The success in acne treatment depends on a few things.
1. Highly effective anti-acne ingredients. The American Academy for Dermatology lists anti-acne ingredients by efficacy. On the top of the efficacy list, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid and on the bottom acid and azelaic acid.
2. The products ingredients and percentage should match your skin type and acne severity.
3. You need to commit to the treatment.
4. Your skin should be constantly monitored and the medications fine-tuned.

Recommendations for topical therapies:
Acne treatment guidelines: Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology May 2016
Benzoyl peroxide or combinations with erythromycin or clindamycin are effective acne treatments and are recommended as monotherapy for mild acne, or in conjunction with a topical retinoid, or systemic antibiotic therapy for moderate to severe acne
Benzoyl peroxide is effective in the prevention of bacterial resistance and is recommended for patients on topical or systemic antibiotic therapy
Limited value: (need to be combined with benzoyl peroxide)
Topical antibiotics (eg, erythromycin and clindamycin) are effective acne treatments but are not recommended as monotherapy because of the risk of bacterial resistance
Topical retinoids are important in addressing the development and maintenance of acne and are recommended as monotherapy in primarily comedonal acne, or in combination with topical or oral antimicrobials in patients with mixed or primarily inflammatory acne lesions
Topical adapalene, tretinoin, and benzoyl peroxide can be safely used in the management of preadolescent acne in children Azelaic acid is a useful adjunctive acne treatment and is recommended in the treatment of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
Topical dapsone 5% gel is recommended for inflammatory acne, particularly in adult females with acne
There is limited evidence to support recommendations for sulfur, nicotinamide, resorcinol, sodium sulfacetamide, aluminum chloride, and zinc in the treatment of acne
