Description

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Adapalene Gel 0.1% is a prescription-strength retinoid acne treatment. This oil-free, fragrance-free acne treatment contains adapalene gel, a dermatologist recommended retinoid. Retinoids are recommended by dermatologists to help clear and prevent blackheads, whiteheads, clogged pores, and acne blemishes. This non-greasy, gel-like texture is quickly absorbed into skin. Dermatologist developed and tested. Suitable for children 12 years and up. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a doctor before use.
How to Apply: Use once daily. Clean the skin gently and pat dry before applying product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer. For example, if your acne is on the face, apply the product to the entire face. Do not use more than one time a day. Applying more than directed will not provide faster or better results, but may worsen skin irritation. During the early weeks of use, your acne may appear to worsen before it improves (this is normal); continue use as directed, unless you get irritation that becomes severe. Irritation is more likely to occur in the first few weeks of use or if using more than one topical acne medication at a time but irritation usually lessens with continued use of this product. Applying more than directed will not provide faster or better results. It may take up to 3 months of once daily use to see results. For further instructions, refer to the Drug Facts on the packaging

At first I expected for it to works instantly but I realized it takes times. You won’t see result in a day maybe 3-7 weeks. But this retold cream does works. Just use a little amount and it’ll help clear your acne scars, hormonal scare and any fresh acne you have. Be patience let the cream do it job and it’ll work. I would recommend a pint size but use it at your own convenience. Only use this products once a day.

I like this product. It is drying but more tolerable than other stronger retinoids. I lean toward this vs the differin version due to the price

Has helped clear up my severe acne better than anything I’ve ever tried. I have extremely sensitive skin and my skin tends to break out worse with the use of any products containing salicylic acid. It took only a few months of use to see a drastic change. I experienced most breakouts on my cheeks.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Everyone should do their own research, and know that this might not be for everyone, but for me this seems to be going pretty well. I use just a pea size amount after cleansing and drying my face, it quickly absorbs, and then I moisturize well. You can start with every other night, but this is a pretty easy to use concentration it seems, meaning your skin should be able to handle it if you’re a beginner. It is kind of silly that I’m asked to write a review when really it takes a few to 6 months to see more noticeable results. It’s a very good brand so I trust that it’s starting to help smooth out my skin.

I bought this mostly as an anti aging product. My acne is very mild but hormonal, however I was mostly concerned about adding a retinoid to my routine. This stuff works great! It’s basically Differin gel, but I much prefer this. It took roughly three months to see really visible results, but they were quite noticeable. The acne fighting properties are just a bonus, and it also works for that. I definitely recommend.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think this product helped with my breakouts. It’s hard to tell what would have happened if I didn’t use anything but I did see improvements in my skin after use. Most importantly, it didn’t dry out my skin. The packaging was nice and slim and easy to use.

Still Trying But So Far So Good!

4 out of 5 stars
- 3 months ago
originally posted on influenster.com
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so excited to receive this product to test for free along with a couple others from La Roche-Posay! My skin has been on a journey as my hormones have been all over the place, so I've had lots of acne to combat. I used to have a prescription adapalene product that I used to treat it, so I was excited and intrigued to see this product in very similar packaging and consistency. I'm still trying it out, but honestly, so far I can't really tell if it has done much to treat my acne. It gives me peace of mind when I apply it, because I know there are good ingredients in there, but as far as quick results, I really can't tell if it shortened the life of my acne or not. I wish I could, because I want to love all these products (and have some go tos when my face is breaking out 😅).

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First of all, it’s amazing be able to find an affordable OTC alternative treatment that actually works not only for acne. I started to use this one when decided introduce retinoids in my skincare routine and someone recommended this one for beginners. Overall this product changed my skin for the better. I didn’t have any problem with dryness on my face but I guess this goes for different types of skin. It’s better to start one a week and then progressing. I like to pair it with the Toleriane Ultra Soothing Care Face Moisturizer, for me it made the perfect pair.
