to try. One of them was the Effaclar Mat creme which I have heard a lot of things about and I've always seen La Roche-Posay as an amazing brand so I decided to give it a go.

Effaclar Mat is a moisturizer for oily and sensitive skin which tightens pores and helps reduce shine. I have combination skin, but recently it's been swinging more towards oily once I put my makeup on. Then halfway through the day my foundation looks greasy and makeup does not stick. So, I thought this would be a good product to try out as not only does it act as a day and night moisturiser, it can also work as a base for your foundation.

The texture of this moisturiser is very silky, spreads across your face easily and dries quickly so it's a perfect primer. My skin felt matte and smooth, almost like a velvet screen, but it didn't feel uncomfortable. I use it day and night, and in the mornings I find my foundation glides on easier. I loved how my skin looked once my makeup was done! It helped me reduce shine throughout the day as well, so the creme worked for the purpose I got it.

Overall I'm really impressed with this product, it's done exactly what I wanted it to and that is to minimise the appearance of pores, make my skin more matte and help makeup stay on longer. Thumbs up La Roche-Posay!
