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 received the full size tube to test out from la roche posay . First impression is that it is very very lightweight. Absorbs quickly .Not harsh on my acne prone skin. It controls the excess oil production. My skin feels so soft and I have felt instant change overnight. Amazing .Going to apply it everyday twice and will get back with detailed review. Till now i am loving it.

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.

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 :)

This is very refreshing, soothing and hydrating product for blemish prone skin. It doesn’t irritate and feels very gentle. It does help to reduce blemishes and its severity. Texture is very gentle, lathering and fast absorbing, plus it feels very refreshing. The size of the package is quite big, don’t need to use lots of product and it lasts long time. In my opinion it is good value for money. I would recommend.

Yes this is a good spot treatment but it will bleach your pillows/sheets due to the benzoyl peroxide. Also make sure to use a good moisturizer because it can be very drying.

It worths but be sure to use it regularly- it will show effect after minimum 2 weeks in the beginning I thought that it’s not working but You have to use it regularly and it’s a lifechanger be sure to use it also if you don’t have any acne

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment Is it worth the price? Does it really work on pimple? Does it work on pimples only or also blackheads? Does the product last long ?
Leny M. il y a 10 mois
Overall it's a good product and it works amazingly when you pair it with a good but simple facial care routine. You may feel some itching or redness the first few times you apply it, but nothing serious.I used it for 6 months last year because of a severe acne breakout that I had and I could really appreciate several changes the first week but, the real changes I saw between the 4 and 5 weeks of use. So, keep that in mind. It greatly reduces the appearance of blackheads and although at first it seems that it makes pimples worse, in truth what it does is speed up the maturation process a bit and helps reduce inflammation, a lot.If you use it daily it can last up to 3 months.
