Reviews for Duac
For Acne "Great product. My daughter has been battling acne problems for years. When she was given the prescription for duac,, her face cleared and her confidence was boosted. Unfortunately when the doctor gave her another prescription the insurance would not pay for duac only the generic. Well, the generic didn't work, the product broke her face out. So, the next time she got the prescription I paid out of pocket, but $330 a box is too expensive. Unfortunately, over the last year her acne got worst. If you can get the product, it's totally worth it. Just wish the insurance wasn't so cheap. #coupon.."

For Acne "I love Duac! It completely helped clear up my acne last year alone! This was my most favourite acne treating product along side Quinoderm 10% which I can no longer get anywhere!! I rate Duac a 7/8 out of 10 as it was great but wasn't as good as Quinoderm 10%. I still use Duac every night before I go to bed. I do still have some spots /scars but comparing my face this year to how bad it was last year wow big change and I believe Duac has improved my skin so much. Sometimes makes my skin dry,red and sore but that's only if I apply too much. It's keeping my skin under control and I'm happy with that. I don't usually store Duac in the fridge. I'm hoping that eventually the spot phase been going all through my teen years will just disappear."

For Acne "I am currently using this and i had full force inch to inch acne on my face and now they have reduced and faded and I love it! I felt bad about my skin for two years and I know by next month after my treatment I will finally leave my house with confidence. Even going to the doctor sat in the waiting room before getting prescribed this I was self conscious but now I feel that DUAC has not only helped my skin, but my life too."

For Acne "ok I've never posted a review but just had to for this stuff, it has changed my life!!! I put up with hormonal acne for years. I went to my dr and asked for acne medication but as I was going to be ttc again soon he didn't want to give me oral medication but gave me the duac cream to try... It lasts 2 months, and honestly it cleared my acne up within 3-4 weeks... I saw improvements straight away... I still got the odd pimple in that time but my biggest fear was that I would stop the cream and they would all come back. Well I used it for the full 2 months and I'm sooooo happy to say I literally have not had another single pimple since I stopped using it and that was 2 months ago!! every time I feel my soft smooth face I just can't believe it"

For Acne "I have been using duac for around 6 months maybe a bit longer and although i have noticed a difference with my spots i really dislike the fact in makes my skin so dry. I would however recommend it to anyone suffering with acne who doesnt mind the dryness as it does appear to clear it up."

For Acne "Ive been using duac cream for 2 years now and honestly it's the best thing I've ever had. I didn't really have acne just dark patches on my face, and it has cleared them up so well better than other facial products. Only annoying thing is my face gets very dry, and went I put makeup on my face cracks, but I just over moisturise. Definatly recommend duac cream though, gave me so much more confidence"

For Acne "Well I'm 13 years old and have been using duac for 2 going into 3 years now and straight away I noticed a difference but after a while it seems as if it doesn't work as much but I carried on using it and now( 2 years later) my acne has cleared and the only thing I have to deal with is my acne scars! Great product and I highly recommend it!"

For Acne "After suffering for almost 20 years with severe acne and cystic acne. I have been on Duac for only 3 weeks and have seen the biggest change than with any other treatment I've tried. Almost all acne has gone, only cystic acne that will take longer due to being so far under the skin. It's amazing, I've not felt my skin this smooth since I was 9 years old. No new acne breakouts since being on this either. Which is amazing because I'd normally have one or two new ones every day.. LOVE this stuff"

For Acne "I'm 15 years old and I've been on this treatment for around about a year. Straight away when I started using it my skin totally cleared up within weeks. I stopped using the treatment for around about 2-3 weeks and I immediately noticed within a week of not using it my spots had came back. I couldn't get hold of the duac because there was a manufacturing problem but when I could get it again and I started using it my spots wouldn't go away. It took around 2 month to get clear skin the first time around but the second it took around 8 months. Another problem I've had with duac is about 2-4 times I've used the duac its burnt my face so I've had to rub it off and it tends do give me really flakey,dry, tight skin. Overall i think its really good"

For Acne "Im not one to review anything online but Duac has changed my skin completely, I had been suffering from acne since my early teens and now aged 24 was fed up and spoke to my Dr who suggested this product. my only regret is I hadn't gone earlier. My skin is now clear of acne and I feel much more confident even leaving the house without makeup something I wouldn't do previously. It does easily bleach sheets, pillows and towels though so be careful."

For Acne "I began using duac after treating what I thought was some kind of eczema on my face with every cream known to man, from steroid cream to sudocrem, nothing was getting rid. I then went to the doctors who said I had a form of acne on a small area of my face. I've only been using duac for 2 weeks and the difference is amazing. My skin isn't inflamed or pimply anymore. I can barely even notice redness, I think it will be gone completely in another week! I would highly recommend duac for anyone with skin problems! But don't be stupid like me, go to the doctors straight away!!"

For Acne "So far it's been a good experience... I've been dealing with skin issues for the past year but it wasn't until this past month when I had my IUD removed that I had a spike in hormones (which you can imagine made my skin go insane.) My dermatologist prescribed me Duac, Minocycline and Spinoloctane. I have yet to try the two other medications yet because I read reviews that there can be an initial breakout that is horrendous or it can clear up completely in 2 weeks. However, so far with the Duac my skin has cleared up existing acne but still not preventing new ones from forming. New ones aren't forming as fast as before (2-3) every day but now it's like 1 every 3 days. It's doing a great job. SUPER drying though. Moisturize!"

For Acne "I am 29 years old and a regular acne sufferer. I have comedones, blackheads, pimples which are not nice at all. So I went to visit a dermatologist just last Sep.2014 and she prescribed me Duac Gel to be use once daily at night after cleansing and been using it until now and it shows great improvement. One tube is good enough to be use for two months after opening and not that expensive. Just follow your doctor's instruction. My acne is mild to moderate and I recommend this one."

For Acne "I have had acne for most of my life. I remember first getting spots when I was 9 years old. I am 25 now. I always assumed I would grow out of it but that just never happened! Although my skin is by no means the worst you will ever see, I was uncomfortable with it. My nose was covered in tiny blackheads, where you could squeeze anywhere and pop loads of tiny spots. I have only been using Duac for about 5 days now and there is already a marked difference. The blackheads on my nose are almost all gone and the regular spots on my cheeks are much better already. My skin has been fine in terms of flaking. After the first day of using, when I washed my face in the bath loads of skin came off but other than that it is totally normal."

For Acne "I was given samples from my GP. Started to use it after the second night I notices a huge difference. My acne caused my polycystic ovarian syndrome symptoms (I don't have it only the symptoms) started to get smaller. The redness is slowly going & I've noticed one side has significantly reduced with acne. Using it on my pores and blackhead as well and they have shrunk. Only down side is it stains bed sheets but apart from that no negative review. Hoping this works permanently so I don't need to go on Roaacutane."

For Acne "I didn't have bad acne whatsoever it was just random spots which kept on coming & going and I just wanted rid! I was so embarrassed to take my makeup off Infront of my boyfriend & friends because I felt so ugly which resulted in me wearing more & more makeup everyday ( which probably didn't help my skin much more ) but once I got prescribed this by the doctors it was the best ever! Although it left me with dry skin it was so good, I felt fresher and the best part was that people started to notice I wasn't bothered about taking my makeup off! I'm a 19 year old girl and it's all about makeup & looking good nowadays and spots / acne is awful to have Hope this helps!!"

For Acne "I'm 15 and have been using this for just under a month. The first week it made my face really red, dry and itchy but I just used some moisturizer and hour after I put it on, or just put up with it. Now after a few weeks it does not burn or anything, pimples have cleared up so much! I have not even consistent in using it as it is the holidays but lately I have been and they are already clearing up! I have pimples all over my face, my forehead and temple have pretty much cleared, just waiting on the chin. Along with a good cleanser this stuff is amazing!"

For Acne "I had lots of comedones and just plain old acne. The creams my doctor prescribed were no longer working and I went to the dermatologist. He prescribed Duac in the morning and Retin-A 0.1% at night. He told me Duac kills current breakouts and prevents them. Within three days, my acne was already drying up and going away. My face was pretty dry and burned for the first week so it took a while to get used to the medicine. It's been about two months now and my skin is pimple free and now my acne scars/redness is still fading. I'm very happy with this medicine although it is quite pricey ($70 with insurance for me). Dermatologist also recommended the VaniCream gentle cleansing bar to wash my face with and it's great and gentle!"

For Acne "I always had clear skin, then when I turned 19 my skin broke out mostly all over my chin, so many tiny "under skin" bumps and then big cystic red acne that wouldn't develop a head and took a long time to heal, after three months of my skin (chin) being completely destroyed with acne, my doctor prescribed Duac. Within a week my skin was completely clear. I did have dryness, so I made sure I washed my face with a gentle soap and an exfoliating brush in the morning and moisturized, then did the same at night before applying only a pea sized amount of Duac to ONLY my chin, where most of my spots appeared! It works amazing, but I would ensure I moisturized A LOT with this product and only use the prescribed amount once a day."

For Acne "I was prescribed this cream by my doctor and its brilliant! I've seen a lot of comments saying that it burns and it made peoples faces itchy but not everyone has the same skin. Our skin will react in different ways. But I have to say after the 1st time of using it the blackheads on my nose got smaller. I would highly recommend this cream. However it does leave my skin a bit dry and flaky but on the instruction sheet it says you can use a perfume free moisturiser or stop using it for a couple of days."

For Acne "All I can say is wow! Fantastic product I've had acne for about 20 years I'm 34, and nothing worked for me and at my age and still spotty its very depressing, then my doctor told me about Duac. I used it for about a week and my face went a bit dry so I gave it a couple of days and started again and now my face is completely clear and my scars have faded! If you have got acne then this is amazing! I've never been so happy with my skin and I'm getting married soon and over the moon that my face will be clear for that. "
