Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Tube of miracles! I bought this 3 weeks ago as I have been suffering with Menopausal cystic acne on my chin for the past 2 years and have even tried antibiotics (which helped keep the dreaded painful lumps at bay for a while). I usually get these lumps which last for 3-4 weeks at a time and just as soon as they start to go, another set rear their heads!! I bought this cream with high hopes after much research and my goodness am I glad I did. This little miracle seriously works! It calms the redness after about 10 minutes and when applied morning and night, has stopped the lumps in their tracks:) My skin is now clear for the first times in years and as soon as I feel a lump appearing I apply an extra dose of this cream and it completely goes away. I am SUPER happy with the results and would urge anyone with cystic acne to give this cream a try - you will not be disappointed!! I have now bought the face wash, toner and duo + and can't recommend this range enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I was getting quite distressed about my adult acne especially on my chin. Only been using it for a few days and my skin has improved a lot and so has the redness and soreness. I will be purchasing the cleanser and moisturizer too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore this Love it! Suffered hugely from hormonal spots after a nurse insisted on changing my medication. After 6 months of wasting 1 week out of 4, hiding away with massive red spots, I discovered this. I had tried so many creams which dried spots out but did little to stop the redness. This however is a miracle cream: it stops spots in their tracks. I now start using it a couple of days ahead of time and now have not seen a single spot! Fabulous stuff. Don’t suffer in misery - give this a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always - perfect for sensitive skin I tried this product and I suffer with very dry, sensitive skin. You really don't need a lot to apply to individual blemishes and the results are perfect. The product doesn't leave a residue on your skin and is silky smooth when applying. Would highly recommend to help correct blemishes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I don’t often get spots but when I do they are deep, swollen, painful ones. This product helped to reduce the swelling and redness. Really pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those pesky spots! I suffer from random spots as I pick at my skin when I get stressed (a terrible habit I know!) and then can't leave the spots alone so they take ages to clear up. I have been using this product on my spots, at night, and have been really impressed with the speed that my blemishes have cleared up. I have only had to apply a very small amount of the product on affected areas but did notice that it gave a slight sting when applied and did leave my skin quite dry after using it but I'd carry on using it in the future as the benefits outweigh the minor niggles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I totally recommend this product! I have tried Effaclar A.I. Breakout Corrector for a month and I am really happy with its effectiveness. Formulated for sensible skin, it does not dry your skin but helps to disminish localised imperfections and blemishes. I have tried similar products from other brands and my skin became dry and red, but It did not happen at all during this month. Imperfections are visible reduced! It totally works! I also like the texture of the cream and it absorbs quickly, not leaving a sticky feeling in your skin! The format of the tube is just perfect for traveling.
