My claims over the product:

The Effaclar Duo(+) come in a very cute squeeze tube package with a nozzle type mouth for hygiene purpose. You need a very small quantity for your face. I have noticed that this cream is very light weight and has a mild smell which fades within few minutes of application. This cream does reduce dark spots upto certain extend. It unclogs the pores. This cream being easily absorbing , goes deep into the skin and fights acne. This also reduces the oil secretion, leaving a matte finish skin.

This cream can also be used as a primer for your daily foundation or bb cream routine. Its makes the foundation to  spread out evenly on your skin. It also makes your makeup last longer say about 5 to 6 hours.

I have experienced a mild irritation on my acne during spot treatments. This cream dries out the skin so dry skin people need quit a lot of moisturizer to prevent extreme dryness. For oily people  they don’t really need a moisturizer on top of it. It really prevents the occurrence of new acne and acne scars. But it doesn’t remove the old already existing dark spots completely. This cream works by peeling  off the big acne layer by layer leaving a baby soft skin. The same way it removes the scars also. Thus a good sunscreen is must if you are going out .

The most important fact is that this cream is paraben free. A good acne care with no extra harm to your skin. you can purchase this cream from and Nykaa. Nykaa also provides combo packs in this range.

Final Verdict:

The Effaclar Duo(+) is a very effective cream which works great on acne to reduce it within a week. This light weight gel based cream easily gets absorbed and starts showing difference within 3 days. I would highly recommend this for someone who is fighting with acne and acne marks. It’s a must have skin care routine.
