Due to hormonal change in my 30s, I suddenly got breakouts. What I worried most was scarring and I noticed more blackheads as well so I gave this product a try because it seems to cover all my problems and it does. It cleared up my skin withinq a couple of weeks and I got a compliment about my skin. But blackheads are still there as I have to use other methods to try to reduce it. This product will stinks ur skin on your first use, especially after you just scrub your face with cleanser so dont use right after but give it an hour or so. Do not recommend this product to those with sensitive skin. But if u can handle it, it works. The smell is also a bit strong.
Get it on special
I never buy this item full price, it often goes on special, sometimes up to 40% off. I always keep a jar around and do not need to use it daily. I use it on my T Zone and it has cleared my blackheads significantly. If I get a pimple or two I use it 2-3 times a day on the spot until it clears. Once a week or so I'll use it on my whole face. The jar lasts ages. I am 35 and am often told I look like I am still in my 20s. Always spot test before buying, especially if you have sensitive skin. ALWAYS follow up with an SPF and if you have combo/dry skin put some extra hydrating cream or oil on.
My life saver
I’ve used this product for about 10-15 years. I had terrible acne and tried everything. I noticed my skin starting to clear after 4 weeks then all of my scars were cleared after around 40 weeks from using it morning and night. I notice now in my 30’s that if I stop using it I break out again. I highly recommend this product but we a bit patient for full results.
Waste of money
Unfortunately my experience has not been positive. Has a strong smell and is very greasy. Purchased this with high expectations and was extremely disappointed. This product made no difference to my skin. Don't waste your money on this product.
Skin Doctors: Ineffective Products!
I purchased a range of Skin Doctor products in September 2017 and a specialist advised me what to do from the company to get the best results. My skin is not that bad and I do look good for my age. I never broke out in rashes, but did find that It was very itchy at times. Unfortunately, these creams or applications did absolute zilch! No resurfacing or toning...nothing!
Twice a day with suncream during the day and even coconut oil for extra moisture as the Skin Doctor cream did not cut it.
I think Sorbolene would be a better investment if anyone is wanting a thick cream that can moisturize without a scent for only a fraction of the price. And that is saying a lot!
Saved my skin
I am 26, I suffered from non stop breakouts and milia for 5-6 years. About two weeks after starting to use this product I stopped having breakouts all together. Best product I have ever used, will continue to purchase.
Using for over 1 month with fairly good results
I have been using this cream for over a month now and am rather happy. At first my skin felt 'tingly' when I applied it but do not have this sensation so much after extended use. I have skin build up triggered from sun exposure on my very fair skin (I am a fair and red haired) and over time it has cleared these few spots on my face. My skin feels more hydrated and smooth overall if not at times a bit shiny but nothing powder doesn't aid with. Happy with the product considering it's low over the counter price.
Doing great things for me.
Hi, I have been using this for 3 weeks now and my face is looking fresher and the pores more refined. Over the years I have tried all sorts of treatments to make the pores on my nose and cheeks look smaller and be cleaner with no luck. But this has actually done it. I use the moisturisers too and I am really happy with how my skin looks now. I'm 51 and to be honest was very cynical at first but thought why not.
I love this product! I've only been using this for less than a month and it's working its wonders. Before I used this my face was terribly marked with scaring from acne and the redness
, well don't even start there! Now my face feels fantastic and it's proved in less than a month!! Soft, smooth and scaring reduced and the redness are slowly disappearing as if they're covered by make up. I now only need to use sunscreen with a tint of foundation and to cover the redness on my face. I definitely recommend it!
It has changed my life.
Having adult-onset acne for 5 years, I was demoralised at being in my 20s with shocking, inflamed skin. My face would constantly reinvent itself with new pimples between morning and night. Roaccutane did not work. I began using Gamma Hydroxy cream and I saw significant changes in the first week. Smoother, clearer skin. My acne reduced remarkably within 1-2 months. Now it has entirely cleared and my scarring is barely noticeable. Honestly, I could not speak higher about this product.
Skin Doctors are a waste of money.
I bought many products from Skin Doctors, having the Doctors name on the brand made me feel secure in the brand ... but one after the other product I tried , were not effective at all. Utterly disappointed and actually sad that so much money was wasted. Buyer beware
ive been using gamma hydroxy for 6 months and love it i use a lot of the skin doctors range and really love all the products ive tried im 45 and was told the other day I look 28 ive just ordered gamma hydroxy forte can't wait to try the next one
Causes break out and redness
Do not buy this product! I rarely get pimples in late 20s. but this greasy cream made my face red and get a break out. Now I have to treat my break out!!!!
Thanks for helping me get so many compliments!
I have been using gamma hydroxy (not forte) for around a year now. Im 36 and have fairly sensitive skin to a lot of products, still got the occassional hormonal breakouts, oily tzone, large pores, acne scars. I first bought GH after reading reviews online and was wary due to reactions I'd read about so used very sparingly once a day (evening) for the first week. I did get tingles and a few break outs that week but persevered. Week two i used every night and my skin cleared up, noticed my pores were looking better and my skin was no longer sensi...tive and after about 2 weeks started using twice a day. Well i have never looked back. My skin looks as good as it did when i was 20, minus the acne of course and i no longer get monthly breakouts. I work in retail and am regularly getting compliments from customers. Ive gone from wearing a full coverage foundation and powder to set, to just a powder to keep the oiliness i think im forever doomed to suffer at bay.
I've been cursed with acne for over 5 years, I'm so happy I found this product, This product cost $50 & it's working for me. Nothing else did until now, and I use this twice a day, morning and night after exfoliating and washing my face! And give your face a good massage! I recommend it!!!!!!
Great. Has good results.
Just finished first tub. Just purchased second. Pretty cheap getting it off eBay. Would highly recommend. Had relatively good skin to begin with, but is pretty flawless now. No breakouts etc while using. Skin looks amazing.
This is a great product from the first use, Be careful to tailor to your own skin sensitivity, I tried Gamma hydroxyl Forte first as I had a free sample and broke out really bad with red skin, I then tried The reg Gamma hydroxyl a month later and it cleared up any spots or blemishes, the forte was too strong, I recommend mixing with a moisturiser if you have sensitive skin as I would say I have sensitive skin and build up to using it on its own.
I have uneven skin tone after pregnancy been trying expensive skin product ever since but did nothing and mom recommended skin doctors online prescription and i purchased all the products..so happy with the result in 7 days all family and friends start noticing the different..love it love it
- Gamma Hydroxy
- Verified purchase
Very very bad result!!!!
I got a strong allergy on the face after using the cream Gamma Hydroxy for a week.
My skin became red, swollen , itchy from this stuff!! Dont belive in only positive feedback about Gamma Hydroxy. Be careful !
Cream gives a strong allergy ! Skin Doctors, stop pulling people's money !!
I have super sensitive skin and to give you a fare idea of what my skin complexion is like , I have all three conditions of scarring:
icepick scars on cheeks

I've been using gamma hydroxy as part of my facial routine
face full of makeup?
Scrub exfoliate till skin is clean of make up residue.I then apply a thin layer of my G.H ...
Questions & Answers
Could it work on pigmentations
Is it safe in breastfeeding?
I purchased a jar of gamma hydroxy skin resurfacing cream today in Gladstone Qld and when I opened it, it had a yellowish skin on the cream. Is this natural as I have never come across this before in any creams that I have bought?
Hey June - yeah I had that with the Gamma Hydroxy Forte - it's simply the Vitamin A separating a little - I mixed mine in but according to Skin Doctors it's not necessary. BTW, if you have bought the Forte only start it after using the original formula for three months or so - or you may end up with similar reactions you can read here - it is pretty potent for a leave on exfoliator so your skin needs to adapt to before using the game with Forte.
