I've suffered from adult acne for most of my life and have continued to seek out the best products for my sensitive and combination skin. I've been using Effaclar for several months now, but I must say that within the first few days I could see remarkable results in the texture and quality of my skin. Acne is now a rarity and I cannot say enough about this product... it is amazing!!! Thank you God!

I am using this in conjunction with the Effaclar Pore Minimizing serum, and I am seeing less breakouts than ever. I used to have to examine my face in a certain light to find small bumps, and would push out at least 20 different spots per day. I had to keep on top of them because I had large pores, and they wouldn't turn into blackheads, they would just turn into larger bumps and eventually into cystic acne. I still have to look for them about once a week, but I can only find a few now per week versus multiple per day!
Gentle but effective

I use this astringent in the morning after washing with LaRoche Posay Effaclar Gel. It has a nice clean smell and is soothing on my skin and doesn't burn when applying. It also seems to make the mattifying moisturizer go on more smoothly and cling better. While I generally believe astringents aren't needed, this one has Salicylic Acid and keeps my breakouts at bay while not overdrying.
Best Astringent Ever!

This is by far the best astringent I have ever used. I breakout all the time, but after using this product for only a few weeks, my breakouts are fewer now and the blemishes heal much faster. It also does not sting or burn like some products and my face is never overly tight feeling. A great product!
