Buyer Beware!

published

I bought the cream with the expectation of the effect of a peel and what I ended up with was an allergic reaction that has seen my face swollen, red and with hives for the past two days. I’m bitterly disappointed, I will never buy a Skin Doctors product again.

Purchased in September 2020 at Chemist Warehouse Physical Store for A$51.00.

Good results

published

I am 26 and have had ongoing acne for years and have tried many many products. I noticed after a couple of months of using this my skin started to clear I am having less breakouts and have not had any of the painful cystic pimples i usually get since I started using it.

Makes me GLOW

published

I’m blessed with excellent skin. I use a tretinoin cream or gel 3 nights a week and in between I use this product, which helps shed the peeling caused by the Tretinoin. People say I look around late 30’s to early 40’s. I’ll be 59 in a month.

March 6th 2018 Update: Good exfoliant.

Clarifies skin and removes debris from use of Retin a. It tingles, and skin needs to get used to it but it helps make my skin glow. Recommended by me :)

This is a great product

published

This cream is non greasy and has a lovely fresh fragrance.
After applying it my skin feels soft and hydrated, I've noticed a visible improvement also which is something I haven't experienced with many other products I've tried.
I'd highly recommend this face cream to anyone who wants to look refreshed.

Not worth the price.

published

Every Skin Doctors product I have ever tried has been a failure. Huge marketing on their product range but it does not fulfill the promises. This product did nothing for my skin with zero changes.

Skin looks younger

published

I love this product. My skin looks clearer. No breakouts. Wrinkles appear reduced. Slight tingling only for a few minutes....nothing drastic. I will keep using it. Best product I’ve used.

Bad reaction

published

I developed a really bad allergy. My face became incredibly swollen and I developed little blisters, my face was red raw and itchy
I had to be put on prednisone and antihistamine.
I don't recommend this product.

No pain no gain

published

This product actually cleaned the dead layers off my skin. Milea reduced dramatically. I used it direct on my face without preparation creams. It burns for about a minute. The results are great but I would only use it once a week. I then used the Skin Doctors Potent vitamin A capsules. I do not recommend this product at all.. It says you need one capsule but you need at least 2. My skin is dry and itchy from using this after 2 weeks. Waste of money.

My only product I use religiously

published

Best product for all over face care - makes my skin smooth, reduced pores and acne, and toned it up while keeping it hydrated. It is pretty strong so if you go straight one it sometines it causes you to break out and peel in the first well but if you get through that you're golden haha

It does work

published

Definitely reduces acne scarring and improves skin texture.

I'm 57 with normal skin. I have looked after my skin religiously most of my life. I've been using vitamin C serum 20% with notable results for about a year. I've been using GHF for about three weeks. Product information indicates 8-12 weeks to see any difference. However I'm noticing acne scars are visibly reduced. Haven't noticed reduced wrinkles yet but it's still very early days yet. Based on results to date I do recommend this as a product that delivers and will purchase again.

Very Effective Product

published

I have been using this product for over a year now, I started on the non Forte before hand for around 2 years. It is an excellent product, smooths the skin beautifully. I use it every other day with SD white as I am 47 with quite alot of pigmentation and freckles. Both great products. It is very often on special at priceline and chemist warehouse. Be sure to wear sunscreen. I use it at night and wash off in morning. Just transitioning now to Tretinion .05%. I feel it has prepped my skin well for this strong prescription only retin A cream.

It did not work for me

published

I used a jar of gamma hydroxy first, applying twice a day with no effect.
I then bought a jar of forte, hoping it might be stronger, however this also had no effect after applying it twice
A day. Maybe its just me. I was trying to reduce skin pigmentation spots. Brian oct 26 2016

Good product

published

I'm in my 50s & always used quality skincare so my skin is in good condition for my age & this product enhances that & keeps my skin hydrated & smooth.

Love this, cant live without it!

published

I have been using this now for about 5 years and cant be without it! I am 60 but everyone thinks I am no older than 50, sometimes younger. I have pretty good skin, but sensitive, to start with but it hasn't deteriorated over the time I've been using this product. It does tingle, but this just suggests its doing its job and I have had no adverse reactions! Use a sun screen and good moisturizer over the top and you will see results. Skin is clear and glowing, no breakouts and really reduced pigmentation and wrinkles. Love it!

Best moisturiser ever. Skin goes off if I run out and don't use it for a couple of days

hideous relation....Face full of bumps and extremely itchy!!

published

I was so excited to use this product,as I've heard great reviews However, my experience was horrendous. On application I noticed my face turned greasy and tingly. The next morning I woke to a face full of red angry lumps and bumps, which only seems to be worsening. I am on Zyertec for the itchiness, and I'm very worried that my skin will never be the same again. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Very bad reaction
