Most Helpful Positive



Love the toner especially, they spray is so easy. The duo moisturiser keeps skin matte and the cleanser is non irritating. No breakouts since using (2 weeks).

Most Helpful Criticism

Liked it


I definitely noticed an improvement but it was no miracle for me unfortunately. I used it over 3 months.
  1. good for oily skin


    The product is great for acne and oily skin, however I also recommend adding in a exfoliator once a week as it doesn't get under the top layer easily and a strong moisturiser at night to bring back the skins natural moisture, without this ,my skin feels great superficially but has bumps on the forehead for over compensating with dryness.
    it's still great and I will purchase again but it is ...

    Love the toner especially, they spray is so easy. The duo moisturiser keeps skin matte and the cleanser is non irritating. No breakouts since using (2 weeks).
  3. Great product for tweens and teens


    verified purchaser
    I purchased this for my 12year old daughter who has been struggling with pimples on her T zone. Within 2 days her skin was clearer with no new breakouts. Amazing product
  4. Works well


    These products work well with each other but found they were a bit too drying for my acne prone skin and made me break out.
  5. Visible results


    I love this combo has really helped my skin, my breakouts have visibly reduced and my skin is very hydrated.
  6. Got me through my acne years


    I was recommended this range by my GP when I inquired about creams for acne at the end of my teen years. It is very reasonable price for the results you get! My skin definitely cleared up and unclogged pores. I would recommend for those who are beginning a skincare routine in their teens/early twenties with acne prone skin. Guaranteed results!
  7. Amazing


    For anyone suffering from persistent breakouts, redness, large & clogged pores - fed up with useless products & skeptical about La Roche-Posay's effectiveness - I say 'run out & buy some TODAY!'
    It says on the packaging 'visible results from day 1' & its true! This 'quiet achiever' packs serious ingredients that you'l love - salicylic acid, niacinamide, zinc, linoleic acid (so good) +more, g...

  8. Love it!


    verified purchaser
    SO glad I tried this 3 step system. I've been using for 6 weeks and have seen great results- skin is much clearer and no new breakouts.
  9. Only thing that works for my Cystic Acne in 11 years


    For 11 years I’ve suffered from super Oily skin leading to severe hormonal Infected Cystic acne to the point it continually bled and was painful to move my face. I’ve tried every skin cleanser and products on the market I could find, but to this day this is the only skin cleanser and moisturiser that’s actually cleared up my acne. Came across it as I worked in Pharmacy, have recommended it to ever...

  10. Perfect acne starter kit!


    I have struggled with acne off and on for years and I find this trio really did help ease the breakouts. The cleanser really removes dirt and left over makeup from the skin and whilst the moisturiser isn't extremely moisturising, it does its job to attack the effected areas!
  11. Took my skincare to the next level


    Went from using your typical acne treatments containing benzoyl peroxide and alcohol to this. Safe to say it was a drastic improvement. While it did not get rid of my acne it definitely helped to contain it as much as it could be.
  12. Excellent


    I bought this for my daughter who had just started seeing signs of bumps on her forehead. Within a couple of weeks they had dramatically improved. Very happy with the products
  13. Value!


    This is a great opportunity to experiment with a easy to follow skin care regime ... especially if you are a beginner with skin care. It’s also great to test the products that La Roche offers for acne. I have very sensitive skin and have adult acne on my jaw area. I noticed the cleansing gel and spray has made a difference and have repurchased it. The effeclar duo wasn’t for me, but it’s worked fo...

  14. La Roche Posay 3 step Anti-Acne System

    M Doats

    I really love this gentle cleansing system. I have sebaceous skin and big breakouts. It's gentle on my sensitive skin, does a great job of actually cleaning and doesn't dry out my skin. I like that there is very little perfume to the products. I use it in conjunction with the same brand ultra light SPF 50+ in the mornings and the Vitamin C 10 serum at night. I also now use the Effaclar K+ anti se...

  15. Great for teens


    I've bought this trio set for two teen daughters. They both love and use all three products.
    It keeps their skin under control and helps combat oiliness.
    The spray is lovely as a refresher in summer, especially if cooled in fridge


    Love this! I have tried more expensive brands and all have failed me. This is the only thing that has cleared my acne. It's a god send!! Took about a month to work properly, but worth the wait 100%!
  17. Great for Teens


    This product has been great for my teenage daughter who had tried a variety of things for her skin. An easy three step system for her sensitive skin.
  18. A great bunch of products


    Fabulous, I see some great results from all of this. I really think it’s worth the money!
  19. Good


    This product works well over a longer period of time. It didn't clear my acne right away but I was desperate and kept on using this because everything else I had already tried and failed. Patience is the key with this if you have oily, acne prone and sensitive skin.
  20. love this


    I suffer from dry skin and this product keeps my skin very hydrated! I would recommend this to anyone!
  21. love


    Great to use in the summer! Been a favourite of mine for a while!
  22. Perfect for sensitive skin


    I have tried so many products and kept having reactions to them. I have been using these products for over a year now and my skin has not looked this good since I started puberty. I’m not 24. Literally changed my skin.
  23. Goodbye acne!


    Oh my god! Acne is gone!! Thank god for this, I truly believe it’s helped my skin so much. Yay!!
  24. Good but nothing too special


    Have been implementing this in my skincare routine. Feels nice on the skin but is probably not as strong or impacting as other skincare brands.
  25. Little miracle.


    After suffering with hormonal and cystic ance and trying endless skincare product from highend to drugstore, this is the only product I found that actually works. Helps clear active acne and prevent further breakouts. Can be a little drying over time but nothing that a hydrating moisturiser can't fix. Highly recommend.
  26. Skin Confident again


    Have given this product a month and I can say that I feel way better about my skin. The three step system is so easy and feels nice. What makes me happy is that I know when a new pimple comes thanks to lovely hormones I can kill it haha.
  27. Amazing


    This kit is great value and let’s you try all 3 products before purchasing the full sizes. These products saved my oily acne prone skin
  28. Great


    I have been suffering from problem skin since my teens and have tried every pill, potion and lotion to combat my breakouts - especially those nasty painful blind pimples around my chin and jawline. I purchased the La Roche-posay system on impulse - I had never heard of it before. I have been using the 3 step system now for about six weeks and my skin has NEVER looked better. Besides being breakout...

  29. Magical


    This product is magical! So light weight and non greasy. The products I use to use always added such a thick, greasy layer onto my skin and left me feeling oily! This product is the complete opposite- it is a dream
  30. I love it


    Amazing product, since I've arrieved in Australia I have had skin issues on my face. But this product makes my skin feel so good and clean. I highly recommend it. And the purchase in Adore beauty was excellent. Super fast and easy. I'm gonna keep buying in this place.
  31. perfect for oily prone skin


    my sis has super oily prone skin and it gets better. she swears by this now and keep asking me to buy a backup
  32. Fantastic for teenage skin!!


    This was so good for my teenage son’s skin, he still gets the odd hormonal breakout, but this system just calms his skin right down. He gets lazy sometimes & doesn’t use the cream, but the wash & spray are just so easy to use that he uses them consistently. I even use the wash in the shower when I’m in a rush
  33. Loved its gentle, effective formula.


    I was a skin neglecter, I have 2 young kids and I am time poor, these were the first products I have used in years and they were very very effective at clearing my skin.
  34. Love it!


    I have been using these products now for over a year and it honestly saved my oily/acne prone skin! Within a week of using this skin range I could see so much improvement with my skin. So happy I found these products!
  35. A consistent routine that works!


    I’ve been on the hunt for a oily/combo skin range that prevents and treats breakouts quickly. A small amount of product goes a long way which speaks to the quality of the formula. Highly recommend!
  36. I've finally found something that works!


    Where do I start? I'm almost crying of happiness.
    Over the years I have tried just about every suggestion from drugstore to high end brands for something to help clear my acne. With no luck, I slowly started to give up until recently going on accutane. For anyone that's been on it you know "It gets worse before it gets better" and holyyyyyyy, your face feels like the Sahara desert.

  37. So far so good


    I’ve only been using this range for a few days and have already noticed a dramatic change in my complexion. My hormonal acne has settled right down is almost non existent.
  38. Effective in treating acne. Does not irritate sensitive skin.


    My daughter always experiences great results with this skin care system. It calms her sensitive skin while also making her acne less angry. Her face always appears clearer when using this range.
  39. Good for problem skin


    Really helped to improve my skin once I started using this , would definitely recommend to others
  40. Very drying


    This was effective at keeping acne at bay, but was very drying and my skin looked dull. Still use the Effaclar Duo as a spot treatment.
  41. great gift set for friends


    My friend had been hinting at wanting this gift set for ages so I got it for her for Christmas last year. Its been less than two months and I have started seeing an immediate reduction in her cystic acne.
  42. The best thing for my skin


    I have had mild blemishes on my chin and mouth area ever since I hit my 20's and I have struggled to find a product that works well. This ticks all the boxes. My skin feels smooth and hydrated while keeping and blemishes at bay. I have combination skin so the last thing I want to do is dry it out.
  43. Helped with cystic acne


    I had terrible backne and these products have helped so much. While it hasn't cured my backne the amount of large, painful pimples has diminished and the ones I get now are nowhere near as bad as they were previously. The rest of the skin on my back is also clearer, smoother and softer than ever.
  44. Great Pack


    I purchased this for my nephew who's in his early 20s with problem acne skin. We notice that his skin clears up within a week and becoming more radiant and healthy looking. Definitely worth the purchase.
  45. Great for hormonal acne / combination skin


    I never had breakouts until my 20s and now have combination skin, and usually get a lot of little red bumps on my t-zone, forehead and the tops of my cheeks.

    Have been using these products for about a year and got my start with this pack. After about 3 weeks, saw a huge improvement in my skin and now hardly ever get new breakouts.
  46. A great starter pack


    This is an excellent starter pack for troubled skin - a great way to trial this simple range. It seems a balance between effective and gentle
  47. Great value


    This is an amazing set for people suffering from acne prone skin. It has allowed me to maintain and reduce the amount of breakouts i normally get. Highly recommend for all skin types as it is not drying and is very effective.
  48. Amazing 3-step system


    My partner bought this for me and I am a convert!! These 3 products are made to be used together, and they certainly deliver. I was initially doubtful that a product for sensitive skin would do very much for me, and boy was I wrong! I have since bought the full-size products. This is now the only cleanser I will use- it mattifies my oily areas, isn't drying on my skin and is perfect for sensitive ...

  49. Not a wonder-cure but still worth a go


    Whilst I feel much of my experience with acne is also related to lifestyle/health issues such as stress, diet, hormones, etc, I'm still willing to try new products and take whatever help I can get. I don't feel like the foaming gel and Serozinc did much for me, but the Effaclar Duo+ seems to work quite effectively on breakout spots, particularly if you start to use it early on when a spot first be...

  50. My skin feels much more under control


    After a stressful few months I was breaking out in big sore blind spots around my chin and it was driving me nuts. I felt as though I had no idea what my skin was doing or why. I've been big on the basic vitamins lately and chose this three-step because of the zinc toner. I've been delighted so far. The cleanser smells light and floral and foams nicely. The toner feels like I'm drenching my skin i...

  51. Just wait it out


    I didn’t see immediate results, but I kept at it and by the fifth week of using the products I had the best skin I’ve had in my whole 30 years on the planet. I’m so glad I didn’t give up any earlier!
  52. Caused blind pimples


    I used this pack for about 5+ weeks and all it did was made my skin worse! I haven't had blind pimples in so long and I ended up with 5. The last step, the corrector I did not like at all!.
    The toner mist I do like as it only has 3 ingredients and the salt felt fresh. I'll be looking for something with active ingredients to fix up the damage
  53. Fantastic


    I have acne into my 30s and have tried everything (including proactiv), but nothing seemed to work. This system showed results within days, my skin was clearer and the pimples I had were significantly reduced. This is an amazing product, however I would suggest using a moisturiseer as it can be a little drying other than that perfect!
  54. Liked it


    I definitely noticed an improvement but it was no miracle for me unfortunately. I used it over 3 months.
  55. One of the best


    Love this set and the brand. Cleanses without drying and is really soothing for sensitive skin. Only suffer from the occasional bad breakout so I find it really does the trick at keeping my face clear and smooth.
  56. Amazing


    After swapping pills and then changing contraceptives my skin went crazy with cystic like pimples! This has cleared up my skin soo well! I started the 3 step system early may and my skin now is pimple free with only a few marks left! The cleanser and mist are nice and good to use to get into a routine but the real winner is the effaclair duo, I have repurchased that alone and use another cleanser...

  57. Good for small breakouts


    Helps reduce blemishes, I found this to be effective for smaller breakouts. When I had a really terrible breakout I felt like I needed more than these products but when breakouts were minimal I felt that this was effective at clearing them :)
  58. Purchased this for my teenage son with acne


    I didn’t find this helped his acne much at all, and he used daily I found it just made his skin really dry, red & irritated looking.
    Might be good for really oily skin!
  59. Value for money


    I just reviewed these products individually, but Ill review the set as that's what I bought. Just let me tell you how much this cleared up my HORMONAL acne. Less hard bumps around my chin, and my skin between the acne is really nice now. The water spray didn't do alot for me, just some added freshness before bed. But the wash was really amazing.
  60. so good! believe the hype!


    i have oily skin and am prone to breakouts and hormonal acne and i'm always super sceptical of any "miracle product" for acne etc, because they never seem to work, plus i'm very lazy and can't commit to any skincare routine that feels remotely complicated.

    I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! I was originally using Alpah-h which I thought was great but decided to give this a go due to its ‘target of acne prone skin’ instantly I fell in love. The cream has run out but the toner spray and cleanser are still going strong 2 months later. My skin has cleared up so much I hardly use any makeup at the moment and my skin is loving the change.

    I really love the La Roche-Posay products, especially this set. I have been using it for a few weeks and already I can see and feel a difference. It has cleared my pores and cleared most of my blemishes. My skin is so smooth and a bonus is that the spray helps with in grown hairs from shaving your legs.
  63. This actually worked!


    Wow, I've been using this system for a few months and it has really cleared up my skin. I someone who wears a full face glam makeup everyday for work and this system has cleared up all my pimples and little bumps on my skin.
    If you are oil/combo like me and suffer from breakouts then give this a try, you will love it.
  64. Finally clear skin


    I’ve always had bad skin for over 10 years now , no products seem to help with it, until I used this 3 step pack
    In just a week I saw my skin change and it was clearing up, no more big nasty break outs, no more red spots, black heads were getting smaller & my face was less oily ..

  65. No more breakouts


    I have breakout prone, combination skin that is very sensitive. I purchased this kit hoping it would be able to make my skin less oily and reduce the number and severity of my breakouts, and wow have I been surprised! It has made such a difference to my skin that I now regularly leave the house without makeup, something I haven't done in years.

  67. Great introduction to the range


    After changing birth control my hormonal acne started to flare up worse than it has since I was a teenager, so I decided to give this kit a go after reading reviews on the Effaclar products and have not been disappointed. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, and is strong enough to remove makeup without leaving my skin tight. I use the Duo as my night moisture as it isn't as great ...

  68. Not sure of the results...


    I bought this range in hopes that it would improve my acne. I don't feel that it did but it seems to have helped my brother's face as he has oilier skin than I do.

    I do love the toner spray though, the mist is so beautiful how it sprays and makes my face feel.
  69. Love!


    I definately love this brand. It’s really improved my skin and I was so surprised because nothing else has before. I have oily/combo skin. It’s really worth the price and giving it a go


    The 3 step system is amazing and perfect for sensitive skin. Cleared up my skin the first 2 weeks of using it. Will definitely repurchase when I run out !
  71. 10 years of Acne - ended with this set


    Simply put, this has worked incredibly well for my oily, sensitive, reactive and acne-prone skin. I have not had clear skin like I do right now, in over 10 years! It has also helped to clear my congestion (pores) and stopped breakouts from surfacing. The products last very long time for a "sample" set. Such excellent value for money! 1000/10 recommended!

  72. Worked Wonders


    Using this combination (cleanse, tone and zinc) really helped to clear up my skin and keep it clear for the time I was using it. After 2 months, I've still the serozinc, however the other 2 only lasted me the 2 months.
  73. Oil balancing!


    I have oily/combo skin and this set really helps calm down my spots. The cleanser is gentle for my sensitive skin. The serozinc spray isn’t drying and the effaclar isn’t oily but still provides moisture. I would highly recommend this set to keep oily skin at bay!
  74. Amazing product


    I had cystic acne, a lot of texture and redness.
    Iv been using this product for 4 months and minus the occasional odd blemish from hormones my skin is clear and not at all sensitive. So glad I have this a try it’s anazing and good price for value!
  75. Highly recommend!


    I have had adult acne since both my pregnancies and with hormone changes my skin is a mess and I have tried so many products. These products changed everything and my skin has never looked or felt better. The oiliness has since settled, my skin is clean and clear, my break outs has settled down even at that time of the month and my confidence has doubled because I no longer have to hide away! I lo...

  77. Worth every penny!


    My skin is oily one minute and combination the next. Throw in super sensitive and I have the trifecta of crappy skin. The products I've tried before have either made no difference or had something bad in them that didn't bode well with my skin. Since using this for roughly 4 months, I have had no more than 5 spots in total since starting this. Its amazing and for the record i'm in my early 30's.
  78. Amazing


    I have had adult acne since I was 21. I am now 34 and have spent thousands of dollars in products to help my skin. All I have to say about this product is that it is amazing. After 3 weeks my skin looks so good. The best it has looked and felt in years
