Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work for me I started using this product along with the 3 Step from LA Roche Posay about 3 weeks ago. Previous to that I was using Clinique's Anti Blemish 3 Step with their clinical clearing gel. For me, this product did not get results, any blemishes that appeared were instantly covered with the cream but I feel it actually hindered the healing process for me, and some blemishes were still on my skin from before I started using La Roche Posay. I will go back to using Clinique as this achieved better results, but this product is great for sensitive skin and is fairly odourless. It is a shame that it did not work out for me, but everyone's skin is different!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works, thankfully I'm not prone to acne so this review refers to occasional breakouts that most of us get. I had an overnight "surprise" on my chin and on either side of my cheek. They cheek ones were huge and bumpy, the type you can't really hide with concealer and the type that are really emphasized if you wear blusher (cos life is kind to me like that). So I tried this and while it won't make your spots instantly disappear, it will flatten them into something manageable fairly swiftly! This is brilliant, because you can use this under make up, a little goes a long way (therefore great value) and it won't dry your skin like many spot treatments. Having said that, there should be a rule of the universe that bans breakouts after a certain age! Meantime, I'll stick to this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and instant results!! I've never really suffered with breakouts as I've always suffered from very dry skin. However, since my mid to late 30s, my skin has changed (especially around period time) and has become very oily on my T zone that is very congested with black/white heads which can develop into painful small boil-like lumps which sometimes have several tiny heads on them. When I get these types of 'boils', I have learned that the best treatment is not to mess about with them as it doesn't quicken the healing process so I have to sit it out and wait for them to heal naturally which can take anything from 5-7 days and as a result, I want to go into hiding!! However, I came across some you tube recommendations that introduced me to this range. I tried this lightweight corrector cream on the above mentioned spot this afternoon and within about 10 minutes the swelling and redness had reduced noticeably and by the evening the pain had all but gone!! This could just be a fluke but I've tried other so called over the counter topical preparations and I've never had this instant type of result. The other bonus that it purports is that it prevents residual skin marking which will be another benefit to me as my blemishes take forever to heal - so time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brillant product.. I had so many spots on my face which would never disappear, I used everything possible but nothing worked then I got advised by a friend to buy this product and honestly I've never looked back! I use it every morning just after I've washed my face and before I'm about to put my make - up. I would certainly recommend this cream to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me! After hearing so many great things about this product i thought i'd give it a ago however this product totally didn't work for me. I do get breakouts however they are not as bad to be described as 'acne' however i felt this product was doing more harm than good for my skin. It is a thick creamy texture which i am not a big fan of as even when i applied only a thin layer it still sat on my skin and if i brushed my hand against my face i could feel it flaking off. Total waste of money and for a spot treatment it is a lot of money wasted. Really Disappointed, it didn't improve my skin in the slightest and continued to get more spots :( Don't waste your money on this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The best product for localised inflammation (acne prone skin; breakouts) The imprefections dissapear in 2-3 days (depends on severity).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non greasy This was recommended to me by a skin specialist in London. He said that La Roche- Posay was he only brand, and I would be wasting my money on others. I have never looked back and my skin improved and has stayed good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I was a little hesitant in purchasing this as it's more that I would usually pay for a spot treatment cream, but after reading the reviews decided I would give it a go. I'm so glad I did! It absorbs into the skin really well, meaning you can apply it before make-up and it doesn't peel off like other gel formulas I've used before. My skin wasn't bad before but I genuinely think it helps prevent spots as my skin has been clearer since using it. I now may go on to try the other La Roche-Porsay products.
