Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does help! I bought this about 3 months ago, on and off I've been on different medications and skincare regimes. Instead of going back on antibiotics again I decided to switch up my regime. I've tried Pro-activ, Clarins, Lush, Freederm, and all sorts of others. I feel like this 3 step really helped my skin, with redness, spot size and reduction, oil and overall tone of skin! Most of all it improved my confidence! I don't usually write reviews but I have bought this set again and still love it! Lasted me longer than the 6 weeks and I use it once a day, along with a chemical exfoliant and 100% tea tree oil to target certain spots! Still have a few spots but it's definitely made a difference! Very happy with this product! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product rocks. I'm 37 and still suffer with oily,spot prone skin until now. I've tried everything, researching time and time again for the best products and always gone for sycillic based products that's promise to combat blackheads and oil. I have now realised these products were far too harsh and left me with combination, oil and servere dry patchey skin. Thankfully I have now found la Roche posey. I have been using it about a month now and it's really working for me. No more dry patches,no more spots,just clear smooth skin. I will definitely be buying these products again and on a plus side the price is very good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combination of products! I'm a french girl living in the Uk, so I'm sorry if my English is not perfect. I have been using those 3 products morning and night every day for like 2 months and my skin is a lot better! I have a bit of red spots and a lot of scarfs because of them and now my skin is more uniform and I have less spots. I'm also using the Hydraphase UV Light cream on the top of the Anti blemish cream because my skin is really dehydrated and now I feel that she is less dry and it's more confortable. The price of this products and and quality is amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely works for oily, acne prone skin! So worth it I was recommended this 3 step system a while ago but never really gave it a chance as you never know if these products are the right thing! I felt like I had tried nearly all the typical face washes and redness solutions aimed at acne-prone skin over the counter. After following the stages I began to notice a clear difference in my skin within around 3 weeks where the redness had noticably calmed down and I hadn't had an actual spot for weeks while using it! I still keep using the products just to maintane a good skin routine. I would highly recommend this anti-blemish system to anyone with oily/acne prone skin and stick with it! Even if it does take a few weeks to notice a difference you will start to feel much better about how it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally clear skin! I bought this 6 months ago and have since purchased all 3 products on a continual basis. I thought after my teenage years my spots would stop but sadly not. 20 years later and my skin still breaks out. That was until I discovered La Roche-Posay EFFACLAR 3 step Anti-Blemish! Finally something that works. To say it has changed my life sounds corny, but it really has! I can now go out of the house without make-up on. Something I would have never done for too many years! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Results so far! I got the Effaclar Trio set for Christmas and after having used it for just over 2 months now, I can definitely see an improvement! My skin has always been incredibly greasy and I suffer with intermittent acne. Initially I felt I didn’t see much change, but by the 6th week of regular use, my skin really has turned a corner! I was initially using the duo cream day and night but have now switched to using it just in the morning but continuing to use the wash and cleanser day and night. At night I now use an overnight serum...something my previously greasy skin could not cope with! Just placed my second order of the trio set as seems to be working really well for me! Very pleased as have tried so much in the past with no joy! Wedding in 2 weeks and skin looking better than ever! Thanks La Roche Posay! XxX
