    Keeps skin clear!

    Love this product. The Canadian and European version uses salicylic acid (unlike the American version which has benzoyl peroxide). I like that this doesn't bleach my pillows. It's gentle and I can use it on a daily basis to keep my pores clear. Nice texture, great under makeup. Nice tube package. One of my staples!

    je crois bien que la réputation de ce produit le précède ! il est juste topissime !
    il unifie la peau du visage de manière remarquable : après la première utilisation on remarque déja une différence puis après une utilisation régulière l'effet est tellement significatif que l'on ne peut plus s'en passer !
    il régule le sebum, les boutons se font de plus en plus rare et pour les plus chanceuses ( dont je fais partie) il disparaissent et c'est très appréciable lorsque comme moi on voit apparaitre des boutons autours de la bouche surtout, en période prémenstruelle ! Encore un produit qui fait vraiment partie de mes indispensables ! de plus j'ai l'impression ( je ne savais pas que c'était le cas) qu'il m'hydrate la peau .
    Et cerise sur le gateau : une texture légère et fondante non collante ainsi que son odeur agréable et discrète font que son application est un plaisir !

    The cosmetics lady at shoppers recommended that I use this as a spot treatment for breakouts, and it didn't work at all. I don't find it to be moisturizing enough for a daily moisturizer, so for me it really has no purpose.

    I would recommend Effaclar Duo to anyone with active breakouts or acne prone skin. The light lotion with 0.5% salicylic acid is effective but gentle enough for sensitive skin. If you have dry or dry combination skin you might want to add a moisturizer, but for my oily skin this stuff is perfect.

    I have fairly sensitive skin and this cream does not bother me at all. Also one time I had exzema on my face and this cleared it up. My dermatologist recommends this brand as well.

    It is a good produc, I only use it as a spot treatment on my chin and it work well. It does not dry my skin at all and does not smell anything. I will try the duo plus in the future, it probably work even better.

    I really like this cream and while it is a little expensive, I think it is totally worth it. It is effective in controlling and preventing my adult acne and doesn't dry out your skin like other treatments.

    This cream has truly been a miracle for my acne. I have been suffering from acne for years, since I was in middle school and have literally tried just about everything. Nothing has worked quite as well as this product. Although a bit pricey (for my budget anyway, this website says its $25 but it sells for $40 in my area) and hard to track down (only sold in certain stores, around me only at CVS and at a Walgreens several towns away), I completely think it is worth it. When I did manage to track a bottle and tried it, I couldn't believe my eyes..my acne started disappearing within a few days! It also seems to be doing wonders for the hyperpigmentation I was left with after the zits disappeared. The cream feels great on the skin and makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. It has a very effective ingredient in it that has been proven to reduce acne-benzoyl peroxide and in a higher dose than most creams (5.5%) but most importantly it doesn't dry out my skin, as a lot of acne medicine is known to do. This is definitely a staple in my skincare routine. The amount of product you get in the bottle is worth the price as only a little bit is needed to cover the face. I am currently on my second bottle and plan to repurchase it again and again. I am a very satisfied customer :)

    I purchased this product because it had good reviews. It is an acne treatment that is supposed to unclog pores and minimize appearance of breakouts. It is an effective product for breakouts but I find it does nothing spectacular for clogged pores like whiteheads and blackheads. IT says you may apply 1 to 3 times a day or as directed by a doctor. I sometimes apply it three times if necessary. Overall, I love it, but for the price, I am still on the search for another product like this. It has 0.5 percent salicylic acid, which is a quarter of the usual percentage. I love how this is gentle though. I'm not sure how the percentage affects the effectiveness like if a 2% would leave scarring or dryness versus this 0.5%.
