Faceclin® gel is manufactured by reputable Abbott. It is a 2-way solution which contains two potent acne-fighting components:

Clindamycin phosphate 1% – is a topical antibiotic approved for the treatment of acne vulgaris. This component belongs to the class of antibiotics known as lincosamides. By inhibiting bacteria protein synthesis at the ribosomal level (the site of protein synthesis), clindamycin is killing bacteria associated with acne.

Niacinamide 4% – aka nicotinamide has anti-inflammatory properties, which may be used for the treatment of bullous, skin blistering. It may improve acne by its anti-inflammatory action and by reducing sebum production, moisturizing capabilities.

Description

What is Faceclin® gel

Faceclin® gel contains Nicotinamide and Clindamycin powerful components to fight acne, moisturizing and renewing the skin cells.

Nicotinamide 4% in a Faceclin composition also known as niacinamide or nicotinic acid amide, is the water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3. Niacinamide gel is a fairly new treatment for acne, researches showed it to be at least as effective(or better) than the leading topical acne treatment component Clindamycin, which is quite popular among dermatologists. On the plus side, it just works, your skin does not develop resistance to it as it’s just a vitamin which directly targets inflammation (it does not kill acne bacteria) in other words, it targets the problem at an earlier stage compared to antibacterial compounds, it works even better for several types of skin than Benzoyl Peroxide or any other traditional acne treatment solution.

The chain reaction that takes place looks like this: overactive sebaceous glands→overproduction of sebum(oily substance produced by our skin)→acne bacteria’s overgrowth on skin→skin irritation→skin inflammation→overgrown acne bacteria colonizes the inflamed hair follicle thus→immune system responds by sending white blood cells to the site of injury (your hair follicle) which results in a pus-filled inflamed zit. This is how acne develops. If we’re going to stop acne (and clear skin), we have to break this chain, we have to break as many components of this chain as possible.

Niacinamide is different than other acne medications because it treats the inflamed skin directly and without inflammation acne simply cannot exist, what we call “acne” is actually an inflamed hair follicle in the skin, the skin gets inflamed because of the overgrowth of acne bacteria.

  • It is anti-inflammatory.
  • Reduces sebum production.
  • Improves skin barrier function through decreasing water loss through the epidermis (the outer skin layer) thus increasing skin hydration.
  • Helps fade acne scars and repair damaged skin.
  • In multiple clinical studies, topical nicotinamide improved fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness, and skin sallowness (yellowing) as well as elasticity. One study showed nicotinamide to increase the skin’s production of ceramides, which are natural emollients and skin protectants, thus improving skin hydration.
  • Is well tolerated and does not cause skin dryness.

Clindamycin 1% is a second main ingredient of a Faceclin gel. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that is used to treat inflammatory acne. Clindamycin works by reducing the number of bacteria that cause acne. It also has anti-inflammatory effects, so it makes breakouts less red and swollen. Topical clindamycin is used to treat anything from stubborn-but-mild inflammatory breakouts to severe acne.

Clindamycin doesn’t keep pore blockages from forming, though, and blocked pores are another piece of the acne development puzzle. In fact, when it’s used alone topical clindamycin isn’t too terribly effective. Topical antibiotics alone aren’t the best way to treat acne, that’s why Faceclin gel included two active components in its composition bundled with Nicotinamide 4%. Clindamycin alone work really slowly when compared to other topical acne treatments available. But use topical clindamycin along with another acne treatment and you’ll boost it’s effectiveness several times.

  1. Gayle Murray

    Smells Sticky Didn’t work for me I tried using this and it didn’t change anything. It smells gross and it’s sticky. it didn’t make my skin worse or better.

  2. Darla Larson

    I used this for a couple of months and it took forever to work and it made my skin extremely oily, even when I used moisturizer. I think its works but not for me, and didn’t make a difference in the redness or swelling of my acne.

  3. Rogelio Lindsey

    Cleared acne very well reduces redness very fast dryed out skin can be expensive I had somewhat bad acne and I used almost every product out there, I tried this product and it saved my face (:

  4. Grace N

    Dries pimples a lot faster, however dries out skin

  5. Roberto Jacobs

    Didnt overly dry out my skin no smell and doesnt stain sheets or clothes makes your skin appear really oily but i apply at night only anyways a friend said this will only work for about 1 year before skin becomes immune I have only been using this gel for about 1.5 months but it has really helped. in may/june i had severe acne. there were a couple cysts around my jawline that i could NEVER seem to get rid of… even with a clarisonic and different face washes. i started to use this in mid june and it is now early august and i am loving my skin! my skin will never be 100% clear due to scars and a couple of blemishes here and there but it has really helped. the acne that i have now is not nearly as bad! i have been getting compliments and im feeling way better about myself!

  6. Adrian H.

    Clindamycin + Niacinamide, my old friend combo! I had some cystic bacne in high school, a few constant spots, and mild facial acne. This cleared my back right up, but didn’t really do anything for my face. I would recommend for mild cystic acne ( though those words seem contradictory, mild cystic), but not for regular whiteheads/ prevention.

  7. Crystal R.

    Inexpensive, lasts a long time. No smell and takes a while for it to work. I was prescribed this when I had a horrible breakout. I had huge cysts. My dermatologist said I would have to go on accutane if this didn’t work. No amount of makeup could cover the huge bumps on my face. I used this with bactrim and Clinique’s dramatically different moisturizing gel. I wash my face with cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. It took 4 weeks for me to see great results. My skin started feeling super soft (Idk if this was from the moisturizer or not). Now, 6 weeks after the first visit to the dermatologist, all I have left are 2-3 small pimples and some scars. I can wear makeup and no one would know that I had severe acne.

  11. Marlon H.

    Moderate to severe acne: my miracle product!

  13. Silvia Mcdaniel

    Works well in conjunction with Adapalene gel

  14. Marshall Lowe

    Fast Easy to use Oily skin (only use at night ) I had terrible acne and it got rid of it FAST l put it on before i went to bed and in the morning my pimples were visibly smaller and in like 3 days they were gone <3 so i love love LOVE this

  15. Martha Barnett

    didn’t work at all

  16. Leslie A.

    Works great for adult cystic acne

  17. Dominic N

    Gets rid of hormonal acne/ black heads!

  18. Noah Ford

    I’ve been on Faceclin for over a year now. I use the roller one which looks like a bingo dabber. It lasts a very long time and has helped my hormonal acne tremendously. I also use a 5% benzo cream every few days. I have seen a dramatic reduction in my acne. For the people out there feeling helpless, I can sympathize. You will find what works best for you! Don’t give up!

  19. Edna Lamb

    It works buy it does take time, I’m using clindamycin and niacinamide gel at first I was prescribed the lotion but it was to greasy, then I heard about the gel and its been exactly 22 days today and it has made a big difference, I am also using retin-a cream 0.05% at night , wash my face with a cream cleanser, then apply clindamycin,then wait 10min and apply sunscreen, which is important if you are on retin-a, again the first 2 weeks were horrible, but once u get through the phase u will see great results It takes time

  20. Amber C.

    I am 45 years old and have been using this for about 5 years now. I also take spirinolactone (a pill) which helps with acne breakouts around the chin and mouth. I never had bad acne as a teenager, but as I approached my 40th b-day, I started to get these nasty cyst like pimples on my chin that hurt before you could even see anything. I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed Clindamyacin + Niacinamide gel topical, these two together have almost completely cleared up my skin. I also use the Dermatologica line of skin care products which have also made a huge difference in my skin. I use their face wash, moisturizer, and an exfoliator 3 times a week (exfoliation is extremely important to get rid of the dead skin and oil and bacteria that get trapped in your pores). My skin has never looked better!

  21. Cecelia Clark

    Semi useful for a short period of time.

  22. Maggie

    I was put on this for mild hormonal break outs. It has worked great! No drying. No side effects at all. I use it once in the morning and once at night. With in two days,I started seeing results. Now I continue to use it with very few new break outs. I have struggled for years…and who knew it was this simple to help my issue! I’m going to have my son use this now. I was the guinea pig…now that I know it works,I want him to use it also. Highly recommended to anyone having these same issues!

  23. Darnell

    At first skeptical, but it works!!

  24. Edward Grant

    Cleared my skin, not even a scar left!! dryed my face out a bit at first. I never write reviews but I feel like this has changed my life! After using murad (NEVER USE MURAD!!!) my face was horrible large cystic acne, it was painfull emotional and physically. I had it for about a year untill I got a prescription for acne dabber taro clindamycin. After about 2-3 weeks i notice a huge difference! After 2-3 months i didnt have not one pimple left on my face.. now 5 months later i dont even have scars left on my face, def try it 🙂

  25. Donnie M

    Made my skin very red and didn’t control new outbreaks or give me the results I was looking for.

  26. Rex

    I recently started using this in combination with other things to combat moderate inflammatory acne after taking oral steroids for a medical condition. It has really helped the inflammation! I know this is a temporary fix, but hopefully my other treatments will kick in before this stops working (Tretinoin, Spironolactone, Azelaic Acid, Ortho-Cyclen). Highly recommend the Faceclin gel (non-comedogenic), but be careful of the lotions, they often include pore clogging ingredients!

  27. Ora P.

    Hey everybody . I had moderate acne and i wanted it to be gone so fast . So i went to my dermatologist soeto MD and he prescribed me some capsules (the cure ) clyndamicin+nicotinamide gel and an acne cream . I can tell it worked! I now how have mild acne!

  28. Emanuel Jensen

    PREVENTS NEW BREAKOUTS!
