Nuallura is a topical acne Cream that contains 2 active ingredients – benzoyl peroxide and adapalene. The drug is available only on prescription. According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, the product should be used in the treatment of acne vulgaris, along with the occurrence of pimples, papules and blackheads.

The use of adapalene provides a local anti-inflammatory effect, which is even stronger than retinoids.

I have been using Nuallura for some time and I am satisfied in part, because the severity of acne is really much smaller, but on the other hand, the drug causes very strong skin irritations. Despite the fact that the pustules are less, the skin is baked and red, the use is not pleasant, and without make-up does not look good. I tried to use a moisturizing cream as recommended by the manufacturer, but it does not help much. I do not know if acne will not get worse if I stop lubricating.
Nuallura is another drug prescribed to me by my dermatologist, I had a duac before, but the results were very poor. As for the Cream, the effects compared to the duac are much better, but unfortunately I am in the group of people who have side effects of use. The first effects, i.e. the disappearance of pustules, I observed after 2 weeks of use. The price is not too high, so generally this drug is recommended. It is a pity that you need a prescription, but you can see that the Cream is quite strong.
I have a problem with acne for almost a year. During this time, I tested various ointments, pills and prescription drugs for acne. From my own experience I can say that Nuallura is suitable for the treatment of quite advanced acne, copes well with pustules, but after discontinuing the Cream, unfortunately, acne returned. Now I am taking Regen A Cream and here there are no side effects, and the skin condition has improved, so if someone has a serious acne problem, I recommend it more.
