Most Helpful Positive

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.

Most Helpful Criticism

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 out the products and see if they work for you.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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 controlled breakouts to just a few spots here and there and they occur less often as well. I'm pretty happy with this product and would re-purchase.
  9. 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 completely clear. I thought the scars on my cheekbones would be there forever so am super happy with this product. A little goes a long way so the price is great. Will be purchasing full size in both products. Note: I also use The Ordinary Niacinimide, hylaronic acid, sunscreen and moisturiser but had not seen such a significant decrease in my scaring and skin tone until I used the La Roche Posay acne starter kit.
  10. 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

  11. 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
  12. 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 this. A year later and my skin is still clear!
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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 skin give this product a a go it's well worth it for the price.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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, but not hormonal acne like myself from experience. Maybe results would be more visible with the full size!
  19. 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 it out too much. The duo correct cream though, I'm honestly not sure what it's for. I've been putting that on every morning. Three weeks in and my skin is less dry, but I've broken out in pimples. Didn't work for my skin, might still work for yours.
  20. 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.
  21. 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 drying out my skin. The effaclar duo reduces the size of my pores and leaves my skin so silky soft its amazing. I even notice that my skin's tone has evened out. I couldn't be happier with these results in my 40s! would highly recommend and this pack is perfect for travelling.
  22. 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.
  23. WHEN I LOST HOPE...

    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 :)
  24. 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.
