Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

My 12 year old had a terrible acne breakout all over her face, poor thing. None of our regular remedies were working. I did some research that benzoyl peroxide may be the call. We've been using the LaRoche Posay foaming cleanser for years based on our derma rec, so when I saw the Effaclar Duo, I felt comfortable enough to try it. It has totally been effective at clearing my daughters acne over the past 5 days, BUT there are caveats. First, I highly recommend starting gradually with this product and/or starting it when you have a few days of downtime to lay low. We followed the instructions 1st night and she left it on overnight. Next morning when she washed it off, her face and pimples were very red and inflamed. It looked like she had a rash all over her face that she was unable to cover with her sunscreen/concealer combo. She was NOT pleased at all with me leaving for school that day! Luckily it was a Friday. By the time I picked her up, her face was a little better and we made a plan for her to do activities for the weekend that did not require she put sunscreen or anything on her face. She washed her face that evening and put on a cool PTRoth cucumber mask we had in the fridge that she left on overnight to hydrate. Sat morning face still red but all the pimples had been dried out and some were even gone. Others were still red bumps, but much improved. We have the benefit of being near the beach, and a swim in the ocean always helps! Just face wash and cucumber mask overnight again. Sunday we did one hour of this benzoyl product again after washing and that was plenty! Then cucumber mask over night. Monday she was sooooo much better it was amazing. She wore sunscreen and did her typical routine. Only face wash nothing else last night. Her face is almost clear this morning, I kid you not! Sooo it works, but no pain no gain. Not sure if it's better to blast it one night and recover or step in gradually. Probably depends on your schedule. But it is key to continue.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

      I have suffered with adult acne since 21 years old. After trying almost every acne line from cheap to expensive to homemade, finally in my late 30's, I have discovered this miracle product! I use it 2x per day and it keeps all acne away and clears the awful discloration from past breakouts. I have been using this for almost 2 years, and switched recently trying to find a cheaper alternative, but I had huge breakouts and dark spots all over, so I rushed to ulta and now my skin is lookin great again!! I have combination skin, and had lots of discloration and big pores, in case thats helps!

                  I battled with teenage acne while growing up- and now that I'm in my twenties, I have a few spots that pop up here and there depending on stress and hormones. This is effective in reducing redness, as well as taking care of the spot itself. It speeds up the healing time of existing spots, and prevents future breakouts. I use this day/night as needed after cleansing (I have oily/combination skin). My skin has never looked better, and I haven't faced any issues whatsoever with my two years of using this product.
