CLINAGEL® gel - Acne treatment gel - Review

CLINAGEL® gel - Acne treatment gel - Review

Friday, November 12, 2010 Sara Hassan , 36 Comments

Today I am going to talk about this amazing gel that changed my sister's life. She had acne troubled skin for a very long time but this acne treatment gel became a life saver.

CLINAGEL® gel 
CLINAGEL® gel contains Clindamycin Phosphate equivalent to Clindamycin 1% w/w. It is an antibiotic with mainly bacteriostatic action against aerobic Gram-positive organisms (Oxygen dependent bacteria) and a wide variety of anaerobic bactiera (Oxygen independent bacteria). So in simple words, it is a widely used antibiotic to treat acne. It is safer and highly effective.

My thoughts
As I mentioned earlier, my sister had an acne problem. She tried everything, from medicated face-washes and astringents to home made masks. Nothing was working for her. She felt very low about her self, it really shook her confidence. We were all so worried about her. My mom was not in favor of my sister taking oral medication for its known side-effects. Since acne is caused by hormonal disbalance which occurs at puberty so there could be nothing to stop it from coming unless your hormones settle down with the passage of time. Then one day, a dear friend of mine told my sister about this "wonder gel". Within a week of regular use, her acne started to disappear and even the ones which were on the verge of erupting were put to halt due to the bacteriostatic effect of this gel. I could also tell that it was effectively working for her. After a month, her skin became clearer and her acne problem was controlled. 95% of her acne was gone. I also use it sometimes to clear up zits occurring in my T-zone and I felt no signs of irritation or dryness after use.

Dosage and administration
CLINAGEL® gel should be applied in a thin layer on the affected area twice daily or in accordance with medical advice. 

Precautions
Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth or abraded skin or other mucous membranes. Safety during pregnancy has not been established.
It comes in a laminated plastic tube containing 10 grams of the product. If used regularly, it can last 2 weeks. It costs Rs. 100 which is very reasonable and is available in all good drugstores/pharmacies across Pakistan.

I get this tube from Agha's and Motta's supermarket.

Do not use any medicine without a doctor's prescription.

  15. I also used it many times but sometime it takes more time to clear up skin. my skin was clear after i crossed teenage but it started again now in my 22nd year, i think i need to buy it again at least its more affective than those of other irritating medicated cream tubes.

  27. Undoubtedly its a wonderful gel. I suffered from acne problem and really felt so low because of that. I visited several dermatologists and they recomended me several expensive products.. even i took oral medications but nothing worked for me. Then one doctor suggested me clinagel and it worked so well on my skin. My acne started to heal up fastly and eventually my face became clear. Its still a regular purchase item for me, whenever i see some zits appearing on my face, i use it and it make them disappear quickly. Its an amazing yet pocket friendly product.

    1. i used the above gel and i have been a fan of it for 3 4 years now.
      yes now a days clinagel is short in teh market and hard to find
      CLINACIN gel is the exact substitute of clinagel with a different name. the formula is exactly the same
      clindamycin phosphate, equivalent to clindamycin 1% w/w
      i was also i search of clinagel when the pharmacist told me about clinacin, now i am using that for my acne. and results are equally good as clinagel

  31. Yes IT IS A WONDER GEL no doubt about it.. i have used it and it really changed my life. :)
