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.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

      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.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser:

              I bought the 3 month trial kit and fell in love; I recently ran out and purchased the full size. I have had sensitive, acne prone skin ever since puberty, and no face wash I've ever used has ever really cleared up my skin so much as maintained it. I typically bought drug store washes, like every college student not wanting to break the bank. But ever since using this, I can't see myself using anything else. It's worth every penny, I swear. I typically use this with a konjac sponge, morning and night and follow with the Effaclar toner and Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion. I haven't loved my skin this much since I was probably 12. You won't regret buying this product! I recommend using it as part 1 of the Effaclar system.

                This is honestly one of the most effective cleansers I have ever seen. I bought this cleanser as a gift for a friend, and I have noticed an insane difference in her skin texture, acne, everything. She has been using this product for only a week and her acne has calmed down. This product does it's job and it's definitely worth the money!! I recommend to anyone who has acne prone skin to give this product a chance!
