    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

    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:)

      This product does help get rid of breakouts, however it clears one up in one place but another one pops up next to it. I just don't get it. I stopped using it.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

      I'm 53 and have had acne since late twenties. I've used it all. I've been to at least 10 dermatologists, been prescribed everything there is to throw at the acne problem over the years. 3 courses of Accutane! I saw this one day and figured, why not. Within days I saw blackheads gone on my nose and cheeks, within a month totally clear face. Use a tiny amount. Works well under makeup or tinted moisterizer. Went 9 months with pretty much constant clear skin. Few weeks ago was strapped for cash and bought something else. Now have break out. There is the proof I needed. I was thinking perhaps I had finally outgrown the acne, but it seems obvious it's this. I will never buy anything else for my acne. I don't even need to use special soap. Just a mild soap for sensitive skin. No other acne products. Yes it will stain things like your pillowcase but worth it to me.

            This was a great product that my girl who waxes my eyebrows at Ulta suggested using. She said she uses it her self and worked great, so I took her word for it.
            So far the product has been working, and trust me, I've tried a lot of products.
            I just it at spot treatment an all over treatment. I was using it twice a day by noticed that my sensitive skin couldn't handle that so Im only using it one a day. And so far I love the results.

                  I though this product would be an awesome spot treatment. But it did not do anything to help soothe or diminish my breakouts. Do not buy.

                  Holy Grail Product for acne prone skin

                    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

                    I used the Neutrogena on the spot acne treatment for years, and it worked just okay. Then I found this product! I was put off at first because of the price, but when you think about it, you get 40ml, which is A LOT of product and it's 5.5% benzoyl peroxide versus the Neutrogena product which is only 0.75ml and 2.5%. It works much more effectively and it's worth every penny in my opinion. I put this on any areas where I can feel a pimple coming and when I wake up I can tell I've avoided a potential break out. Absolutely LOVE this!

                      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment:

                      Typically I use daily after I wash my face at night. I only apply in areas where I get break outs, which is chin area...sometimes the cheeks and nose too. This has significantly cleared my skin when no other product has been able to. It doesn't dry out my skin (unless I use it more than twice a day).
