Skinoren and Finacea are different marketing names that Bayer uses in different countries, though Skinoren seems to be commonly associated with the 20% cream preparation of the product whereas Finacea seems to be commonly associated with the 15% gel preparation. In this review, Skinoren refers to the 20% cream, and Finacea refers to the 15% gel.

Back in October 2009, I wrote a review …

I read the glowing reviews and I was so excited to try this product, but unfortunately it didn’t work for me. I am very in tune with my skin and I usually watch out for reaction, but I ignored the signs in hopes this product would work. I have a lot of comedonal acne, redness, and dehydrated skin. I get a few papules, but nothing extreme. Once I started this product I started noticing quite a few …Read more

I’ve been using this for 8 months now and it has reached HG status.

I do not get cystic acne but little horrible bumps all over my face. I’ve tried a couple of Azelaic acid products in the past and nothing comes close to Finacea - Skinoren (fatty alcohols break me out) and Evologie (not even half as effective). It has done wonders in keeping my skin mostly clear (and has faded a lot of …

It didn't work any miracles or anything but I do feel like it definitely has helped my skin and I really like how easy it is to rub in and how quickly it absorbs. However, I will not be repurchasing because I got these as a sample and I don't want to pay for the real thing since it's so expensive.

I've been using Finacea for two months now, so figured it was time to do a review. My skin is annoyingly combination, dry on the cheeks, rosacea-prone, rosy (okay... red) and with mild acne. I was hoping to reduce some of my rosacea bumps.

Some top tips for using Finacea:
1. Start by applying a half-blueberry blog on alternate days, at night, mixed with lotion. Give your …

my skin changed dramatically a few years ago, bright red, swollen, bumpy, dry and oily at the same time. Was diagnosed with rosacea. Tried a bunch of things and nothing worked until I used finacea, morning and at night. Everything cleared up. It is pretty amazing. Have been repurchasing for a few years now, don't think I can really get by without it, the rosacea comes right back any time I …Read more

I love this stuff!! I wish I used it years ago instead of tazorac/ retin a. I got great results from tazorac in keeping my.pores clear as I have oily skin but I always had some peeling and dryness. I requested to my dr to switch me to finacea because I heard it's gentler and is good for pigmentation and it has antibacterial properties to help keep pores clear. Even though I used tazorac …Read more

This is the only cream that helps to clear my face from pimples or rashes . Calms the skin within 2-3 days, a bit drying so use some moisturizer on top.

I have never had acne in my life and I'm 50 years old, I was very blessed with flawless skin but about 4 months ago I started to get a little acne breakouts, so I tried almost everything on the market for adult acne, nothing seemed to help me at all. So lately it got worse and worse, I didn't want to go outside at all, so my daughter said that I should really see a doctor about the …Read more

Very expensive, but Azelaic acid acts in part by inhibiting the growth of acne-causing bacteria, such as Propionibacterium acnes. It also works on the cells that line hair follicles by changing the way they mature and proliferate, which decreases follicular ‘plugging’ and helps prevent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed acne lesions. In cases of hyper-pigmentation, azelaic acid appears to …Read more
