I tried this acne cream last night because i was having some breakouts on both sides of my face. It started burning my face about 3 hrs after the application.

Why spend $160 for this coforumulation when you can obtain generic topical formulations of each medication - clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide - in the same concentrations and amounts for less than $40?

I have been using this product for a couple of days now and so far no problem.I also use a retinol at night. For the reviewers that say that they experienced peeling, burning, severe cramps, it is stated in the paper that comes with the product.

Comment:
My 13 year old daughter's acne was getting worse. She was prescribed Duac along with Differin and within 3 weeks her skin is 100% acne free. It did burn in the beginning and her skin did dry out, however, we used Aveeno lotion and it stopped the dryness. I cannot believe how clear her face is; she has been using this combination since 03/2009.
