    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar System:

    I've had oily skin and lots of acne since I was 17, and I'm in my early 30's now, so I've tried A LOT of products. I used this religiously morning and night till the product ran out hoping and praying for relief. My skin was still oily and my acne was the same: red and painful. This product didn't make it worse. But it didn't make it better. Extra strength Proactiv works way better.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar System:

      I like this lil package. I wanted just the spot cream but they were out so I got the trio, and I'm so glad! The toner is probably my favorite, as it targets clogged pores (biggest concern) and does NOT leave my skin feeling dry or tight. The wash is nice as well. I've only been using for about a week but so far I love this stuff.

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar System:

        I struggle with breakouts, particularly during my cycle. This trio, when used daily, does in fact combat breakouts as well as minimize breakouts in the first place. I use a scrub first to clear the way for the active ingredients to get to work.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar System:

          I was all hyped up because of the spot treatment that the kit included. I had two giant zits that I wanted to diminish and since I heard so many good things about the spot cream I decided to give it a try. I have sensitive skin so I could not use the kit day and night so I only used it once at night time. The cleanser works great for oily skin and I loved it!! The other two products in the kit did nothing but irritate my skin :( going back today to return it and just buy the cleanser by itself, since I gues I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar System:

          I use the cleanser in the shower every night, but don't wash in the mornings because it dries my nose out too much, even with moisturizing. I use the toner and the lotion right before bed, making sure my mascara comes off. It soothes and makes my skin feel great enough to relax and fall asleep super easily.
