Helps My Oil but Not My Pimple
Reviewed
Skin Type: dry Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I tried these product because i did stop taking ISOTRETINOIN (ACCUTANE) for 1 year (as my dermatologist prescribe). And i don't want to use ISTOTRETINOIN again, since i read many information about it. And i am using EFFACLAR ASTRINGENT one month already. And it reduce my oil, but not too much. I still have many pimples on my face. And the pimple moves everywhere. Sometimes when one is heal already and the other one is getting bigger. I will continue this product until few months to see the result. I'm using EFFACLAR DUO +, and EFFACLAR PURIFYING CLEANSING GEL. I am not sure about my pimples. Because sometimes it looks very bad, very big pimple with bacteria inside it (white thing inside the pimple). And i never have that pimple ever in my life. But i still thinking in possitive way, well maybe it part of the process. Some of my whiteheads now is getting better, and maybe because these product also open my pore.

A bit too drying
Reviewed
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Blackheads, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

Was using this toner as a part of my Effaclar routine for oily skin. It does a good job exfoliating my really oily T-Zone (using every other day), but made my cheeks very very dry. So you need to be really careful to not to overdry your skin, as it contains alcohol even if your skin is quite oily.
