Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

I feel like this definitely has helped with my red bumpy skin. My face seems less red and less irritated too, it just looks smoother. I reckon results would be better if I used this strictly however I do skip days. I do recommend this product for anyone with red irritated skin.

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

    LOVE this product. I use it morning and night right after cleansing, before moisturizing. It doesn't irritate my skin- very gentle, no redness, peeling or itching. Prevents breakouts- both whiteheads and hormonal cystic acne on my jawline. Also seams to clear out the sebum in my pores. Can't go without this!

    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

    This product is great once you've treated your major blemishes and just want to maintain a clear face. It isn't going to quickly dry out serious blemishes, but it helps prevent them. I use this along with the Effaklar Duo. This I put on my cheeks, chin, and forehead all the time, while the other stuff I use when I have a big blemish as spot treatment.

    It makes your skin look really smooth and tight. I love it!

        I have had acne for years now, ive used many brands and I thought that spending more money on my skin care products would help my acne but it did not, If you have combination skin with breakout on the cheeks this product will not help you.

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

          I tried this on the advice of a friend as I recently started experiencing adult acne. Ive been using it for over 2 weeks now and not seen any difference. I was hoping this would work better than a benzoyl peroxide treatment, as I've used that before and although effective, I hate that it bleaches everything. This cream really didn't seem like it even reduced any redness, it just didn't do anything for me.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

            Have been using this for about 4 years. Pretty much on a daily basis just on the most oily areas of my face: nose, chin, and my cheeks close to my nose. I use a thin layer after cleansing at night. If I feel a break out is coming, then I use the DUO just on that spot. This line of products has been a life saver.

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

                I have been using this product morning and evening for about a week now and I am showing significant improvements. I have had one new blemish appear (just yesterday), but before a week ago my chin was devastated by cystic pimples and now it is calmed significantly. Doesn't leave me shiny, does leave a tiny bit of residue if you use too much. All in all, it's worth the $.

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

                I use this product after I wash and tone my skin with effaclar products, it seems to work immediately shrinking pimples. You will need a moisurizer though if your skin is dry-combination and I have finally found the one, Hydreane Riche by La Roche Posay.

                I have tried every brand name out there, from Este Lauder, to Clinique to Lancome but La Roche Posay has a winner on their hands. I have highly problematic skin and every moisturizer seems to make me break out...this one works great, is an excellent base for foundation. My skin has improved over two weeks!

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment:

                This is my second acne product from La Roche-Posay. The first was the Effaclar Duo. Both this and the Duo did not perform to expectations. The Duo dried my face out like crazy, even with only one application a day or every other day, and didn't help with my pimples so I returned it. About a year later I decided to give the Effeclar K a try. This product did not dry my face out like the Duo, however it had no effect on my occasional pimples and definatly did not help prevent any new ones from forming. I will say I don't have "acne", I only suffer from the occasional pimple mainly on my cheeks. I'd apply this on my cheeks if I had a pimple and not only would it not help the existing pimple go away faster, new pimples would form around it where I had applied the product. This is supposed to have some sort of "anti-relapse" formula, but it does no such thing. Maybe if my breakouts were worse I'd see a positive change in my skin, like other reviewers. I really wanted to love this product (and the Duo) but I didn't. Don't waste your time or money. I returned both products.
