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'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.

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.
