Customer Reviews

Effaclar A.I. Breakout Corrector is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dries up really quickly When it comes to the acne treating, drying might be a good feature. But don't use it before your foundation, it will look terrible. Use it before sleeping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the price put you off! Although this product is pretty pricey, it's the only thing that's cleared up my troubled skin. I have always suffered with blemishes and I got to the point in January where I was so down and upset about them. I took the chance on this and now I cannot live without it. A little goes a long way and this tube has lasted me 6 months so it is good value for money. Don't let the price put you off, you really get results with this. I just wish I had brought it sooner

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the more affective products, clumps a bit After using within a few hours inflammations and blemishes subside and after continued use will disappear, most effective on new break outs. So as soon as you get one best to apply. I used it twice a day after washing my face. The only negative is that it tends to clump and you end up having to use a bit more, which isn't ideal when the tube is already so small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Works really well if you catch spots before properly appear, at the inflamed stage, not so well on whiteheads that have already formed. Quite drying under makeup, so I used only at night, but I'm definitely a fan and will be purchasing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! My teenagers had tried everything for their skin including antibiotics but nothing has worked as well as A.I . Used with the face wash and toner their skin looks great and no more worries about them taking antibiotics every day !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad temporary relief Reduces spots and redness throughout the day but has no real lasting effect. Cheaper high street brands work better. Disappointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed Have been using this for more than 2 months now, has made no difference to my spots if anything has irritated my skin.
