  1. The best!

    I am absolutely obsessed with this product. I have very reactive skin that goes red very easily. I don't suffer from acne, but I do get an occasional pimple. It is so soothing and calming. I use it with the Serozinc spray and my skin has never looked better. I think that this product is designed for oily skin, but it works beautifully on my dry skin!
  2. Noticeably smaller pores!

    Great for use under a night cream. I used when I had very congestion skin and within a day noticed a difference.
  3. Love this stuff!

    I have naturally oily skin and large pores, this stuff has worked to well for my skin. The the texture is lovely and my skin feels so smooth after applying it.
  4. Unsure about this product

    I tried this thinking it may work for the occasional bad hormonal breakouts I get and used it pretty regularly in my routine for both day and night. I didn't see much difference in my dry to normal skin at all, but it didn't make it worse so...
  5. Good chemical exfoliant

    I find this product a really effective exfoliator, ever if you don't have acne prone skin! Exfoliates in a gentle manner to resurface and smooth out skin. Used once or twice a week it was great
  6. Very mattifying and great for combination skin

    I have oily/combination skin and mostly break out in my T-Zone and the tops of my cheeks. I never had breakouts until I turned 20, and after doing some research about hormonal acne I stumbled upon this product.

    I started using this moisturizer along with the rest of the La Roche-Poasy Acne 3-Step system about a year ago and I absolutely love it! Always leaves my skin looking really matte and glowy. I have found with other moisturizers that my T-Zone and forehead will still look really oily afterward whereas the rest of my skin is appropriately moisturized but this product seems to work really well with my combination skin.

    The only downside is that I wish you could purchase a bigger size of this stuff. I usually run out of this product before I am just over halfway through with the Effaclar cleanser.
  7. Reduces discolouration and evens out skin

    Such a great product that I have been using religiously for about 2 years. I have not found anything like it, especially in this price point. I like to use it after my serums and before an oil. But even if I’m travelling and all I have is this and a cleanser - I’m set!
  8. The best product I know of for problem skin

    I’ve been using effeclare duo for years of and on, I’m 46 now and as my skin gets older I need it less. My skin does still clog though. Since I’ve been using this I haven’t had any real problems with breakouts or blackheads.
  9. Great acne product

    Love this, feels like a cool gel going on..always reach for this when my skin is unhappy.. does a good job of clearing pimples and the little whitehead bumps under the skin I sometimes get around my chin. Wish I'd found this sooner.
  10. didn't clear my skin

    I bought this a few years ago when I had a terrible bout of acne and I didn't notice this clearing my spots at all. thankfully the acne went away after I stopped using this and switched to a medication instead
  11. My favourite acne product

    This product is one of my fav to treat acne! Get rid of pimples and helps get rid of scaring. Highly recommend!
  12. Highly Recommended

    I am 47 and still have problems with congested skin. Love this formula and my skin is def better with it than without it. I have tried other creams and this is by far the best. Highly recommend.
  13. Good for acne

    My skin is noticeably clearer after using this, it has a lot of good ingredients to keep skin healthy.
  14. ok

    not the best, didn't find it really did too much for me, but on the other hand my breakouts didn't seem to get worse while using? not too sure about This product to be honest.. it didn't help clear blackheads but my skin definitely didn't get worse while using
  15. Give it a try

    For years I’ve had congestion on my forehead and the only thing hat got rid of it was proactive but I hated how dry my skin got. And hot it bleached my towels!

    I tried this after a pharmacy rep recommended it years ago and I haven’t looked back.
  16. Skin is so clear

    I'm prone to breakouts and touch my face far too much when I'm stressed, but this product has changed everything. I barely breakout anymore and if I do my skin clears up much quicker. I use this once a day and follow with a moisturiser. I did have a slight reaction too it in the beginning but only lasted about a week and my skin cleared up very quickly. Recommend!
  17. go to product during break-outs

    I have normal to dry skin and I usually do not need this product in my skin care routine, though, when exposed to sunlight, my skin becomes slightly sensitive even with a spf on - this is when this product reduces oil and sebum formation on the skin, and even fades blackheads time to time.
    Would recommend this to all combination skin types and dry skin in summer/explosed to sunlight weathers.
  18. Not for me

    Unfortunately this product didn’t work for my skin. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to redness and this irritated my skin. It could’ve been that I wasn’t using the product correctly as I’m used to applying a decent amount of product on my pimples. If you try this make sure you do a patch test beforehand and only spread a thin layer on the skin.
  19. Excellent

    I used this product for twelve months to tackle the symptoms of a mild case of hormonal acne (several blemishes on the jaw-line). This product was beneficial in reducing the break-outs and now that my hormones have calmed down, I effectively have no scarring.
  20. Didn't do anything for me

    I have combination skin with hormonal acne that is not particularly sensitive and not prone to irritation or redness. I have heard so much about this product and so many people swear by it, but I found it did not help me at all. It does feel very nourishing and I ended up just using it as my moisturiser, but it did not diminish my breakouts at all. The best I can say is that at least it didn't make my skin worse. My best guess is that it may have been too gentle/not strong enough for my skin, on which I have used active ingredients like vitamin A and C, and it is not very reactive. For me, it felt like a waste of good money for such a small tube that did not work for me. I always say try everything if you have acne because something different works for everyone, but my recommendation would be to try other, better value products before this.
