Effaclar duo (+) is better
Reviewed
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Blackheads, Dehydrated Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I didn't use this as an all over moisturiser, but rather as a spot treatment for stubborn pimples. That's because it has benzoyl peroxide which exacerbates aging. Proven by the fact that when I slathered it all over my forehead the texture of my skin (which is thin) there was... horrendous. It only improves after I stopped using this and switched to effaclar duo (+) which uses salicylic acid instead. This works very well on stubborn and inflammed clogs but the tradeoff is not worth it.

It's a really good moisturizer for the skin and somehow helped me prevent breakouts, but sadly it didn't erase my acne scars at all.
