Bye acne!

By Mai

from Texas

Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

My dermatologist recommended this product and I decided to give it a try. That was 3 years ago! Since I started using this product my acne product is almost gone. I get the occasional hormonal acne every now and then, but no more stress related acne! 100% recommended!

I found that this product left my usually oily skin feeling dry and visibly flakey therefore i wouldn't buy it again. However, i have found other products from La Roche-Posay better suited and effective.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

      First— although I do look at prices I would much rather the product work than be cheap. For years I have struggled with my skin. I tried a ton of face washes, masks, and many diy options. I first bought this in March when someone recommended it. While I do still have the occasional breakout and I do get oily still- my skin has completely changed. The texture is better, the clogged pores are reduced, and so are the breakouts. It's deffintiely worth a try.

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

        I have oily skin, and use this product every other night. My skin is instantly refreshed, clean, and oil-free after using this product. I LOVE it! I've never had a product that works this well before! It does dry out/irritate the skin around my nostrils, but I learned that quickly and now apply lotion after using and the problem is solved. I do alternate (every other night) with a calming, milder wash, and exfoliate once a week just to make sure it isn't too harsh or strip my skin of the good oils. My acne has also cleared up. LOVE THIS PRODUCT 10/10

          I bought this to use at night, after wearing makeup for 12+ hours. Its very effective on my oily skin type, but it is still a gentle cleanser. This is a new favorite for me.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

            I got a sample of this with an LRP moisturizer/sunscreen and ended up loving it more than the moisturizer. I'm replacing my current face wash with a big tube of this because it's a real find. It gets all the oil off my face and leaves it clean and baby-soft and tingling pleasantly, and my acne was noticeably decreased by the third use. It's lightweight, foams nicely, and smells amazing, like fresh-cut flowers. For the price it's pretty incredible stuff.
