Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Both of these products are essential in my skincare routine, wouldn't live without either as they work wonders in clearing up my skin and keeping hormonal acne under control. 100% recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this one week ago after suffering consistent breakouts on my chin. The difference in just a week is unbelieveable! My skin feels so clean after using these products and gets rid of make-up perfectly. The spots i had have all but disappeared and i haven't had any new spots appear since using. The tone of my skin has also noticeably improved, i am so pleased. I would highly recommend, does exactly what it promises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Over the last couple of years, I’ve suffered with continuously spotty skin. This is very annoying being in my early 40’s, I’ve been more spotty than my teenage years. I’ve tried all sorts of lotions and potions but nothing seemed to make a difference. Until I bought this. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and after it cleared the spots I already had, I have had literally no more appear. My skin is softer than it’s been for years, too. I have a little bit of ‘malting’ but use a facial scrub to clean it up once a week, followed by this wash and finish with the cream as usual. I cannot recommend this product enough. Pricey, but well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midlife face fixer I have been using this for a couple of months. I am in my mid 40s and am embarrassed by my t zone breakout. Not anymore. The claim that you can see a visible difference in 4 weeks used regularly is spot on. In fact, it didn’t take that long. I would say that it doesn’t dry my face out too much but does make it matt. I'm so much more confident now that my skin is clear. My makeup, which I need less of, is much easier/stays longer. Fabulous product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great together!! Love these two products - the face wash is a great second cleanser, and my face feels really clean afterwards. I then use the moisturiser and have definitely seen an improvement in terms of breakouts - the moisturiser is moisturising enough for my skin too, which often isn't the case for things that market themselves for breakouts (eg 'oil-free moisturisers') - really pleased with them both

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does work ! This system really does work!! I wanted to try this for a long time and so glad I finally did. Bumps on my forehead completely gone after a few uses and the face wash does not dry out my skin, for someone that doesn’t have very oily skin the face wash still works a treat for me - will keep repurchasing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Well what can I say? This stuff has changed my skin so much for the better. I noticed a difference after just the first use. My main issue was very uneven skin on my cheeks and forehead with lots of black heads and a few red spots. I’m now 2 weeks into this and can say my skin has improved by 60% already. I would say that if you have dry skin then this product is not for you, as I noticed my non oily areas became dry and flaky after a few days but I now use the cream on my problem areas and avoid the dryer areas on my face and it works a treat. Would defiantly recommend.
