Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

This product is the last acne treatment you will ever buy. It clears any breakout within 24 hours. It also clears your complexion, eradicating future breakouts. The drying is minimal. The tube desigh helps prevent overuse of the product. Great for adult and hormonal acne. It is worth the price. It's so effective I would pay double.

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Works Effectively

Cons

  • Dries Out Skin
  • Irritates Skin

Best Uses

  • Adult Acne
  • Blackheads & Whiteheads
  • Moderate Acne

Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

I am 34 and have had hormonal cystic acne and breakouts for the last 2 or 3 years on the bottom part of my face, especially my chin area. This has completely cleared all of it. The first two weeks, it drew all of the infection and impurities out of my skin. I was breaking out but it was because it was drawing all the blackheads and blockages to the surface. IT WILL MAKE IT WORSE BEFORE IT GETS BETTER!!!! Once I got past that stage, I started seeing clear skin where I did not have it before. I did have some dryness issues also at the beginning, but exfoliating gently and then using a good face cream worked well to help that. I will continue to buy and will start my daughter on it shortly. She just hit her pre-teen breakout stage.

Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

I use the product every night after I was my face, I apply it on acne areas. Sometimes when i have a bad breakouts i'll out it on during the day. Ive tried many things and this has far been the best product I've ever used. while it attacks the acne, it reduces the redness and gets ride of the dark spots. It works amazing, I recommend it to everyone.

Worth every penny

By Hot Donna

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Minimizes Pores
  • Works Effectively

Cons

  • Bleaches Fabric

Best Uses

  • Hormonal acne

Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

This stuff is amazing! I suffered from really bad, I would describe as Hormonal acne with a combination of stress from school and work for about 4 years, the only places I would break out is on my chin and my cheeks, but they were broken out horribly and super painful. I tried everything you can name over the counter from drugstores, absolutely nothing worked, even the stuff that claims to be 10% benzoil peroxide. This stuff is only 5%, and it works. I finally decided to spend more than 10 dollars on a product and my results were fantastic. After the first day of using this stuff I could tell a difference, now I have been using it for 2 months and my face has never been clearer. After the first week of using it my skin did flake but once your skin becomes accustomed to this product it will no longer flake, mine doesn't anymore and I have very sensitive skin (I'm a redhead) Spend the money and get this stuff!!!!! the only downfall and negative thing I have to say about this is that it does stain fabrics if it isn't dry all the way... I have a few night shirts and my pillow cases are stained now but I'll take that over acne ANYDAY. just be careful what you come in contact with until it dries

Amazing

By Steph

from Indiana

Pros

  • Effective
  • Hydrates Skin

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Adult Acne
    • Moderate Acne

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

    I'm 25 and have suffered from acne for the past 10 years. I've tried about everything under the sun, including creams prescribed by the dermatologist, creams bought at the drug store, and high end products but nothing has worked as well as Effaclar Duo. I use it as a moisturizer all over my face in the mornings and it does a fantastic job of clearing up acne. It doesn't feel harsh, have any goofy scents, or irritate my skin at all. It just works. I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from acne. I have oily skin and also use the toner from this line. Another great product.

    If you like irritation

    By Mariah

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Minimizes Pores

    Cons

    • Irritates Skin

    Best Uses

    • Blackheads & Whiteheads
    • Inflammatory Acne

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

    I was surprise to find my skin the next day after using this become very red and irritated! As I continued the usage, my skin became a little less irritated, but as soon as I didn't use it for a while and applauded once again, my skin became irritated, again. I can say it was very effective on my blackheads and whiteheads located on my nose, but it was almost as if my skin was dependent of this product and if I didn't use it one day, I would have to start back from the beginning, with the irritation. I would say it's not for sensitive skin.

    • Dries Out Skin
    • Irritates Skin

    • Cystic Acne
    • Moderate Acne

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

    This product is so great! I have very sensitive skin and while this isn't recommended for sensitive skin, I use it just as spot cream and I only apply 1-2 times a day, not 3.

    If I use it too much, the skin does get dried out, but just that one area with the treatment, and that isn't anything moisturizer can't help with. It is very effective and fast. I only wish it wasn't excluded from coupons. I love the other products in this line too!

    I've used more creams than I can count, dermotologist prescribed as well, and this is hands down the most effective one yet. It doesn't dry my skin out and it actually has made it much smoother! I use it along with the EFFACLAR Purifying foaming gel and they are my new go tos!Worth the money!
