combination PIHAcneBlackheads+ 1
My favorite for years!

I can't tell through how many tubes i have gone, but i have been using this product since 2016. I get hormonal acne, my skin is very acne prone and those acne leave scars. This product has been helping me though all this years to keep this situation under control. It makes acne and smaller pimples heal faster than they would do on their own. I mean, it's not a miracle product, there's no such thing, i still have acne, comedones and a fee scars. But my skin is much better with this product than without it and i will definitely keep using it!

Less is more

I didn't usually get worse allergy with cosmetics but this product was made me learned the hard way. I applied to whole face. In the first day, it worked perfectly on my skin: reduced oily, cleared pore. But in the second day, I used more amount than usual then I felt itchy on my skin. I stopped using it in the third day, after washing my face and applying my normal moisturizer, my skin had redness, swelling and burning, This weird sensation continuing for 4 days. That was horrible. My recommendation is just use small amount on needed area.

Help Open Pore Not the Pimple

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.
