Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great coverage I have been using this product for about a month, but sorry to say I've not really seen any great improvements to my skin - I had high hopes for this product! The spots on my forehead seem to be worse and more of them - I've also noticed that it's made my skin seem a bit oily too, especially the forehead. The cream goes on really easily and gives a good, even coverage - the fine nozzle tip makes it easy to administer the correct amount of product. The tube is a nice size too as it fits easily into a make up bag or handbag if on the go. I will persevere further to see if there's any improvement over a greater length of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fab cream for spotty oily skin! bought the normal version of this a few months ago and I love it. I've finally found something that works for my dry cheeks but very oily t zone as well. decided on the 30spf one for the coming summer and I'll probably stick with it for now on. love love love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as great as the duo original I use the effaclar range religiously and found this new added spf version. It looks milky when you apply it to the skin and feels exactly like sun cream, I've used it intermittently with the duo original cream and haven't noticed any more break outs than usual. Buy if you want SPF protection, but it's not a replacement for the original, I save this for days when I'm out and about in the sun, otherwise I stick to the original if I'm staying in doors. Not a great base for makeup either, feels sticky and thick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Moisturising but a a little oily The first time I used this product I loved it, it felt like I would expect an expensive cream to. I instantly liked using it and my skin felt softer. However, over time I realised it wasn't fully sinking into my skin and my skin almost became a little saturated with it. I could rub the excess off with my fingers. I also think it has lead to me having more spots, which is surprising. I think this cream would be nice to use occasionally but not every day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice moisturising effect This comes in an easy to dispense tube so it's easy to dispense just the small pea size needed for application. The tube will last for ages so it is good value too. It is a thick creamy formula with no strong perfume odours so wasn't irritating on my slightly sensitive skin. It was easy to apply and non-greasy and it sunk in very quickly. It gave an instantly moisturised and refreshed feel and made a great base for make up. I have combination skin prone to break outs and blotches. I used this for a month but unfortunately did not really see any great improvement to my skin or appearance of pores. I also developed some dry blotches. Although red flare ups did appear less obvious. Nice quick to use cream but no great benefit for me over my usual moisturiser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super soft skin After using for a few weeks, my skin looks so much clearer and has become more normal rather than oily, I no longer get giant spots just the odd few small blemishes as it's a hormonal issue and i have relatively smooth skin. It looks like it belongs to someone else! I really like this product. My skin is soft and clear

Rated 1 out of 5 by from love original, hate this I have oily skin and the original one helped me a lot with my acne problems, I love it and swear by it. I could not find it in boots and so grabbed this one. It is so bad. Leaves sticky film on my skin, which is so bad when you have oily skin especially. While the original one would mattify my skin and would help to combat oil during the day. and this is even more expensive! I am highly disappointed in this product and need to stock up on original one! I do highly suggest that one for anyone who has acne problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I bought this as I am in my late 40s and still suffer from the occasional spot. Honestly, this cream has worked wonders. I use it as a daily moisturiser and add the BB cream on top if I want to wear foundation. My skin has cleared up and the texture has improved. At my age I want an SPF in my cream, but most other creams gave me spots. This one hasn't. I'm chucking out all the other creams I have collected over the years trying to keep my hormonal spots at bay and will replace with this range.
