Acne is one of the common problems faced by women and each one of us have had come across this hurdle at least once in our life. I have suffered from acne during my college days; now, thankfully it is under control. But, I still suffer from acne scars and a few pimples here and there. I have tried a lot of products to get clear skin. After hearing a lot of good reviews about the Acne-treating products from La Roche Posay, I decided to try their Effaclar Anti-Acne Starter Kit, which contains two of their famous products for treating acne, excess oil secretion and acne scars.
La Roche-Posay, a French skincare company, has an Effaclar line of skin care products which is specially formulated to treat acne-prone skin. Many of the products in this line contain ingredients that help in treating a lot of acne related issues.

This kit contains two products; they are the Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel and the Effaclar Duo [+] cream. As this is a starter kit, the quantity of these products will last for about two weeks when used twice a day.

The Foaming Gel comes in a white tube with a blue flip cap. You have to squeeze the tube to dispense the product. The product does not have any colour and has a consistency in between liquid and gel. It has a mild and fresh fragrance.
I usually take a little amount of the gel, dampen my face and massage it gently. It lathers quite nicely. I leave it on the face for about a minute when I use this during the night time. It thoroughly cleanses the face, removing the dirt and grime without drying out the face. After I have used this, I see that the excessive oil secretion has reduced significantly.
