Effaclar Acne Treatment System Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Effective Product & Multiple Benefits I have used this acne treatment product twice over 2-year period. Most recently (about 2-3 weeks ago) I needed to treat a few concerns on my oily/combination skin type which were discoloration, a few hormonal cystic acne bumps, a few regular acne bumps / blocked pores. What I have to say is that this product works as designed. Results are not immediate. I was able to see very good results in reduction of swelling, redness and inflammation in about 2-3 days, and with cystic acne pustules it took about 4-5 days to go away entirely. These results were achieved with daily use as directed (washing my face with cleanser, toning once every other day to avoid dryness, and using the spot treatment on ALL pimples every night) I was able to curb and get rid of the inflammation and cystic acne bumps (which are extremely painful to the touch and take a long time to go away / heal). YES the skin does dry out with this product. My oily/combo skin dried out very quickly when I used the toner every night, which I had to limit the use to once every other night, or only apply on spots with a q-tip that had swelling and inflammation which helped the healing process. Pores did shrink in my t-zone by about a third of their usual size in about 4 days time. Discoloration is also reducing gradually and is becoming less blochy or spotty red. The drying out face only lasts about 1-2 days for me. I have begun using a face balm after toning and before spot treatment to help not dry out my skin so much. Can't complain, it works great and price is awesome. Although this kit is for 2 month supply, it lasts me about 3-4 months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adult Acne Saver I never really struggled with acne growing up but as an adult I would have breakouts here and there but nothing crazy. Well that all changed and my face erupted. I ran to my local Ulta and picked this up and I am so thankful I did. Over the course of a week this got rid of my acne and no new acne showed up. I would give it 5 stars however, the cleanser is so viscous you have to be careful to close the lid and make sure it’s a tight close. I thought mine was but the lid was cracked and by the next morning this was all leaked out. I do store it upside down I just wish they had a stopper to prevent it from coming out so fast. Otherwise this is a winner of a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have for stubborn Acne So this is the first time in my entire life I have ever written a review on a product. This stuff is the holy grail of skin care. I have had stubborn forehead bumps/acne for years since starting college and have tried everything under the sun, to top of the line products, monthly facial, dermatologist prescribed products and this stuff cleared my skin in under a week!!!! I couldn’t believe it. If you are even considering buying I say DO IT. I love this stuff. I use it all once a day because it’s super drying so make sure you have a great moisturizer too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever I have used every product under the sun and this by far has the best results. I have super oily skin with many blemishes and after one week my pores are smaller my face is clearer and the oil is greatly reduced . I wish they would add the mat lotion in with the kit though. I will be re purchasing !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I’ve been trying this product for 2 weeks now and I’m really satisfied with the results so far. I had acne on my chin and thought I would never get rid of it but it’s going away! This acne treatment dries your skin a lot, so be careful with your eye bags and other sensitive zones of your face where your skin is thinner. Buy a good moisturizer to complement this treatment and you will love it! I’m happy with the results and can not wait to see how my face improves even more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a godsend I bought this 3 step system from Target and oh my god. I never write reviews but felt that I had to just because of how great this product is. I’ve been suffering from closed comedone acne for years. My skin looked good from a distance but once you’re up close in the sun, you can see allll these tiny bumps all over my forehead, cheeks and chin (especially visible when I have makeup on). I saw the good reviews for this system and it’s for a reason!! I used this system ONE time last night and woke up with all the bumps practically GONE. I can’t believe something I’ve been struggling with for years just magically vanished overnight. I’m completely ecstatic and I urge anyone that has the same issue as me to give this system a try. Just life changing. I can’t speak on its effectiveness on cystic acne, but this is amazing for those tiny under the skin acne bumps!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products!! Works so well for those who are acne prone as it reduces blemishes within 3 days. Aldo, for my girlies who are oily, it works so well with oily skin as it also reduces oils to the point where i now need a heavy duty moisturizer! Works so well!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My opinion I still have excessive scarring and blemishes. However the acne on my face has reduced in size considerably after 5 to 6 days of application

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cure to my acne! I NEVER leave reviews for anything but I have to for this. Nothing, not even medication from the dermatologist helped me as well as this acne kit has. My whiteheads are so rare now, when I used to get one at least everyday, now I only get one around that time of the month. I am so thankful for this product because my acne affected how I saw myself and now I feel so much more confident about wearing no makeup. I couldn’t recommend this product any more than I do!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PRODUCT I have combo skin and have developed adult acne, I tried SOO many different products and not one of them effectively cleared my skin. Within a week and a half of consistently using the skin clearing gel wash my face cleared up and is super healthy! Could not be more happy with the product and the pricing! Wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZINGLY FAST HEALING I have been having zonal acne and nothing I tried worked on it for the longest time. I would have acne stay for two weeks and new acnes popping up every day. I used this product twice in two days now and it worked wonders! Acne visibly much better! Redness is gone! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Bought this at Target after trying almost every product at Sephora and nothing helped with my acne. I would still break out on my chin and nose. This worked wonders, not even one pimple for the past 2 months! Buying more of this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hormonal acne . I had been using Clinique acne 3 step for years untill they changed the formula of the 3rd step . My face went crazy . I tried so many things over the counter finally went to a dermatologist , but after the copay and long wait plus another 80 for the meds I was still left with wet , bumpy itchy skin. I was waking up with white heads and by lunch more would pop out . I was recommended this by a friend of mine , I went out and decided to try it . WOW in one week I could See the difference . My skin was starting to get its glow back . My chin acne after two weeks is almost gone . I no longer wake to white heads and they don’t pop up over the course of my day. It is a bit drying but most acne products are . I do use the lotion they recommend it’s a bit pricey for the size but so far I like it . I’m am 37 yrs old so my acne is very adult and very hormonal . I love this product and think I will switch from Clinique all together as far as skin care .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed so far So I brought this system about a week ago. I am 43 and have suffered from oily skin, acne, and large pores since I was a teen. Now that I am older there are more blemishes that did not seem to go away no matter what I tried, also my pores are much more noticeable. Fast forward, I have been using this system for a week now and already noticing my blemishes lightening and diminishing, my pores less noticeable and my tzone less oily. My breakouts are also occurring less, less blackheads. Im very happy right now with this product. Now on the downside, it is really drying to the area on the sides of my nose, but I will be purchasing the moisturizer to see if it will combat that. I intend to give another review after a month of using these products. Thank you to the creators of Laroche-Posay products. No more makeup clogging my pores, making my skin worse. I am thinking of purchasing this product for my nephew who is entering High School and dealing with acne at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Wonders!! I have tried many acne products both expensive and drug store products, but nothing has worked like this! I've struggled wth acne since gradeschool but recently its been mostly hormonal along my chin line and nothing cleared it up until I started using the Effaclar system and it's been great on my sensitive skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got insanely red cheeks when started using I have tried a couple of products and i just tried this one. These first days my cheeks have turned really red, and i don't know if its normal and will disappear or its an allergic reaction to the products and i should stop using it. If maybe someone knows anything about this i would appreciate the help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good acne treatment. I had cystic acne when I was 15, had to take isotretinoin. Now with 25 the breakouts started again, specially in the chin area. I used a lot of products to stop the acne, but didn't seem to work. I have to say that even though it didn't stop the big breakouts on the chin, helped a lot on the rest of the face. Smoother skin, I had a lot of blackheads mostly on the nose and they are all gone. Pores look so much smaller, and no more breakouts on the forehead. RECOMMENDATION: use this treatment but also MOISTURIZE it's really really important. I always had oily skin and I felt that if I put a moisturizer I would make a greasy mess. When I started moisturizing every day after the face wash it's when I noticed the changes. I used effaclar matte (really good one) and then the sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product I had tried every single product to help my acne, but nothing had worked. I decided to try out this product because I only heard great things about it. I was hopeless because nothing helped and my acne was getting worse. I was embarrassed by it. This product saved my skin!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! I've literally tried everything for my acne both prescription and over the counter. Literally nothing has worked as well as this! Just washing my face one time with the cleanser made a huge difference in how my skin felt. My irritated burning blisters that were my acne were immediately soothed and the redness was reduced when I applied the cleanser to it for the first time. The toner really helps even out my skin as well. I had so many acne scars. After a few months of using these products my skin is virtually clear with no redness and no scars. I would have at least a dozen white heads at a time. Now, when I do get a pimple here or there it's only one white head that goes away either that day or within 2 days max which normally would last me like a week or 2. I dont really use the spot treatment very much unless I have a super stubborn pop up which is very rare. Anyways I highly recommend these products to anyone. Also I should note I have sensitive combination skin and this does not irritate it. I use the cleanser and toner once a day. I follow with the double moisturizer. I use a non medicated moisturizer in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hallejuah for Sensitive, Oily, Acne Prone Skin! I've been using this product for one week, and overall, I've noticed a positive difference! I have very sensitive, combination/oily, acne prone skin. I've struggled with all sorts of acne - constant blackheads and whiteheads on my nose and chin, hormonal acne, and cystic acne - for over twenty years. (Yes, this means I'm 40. :)) In addition, I live in Denver, Colorado, which is a naturally dry environment, and I have very hard water at my home. Within the past week, this product has soothed my sensitive skin, along with reducing my blackheads and whiteheads. I also noticed that I'm not as oily, and the areas where I consistently have hormonal breakouts and cystic acne are not are not as inflamed. I've paired this product with the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Anti-Aging Primer SPF 50, which provides just enough moisture throughout the day. I think I've found a keeper with the La Roche-Posay products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best treatment system on the market! The best overall treatment system by far on the market! It's perfect for for all ages, sensitive skin especially as it is non-drying, not-harsh, doesn't irritate or redden your skin, doesn't take much to be effective and is fast-acting. Can be used daily for a regular routine or as needed. Love this system and this product. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product!! AMAZING I thought I'd have to write a review considering how great this has worked for my skin. I had bad break-outs for a while and nothing else seemed to work, but after a week of using this stuff it got rid of almost everything! It works so well and I recommended it to people I work with and they love it as well! +10!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finding something that works!!! For years I struggled with trying to find something that would work well for my sensitive skin. I've tried well known brands everyone has heard of (i.e. clean n clear, neutrogena..) and found they didn't work well with my skin. I tried prestigious brand (i.e. proactive) for months and found my skin reacting poorly to the products they have. Now I am only saying that those products didn't work for me, they most certainly could work for others. I was told about La Roche-Posay from one of my dear friends who was stating how great these products were. I was skeptical at first, read more about what these products are and was finally sold into buying this kit to try it out for myself. Sold!! I've been using these products for a little over 2 years now and I've not once thought about switching to anything else. I spoke about how great La Roche-Posay is to many other friends and how amazing it's been seeing my skin clear up by using the three step system. I even got my brother, whose been using a particular product for nine years, switched over to La Roche-Posay just last year and he's more happier with his skin than he's ever been before. Honestly overall for me, I ultimately felt that I've finally found something that really works and my skin has never looked so clearer without blemishes before. I recommend to taking the time and trying out the products and seeing how it'll work for your skin. There are different ones that cater to the specifics of your skin, it's just finding the ones that'll work best for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a system that works!!!! I have been searching for a kit that will help with my oily acne prone skin. My face LOVES these products. I use it every night! The gel is fabulous, its cleans my skin without over drying it. The clarifying solution is wonderful. It removes any dirt that was left behind, doesnt make my skin feel tight or itch (like others have) The acne treatment is ok. All products are fragrance free which is a HUGE plus. A little product gooes a long way!!!
