Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE!!!
My dermatologist recommended this product and said it was better than anything he could prescribe me. I had found myself overcome with severe adult acne after moving across the state. This cleared my skin up with only a few white head and no new break outs within a week. I would recommend this prouduct to anyone with stubborn breakouts.
Most Helpful Critical Review not the same as the [+] version
I tried this product and realized it doesn't compare to the one manufactured in France (and not sold in the US), Effaclar Duo +. The latter version also works as a moisturizer and is better absorbed into the skin. This one has an unpleasant bleachy smell and ultimately irritated my skin and didn't do much other than that. I just ordered Effaclar Duo + on Jet and I'm praying I won't receive this one. I'll post an updated review once I receive it if you're interested in trying it.

I'm 25 and all of a sudden I couldn't keep my acne around my jawline at bay. It kept getting worse and worse. This product plus the Effaclar cleanser seriously gave me back my face. Like most products for me it got worse before it got better. But after a week you really start to see it. I use the cleanser every night and the Dual acne treatment every morning and evening. Followed by a moisturizer both times. Do not use without moisturizer. Your face will dry out.

Best thing I've ever used! It cleared up my skin SO fast leaving me with clear skin so when I looked in the mirror, I actually felt good about myself! (This coming from a teenager who struggles with self-image)

Works pretty good but really dries out the skin and takes longer to treat acne.
Claudia from Phoenix, AZ
For like the first 2-4 weeks, your skin might peel horribly but it's worth it. I've been struggling with severe acne but now my acne is mild - my skin is clear except when I'm on my period. I'm focusing on getting rid of acne scars for next step. I apply once a day before I go to sleep. I recommend Cerave daily moisturizing lotion. It's good for peeling and irritated skin. Best decision I've ever made in my acne journey.
finally my acne is gone.

Thank you La Roche Posay. ,i have tried everything ,but this worked just perfect for me,i used the three combination,form cleanser,spot corrector and moisturizer ,this is where i belong.
issammie from Eden Prairie
I don't know what they put in this or maybe because it has 5.5% benzoyl peroxide but this thing is voodoo magic! I put a little on the spots where I'm breaking out, the next morning and poof it's gone! I love this! I love how small it is and I love how a TINY bit goes such a long way. The ONLY acne medication that I have seen in all my 29 years that works overnight and makes my skin look like I never even broke out! I will forever buy this. There's no over powering scent or any stinging, it's basically another moisturizer you're putting on your face. There's no itchiness or irritation nor does it stain your dark pillow cases. Love this!
It works for acne!

joyce from GA
i suffer from sporadic cystic acne, and i've been using other products but they were very slow acting so i decided to try this, amazing within two weeks my cystic acne has gone down tremendously! i would by again. though it's important to note my skin was already accustomed to high percentages of BHA
Lilith from Las Vegas
I purchased this for someone after telling me they've used this before and it really works for them. I couldn't find any products but knowing bout this makes it easy to find and will certainly purchase again.
Not the French Formulation
najaca from New York, NY
This version tingles and has Benzoyl Peroxide. I refuse to use this. The French version is delicate and more effective. I'm highly disapointed and question the quality of the american productions
I will be buying this product again!
Kat from Reseda, CA
Have been using it for about 2weeks 2x a day and have noticed a more even complexion and reduced blackheads and whiteheads ... Will continue to use!

Really great spot treatment. I have really stubborn cystic acne. I apply it when I first see the acne coming through my skin. This spot treatment stops the pimple from growing and forming a cyst. Really love this.
Julia from Washington DC
Havent broken out since using this every few days!
mfgsb from new york
I usually don't review any products BUT this one deserves it! it can control my oily T zone and disappeared with my blackheads on my nose and chin (and I have tried A LOT of products before looking for these results, only if i knew this before OMG) :)) I am so happy and I will definitely buy this FOREVER!!!! Thank you La roche
Great Spot Treatment
TMP13 from CA
This spot treatment reduces the size of my pimples overnight. Dry and redness tend to occur when I apply it over again, but moisturizer comes to rescue. While I find this product work, I don't understand why the brand won't make the Plus [+] version here. I used to use to La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Plus [+] when I was in Asia. It can be easily found in Asia and Europe. It's a moisturizer that treats acne, brightens discoloration, unclogs pores and so many other benefits. You can use it all over your face, instead of spot treating like this version they sell here. I really wish they brought it over here!! La Roche Posay, please here me out!
Chemical burn/redness/dryness DO NOT BUY
Tori from NC
This product says it is non-drying in the description, but you would have to be extremely oily for that to be true. I can only see this product MAYBE working on people who have severe cystic acne and very oily skin. I applied a very thin layer of this to my breakout areas. Slept in it. Woke up with red splotches all over my face in the area it was applied. I did not feel a burning sensation when it was on my face. It's 2 days later and I have not re-applied and my face has gotten WORSE! My skin has chemical burns, my face is swollen, is flakey and dry even after lotion, and it itches so badly. Please do not buy this! Not worth the risk.
BonnieP from Phoenix, AZ
This has kept my face clean so far! No irritation, and I use it on all over my face, followed by a moisturizer. I've only been using it for barely a week, more updates to come!

My new go-to spot treatment. Well worth the money
Ladyjane707 from Southern Utah
I had recently gone off of hormonal birth control which really regulated me and left me with nearly perfect skin. I started having "hormonal" breakouts around my jawline and neck that persisted for about 3 months. Anyone dealing with acne knows how distressing it can be. So I started looking for a treatment that might help and decided to try this one based on the reviews and some additional research I did. I thought the price was a bit steep, but I am so glad I tried it anyway! I all but stopped having new breakouts after only 1 week and now after 2 more weeks it's basically all healed. There is some peeling and dryness to endure, but I found that I may have been using too much at first. The more precisely you can target the problem areas on the skin the better off you'll be. Now I'm using a tiny bit every couple of days just to maintain. I'm not kidding, this stuff is fantastic! And considering how little you really should use, this tube will last a long time. Well worth every penny!
Not good for my skin!
Zain from Virginia
When I apply it to my face, or on my acne, my god, it makes that area so itchy and red. Not for me.
Don't knock it until you try it

My face is the clearest that it has ever been! Love this stuff!
Getting my skin back!
StephanieS from undisclosed
A little goes a long way. I use on my entire face, and have seen a tremendous difference in the surface and texture in my skin since I began using it. My skin hasn't been this clear in a long time thanks to this regimen that I'm using.
