Amazing!

Super gentle on the skin but just as effective with helping clear stubborn clogged pores! I love this, I use the effaclar toner throughout the week as well when I’m using the gentle moisturizing cleanser from LPR.

Best face wash

I’ve been using this cleanser for years. I have mild acne breakouts on occasion and this cleanser and the other effaclar products help keep my skin clear.

Careful...

I like this cleanser overall but be very careful when you even start to get near the eye area. It is incredibly drying and I've had dry spots on several occasions which makes me wonder if I should look for another cleanser.

My Go-To

I use La Roche exclusively for my skin regimen. I’m 50 and still have acne prone skin and this wash is the best for helping me keep my breakouts under control. I use it twice daily and it never dries me out or irritated me at all. Highly recommended.

It works!

I had been suffering from adult hormonal acne and was so surprised that within 2 weeks I saw a huge improvement in my skin. I've now been using this for over a year and have not had any breakouts! I also have psoriasis, rosacea, and very dry skin and this cleanser is gentle and non drying. Love this cleanser!

Good and effective.

I really like this product--it controls oily skin without drying effect. It also does not have that typical type of chemical scent which some products like "medicated" cleanser products often have. Finally, the price is right. Bottom line is this is a product definitely worth trying, I totally recommend.

Great Cleanser

I needed a cleanser with medication in it to help clear my blackheads around my chin and nose. The lather is really nice with tiny bubbles and I really enjoy the natural smell, like eucalyptus. Most of my blackheads extracted out within the first use without irritation. I took one star off because its really thin and the packaging makes it easy to waste product.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser

I love this face wash. It has definitely helped with my acne and blackheads. It's a creamy and foamy texture. No fragrance which is why I love La Roche-Posay. Only con is I wish this bottle had a pump like their other face cleansers bottles. The lid can get a little messy. But the product itself is amazing!

another great offering from la roche posay

just as good as the cream cleanser, but medicated. helps with breakouts. the bottle is huge considering you don't need a lot when you use it. just be careful because the product runs out of the bottle quickly, so keep it level or almost level to get it out. leaves your skin gorgeous, and with continued use, decreased breakouts. I keep it in the shower and even use it on my shoulders which can be problem areas for me.

Love it!

I love this SA face wash. My face feels really clean after I use it and I really think it helps with my acne. It doesn't dry out my face at all. It foams up sooo nicely. I will definitely continue to use it!

Great Cleanser

Years ago my teenage son had this recommended by his dermatologist. So when I began having some issues with adult whiteheads forming under my skin I wanted a gentle product with salicylic acid. This cleanser fits the bill! Worked like a charm and no more whiteheads. Gentle and non-drying. A great skin clearing/cleansing product.

Great cleanser, wish it didn't have menthol

I use this every night after double cleansing and it works great, even on my body. I just hope they'd remove the menthol because it's a bit irritating sometimes.

Impressive

This cleanser is a sweet treat for acne-prone skin peeps. Salicylic acid is best used in cleanser from, so I've been told, and I would always prefer La Roche-Posay products given their reputation. From my two weeks of use, this cleanser can be a little drying, so I am using it with a different moisturizer in the mornings, and Biossance rose oil + benzoyl peroxide treatment gel at night.

Great!

Great cleanser, the price is great and it is soothing for a salicylic cleanser. My oily skin feels very clean but not dehydrated or tight after using this. I will repurchase this cleanser.
