Most Helpful Positive



actually really impressed with this, has improved my acne and i had tried everything!

Most Helpful Criticism



This product is tagged as suitable for dry skin, but I find gel cleansers are generally more suited to oily skin. I have normal to dry skin that is very acne prone, but I found this cleanser far too drying. That said, I gave it to a relative with combo skin and they also found it drying. I know it's a popular product so I won't rate it too poorly, but I couldn't continue to use it on my skin type!
  1. impressed


    actually really impressed with this, has improved my acne and i had tried everything!
  2. Where have you been all my life


    This is literally a game changer. I love that it’s a gel that foams up and really cleans out the oil in the pores. Feels clean, my skin feels less oily and I’ve noticed the pesky pimples slowly leaving 👋🏼 will definitely buy in larger sizes
  3. amazing!


    so good, great at treating acne and preventing. didn't dry me out (i have oily skin though so i rarely dry out). kept my skin feeling soft and healthy. no downsides at all. bought this to try out the brand and once finished i bought the full sized versions. my skin is looking so much better now, clearer, less shiny, less blackheads.
  4. Blemish prone delight


    I love this starter set! This wash and treatment kit has seen a huge improvement in my skin over the last couple of months. Even as a trial set, it has lasted me nearly three months with twice daily use and I'll be purchasing the full sized.
    My skin is blemish prone and now I rarely has breakouts or if I do, they are significantly reduced in size and severity. Be sure to follow with a good m...

  5. Good for young people


    This size is pretty good. Can try it first and don't need to afraid about buy the full size and then found it's not good for ourselves. It's good for the acne. But the cleanser is just so-so.
  6. Great products


    Such a cost effective way to trial these products. I started with this kit and have continued using both products which have significantly helped to reduce the amount of oil on my face
  7. The best


    Sensitive, acne prone, oily to combination skin types look no further as this is the best anti-acne kit out there. It is so inexpensive that anyone can try out for themselves.
  8. Amazing!


    I bought this 2 months ago and waited for 2 months period to confidently say La Roche-Posay Effaclar anti-acne starter kit worked for me! Im so pleased with the face wash and the cream that helps to reduce acne in time.
  9. Great starter pack!!!


    Was not sure of which products from La Roche-Posay to purchase. So I purchased this kit. The products were that good, therefore I purchased the bigger sizes of each of the product, not long after.
  10. I love these two products!


    This is the perfect place to start if you have problem skin. I would use both of these every day and see a noticeable difference in my skin texture. Especially with little under the skin bumps. I love love love
  11. Great for acne!


    Bought this out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised! Really helped with controlling my acne.
  12. Amazing


    Amazing kit for acne prone, sensitive skin. Incredible value for money.

  14. Good starter kit!


    Really good value starter kit. Got this during a really bad breakout. Size wise - this tube of moisturiser is good for 1-2 weeks' application and helped hydrate/calm acne; cleanser lasted a lot longer (not much per use is needed). Found cleanser a little strong for me so only used it at night. Recommend for trying out the brand's anti-acne range.
  15. great for acne prone skin


    i have aged acne prone skin and this set had been wonderful to me. the cleanser is a bit drying but you can put a nice moisturiser on it and it will be all good. waiting to see the results :)
  16. awesome for a beginners skincare


    i got this for my brother who has a lot of acne and he loves it, its super simple for him to use and the packaging is cute but very gender neutral
  17. Not a long term solution


    This regime started well for my acne, but after a month or two started to lose effect and my skin went back to normal. I have been back to it about three times with the same results. I have very bad cystic acne (only eventually solved by Oratane), so might be different for less severe acne.
  18. awesome way to start out an skincare routine


    such a good starting place for anti-acne skin care
  19. like the little duo+ in this kit


    like the little duo+ in this kit, great starter kit
  20. Good trial sizes


    Great sizes to be able to trial a product.
    Seems to feel great on the skin and starting to see a different in the skin. Which I’m sure is helped by this product
  21. Great wash and moisturiser


    These two products are so great, my skin feels so clean! And really reduces any blemishes that pop up.
  22. Great kit


    I have loved using this, the gel cleanser is great for sensitive skin and the treatment is a favourite of mine. It leaves such a beautiful soft texture and has definitely helped with old blemishes and not getting any new ones. The sizes are quite generous so they have last me quite a while
  23. nice but quite small


    products are small and don't last long
  24. Tried this and haven't looked back!


    La Roche Posay Anti Acne kit has changed my life. I was prone to lots of blemishes around my jawline that were painful and scarring. Since using the gel and cream in this kit, along with a few other La Roche products, I've seen a huge improvement. I no longer get blemishes on my face at all. The gel lasts for ages and so can the cream depending how heavy handed you are. Recommended these products ...

  25. Excellent product


    I recently purchased the La Roche Posay Anti Acne Starter kit for my 14 year old son and the results have been excellent. His skin is much less congested and it has reduced his breakouts and redness. I would definitely recommend this kit.
  26. Perfect starter pack


    We brought this pack overseas and it was perfect for the humid hot destination we were travelling to. My son loves both products and says it helps with break outs and acne flare ups.
  27. don't expect a miracle


    For those who were previously using harsh acne treatments will see an improvement in their skin but don't expect this to clear up your acne
    an affordable intro to la roche posay
  28. it works well


    It really works. I use it everytime I got acnes, just apply on and wait for a whole night. The acnes are almost gone in the next morning. Love it.
  29. Best acne kit


    As I have acne for almost my whole life, I have tried to many stuff. When I got referred to this kit I thought that it would be the same but it wasn’t. The cleanser is beautiful, it leaves a very fresh feeling after the wash and the cream actually helped me to reduce my acne redness.

    I went and bought the same ones again and again and again. Totally recommend!
  30. Fantastic for young skin!


    I purchased this for my tweens whose skin has started playing up and it's been a fantastic find.

  32. makes a great gift


    perfect gift for teenagers suffering with bad skin
  33. Effective


    This anti acne kit is absolutely effective in reducing my acne. I have less acne after I use the products.
  34. Not convinced


    The cleanser was good, able to remove those last traces of makeup that my wipes don't get, although I didn't personally like the soapy smell of the cleanser. I didn't find the spot treatment to be particularly effective, with spots looking exactly the same the next morning after applying the spot treatment the night before.
  35. good way to test out products


    I like that you can buy a lot of the la Roche posey products in packs, it makes testing out different routines much easier
  36. Worked wonders!


    This product worked really well on my acne prone skin, it didn't dry my skin out but it didn't leave it oily either. I really liked it and have repurchased it twice!
  37. Perfect travel sized kit


    I bought this for a two week trip and the cleanser is a perfect size for this. Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and I've noticed a definite improvement in size/angry-ness of spots from using the treatment.
  38. very good


    Another great product from the line. I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use.
  39. Effective


    This product helped bring back a smile to my daughters face. She found it quite effective with her acne problems. It work quickly and work well with her oil skin.
  40. Great


    I bought this a few months ago when I suddenly started getting cystic acne & have been using it since! This immediately reduced the acne redness and size overnight, and has helped prevent more cases of acne since! The sample lasts much longer than 2 weeks, and the cream’s great as both a normal face cream and a spot treatment.

  41. Mixed results


    The cleanser is perfectly fine, very similar to other cleansers for oily skin.
    I didn't find the spot treatment effective at all on pimples, they didn't look any different after using it. I prefer to use more concentrated serum forms of the ingredients here (salicylic acid and niacinamide/zinc) from The Ordinary.
    Everyone has different results though, this kit is a good way to test ou...

  42. Great for my teen


    I purchased this product as a birthday gift for my 13 yr old teen as she has mild acne. the results were very good and her skin was clearer in around 10 days. She uses it morning and night and it lasts a long time as well. She is very happy with the results.
  43. Best Skincare


    Honestly, I swear by these products! They have done wonders for my hormonal acne 24-year-old self. I have tried every type of skincare and this works the best. I have repurchased this twice in a year and I still have cleanser left over from the first purchase, a little goes a long way.
  44. cheap but unsure about results


    This was cheap and great to trial the two products. However , I don't feel either product made much difference to my hormonal chin acne.

    I still use the face wash for the sake of using a face wash , after a oil cleaner as this cleaner counteracts the oils in the oil cleanser.

    I will not repurchase.
  45. Wow


    Honestly i have struggled for years with hormonal adult acne and tried everything with no success! Until i tried this! My skin within two weeks has cleared up immensely and is smooth! Fabulous products.

  46. Fantastic


    I have very oily skin and both of these products have become part of my every day routine. They are gentle and effective. I Love the travel size for holidays, but it's also a good way to trial new skincare.
  47. Great kit


    I have combination skin and get acne and acne scarring. I have used Effaclar Duo in the past on its own, but not the cleanser. I found the cleanser to be effective at removing any makeup left on my face. It lathers up really easily and doesn't irritate my skin. Effaclar duo is a little drying and I mainly use it as a spot treatment when needed. Since using this kit I have found that it has control...

  48. Goodbye scarring


    After finally clearing my cystic acne after a few years, I tried a number of cleansers to find one to stick to and was also looking for something to clear my redness/scars. I’m so glad I tried this kit. The cleanser isn’t harsh or irritating at all however the effaclar duo is the standout product for me. My redness and scarring have significantly reduced to the point of my skin almost being comple...

  49. amazing for oily acne skin


    I have very sensitive oily skin, with lots of hormonal acne and black heads around my pores and tzone and using this i have noticed a significant difference in about a month, slowly clearing up my acne and dries out my tzone slightly

  50. Actually works!


    I have been searching for something that does not irritate my sensitive skin, something that helps reduce breakouts, something that prevents blackheads & heal fast! I've finally found it! I noticed results within 24hrs and I'm still loving it
  51. Cured my adult acne


    I have struggled with adult acne for most of my life. I tried EVERYTHING! All the expensive treatments and products and nothing worked. I resigned myself to going on Roaccutane again until I tried this. I was really surprised it worked because all the more expensive and better known acne treatments didn’t. My skin doesn’t like heavy creams or harsh products but it really cleared up after using thi...

  52. Great little kit


    I picked up this kit as I was having some troublesome breakouts and wanted to try this brand. I really liked the cleanser, it left my skin feeling really clean, like squeaky clean, clean!! The serum was a great addition too. My breakouts did clear up but I didn't notice a difference in the appearance of my pores.
  53. Very drying


    I found this product too harsh and drying for my dry skin. Although I suffer from hormonal acne, I found that this product dried out my skin too much. I'm glad I only tried the small starter kit. Could be amazing if you had oily skin though!
  54. Helps calm and clear skin


    Suffering hormonal acne and having very sensitive and combination skin, I was very skeptical in trying another product that would make my skin erupt more. I was quite surprised to find that this product helped to calm active breakouts and help clear my skin quickly and at least half the time of active acne.
    Don't expect miracles from this product or any other, but if you have problematic ski...

  55. Good.


    This is good for people who have sensitive skin and breakouts, personally I didn't see too much of a change in my skin but I didn't notice any irritation or more breakouts when using this.
  56. Adult acne skin


    I have acne sensitive skin after being a teenager. Until i found this brand, controlled my acne but wont dried out my skin. Good price. Great for sensitive skin. Recommended.
  57. Pretty Good


    I have hormonal acne and am currently on hormone replacement to get rid of it. I thought I would try this kit to speed up the process as I am getting impatient and someone in the reviews said this helped with their hormonal acne. Overall I feel as though this didn't make my skin worse, but did not make it noticeably better either. I would probably say this would be good for people with normal acne...

  58. Didn't work for me


    I have combination skin (dry on the cheeks, oily in the T zone) and acne in the form of really red dry patches on my skin. I was very confident that this product would help and I perceive it to be a trusted brand. Unfortunately though I've broken out. I've been using these two products alongside the toner and moisturiser of the same brand. The cleanser feels nice on my skin and doesn't seem to try...

  59. Does not work miracles on me but calms my skin


    I tired out this product when I had severer breakouts months ago. I find the combination of this product quite smoothing on my skin. It might have help with my skin a little but I don't see any significant improvements on my skin. At least they didn't further worsen my breakout. So for this reason, I'd still recommend this kit.
  60. Best anti-acne product I've tried in 20 years


    I wish this was around when I was a teenager. Ive been using alpha H for years and my skin starting getting red and sensitive after years of using what I though was my holy grail with the liquid gold. So I stopped everything and switched to something that would help sensitive and acne prone skin. These products have given me amazing results. The cleanser removes all dirt and impurities without dry...

  61. Life/skin saver


    Ive used the effaclar cleanser for years now and my skin loves it. Whenever in swap to another product I regret it. I’m on my early 40s and still get breakouts and as I’m getting older my skin is also dryer - this product address both concerns. I buy this size when I travel.


    TERRIFIC product. I spent about 3 years trying to work out what the hell was going on with my skin and then decided to give it one more go, before going to a doctor and getting hormonal treatment. It worked like magic, I can't remember my skin being so clear :)
  63. 3 weeks is all it took!


    I had never tried Effaclar before so I bought this trial kit.
    After 3 weeks my skin is looking clear. My acne is barely visible.
    Highly recommend it.
