    I've used this for some time now, and it's been very effective in clearing up my acne. After I stopped using this for a week or so, my acne did return, but to a lesser degree, so I continue using it to this day - it only continues to work while you continue to use it, which won't be to everyone's liking, but I'd still recommend it.

    I had very bad acne for about a year and started using duac. After 2 months my skin completely cleared up I cannot recommend it enough. Every so often I still get a pimple or two, but compared to what it used it be like it’s a major improvement. I use it every night before bed and I love it, it’s made me so much more confident.

This stuff does burn the crap out of my face and it makes me super flakey and the first week I was itchy too but the symptoms gradually subside with continued use. With the itching and burning it was hard to continue using it but if you can get through the first week o ... Show Full Comment
