Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation for stopping breakouts I love this range of products and I think the 2 step system works particularly when when combined with occasional exfoliation using the Effaclar facial scrub and spot treatment with the breakout corrector cream. When used together it means I just don't see any spots these days - fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a dream As someone with combo skin, the way the wash doesn't dry my skin and cause it to breakout was amazing. The cream adds enough hydration that I'm happy with. Will be forever a fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle on my skin. The cleanser is very gentle on the skin and is non drying. My skin felt really clean but not tight. The serum is light weight, sinks in easily and did not irritate my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my 2 favourites I actually found this when I was in Uni, you can see visible results within a month! I would include this in my everyday routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quick and effective Loved using this duo. The mask is quick to apply and work. Only need to leave on for 5 minutes which is good for a shower in the morning. Left skin feeling matte and soft. Also quick and not messy to remove. The cream to apply on after absorbed well into the skin too. Really enjoyed using these products and will definitely keep buying and recommend to others in the future

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice system I haven't used this cleanser before and I was a bit dubious when I read that it was a foaming cleanser as I've used foaming cleansers before and they have been quite drying for my skin. However this really surprised me as my skin felt clean and not tight afterwards. It was a lovely after feel and made nicer when moisturised with the Effaclar Duo+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great even on sensitive skin I have breakouts on my cheeks and my skin is also sensitive so I'm always wary about what I put on it. The cleanser was very gentle and I wasn't left with the usual tightness you get from most cleansing washes. My face felt clean and soft. The moisturiser is really light and absorbs well and my cheeks definitely look smoother with a more even texture since I've been using it. My face also feels hydrated the whole day. It can be frustrating and confusing at times knowing what products to use when you've got skin which has the attributes of both middle age and adolescent but this anti-system seems to work well with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple items in my skincare routine! These two products are fantastic and are a key part of my skincare routine. I find the foaming gel works really well for cleansing my skin and the effaclar duo is so hydrating while reducing breakouts - perfect combination!
