what spot??? this was a great product I have been using this for over a week and have to say I was incredibly sceptical about it but it does actually work!! I especially liked the correct & hydrate cream this wasn't at all greasy or oily and made any fine marks I had on my face vanish lovely product would pay the money for this product as I did work !!!

Incredible! I've only been using this for a few days, and the pack says it takes a few weeks to see the results (According to the clinical trials), although some people see instant results. I was sceptical! But my word, I used this in the evening, following each step and instruction. I normally wake up to find my face is really oily and needs washing, but after using this just once I woke up to a matte face! This has never happened! The blemish cream is meant to improve complexion and I have to say I am already seeing a slight difference- probably helped by the oil control! It also is meant to moisturise and it definitely does this but personally I would still use a small amount of my usual moisturiser. My blemishes are already clearing and I've only been using it 4 days and nights! A bit pricey but worth the money for me! No doubt in a few weeks time I'll be posting another review on the longer term results too! But initially...WOW! August 10, 2014
Great system This new 3 step Anti-Blemish system from Effaclar is great. The cleanser is really gentle yet effective, leaving my skin clean and fresh. The clarifying toner leaves my skin smooth and has helped to reduce shine and large pores. Following both of these with the Anti-Blemish cream has helped to reduce the appearance of red and brown marks on my skin and has cleared up the blemished I had. I love this product so will definitely keep using it. August 11, 2014
