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!

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

    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.

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

    This is the best product I have used for acne so far. I saw results the next morning and my skin has looked the clearest it's ever been. However, it has terribly dried out my skin. I have limited use to once a night every other night in hopes of toning down the dryness. I would only recommend for oily skin types.

        This gel cleanser is amazing!!!! I have oily skin and this percentage of salicylic acid prevents breakouts and keeps my oil at bay. I've noticed a big difference in just one week of use. I also use it as an overnight treatment!! I apply a small amount on my blemishes and the next day, no swelling and my blemish is practically gone. Better than popping!

        This is the only thing that has ever worked for me. If you have acne, you know the struggle. I've tried other brands but I'm going back to this one and staying.
