Suffering with moderate acne until my mid 30s, I am no stranger to acne products. I had a few years reprieve, but a month after turning 40, I began breaking out with the worst breakouts I'd ever had. The pimples were large and painful, some deep and cystic, some filled with pus close to the surface. I was using a salicylic based cleanser, and Aveda exfoliant toner and Purifying mask, but my face was getting more and more sensitive with every treatment. In two days of washing with a La Roche cream cleanser and treating twice a day with Duo, the cysts are gone. The redness is gone. I have a few clogged pores left, they are not inflamed or painful at all, and they are shrinking. I have no dryness or sensitivity. I am floored. Salicylic acid creams don't touch my acne, and in the past, I have used budget friendly benzoyl peroxide products from time to time (think Stridex, etc.)But I have never had results like this. This product is worth the extra $. I cannot rave about it enough!

I used the product daily, at least 2-3x per day. The texture was smooth, non greasy and blended easy.
I noticed that I started to get an increase in break outs instead of less. I continued to use the cream in the hopes that this was normal, but I am still waiting. Sometimes I have to add a stronger product to help which costed 1/8th of the Roche Posay.

    I only use this on my nose for black heads. Seems to help a lot. Not sure if it works on acne because I use something else for my hormonal chin acne. But it helps with the black heads on my nose. I use only at night

        Comments about La Roche-Posay Dual Action Acne Treatment, .35 fl oz:

        My condition: Super oily skin with adult acne.

        I had a lot of clogged pores and bumps and blemishes on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I found that this acne tube is the key of this formula. I bought the starter kit at 29.99 and now I'm on the full size tube after finishing the one that came in the kit. After about a month or less, my forehead got completely clear, my cheek has got a lot clearer, but my chin is still struggling. There are still some stubborn bumps on my cheek but I'm happy with the result.

        I also have acne on my back but I never tried this product on it. The product that works really good on my back acne though is Murad acne supplement, so if you also have back acne, check that one out too.

        Apart from these products, I also stopped eating red meat and I think this helps too.

        Anyway, this product really works good for me, give it at least a moth and you should see improvement.

        Good luck!

        Good Luck!

        I'm very pleased with this. I'm 53 with oily skin and occassional breakouts. I use this once a day. Slightly drying, but so far it's kept me blemish free. Products with salicylic acid have not been effective for me in preventing breakouts. This one works.

            I've made this product a regular part of my regimen. I apply at night to any problem areas on my face and in the morning my (cystic) adult acne is considerably diminished or gone. There is no burning, peeling or strong odors I've encountered with other acne treatments. I highly recommend this product to anyone at the end of their acne ropes like I was...

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Dual Action Acne Treatment, .35 fl oz:

                I have acne all my life, from teens to my 30s currently. My skin clears up while I was taking birth control pills. When I get off of it, the acne flares up everywhere whenever and worse during the the winter months in MN. I've used a few Rx topical lotions and creams prescribed from my derm Dr but non really works effectively and satisfactorily. I'm very patient at giving products time to work and hoping to see results. But non from my experience have I've experience visible results in 4 days so far from using this product and line. Waking up the from the first night of application, many acne dried up and ready to flake away. Second morning, many whiteheads & blackheads are disappearing. Third morning, my skin is still pink and sensitive (which I'm used to from other previous products as well so I'm in no shock) from the application but no irritation whatsoever. Skin is noticably smooth, very few bumps. 4th morning, still pink but smoother skin with some skin flaking off. I'm currently on my 4th day as I'm writing this. It treats as described and it works very well for my skin so far. Love the result I'm seeing.

                  Comments about La Roche-Posay Dual Action Acne Treatment, .35 fl oz:

                  Simply the best non-prescription acne treatment I've found for my moderate acne prone, hormonal skin & enlarged pores.
                  For a month, my skin was very problematic & my entire chin was covered in painful cystic acne. I found out that the olive oil in an expensive cream I'd been using was the culprit. The effaclar duo cleared it all up within a few days. My skin stayed clear even during that time of the month!
                  I've been using it for 8 months, still on the first tube. I use the smallest amount as a spot treatment in my acne-prone areas (for me, everywhere but cheeks) mostly as preventive measure since I now rarely get any blemishes. It also doesn't dry me out.

                    Worked for me - had 4 large cyst's and multiple other breakouts and used this in combination with DiaMedic Ceravitae Serum for Ulcerated & Slow Healing Skin and my face cleared up quickly, didn't leave any scars, and has been preventing new stuff from popping up - haven't used it long but it worked fast!!
