I am a 27 year old mother of 2 and I seriously thought that I'd never stop looking like a hormonal teen mom! I have been using this 3 step system on and off for 2 years. I'd always stop using because I'd switch to something new that was supposed to work better. Then I went the all natural route with essential oil blends and toners and bam. Back to this. Nothing ever took care of my deep as heck pores on my nose and tzone area, I'd get terrible cysts on my jawline and sometimes forehead that would take weeks to disappear and I have tried almost EVERY single brand out there. Anti agents i have found work best on my skin. Glycolic and aha /bha acids are my fav. LOL. But even when using exuvience, clarins, dermadoctor, and juice beauty - my pitted scars barely faded and I'd still get horrible break outs on my chin. Any storebrand, behind the counter, monthly subscription (neutrogena skinid, proactive, rodan and fields), I swear to you. You name it and I've probably given it a try!
This stuff is the bomb. Give it 14 days. 2 weeks and tell me you don't see a huge difference. You NEED a good moisturizer. The negative complaints are from individuals that need to learn how to balance their skin. I have been using clinique smart daytime lotion for the day and SKYN oxygen infusion cream at night. YES those are 2 pricey lotions but dang are they worth it if you've thrown away more money on useless products. They will easily last you 90 days. I use the spot treatment just as that.. a spot treatment. Sometimes Id put on my tzone when my pores were huge and black head filled. Again, make sure you moisturize!
Attached are photos that are a month apart. The left photo isnt even when my skin was at it's worse. I thought it looked good at the time I took it. I hate myself without makeup so I can't even believe I'm posting this on a PUBLIC WEBSITE. But the results are real. If you've ever cried over the pain you're in due to cystic acne, BUY THIS RIGHT MEOW.
So, this summer has been SUPER hard on my skin. I really liked this product at first. It did what it promised and I noticed my blemishes were greatly reduced in the first 3 days. But, after continuing with the product (as directed) I began to develop strange bumps that were jut under the surface of my skin. They would never come to a head and they just stayed. I decided to return the product because of the bumps. Also, I got super dry. To the point where my chin had a red dry patch that has taken about 2 weeks to clear up. Just didn't work for me.

I did a pick up order a week ago but is not until today that I'm opening the bag because I run out of the previous products and when I removed the products from the box the dual action acne treatment was missing!! The other two product were closed but it make mad that they kept one of the products... so this review is more for the store. The products in general are super good I have been using them for the past month and they are working very well on me.... please always check your orders before leaving the store

This product is underrated
That spot treatment is the best part
And I don't have a good history with salicylic acid so I hesitated
But it did not dry my skin at all

I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have found these products. I'm 25 now and have always suffered with acne. I've been through MULTIPLE acne kits and treatments, have spent hundreds of dollars trying to get rid of my acne and nothing worked up until I tried this.
I'm on day 4 of using these products and my acne have cleared almost all the way up. I am truly amazed. My skin is literally SO smooth and my pores are noticeably smaller. I was hesitant on wasting more money on another acne kit but am SO HAPPY that I went ahead and bought it.

Acne was never a huge concern for me in the past, but I've been struggling with massive breakouts around my mouth, cheeks, and chin throughout the summer because of wearing a mask everywhere. I had been trying a lot of products but this treatment cleared up my acne the most effectively. And my forehead has had these tiny bumps on it for YEARS and the benzoyl peroxide acne medicine in this kit got rid of it in two weeks. And the price point was definitely a plus since this product is not crazy expensive. I'll be purchasing it again if I continue to struggle with acne from wearing a mask.

Great product, just wait 2 months to see the results and add a moisturizer

this product set was not even on my face for 5 minutes before the burning started. the burning continued as my whole face began to itch severely.

I was spending hundreds of dollars on Unblemish R&F products and for what?! This line is soooo much better at a fraction of the cost. I never had any initial breakout period and my skin cleared up almost immediately. I never used a line that kept my skin so clear. Try it!!!!

Works really well for my skin. I love acetysalicylic acid products.
Enna from Cali
I really want to like this but can't. The cleanser is nice but when using all of these three products together it burns so bad. Even when I applied their moisturizer on top. They should include a moisturizer specific to this set to prevent this. Otherwise, I bet you'll burn your face off if you use it everyday.

AMAZING. Before you try other products and waste money, try this. I only used the Effaclear Duo Gel because I really only needed a spot treatment, but it works. I started getting hormonal acne a few months ago out of nowhere, and this is the only thing that has totally cleared it up. Within a few days, too. I've tried lots of products, and this is by far the best. The effacer duo is very drying, so just be sure to use extra moisturizer. Cannot recommend this enough!

I made a mistake of giving a new skincare brand a chance (side note: shea butter and coconut oil aren't for everyone's skin), and my skin looked horrible for the past month or so. More acne than I've had since a bad breakout last year. I did some googling, came across this brand for the millionth time, and decided to finally try it out since Ulta was having a sale. I have been using it for a week, and my skin looks a thousand times better than it did last week! I starting seeing results within 2 days of using this system! The first few nights of use felt like I was using a chemical peel, but once the dead skin started to peel off the burning went away. My skin already looks so much better, and I couldn't be happier!! If you're on the fence, just give it a go!

I used to suffer from pretty bad acne back in high school but since graduating have only had the minimal breakouts here and there. A few months ago, however, my acne came back WORSE than it ever was in school and none of my usual products did anything for it. After researching what Ingredients work best for what forms of acne I decided on this kit since it is a full system with both benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid in its products. The system claims to show results in just 3 days, which sounds skeptical at best honestly, but I was shocked to see a HUGE difference in my acne after using it just over the weekend. Most acne treatments can be quite drying and this is no different, so if you have dry skin like me you'll want a good moisturizer to use afterwards. I recommend Cerave Moisturizing Cream as it's very hydrating and you get a lot of product for the price. Overall I would definitely buy this product again to keep acne under control! 10/10 recommend

This is the holy grail of all acne systems! Listen, I seriously have tried everything under the sun, even prescription medication from my dermatologist for my cystic acne, and none of it has stood up to these products. My skin looked noticeably better after one day, and now that I'm on day 14 it's even better! My skin is glowing, the black heads on my nose have disappeared, and the large red cystic acne on my jaw has shrunk down to nearly nothing. This kit does not contain a moisturizer, so do make sure you moisturize after each application to help with dryness, because these products are very drying (as they should be.)

After a day of using this product my skin was extremely irritated. I woke up with bumps and burns all over my face.

DO NOT BUY

I have severe adult acne and suffer from PCOS which made finding anything to help clear my skin feel impossible. I've been using the Effaclear treatment system for just under a month and my skin has improved so drastically. I still get the occasional breakout, especially during my cycle, but I couldn't be happier with this skincare system.

I bought this product in May and honestly my skin hasn't been the same since (in a good way!). The cleanser immediately shrunk my pores and didn't dry my skin out too much. I combine this acne system with the la roche posay double repair moisturizer (with spf) in the morning, la roche posay retinoid topical treatment and a basic night cream in the evening. It took my skin about 2 months to see the best results. So be patient if you are just starting these products. I haven't had a cystic acne in about two months and my acne scars are fading.
It's safe to say I am never going back to any other skin care brand. I have struggled with acne since I was 13 and this is the best my skin has looked and felt since then!

My dermatologist gave me samples of the Effaclar Duo (third step in the system) and I decided to try it because I have tried so many products over the years. I did not know that this was available without a prescription. I decided to buy the system and I have been using it for about 3 months now! I have suffered with cystic acne for 25 years and this is amazing! I have used other nonprescription systems before but nothing works like this! I use this day and night. You see results rather quickly with this system unlike other systems where you have to wait for months and months to see results (if you see results)! Amazing!

After buying countless of products and none of them producing satisfying results, I opted to this La Roche Posay Starter Kit. I wish I discovered this sooner because it Is amazing and easy to use! I had a bunch of fungal acne and this kit cleared it up within 1.5 weeks. Although there will be some purging for a week, it is all worth it. THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL!!!
Nowadays I have purchased each product separately and will stick with this brand.

Great for Acne. I used to have blackheads on my chin area and nose and I've been using this twice a day once in the morning and I double cleanse at night following with the toner and they're completely gone and my pores shrunk. It also got rid of my stubborn bacterial acne on my forehead. Love this product.
Katie from Fayetteville, NC
It's definitely my fault for not doing more research before buying .. product works great but after looking through ingredients found out it's not really pregnancy safe so unfortunately I have to stop using.
I have combination skin and of course am dealing with hormonal acne. Did help control my oily skin and did prevent breakouts! Only bad thing was that it made my cheeks red and some slight burning on some spots of my nose/cheek area.
Allison15 from KY
I use the product as directed every morning and evening. Within 4 days I noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. I've used this product for about 3 weeks now and my skin has completely changed. I don't have any redness anymore, my acne has completely cleared up, and it's reduced the appearance of acne scars.
anonymous from NJ
I've been using this acne system for 2 months and I can tell you it helps. My acne isn't completely cleared which is the reason for 4 stars but it definitely helps control acne outbreaks. I also use the Effaclar Mat moisturizer which helps with my oily skin. I recommend it!
dest7818 from Alaska
I bought this kit two days ago. I was using Cerave as it was recommended by a friend. I didn't really have bad acne prior to using Cerave, I would get a pimple maybe every 2-3 weeks. Cerave gave my acne on my fore head, cheeks, around my mouth and chin. My cheeks also had a lot of tiny bumps on them. For my skin with was out of the ordinary. After 2 months of my skin breaking out everyday, I decided to make a change. Ive literally been using this product for two days now and I kid you not my tiny bumps and forehead acne are gone. I'm not making any promises yet with this product considering it i've only used it literally 4 times, but I can definitely say Ive seen a huge reduction in the size of my acne. I do find their products a bit expensive for the size and amount that you are getting.
