      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

      I have super oily face and large pores..This product has minimized my pores a lot. Use it morning and night before applying sunscreen or night moisturizer. I will be buying the whole effaclar treatment and see how it works. It is pricey but you only need a little bit!

        Best serum for acne prone skin. Use this everyday once a day in combination with Cerave Pm. Use with a really good moisturizer and you'll avoid the peeling.

        I also use the effaclar system. Be careful with the effaclar duo… although effective… it made my skin peel and it took days to recover.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

          I am an avid lover of the Effaclar 3-step acne system you can buy, it has done absolute wonders for me. So I was so disappointed when my skin did NOT like this product at all. Within days of starting use my skin was irritated and broke out with numerous bumps and pimples--which beforehand had been cleared by their system! I truly believe in La Roche-Posay products and it was such a bummer that this did not mesh as well with my skin as their other products I use. But within roughly 3 days of me stopping use of this product and only using the 3-step acne system my skin was beginning to go back to normal and the irritation and breakouts were disappearing. So although this may not have worked for me, it may work for others!

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

            I've been trying this product on and off for several weeks to try and treat minor persistent acne and black heads. I figured treating fine lines would be an added plus.

            I started by using every other night with occasionally using nightly and I think it dries me out some (I have combination skin w/ both oily and dry spots). Sometimes I think I "see" changes (my main concern again is blackheads and mild acne), but I wonder if I'm just hopeful for them. After using frequently enough to "see changes" I have to take a break from it to let my skin rehydrate (I'm still in search of a suitable night time moisturizer). Also, either this product or the moisturizers I try to combat the dryness seem to trigger mild acne bumps.

            So I'm still on the fence about this product. Maybe I'll try to use it again every other night once I find a moisturizer to combat the dryness this causes. If I do I'll post an update.

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

              This is by far the best product I have ever used and I have used them all. I started having mild acne and clogged pores with my second pregnancy. I hoped the problems would go away after but 4 years later I still have problems. This product is amazing. Within a week my pores were completely clear. My skin is so smooth. I am 29 and barely need to wear makeup now. I really don't have any wrinkles yet (thank god!) but I definitely feel a tightening of my skin but without the usual dryness that accompanies most acne products. Well worth the price!

                I got better results than retin A or epiduo to unplug plugged pores on my chin. I use this serum along with glycolic wash on the chin only and it burns when i put on the serum but the bumps are reduced. Love this product it also made my face smoother and pores are less visible. make up looks better!!!

                I've only been pregnant a few months, but my skin has been acting up since the beginning. While I'm waiting for the "pregnancy glow" to happen, this serum was recommended to me by someone who works at Ulta. I was suffering from breakouts both on my forehead and my chin and within three days of using this serum twice a day, the breakouts started to vanish. The skin is now once again smooth. While I still need concealer to cover up the scars that haven't healed, I am feeling more confident and better about my ever changing skin.

                  It's expensive but worth it. My skin made a great improvement when I started using a few different products, so I wasn't sure it was this. But I tried going without this for a few weeks and definitely noticed the texture of my skin was much worse. I will be keeping this in my skincare routine.

                    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

                    I started using this serum with La Roche-Posay duo acne treatment to treat my adult acne, some cystic, and fine lines. Within a few days, my skin was completely clear and feels noticeably smoother. I use the serum after washing my face, let it dry for a few moments, then apply the duo and a bb cream for oily/combo skin as my foundation. My skin looks better than it has in years. I had used another brand with salicylic acid as the active ingredient, but the La Roche-Posay line is much more effective for me.
