Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries out skin I was really excited to try this product but I don’t think it suits my skin. It dries out my skin and gave me dry patches on the area I put it on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful - very potent and can burn I love most La Roche Posay products. I thought this was working the first day, but then I woke up with a red and angry face. I realized it was a rash on my face that feels like a burn. I am now 3 days post use and my face is still red, and now dry and peeling…I am trying to figure out what to put on it to help it hydrate and heal. I do not have sensitive skin, but this treatment is very potent, so be careful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy! the product BURNS your skin. it is way to potent and causes a reaction that looks worse than just having a pimple in the first place

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I was disappointed with the La Roche-Posay Acne Kit as it unfortunately didn't work for my skin. After using the product, I experienced severe irritation, painful sensations, itchiness, and redness. Despite following the instructions carefully, I didn't see any improvement in my acne, and my skin actually became worse. Based on my experience, I wouldn't recommend this product to others. If you have sensitive skin, I would exercise caution and consider alternative options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work well. I've found this pimple cream works well. I like that it's not overly creamy or rich. It's easy to apply, and easy to squeeze out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible burning feeling, DO NOT USE!!! My son got acne and decided to give the kit of this line product a try, he used today for the first time, his face is burning, in pain and super red, had to take 2 ibuprofen and a Tylenol and put ice pack on face, if it doesn’t get better by morning will have to take him to his doctor. Please do not use it. And to the makers, please revise ingredients and take it out of shelves! This is a dangerous product! I repeat dangerous product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I picked this up in an emergency situation and was SO glad I did. I am 28 and have had acne all my life and after a very stressful month my hormonal acne was getting so out of control I needed something stronger than my Acne.org BP. I decided to try this and my spots were noticeably smaller the next morning! I’ve kept it up every evening for 3 nights now and my pimples are basically gone. I also LOVE how a little goes a long way because the product is quite pricey but it absorbs so fast and it WORKS. It has only been a few days but so far I would definitely buy again!
