Love! The minute I feel imperfections buliding I use immediately. Have since passed it on to my teenage son to help with hormonal breakouts.

Say goodbye to your stubborn acne with this one. It is a bit drying so you’ll need a moisturiser after using it. Pimples clear out so fast when you use this one.

I absolutely love this product. Just finished my first bottle and will definitely be repurchasing. It has an amazing silky texture that leaves the skin oil free but still glowy.

Leighton (verified owner) - 3 years ago

Product Rating:

Very well formulated moisturiser, the added benefit of niacinamide is apparent especially with continuous use. The smell is off putting but overall a well rounded moisturiser.

Neirne (verified owner) - 3 years ago

Product Rating:

This is one of the best products I have ever used for my problematic skin. I have tried numerous other well-known brands that are also good, but none could compare to this product. I use Effaclar duo + as well the Effaclar Serum. The Effaclar Duo + leaves my skin moisturised but at the same time it has a mattifying effect. It is a great make-up base too. I found other products might have also worked well but none of them kept my skin moisturised and not feeling oily. I struggle with hormonal acne and have used both the products I mentioned for only a month now and my skin is much more clear, just a few spots left, but it is already a lot less aggressive and the remaining spots are small and hardly red at all.

Great product. After a week I can see a significant reduction in my breakout scars. Highly recommend!

Tayla (verified owner) - 4 years ago

Product Rating:

I was recommended this product after my chat with the Dermastore team. I’m prone to scaring and red blemishes around my chin from hormonal acne. This product has helped me significantly. My markings have gotten much less and it also seems to control potential break outs in that region too. You only need a very small amount, and it makes your face feel silky smooth. Super happy, much recommended!

Gabi (verified owner) - 4 years ago

Great product to combat hormonal acne! Using it as a spot treatment after trying so many products that did nothing except maybe dry out my skin. After using this for a very short time I can see what a difference it can make. Highly recommend!

Michelle (verified owner) - 4 years ago

Product Rating:

There are very few things in this world that blow my mind ,this is one of them!!!

This product is fantastic , i have very red, acne prone skin with a lot of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation, this product has evened out my skin the redness has cleared up as well as the random pimples i have.

the consistency is quite nice its light weight and absorbs really nicely into the skin , its perfect for oily skin because it doesn’t leave the skin feeling “heavy” or greasy.

after the application of this cream my face is instantly matte and is very soft to the touch.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT !!!

I’ve been struggling with cystic acne on my chin for a few months now. I started using this about two and a half weeks ago and can already see a massive difference. I only get the odd cyst now and then, my skin appears smoother and the size of my pores have reduced. Very happy with this product and will definitely purchase it again.

I bought this product originally for my face a couple of years ago when i was having a lot of problems with my face and neck due to cystic acne. Needless to say it did not help probably bc my problem was so severe i ended up using accutane for 6 mos. to rid myself of the problem. However, i kept this product as i do all my creams and lotions and i have found it works best on my knees! I do not get any sun on my legs unlike i use to and bc of this i have result bad discoloration (brown ness) on my knees. I started using this cream and my brown spots are disappearing!

Great product. Acne clearing and blackheads minimised. Be careful not to over apply, it can cause redness and dryness.
