    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

    I use this product after a long day and I thought it would work after reading all the great reviews, however its not great. I have combination skin with big pores. I am 24. This dries out my skin and does not help with the pores. My skin did not react badly but, I felt like it did not do anything to help. Its a big bottle so it last a while. It is a bit pricy and now have to find something else.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

          Well, this cleanser isn't that great that I thought it would be. I have acne and my skin is really sensitive so when I bought this cleanser I thought it will help me fighting acne but all this product did to my face was excessive dryness and more breakouts.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

              Have been using this cleanser for 1 month now, in the morning & evening. I've noticed a difference, in how my face (especially t-zone) is a lot less oily & greasy throughout the day, especially when the weather becomes hot & humid.
              NO scent. This cleanser does NOT dry or overstrip. My skin becomes well cleansed & freshened. NO irritation and redness. And all amount needed is a dime-sized.

                    This is a great cleanser I'm on my second tube now. It's gentle enough for my sensitive/dry skin but it takes off all my makeup and I wear a lot of it. I used to get breakouts around my chin area but no more. This is very affordable and will last you at least 3 months or so. It is a clear gel that foams up and has a very mild scent but doesn't linger after rinsing
