Beauty Buys: La Roche-Posay & Real Techniques


La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Duo - Corrective and Unclogging Anti-Imperfection Care - 40 ml - £13.00
La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Riche - Soothing Protective Cream - 40 ml - £14.50
Real Techniques - Core Collection Make-up Brushes - £21.99

On Tuesday I finally decided to try the La Roche-Posay skincare range and I headed on a mission to Boots during my lunch break to get few items. I wanted to try the La Roche-Posay products mainly because at present I am dealing with a major breakout on my face which is partially due to stress and lack of sleep. My skin majority of the time is quite clear with the odd spot here and there but I have never had a breakout this bad or for such a prolonged period of time and it's really starting to bug me. 

I bought the Effaclar Duo and the Toleriane Riche but I wanted to also buy the Effaclar A.I which is a breakout corrector but I ended up putting it down when I saw the total of my 'quick' lunchtime buys at the till. I should have just bought it as I am now just going to go back and buy it today during my lunch break. I have only used both products twice so I can't really comment on their performance yet but I will put a review up of my thoughts once I have fully used them.

I also bought the Real Techniques Core Collection set of brushes which I have had on my mental wishlist for a little bit. As I have been trying to be good with my spending habits instead of buying  it straight away (as I usually do with things) I held out till the end of the month. I have only used the brushes twice since buying them but I must say I am really impressed with them already.
