    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

    So let's just start of fun by saying I am pregnant and have been dealing with pregnancy acne since I found out I was pregnant. I had very clear skin before and then my hormones went crazy! I tried to find everything and anything under the sun to help my acne! I came across this one day and thought I'd give a try and it has dramatically changed my skin! I can see a huge difference in my skin and my acne is FINALLY clearing up! I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I have found my solution to control my acne with all my crazy hormones!

      This cleanser has been a life saver! I've been using it for a few months now, and I completely recommend it. I have very acne prone and sensitive skin and it really helps me keep it under control. Doesn't dry my face out either. Love it and will not buy anything else!

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

          I have extremely oily and acne prone skin and I thought this would help me with becoming less oily throughout the day but it's been almost 2 weeks and my skin is just about the same when it comes to oil production. The cleanser didn't make a difference in my routine. Also, the cleanser is really runny..as soon as you open it, it starts coming out so beware . And also make sure you close it slightly ..and then make sure again because the product leaks out . Product can be easily wasted .

              I'm 48 years old and far too old for acne but I'm dealing with embarrassing breakouts. I bought this cleanser based on reviews. It has made a tremendous improvement in my skin in one week. It doesn't dry out my skin. It may be helping to control my oily t-zone.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

              I love this product and the two other products it goes along with. The only thing that you should watch out for is over using it because it will dry out your skin very quickly. It is great because it leaves your skin feeling soft and clean.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

              I was having bad cystic acne on my back and my chest and regular acne on my face. for the last 7 months I have gone through many cleansers and treatments for my face. I found treatments that I liked but I still felt like the cleansing wasn't right. I found this online and read the reviews so decided to give another product a try. It has helped SO much to clear up my skin and keep it clear. I am a 40 year old woman with apparently teenage skin. I'm so glad I did not give up and found this product. It does not overdry my skin but even if it did I would just make sure I really moisturize it because it has helped a lot.
