Product Overview

Product Overview

Cleanse sensitive and oily skin with this gel facial cleanser.

Acne and blemishes can irritate an already sensitive complexion, leaving it inflamed, itchy and tight. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Gel Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser is an extremely gentle face wash that purifies without disrupting acne-prone skin. The foaming formula reaches deep down into pores to remove makeup, dirt, oil and debris and unclog pores. The gel formula removes excess oil to prevent a shiny complexion. Because it is gentle, this gel facial cleanser will not leave skin feeling tight or irritated. Before you treat your blemishes, use this face wash to prepare the complexion. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar gel cleanser is free of irritating ingredients.

Unlike many acne cleansers, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Gel Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser is soap-free so it will not dry out the complexion or strip skin of its natural moisture. This product is also paraben-free, alcohol-free and oil-free so it is ideal for most skin types, especially oily. The advanced formula contains zinc to purify skin of excess oil and to help reduce inflammation. The foaming formula easily cleanses the complexion without the need for scrubbing and rubbing. Cleanse with this acne skin care product for clear pores and a healthy complexion.

Excellent

I bought this for my husband who has oily skin. (I have to confess that I just wanted him to quit using MY face cleanser and thought he needed his own!) He LOVES it! Glad he has his own regimen now :)

Up to Standard.

I had high expectations of this cleanser due to it positive reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The fragrance is light and different. And the the oil has seemed to diminish so the overall appearance of my skin has improved. I would highly recommend this cleanser!

Great for oily parts of the face

I am 70 years and still struggle with oily skin. I use this cleanser on my forehead and nose. It seems to be just right for overly oily areas. This is part of my twice daily routine.

Great for oily skin!

I've been using this product for 2 years now and I love it! It gets really foamy after you lather it up with some water. My skin feels very clean and not too dry after I rinse and dry.

Great Cleanser!

Never dries out my face, I haven't started breaking out since starting to use it over 12 weeks ago, takes off the oil & make-up quickly without having to use another makeup remover. I am so happy to have found this and will continue to use it in my routine.

Excellent product

This face wash thoroughly cleanses and helps with excess oil. It doesn’t dry out your skin like some acne face washes do. Quality product at a great price.

Nice, thick face wash with good quality pump

I was always buying the smaller pack, but this was better value for money, and the quality of the packaging is good. The pump works well although the liquid is quite thick. I like this face wash and have been using it for a while.

Only cleanser I use

I have oily sensitive allergic skin, and it's aging too (mid 40s). This is the only cleanser that addresses each of my needs. It tackles makeup, grime and oil with out stripping or sensitizing my skin, actually it helps to keep dermatitis and eczema flair ups on my face to a minimum.

Best Cleanser and gentle

This is great for any skin type. I have combination skin and use Retin A, and this cleanser is thorough yet gentle and does not over dry my skin. It is my new favorite,and I will reorder. I have the La Roche Purifying Cleanser and like it, but now prefer this one!

Great Cleanser

I am 40 with combo skin that is very reactive and sensitive. I like this cleanser a lot but haven’t decided if it’s my last attempt in finding the best cleanser that is affordable. It cleanses my skin well without stripping the moisture in my skin as my skin feels refreshed and clean but not dry when I’m ready for the next step, toner. I feel it is very gentle and when I feel I need a deeper clean like if I wore make up or got sweaty/oily, I use a mechanical brush. I use the Clinique. It may not be my last stop because other than a good cleanser it has not reduced my pores or anything it promised but it is way too soon in fairness. Will continue and see what happens.

Great cleanser

I've been using this for years, it is very gentle on my sensitive skin and eye areas. I use this for cleansing and then follow with a treated cleanser afterwards on my problem areas. Overall, I love the La Roche products.

more effective and gentler than any salicylic acid cleanser

I have combination skin and Effaclar cleanser is gentler on my skin than any salicylic acid cleanser I have tried, and it does a good job of keeping the oil on the oily parts of my face under control. I swap this with the Toleriane gel cleanser when my skin is dry.

Best & only face wash

Like most people with acne & sensitive skin, I have tried so many face washes. Nothing ever affected my acne. Someone told me to try this. I don't know how they do it, but ALL of their products are phenomenal. I have used this face wash for three years, and I no longer deal with daily breakouts. It doesn't make sense to me, but a lot of products with chemicals just seem to weaken my skin without helping any problem areas at all. This face wash is simple, very pure & very purifying. If I don't use it for a night, I break out. I hope they never change the formula because it is truly truly an elixir of health for any skin type! I just go to la roche-posay now for everything :)
