Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "I went to my dermatologist after suffering throughout my teenage years with acne. They prescribed me Duac gel. The first few days of using it my skin was fine, apart from a few red, patchy areas of skin. In my second week of using it I was in constant pain. My face was inflamed, swollen, incredibly dry and unbearably sore. I decided to stop using it and allowed my skin to recover from my traumatic ordeal, I had honestly never felt worse about myself. I then decided to give it another go, but this time using it for an hour a day, every other day. Once I felt my skin had acclimatised I did an hour every day. Now I can apply it over night without any redness or dryness. My skin has cleared up so much, but i recommend acclimatising your skin."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Had a cyst like spot thing on my chin that lasted for 3 years. Would come and go, always raising its ugly head. I got this cream from my GP, used it for one month and any recurring spots have not completely gone. Its been nearly a year and clear skin! Very very happy with the results. It does cause your skin to dry out when you use it and can be a little red but this goes down after a few days. Worth it for the end result."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "I went to the doctors about my acne and she prescribed me this gel. I used it on my face the first night I got it and it was fine, woke up with a few red patches but overall thought it worked well, applied it on the second night and I woke up to severe redness and itchiness on my face as well as big dry patches on my cheeks, chin and forehead. Turns out I had an allergic reaction to this gel which has left my sensitive skin unbearable to look at. It has caused my eyes to swell up and itching still persists."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "This gel is the best thing ever!!! Really works to get rid of spots both on the surface of the skin & underneath the skin. I suffer with breakouts especially during exam season & without duac I dread to think what my skin would be like. Works a dream! However, it is quite drying so I would reccomend using a moisturisor such as E45 to avoid dry flaky skin. Overall an amazing product :)"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "I'm 17 and have had acne since i was 11. Began using this about 6 months ago and the results were amazing, my skin cleared up almost completely with no side effects. Stopped using it recently and my spots have returned so I know it was definitely working!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "i am a 16 year old girl and I have mild-moderate acne in my t zone. When I first started using duac cream, the first couple weeks were awful. My skin was dry and flakey, it felt tight, and it was red raw. It was very painful when I applied the cream at night and was very hard to even get to sleep. Also, I couldn't cover up my acne with makeup because my skin was too dry! I was feeling really low and upset. But I thought I would carry on using it just incase i start to see an improvement. And Thankyou I did, after about the first 2 weeks my skin starting clearing up. My forehead especially, I had lots of little red pimples and the majority of them cleared as well as the rest of my face. It got a lot less dry and the redness faded."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Used duac years ago when I was a teenager with severe acne and now with mild acne as a 26 year old. Worked brilliantly both times. Skin started breaking out after my contraceptive implant was installed. Duac 5% was not available but 3% worked fine. I used along with bio oil and tea tree face wash. Did not experience any drying or flaking. Very pleased, I think it also levelled out my complexion by lightening the dark scars but that may be the bio-oil"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "I'm a 13 year old girl going through puberty and of course puberty brings a bunch of annoying problems, including acne. My acne is mild but a few have pus in them and I'd rather not have that. I've had spots for about 3 years now, (the first year only using drugs over the counter) and my spots wouldn't disappear after that first year. I went to see the doctor as I had started to get bacne (back acne). He prescribed Duac, once daily gel. I honestly think Duac is the best thing I've ever used on my skin. I personally didn't experience any dryness or pealing and I think that's because I put a thin layer over my face and washed my face every morning and night with a good acne-banishing facial wash (such as Vichy). Few days, no spots!!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "This product is AMAZING! I honestly saw a difference in once day, I have mild acne and a lot of under the skin spots on my forehead, on the cheek area I had huge pores and produced a lot of oil... My skin was a mess. After one day larger pimples reduced and my under the skin spots disappeared within a month! Unfortunately they have discontinued this product( I used the blue packaging one) the green packaging DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "This spot gel is amazing! It started working for me within 3 days. I had no side effects with this spot gel, I have oily skin and very big pores and that means I am spot prone. I went through a phase of acne and went to the doctor and got prescribed duac and I'm so glad that I was! It made my skin clear as day! I wouldn't recommend using it after it is two months old, as it doesn't seem to work as effectively after that amount of time but you can always get a new tube as it is usually used up in that time!"

Acanya (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Iv'e struggled with acne for years now.Once I started using Acanya, Ziana, and Solodyn, I can see a huge difference with my face . I had really bad acne and you could clearly tell it was there. I tried everything you could possibly think of and so far these products are the only ones that have been helpful. I would recommend seeing a dermatoligist if you have bad acne, they will most likely give you these products.Just wanted to share my experience, hope you find help with it."

Acanya (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Honestly, this medicine has been life changing for me. Before I used it, my acne was awful, mostly on my forehead but all around the rest of my face, too. My dermatologist prescribed it to me and within a month of using it my acne completely cleared up. Now three years later, I still use it and my face remains acne free!"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Before I started using duac, my skin was discusting! I had little bumps everywhere from my forehead to my cheeks and my chin. I hid behind my hair at school. Makeup made the bumps even worse and I also had them sore under skin huge bumps that took ages to go away. My skin was a nightmare. My dermatologist prescribed me this and I have been using it for more than 3 months, I love it! My skin has completely cleared up!! The only problem is that you can't take a break from it or else your acne will come shooting back. Trust me, I learned the hard way:( anyway besides that, I would recommend this to everyone!!! I am only 13 but this product has made me feel so much more beautiful and confident after dealing with acne on my face, chest and back."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "Very effective from the beginning! Although I came across a few side effects - redness, dryness, peeling of skin - this cream completely eliminated most of my acne. I particularly found it astonishing that over the space of a few months my Cysts had decreased - in size -dramatically. They'd shrink and leak until they vanish usually not leaving any scars, only marks - which will fade over a period of time. When my skin was feeling painful due to the side effects - stinging at night - I'd stop using duac for a couple of days and moisturise up. Once the side effects decreased slightly I'd go back on it. I took Duac along side the antibiotic erythromycin - however I didn't find that drug effective."

"I have started using this product along with Retin-A for my mild acne and started seeing results literally after one use. I have suffered with since the age of 10 (very early). It's always been pretty mild and has come and gone depending on the birth control I've used. I'm 28 now and the past few years my skin has been worsening. I am off birth control now. These two products have helped clear all the little bumps on my forehead and shoulders. My skin tone is evening out and I am having much fewer new pimples emerging. New and old acne are clearing much more quickly than before. So far, I'm very pleased with this combination. My skin has been a little dry, red, and peeling, but I have combated that with avocado oil used as a moisturizer."

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "For the first 3-4 days of use my face was so sore and skin was so dry.I have very sensitive skin anyway due to illness but really felt as tho i could have happily quite the treatment didn't matter how much moisturiser i put on it felt like if i smiled my face would crack.I carried on with the treatment every other day instead of the recommended every day till i felt i can tolerate it everyday.Nearly a month after starting the treatment and i feel it's the best thing i ever did to persevere through the first few weeks.My face is clear still a bit dry but nothing a good moisturiser helps"

Duac (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "This cream is amazing, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who struggles with acne. When I first went to the doctors about my acne they said to use this cream but it is very strong with antibiotics. I had spots all over my face when I first went and in about 4 days most of them went. If you get any issues then I suggest using a different type if acne cream like duracell."

Onexton (benzoyl peroxide / clindamycin): "My face was breaking out so badly that I didn't even want to look in the mirror, blAvk heads horrible cysts I tried using a homemade mixture for my face which did nothing. My doctor later prescribed onexton and ziana gel onexton in the morning ziana at night I had no idea that after applying the onexton and the ziana to moisturize my skin, So after two weeks of use my skin was red peeling n painful, so I decided to stop using it for a week and get m skin hydrated, than I went back to using the products, I've been using it for about 3 months now and it's cleared all the acne away and all the excess dead skin is gradually coming off. It takes time to see a major difference but I seen my difference within 1 1/2 months . I would recommend both."

"I've spent over 500 dollars on different face washes, acne toner, home remedies and nothing worked! I went into the doctor because my spots were causing me discomfort and after being diagnosed with mild acne I was given this gel! Started out on this product last night and having applied it once last night and twice today as prescribed I'm already noticing the swelling of the acne going down. I've noticed no more acne or spots appear! This product so far does make your face some what dry, and itchy, but I haven't experienced peeling! I'm definitely sticking this out, so far I'm impressed as its been the one thing to so far give me hope!"
