Duac Gel Reviews: Honest Testimonials From Our Customers

by Leanne Sinclair (BPharm)

Leanne is a clinical pharmacist with years of experience working in pharmacy.

If you’re suffering from acne and looking for an effective treatment, it can be hard to gauge which option is best. Duac gel sounds great, but what if there are drawbacks you’re missing? That’s why you need to see comments from real-world users talking about their results.

We know that it’s a fantastic topical acne treatment, but we want you to have as much information as possible before proceeding. Why not read about the experiences other people in your situation have had with it? It’ll give you a great idea of what to expect if you choose it.

On this page, we’ll run through the main takeaways from our customers’ Duac reviews, give you a dynamically-updated Duac gel review feed from Trustpilot, and point you to some supporting content to help you make a decision.


Our takeaways from Duac gel reviews

We’ve read through all the feedback our customers have given us about Duac gel, and we’ve come away with impressions that generally match what we expected:


  • It’s suitable for persistent adult acne, whether hormonal or stress-induced.
  • It works quickly. Customers have reported seeing great results within a few weeks.
  • It’s non-greasy and easy to apply.
  • It doesn’t have many side effects.
  • It avoids the need for oral medication.


  • It can initially dry out the skin and causes redness.
  • Each tube needs to be used within 28 days.

Overall, we’ve had multiple customers describe Duac gel as the most effective acne treatment they’ve ever tried. With great reviews across the board, and only minor side effects identified (visit our Duac gel side effects page to learn more), we’re confident in recommending this treatment to those suffering from moderate acne.
