Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: Duac is a great acne topical cream but it works better if you take oral acne medications has well. It takes a couple of weeks for skin to completely look better but stick with it. Use it once a day before going to bed and I normally cleanse with Aveeno clear complexion but Prascion as well if you ask your doctor. I have suffered with acne since I was 14 and now I'm twenty and minocycline with Duac saved my high school life.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: I had really bad acne. The pill takes about 3 weeks to kick in. The creams help a lot too! Although they do dry your skin out.. Just put some baby lotion on your face - works for back arms and chest as well.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: I have been using this cream for over a year now and my spots have cleared, do still get the occasional one now and then but that's normal. Duac cream has reduced the darkness of my blackhead as well. I have also been noticing my skin has been quite red, so I've laid of the cream for a while and just been using a scrub before bed to see. Overall I would recommend this to anyone, but there are side effects if you are allergic to some of the products in it. Ask your doctor for more information. Hope this helped.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: Have tried this for several months at a time, about a year apart. I'm 37 with 3 kids and more acne than when I was 15. It somewhat helps with NO drying, which is a nice change from most other topicals. BUT it totally bleaches out any fabrics your fingers or face come into contact with, even when I thought I was careful. My pillow cases are stained out from this, as are my towels. (Iits applied at night, hence the pillow). My bumpy face is smoother, but pimples still present, despite a thorough cleansing regimen with high-quality natural cleansers.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: This stuff is magical, it works really really well. Although my skin dried out and went red occasionally, this was solved with a bit of E45 moisturiser in the morning after my Duac at night. WARNING: DO NOT GET IN EYES OR ANY OTHER MUCUS MEMBRANES(lips, mouth etc.) I didn't take any notice and put it NEAR my eyes (just on the bags underneath the eye) and it dried out my eyes the next morning, having eye drops for 3 days. But, if the instructions are followed correctly, Duac is great.

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: The product is working so well for my athletic pre-teen daughter. As she began to get very involved with sports, a lot of sweat and acne came. Now, using Duac, her acne has cleared and is under control. Her face isn't so oily like before. She has a couple of blemishes, but nothing at all like before!
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: This really works. I used it for a week and my acne cleared but I found out using a bit to much will dry your face up and itch badly, but worth it, well for me. I was also given DIFFERIN with it, makes a good combination.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: My 14 year old son has been using this cream for 2 weeks now. At first didn't make any difference but his skin is really clearing up now, hang in there it does work!
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: This product is working pretty well for me right now, with the exception of one old bump it has cleared my face and arms up really well. I am very happy so far.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: I've been using this for almost 2 months now and it helped clear my face. It also regulates the skin's sebum production hence reducing oiliness. Side effects are peeling, redness, increased sun sensitivity, burning and itching. I recommend to first time users to put a very small amount to parts affected. Patience is the key. For a week or two your face will really adjust to it but it works. My face even has a pinkish glow to it now and I feel more confident.
Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: Duac changed my life. I had a great amount of acne and thanks to duac I don't have any acne. It took about 3 weeks to kick in and once it did I have not had acne since. It's been about 3 months since I started using it.

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin) for Acne: I used to use this cream before and never got any side effects so I came back on it and guess what? Got all the side effects possible. It is red and burning. Only came off for a few months. Anyone using this cream for the first time please do a skin test on your arm because putting it straight on your skin and having a reaction to it is really painful.
