    Effaclar Medicated Acne Face Wash Product Reviews

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST CLEANSER OUT THERE I am 30 years old and y skin decided to act up - I got horomonal cystic acne for a few months. Tried everything on drugstores and nothing worked. went to see a derm and got some prescription and didn't really work either. My co-worker told me about thi brand and decided to buy the acne kit. This fixed my skin soooooo quick is unreal. This is my second bottle and I couldn't be happier... control my oily skin and cleans it super good. I have been on these products for 3 months and my skin is soft, my pores/skin looks better and have not had a breakout, just when it;s that time of the month... I will continue to use this brand forever!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will cure your acne! I never provide reviews but I will for this product. I have suffered from acne for years and tried countless products. I can't even begin to list out all the products I used. Nothing seemed to work. Two months ago, my breakouts were getting so terrible, I thought about seeking help from a dermatologist until I saw this product and decided to try it. Within a week, my acne was clearing up and now, I have such soft, clear skin. It is incredible, a true miracle. Please, for everyone who suffers from acne, use this along with the Duo cream, and you will see results. I understand the struggle we, acne sufferers, go through, which is why I hope you really try this product. Thank you for making this product, it has changed my life and restored my confidence.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible for sensitive skin I bought this from Ulta beauty and used it for about three days morning and night before my face started to get much worse. My face was bright red, my skin was pealing it was so dry, and I was also getting more acne than I had before. Instead of having a couple pimples, I had dozens of smaller little ones all over. I was embarrassed to even go outside, I tried to hide my face as much as possible. I could not even cover it with makeup either because it was so dry it would peel off and then be blotchy, red, and scaly. People kept asking what had happened to my face. Which was modifying BTW. It has never looked this terrible. It took my skin a month to get back to normal. This product really messed my skin up. I will never recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cleanser! I have been using this cleanser for years. I've tried others, always come back to this one. I have aging, sensitive/allergy/acne prone skin and this is the only cleanser that keeps my skin soft and clear. I remove my makeup/precleanse first, then follow up with this, and then use the corresponding toner. I use it year round in both freezing, dry winters and humid, sweltering summers, and it always keeps my skin balanced. Definitely recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face wash for adult acne prone skin! I bought this on a whim after having tried nearly every other face wash on the planet. I have had acne prone skin for as long as I can remember which has continued into adulthood. I also now have aging concerns. This face wash does not over dry but keeps my skin fresh and clean and generally acne free. I dont use many other products in my face other than this and light makeup. I wash morning and night with it. I dont think I will use anything but these products going forward. This same company makes the only sunscreen I can use on my face as well and it is also amazing. Just try it. You wont be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Acne System Out There I started with acne when I hit my late-20's and have been searching for years for the perfect skin care line. I've tried expensive department store brands, cheap drugstore brands, prescriptions, and everything in between. I've never found anything as good as the Effaclar Acne System and this MAT moisturizer. I used to be embarrassed just to walk to the mailbox without makeup... no more! If I do get a zit now, usually during that time of the month, it's dramatically reduced and almost gone the very next day. My skin looks better, feels smoother, and just plain feels clean. This cleanser, in particular, feels so light and foamy...you can tell it's really cleaning well. And my skin isn't left feeling tight and stripped afterward...just soft and smooth. Love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps Control Oily Skin & Breakouts I have struggled with sensitive skin and frequent breakouts since I was a teen. Never thought I'd still be dealing with these issues well into my 40's. I've tried many products that didn't work but thankfully, I recently discovered La Roche-Posay's EFFACLAR MEDICATED GEL ACNE CLEANSER. It does not irritate my skin and helps to control my frequent breakouts while also controlling my skin's excessive oil production. LOVE this product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't recommend more! My skin has always had issues that 'weren't bad enough for prescription medication' according to my dermatologist. I have tried topical treatments and spot treatments, you name it. This is THE ONLY thing I have seen results with. I bought the trio trial size kit and now just go with the full size ones because it just works so well for me. If you're thinking about trying it, get the kit because it works! It does dry you out if you use it a lot but there's also a lotion available in the same product line.
