Rated 2 out of 5 by from No good for me I used for one month but no works good on me . Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please be really careful if sensitive skin So I bought this set, for treating acne specifically in my forehead. I did the 3 steps, not just limited to my forehead but my whole face. Wow, my face immediately started BURNING, really really bad. I have very sensitive skin, and nowhere says NOT to pair with RETINOl humectant cream, immediately I washed my face with plain water. I would have run away from myself if I could, this was painful. But it wasn’t until few days after, that it was kind of sunny and even tho I wore sunscreen, my cheeks got super inflamed, red and burning. Deep inside my skin it hurts. It’s been 3 days now, I have applied aloe Vera NON-STOP every hour in my face. Still swollen. I wish this to nobody. Please be aware.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution for Sensitive Skin - Allergic Reaction Used Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment, experienced severe hives and chemical burn due to Isopropyl Alcohol allergy. Urging the company to include clear warnings. Sensitive skin users, beware. Recommending patch test before use. Low rating due to reaction severity. Buyer discretion advised.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PATCH TEST BEFORE USE I have used and LOVED so many La Roche Posay products, almost my entire skincare routine is made up of them. I was having a huge breakout of hormonal acne, which is not abnormal for me, and I decided to use this as a spot treatment on some of the worse areas as instructed on the box. I should have patch tested it first because I woke up the next morning and had a red angry rash only on the places where I used the spot treatment. It's been 48 hours and thankfully it's gone down quite a bit however it's still angry and red. I think it's an allergic reaction because a benadryl helped with the pain a little bit. Definitely do a patch test before using it or you could be red, itchy, and in a lot of pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bought this for my 12 year old granddaughter as she was just starting to get bumps on her forehead and a few acne spots on her chine. After just a couple treatments in the evening her skin is COMPLETELY clear. It’s a little pricey but well worth it! It just takes a very small amount so this tube should last her awhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this now! I’ve been using this product for about three months. It’s magic! Recently I’ve been breaking out with acne. Using this helps minimize the redness and growth. When I see new breakouts, I wash my face and use this product… and it prevents it from getting bigger, and instead it shrinks it! There isn’t a mark or anything. I know that sounds insane but it’s true! I cannot be without this! I’ve neverhad a product work as great as this.
