I began this regime about two years ago. I've tried every drugstore regime available, plus dermatologist creams/antibiotics. I was about to give up and request to go on Accutane when I decided to give one last acne regime a shot. La Roche Posay Effeclar changed my life. I stuck with it, and about five weeks later, there were no more break-outs on my face, and I literally have not have one cystic acne spot since (not even around that time of the month)." —Brianna Roehrs

    Promising review: "I had a terrible allergic reaction to tea tree oil about two weeks ago. Tiny bumps all over my face along with bunches of breakouts and my normally oily skin was so dry the strongest moisturizers I had wouldn’t keep it moisturized for long. I tried this stuff and OVERNIGHT basically all the bumps and my breakouts are gone. I have incredibly sensitive skin (clearly) and this stuff feels so soothing on my face and leaves it looking bright. I can’t speak more highly of this product. I will probably continue using it as a regular daily moisturizer even after my skin goes back to normal because it feels so smooth and I bet it would make a great base for makeup. HIGHLY recommend to anyone with sensitive, combination skin. And I’m acne prone and this stuff doesn’t break me out. Holy grail people!" —SH

At first, when I applied the primer, it did feel greasy on my skin, but after applying my makeup, my skin looked amazing. Not only did this primer minimize my pores. It also kept my oily skin at bay and helped my makeup last throughout the day. I can now say that I found a holy grail and this primer was definitely a product I will keep purchasing." —Pamela

I received this product initially as a sample in a beauty bag subscription, within a couple weeks it had my acne cleared and pores noticeably smaller. I looked to purchase and was very hesitant about the price so I ended up not purchasing and tried a different option.

    Promising review: "This is a holy grail. I have 4c low-porosity hair that is easily tangled and matted at anytime. I’m also tender headed so I dread wash days. I used this to detangle wet hair before my wash and during my conditioning process. I’m amazed! This cut my detangling sessions down from an hour and a half to 20 min.

    Promising review: "Holy grail of face masks! I have very sensitive skin and avoid moisturizers and masks until I tried First Aid Beauty. This mask will always be a part of my routine from now on. I don't use very much and use it in my p.m. routine. I wake up to soft glowing skin and it's well worth the price." —cstep

    Get it from Sephora for $32.
