I got the script from my doctor so it was covered by my insurance. I have oily yet dry skin. I have been using proactive for a while and it has made my skin really dry. My blemishes are out of control and recently I noticed my face was becoming darker and more breakouts were appearing. I went to my doctor and he recommended this medication. It's been 1 week since I started using it and I love it. Pimples have dried up. Pimples that were beneath the surface came to. I popped the white head and then the cream just reduced the swelling and redness. It takes about a week to see results that are very visible. Otherwise in the first few days you don't notice much difference. I use the cream at night cuz it's shiny and sticky. I also use an eminence lotion over top to keep my skin hydrated. As this cream makes my skin dry. I love it. And I am looking forward to the blemishes decreasing in pigmentation.

I've used this all throughout high school.. only recently (about half a year) I've been getting into more natural products like tea tree oil and witch hazel for my persistent pimples. When I used it, I found that it worked sometimes and did absolutely nothing other times - I just used it cause I had nothing else but my face was never fully clear of acne.
After going through a ton of natural products, I have renewed my prescription to this gel. First off, it works faster than anything else I've tried. I've been using it for 2 days and I can already see an improvement. I basically just lather this on all my breakouts before bed, and it dries white-ish.. kinda like glue (but NOT sticky, which I like). It's not a miracle cream, but it's slowly working.
Now, since I've used it before - I have a terrible feeling it'll become useless over time. My skin tends to be really tough and decides to become immune or non-responsive to certain things so I'm wondering how long I can use this before I'm just using it out of routine. I suppose it deserves 4 stars because I DID come back to it and it DOES slowly clear things up.

I cannot say enough good things about this product. From the age of 12 I have had acne that has never really cleared up, even though I have been on birth control pills for7 years. I have tried so many products, proactive made my acne worse and dried out my face, I can't bare to list all the other products i've tried so much money thrown away. Now I rinse my face with clean hands in the morning apply a thin layer of this cream and oh my god!!!!
I have been on this for only 5 days but dear lord what an improvement I couldnt believe it I started to cry. Within 4 days not only did I suddenly notice my face was clearer, but my boyfriend did too!!! I did not expect an acne product to work so quickly I pray that it continues to improve my face.
Oh and it even clears black heads. I have very deep black heads on my nose that I have never been able to get rid of, I kid you not by the 3rd day I noticed that the black heads were actually 'emptying' on their own. This is a dream come true, I have always dreamed of a face I can walk out in without any makeup on. I will be religious with this medication because believe me IT WORKS!!!
I use 100% pure argan oil as a moisturizer you don't need much very little will do. I encourage everyone to buy a bottle, it has to be 100% pure tho. Argan oil is well known for healing the red acne scars left behind.
Thank you so much Clindoxyl you have done what no other product has done for me, I am so glad I asked about it. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to see improvement and even after just 5 days I can't stop smiling.
I will update this in a few months and let you know how it goes. I have my fingers crossed that finally FINALLY I have found what works for me.

I am 41 years old and have struggled with cystic acne for a very long time. As an adult, my acne was connected to my hormone cycle and I could count on at least 1 deep cyst every month which left a mark and took months to really go away and was so embarassing socially and hard on me emotionally. I have tried many prescription creams, antibiotics and birth control pills. I even did a year long stint with my naturopath and completely went to clean eating(no wheat, dairy, sugar, etc.). NOTHING really made my cysts stop....until my girlfriends told me about Clindoxyl. You can imagine I was not excited about trying yet another cream. This stuff is magic!!! I can't say enough good things about it. My skin is not dry, flakey or red and NO ACNE for over 3 months and my skin is less oily. I have never had perfect, glowing skin and now I do. Every once in a while I have to pinch myself as I can't believe I actually found something as simple as a cream that works. The best things is that the benzol peroxide in the cream will never stop working as the acne bacteria do not become resisitant to it. Try this cream if you have given up like I did. I will never stop using it! It is a miracle cream!!!!

This is magic in a very small tube and saved my life. I have struggled with my acne since I was a teenager. In my 20s I found Proactiv and it did a pretty good job controlling my acne for about 10 years. When I turned 30, my skin changed and I started breaking out pretty heavily for the last few years. 6 months ago, I started breaking out quite seriously with large cystic bumps all over my face (chin, cheek, above the lip, between my eyes and forehead). When my doctor prescribed this gel, I was highly skeptical, but since my insurance covers the entire cost of the prescription I picked it up. Within 2-3 days of using clindoxyl, all of the acne on my face was noticeably improved and within 4 weeks my entire face was clear. Over the next 2 to 3 months all of the scarring was improved or disappeared and I haven't had a single break out for 5 months. THIS WORKS!! Trust me, a little gel goes a long way. Not only do I no longer need the heavy foundation, but I was recently able to walk out the door with only pressed powder on my face (have not been able to do that since my 20s).

I suffered from acne since I was 14 years old. I started using this product when I was 17-18 and this saved my skin! I was prescribed with differin and clindoxyl and after 2 months, my acne cleared up COMPLETELY. However, I thought that the differin wasn't working so I just used clindoxyl for the next few months. Whenever I get the occasional zit, I just apply this and the next day, the acne would've been gone or at least be way less inflamed than the night before. Then...I ran out of this stuff and I didn't get it again as I was at another country for vacation. My skin started to break out after I stopped using this! And now I have to be on this again! SO NEVER STOP USING IT EVEN IF YOU THINK YOUR SKIN IS BETTER! I LEARNED THIS THE HARD WAY! (I have to use retin-A micro and clindoxyl to clear up my skin again!)

I've used this ever since I was about 12 or 13 years old. My doctor prescribed it to me along with a a few other things, but this was the only one that I really noticed a dramatic change in my skin. After only a few weeks of use, it made my skin perfectly clear applying it once a day before bed. I stopped using it for a while and sure enough, my skin started breaking out again. I stopped using it for about 2 years (I have no idea why) and have finally renewed my prescription. It works as well as it ever did, and I'm so thankful I have insurance that covers most of the cost of this product because it is a miracle.

This is the only product that worked for my skin even after I stopped using and started back. It really is one of the best out there. For those of you who skin is irrated by the product maybe your dosage is too much. My dermatologist told me to use a dot size amount on my entire face so maybe you guys should to that too :)

I love this product. I had extremely severe acne, and after just 6 weeks of nightly use, my skin became much better, and within 6 months, cleared up COMPLETELY. I don't think it'd take 6 moths for most people, it only took that long for me because I had ridiculously HORRIBLE acne ALL over my face. But the point is, I've been using this for about a year and a half, and I haven't become "immune" to the ingredients, as it still does everything it's supposed to. My doctor tells me to use this at night, which I do, so when I wake up in the morning, my skin is EXTREMELY dry. I highly recommend purchasing a good moisturizer to use along with this product. But not right before or right after, because I know from personal experience that this decreases the effect of the cream. If you put the Clindoxyl on at night, your skin may be flaky & dry in the morning. I find what works for me is to put it on right before I go to bed, then when I wake up in the morning, rinse my face and pat dry, then apply an OIL FREE face moisturizer. This keeps your face acne free, and flake free. :) My complaint with this product is that if you stop using it for a few nights, you get a few odd pimples here & there. And if you don't have insurance, it's EXTREMELY expensive. $55 CAD. Other than that... LOVE IT!

Best acne medication! You have to try it to believe it. Leave it in the fridge to prolong its shelf life.

honestly i dont know what to do.
i used to use the product for years and years and it was amazing for my 1-2 hormonal pimples
then my skin went crazy and i stopped using it
my skin calmed down and it was the odd whitehead around my mouth so i started using it again and it made me break out. i read elsewhere that benzoyl peroxide makes you breakout and to wait it out... its been just over 3 week and im not getting new break outs but im still dealing with the initial break outs that havent quite healed. anyone else in this boat and did it get better or should i discontinue use again? help!

This stuff is amazing! It really helps me get rid off my pimples which usually take forever to leave. It does kind of burn though but I guess that's how you know it's effective. I also wouldn't use this too much like everyday because it can dry out the skin. Only use on the spots you need to and ur good to go : )

This is one of the only things that has ever cleared up my acne.
I use this as well as Tetracycline (acne pills) since September, and my skin has never looked better. I used to have moderate acne, and now I have almost none. Well, I used to have none, but I recently became really lazy and stopped using this as well as the Tetracycline (hehe). I have an important event coming up, so in the middle of last month, I started all my stuff again. My skin started clearing up literally the next day, and I had a significant improvement 2 days later. Two days! If that's not a miracle, I don't know what is ;P
Even though it's really pricey (I think $65), it is completely and 100% worth it! I will continue to use this as long as I have acne, messed up teenager hormones! haha. Totally recommend.

I've been using Clindoxyl consistently for the past 3 years and it has made a huge difference to my skin.
When I started using Clindoxyl, I had suffered for the better part of a decade with mild-moderate acne on my cheeks and chin, and was finally motivated to talk to my doctor about my acne after I started experiencing occasional cystic pimples. My doctor highly recommended this product and said she prescribed it for her own teenage daughter who had great results. I had tried a gazillion OTC benzoyl peroxide creams in the past and was super dubious as to whether this one would work, but my doctor felt that since it contains an antibiotic (clindomycin) as well, it was worth a shot before trying oral antibiotics.
As my doctor warned me, it took about 6 weeks before my skin fully cleared up when I started using Clindoxyl. Since then, as long as I use it consistently (a generous dob smeared on my acne-prone areas once x day), it's very rare for me to get even a single blemish. If one does crop up, I find that it also works quite well as a spot treatment. I don't find the product at all irritating or drying.
The only negative I've experienced is that you really do have to be diligent about using the product consistently and correctly. If I get absentminded and miss a few days of using the product, a few angry little whiteheads quickly pop up to remind me of my laziness. Also, although my doctor said it should be fine to use the product well after the 120 days use-by date (she claims the active ingredients don't degrade that quickly) I unfortunately find that not to be the case. Whenever I have tried using the same tube past the expiration, without fail a few whiteheads start cropping up around the 130-day mark.
Also, given that you really do need to replace it every 120 days, the package is much too big. Even with daily use, I end up throwing out about 2/3 of the product in the tube when it expires. It would be nice if they could offer a smaller tube for a reduced price, especially given how expensive the product is for people who don't have insurance (thankfully, I do!).

This stuff changed my skin- I had a lot of pimples in my late teens and I used this every night and went on BCP and my skin cleared up so perfectly after 3 months, people would actually comment on how nice my skin was. i did find that if I stopped using it the pimples would come back. after a few years though I weaned myself of off using it and my skin is still nice but this stuff really turned my skin around. My parent's medical covered pretty much all of the cost, i think we paid like 4 dollars for it in the end and it lasts a long time ( i always used it way past the suggested expiry and it still worked just fine).

I've been using 5%BP before this so I guess that's y I found the results to be null. My skin is tough I guess that's y I never got the redness/peeling that my doc said to expect. Or maybe my skin's just immune to it as I use BP all the time. I didn't kno this is what she prescribed else I wud hv had her write a rx for something else stronger. It was 55CAN and I had to pay for this out of my pockets!!!!!! Won't repurchase. So potential users- If u use BP 5percent already, I suggest u ask ur doctor for something else.... Or u cud give it a shot if insurance pays for it.. O yea and I suffer from- deep under the layer of the skin pimples. Guess its not effective/strong enough to tackle that problem. Maybe normal pimple but nothing too deep

I HATE THIS PRODUCT IT BLEACHES SKIN AND CAUSES MORE ACNE!!!!!!!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Its a good cream but its only good if its being using temporarily. Don't rely on this cream too much... I fell in love with it for the first week, seeing all my imperfections have vanished...but they came back. My skin changed, it was now more dull, i still got a "few" zits/pimple even though I was using this every night. It contains benzoyl perioxide, which is a terrible chemical in long term effects! It has free radicals that ages your skin, and slows the process of its healing without it! I wouldn't recommend this, chemicals in general aren't the best option for your skin.. Ive been using this for about a year and a half, and im not satissfied with it, or the effects on my skin! Natural creams, remedies are probably best :)

I have been using this for one week as a spot treatment overnight. So far the current pimples I had when I started using it are almost gone; I would say about 75%. Which is pretty good considering I have reallyyyyy stubborn pimples; which don't respond to any sort of topical treatment. And trust me I have tried everything from sulfur, salicylic acid, OTC benzyl peroxide, tea tree oil (all the natural remedies etc), you know it I have tried it. So to be able to see and feel improvement as each day goes on is encouraging. I will update in another week! :)

I've suffered from acne for a while now and it wasn't until I started used this product with a couple other products that it finally cleared my face. I have used almost every product trying to get rid of my acne, it used to be pretty bad so here is my treatment to all of you.
First drink lots of water as well as eating fruits and vegetables always helps. along with that, wash your face regularly with a good face wash, I recommend Tersaseptic, it is amazing. with that use clindoxyl gel in the morning, and Retin- A Micro in the night. this treatment will dry your face, so I recommend using a good mosturizer like Improve. if you are thinking about a good birth control pill, Yasmin helped with my acne at the time, and ensured I always had a clear face. it was only until recently that i stopped the pill and started breaking out but i started my old treatment again and it is working great.
hope this helps!
