Only cream that worked so far
I'm almost thirty and always had acne since I was 14. After using Roacutane for 9 months my skin got much better. But I would still get pimples close to my period and other days for no certain reason. After that used the pill for 3 years, which kept my acne under control. After decided to stop, acne came back worst than before. My doctor prescribed Clyndoxyl gel for me and has been the only thing that certainly work for me (apart from a low sugar-flour-badfat diet, which is difficult for me to refuse in some special days). I don't use Clyndoxyl anymore simply because it's an antibiotic, and as such has its side effects. But I would certainly recommend. I'm looking nowadays for a more natural product that helps keeping my acne under control. Still searching though 😕

Works wonders
This product is truly a miracle cream. I suffer from hormonal acne and within a week of using this gel, my acne was almost 90% clear. What I love about is that I didn't experience an ib and it managed to clear the deep under the skin pimples that I had. What's rather unfortunate is that it's been discontinued in my country, South Africa; and no other acne medication works as effectively as clindoxyl gel for my skin.

Fabulous product
Unfortunately for my skin it wasn't enough, but generally I would highly recommend it for keeping infection under control and limiting breakouts. I used it daily for 16 months. It really stung and dried my skin to start with from the peroxide but geez it cleared up my skin quickly

Works Great!
It took about 5-6 months for Clindoxyl to start working, but after this initial period, it has been working wonders! I started the cream at the end of October, and by March by skin was absolutely perfect. During the first month or two, my skin was so irritated and super dry and red, but don't give up! You have to wait through that period and stick with it, because it'll be worth it. I used to have horrible acne on my chin and around my mouth, and I haven't had a pimple in months. Not even one. You can even skip a day or two of Clindoxyl and you'll still be fine. I suffer from food intolerance, and my skin was always super sensitive to food/alcohol, sweat, etc. but now it no longer is. I use this cream in the morning, paired with Differin cream in the evening (both prescriptions), and the combination is awesome. It makes my face feel a little bit dry, and it makes my skin a bit oilier, but nothing some moisturizer and powder can't fix. Would totally recommend! Don't give up if your skin isn't great in the first few months.

stopped working
it works for a while.. but just when your skin gets good, it loses its effectiveness. It worked for a while with me, then just stopped.

Worked great at first, lost effect after 1 year
This gel cleared up my acne very quickly. The acne did not completely disappear though. It didn't help with redness or scarring. After 1 year, it became completely ineffective on my skin and my acne resumed. This would be a good treatment for someone who needs a short term fix for mild/moderate acne.

Love it!!
I've been taking Clindoxyl Gel for maybe a year now (Clindoxyl Clindamycin (1%) and Benzoyl Peroxide (5%)) and it has truly worked wonders for me (I am 22 and started taking it at 21.) I have not had any skin irritation problems and the acne along the sides of my face is practically completely eliminated. If I ever get some zits there, it's during that time of month. While the Clindoxyl Gel didn't get rid of the acne along my jawline and underneath it, it helped a lot to control it and keep it to a pretty good minimum. I started taking Vitex a couple of months ago and that has helped a lot with the acne along my jawline and under it. I started taking Clindoxyl Gel because it worked so well for my friend (female, same age as me.)
