Q: Does the benzoyl peroxide ingredient in this product cause bleaching of fabrics, like sheets and towels?

submitted by BeautyCustomer - 3 years ago
  • A: YES. I've ruined a few (brand new) towels and pillowcases before I realized what was causing the bleach marks. Be careful to wash your hands thoroughly after applying this product. (Or maybe even apply with a Q-tip.) And maybe let the cream totally dry before putting on clothing or laying on a pillow.

    submitted byMatt - 2 years ago
  • A: I would like to know the answer to this question too. The Target Team Member who answered clearly didn't understand the question and did not provide a relevant, helpful answer.

    submitted byMaddie - 2 years ago

Q: Would this product be the same as my prescribed Benzoyl Peroxide? How does it differ?

submitted by A - 2 months ago
  • A: Hi there! Thanks for your interest in Effaclar Duo Acne Spot Treatment! This spot treatment for acne is formulated to reduce the number and severity of acne blemishes, pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. It provides fast and visible results in less than 3 days! We hope you give it a try!

Q: If I get this product on my clothes, sheets, or towels, will it bleach them out or cause the color to fade? I'm asking this again because the question was not directly answered the last time someone asked.

submitted by Maddie - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Maddie! Benzoyl peroxide may bleach fabrics. As a precaution, make sure Effaclar Duo is blended into skin thoroughly and wait for it to completely dry. Wash hands after application. Be mindful of your towels and bedding, white is preferred, as bleaching is more noticeable on colored fabrics. Hope this helps!

I have been struggling with white heads around my chin and forehead for the last few months. The product has cleared it up so much! I have only been using for a month but my white heads are disappearing and skin texture has improved dramatically.

Heard about Effaclar Duo on YouTube so I gave it a try and now I can't go without. I love how it has 5.5% benzoyl peroxide because the 10% I use to buy made my skin red. I have very sensitive skin and I have never had an issue with this. The LHA is just the right strength for me. Will continue to buy until my acne stops or they discontinue the product (please don't).

Love this for day one when there’s a head on a pimple but don’t like to use it after that point. I just use a little bit and I don’t go through the whole tube for a while so I would say it’s worth it

Magic

This product truly does what it advertises AND more. My skin has been going through it and experiencing hormonal acne. This clears everything up in a matter of days, and has been a saving grace to my skin. If you use this product to clear acne, remember that it’s still an active ingredient. I know it’s tempting to slap it on twice a day to clear the skin right up, but remember to be kind to your skin barrier. Irritating it may just make you break out more.

I absolutely love this product. I’ve had cystic acne for a couple of years and have struggled with it so badly, I incorporated this product into my skincare regimen and my cystic acne has completely gone away. If I feel a breakout coming, I put this on my breakout and the next morning it’s gone!!!

I loved this product, I would use it right as I felt a breakout coming in and would use at night time, by the morning I could definitely feel the breakout clearing up! It is drying so I would definitely moisturize with it

This is my go to when it comes to dealing with my acne. Absolutely love it! It was actually recommended by my dermatologist and only for people who need to deal with pimples and not cystic acne! It’s very gentle, doesn’t burn, doesn’t change the color of pillows and acts pretty fast! Honestly 100/10

I had these little bumps on my face for a while and couldn’t find a product to get them to disappear but I came across this product and I tried it out. After about a week I noticed most of my bumps had disappeared! I got lazy and stopped using it and then they came back so I’m starting to use it again and they’re going away again!!

This has been a magic to my acne spots and my skin problems. I’ve been using it for 15 days now and the results are superb. the process is slow but best. You won’t feel the results in first few days but after a week you’ll see how effective it is . Must try

This stuff is an absolute lifesaver when it comes to small bumps on the face! It is a little drying but I don’t mind it, plus I just put a little aquaphor on top of it. It gets rid of bumps sooo quickly. I love it!
