      Really helped congested pores on nose & face. See potential for drying out skin but seems to be a nice balance so far so good

      My face,especially along the jawline, has been horribly plagued with acne and cystic bumps for the past 6 months with nothing helping. At the ripe age of 28, this is the WORST my face has looked!! I stumbled across this gem and after 4 days i can't stop touching my face and actually forgot how soft and smooth my face used to be!! This is a truly a game changer. Along with the burts bee herbal stick, my face is 70% clear. A little goes a long way !! Thank you La Roche Posay!!!

            I've only had this product for about a week and already has left my face looking fresh! My skin is a combination of all but more sensitive and the product has not left my face oily nor dry. I do also use Mario Badescu, Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion, as a toner in the AM/PM after every cleanse. The results have been great and the bottle is big for the price, so a small amount can go a long way.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

            I've only used this product about a week and has already improved my skin, feeling clean and smooth. I have sensitive combination skin and this has not left my skin dry nor oily, which usually happens. I do also use Mario Badescu, Cucumber Cleansing Lotion, as a toner. The price is just perfect and a using only a small amount goes a long way.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

            I generally have sensitive combination skin, so I really like to use gel cleansers because physically they are more gentle on my skin. This product is awesome, it works really well, is a great price, and you get a lot in one tube. I usually use a nickel sized amount at a time, applying and scrubbing all over. It really leaves your face feeling cooled, clean, and refreshed. I've noticed since I started using this product that not only has my skin been clearer, but it has really toned down the redness. My skin tends to dry out really easily after washing my face no matter what cleanser I use, so I just finish off with some Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. With this combination of products, my skin is happy and healthy!

              Started using this cleanser and toner a few months back because I was breaking out even while on bc, it has made such a difference. I only get a few tiny breakouts around that time of the month. It feels refreshing and does not overdry. The toner is great too.
