Would this work as an Epiduo alternative?
(0) Hearts

I used to use Epiduo for my acne and it worked really well. Epiduo has adalapene which is a retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide. I found a product by La Roche Posay called Effaclar Duo and it has Micro-exfoliating LHA (0.4%) and micronized Benzoyl Peroxide (5.5%). Would it kind of work the same about Epiduo? Or would it work better if I got someother retinol serum and a separate BP cream? I know Sephora doesn't carry La Roche Posay but this was the only place I knew where I could get good skincare advice! I get pustular/cystic acne. Also what's a good cleanser you would recommend? I don't want anything that will dry it out too much.

I get cystic hormonal acne and I've found Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel to work well for me.


I'm still on the hunt for an Epiduo alternative, though. Grrrr.

I'm glad for you if that works for you.  I don't know if the same percentage is in it.   Try Soy Fresh Face Cleasner.
