      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!!!

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

          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.

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum:

                I have had severe adult acne ever since going off the birth control pill the past almost 2 years. I also have extremely oily skin. I have tried everything! From prescription products from the dermatologist to everything over the counter including Proactiv. Nothing had worked. I had found La Roche Posay online in the past but no stores around me sold it until I went to my Ulta store about 3 months ago and they had begun carrying it! My face is completely acne free since using this line and all I have left are some dark purple acne scars that are fading due to this serum! I cannot live without it. I use it twice per day, in the morning after I cleanse in the shower with the Effaclar Purifying cleanser and get out of the shower this serum is the first thing I put on my face. I then follow with the Effaclar Duo and then the Effaclar M moisturizer. I cannot say enough raves about this product line except for that I wish I had tried it sooner.

                  Noticeable results within 2 weeks. My skin was smoother, brighter, and acne scars became lighter. I've been wanting to try a glycoclic peel at home, but I'm too afraid to do something drastic to my skin so I opted for this serum since it has glycolic in it. I'm very pleased with this product.
