The La Roche-Posay Effaclar ‘3-Step’ Anti-Blemish System is a complete system for treating, clearing, and preventing blemishes on acne-prone skin.

Its three products together target the blemishes and their unsightly marks; they also treat the underlying problems of excess oil on the surface of the skin caused by overactive sebum-producing glands, and open up pores that can become clogged and lead to spots.

All of the products contain La Roche-Posay Thermal Spa Water, which is rich in antioxidant selenium and has a soothing, anti-irritant effect on the skin. This is combined with a range of other proven cleansing, acne-fighting, and sebum-controlling ingredients.

The three steps are: cleansing the skin of excess sebum and impurities that may lead to blemishes; toning the skin for a matte texture and tightening pores; and correcting the appearance of blemishes while hydrating the skin.

Designed to leave clearer-looking, smoother, and fresher skin, it is formulated for daily use and is gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin. It is an especially effective system to treat oily, acne-prone skin before applying make-up.

The three components of the Effaclar ‘3-Step’ Anti-Blemish System should be used as follows:


For use on the face, wet the hands and work a small amount of the gel into a lather. Then massage it into the skin gently with the hands, avoiding the eye area, before rinsing and patting dry. Repeat in the morning and evening.


First, apply a little of the lotion to a cotton pad and gently smoothe it across the face and neck, again avoiding the eye area. Use it twice a day (morning and evening) after cleansing your face as per the above directions. Do not rinse off.


The cream should be applied after cleansing and toning as above, twice a day. Apply a thin layer to the whole facial area. Again, take care to avoid the eye area. Make-up can be applied afterwards.
