La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel- Best face wash for oily, acne-prone skin
I’ll be talking about one of my new favourite skincare finds today. Its the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel face wash. You guys might know that I’m not very experimental when it comes to skincare. I try and stick to my usual tried and tested products. That’s because I have a pretty sensitive skin and I’m always apprehensive about something causing a reaction to it.
Anyway, I was looking for a good travel friendly face wash for my oily, sensitive skin a few months ago and digressing from my usual self, decided to give the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel a try. I have to say, my more than amazing experience with the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo from the same range definitely played a part in my decision. As I had expected, the foaming gel also did not disappoint. Although nothing miraculous like the Effaclar Duo, this face wash is definitely worth a try! Read on to know my detailed review.

The face wash comes in a white, plastic tube with a blue flip-open cap. The overall packaging is leakproof and light-weight; making it ideal for travel.
The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel also comes in a 200mL tube but since I wanted to try out a smaller packaging which would be suitable to carry around, I went in with this smaller 50mL packaging. The face wash is a clear gel-based foaming wash with a mild fragrance. It cleanses the skin well and leaves absolutely no residue behind so it is great for oilier skin types.
Additionally, it isn’t very drying either which is quite a welcoming quality in face washes targeted towards oily skin-types. I haven’t noticed much effect on the existing blemishes but a clean, non-drying formula ensures prevention of future blemishes. The formula is very mild so it may wash away daily impurities and sebum on the skin but may not be enough to wash off waterproof makeup. So you definitely need a separate makeup cleanser if you wear waterproof makeup. On the plus side, the mild soap-free formula will not irritate sensitive skin types or worsen any existing acne condition.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel for Oily Skin
The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel is certainly one of the best face washes for oily skin in India. It is a simple, mild face wash for oily skin types that are looking for a product to thoroughly cleanse the skin. The fact that it does not cause any excessive dryness and is pH balanced makes it suitable for sensitive skin types as well. Recommended!
