You know, I actually think this works. Granted, benzoyl peroxide works on my acne as well, but I can't use BP products as frequently as I would need to keep my hormonal adult acne in check, because it's just too drying. I end up actually preferring the acne to the red, itchy and flaking mess my skin becomes when I use BP more than occasionally. This I can use daily without drying out my skin, and it does seem to clear up my acne.Skin type: very combination, oily t-zone, normal to dry cheeks, dehydration issues, hormonal acne. I apply it in the evenings after cleansing with MAC Cleanse Off Oil + sometimes Cetaphil, a basic hydrating toner with glycerin and Eucerin 5% Urea moisturizer. I alternate with an exfoliating glycolic acid toner a few times a week, but that's too harsh for everyday use. I've been using this for a couple of weeks now, I'm in the week before my period and would normally have a lot of hormonal pimples plus a cyst or two forming on my chin and jawline, but I don't. It's clearing up and healing. I'm not completely clear, not sure I ever will be, but it looks better, and I feel like it actually prevents spots from forming, which is pretty fantastic.

I've repurchased this as it really made a difference on my skin! The salesperson recommended this I had many small bumps and was due to clogged pores. It does not show immediate results but the bumps on my cheeks, especially my forehead are now cleared! I use this with La Roche Posay's foaming cleanser which I find help maintain my skin from frequent breakouts.

This is the best product for acne, for real!!!!!I've had acne for like 7 years, it was a real struggle for me.When I lost some weight I also lost lots of pimples, thank god!! But the scars stayed and they really didn't fade or anything like that.I got a sample at a pharmacy and decided to give this a try. I was having a crazy breakout due to that time of the month. I applied it when I went to bed, and when I woke up, I noticed that my blemishes we're all gone!!!I immediately went and bought this. It costs around 12€ in Portugal.I've been using this for a long time, my acne scars are almost gone, my pores aren't very noticeable, my skin texture improved so much!!This is absolutely my holy grail... I've recomended this to almost everyone I know, because they have noticed such a huge diference on my skin!It also never dried my skin, or made it oily. At first, I wash my face with Cien's face wash for normal to combo skin. Then I apply thermal water by Avéne (it is quite better than the LRP one) and then I apply duo+!! Around 10-15 mins later I apply a moisturizer for oily skin -(or mat). I finish everything with more thermal water for no irritation on my skin.I started to see the best results 2 weeks later.10/10!!!!

This is a review for the duo-plus available in Europe. It's a wonderful product, works wonders on pimples that just want to appear, also does reduce the scars. Only thing that works on my adult acne.

DO NOT BUY this product if you want clearer skin!!! Before using this product I had a couple of small pimples and acne scars. After using this product for around a week my face was completely broken out in large cystic pimples, as well as the skin round my mouth becoming rough and discoloured, the worst breakout I have had yet!

I absolutely love this product. I was hesitant to buy it because of the price here in Australia but it is AMAZING. It has completely changed my face. I used to have quite bad acne on my cheeks and chin and since I've been using this (almost every day for approximately a year) my skin has calmed down a lot and it only breaks out occasionally, and only a couple of spots rather than a whole bunch. I would definitely recommend this for oily and break out prone skin.

I read somewhere either on their website or on an advertisement that this product was "the last acne product you will ever try"... And for me, it is. I don't want to jinx it, but this product has completely transformed my skin. I still get a few pimples occasionally, but nothing like before. At any given moment, I would have had a full jaw line of acne, now I can officially say that sometimes I go weeks without having a single blemish on my face. I use this in conjunction with LRP's Toleraine dermo-cleanser, which is a milky, soap-free, non-foaming cleanser. After washing my face, I apply the Effaclar Duo just on my problem areas, although the instructions actually say to apply it over the entire face. I don't, because I never breakout on my forehead and I thought it would be a waste of product to put any there. I moisturize also with an LRP hydrating moisturizer, but I'm constantly switching mostly out of curiosity. However, the LRP Hydreane light is my favourite so far. Also for the record, the Effaclar Duo that I have just contains salicylic acid, and I bought it at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. I've neither tried nor even seen the one that contains benzoyl peroxide, which is fine because I'm allergic to that ingredient anyway. I would recommend this product to anyone, and I sincerely hope it helps somebody who ends up reading this! xo

Skin: Very Oily, Medium, Neutral
I bought this product around five months ago after reading many good reviews about it. I have very oily skin and acne around my chin and jawline. At first, I used it by putting it all over my face, but that severely dried my skin out and made it flaky, so I instead just began applying it to my chin and jawline. At first, this cleared up my skin instantly. For about a week or two, I had no acne at all, but then I guess my skin adjusted to it and I didn't see a huge effect with this product. It definitely decreased the amount of acne I have, but I still had several pimples popping up in my problem areas fairly consistently. I think I bought this for $40, but it lasted nearly 6 months of twice daily use. Overall, I like the product and it did work, but it didn't wipe my acne out completely.

I have a cystic acne on my chin, jawline.I started using this product and ended up using the whole tube. I applied all over my face (combination to oily skin, with enlarged pores) only on evenings. So a tube lasted me almost 2 months. After I run out of it, I was slightly dissapointed as I was still getting some acne, but not in the rate as before.So I decided that this doesn't work for me and moved on to another moisturizer.This said! Within a week I started getting so much new blemishes and I ordered another bottle of this and started using this again.Yes, I do still 1-2 blemishes per week, but they are smaller. Effeclar Duo doesn't get rid of the problem completely, but it keeps the bigger/angry/more in count blemishes at bay, so this is def. a HG product for me. It's affordable, it does make my skin calmer and the blemishes go away quicker.It also combats the oiliness and generally my skin feels better, calmer and smoother.I will try to never run out of this again. Together with masks/serum/spot treatmets Effeclar Duo works even better. The acne scars are slowly, but visibly reduced as the redness around the new formed blemishes.Not a miracle product with quick results, but something to keep your eyes open for to manage cystic acne.

Helped a ton with my acne!!I wasn't able to find anything that would help until I found this. My skin got way way clearer very quickly after using this. I used this once a day for a week, my skin dried out a bunch but ALL my blemishes, I had 4 last week, are gone. I had to change to a heavier moisturizer to combat the dryness but this is 100% worth the money. 5/5, great product
