Loooove this so much! My acne is almost completely gone after using this for a few months. I get mine sometimes from target and sometimes from amazon. I highly recommend to anyone struggling with acne.

The whole line of acne medication is just to die for. I got a set with this spot treatment and have used it for 3 weeks now. I’ve gotten amazing results that I even feel comfortable walking out the door without makeup.

Went to a dermatologist in Colombia who recommended this product when my skin was breaking out badly. I used it for 3 months until my skin cleared out. Had to pair it with the same brand moisturizer because it can dry out your skin

his is exactly what my face needed. Use only a pea sized amount on a freshly cleaned face before any other serums, lotions, or acne treatments. This stuff is exfoliation on the cellular level and needs to be directly on the skin. More than a pea sized amount will leave your face dry and flaky. Give it a couple weeks and you will notice a difference in your pores and acne. It is not harsh, as long as you don't use a lot. Even if it spreads thin, it is still working, and working hard.I have cystic acne and i use benxoyle peroxide wash and spot treatment. I wash, then use this, then use my spot treatment, then use lotion. It has been the turning point in my battle against acne. So thankful for this. I will continue buying it again. I can't see myself without it. SO GREAT!!

Effeclar k of the Roche Posay

According to their page it is for Mixed skins and fats.
Rebellious blackheads, uneven skin texture, glitter. New aquagel texture ultra-fresh and non-greasy of fast absorption.
Hydration and comfort throughout the day. my opinion:
It is a wonder, dry very fast granites, it eliminates the inflammation of the area, it does not dry the skin and you can use it under the makeup without problem. The results are super notorious and fast, besides that leaves the skin smoother and much lozana. It absorbs super fast and has a light texture on the face.

Conclusion? I loved it and I recommend it with my eyes closed, it is excellent product.

La Roche Posay Effaclar products are the only products I've found that keep my skin clear of breakouts. I can use it every day, paired with my favorite moisturizer, without overdrying my skin. I typically have several big breakouts at a time, but when I use Effaclar, they clear up, often before breaking through the skin. I have been using these products for 2 years and have no plan to leave this skin regimen.

I really like this product, it has helped me a lot with my active throughout the years of being a teenager. It can be drying if you use it too often but if you just put it on your blemishes every once in a while it can work wonders. It also helps diminish dark spots on your face.
