Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dab on breakout I would dab this on my infrequent whiteheads. They would get zapped. Very effective to treat acne and prevent new ones from forming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment This product is a mixed bag for me. It helped reduce some old acne blemishes and get rid of some whiteheads. However, just applying a tiny amount to a pimple/spot causes redness to spread all around the area, often for days. Long story short: if you have sensitive skin, this product isn't for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was good but drying The product did its job, it was just very very drying which was to be expected but it was so bad to the point of my face peeling, like PEELING. My face couldn't handle it.
