How to Use
Rated 4.39 out of 5 stars
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.
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've struggled with hormonal acne for years, which has gotten worse recently because I wear an N95 mask all day at work. I've tried many products to try to clear my breakouts, but none have worked as well as this one! Within a couple of days of adding this to my nighttime skincare routine I noticed a difference. My breakouts are clearing and redness/inflammation is diminished. It is drying, but ample amounts of moisturizer balances it out. Highly recommend giving it a try!

I love this stuff! One of my favorite ways to add hydration in between each skincare step

This spot treatment is fairly good. It doesn't dry out the skin like most spot treatments do, but I didn't find it super effective.

Loved this! I've added this to my daily skin care routine and it works wonders. I use it as spot treatment in problem areas.

Love this for soot treatment however it does dry out your skin so try to keep it. Only on the spot where you have the pimple totally recommend to have handy especially for those hormonal pimples that pop out of nowhere

It's a great product best if used before bed it really helps clear up those harsh acne spots on your face I would recommend

This product seemed to help. The size was small so it didn't allow me to try over a great period but I could definitely see some results.

This along with the effaclar face wash and toner cleared up my face within 3 days. No kidding! I'm not a teenager- I'm going through menopause and having a horrible hormonal problem w/my skin. My derm recommended this and I'm so glad I did try it. It does not dry out your skin.

This cream was recommended to me by a dermatologist for my sensitive skin. It also mattes slightly. Fits well for me as a makeup base. But I only apply it on those hones that are most greasy.

I have been using this product for a while now and I do not see detailed improvement. I feel like it does help dry out some pimples but it hasn't completely cleared my face up. I suffer from hormonal acne and I don't use this religiously but whenever I remember it's there.

I love this product, I have very sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate me. I'm in love, perfect for painful pimples.
Priscilla2117 from El Paso Texas
This product worked wonders on my face after the 2 day of using. Only this is, it dried out the problem areas so much, that I started peeling. But I'm okay with that, as long as it clears up my skin!! And that's what it's been doing, clearing up my skin.

I bought this a week ago and I only applied it on the problem area. The next day, the area where I applied the product became irritated. It was red and itchy, also was swelling a bit. I stopped using for a week, and my skin recovered from that and I tried it again (only on the problem area), and no reaction the second time using it. So I guess my skin just have to get use to this product since it was probably too strong for me. I have to say, after the first time using it, besides the irritation, it bleached my skin. The hyperpigmentation however looked the same, but the skin around it became lighter, and it's very obvious when you look at it, the color is lighter than everywhere else on my face, and this happened just after one use. Very sad, I hope I can recover from this, because now my face have super light spots around my hyperpigmentation, but the hyperpigmentation itself did not become lighter.

This stuff works great took my dark spots right away within a week and a half it didn't dry out my face at all it didn't leave my face oily or dried out I really liked this stuff and definitely recommend it
laurenl237 from undisclosed
I liked this product fine. Wasn't my favorite (FAB is the best) I've used, I've also used worse. It might be better for someone with different skin than me. I probably won't buy it again but if anyone had a really good experience let me know!

Gentle, effective, non-drying. I'm surprised since it contains benzoyl peroxide. Recommended!

THIS PRODUCT WORKS REALLY
This product works really well as a spot treatment. It's a good price and good to have on hand for stubborn spots. It got four stars from me because it isn't cruelty free

Worked wonderfully, I would suggest any of these products ❤️ All the items of this brand are top knotch
La Roche-Posay Benzoyl Peroxide Product from Pittsburgh, PA
I could not get my chin acne to calm down. It's a mixture of hormonal acne alongside maskne. I tried every SA product under the sun and just nothing ever worked for me. I found out that Benzoyl Peroxide could be a alternative and I was so happy to see La Roche-Posay had a product that contained BP. This worked like a dream! A thin layer after I double cleanse only at night, give it about 15 minutes to soak in and then I make sure I moisturize on top. This is drying, it's basically supposed to be, but if you use your normal moisturizer on top it should be fine. Every other day when I have flare ups, this will be forever a part of my routine.
Bubbles from California
I used this on my very hard to get rid of chin acne paired with a retinoid (effaclear morning, retinoid night) and it cleared up a vast majority of my acne! Works excellent, even if it's quite drying, with a nice moisturizer it doesn't matter!
emilybcfae from undisclosed
I wished this product worked for me, but it didn't. I have severe acne due to medication and this just didn't work. It might work for people with hormonal acne though.
holdon from undisclosed
Gentle spot treatment, clearasil is too harsh for my skin this is not too harsh and pretty effective
morganj4 from undisclosed
It's supposed to get rid of pimples and black heads. I would say it reduces pimple size, but doesn't get rid of blackheads.
lyssna from undisclosed
i decided to give this to my friend who was having so breakouts on her chin area. it did an okay job of reducing the size of the breakouts but it was very drying
