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
It did not work for me
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
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.
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!!!!
Love this, cant live without it!
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!
my entire face blew up like a balloon and then an alergy broke out-could not go to work for days.
the worst cream i have ever ever used by far. i want my $$$ back skin doctors
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.
found this skin care range to be the best I've ever used
I am 50 years old & have been moisturizing my face & neck for over 30 years. Used all sorts of creams & brands & while I was younger, it didn't seem to be an issue using the cheaper more common brands. However after I turned 40, I noticed a wrinkling appearance under my chin & the beginning of my neck from age & all the years of weight gain & loss. Then at around 48 I noticed the crepe like lines appearing on my decolletage (area between chest & neck). I started using anti aging creams but nothing stopped it & nothing reversed it. About 2 1/2 m...onths ago I picked up Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy (not forte) & used it twice a day with nothing else (only facial wipes after work). Within a week I noticed big differences in my skin clarity & tone. The fine wrinkly lines under my chin started to disappear. People started commenting after a couple of weeks. My first tub cost me $29 @ Chemist Warehouse & lasted me almost 6 weeks using twice a day. You only need a very small amount each time. I then purchased the GH Forte (Chemist Warehouse again for $34) & have been using it now for a couple of weeks. I do get a tingling feeling from it but no other reaction. My decolletage area is now smooth & I am confident in saying my skin looks 10 years younger. I will not be using anything else from now on. I highly recommend this product but like everything out there, it's probably not for everyone. However I can thoroughly agree with all the good reviews I have read because I know it works wonders for me too.
Best moisturiser ever. Skin goes off if I run out and don't use it for a couple of days
I can't remember how long I've been using this. A couple of times I ran out and tried something else for a couple of days, but my cheeks and chin would start getting small bumps, kind of like a blind pimple. I have a nice complexion that people have always commented on, but after I had kids it was very dry, especially on my cheeks. I only use this once a day, usually in the morning, sometimes I just have a jar of gammy hydroxy (not the forte), both products work for my skin and I wouldn't be without it. I did accidentally leave it at home onc...e when I went on holidays, but made sure I purchased another jar within a day of so. I've tried a few other top of the range moisturisers, but nothing else keeps my skin as nice as this, its reasonably priced and if you shop around the prices vary a lot from store to store.
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 !!
hideous relation....Face full of bumps and extremely itchy!!
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.
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
rolling scars, Box scar and visible pores!
Google image if your not sure which scars are what - and you will have a good picture of what I suffer!
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 ...
Very bad reaction
I tried the gamma hydroxy forte ,the first day i put it on my face became very itchy ,the next morning i woke up with a swollen itchy face .I stopped using it at once and had to go on medication to bring down my swollen . Has anyone else has this experience ?
Tried everything and luckily my sister gave me a tub to use.
I've tried everything to get rid of acne scar. I have sensitive skin and other products made my skin break out or caused irritation. This product took a week to make a difference. I only applied the product at night and every morning in the shower I notice a smoother feeling skin. My sister and colleagues at work all say I go for facials. This is the start of my second week in using this product and my skin tone - looks luminous and clear.
I was skeptical to this product as I was afraid I would suffer from an irritated skin if the product is not compatible with my skin.
This product works! 10/10
