This review is long overdue, but if you have seen me in the past few weeks, I’ve probably raved to you about this product.
I had no idea what this was until I received it.Now the first thing you have to know is that you mustn't be put off by the whole “As Seen On TV “ thing. Because as I later found out, you can also purchase this little gem at Clicks.
So what is it? It is a skin product set which includes a Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer. On the box it says that it will clear up skin in 28 days. I’ve said this before- I don’t really have a problematic skin but little buggers do pop up every now and then at the most inconvenient time. So let’s get right in.
It promises to clear out your skin- and it does. I was shocked because I’ve tried everything when a little blemish pops up- toothpaste, “zit-correctors” and those “takes-all-pimples-away” gels. Nothing has ever worked and I just had to live with it and cover it with a lot of foundation. So when a couple of buggers decided to pop up on my face before a big day, I opened my products and decided to give them a bash. I am not lying when I say this - the blemishes were barely visible the next morning. I tried this again and again, last time being the night before the Johannesburg Blogger Meet Up when Mr.Pimple decided it was a good time to decorate my face. By now I knew that these little gems would solve the problem and went to the meet-up with a decent face. I regret not taking a before-and-after photo to prove it.
Now I will say this again- I don’t have a problematic skin. So I can’t vouch for it clearing up acne or any serious skin condition. But I can honestly say that this is my go-to product for any breakouts or "bad-skin" days. On the box it has the stats of the product and it promises to clear out 90% of blemishes in 28 days. It worked so well for me in a shorter period so I don’t see why it wouldn’t work with a more serious condition.
There is only one, and I suppose you have to expect it with such a well-working product like this one. The smell. This is a 100% natural product with no added fragrance. The smell it not totally bad or anything, but it is not Coco Mademoiselle. The texture of the moisturizer is also a little grey, but don’t be put off by it.
The Price: The whole set retails at R400 and you could buy it at Clicks if you are not a fan of TV shopping (although after a couple of glasses of wine, who isn’t?).
The Bottom Line: I was pleasantly surprised by this product and will definitely keep buying it. I have added it to my skin routine, but not as an every-day product. I have been using it more for my “blemish emergencies”. Mr. Pimple can say goodbye!
