An ideal choice for those concerned with red, raised acne blemishes and pimples.
Lipo-Hydroxy Acid: Also known as LHA, it's a derivative of salicylic acid, and has exfoliating and skin surface renewing properties.
Glycerin: Derived from vegetable sources, it's an excellent humectant. It helps hydrate skin by absorbing water from the surrounding environment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Acne Treatment Works dried up skin and smells odd. I wouldn’t recommend using it for a long period of time. I want something that clears and doesn’t dry my skin and smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from La roche-posay Love this for helping to get rid of my blackheads/whiteheads and any other acne that pops up. Super effective and doesn't dry my face out or anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miricle Product I have been struggling with white heads around my chin and forehead for the last few months. The product has cleared it up so much! I have only been using for a month but my white heads are disappearing and skin texture has improved dramatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this treatment Heard about Effaclar Duo on YouTube so I gave it a try and now I can't go without. I love how it has 5.5% benzoyl peroxide because the 10% I use to buy made my skin red. I have very sensitive skin and I have never had an issue with this. The LHA is just the right strength for me. Will continue to buy until my acne stops or they discontinue the product (please don't).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acne treatment Love this for day one when there’s a head on a pimple but don’t like to use it after that point. I just use a little bit and I don’t go through the whole tube for a while so I would say it’s worth it
