Product Highlights
“First of all, let me put it out there that I have very sensitive skin. I have be very careful about what I put on my face. I've never really been able to use acne creams because they cause so much discomfort. When I started using this product, I was broken out very badly, so it was perfect timing for me to try this out. The cream itself is very light and creamy. It applied very easily and wasn't greasy at all. I did have some slight tingling and burning due to my skin's sensitivity. However, it didn't last very long. I've been using the product for about 5 days now and have noticed a dramatic change in my skin's appearance. I give this product an A+!” in reviews
“I will say, however, that my daughter who is 14 has very very sensitive skin and this stuff dried her out pretty bad so she doesn't like it.” in reviews

I have been using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment for around 4 weeks along with Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel 200ml , morning and night, after cleansing and have noticed a definite improvement to my skin. Ive always suffered with blemishes and was having a really bad breakout at the start of quarantine. I decided it was the perfect time to give my skin a break from daily heavy makeup and start a new routine. Since I have started using this moisturiser I have only have only had one new spot appear and it disappeared within a couple of days (before this I was getting several new blemishes daily) my face also seems super smooth and and my skin is glowing. Although it hasn't miraculously transformed my skin, it is a lot better than it has ever been. I feel confident to go out and about without makeup, which is something I have never done. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light moisturiser for blemish prone skin

This is a great product to use on spots. The bp kills the acne bacteria and works great for my skin. The one thing you have to be aware of is that this will bleach anything your face touches. So make sure your pajamas and pillow case are white so you don’t ruin them. I also found this product to be a little strong a the beginning and used it sparingly until my skin became accustomed to it. I do make sure to use moisturizer with this and sometimes when my skin is extra dry I put a light weight one, such as the Toleriane liquid one under and then one on top.

Produit miracle pour l’acné! J'ai, j'avais, une peau très marqué par l'acnés (cicatrice de ma puberté plus les marques des quelques boutons ponctuels que j'en peux encore avoir aujourd'hui), et ce produit, couplé au Toning de la même marque à changé mon visage ! Grâce à ce produit la grande majorité de mes cicatrices (marques rouges, et creux) ont été atténué, voir on disparu et cela en seulement 2/3 semaine ! Il reste évidement quelques traces, et ma peau n'est pas parfaite surtout que je continue à avoir quelques boutons, mais ce produit en seulement 2/3 semaines à éliminé ce que j'ai voulu faire disparaître de mon visage depuis tant d'année!

I've been struggling with acne since my early teens (lucky me) and have tested nearly every product out there, including 6-months of Accutane. My skin still gets moderate breakouts every month and I find that incorporating the Effaclar Duo Moisturizer and Spot Treatment has significantly helped reduce the duration of the breakout and heal the problem areas. The spot treatment can be a bit drying, but if used with a moisturizer then this easily solves the issue. The reasonable price point is also a plus for this product!

This is one of my favourite everyday moisturisers, it’s super light weight and perfect for sensitive skin! I apply this AM and PM and have seen results within a week. It contains a cocktail for beneficial ingredients including glycerin and salicylic acid which helps blemishes.

The ONLY THING that has worked for my acne! Within the past year I've developed a ton painful acne all along my jawline and chin. Tried the light masks, vitamins, all the different skincare steps etc. I used a sample from a dermatologist and that's how I discovered this amazing product. This is terribly drying the first several days, but worth it! Use a face mask and don't forget to moisturize. Eventually your skin adjusts and isn't so terribly dried out - but I saw results the very next day! I recommend using morning and night if you have severe acne as I do 🥰🥰🥰 La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Spot TreatmentRoche

Absolutely incredible product. I would truly recommend this to anyone who is suffering from even severe acne. I have tried prescribed creams for my acne but nothing worked for me. I have used this product along side of some lifestyle changes and I’m so thankful for the change in my skin. My acne scarring has gone down dramatically - I occasionally get spots on my cheeks now ( this is where most of my acne was ! ) but I apply this cream thicker over the spot and then lightly over my whole face - and over the night the spot doesn’t come to the surface ! It truly heals my skin and I don’t think I’ll ever not want to purchase :)

Mara B. hey girl ! I use this as I’ve had really bad acne and it works amazing. I really think most people can absolutely use the product because it’s designed for very sensitive skin ! Effaclar Duo is specifically made for people with oily / acne prone skin - But for people with occasional breakouts , it might be best to use it as a spot treatment for individual breakouts ! From my experience I definitely believe it would work brilliant for you and your skin ☺️ hope that helps x

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment Should i use this product before of after any type of serum like vitamin c or zinc?
Adriana L. • il y a 16 jours
You shouldn’t use it during the day. If you’re going to use it during the night, they recommend apply it on you clean skin, because other product affect the efficiency of benzoyl peroxide.. some days I apply it after all my routine products or I apply it and after 3 hours I finish my routine.
