Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A miracle after two+ weeks I'm 33 and have been struggling with combination skin my whole life. However in the last few years, possibly due to age related hormone changes, my skin has become a nightmare! All of my previous skin routines failed me (including Liz Earle and Skin Owl) in particular over the last two years. Worse, for the last 8 months I've had two areas of stubborn acne - on my right cheek and all along my jawline/chin area, with spots that sat under the skin and raised horrible rash-like welts. After 2 weeks using the three-step anti blemish system (and currently on my period, usually break-out central!) my skin has almost entirely cleared and the scarring/blemishes are fading already. It feels like a miracle! I only wish I would have taken before photos to show you how bad it was, but I honestly had absolutely no faith anything would work. So instead I can only attach photos of my healing skin today. Please do be patient - for the first 5 days my skin did break-out horribly at first, which I believe was due to the deep cleansing. But I stuck with it, and now things are turning out beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing products! Absolutely love these products. Has done wonders for my skin. Would highly recommend and wouldn’t use anything else now. So glad I found this range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturiser ever I bought this moisturiser based on the reviews I read on feelunique. Recently I’ve been suffering from break outs (probably hormonal due to my advancing years!) and using this has made a huge difference to my skin, it’s extremely moisturising but also gives a matt feel and appearance which keeps make up in place all day. A great product, so good I’ve already ordered more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than anything I've ever tried! I'm 24 and have had acne prone skin since I was about 13. I've tried countless products including prescription creams and lotions from my GP and never really had any success until I tried this 3-step kit from La Roche Posay. It took a few weeks to kick in but as promised on the packaging my skin dramatically improved around the 4 week mark. This was about 2 years ago and I've not used any other products since. My skin is now the best it has ever been. I have seen many people saying that it is too drying. It is drying but I believe you can adapt your routine to make it right for you. My skin is quite sensitive and dries out very easily so I can only use the set once a day rather than twice and if my skin gets particularly dry I might skip the routine for 1 day to give my skin a break. I also have to use another good moisturiser after the effaclar duo cream to ensure my skin stays hydrated. I would 100% recommend this product and I also think that the price is amazing considering what you get for your money and how effective the products are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant products Does what it says on the bottle. Skin improved within days of using

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this three step three weeks ago and have seen such a difference. I’m in my early 30s and suddenly getting spots when I have never suffered before, I’ve tried everything and this was my last shot before going to the Doctors. It hasn’t cleared it up completely but here’s hoping! But the difference it has made is incredible and dramatically reduced. I use all 3 morning and night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I bought this 3 weeks ago after doing some fairly extensive research, as at the age of 24 my skin has become acne prone and it was getting me quite down. I saw almost instant results, the next day my skin was clearer and less red. Now in to week 3 and cannot imagine not having these products. They've cleared up my skin immensely and it's really changed my life to be honest - I was getting so down about my skin. It may not work for everyone but this has been one of the best purchases I have ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver Since I was a kid I had problems with acne. I’ve tried most of the brands: cheap or expensive but nothing worked properly. I decided to give this brand a go. I’ve got the face wash, toner and cream. After 2 weeks of use I realised that my skin changed so much! I’ve been using them for one year now and I’ll never want to use something else. I have no more spots, no more oily skin and less blackheads. I used them twice a day, morning and evening. I would definitely recommend to anyone who had a big fight with acnea! They are like GOLD to me!
