HG product for me. I’ve been using this for my acne and as a day moisturizer since about 2014, and I have definitely bought used up more than 15 tubes of this.

For me, it’s the perfect combination of just enough hydration for my oily skin without feeling heavy or clogging the skin, as well as absolutely fantastic for my form of acne. I have adult acne that ranges between mild to average …

A nice, light daytime moisturiser for slightly oily and acne-prone skin. It makes a good base for makeup.

I've been using this for about a year and it's a solid product - it's not a miracle cure, but in my experience it definitely helps if you have mild acne. I have noticed that Effaclar Duo helps prevent my major spots - they're smaller and less frequent since I …

I have slightly dry/acne prone/sensitive 23y/o skin and this product did not work for me at all...

I purchased because of a social media influencer who has similar skin to mine who had recommended to people who struggled with congested pores, I purchased both the original cream and the tinted one for days where I wanted some light coverage.

Upon applying the cream my skin feels …

I think that this isn't a bad moisturiser, it just didn't do anything for my acne when I had it. To be fair I did have fairly moderate hormonal acne so I can't really expect a moisturiser to get rid of it though. I loved the consistency, it's sorta like a gel, it's really refreshing and cooling! The packaging was ok, nothing to shout about. Overall I'd recommend this …Read more

I have had this for about a year and use as needed on spots or lumps. I think it is strong because it does sometimes show up slightly red in areas I have applied it, the next morning (if used overnight), and it does reduce some spots and breakouts by I'd say around 30%, but doesn't kill a spot or a lumpy area or breakout. I think there may be better products out there for that …Read more

This doesnt irritate my skin. Texture doesnt feel sticky or leaves a residue on your skin. On a larger scale i may have lesser pimples and my marks faded a little, but i have not really seen anything dramatic.

Update: have gone and repurchased another tube of this bcuz After using other serums, I think the effaclar duo is a very fuss free, simple reliable serum that maintains the skin …

I wrote a whole long review but deleted it. I don't have cystic acne like some people, but I would occasionally get some, plus infected whiteheads I messed with. So I hoped products like this would cut the infection rate. Basically I hated BP treatments since using Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing lotion. It made my skin taught, shiny, flakey and raw while I still had breakouts. It was a …Read more

I think this is a great SPOT treatment. I can't imagine using it all over my face, though.

If I feel a blemish coming on, I use this along with Persagel and it usually goes away. Not overnight, but it doesn't become a nightmare.

This combo DOES cause dryness. So, I would not use a lot. If you get scaliness. I'd slather on thick Aloe Vera gel and you should be …

Holy grail! I use the European version with salisylic acid, and this totally cleared my skin after it went haywire when I went on Levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. It helps keep my skin relatively oil free, works great under foundation. I used to use it morning and night, but noticed it works just as good if only used in the morning, and one tube has lasted me about 7 months now, just bought a …Read more
