I use as a spot treatment, and love it! I have Combination-Dehydrated skin, and cleansers, toners & moisturisers for combo/oily skin & pimples dries out my skin too much. This is really great, I put it on zits when I start to feel them or see that bit of redness, and after a day or two it is reduced or gone! (I keep applying on spot for a couple of days, twice a day or so). Excellent to have on hand, and with only a small amount needed for spot treatments every now and then, the 30mls will last a while. Handbag staple.

After using this product for over 2 months I can positively say that it does as it says: calms down breakouts, prevents new ones and tighten pores. I find that using this product even if you have a clogged pore it doesn't become and infected pimple, it just remains a clogged pore until it is cleared - I clear pores using steam in mini facials. I think it smells fabulous and is great for sensitive skin. Its helps with oil during the summer making it a prefect seasonal moisturizer. Great price, I will definately be re-purchasing. Note that this will not be sufficient for dry skin, it is light and you will waste product trying to hydrate your skin with it, combo or oily skin is the best for this.

It works very well for me. I saw results immediately. After first application my skin changed, breakouts came down, pores were minimised. Just good stuff, I recommend.
UPDATE: I have about 7th package and love it. Doesn't made me dry, doesn't clog my pores, takes my acne under a control. Now I have at the most 2-3 pimples, or my face is completely clear.

I use it as a spot treatment.
Initially, i use it all over my face. I saw improvement in the first 3 days. Then nothing happened. I kept using and using but it nothing on my acne. So i was really dissapointed. But because i didn't want to waste on the product, i use it as a spot treatment. The pimple is gone in 1-3 days. It worked on blackhead, whitehead and when you feel pimple coming up.
So i like this product but i won't be repurchasing it. I will buy better spot treatment. The pimple was gone but it left a dark spot. hyperpigmentation..

I'm so disappointed that this didn't work for me. Each time I used it, I get breakouts after the second or third day. It definitely did not reduce the size of my pores or reduce blackheads.

I have been using this product for about a month and I have to say that it's pretty amazing for my skin. I started using it around the time I got the most awful and painful breakout I ever had, caused by OCM. My acne has never been severe and I'm rarely even subject to breakouts, so it was horrible. I'm pretty sure this product helped a lot with the clearing up, and now after a month that acne is almost gone. And I'm so glad because I though it would take months to go back to normal, and I just wanted to curl up and cry about how bad my skin looked. Even the scarring is not that bad and is clearing up pretty fast.
Overall, Effaclar K improved my skin tone and my newer clogged pores and blackheads cleared up in 2/3 weeks. The older ones are more stubborn. They've been there for years so it'll probably take some more time. It is helping those couple of dilated pores I have not to look so dilated, too. :) It did take a couple of weeks to start seeing results, but it was worth it.
I like it better than Effaclar Duo, since that tends to dry out my skin a bit too much. This one really doesn't. I'm not bothered by the smell either, it just takes a couple of days of getting used to. There are much worse smelling products out there. I'll come back and edit this when I have the chance to see all its effects on the whole of my face, once that nasty breakout has definitely cleared up.

Used it for only one night and immediately saw the results the next morning! I did not wake up to oily skin; the bumps on my face seem to have flattened over night; redness have disappeared. It is a wonderful product for how it can keep pimples at bay, and yet not dry out your skin!
When applied, it also has a slight tingling session which I feel really good about. I picture it to be zapping my zits overnight.
The only thing might be that it flakes a little.

i am very impressed with this cream. i use it on daily basis and it improved my acne scars (it takes time though), and it definitely kept me away from new acne. even though at first the ingredients did not seem very different from avene products for oily skin, the efficieny of this product was so clear to me. just dont forget to use a good amount of sunscreen over in sunny days (i actually love the avene's sunscreen of 30 spf for oily skin). i read some instructions which say it may dry the skin, but its not the case with me and i use it all over the face (except around eyes) and not only on affected areas. it includes Salicylic acid 1.5%, and LHA (sort of AHA). but to the contrary of other AHA product that i tried (ducray), this one doesnt leave a greasy texture, doesnt cause acne and its effcient as i already wrote.

I never had too many pimples, but the ones I had here and there when I was a teenager were leaving huge scars. So yea, I took Accutane for over a year and my skin was amazing. However, 10 years later, my problem is back. I just felt like crying.
As I live in China and I don't have access to good medical products, I started using some tea tree oil, which was good to control my oily skin. However, I have two recent dark spots that I tried to treat with tea tree oil and Avene diacneal. Both did not work to fade them, and I developed allergy to the Avene one.
I decided to buy Affaclar k to see if my dark spots and scars get some better. I've been using it for a week, and my dark spots caused by acne faded like 80%. I like the fact that it doesn't dry out my skin, I don't have breakouts and there is no peeling effect (at least until now). I used it twice a day, followed by my Redermic. So far, I am very happy with it. I was thinking of using it together with Effaclar Duo, but I felt no necessity.
These are very happy words coming from someone who used Accutane before.

This stuff is AMAZING!! I just turned 26 and my skin is changing and I'm suddenly getting zits like never before :/ I've been trying tons of acne products but since I have sensitive skin they all just made it worse, until I found this! I was using the Effaclar M for a while but I still had these really deep stubborn pimples that wouldn't go away! Since I've been using the Effaclar K all those pimples are finally coming to the surface and my skin looks a million times better. Seriously buy this stuff!
