I have been suffering from breakouts due to hormonal imbalance. This moisturiser aids me in keeping my face smooth and lighten acne scars and even fine lines. Worth every penny!
Purchased in February 2021.
Have tried so many products before- always use to have breakouts and have quite scarred skin from teenager age. Skin is now soft and healthy and I extremely rarely get breakouts. I love the simple routine and ease of care

Terrible, made skin much worse
Ended up with severe breakout since using the real-u kit, my skin had been clear prior to using this with dermalogica acne treatment, since starting real-u my skin has broken out badly again.

Made my acne worse
I had mild acne when started using real u and ended up with acne all over my face I thought it is purging at first but after 6 weeks of using it kept on getting worse i had to stop . Now iam left with scarring .. i regret using real u
Results keep me coming back again and again.
My skin has never been clearer! I have been using Real-U for about two years now and the results keep me coming back time after time. Previously having dealt with dry and oily combination skin with bad break outs. I now have clear, smooth, healthy skin and don't bother with wearing foundation anymore.

Had high hopes, didn’t work for me :(
I was so excited to use this, it seemed to provide amazing results! I had moderate acne to begin with and now it’s worsened and spread after finishing the entire products. One positive is that it didn’t irritate my skin but it also had no benefits :( I do still think it works for a lot of people though so give it a shot, but for me it definitely didn’t.

Acne got worse
Bought the whole green kit and started out with only a few breakouts. I have sensitive combination skin. Kept using it and my skin ended up getting worse. My acne spread and I would wake up with whiteheads and cystic spots. Was Really Hoping it worked for me considering the price. Now $140 down and the bottles still full

Unfortunately, this product does not work at all and after few days of using it I can clearly see that my skin is becoming way worse than what it was at the beginning. I had a few pimples here and there on my face and that is why I bought the package with the green cream in it but my whole face started getting pimples after a few days.

No improvement after months of use
I bought this bundle as I was suffering post-pill acne. Unfortunately after three months of use I’ve seen no improvement in my cysts, pimples, closed comedones or blackheads. The products are easy and pleasant to use, but I will not repurchase as they have not improved my skin even slightly.

Only thing that fixed my skin!
I have battled acne to varying degrees for 20 odd years, any skincare I tried targeting towards acne prone skin would leave it stripped, dry and if anything aggregate it more. I was able to keep the condition controlled over the years with different medications however early last year, I started to break out in painful, cystic acne. The worst I had ever experienced. As a last ditch effort before considering roaccutane I decided to give real u a go after seeing it popping up on my social media. Within 3 months, my oil production significantly re...duced and my breakouts started to heal and become less frequent, by the 6 month mark I was completely clear and my skin was balanced!! I cannot recommend this line enough for those with problem skin as it’s the only thing that has kept my skin under control without medication. Although I’m now a good 6 months clear I still use the line as it keeps my skin so happy and balanced. If you’re on the fence about trying it, get off the fence and give it a go! You won’t be disappointed!

These products are just amazing! I was so shocked! So in love!!
I purchased the bundle a month ago and to be honest I was so shocked at the real results, it has cleared my adult acne up, I’m less oily and has been minimised my scarring caused from acne. the products are not harsh for the skin one bit and doesn’t leave your skin dry or flakey! I can say I feel good within myself not wearing makeup to hide my horrid skin! I’ve suffered from oily, acne skin for years and have gone through so many different skin products and have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on products that has not helped and if anything has made my skin worse off! I’m being honest when I say these products have blown me away with how effective they are and could not be anymore happier. I highly recommend realu products!

Didn't make a difference at all.
I am so intrigued by these reviews! Everyone loves Real- U! I got it about a year ago and stopped because after months it didn't make any difference, I noticed no changes at all and had a few more pimples come up (can't say if it was the product or just coincidence). I have recently started again last week, more pimples have popped up but I'm holding out faith, especially after these reviews. I am hoping to update this review with the same results as everyone else because my scarring from any spot i get ruin my confidence and uneven skin tone m...akes me never want to go out without makeup on. I don't get acne, just a few pimples that seem to tag team each other all over my face. Fingers crossed I can update with the same review as others who it seemed to work for. My skin is so scarred from every single spot I've ever gotten which is why I chose to purchase but I'm so sad it hasn't worked.

Questions & Answers
best facial moisturiser to use with retrieve o.05
I have been using the real-u bundle for a month now (I know that's not a very long time) morning and night, and I've definitely noticed that my skin is a lot less dry and flaky but pimples/cystic acne/blackheads have still been showing up at their regular pace... I'm just wondering if anyone had a similar experience and it gets better?
I just need a bit of hope as I've tried EVERYTHING (for months at a time) for 7 years with my terrible acne.
I have pretty clear skin, my main problems are blackheads around my nose and some scarring from when I had acne throughout puberty - are these products only beneficial for individuals with acne?
