A before and after image from the brand, which shows a significant reduction in dark spots over the course of 10 days. Amazon

I would describe my skin type as normal with a high tolerance for strong ingredients, so I was able to use this treatment twice a day without any negative side effects. After using it religiously for about three weeks, it became very noticeable that my skin had far fewer blackheads.

If I had to guess, I would say the blackheads on my nose (my biggest problem area) were reduced by about 1/2. And, with the help of other blackhead clearing products, I no longer consider blackheads a skin concern.

Cons khổng lồ consider

If you have sầu sensitive sầu skin, a product containing a high percentage of benzoyl peroxide (5.5%) may cause irritated, dry, or flaky skin. Using a hàng hóa containing a smaller dose can be a safer way to incorporate the svào ingredient inkhổng lồ your routine.

Affordable alternatives under $20

Depending on your skin type, you should take into lớn tài khoản the potency of benzoyl peroxide when adding the ingredient lớn your routine.

Paula"s Choice Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment containing 5% benzoyl peroxide ($19) is the most comparable sản phẩm to Effaclar Dual kích hoạt Acne Treatment. Paula"s Choice Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment ($18) contains 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, alongside soothing ingredients, making it a safer option for sensitive sầu skin.

A more potent option is Urban SkinRX"s Clear Complexion Acne Serum + Spot Treatment ($18.99). It"s formulated with 7.5% benzoyl peroxide, so it acts as a pretty strong spot treatment, but if you use it as a serum, you should start by gradually adding it to lớn your routine.

If you have sensitive skin, a cleanser containing benzoyl peroxide provides a gentle way to lớn introduce the ingredient into your routine. I recommover CeraVe Acne Foam Cream Cleanser ($14.99) with 4% benzoyl peroxide or Differin Daily Deep Facial Cleanser ($10.44) with 5% benzoyl peroxide.

Other ways lớn fight blackheads at home

Prior lớn finding Dual kích hoạt Treatment, using an extractor tool was one way I dealt with blackheads. Extracting blackheads at home is a very risky solution because it can cause skin damage, marks, & scars. I shouldn"t have been doing it. While it may be a tempting option or even a method you currently or use, it"s not something you should take into your own hands. It should only be done by a professional.

Use exfoliators:

Using a physically exfoliating facewash a few times a week will help lớn remove sầu dead skin cells và unclog pores.

I"ve sầu been using Dermalogica"s Daily Superfoliant ($59) for over a year. Just a bit of water turns the charcoal-infused powder inlớn a detoxifying, exfoliating cleanser.

A more affordable option, which I also use regularly và love, is MyCHELLE"s Refining Sugar Cleanser ($25). As you cleanse the sugar crystals dissolve sầu, providing you with an exfoliating start và a smooth finish.

Exfoliating masks can shed the lining of pores & promote cell turnover while brightening skin. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial 5% AHA + 2% BHA Mask ($88) is one of my favorites because it"s svào và effective sầu but has soothing ingredients including allantoin & aloe barbadensis leaf extract to lớn reduce the likelihood of irritation. The Ordinary"s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ($7.20) also contains a high percentage of acids but doesn"t contain calming ingredients so make sure khổng lồ vày a spot thử nghiệm to lớn be sure your skin can tolerate it.

Make sure you"ve sầu fully removed all makeup and grime before you go to sleep:

Removing makeup, SPF, dirt, and excess oil at the over of the day is crucial to preventing blackheads và breakouts. Face Halo"s ($22 for a mix of three) reusable makeup removing pads get the job done without the use of a cleanser. Just add water lớn the soft, fluffy pad và gently wipe skin. I was very skeptical this product would work sans cleanser but it really did the triông xã. Keep one in your purse, desk, or gym bag for easy, on-the-go makeup removal.

Wondergloss" Makeup Assasin and Oil Cleanser ($29) is a hydrating balm that really wowed me with its ability to melt away makeup, including extremely stubborn waterproof eyeliner and mascara.


La Roche-Posay

The bottom line

La Roche-Posay"s Effaclar Duo Dual kích hoạt Acne Treatment did a great job clearing my blackheads. It really impressed me with how well and how quickly it worked, but it was no surprise after learning how each ingredient addresses a different root cause of acne.

The formula is pretty svào, so if you have super sensitive skin, you may want to lớn opt for one of the lower-percentage products I mentioned above.
