    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

    I battled with teenage acne while growing up- and now that I'm in my twenties, I have a few spots that pop up here and there depending on stress and hormones. This is effective in reducing redness, as well as taking care of the spot itself. It speeds up the healing time of existing spots, and prevents future breakouts. I use this day/night as needed after cleansing (I have oily/combination skin). My skin has never looked better, and I haven't faced any issues whatsoever with my two years of using this product.

      Great acne treatment

      By Jordan

      from California

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

      This stuff is great. It is a bit drying, so just make sure you have a good moisturizer and don't use it too often. Some people can use it every day, others every other day. It also caused me to purge a little bit. So if you see some new spots after using it, it doesn't mean it's breaking you out. you could just be purging. My purging period lasted about 3 weeks. since then, i haven't had one pimple. I wash my face, wait a few minutes for it to completely dry, apply the duo, then wait a few more minutes for it to sink in. after about 5 minutes I put on my moisturizer.

      Be careful, benzoyl peroxide has bleaching properties. so make sure you wash your hands before touching any of your clothes, and don't use your nice pillow cases if you sleep with it on.

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

        Worst choice I've made. This acne made me break out so bad within two weeks of use. I went from having one to two spots to ten big spots all over. :( My skin is at its worst right now and I blame this product. Stay away if you have sensitive skin.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

          We tried several products for our teenage son. Even the very popular one that is seen "active"ly all over t.v. Nothing was helping. I found this product at Ulta and bought it with a corresponding cleansing gel. He uses the gel with a Clairisonic Mia and then immediately applies this product. He does this twice a day and his skin looks wonderful! The other night he met up with a friend who has pretty bad acne. All I could think was thank goodness that we found something that worked so well and easily! I am so glad that when people first meet him, he can put his best face forward with confidence!

            I bought this product and used it for 2 weeks.
            Guess what happen!!
            I had severe acne all over my face!!!
            I only had minor minor acne before...

            Before i purchase this product
            I've read so many reviews.. unfortunately
            This is not what I expected
            It's worse than ever!!

            I rather use clean & clear acne treatment..

            Do not waste your money on this.....

              Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo:

              I could not come to terms with my adult acne, and never believed the lies people say. "Nothing will work perfectly" when I see lots of people around me have great skin. I just could not settle and kept experimenting and so glad I didn't give up. After 12 years of struggling, I'm acne free. I feel like telling everyone around me that has acne give this a chance but you cant just tell them, cause that is not polite. So this review is my sharing, this product really works. You see results right away, no pain, no pealing skin from dryness or heavy creams, if you use it 2x a day(morning/nigh) and not touch your face because your are so used to hiding it, you will not get new pimples! Not sure how this works but it does. Thank You:)
