Faceclin Acne Gel

Hello ladies, today I have got a easiest solution to all your pimple problems. I will review about medical gel called Faceclin. I have been using this for over a year now, and can’t thank it enough. So let’s get started with the wonder this product offers.
Faceclin Acne Gel
Product Description:

It is manufactured under the brand name of Abbott, which is a very well known pharmacy brand. This gel is composed of two primary ingredients- Cindamycin & Nicotinamide
Cindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic with primarily bacteriostatic action against Gram positive aerobes and wide range of anaerobic bacteria.
Niacin (nicotinic acid) is an essential B complex Vitamin (B3) whose deficiency results in the clinical syndrome known as pellagra. Niacinamide (Nicotinamide) is the physiologically active form of Niacin.
Ingredients: Cindamycin Phosphate BP, Nicotinamide IP. In Aloe, Allotoin base with ethyl lactate q.s

Faceclin Acne Gel (6)


Adults & children above 12 years.

I shall mention the form in which the manufacturer advises to apply this gel:

Apply a thin film of gel to the affected area, only after thoroughly washing the skin with soap. Enough gel should be used to cover the affected area (this is most important, dab sufficient amount of gel on the can) I will advise to leave it overnight and see the difference next morning.

Shelf life: 24 months

Caution: keep away from eyes and mouth or any other mucous membrane.

My Experience with Faceclin :

I came across this gel through my sister’s friend. A year back I had been fed of acne issues & this came as a rescuer for me and how *happydance* First let me tell you, I have combination- oily skin and in my mid twenties. This gel can be used for any skin type and age group above 12 years. I have not been prescribed to use it by any doctor, I have been using it over a year now and very satisfied with the results it offers. In case you need to be sure, please feel free to consult your doctor and then use it.

Faceclin Acne Gel (4)

This comes in a white tube packaging, with a toothpaste type look. The gel is absolutely clear and colorless. The tube is packed with I apply it at bed time, right after washing my face with face wash, I don’t use soap on my face. On application, I don’t feel any irritation or burning sensation. I apply sufficient amount on the unwanted pimples. That’s all, after this I simply do nothing and sleep. Next morning when I get up, I see magic, it reduces considerably. Let me tell you, I have used many cosmetic pimple reducers also, but none of them live up to their claim E.g. Garnier pure pen, and some product from Avon.

This is by far the best product to reduce and make acne disappear. I had a white head kind of big pimple right in the middle of my forehead, in between the two eyebrows. It was big and had puss too. I applied Faceclin 2 nights and it vanished. This gel is not only my favorite, but my siblings use it too. Including my teenaged brother, who has acne attack all throughout the year.

Did not work well for me!

3 5 1
I got this gel because it was raved a lot.. i used it everyday but i couldn't see any magic on my acne.. i wondered why i am i the unlucky one but i think it highly differs according to the different acne types.. my acne was definitely reducing in size but at a normal pace.. the results would have been the same even if i hadn't use this gel.. so i think i wont get another tube and stick to my acne free skin care for acne!

Miracle for acne prone skin

I bought this gel for my Bf as he has acne prone skin and end up buying for me too. I don’t have acne but has some uninvited impurities on skin. One of my colleague also suggested this gel to me and she has flawless skin. So there was many reason to buy this gel. The price is pretty decent and you need small amount which spread well. The blackhead on my nose fade away in just one application and bf’s acne has also reduced. It also make your skin soft and supple. I am so happy to get this gel and now I am addicted to it. 🙂 🙂

Nandini August 26, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Seems like a great product but I have a few questions..
Will it irritate sensitive skin? Does it help in getting rid of pimples filled with pus and redness? Does it lead to scarring by any chance?

Sorry for asking so many questions but I’m just fed up of buying products that don’t work on my pimples and realising I’ve wasted so much money.


khushi August 26, 2013 at 10:12 pm

my skin is not sensitive.
so not sure about that. kindly tk suggestion from a dermatologist.
n yes it helps in all kind of pimples, big/small/red/ puss filled *happydance* *happydance*
no it doesnt lead to any scars, infact it wil reduce ur scars. it totally lives up top its name *jai ho*


Smitha September 24, 2013 at 2:37 pm

Yes, this gel works for sensitive skin also. I have used this gel 3 years ago. I have a sensitive skin. A Dermatologist prescribed this for me. I was suffering from a pimples all over my face and after using this gel, my face has become clear. It works very fast.


Arshi Siddiqui August 26, 2013 at 8:14 pm

my dermatologist also prescribed me this.. iv been using it for the past five yrs! I totally love it!!


Astha August 26, 2013 at 8:47 pm

If I may add here, because a lot of Indian ladies read the blog, Clindamycin is a category B drug in pregnancy. So, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning pregnancy, I would suggest you consult a doctor or your dermatologist/gynae before using topical clindamycin preparations. Also, if you are suffering from IBD, which is fairly common in Indian population, again please consult your doctor. 🙂
And yes, otherwise this drug is really great and works miracles for some people with acne, but as a precaution, please consult a doctor before using this. 🙂


khushi August 26, 2013 at 10:14 pm

yes, y not one can always take advise from a reputed doctor. i have mentioned dat in the post 🙂
thanks for the valuable info 🙂

I got a big pimple on my face. It was there for about more than a week now. It was hard and red, I pressed it and all the puss came out and it started bleeding.. and then I put faceline on that pimple it has gone down now. Should I continue using it ? How long will it take to go away? I need to attend a function in 4 days will the reduces reduce? *scared*


Amrita August 11, 2016 at 8:10 am

I had a clear skin and out of the blue my mom forced me for gold facial to get a glowy skin.:-P
After the facial, I got pimples thought my face overnight.Tried all home treatments haldi , chandan nd what not . No one came for rescue

I rushed to a doctor nd got this cream , nd to my dismay overnight applications got 50 % of the pimples reduced 😀
