All acne is not created equal. This makes perfect sense, seeing as how there are so many factors such as hygiene, hormones, and genetics that can both lead to and exacerbate your breakouts. Apart from being difficult to treat, these zits that crop up can often take a huge swing at our self-esteem and confidence too.

From pustules, papules, and cysts, there are various different types of acne that can pop up, but there’s one kind that’s particularly stubborn, persistent, and common: comedonal acne.

Pssst! Keep reading for our review on the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum!

What is comedonal acne?

la roche posay comedonal acne

Comedonal acne occurs when cells lining the ducts of the sebaceous gland (or oil gland) overgrow and lead to increased oil production. This can block the opening to the surface of the skin, resulting in bumpy comedonal acne. It can pop up in areas of the skin with the greatest number of sebaceous follicles, which is most commonly found in the T-zone, like your forehead and chin.

To deal with comedonal acne and stubborn facial bumps the gentle way, the brand created the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum, which is safe to use even on sensitive skin. To find out just how effective the serum is, Daily Vanity has invited 20 readers to give us their honest opinions about the product. Spoiler alert: the average verdict for the serum was a 4.35-star rating out of 5!

Before we dive into the reviews, let’s learn a little more about the Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum.

About La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is the first-ever retexturising anti-acne serum that’s formulated with Tri-Acid Complex. It strikes the perfect balance between exfoliating and soothing the skin as it unclogs pores and corrects persistent imperfections with continued use.

In a clinical study conducted by La Roche-Posay, 83% of reviewers saw smoother skin texture by the first morning and after 28 days, they saw a 45% reduction in acne and a 49% reduction in marks – stats we were incredibly impressed by. That’s most probably due to the efficacious blend of active ingredients in the Tri-Acid Complex.

Curious to know what’s in the concoction? Have a look at the three hero ingredients:

  • Glycolic acid (3.5%): Naturally synthesised by several sugar crops, glycolic acid is a gentle exfoliating acid that activates skin renewal for improved radiance and visible clarity. It’s effective at reducing acne marks too.
  • Salicylic acid (1.5%): Found in fruits and naturally synthesised by some plants, salicylic acid penetrates deeper into the skin to unclog pores and regulate excess sebum production.
  • Lipohydroxy acid (LHA) (0.45%): This ingredient is a salicylic acid derivative that gently exfoliates the skin’s surface and helps to eliminate dead skin cells.

To soothe your skin and strengthen its barrier, the serum is also infused with niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3) to reduce the appearance of pores and brighten dark spots. Of course, the formula also contains La Roche-Posay’s thermal water to calm redness and irritation, reducing overall discomfort.

Apply the serum on your face every morning and evening after your toner and before moisturiser. Don’t forget to slather on sunscreen during the day!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum retails for S$54.90 (30ml) at all major counters at Watsons, Guardian, and Unity. It is also available online at Shopee and Lazada. Find out more about the product here

What I like about the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is its packaging – it makes it easy to dispense the serum without contaminating the rest of the contents. The serum contains a lightweight and non-greasy texture, which I really love. I felt a bit of a tingling sensation when I first applied it on my face, but that sensation disappeared once I put on my moisturiser.

Results: 4/5

My skin looked more refined and felt smoother after using the serum for more than three days. I saw a reduction in the number of small pimples after the first use too. Now, I have fewer blemishes and small bumps to conceal, and that makes me feel happy and confident in my own skin.

I had minor acne breakouts but wearing a mask makes it worse, especially when I’m exercising and sweating in the mask. I’ve tried products that contain benzoyl peroxide and niacinamide. As I have sensitive skin, these acne treatments can sometimes be too harsh.

When I tried the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum for the first time, I noticed it has a slight cooling sensation and a lightweight texture that spread easily. It absorbed quickly and I could apply moisturiser on top of it easily.

Results: 4/5

After two weeks, the small acne bumps on my skin had gone down, but the larger ones remained. My skin felt smoother and looked more refined, so it was easier to apply makeup. Plus, my pimples looked calmer and less inflamed. My skin doesn’t feel dry the next morning too.

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, acne, acne scars

It gets annoying when people around me point out my acne. It makes me feel as if it isn’t normal to have blemishes. I’ve used benzoyl peroxide creams as well as an AHA and BHA-infused serum, but they didn’t help much. I still had recurring acne and I was left with red patches on blemish-prone areas.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum has a water-like consistency that was very easy to apply. Plus, it didn’t irritate my skin. My face felt softer and more supple from the first use.

Results: 5/5

After the first week, my skin was still purging from the active ingredients in the serum. And after two weeks, some acne scars had faded, and my pores were less visible on certain areas of my face. Overall, my skin looked smoother. It was also able to reduce the redness of my skin and acne scars.

Overall, I’m very happy about the results I saw after using this product for two weeks – it has delivered the fastest results I have seen so far. I will continue to use the serum to lighten the acne scars that have been bothering me for so long. My friends have also been complimenting my skin. Now, I only need a light touch of makeup to cover up most of the scars!

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads, acne

The texture of the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is really lightweight. However, it has a strong scent, which some people might not like. The serum absorbed into my skin quickly and left my skin feeling fresh. I could layer my moisturiser on top of it without any issues like pilling.

Results: 3.5/5

After two weeks, my skin appeared brighter and less congested. My sensitive skin wasn’t compromised either. My skin texture felt smoother and more refined, and my pimples look calmer too. I have even received compliments from family and friends on my skin after using this product.

I was a bit apprehensive to try this product because I have tried several others in the past with no luck. I must say, this serum seems to be doing its job and after about 2 weeks of using it, I do see promising results. I feel much more confident now that my acne is less inflamed and my pores are less congested.

I feel like it’s something people might judge me for my acne and I get self-conscious because of it. I’ve been using skincare since I was 16 and am still working towards better skin. When I break out, it feels discouraging – like all my efforts are not paying off.

So far, I’ve only used a blemish lotion and an acne cream. Because my skin is sensitive, I’ve always been a little hesitant to try out different kinds of products, which is why I’ve never ventured out much beyond the 2 products I’ve mentioned above. The products I’ve tried were either too harsh on my skin or not effective in the long run.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum has a simple and clean packaging, which I liked. The serum itself was great too! The light scent was pleasant and the texture of the serum was silky. It absorbed into my skin quickly and my skin felt hydrated and plump. I was able to layer my moisturiser and sunscreen over it without any issues.

Results: 4.5/5

After two weeks, the small bumps on my face seemed to have reduced in size and number! The pimples also didn’t stay on my face as long when I used this product regularly. However, my large, clogged pores remained the same.

Overall, it was a good experience. My sensitive skin did not react negatively to the serum and I enjoyed using the product daily. I would continue using this product. Hopefully, my skin will further improve and I’ll see smaller pores. The acne scars also have faded a little I actually use less concealer now!

Jia Li, 25

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Dull skin, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation/dark spots, textured skin, dehydration, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads, acne, acne scars

I would not leave the house without applying some concealer on my pimples and/or acne scars. When I get a new breakout, I feel more self-conscious, especially when I get those obvious, bumpy ones. I went on prescribed medications for a short period of time, but after I stopped, the acne would come back.

When I saw the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum for the first time, it looked very expensive and had a clinical feel, which seemed trustworthy. The serum has a slight fragrance, which honestly isn’t something I fancy in my skincare products, but I decided to trust it and proceed with the review.

From the first use, my skin looked slightly smoother and the serum absorbed quite fast. Compared to other blemish solutions that required a longer waiting time, I could apply my moisturiser on top of the serum right after. I couldn’t feel it sitting on top of my skin as well, which is a plus, especially with the hot weather and mask-wearing.

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, my skin definitely felt less congested and I experienced fewer breakouts. I’m pretty sure it’ll continue to help my existing acne. My skin also felt smoother and my skin looks slightly brighter.

I’m glad I got to try out this product. I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking for a more affordable and longer-lasting alternative to oral medication prescribed by dermatologists. I also don’t feel the need to apply concealer when I head out these days.

I used to use products with benzoyl peroxide when I get breakouts. However, they weren’t effective, so I stuck with a basic skincare routine to let my skin rest, hoping that the redness and bumps would go away.

La Roche-Posay is known for its products that are great for sensitive skin, and it’s a brand that my mum loves too! The packaging of the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is simple and sleek. The texture of the serum looked a little thick at first but it actually absorbed really well into the skin.

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, my skin looked and felt healthier. My skin became visibly less red and my blackheads and pores were not so obvious. My skin felt softer and smoother and did not clog up as much. The facial bumps on my skin were reduced too, and my pimples looked less inflamed.

This serum has worked very well for my skin type. In fact, it has worked better for me than other blemish treatments I’ve tried. I’ve also received compliments from family and friends on my skin after using this product.

Overall, I really enjoyed my experience with this serum. I highly recommend it to everyone, and it’s suitable for sensitive skin as well! I feel more confident now since my overall skin texture has improved so much.

When my skin breaks out, I always feel the need to conceal them and this puts my skin at risk of getting even more breakouts as makeup clogs my pores! I’ve tried acne gels that contains clindamycin phosphate, and while they were quite effective, the problem came back when I stop using them.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum has a light medicinal scent, but nothing too overpowering. The texture feels very lightweight and not drying at all. The serum absorbed very quickly into my skin and it almost felt like I didn’t apply it, but my skin felt smoother after.

Results: 4/5

After using the serum for two weeks, my skin looks more radiant overall, and my pore size has reduced. My acne was less inflamed than it usually is and the marks seemed to have lightened by a shade! The facial bumps on my skin were less visible and I didn’t break out as much as I used to as well. Plus, the serum didn’t leave my skin feeling dry throughout the day.

Overall, I love the fact that it is easy to use and hassle-free. A little goes a long way and my skin feels smooth and prepared for the next steps in my skincare and makeup routine.

It definitely lightened my scars and reduced my pores, so heading out with less makeup is no longer a concern for me. I used to conceal my blemishes whenever I worked out, but now, I don’t have to do so!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum jolyn

I’ve used products with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, as well as AHA and BHA. Those formulas were drying and I had to make sure my skin was well hydrated and moisturised after. Most blemish treatments were not effective after a while too.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum doesn’t have an overpowering smell and it absorbed pretty quickly, so it was easy to layer moisturiser on after too. Plus, it didn’t leave any residue on my skin.

Results: 4/5

After two weeks, my pores were less clogged and my skin texture looked more refined. On top of that, my blemishes look calmer and less red too. So far, I have not experienced any irritation from the product, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling or looking greasy throughout the day.

Overall, the results looked promising. It’s easy to add this serum into my current skincare routine as well, and I’ll continue to use it for better results. I feel happy that my pores look more refined and I feel more confident heading out with minimal makeup on.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum kaylee

I’ve tried acne patches, spot treatments, and acne facial washes. I like acne patches as they suck up all the sebum, but it only works for a certain type of pimple. Spot treatments can be drying and they make my skin flaky on the second or third day.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum looks simple and modern, and I like that it comes with a dropper. The scent is light and pleasant, and my skin felt hydrated and soft after using the serum. It also absorbs really fast.

Results: 4/5

After two weeks, the redness on my skin has reduced and I experience fewer flare-ups. My acne marks and pores appear less visible too. Plus, my skin looks less congested, and I didn’t get any irritation from the serum. Unlike other acne treatments, this is a lightweight serum that doesn’t dry out my skin.

I also like that it contains niacinamide, which can help to reduce bumps and smoothen skin, and I do not have to apply it separately. Clear skin definitely helps me feel more confident and I don’t have to pile on as much concealer. I’ll continue using it to see the full benefits.

Alyson, 29

Skin type: Combination-dry
Skin concerns: Dull skin, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation/dark spots, textured skin, dehydration, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads, acne, acne scars

I’ve tried a salicylic acid serum to help with my acne but found it very drying, so I had to combat that with hydrating products. I have also treated my blemishes with a Q-switch laser, but it’s quite expensive for me to keep going back to.

Results: 3/5

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is more watery than I expected, and it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. After two weeks, my blemishes have reduced significantly. However, my pores seem to appear more visible now, so perhaps it is not very compatible with my skin.

My pimples do look calmer and less inflamed, while my acne marks are less visible. I liked how quickly it worked and how non-greasy it is. Overall, it was a pleasant experience using this serum, and I do not need to cover up the acne scars as much now since the scars have lightened.

Tina, 29

Skin type: Combination-oily
Skin concerns: Hyperpigmentation/dark spots, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, acne

When my skin is breaking out, I tend to avoid meeting up with people. I’ve tried benzoyl peroxide creams and over-the-counter Japanese pimple creams in the past, but they aren’t always effective, and they don’t help to prevent acne scars.

Results: 4/5

When I first tried the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum, its lightweight texture absorbed quickly, but my skin felt a little dry after. After two weeks, my pores appeared smaller, but the serum did break my skin out, and my skin also felt a bit dehydrated and sensitive. However, I do feel slightly more confident now that my pores are not so prominent and visible.

Skin concerns: Dull skin, uneven skin tone, textured skin, acne scars

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum comes in a classy glass bottle with a stopper, which makes it very hygienic to use. Most of the products I have used are housed in plastic tubes or bottles.

When I used the serum for the first time, it absorbed really quickly into my skin! My skin is quite sensitive, so I was happy that it did not irritate my skin at all. I was shocked because I applied it on a recent acne scar and it lightened up the next morning. By the end of two weeks, I could still see the mark, but I could cover it lightly with very little concealer. I’m super impressed!

Results: 4.5/5

My skin felt smoother in general, and the best part is that it really reduced the marks on my face. I was sceptical about it at first, which is partly because of my sensitive skin. I tend to break out more during or before my period arrives, but it has reduced this time, and I think it’s because of this serum.

Now, I don’t have to feel self-conscious about the scars. Previously, my dermatologist told me that the scars would only fade in six months or more. But now, I think they’ll fade faster with this product! I would totally recommend this to those with acne scars and with sensitive skin like mine.

Clara, 31

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Dull skin, uneven skin tone, textured skin, dehydration, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads/whiteheads, acne, acne scars

Most of the acne treatments I’ve tried were very drying – one of them even caused inflammation and made my skin worse. With the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum, it felt lightweight and didn’t ball up when I applied my moisturiser on top of it.

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, my blemishes had reduced significantly. Plus, I didn’t experience any skin irritation. My facial bumps were less visible, and my pimples looked less inflamed.

The product has effectively helped to reduce my acne, and most importantly, it didn’t dry out my skin. I feel more confident and don’t have to conceal my blemishes with much makeup now.

Felicia, 31

Skin type: Oily
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads/whiteheads

I’ve tried acne treatments that were quite effective for a short period. Most of them were too expensive too. With the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum, it felt lightweight and non-sticky. My skin looked brighter and more radiant from the first use too!

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, the facial bumps on my skin had visibly reduced. My skin didn’t break out as much as it used to. Furthermore, my skin looked and felt much smoother, and I saw an overall boost in skin health.

Ren Yu, 31

Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, dehydration, visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads/whiteheads, acne, acne scars

Acne has definitely affected my self-esteem to the point where I didn’t dare to go to work bare-faced. I have to use makeup to conceal the occasional pimples and acne marks. When I visited a dermatologist, I was prescribed Roaccutane, which managed to reduce breakouts and oil production, but it really dried out my skin.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum smells great and comes with the dropper, which makes it very user-friendly. The serum absorbed into my skin very quickly and did not leave any sticky residue after. I could immediately proceed with my next step without having to wait for it to dry.

Results: 3.5/5

My forehead tends to get oily when I wake up in the morning but after putting on the serum, it feels smooth and not oily at all. After two weeks, I couldn’t really see the difference in terms of reduction in pore size, but it definitely gives me a little glow the next morning.

My skin feels softer and more supple, and my skin texture is smoother and more refined. The facial bumps on my skin were reduced, and my skin didn’t feel greasy throughout the day. I would suggest applying the serum directly to your face and spreading it out evenly. You should also avoid areas with cracked skin as it might irritate your skin.

Alicia, 32

Skin type: Combination-oily
Skin concerns: Visible/enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads/whiteheads

I’ve tried pimple patches and spot treatments, and while they do help to reduce my acne, they can leave my skin really dry. Some of these treatments are also quite expensive.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum has a lightweight texture that absorbed into my skin really fast, and I liked its refreshing scent. When I used it for the first time, my skin felt fresh and moisturised. It also didn’t feel heavy under my moisturiser.

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, I could see that my pores weren’t as visible. My skin felt more balanced and less greasy too. My skin felt softer, smoother, and more supple. The facial bumps on my skin were less visible too, and the serum calmed my pimples and inflammation. The acne marks and scars I had have since faded, and my skin seemed less congested.

I enjoyed using this product as it is really lightweight. I am very picky and dislike products that feel heavy on my skin. My makeup goes on much easier and looks less cakey too. With less visible pores and fewer breakouts, I can sometimes leave the house with just sunscreen on and no makeup.

I have large and unsightly bumps, which make me feel self-conscious. Sometimes, I’m glad we have to wear masks now so that I can cover them up. When I was younger, I was prescribed oral and topical medication from National Skin Centre, but the oral medication gave me gastric. I’ve also tried products with benzoyl peroxide and tea tree oil, but they were very drying.

The bottle of La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum is hygienic and has an easy-to-use dropper. The serum didn’t smell unpleasant, so it’s nice to use it daily. One drop goes a long way, and it absorbed fast without leaving a sticky residue.

Results: 5/5

After two weeks, the blemishes have reduced and my skin feels more supple. My acne marks were less visible too. Plus, I did not experience any irritation from the product. The serum didn’t dry my skin and it was easy to integrate it into my current skincare routine since it’s so lightweight and fuss-free to apply. I don’t need to use so much concealer now!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum tracy

Acne makes me feel unattractive and I feel self-conscious when people ask me why I have pimples around my jawline. I visited a dermatologist and was on isotretinoin for one year to minimise the oil production on my face, and it reduced my acne tremendously. I’ve also tried salicylic acid serums and tea tree oil, which do heal pimples but tend to dry out the skin.

What I noticed about the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum was how quickly it absorbed into my skin without leaving behind a sticky residue. I could layer on my moisturiser after without it feeling heavy on my skin.

Results: 4.5/5

Compared to other blemish treatments, this serum is definitely less drying! I usually break out around my jawline when it’s close to the time of the month, but surprisingly, I barely broke out when I was using this product. The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum really complements the rest of my skincare products, particularly my moisturiser.

My skin texture was smoother and more refined after using it, and I didn’t experience any irritation at all. It has worked very well for my skin type. Plus, my skin doesn’t feel dry throughout the day. Since I broke out less, I definitely felt more confident in my skin. In fact, I went out a couple of times without makeup!

I tried Oratane during my pubescent years, which did help me with my acne, but it kinda messed up my menstrual cycle. I had to stop and rely on topical products to help curb my acne problems. I used Differin and it worked for a while but it stopped being effective after using it for a long period.

Results: 4.5/5

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum seemed a little sticky at first, but it felt lightweight on my skin. After two weeks, the redness on my skin was significantly reduced! The facial bumps were less visible and my pimples looked less inflamed. I love how quickly it worked and it didn’t irritate my skin at all.

For a drugstore acne treatment, it really is effective! I have to wait a little longer to achieve good skin and go bare-faced, but I’m confident this serum will take me there soon.
