Reviews for Benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin

Sort by:

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I was prescribed this by the doctor. She never mentioned that it could make my skin raw, dry, flaky etc so when I read reviews, I was a bit afraid to use it. I didn't slather it on but put it on the spots directly (though it says it's not for that). I figured if they dried out, it wouldn't be too bad. I tried this and I thought it was really gentle. I had no red dry skin, the spots looked smaller...this made me think that maybe mine was out of date or hadn't been kept in the fridge before use like it says to do. Maybe I just have really resilient skin (as I have had acid peels). So for me, this was good. My skin isn't perfect but the big spots I used to get are a thing of the past and any new ones shrink quickly."

For Acne: "My 15 year old daughter has suffered from acne since she was 13 or so. It had gotten really bad this year mainly all over her forehead, leaving dark marks (we r African Americans). We tried home remedies & OTC stuff which just didn't seem to do anything. So, I decided to take her to see a dermatologist (4/28/2016) hoping for some type of antibiotics. Instead, she prescribed Benzoyl peroxide/clindamycin (1x day for the first 2 weeks then 2x day after), Neutrogena Ultra Gental wash & Aneeno 30 SPF moisturtizer. 5/16/2016, her face is so much better, no new acne & spots fading fast! Yes she has had some drying but we just make sure to exfoliate 2x week w/ sugar & raw honey mixture. Hardly any dark marks at all in just a 3 weeks!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I have been using Duac gel for 9 days now and my advice to anyone would be to persevere. I have very sensitive skin so was expecting some sort of reaction to the gel. After day 3 my skin was so red and sore. I moisturised throughout the day and this has really helped the patches of dry skin. On day 4 I only applied the gel for an hour and the next night didn't apply it to the worst area. Now on day 9 the redness has completely gone and my skin looks better than it has in years, I am so happy that I didn't give up on day 3 and that is mainly because of the reviews below. There is a chance that it will be painful that first week but don't give up! Will provide another review once I have used it for 2 months - can't wait to see the changes!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I get quite a few red spots only in my t zone, along with loads of little red bumps on my forehead. I've been using duac cream for about 5 days now and I have seen quite a good improvement, especially on my forehead. However, my skin is bright red and flaky that it almost looks worse. I don't have as many spots at all, but my whole face is red and constantly burning to the point where I cry. Yes it is good for spots, but for me it's not worth it."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "Had the worst experience with this gel. I'm not the type to suffer from side effects and I reacted badly to this. It burnt my skin and went red raw for at least 4/5 days. It was also very very dry. Having acne is horrible but this cream is not worth it."

For Acne: "I've been taking this for almost most a week. It kindve made my skin not look that bad, but after putting on the gel,moisturizer,and spf the mixture makes my face peel and it's annoying. I use it day and night. And my skin is even more drier than before I took this."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "Found this gel great. I was prescribed a cream to try first and it made my skin all dry and red so had I stop using it. Doc prescribed this gel next and my skin cleared up within about two weeks and had been fantastic ever since. No random blow out and under the skin lump spots. Had no side effects and the tube actually goes quite far."

For Acne: "Ok so I've always had clear skin until a few weeks ago when I broke out with a large amount of red dots all along me cheeks and forehead. I was prescribed this and I've only been using it for 1 day but my face is almost 100% better this medicine works wonders. It can be very drying to the skin so I suggest moisturizing before and then a few hours after applying I'm very IMPRESSED and exited to continue using this product"

For Acne: "I was on this less than a year ago and it really cleared up my face to the best it's ever been. My face became really smooth though, it was a bit drying. I stopped using it for a few months and broke out a lot, now I'm trying to use it again and it doesn't seem to be working."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I was given duac and told my skin would do slightly dry, red, patchy etc.. First few days - no effect, after day 3 my face went bright red, extremely dry and sore with an intense burning and tingling sensation. After stopping for a few days and having to sleep with Vaseline on my face, I finally got back to my spotty normal skin, no dry patches, redness etc.. After a few days off Duac, I decided to try it again. I used it religiously every night before bed.. and NO reactions!! No dryness, redness, or burning!! It has been 2 months of using Duac every night and all of my spots have gone down and stayed away!! Still no dryness, redness or burning again. My advice.. STICK AT IT. Maybe a few days rest here and there, but stick at it."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I've only been using Duac for 5 days but my skin is already so much clearer. I'm experiencing the dryness and peeling, but I can count the amount of new spots I've had since using it on one hand. Usually when I get up in the morning I can expect to see at least 3 new spots on various parts of my face, so it's a huge improvement for me. I was put on it because I obsessively pick at my skin (which is linked with my anxiety) and so, the more blemishes I have, the more I damage my face. So far, Duac is really helping me to leave my face alone and I hope it will continue this way. If anyone has a similar problem I would recommend at least giving it a try."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "This product started to work for me in about a week. I had problems with chin acne and it cleared up within two weeks. It did leave my skin dry and itchy so I used a moisturiser for my skin the next morning after applying the gel the night before. A very effective product I love it!"

Benzaclin (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I specifically asked for this prescription from my dermatologist due to all of the high ratings. I am very glad I did. I have been on Clindamycin solution for about three years and it has stopped being effective and that is why I switched to Benzaclin. It was helped my breakouts a lot and my skin is mostly clear with an occasional break out or two that go away in a couple of days. However, it is extremely drying the first 2-3 weeks. My skin was so dry I could literally feel my skin rubbing off in the shower. Also, avoid your eyes and your eyebrows. The skin around your eyes is way too sensitive for this product. Also, it lightly bleached some of my eyebrows. Nothing too bad, but I notice it. Overall, I would give it a chance."

Onexton (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "Onexton was my last resort before Accutane and I am SO glad my derm prescribed it to me. I had hormonal cysts that were painful and inflamed. I've been on Onexton for six months and now I have no acne at all. I feel like I tried everything and this was the only thing that worked for me. Your skin does need time to adjust to it because it's a powerful medication, so make sure you're only using a small amount at first. I like to mix mine with moisturizer and apply at the same time. Seriously has been a lifesaver."

Acanya (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: "I don't have bad acne but I get cystic acne on my chin from hormones that last weeks! This is the only cream that made my skin close to perfect after a few months I didn't know it was the cream until I ran out and my acne came back, I need to get a new bottle ASAP!"
