USER REVIEWS: Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy

grey dots

Skin Doctors have released an anti ageing cream called Gamma Hydroxy, which is designed to smooth the appearance of acne scarring, wrinkles and other visible signs of ageing.

The combination of ingredients including Glycolic acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid help to resurface the skin and the result is smoother, younger looking skin.

Sophie Falkiner is a regular user of Gamma Hydroxy and has been quoted as saying, ““I can’t live without Gamma Hydroxy. It leaves my skin feeling radiant and new every day!”

The results have been compared to a chemical peel, but what I like about this product is that it is a process that takes time – results start to appear in a few days but the overall condition is improved over a matter of weeks. This means it is much gentler on your skin and as someone who is prone to sensitivity I am happy to report that I have had had no negative reaction to Gamma Hydroxy!

My skin is starting to look fresher and more radiant and I am excited to continue using this product as I am sure I will continue to see an improvement.

gamma hydroxy

This product is applied twice daily and gradually your skin will be transformed. You can apply any areas of concern such as your face and neck. I should note that slight tingling is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

I am enjoying using Gamma Hydroxy, with no irritation and softer skin it is something I will continue to use.

  1. I am a little disappointed that I didnt get to trial this product.

  2. Juanita Thorn says:

    Ooohh thanks I received my email invite. Cannot wait to receive the sample to trial, it sounds promising. Thanks B&L.

    • Can’t wait to hear what you think Juanita, thank you for being involved!

      • hii lace
        i just read the review on this product and it sounds great. i have seen amazing results from my cousin, her face looks so flawless and its soo radiant compared to before.
        i have some hyperpigmentantion and my skin is a bit sensitive to harsh chemicals, however i believe that its become less sensitive to some products i use which is suprising. so i was wondering whether i could find a sample from this website to observe how my skin reacts to it before i buy the whole product as its a bit expensive to take a risk.
        i really want blemish free even skintone and i believe this would help, so please is there a posibility for a sample??

  3. Received my email today. I am very excited. Thankyou

  4. My apologies Lace, I did recieve the email and am very excited to trial this product. Cant wait to get it.

  5. I have trialed this product for the past few days and I am glad I had the opportunity to see how great Gamma Hydroxy is.
    It has made my skin super soft and has given my face a slight radiant glow,not to exaggerate but it’s only been a couple of days so if I were to use this for the next month I strongly believe it will do wonders to my skin and be a little pot of miracles.The only thing I didn’t like that much was the smell,it’s not too bad but for me personally it’s not great either. overall rating 4/5 stars. great product would highly recommend. thank you. :)

  6. Can I ask anyone that has used this if I put my normal moisturiser on straight after applying this? Or do I wait? Sorry I didnt find anything on the pamphlet or the box. Is it to be used like a serum?
    Please help me as I would like to be able to do a good review, but I cant if I dont know what I am doing.

  7. I Started using Gamma Hydroxy on the first day it arrived so today is my 5th day, I am pleasantly suprised by the improvement in my skin in such a short time! I feel that my skin tone has started to even out already.I am really enjoying this product, as soon as i apply it and the slight tingle subsides my skin feels so smooth and looks radiant.I really love the texture and scent of this product as well.I will continue to use Gamma hydroxy. Thank you Beauty and lace for introducing me to this great product!

  8. Lyshai Brombara says:

    When this revie came up I had to shoot my hand up and say “pick me”‘ because it suits my skin to a T! For Years I have suffered with acne and scarring that I cant seem to control without getting resurfacing and rejuvination treatments. Now I have only used this for 5 days but I must say I can deffinatly see a difference! After adding this beauty into my daily routine, I can see that my skin is glowing and the redness of my scarring is appearing to look less noticeable. Yay! I really feel that with continuous use this product will work wonders! The product itself feels really light and sofy when it goes on and does not make me feel oily afterwards, I noticed that my skin has peeled just slightly but that means its working :) Absolutly love this product definatly going to go out and buy a jar on payday, thanks Beauty & Lace :)

    I have been using this for a few days now, and have noticed a slight improvement in the look of my skin. The cream is thick and goes on easily and has a pleasant smell, the only thing I would say is a little goes a long way. The first day I used it I think I was a little heavy handed and it seemed to sit on my skin, but I was more frugal the rest of the time and have found it to be wonderful, not heavy or greasy and leaves my skin feeling fresh. Can;t wait to see the results after a couple of weeks, so far I am impressed

  10. I wanted to review this product specifically because I have been struggling with acne and acne scarring for quite some time now. It’s only been a few days, so I believe things will get much better, but even in this short time I can already feel something different. The cream goes on easily and doesn’t give you that horrible oily feeling after, and it smells pleasant too! I’m quite impressed with the product and I can’t wait to see what more it does.

  11. Thank you so much for this opportunity,to try Skin Doctors Gamma hydroxy skin surfacing cream.In last five days I noticed a big difference in my skin.i have got some faint acne scars on my face which were so stubborn until now.with this cream I have noticed them much faded and my ski is looking fabulous.soft and smooth to touch,noticeably radiant feeling like discovered new skin under the old one. so happy with it and will definitely recommend to all.

  12. I was soo looking forward to try this product and happy to add that It didn’t disappointed me,

    First of all Such a lovely and exclusive packaging. :) It wasn’t very small sample as I expected either. It cute little bottle filled with fair value of product. Perfect for travelling. (Going this Saturday)

    The texture of product is thick however glide smoothly and observes fairly quickly. It smells nice; somewhat like Nivea and I enjoy that sort of smell.

    I can’t Particularly comment if I can see the difference of not as It’s hard to find difference if 5-10 application. However I liked the product and looking forward to buy again if I can locate any deal. ;)

  13. As soon as I received my sample I started trialling it. The cream is fairly thick so I only needed a tiny amount to thinly smooth onto the whole of my face. I only noticed a tiny bit of tingling. I didn’t find the cream to be greasy at all. My dry skin lapped it up easily.

    After using it now twice a day since receiving the trial, my face certainly shows a clean, looking radiant glow. I am impressed with the outcome and looking forward to seeing further down the weeks.

  14. I love this product. Gamma Hydroxy certainly delivers what it says. After applying a small amount twice daily for the last 3 days I have noticed my skin to be more radiant and healthy looking.
    My pores seem to have become smaller and my skin feels more taunt and youthful. The redness I had on my chin is slowly reducing so I can’t wait to see what happens in a few weeks or even months. It feels great on your skin and doesn’t have the roughness that other exfoliants have, plus you don’t have the bother of washing it off.
    I simply applied a small amount all over my face before applying my moisturiser and makeup. I did wait several minutes for it to dry. I did feel a slight tingling but it seemed to only occur after I had applied my Clinique foundation and wasn’t unpleasant in any way.
    The only problem I had with it was that the instructions didn’t say when to apply it i.e before or after moistursing and I think the instructions need to say that you don’t have to wash it off either. The product itself is a 5/5 but due to the lack of instructions I give it a 4.5/5.

  15. Anne Peachey says:

    Received my sample yesterday.My friend took a couple of photos of my face ‘before’ I started using Gamma Hydroxy this morning. I certainly noticed some tingeling on my skin but noticed this was mainly where I had deep wrinkles and sunspot due to working outside and on the ocean for many years.Gamma Hydroxy is very easy to use and the sample is alot bigger than I was expecting.After the tingling eased, my skin feels fresher.I am certainly looking forward to seeing any changes after using this product for a few days.I will keep you up to date.

    • Anne Peachey says:

      I am totally amazed at the difference in my skin since starting to use Gamma Hydroxy!!! The sun spot I had were very distinctive but have faded so much it is unbelievable.Quite alot of the fine wrinkles I had have faded and even the really deep wrinkles are not so bad.This is only after 5-6 days use!! My skin feels softer and lookes refreshed.I have even been aked by a couple of my work mates what skin products/routine am I using or doing.I give this product a huge thumbs up and rate it as 10 out of 10 and I would definately recommend it!!!!!

  16. jo ( mrs Kan) says:

    I really liked using this product. It has only been 5 days but i have noticed my skin is smoother and clearer as well… as a mum of 2 kids under 4 that is great news!

    cream is thick but nor gluggy and not strongly scented.
    I would have like a bit more instruction as to how much to apply to my face. I don’t think i was using enough in the beginning.

    I am going to come back and report after 2 more weeks !!

    Thanks B & L adn The Skin Doctorsfor the trial :)

  17. I was lucky enough to trial this gamma hydroxy and to be honest I was very sceptical of the claims, I put my hands up and say without a doubt this is THE Best skin care product I’ve ever used. I’ve spent A LOT of money on different products but this is by far the best yet. My skin feels and looks amazing even my husband commented on it ! It’s like new skin ! My makeup even looks better I couldn’t be happier ! I plan on continuing with this product and hoping to try it with the rest of the range. Huge thumbs up from me and thanks again for this opportunity :)

  18. Michelle Chadwick says:

    I have only just received my Gamma Hydroxy trial and already it has passed my first test. I have quite sensitive skin and no reaction which is always good. I have spent money on many products that I cannot use due to reactions. goes on nicely and gives my skin such a nice feel. will continue using and post more details soon.

  19. Firstly I wanted to say that I am thrilled with the size of this sample, so thank you to both Beauty and Lace and Skin Doctors.
    The only downfall that I have had with this product, was that I didnt think it was clear on exactly where this product was meant to sit in your daily skincare routine. Thankfully that has been cleared up for me.
    I have been using this product for the last 5 days and absolutely love what it is doing to my skin. I applied it after cleansing and toning and before moisturising. It left a pleasant tingling that just made it feel like the product was actually working, but there was no discomfort whatsoever.
    After the very first use my skin felt softer and more supple. After 5 days of using it, the clarity of my skin is better, my pigmentation has lightened and it is glowing from within. My complexion is actually radiant, which is exciting as I have used plenty of products that claim to give radiance, but this is the only one that has truly followed through.
    I will definately be re-purchasing this product purely because I know it works.

  20. I’ve always wanted to try Skin Doctors and I’m glad I got the chance to because this product is ah-mazing! It comes in an attractive glass jar which is sealed with a peel off sticker upon first opening. It’s also packaged in a box that comes with paper instructions. I used this cream for 5 days after cleansing my face and drying. You only need a small amount otherwise you may appear shiny! But the cream is rich and thick in texture. It is very easy to blend in and absorbs quickly into the skin. The scent of the product is strong and zingy.

    On day 2 I iimmediately noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. It felt like it was covered in small bumps but not irritated at all. You could expect that from this type of product though so I didn’t freak out. On day 3 I noticed slight peeling on my forehead which was quickly resolved with some of my regular moisturiser. After 5 days my complexion had improved so much! I still can’t believe how quick the results are. My skin appears brighter, clearer and more even in tone. It’s even reduced my fine lines and has worked wonders on pimple scarring! I’m a huge fan of this cream. Looking forward to the next few weeks.

  21. Melissa Barker says:

    Have been trialing this for 5 days, the cream is smooth and smells nice.. It has made my skin so much smoother and you can definately feel and see the difference.

  22. Thank you to beauty and lace and Skin Doctors for including me in this trial and allowing me to try this wonderful product.
    Let me start by saying ive fallen in love.
    I really like the jar design of this product. It makes it easy to access the product and apply quickly and smoothly. This is quiet a thick cream, thicker then all night creams ive tried but i find it very easy to work with. Its smooths over my skin and is absorbed unbelievably quick. Each morning and night i apply a thin layer of the cream to my face, i find the smell is similar to sunscreen to me but not over powering and the smell disappears once applied. I never once experienced any drying out or soreness. On day one, morning and night, i felt a slight tingle for around 5 minutes after i applied, but after day one my skin adjusted to the cream and i havnt felt any tingle since.It was quiet shocking to me that my skin didnt react to this cream as i have dry/sensitive skin. I sometimes react quiet easily to new product but this cream actually suited me well.
    This cream makes my skin feel soft, smooth and hydrated day long. Ive been using this cream for 5 days now i can already see results. My skin always feels soft, ive noticed my skin tone is more even and youthful looking plus old scars on my face are fading. If i get results like this within a few days of usage, the results of using for months will be amazing.
    Ive already recommended this product to a few family members and i will continue too. Its unbelievable and i strongly recommend to try.

  23. Gamma Hydroxy is a great cream, perfect for skin that needs a little boost. After only four days I can see a difference in the appearance of my skin – my pores are smaller and my skintone a lot more even so I definitely can’t wait to see how well it works after two weeks!

    I’ve heard people mention a slight tingling sensation which I havent’ encountered yet and whilst the scent is quite strong, it dissipates quickly. It doesn’t spread as well as more watery moisturisers, but that’s a good thing because this isn’t your average moisturiser! It soaks in quickly and though I haven’t tried it with my regular moisturiser over the top, so far, I haven’t needed to.

    In short, Gamma Hydroxy is a product that will rehabilitate your skin even if you think it doesn’t need it. It does what it says it will and the results are great – I’ve actually thrown out my “backup” moisturiser because this one will be taking up permanent residence on my shelf and in my beauty regimen.

  24. Love, love, love this product! After only a few days my skin already feels less bumpy and looks much cleaner.

    Using products like this I quite often try them but have to wash it off after applying and discontinue use due to an irritation and redness. I have had none of that with Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Cream, no tingling sensation and it feels lovely to apply.

    I’ve had days where my confidence has been lowered because of my skin so I definitely needed some help. I now can’t wait to see just how good my skin is going to look after using the cream for a lot longer.

  25. When I was a teenager I had a lot of acne which has left scarring so when I heard about this product, I was eager to try it. I received my sample and have been using it for 5 days.

    I felt a slight tingling when I applied it but it was not bad and did not last long. After 3 days, my face stopped tingling when I applied the product. The first thing I noticed about this product was that it draws out my blackheads within a matter of hours! This was very pleasing to me as I am prone to black heads.

    I have only been using the product for 5 days so far so have not noticed a huge improvement in my skin tone but I have noticed that the gunk is starting to be drawn out and my face feels so much cleaner. This product is also reducing the oil in my facial skin. I love the product and have already purchased a full sized one for when my sample runs out.

    If you have problem skin, this is the product for you! I am fussy about what I use and normally have several products for my problem skin but they can all go out now because this one is the only one I need in regards to moisturiser, shine reducer and blackhead removal.

  26. Jeannine Barrett says:

    I was a little worried about doing this trial because I have super sensitive eczema prone skin but to my relief the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy didn’t cause me any problems in that way.
    I will say I don’t like the smell of the cream but that’s probably because I’m used to using products that have little or no smell at all. I did experience slight tingling for the first few days but nothing uncomfortable.
    Other than that I am thrilled with the results, I’ve been using it for 5 days and my skin is now softer, firmer and more refined. My pores seem smaller and it has even reduced a red scar mark on my cheek, I haven’t noticed much difference with the dark age pigmentation on my face but that may change with longer use.
    One other thing, when I showed my husband the trial product he insisted on trying it too and he has had similar results to me, so this product isn’t just for women, it works for men too. Because the cream is so thick and the trial size very generous there is plenty left for both of us to keep using it for quite a while.
    Overall I am very very happy with this product and would highly recommend it .

    SKIN DOCTORS COSMECEUTICALS GAMMA HYDROXY CREAM

    - 15MLS….$49.95

    The Gamma Hydroxy Cream comes in a 15ml recyclable plastic screw top lid over a glass pot. I like the simple packaging and the fact that it is recyclable.

    Instructions for use are simple……Apply a thin layer twice a day after cleansing routine. Follow with moisturiser. I used the moisturiser about 30 mins. after the Gamma Hydroxy cream to give it time to be absorbed well. I have used it on my face, neck, decolletage and the backs of my hands.

    No discernible scent was noted.

    The texture of the cream is silky, soft and coloured white.

    The Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy cream is a gentle resurfacing cream that claims to…..
    - Smoothe the appearance of acne scarring
    - Reduce visible signs of ageing, wrinkles and pigmentation
    - Reduces pore size
    - Improves skin texture and colour.

    It comprises of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids that along with other substances are blended together to have a gentle resurfacing effect. Recommended to be used for 4-6 weeks for best results.

    I have, dare I say it, ageing skin with pigmentation and wrinkles, so I was really looking forward to trying this product. After completing a skin test with negative results, I eagerly commenced using this cream as per instructions.

    On application, a slight tingling was noted but disappeared very quickly. The cream is silky soft, applies easily and is absorbed very quickly.

    After use, my skin feels sooooooo soft, hydrated and smooth. I am really enjoying using this lovely product. I have been using it for five days however for full effects it is recommended that you use it for 4-6 weeks for the ultimate resurfacing effect to be observed. I cannot wait to see what my skin looks like then. It feels so soft and smooth now ( after using it for five days).

    I am certainly going to keep using Gamma Hydroxy Cream and would recommend it to other people to try.

    CAUTION NOTED……. May increase the risk of sunburn.

    Thanks Skin Doctors and Beauty and Lace for this trial. I am feeling very privileged as the Gamma Hydroxy ( even in early stages of use) is proving itself as a superior quality product.

  28. Firstly thank you to Beauty & Lace and Skin Doctors for letting me trial the Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream.

    I have combination skin, prone to breakouts, some scarring from past acne as well as increasing pigmentation so I was excited to trial this cream. My main concern was that it would make my skin break out, but that has not been the case.

    The first time I used the cream, I felt a slight tingle, which however was so minor and disappeared so quickly that it didn’t bother me. Following, I did not notice any tingling when I used the cream. The tingling is no doubt due to the cream containing both alpha and beta hydroxyl acids, which have the same effect on the skin as a chemical peel.

    The skin has a thick consistency, and so I was a little worried that it would leave my skin greasy, but it absorbed quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft and looking healthy. It also worked perfectly under makeup.

    After having used the cream both morning and night for a few days, I have started to see a change in my skin. It is thoroughly moisturised and looks more radiant and healthy looking. As for my scars and pigmentation, I have not yet noticed any major change. However it is recommended to use the cream for 4-6 weeks for best results, and seeing it has only been a few days, I am looking forward to seeing the results as so far I am I am very impressed.
    Thanks again for letting me trial this cream.

  29. My skin is feel refreshed and smooth after using the SKIN DOCTORS COSMECEUTICALS GAMMA HYDROXY CREAM for the last 5 days and I am impressed with the results. I have a combination skin and after early sun abuse (I tanned as a teenager which was many many years ago) I have tried to look after my skin as I got older, reducing sun exposure using a moisturiser with sunscreen etc. Sadly though, my skin has fine lines and wrinkles and some acne scarring.

    The cream feels lovely on my skin and although I experienced some tingling when using it for the first couple of days (which wasn’t unpleasant in itself – just a reminder it was working) I find this has passed. The cream absorbed easily into my skin and felt great on.

    My skin is certainly clearer after this short time and looks and feels smoother and I am excited to see how it is after a couple of weeks.

    All in all I am very impressed with this product and will continue to use it.

  30. In the past five days I have experienced something new: an extraordinary resurfacing cream from a source i had yet to try: Skin Doctors. Thank you so much Beauty & Lace for introducing me to this brilliant product.

    To say that both the product and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about skin resurfacing creams is a gross understatement. They have amazed me.

    Within minutes of my first application, my skin was feeling fresh and tight. I experienced some burning sensations whilst using this cream, but i pushed through what was uncomfortable because the results were simply too good. Already i have seen a visible difference in my skin. It is glowing, and my pores appear reduced.

    It is difficult to imagine a better working product, as in my opinion, nothing less can be finer. I will continue to use Gamma Hydroxy, & i have already made my purchase.

  31. I’ve been using this for four days now, and I wasn’t expecting to see a lot of change yet. For one thing, they’re up front about it taking a few weeks to work (which was refreshingly honest and realistic).

    However, my initial reactions have been very positive. I like the texture of it; it’s lighter than I expected and is absorbed very quickly and easily. This means it sits easily under my moisturiser. You also don’t need to use too much of it; a smallish amount goes a long way.

    I do get the slight tingling that some report, and it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s very minor.

    And the important thing? Yes, I do think I’m starting to see an improvement in my skin. It looks a little brighter and fresher already, and it certainly feels soft and moisturised. I’m not yet seeing a big change in skin texture or impact on scars/blemishes, but I’m optimistic that with longer use this will come too. I will continue using this, will probably purchase it, and at this early stage would certainly recommend it to others. I’m not seeing any downsides to it, and there seem to be benefits.

  32. Claire Murray says:

    I really enjoyed using the cream. After 5 days I could see my acne scars disappearing. The only thing is that it increased my acne.

  33. Roxana Alegre says:

    I have been using this product for the 5 days as adviced and have been amazed by the result left on my skin. The skin looks refreshed, soft and smooth.

    It was easy to apply, although of the thick cream but it just spread smoothly on my skin and it disappeared easily. Yes, there was a slight tingling but that did disappear slowly but the end result was greaqt. And as one begins to slowly age and at times our harsh environment it is always great to use a great product to look after your skin.

    So thank you very much Beauty & Lace and to Skin Doctors for this amazing opportunity to try this product for myself, and no doubt l will tell others about it.

  34. So far I’m enjoying using Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream. I don’t mind the subtle smell, I ind it to be quite pleasant. The cream itself is a little ticker in consistency then I’m used to, but the good thing is, a little goes a long way (this also makes the product better value for money).
    I love the results I’m getting from this. My skin feels smoother, and that’s only after using it for a few days. Apparently there’s a progressive effect and results become even better with time, so I can’t wait to see improved results with continued use. I did experience some tingling upon application, but that’s to be expected. Impressed with the results so far, and can’t wait to see better skin when I keep using the product longer!

  35. Many thanks for letting me try this amazing product, I was a little reluctant at first to use it but after a day thinking about it I thought ok lets do this and I am so glad I did my skin feels so smooth and soft. And my husband even made a comment a good one your skin is so soft what happened. So many thanks for letting me trial this product.

  36. Catherine Hill says:

    I have been using this Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy sample and it has faded my red skin where I had a potential skin cancer taken off. I am waiting to see how my pores react to me using this cream. I will be buying this Gamma Hydroxy to keep my skin looking healthy and younger.

    Thank you for letting try this product out

  37. thank you for the opportunity to try skin doctors Gamma Hydroxy,
    I liked it from the instant I first put it on my skin, I had no nasty after affects not even the tingling & I have sensitive skin, it gave my skin a radiant glow & a smooth skin. I also think its good value as you dont have to use much.

  38. Thanks very much for the opportunity to try the Gamma Hydroxy by Skin Doctors. I started using it the day I received it and have used it twice a day for 5 days. I just used it after cleansing and before my usual moisturising cream.

    I like the packaging, it’s a cute little jar and looks luxurious. The cream itself is nice and rich, a little goes a long way, and it sinks in nicley. I was wondering how my skin would react to this cream, because I suffer from rosacea and my face is very sensitive but all I experienced was a slight tingling sensation. No discomfort or adverse effects . . so I’m happy about that. It definitely leaves my skin feeling very soft and smooth. I can’t really comment at this point about visible results because I don’t think that 5 days is enough time to see the kind of results that a skin product might provide, but I do think that with regular ongoing use this product would definitely make a difference to the overall appearance and brightness of my skin. I would be happy to buy this and keep using it, it’s not too expensive and you don’t need to use much.

    Thanks again for the chance to try this product, I’ve often thought I’d like to try something from Skin Doctors :-)

  39. Alicia Webster says:

    I am really surprised at how effective this product is, especially since it is not a product that I would have ever purchased on my own. But after using the sample product for five days, I can honestly say that I am impressed. Upon receipt of the sample, I dabbed a bit on the inside of my forearm to test for skin sensitivity, and when it began tingling, I thought, “Uh oh, I am not sure that this product will work on my sensitive facial skin”, but I was determined to give it a go. The first thing I noticed was the subtle fruity scent, which I love. I am one of those people that even if a product works fabulously, I won’t buy it if it smells bad or medicinal. But this cream smells like fresh strawberries with a tinge of apple (to me anyway). I was also enormously pleased by the light texture of the cream, and the fact that it absorbs into the skin immediately with no greasy residue. After the trial period, my skin is noticeably softer, younger-looking, and more even in tone and texture, and I have fewer breakouts (which is not a stated benefit of the product, but it works for me !) I have no complaints whatsoever about the product, and plan on buying my own full-size jar. The only thing that I will do differently from here on out, is to use it only at night, rather than twice a day. I am always in the sun in the daytime, and I don’t want to increase my sun-sensitivity by using it during the day. And by using it only at night, it will last longer too !

  40. Helen Chand says:

    This product is absolutely amazing. I have used Skin Doctors creams before for small spider veins on cheeks and side of nose and this cream has surpassed it in just 5 days. My pores are smaller, wrinkles finer, spider veins paler and skin super smooth with a radiant glow.
    The cream itself is very pleasant. It goes on smoothly and its fragrance is not at all offensive. For some reason I thought it would be.
    The cream has not made my skin tingle but I was out in the sun today and my face did feel more sensitive. So the warning about increased sensitivity in the sun should be heeded.
    So far I have had no peeling.
    I really am amazed at the results in 5 days so by 6 weeks it should be fabulous.
    Thank you for this opportunity.

  41. I have been using the gamma hydroxy cream for 5 days not and must say that I am quite pleased with the results. The cream is light and goes on quite smoothly, and a little bit goes a long way. My skin feels tighter and much much smoother and, even though it has only been 5 days, I do believe that there has been an improvement with the small lines and wrinkles around my lips and eyes. I am looking forward to using the cream for another few weeks and seeing the full results. Thankyou for the opportunity to trial this product.

  42. Michelle Zintschenko says:

    Having to report on this product after only a few days of use, I have not had the opportunity yet to notice a huge difference to my skin. I have experienced a little peeling however in the dry zone on the side of my face between the cheek and my ear. My face also feels softer.
    When I first applied the product, I had a cut on my finger and it stung like crazy so make sure you do keep it away from sensitive areas. Like most people, I had to assume when to apply it twice a day as the instructions did not make it clear where it goes in your daily routine. I applied it first, followed by moisturizer and foundation with sunscreen.
    The product has a pleasant smell and a nice consistency that soaks straight into the skin. I will continue to use this product until the sample is finished to see what further results it produces to dertemine whether or not I will purchase it.

  43. It was great to have the opportunity to review this product. This product ticked a lot of boxes for me. While it is still early days, I feel my skin is already smoother, softer and more even after regular use. I look forward to continued improvement with longer use! But to enable that to happen in my busy life, it also needs to be easy and quick to use, which this certainly is! So easy to smooth on morning and night, and it doesn’t slow me down getting ready for work, or getting into bed at the end of a long day!

    Gamma Hydroxy definitely appeals to me as the idea of a harsh chemical peel is somewhat scary! This cream is gentle and soothing with no abrasive elements. I will be telling my friends and family about it. So, overall I would say Gamma Hydroxy is ticking not just most but all of my boxes. Thanks again, Skin Doctors and Beauty and Lace!

  44. Have been using the product now for four days and am pleased to report that I have noticed improvement in my skin tone.

    My skin feels smoother, has a nice glow to it and overall, feels softer.

    The first day I used the cream, I think I applied too much! I didn’t realize that a little goes a long way, and because I applied the cream too thickly, I noticed my skin felt a little greasy. When applying for the second time in the evening, I used much less and problem solved, no greasiness.

    I have continued to use the product daily before moisturizing & have found it to be good.

    I look forward to seeing whether there is an even greater improvement in my skin tone the longer I use the product.

    The only negative thing I will say is that I don’t find the fragrance of the cream to smell nice, but it’s my own personal opinion & it in no way would stop me from purchasing the product, I’m just not too keen on the smell!!

    Thanks Beauty & Lace for the opportunity to trial this great product. For me, so far I’d rate it a 4 out of 5.

  45. Trish Drinkwater (Trish_D) says:

    I was quite impressed by the size of the sample – a really generous jar of soft, white, pleasant smelling cream that goes on easily and economically. I am also impressed with the amount of clarity improvement in the short time I’ve been using the cream.
    The only thing I wasn’t really keen on is the tingling and I was very pleased this was mentioned in the literature that accompanied the product. I’m not a fan of tingling on my skin as having sensitive skin it can be the for runner of a problem. Having been warned in advance I was able to make a judgement about how long the tingling should last.

    I am incredibly impressed with the Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals Company – I sent an email requesting specific information. I am NOT a fan of the nano particle technology and asked for clarification whether there were nano particles in the product.
    I am extremely impressed as there was an answer to my question very quickly, a personal response, not a generic one. I’m delighted that nano partices are NOT used in any of their products.

    At this early stage I am particularly impressed and if I do have a reaction with my sensitive skin it is uually quite early in the use of a new product. SO – well done, Skin Doctors. You really do seem to have an excellent product in your Gamma Hydroxy. If the clarity that is evident in such a short time is any indication it will no doubt be a winning product.

    I am very thrilled that I have been given the opportunity to trial this product and sincerely thank Beauty and Lace and Skin Doctors for the opportunity. The early signs are excellent for a really good product that lives up to its promise. Thank you.

  46. I was really excited to receive this product to trial.
    I received the 15ml trial size in a sturdy clear glass pot with a silver screw on lid. The container is very solid and would be great if you were packing it for travelling. Especially if you were headed overseas and were worried about more flimsy containers breaking in transit.
    The cream has a very unique scent. To me its a mix of a lolly type scent and floral. This white cream is very thick. So think that you could turn the pot upside down without any fear of the cream falling out. A little goes a long way and this cream spreads and absorbs well so i feel that after using this product for the past 5 days and still having plenty left in the pot that this 15ml pot would probably last me for about 3 weeks.
    My first application of this product was at night before going to bed. When I woke the following morning i was amazed to see that my skin appeared much smoother and had a glow. I thought I must be crazy but found that each application meant more improvement. Now im at day 5 im very impressed although i am finding for some odd reason the the skin on the bridge of my nose has become a little sore and dry. The rest of my face is fantastic and its really loving this cream. I do suffer with sensitive skin issues but i have so far found this product to be very gentle and other then the bridge of my nose there has been no issues with sensitive skin.
    I will for certain repurchase this product and wish that this trial was a month long rather then 5 days.

    Thank you skin Doctors and Beauty and Lace

  47. I have only been using this for a few days, but was pleasantly suprised that I had no adverse reaction to this product, as I have extremely sensitive skin.
    It is only early days, but my skin already feels smoother, and it will be interesting to see how much it improves over the next few days.

  48. Thank you for the opportunity to trial Gamma Hydroxy. I waited the whole week before submitted response,as at the beginning I did have a slight problem with tingling, as I do have sensitive skin. But over the course of a couple of days that settled down.

    It’s true a little goes a long way with this product, and that took a little getting used to, but it was great under make up.

    My face have several skin cancer scars, I haven’t noticed a change as yet.. but in saying that it has only been a week. But the good thing it had no reaction…

    On my nose especially I have had quite a bit of skin cut out and this was the one area I was concerned about… No problems…

    I will be recommending Skin Doctors to all my friends without a doubt.

    Thank you both Beauty and Lace and Skin Doctors for this opportunity to trial this wonderful product.
    I would recommend this Skin Doctors Product to any woman without a doubt.

  49. Many apologies for a delayed review… I was awaiting the birth of my first bub and ended up in hospital for over a week so hence only came home on wednesday to a back-log of mail!!!
    So, to the review…I have to admit the cream is pretty amazing. I felt a slight tinge when applying the cream and did notice a little redness of my skin within a day or two of using it but since then my skin is so amazingly soft after five days! I do have a few fine lines around the eyes which unfortunately I have not noticed any improvement there…maybe improvement comes over a period of time?
    But all in all, thankyou so much for the opportunity to review the cream…i will definitely reccommend it for anyone looking to improve the overall appearance of their skin :)

  50. Rose Ellis says:

    I have been trialling Gamma Hydroxy for the past 5 days. Here is the good, and the not-so-good.

    The Good
    - It is difficult to say after only a few days, but I do believe it is making my pores less noticeable and my skin smoother. I am always taken by surprise when a beauty product does what it says it will do, and in this case (on my combination skin) it seems to do just that!
    - It’s (I believe) Australian owned and made
    - I didn’t experience any adverse reactions although my skin can be quite sensitive

    The Not-So-Good
    - The product remains on your face in an oily, shiny way for quite awhile. I don’t like the feel of it on my skin and it smells (not too strongly) of chemicals.
    - I don’t know if it is tested on animals, the packaging says nothing (which usually means that it is) but the internet tells me that Skin Doctors products are not usually tested on animals. I need to be sure.

    Conclusion: I will definitely finish the sample I was provided, but I don’t know that I would buy more of this product at this stage. However, if I was sure it was not tested on animals I would absolutely recommend it to my friends who are perhaps a bit older than myself.

    • Hi Rose, I have been in contact with Skin Doctors and can confirm they do not test their products on animals. I hope this helps answer your concerns.

      • Trish Drinkwater (Trish_D) says:

        Hi, Lace,
        I was extremely impressed when I sent Skin Doctors an email and got a personal reply – they did confirm that they don’t test their products on animals, as they have told you. I was wondering whether companies displaying the “Cruelty Free” logo actually have to PAY for the right to display? If so, some of them could prefer to make the product less expensive to the consumer by not paying.
        No idea whether this assumption is correct or not.
        Great to know they don’t test on animals though.
        Thanks again for the great opportunity.
        Trish.

      • Rose Ellis says:

        Thanks Lace, that is fantastic to know!

  51. I was really excited to trial Gamma Hydroxy and was very pleasantly surprised at the sample size provided. I’ve been using the cream twice daily and can truly say that I can feel it working. I found the cream had a lovely scent and nice texture on my skin. I experienced some minor tingling after I had applied the cream, but this was not unpleasant. My skin has felt beautifully smooth since using Gamma Hydroxy. I have some small pigmentation on my face and I look forward to seeing the difference this cream will continue to make with ongoing use. I would highly recommend the use of Gamma Hydroxy to others.

  52. i have been trialling the skin doctors Gamma hydroxy for 5 days now too. I must say, i am pleasantly surprised by noticable results.

    on first application i did find quite a bit of the ‘tingling’ sensation, which i was a little worried about, but it was just that i’ve never used anything like this previously.

    i’ve been using the cream at night (after removing make-up) and in mornings. I really wasnt expecting such great results (even though i’m a huge fan of skin doctors (i have been using the skin doctors zit zapper for years, for stubborn acne that i have).

    i do have quite a bit of acne scarring and i believe that so far, the gamma hydroxy has DEFINITELY helped give my skin a new ‘glow’ and reduced the size of my pores. It kind of exfoliates the skin overnight, and i noticed that my face the next morn, looked like it had a kind of renewed look about it. After applying make up, my skin seemed firmer!!! a result i was very pleasantly surprised with!!

    To sum up, skin doctors gamma hydroxy does make significant differences to acne prone skin. I would highly recommend it to family and friends. I think that there are higher priced items on the market that do a lot less, therefore i would happily buy this product, as it’s value for money in my opinion.

    cant believe that this trial came with a 30%off discount on future skin doctors purchase of gamma hydroxy! How generous and wondeful!!! Well done skin doctors… keep up the great products :) ))

  53. oh and THANK YOU B&L!!!! X

  54. Lisa Mckenzie says:

    Thankyou Beauty and Lace for giving me the opportunity to try this cream,this is day 5 and have noticed a subtle difference in my skin it seems to be a little firmer and my skin is starting to flake in some spots.I have sensitive skin and it has not irritated it at all,the cream goes a long long way and you need to use only a little ,it does tingle a bit but that was to be expected,the scent is different but not unpleasant,I will be looking forward to the result after the 2 week mark as it says on the instructions ,I will continue to use the rest of the cream I have left and also try it on the sunspots on my right hand ,I will update this review at the 2 week mark.

  55. Christine L says:

    Hi, I have enjoyed using Gamma Hydroxy and am happy I was given the opportunity to trial it. I have definitely noticed improvement on my skin tone on my face and will happily continue to use it. My skin feels a lot more smoother and it looks healthier. A little bit goes a long way and I have now started applying it to my decollegate area (near my collar bones) as I have always been conscious about wearing necklaces due to my uneven skin tone around that area! However, I agree with a comment posted above. If it hasn’t been tested on animals then I would highly recommend this product to my friends and family.

  56. Cherie Thompson says:

    Hi there,

    I am happy with the Gamma Hydroxy sample. It is bigger than I had imagined it would be. Lovely packaging!

    I am young and I probably don’t need this cream, however my fiancé has acne scarring. I have applied it to his skin over the past 5 days, twice a day. I have noticed that is has evened out his skin tone and the scarring has noticeably faded. He says that it absorbs very quickly into his skin. I have noticed that his skin is feeling much more softer than prior to using the product. He did complain that the tingling was felt for a little while, but it was not painful. He has a few areas on his face which are affected with acne, and these spots stung when the cream was applied, however there was no negative affect on his skin.

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this product for quick and noticeable change. It has served successfully to even the skin tone and fade acne scaring. Great product, highly recommended! Thank you for the free trial!

    Cherie

  57. Hi,

    Have been using the sample for the last few days. Have noticed a big difference in the smoothness of my skin. Actually feels like I have just exfoliated!!

    Was surprised at how big the sample is. Gives me a real good chance to really trial the products.

    Not too keen on the smell though.

    Have noticed a differance in the millia on my face which I am very excited about!!

    Will definately be using this product again.

  58. This product is wonderful, I have been using it for about 5 days – twice daily and my skin feels great! It has quite a thick texture with feels nice when applied to my face + neck, I have noticed my acne scars are slightly faded so with continued use I hope they disappear completely.

    I didn’t really like the tingling feeling when I used it the first couple of times but that seems to have gone, now I just get smooth skin and I haven’t been using an exfoliator. I guess this does its job well! Also, the scent reminds me of that sweet artificial cherry smell, not a fan of it but it doesn’t linger once rubbed into the skin.

    The sample size is pretty big and should last me a month, by that time I hope I can reap all the benefits of this fabulous cream!

    Thanks Beauty and Lace for the trial oppportunity.

  59. Through the Beauty and Lace website, I was given the opportunity to trial the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy cream. At first, I was skeptical on how quickly this product would work and even if it would work at all.

    On the Skin Doctors website, they claim this product is ‘A new generation in cosmetic skin resurfacing for the best results possible without a chemical peel! Gamma Hydroxy dramatically smoothes the appearance of acne scarring, wrinkles and the visible signs of skin ageing’.

    Luckily I don’t have acne scarring, too many wrinkles (yet!) or many visible signs of skin ageing. I do however have quite a large amount of redness on my face, along with an increasing number of freckles with some broken capillaries over my cheeks as well. It has been these factors that have made me feel uncomfortable to go out in public without make up on.

    I applied the cream to my face and neck after cleansing in the mornings and evenings, and didn’t feel the need to use my normal moisturiser. Moisturiser can be applied if your skin is becoming dry or flaky, which mine was not. Some users have noted a slight tingling feeling after applying the cream, I did’t experience this.

    After using this product for 5 days, I have already noticed a difference in the appearance of the skin on my face as well as the texture. My skin is clearer and brighter and is now a lot smoother when I run my fingers over it.

    I am confident that with continual use, my skin will continue to improve and will hopefully get to a level where I feel comfortable to leave the house without make up.

    Please note: This product can be used over your face, neck, hands or any other place on your body where you want to see an improvement in appearance of the skin.

    Also, it is also recommended to use sunscreen when going out in the sun whilst using this product

  60. Michelle Vamvas says:

    I’ve used the product for the past three days only, but there already are some real positives for me.
    Initially, I felt tingling sensation when I applied the cream, but it wasn’t painful. I like that only a very little amount is needed to be applied for full coverage, making it excellent value for money.
    Because it is only early days, I can’t say that I’ve noticed any dramatic changes, but I do have a few acne scars that I would love to have faded, so these areas in particular are what I am hoping to achieve results in.
    I like that the product isn’t tested on animals; that’s a real plus for me.
    I really look forward to seeing an increased improvement in my skin as I continue to use this cream.
    Many thanks for the opportunity to review!!

  61. I have to say that i am so glad that i was one of the lucky ones who got to trial this amazing Gamma Hydroxy skin care product, from Skin Doctors. I first thought that i was going to end up with lots of falkey skin. But i didnt , and I liked that it can also be used on the back of hands; as this is often where the really visible first signs of ageing occur. I used the cream after cleansing and i have to say that i like the way the cream felt. Its thick and creamy with very little to no scent. I used the cream the way i use my moisturiser. It was very easy to apply and there was no residue and my skin felt so soft and moisturised . And i also used it on the back of my hands. I have to say that I love this cream. I didnt need to moisturise after using the cream. As some things said about this cream is that it can dry your skin. I didnt have this problem. And I have to say that i can see results. I also see the results on the backs of my hands. And both my fine lines and some of my deeper wrinkles have now been reduced. I love the way my skin feels. It feels plumped up and its very soft. And my hands look great. No more crinkley looking hands. I am very pleased with this cream and have already been asked by two of my friends; What have i done to my skin?? And i was only too pleased to tell them its Gamma Hydroxy by Skin Doctors. I love the way my skin looks and feels and to get this result in just on 5 days of use is amazing. And i will be sticking with this cream as the results are showing and that makes me a very happy woman. And being abit older than some; I am always on the look out for good anti-ageing products. I have often read lots of articles and thought these sound good ; Then once you try it you find that it does nothing. But this is not the case with this amazing cream. I have also seen a great reduction in the pigmentation that i have had. I didnt have alot, but what i did have is barely noticable. I am very pleased that this cream does what it says it does and to be able to use in on my face and hands is an added bonus. And i am so very pleased with the results that i am now a convert and will highly recommend it to others.. And i am glad that i was so very lucky to have had this amazing chance to trial a product that works; and with no side effects at all.Only lovely soft skin with reduced lines and pigmentation. And i would love to thank you Anna for allowing me to take part in this trial.

  62. Firstly, thank you for letting me trial this product. I have read all of the other reviews and everyone seems to really love the product. I have to say I didn’t like the feel of it on my face. I didn’t feel tingling as the pamphlet suggested, it felt really warm, almost hot a few minutes after applying. That lasted about 10 mins and then my face felt like it was tightening up in a very uncomfortable way. That lasted about 2 hours and then my face felt normal. I only used it the once as I really didn’t want to go through it again. I have since passed it onto a friend for her to try. If I had known my skin would have reacted in that way, I would have just skipped this trial. Thank you anyway for letting me give it a go.

  63. Thanks for the oppurtunity to review this product & I hope I can do it justice in my review.Firstly I didn’t have a problem with the tingling of the skin,maybe I am just thick skinnned! A litle redness over the nose & cheek area but it subsides as the day wears on & now I know I can use my moisturiser after applying the cream this redness may disappear.Haven’t really noticed any drastic changes to my skin,could be a little lighter shade of “age spots” but as results are attained over a longer period of time will just keep using to see if it can perform miracles.I did notice my skin feels softer and hope this is a benefit that will last.

  64. Thank you for the opportunity to try Gamma Hydroxy –Skin Doctors product. My husband and I actually tried these product for a few days now.I noticed some improvements on his skin and mine ( our skin feel softer). We did not have any side effects or any allergy reactions to it . No peelings has occured yet. For acne scarring and reduces pore size—Umm,maybe a little bit. With regards to wrinkles, it’s not applicable to me. I would give Gamma Hydroxy a go in the future use. xox

  65. Caroline Lissaman says:

    I have lost weight very impatiently and my skin has sagged. Gamma Hydroxy is my chance to look beautiful again. I have started on my face and already my skin is firmer and radiant. I will definitely be buying Skin Doctors for the rest of my body!

  66. Katrina Freckleton says:

    Firstly I would like to say that I have never used a “anti-ageing cream” before and so was a bit sceptical. Having worked outside for most of my life and enjoying being outdoors, I did however, realize in the last few years the damage done to my skin and had looked into ways to improve my skin and the pigmentation that has appeared. So thank you for this opportunity and I was delighted to to have been chosen for this trial.

    I received my sample on wednesday and read through the instructions. I applied a ‘test’ area on my right cheek from the cheekbone to my jaw before beginning the trial the next morning.
    I did notice the smell, not unpleasant but not perfumed and being quite thick, it went on very smoothly and I was quite light handed for the first time.

    Day 1, The first five minutes felt a bit of a sensation, maybe not tingling, not uncomfortable but I was aware of it. After 15 minutes I had an unusual taste in my mouth, which disappeared after a bit and was only on the first day. Day 2 was fine had no sensation and I felt a fine papery texture on my skin, kind of like soemone had blown a very fine powder over me but after that I had no tingeling or effects. Day 4. I over applied and felt a stronger sensation and a bit greasy which didnt last long.

    I must also say that I had no need to apply a moisturizer after using the product which was unusual for me as I have dry skin.

    After using the product on Day 5, I did notice that my skin was cleaner looking and more even toned. As to the pigmentation or age spots , I believe they have started to lighten but I think a longer use will reduce them and as I did not use all the product during this trial, I will continue to use to see if a reduction in the appreance of spots on my face occurs.

    I would consider buying this product as a little goes along way and I am happy with using it and the results achieved so far.

    Thank you!

  67. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to trial this cream, and have just finished 5 days of its application twice daily i.e. morning and night.

    After only 5 days I am really excited about this product! I can genuinely see a visible improvement in my skin already. It should be noted that the improvement (at this stage) is only slight – it hasn’t transformed my complexion completely and/or addressed all my skin concerns (e.g., pigmentation, acne scarring and fine lines)! But what it has done is given me hope that this product (and perhaps the Skin Doctors range in general) actually performs as it says it does, and will deliver on its promises.

    I am 35 years now and have, over the years, tried many different skin care ranges. I rarely recall noticing any visible difference with any of them (irrespective of how long their usage), and I certainly have never noticed an improvement in my skin condition in as litte as 5 days.

    So far what the Gasmma Hydroxy Resurfacing cream has done for me is made my skin appear a little brighter (i.e. less dull). I also believe it to be reducing my pore size. I have suffered from reasonably large pores on my nose and surrounding face, and accompanying visible blackheads, since my teens. Whilst they are not gone completely after 5 days use of the cream, I do believe the blackheads appear less visible and my pores smaller.

    I like the texture and lightly scented fragrance of this cream. I even enjoy the minor tingling sensation on application, which reassures me it is getting to work below my skin’s surface!

    Thank you Beauty and Lace, and thank you Skin Doctors. I look forward to continuing to use this cream and seeing what (if any) further improvements it may yield!

  68. Day 5 and my skin looks great!
    I felt slight tingling day 1 but that went by the second. My skin feels softer and pores are slightly reduced.
    I look forward to watching my skin improve over the next few weeks.

    One thing I’d like to point out is nowhere on the packaging does it say if you leave it on or wash off? All exfoliants I’ve used in the past are wash off – so that might confuse some people.

    I really do love this product! Thank you Beauty and Lace for the trial xxoo

  69. Thank you Beauty & Lace for giving me the opportunity to try Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy skin care product. I have been using it now for 5 days and definitely have noticed a difference – my skin feels much softer and looks brighter. I feel sure that with longer use my skin will continue to improve. I have had no side effects and also there has been no peeling.

  70. Renee Ballantyne says:

    I have used this for 6 days straight now and find it does leave some residue on the skin even after having it on all day. It does leave my skin hydrated, soft and i have noticed some evening out of the tone. I haven’t seen any difference in the fine lines around my eye area. All in all thanks for the trial and I would give it a 3 out of 5.

  71. I tried this product and have noticed no difference in my skin. I have even had some breakouts which has caused a problem. I found it to also be unpleasant in smell and quite thick. Hopefully my skin will clear up soon but it makes me hesitant to keep using the product. Thank you for the opportunity anyway :-)

  72. Thanks for the opportunity to trial this product.

    I was impressed with the size as I expected something a lot smaller for the few days required before reviewing. The packaging was good with a little tub inside a branded box. The tub itself had an inner lid that is great for keeping the product fresh. The cream was quite thick and had almost no discernable smell (good). When I applied it to my face and neck the thick cream went on very well, I didn’t need a lot and it was absorbed in under a minute. There was not much tingling and my skin is usually quite sensitive so I was impressed. I was then free to apply my moisturiser over the top a little while later. It was confusing where Gamma Hydroxy would fit into my skin care routine as the instructions were scarse so I assumed it was like a serum. It felt very nice on and my skin was immediately smoother. Over the week or so I’ve used it I have noticed a slight effect on my fine lines however I think this kind of product needs more time to show its full potential so I’m going to continue using it morning and night and then see if it makes a difference. After that I may purchase it when I run out. It definetely helped lock in moisture around problerm areas without having an oily residue. Even my chin that is kind of dry and oily at the same time has evened out a bit. My age spots haven’t budged but I’m hopeful with further use this may improve.

    I’d say 3.5 out of 5. This may go up to 4/5 if it continues to achieve the results I’m after – noticeably younger skin.

  73. Tracy Faulkner says:

    Hi, i am sorry to say that the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy skin care product made my skin feel like it was burning it… I guess i reacted to it… I tried to apply it on 3 separate occasions with the same reaction… SORRY!!!

  74. I’m sorry my review is later than everyone else’s, my product took a while to arrive!

    First impressions: Neat little container (I am aware this is just a sample pot, if the full size one is just a bigger one, brilliant!), lots to read through in the warning/info page, the product had a distinct smell.

    The product itself: I personally had to only use this once a day, it was too harsh on my skin to be used twice a day as recommended, overall it did seem to start to smooth out some of my fine lines, but left my skin feeling oily after application, this did improve a little as the day went on, but not significantly. I also didn’t like the smell of the product, it is hard to describe but definitely more on the chemical side of things.

    Overall I would probably not use the product again, unless I get more significant results finishing off the sample pot. The smell and feel are not something I could tolerate. This is definitely something you need to try before jumping out and buying it, I think it is something that not everybody could use.

    I give this about a 2.5/5. Thank-you for the opportunity to try this product!

  75. I have been using this product twice a day since receiving it. the sample was a generous size and I will continue to use it until it is finished. I am not noticing a huge difference but it feels pleasant on my skin with only very slight occasional tingling. I have fair, sensitive skin and was a little anxious about using it but the instructions stated that a few weeks use should produce results with smoother refreshed skin, so I am still testing it.

  76. Used the product for the last 5 days twice a day and have found it to be pleasant scent, non oily moisturiser with a smooth finish. It suits my skin as I am fair and while not noticing a difference in lines it is a product I will continue to use. Best product I have tried for a long time. 4 out of 5.

  77. I have been using the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy for 5 days now and I really like the results so far. It is a nice cherry-licorice smelling cream that is quite rich and hydrating. It hasn’t caused any irritation at all which was of concern to me being a little skin sensitive. For me it absorbs really well into my dry skin and makes my skin feel soft and smooth with a subtle glow. I was told 2 days ago that I looked younger so I’m thinking that the Gamma Hydroxy must be working! Thanks Beauty and Lace for letting me try this lovely cream.

  78. I have been using this product for the past 5 days and am extremely happy to report as someone with terribly sensitive skin, not only no reaction but an already slightly improved appearance! The skin is thick and a little goes a long way as too much just made me a bit shiny. A slight tingle after applying which did not hurt and no offensive smell either which was nice. My skin looks clearer and definitely feels softer. Am looking forward to continued use and to see how good my skin really can look now!

  79. I have used Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy for the last 5 days (thanks for accepting me for testing). I have been quite impressed with the quality of the product. I have dehydrated skin that is always flaky, prompting people to ask me constantly why I don’t use an exfoliator (the answer being they usually don’t help, and cause my sensitive skin to flare up badly), however now I have found the answer to my prayers! This cream amazingly didn’t upset my delicate skin, and it left me with much smoother, almost flake free skin. A little goes a long way, making it a very economical product – always a big plus. I have no complaints at all, and will be continuing to use it going forward.

  80. I would like to give the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy a rave review! After 5 days of application both morning and night, I have noticed a huge difference in my skin condition. My skin had minimal blemishes prior to starting use, the cream seems to have made me skin smoother and opened up my pores, leaving my face absolutely radiant! Thank you for the opportunity to take part in this trial, I think I have found a brand that I will use for my future skin care!

  81. I’ve been using the Gamma Hydroxy cream for 4 days now. Some days I’ve used it twice a day and only once on the other days. I have quite sensitive skin and I was concerned about using it twice a day every day. When I started using the cream I had a couple of big awful pimples on my chin (nothing like a bit of stress to bring those out!) and I must admit that after using the cream on them twice that by the second night they both looked so much better.

    The texture of the cream is nice to put on and it soaked into my skin easily. I’m not sure that I’m keen on the smell, as to me it smells quite chemically and as I’ve been trying to use more natural products recently that concerned me a bit. I’m also not keen on the jar packaging because although it looks good, I’ve always been told that bottle and tubes are better because they don’t let the air and bacteria get into the product as quickly.

    I’ve got reddish skin on my cheeks, which I always try to cover up with make up and I do think that the redness looks like it has decreased a bit, which is lovely. I also don’t wear foundation every day, but have once since I started using the Gamma Hydroxy and it went on smoother and looked better than usual.

    Overall, I think I like this product and am interested to see the results after finishing the generous sample. $50 is a lot for me to spend on a product. I’ll wait and see the final results or maybe see if I can get some Gamma Hydroxy on special some time.

    Thank you so much Skin Doctors and of course Beauty and Lace for letting me be a part of this review >:o)

  82. Kerrie McDermid says:

    I have been using Gramma Hydroxy cream for a few days now and Ican tell a huge improvement already. I didn’t expeerience any tingling which was good, and i felt my face was smoother.
    I wasnt sure if I was suppose to moisturise after applying the cream so i didn.t I don’t belive I needed to clog up my pores with 2 more cream, plus I didn’t want to decrease the effectiveness.
    I found that it easily soaked into my skin, and that a little goes a long way. Im sure the size bottle that i received will last a long time.
    thanks for letting me take part in this trial – I would rate this product 5 out of 5.

  83. Annabel Lazar says:

    Firstly, thank you Beauty and Lace for letting me participate in this trial.
    I’ve never heard of Gamma Hydroxy by Skin Doctors, but I’m so glad I was able to try it! This product is fantastic and worked so well with my skin. After 5 days of using this morning and evening, my skin is much less dull and so much more radiant! My skintone is even and less oily too. It really has resurfaced my skin and made it a lot softer than before. This product, coupled with my other skincare products, has transformed my skin! It is practically glowing!
    I like this brand so much that I’ve bought other products from Skin Doctors.

    Thanks again B&L!! x

  84. Juanita Thorn says:

    Thanks B&L for the opportunity to trial this product, it is a product that I’ve wondered about often, whether or not to try it.
    I used this consecutively and twice a day for 6 days. I also was very pleased with the sample size, as you don’t need a lot of the cream for every application, so even though it’s only 15mls, I will get some good use from it.
    The cream itself is quite thick in texture and applies easily over my skin. And has a pleasant scent, not too overpowering, and not as chemical-y smelling as what I was expecting. I do get a slight tingling sensation with each and every application (so hopefully it’s working). I wasn’t sure how this was to be used – what order in my routine as I use face serum, followed by face oil, then moisturiser. So I decided on night time I just applied the Skin Doctor’s Gamma Hydroxy onto my cleansed and toned skin, then of a morning I would apply this after my serum. So I’d gp cleanse/tone, serum, gamma hydoxy, normal moisturiser (I knocked out the face oil of a morning). I did find that I needed the extra moisturiser in the morning as the gamma hydroxy cream was not hydrating enough to apply my foundation over.
    Over the 6 days I haven’t yet noticed any discernible changes in my skin, it may be a little smoother but that’s about it. In saying tht I’ve also had a few sunspots frozen during the past 2 weeks, so this makes my skin look a little more red and uneven in tone.
    I am going to continue using the remainder of this product and fingers crossed I will see some more major skin changes.
    I’ve read every one elses reviews and everyone seems to have very positive things to say about the cream and about noticeable differences, I wish I had the same experience, although mine isn’t exactly bad or negative, maybe just a bit more time is needed for my skin.

  85. I was lucky enough to have received a 15ml sample of Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy in the mail to which I’m grateful. This product works. My skin is combination, I’m 37 years old, so have a few fine lines, wrinkles, light acne scarring & pigmentation typical to a woman my age. The product is easily applied. I had no trouble evenly applying complete coverage to my face and neck. It dried instantly leaving my skin feeling smooth, fresh & hydrated, without any slimy residue, dry or shiny patches some products can leave behind. My skin tone was visibly smoother in a couple of days & was shine-free all day. I was able to apply my everyday make-up straight away & found as the trial continued I was using a lot less foundation & concealer as the product smoothed the texture of problem areas I usually have to cover up. I would definitely recommend this product to any woman who feels their skin is being marked by wear and tear brought on by ageing, scarring & sun damage & wants visibly smoother, younger looking skin. Or likes to see quick results from an easy no fuss application which also leaves the skin feeling & looking fresh. Thank-you Beauty & Lace & Skin Doctors (-:

  86. Patricia Chant says:

    Thank you so much for including me in the Skin Doctors” gamma hydroxy. trial I have been using the product for many days now & find that I can see a big difference in my face.
    Firstly my face is not nearly as flaky, having a very fair complexion & being burnt by the sun over & over as a child my skin is always shedding the top layers of skin even though I am always exfoliating.My Dr had me using a special cream ( Solaraze) for my nose but now find that the gamma hydroxy is working just as well ( and not nearly as risky or expensive as the Solaraze cream) so have been able to give the Drs cream a miss altogether. I was finding it very hard to wear even a tinted moisturizer because of the dried skin on the surface of my face.
    I do find though that I still need another moisturizer during the day & a night cream as well as the Skin Doctors treatment because of my very dry skin but with the combination of the gamma hydroxy & moisturizer’s my face feels so lovey & smooth & looks so much more relaxed than it did before, pores are not nearly as noticeable & the redness has settled a lot.i
    I am almost finished my trial jar so I will definitely be buying a full size container of gamma hydroxy because I know it will take more time to see just what “Skin Doctors” gamma hydroxy cream can do for my complexion.
    Thanks once again for inviting me to try the Skin Doctors gamma hydroxy you did me a big favour

  87. I LOVE Gamma Hydroxy. I was a little concerned because my skin is quite sensitive and breaks into rashes very quickly. Although I felt a slight tingling when I applied Gamma Hydroxy, I had no rashes and no adverse effects. My skin looked brighter and dare I say younger immediately. It gave my skin a bit of a glow – I thinks that’s what made it look younger. I honestly have never used a product where I could see an immediate response before! I’m definately going to continue to use and investigate the othe Skin Doctor products. Many thanks for introducing me to this new product Beauty and Lace!

  88. I was in two minds about applying for this trial as I have sensitive skin and have steered clear of hydroxy products for this reason. However I decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did. I applied the product as directed twice daily and have had no reaction or irritation, just a slight tingling which soon disappears. I will definately continue with this product as 5 days is a little too soon to see full benefits. I do feel my skin is becoming smoother and coincidentally a small skin tag I had on my neck has dropped off! All in all I am impressed with this product and I am so pleased to find a hydroxy product I can use! Fabulous product thumbs up to Skin Doctors.

  89. I have been using Skin Doctiors, gamma hydroxy twice a day since receiving the trial sample. A little goes a long way. The cream has a lovely, velvet texture and leaves my skin feeling smooth and well hydrated. The tingly sensation is a little uncomfortable at first but soon disappears. I have seen no significant change in my fine lines & wrinkles. However, it does state to expect results in 2 to 6 weeks. I will happily continue to use the product and give a final verdict!

  90. My five day trial was up and I have been religiously using Skin Doctors’ Gamma Hydroxy twice a day as suggested and I can say, though still early in the trial process, that I have seen some changes in my skin.
    When I first used it, I like that it has a light scent and not at all over powering. The cream is the thick yet the skin easily absorbs it.
    Yes, there was a slight tingling on my face and neck on my first few usage but slowly subsided after day two.
    I have observed that my pimple marks has lightened and after five days of usage, that my face looks more refreshed and younger looking (I can just imagine a better benefit when I continue using it for more than two weeks). I nw understand what they meant by “having a radiant glow” as now I can go out of the house without putting on so much concelaler or foundation – just a slight face powder and im out and I was even complemented the other day in regards to my fresh looking face and did not even gave the hint that I am 40 yo :)
    Overall, I think after the trial jar, I am looking into buying a full one and will continue using this as part of my routine.
    Thank you Beauty and Lace for introducing this wonderful product and will defintely encourage my sisters and friends to use this.

    Suzi B

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to trial this amazing product.
    I have been very pleasantly surprised with this product. I have used it on my face and upper arms where I am prone to keratosis polaris. It has done a dream job at creating much smoother and clearer looking skin.
    I am definitely going to purchase this when my trial pack runs out. Not only does it work well, it has a pleasant smell, sort of like an SPF smell. Very mild though. The only down fall I would say is the packaging. It is in a tub which leaves you open to cross contamination.
    I must also note that I only used the product of an evening as I felt with all the AHA and BHA my skin would burn in the sun.

    I recommend this product highly.

    Suzi B

  92. I have trialled this fab product for past 6 days I used it twice per day.
    I love Skin Doctors’ Gamma Hydroxy the scent is pleasant and the cream feels amazing on my skin. Sometimes it tingles and sometimes not but only little bit.
    It beautifully soaks into my dry skin making my skin feel great. I didn’t need to use much so this jar will last me 3 weeks.
    I have seen an improvement in my skin it looks and feels firmer, smooth, refreshed and radiant.

    I will continue to use this great product as it is hard to find one that actually works and this one does.
    Thank you Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to trial x

  93. Thanks so much for this trial…I have used it in the past week and must say I wasn’t sure at first with the tingles that I felt but no other side effects and it goes on well and it feels nice on afterwards. I feel after using the product for some time I would notice some great benefits. My skin feels softer most definitely and I will buy the product again in the near future and recommend to friends. Thanks again.

  94. Thanks for letting me trial the Skin Doctors’ Gamma Hydroxy cream. I love the scent and texture and the way it is easy to apply. My skin feels tingly and alive after I use it and I have had comments about how I have a clearer and more glowing appearance. I’ve used it on my face and chest and the skin looks plumper and better than before I used it. It’s a winner!

  95. Andrea Furtado says:

    AM really impressed with the change in my skin after just 5 days of using the Gamma Hydroxy. My skin looks more radiant, lighter acne scars, no adverse reactions at all.
    Very happy with the huge difference in such a short while!
    There was a very slight burning sensation near my nose but no redness at all or any other adverse reaction or breakouts.
    I used the cream after cleansing my sin twice a day. Had no problem with applying foundation on top of it either.
    It has a very slight faint smell but is not chemical at all. Really smoothed down the surface of y skin and seems to give it a glow.
    Cannot recommend this cream highly enough. Will certainly repurchase!

  96. Thanks for my Gamma Hydroxy sample. I have been using it for 6 days now. It has a nice subtle fragrance and absorbs very quickly into my skin. I can’t say that I’m seeing any results or changes in my skin but it does say that it can take a couple of weeks so I’m happy to continue using it to see how it goes.

  97. I have combination/oily skin that’s prone to breakouts with dry area on my forehead. My skin scars easily, leaving dark pigmentation after every pimples. I’ve heard good things about Skin Doctor products and it seemed this Gamma Hydroxy could be the solution for my problems.

    I used it twice a day on my face & neck for 3 days before I stopped using it as suddenly I had huge breakouts! My skin doesn’t like something in it, perhaps an allergic reaction to an ingredients or two. Sad, as I really wanted this to work. Then I remembered reading something about the cream can be used on other parts of me, so I decided to apply it to the back of my hands to see whether it makes any difference.

    Well, it’s too early to tell. I do notice a little flaking/peeling of skin near my fingers. I’m assuming the new/better skin would come out from underneath it…. I find it’s a tad too drying on the sides of my fingers though.

    What I love: the packaging, scent, textures of the cream.

    What I don’t love: apart from the breakout problem, my foundation doesn’t want to stick when being worn on top of it. In other words the cream made my foundation “slides”. Big time. My face looked like it has flesh-coloured army camouflage patterns drawn on it. Once I stopped using the cream & start using my usual moisturiser again the problem disappeared.

    I do think it could be a great product if it suits your skin. I’ll keep on using it on the back on my hands to see whether it has better result than on my face.

  98. I used this as soon as it turned up. In the past I’ve been a big fan of products containing AHAs so I was really keen to give it a go!

    So I used it one evening (under my usual night time moisturiser) and the next morning my skin was noticeably softer. This has continued – I think my skin is much smoother and I think it’s even looking a little finer – so that’s all good.

    I was very naughty and didn’t do a skin patch test and wait for 24 hours but if you have ever had any type of sensitive skin I would recommend you do this.

    The paperwork freaked me out a bit with its warnings of tingling and flaky skin etc but I didn’t have any of that. I did get a little bit of sensitivity in the crease of my nose so I just stopped using it there and it’s been fine.

    Good points: very light scent, and you only need to use a little and it does what it says on the tin.

    Bad points: it adds another step to your beauty routine, because you use this before your moisturiser. Also, because of the AHAs you need to be sure to use good sunblock/protection while you’re using the product.

    For me, those bad points don’t outweigh the good. I’m really happy with this product and I’ll definitely consider buying it in future.

    Thanks to Beauty & Lace for the opportunity to try it – it’s the type of thing I’d never have bought normally.

  99. Effie Bakkalis says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to trial this product.

    The cream is fairly thick so I only needed a small amount to cover the whole of my face. The cream had a very light scent, which I liked. Unlike some other people who have commented, I personally only noticed a tiny bit of tingling and it didn’t bother me at all. I didn’t find the cream to be greasy at all and my skin absorbed it super quickly.

    I used the cream twice a day, and my face does have a clean, looking radiant glow. I am impressed with the results and looking forward to seeing further improvement as I use it more in the future!

  100. Angie Werner says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to try out such a great product.

    Like others have said, a little seems to go a long way! I am really liking the product so far and have been using it at least once a day. My skin tone appears more even and my skin looks more smooth overall. I like the light, pleasant scent that the product had as well.

    I didn’t feel the tingling sensation all of the time when I used the product, but noticed it especially after using certain cleansing products that I have. However, I don’t really mind that feeling, it doesn’t bother me.

    The main thing for me with this product is that it is ESSENTIAL to use some product with SPF after you use this product. AHAs and BHAs can increase your chance of getting sunburned so make sure you use moisturiser with SPF afterward! All in all, a great product that I would recommend to others looking to even out their skin tone and get smoother, more radiant looking skin :)

  101. Thanks for letting me trial this product, I’m so grateful that you did.

    I really can’t believe how soft my skin has become just after 5 days and my skin tone is more even too.

    A little goes a long way as the cream is moderately thick but glides on so easily. The first couple of times I used it, I had a slight tingling feeling on my face but it wasn’t much. After these couple of days I didn’t feel anything. The light scent is pleasant.

    I do recommend using an SPF moisturiser afterwards when going out otherwise you could burn.

    I will definitely putting this product on my shopping list.

  102. catn2kittens says:

    I have very reactive, sensitive skin that becomes very red and angry-looking when I use any AHA products. Gamma Hydroxy does not irritate my skin at all, it seems much more gentle. I am gathering it is a slower process to achieve significant results, but I am happy to go slow and protect my sensitive skin.
    I have been using this for a week, I “melt” the cream slightly between my palms and press it into my skin. I rub any leftover into the backs of my hands. I have not seen a change in the deeper wrinkles in my face, but my hands are looking amazing! Smoother, younger and more even toned.
    I would probably have avoided this cream, thinking it would be too irritating for my skin, so I am very happy i got to trial it and will be purchasing the full sized product, it is very reasonably priced and often on special at my local chemist.

  103. I love this my skin tone is looking so much better, my skin is smoother and I’m really happy with gamma hydroxy I will continue to use it thanks beauty and lace

  104. Thankyou so much for giving me the opportunity to trial Gamma Hydroxy by Skin Doctors. I have sensitive skin and this had no adverse effect on my skin. I wasn’t expecting it to last very long (15ml ) but it goes a long way.

    My skin felt softer it seemed the very next day. After 5 days it felt amazing. I think someone else has already said but it would be god if it could be made with some sun protection. I am very sensitive to the sun also.

    I would definately reccomend this product and will be buying.

  105. Kelley Watson says:

    I love the soft, non-greasy texture that melts into your skin. I found it quite moisturising also which I did not expect. Stupidly I tried this product around the same time as a different moisturiser and I did develop a bit of a reaction. It is gone now so I will try again with the Gamma Hydroxy only. If I still get a reaction I will use it on my decolletage area as I never react to a product there and I need to use a product like this there to help with sun damage!

    Will update on my progress!

  106. Nanny to 6 so far! says:

    Just loving using this product. I have been an avid user of exfoliating products for over 25 yrs, but now that I am older, wanted something less abrasive than scrubs. This cream is definitely the answer.
    I am also using it on my heels.They are in good shape, but summer and open shoes takes its toll. I have spent a fortune over the years on heel balms etc, but this works superbly, so double the benefits with this product.
    I highly recommend it to anyone, in fact I have suggested my daughters buy some!

  107. Thank you so much to Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to give this product a try.

    When I first opened the product I though I would have used the whole tub before the week was out but, I am happy to so that I am amazed at how little you really need to give a good coverage.

    I was worried about how the product would react with my skin as I have sensitive skin but, aside from the initial “tingling” (it was more like stinging to me), it quickly settled down with no redness or residual sensation.

    The reason I was so keen to give this product a try is that I have quite a bit of acne scarring (and a couple of chicken pox scars also) on my face. I was pleasantly surprised at the change in the scarring and overall skin tone over the last week. I imagine that with continued use, it will have a somewhat dramatic effect on my skin.

    I had one slip up with the product when I placed acne cream on my skin below the Skin Doctors cream. The two products must have reacted with one another and I ended up with a burning hot and bright red face. Oops. So if you have sensitive skin like mine, it might be worthwhile doing a spot-test if you intend on applying another product at the same time. ;)

    Once again, I am very grateful to be a part of this review and am looking forward to seeing continued results with the use of this product..

    Thanks Beauty and Lace and Skin Doctors :)

    Krista.

  108. Veronique Holder says:

    I was so happy when my Gamma Hydroxy arrived in the mail i asready to give up on creams but i have to say the first time that i used it i noticed how soft and vibrant my skin was i couldn’t believe it even my husband has commented on how differet my skin looks after 5 days i was amazed on how dfferent my skin felt i will be sticking with this one finally i found a cream that actually works thankyou so much beauty an lace

  109. Tersa Jensen says:

    I have been using this product for the past few days and have to admit that I am seeing a real difference. I suffer from acne scarring and feel that this cream has reduced the damage to my skin. I would recommend this product for any type of scar damage and think it has also imporved the uneven skin tones. I also agree that a little bit goes a long way so a small tub should last a while so good product and good value skin doctors!

  110. Michelle Davis says:

    I have been using Gamma Hydroxy for the last 5 days..

    first day tried, I had a tingly fresh clean feel on my face,,very promising..

    I am amazed at how little you really need to give a good coverage after 5 days of use the jar seems barely used (15ml) great..

    After the 5 days of use my skin seems softer but not a big difference in pore size or noticable changes in acne scarring, my skin feels like there is an amount of oil residue..

    I will continue to use till the end of the jar and at the great coverage that could be a month but will update if I have any changes..

    thanks for the trial it is great…

  111. I have been using my gamma hydroxy for about a week now and here are my thoughts. first off the little glass jar that the product comess in is very nice and elegant looking. the scent of the product reminds me some what of sunscreen. I did not find the instructions t be very clear as it dos not say if you should apply moisturiser after using this product, but i went on the skin doctors website and it says that this product should be applied before your moisturiser.

    After applying gamma hydroxy my skin feels really soft and smooth and i like the fact that it does not dry out my skin and it is gentle. I have not noticed any change in the appearance of my skin tone yet but it does say that it takes a few weeks to notice results. I found this product great for hurrying up the process f getting rid of pimples, when i received the cream i also had a huge pimple appear the same day and after applying the cream for 2 days the pimple was completely gone. i can’t wait to see if this cream gives my skin some more results but so far i am really enjoying using this product.

  112. Narelle Rock says:

    I have now been using this product for 5 days, both morning and night, only need a small amount as it has a thick consistency. Applies to the skin really well, absorbs fast and doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky. There is a slight tingle which is quite refreshing. It has made my skin look a lot more radiant, no massive improvement in the appearance of my skin tone.
    The one thing I disliked about this product is the smell, found it really strong and unappealing, I probably wouldn’t purchase it based on this as I really don’t like the scent of the cream
    thankyou for the chance to trial.

  113. Thanks for the opportunity to trial this! I was pleasantly surprised with the quite large sample we recieved in it’s proper packaging as since it was only a 5 day use before review I thougth we might only recieve a 5 day supply in plastic satchets. I’ve been using this morning and night each day and found a little goes a very long way. The cream is thick which makes it nice though it has a strange scent which I can’t decide if i find pleasant or not – it reminds me of cherry medicine, but disappears after application.

    The one thing that bothers me is that I had been applying this at night and then drinking out of the bathroom tap to take my medications, and so the water washed some of the product into my mouth and my tongue would go tingly and then numb! I’m pretty sure this is a bad thing! Since then though I have been careful to apply the product last thing before bed!

    After using this product for only 5 days I haven’t noticed a lot of difference. My skin does feel nice and smooth and perhaps a little clearer, but I’m not sure if this is reality or me just looking to find the results now. I am going to continue using the product and I expect better results will be seen after a longer time period.

  114. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such a large sample of Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy. The packaging is nice and clean, the bottle is easy to open and has a good amount in there.

    The application of the cream is very smooth. I felt that I only needed to use a little amount to cover my face. It absorbed nicely and didn’t leave a greasy feeling at all, so that’s a huge plus for me! The product itself was gentle on my skin and didn’t cause any irritation for me which was great. After the 5 days I felt my skin was looking more clean. I think I would have to keep using it for more than 5 days to see results, but I’m happy with how the product made my skin feel so will keep using it! I will be looking out for other Skin Doctors products now I think. Thanks Beauty and Lace for this review opportunity.

  115. Corrin Fleming-Morris says:

    Thank you Beauty & Lace and Skin Doctors for letting me try this great product!
    I found i didnt need to use a lot of the cream as it spreads really well and left my skin feeling nice and smooth.
    On day 2 my husband commented that my skin was looking great, it had a nice glow to it,
    On day 3 i came out in a real itchy rash near my jawline – but i had a feeling that using my exfoliating face wash twice a day was to blame (I do have rather sensitive skin) I stopped using the Gamma Hydroxy & facewash till the itching subsided.
    I restarted using the Gamma Hydroxy again with a more gentle face wash and havent had the itching since.
    I dont know if i am imagining it but i feel that my fine lines at my eyes have softened and also my laugh lines arent as deep anymore, i also had a skin dag (i think that is what you call them?) near my eye which is just about gone.
    I will certainly be buying another jar once my sample runs out, i love it and would confidently recommend it to my family and friends :)

  116. I have been trialing the Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream for the past five days. My first impression was that the sample pack was a very generous size which will allow me to use the cream for several weeks, which is the amount of time recommended before you will see results. The cream is rich and non scented which i prefer and it left my skin feeling hydrated. There is usually a slight tingling sensation upon application which was expected. I look forward to seeing the results over the next few weeks and am interested in looking into other products by the Skin Doctors!
    Thank you to Beauty & Lace and Skin Doctors for allowing me to trial the Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream.

  117. Thank you for the opportunity to try Gamma Hydroxy.
    I have been using it well and this is reflected in the results. Not much cream is required at a time and I found the smell to be fine. There is only a very slight tingle and my skin definitely feels refreshed. My skin appears to be starting to feel and look slightly better, and I’m sure with more use this will continue.
    Thanks again.

  118. Wow! I must say I’m impressed. I did not expect to see much results after using Gamma Hydroxy for only 5 days. However, the change has been very noticeable. I was a little concerned to start with when I felt my skin tingle, but I now realise it was hard at work removing dead cells which previously wouldn’t budge using scrubs. My skin is now much smoother and even toned than it has been for many many years. The sample jar (I was only expecting sachets) was easy to use as only a small amount is required and I have ample left to last me at least a couple more weeks, so it really is great value. I will continue using it and can’t wait to see even more difference in a couple more weeks.
    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to trial and review Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy!

  119. Thank you Beauty & Lace and Gemma Hydroxy for allowing me to trial and review this wonderful product!

    So far I am loving it! I have been using it for a few weeks now in addition to my normal everyday products. IE, cleanser, toner and moisturiser. And I can really see the difference! My skin looks more toned, especially after using it in the morning when my skin is usually looking its worst! (Tired!) I love the very slight and gentle tingling sensation I got once applied to let me know that it was working away on my skin to bring out the best in it. My skin now just seems to glow and looks much more alive as well as even and clear.
    I also noticed that my skin felt smoother and softer and my fine lines around my eyes were less apparent. Bonus! :)

    I will continue to use this product and have recommended it to my mum who is now keen to try it! Thanks again for the generous size to trial as I wasn’t expecting the full size product! :) A little seems to be going a long way and I know this will last me ages, so I am very happy with that!

    10/10! Love it!

  120. Nidhi Gupta says:

    I was really excited to try this because I have some acne scars and it claims to resurface skin.
    The consistency is really thick but it is easy to use and doesn’t take long to absorb into the skin. My skin instantly felt smooth which I really liked about it.
    Although it says on the packaging that it stings a bit at first but it didn’t sting me at all and I liked the feel of this product.

    My skin feels smooth and more even now and can’t wait to use it for 5 weeks as it will show more definite results after using it continuously for 5 weeks.
    Overall, I am really happy with this product and will continue to use it… :)

  121. Thank you for the opportunity to trial this product.
    My review is a bit late because I did not see any visible improvements in my skin after the first five days of using this product. In fact my skin broke out after a couple of days. Given that the information provided about the product said it could take two weeks to see any effects I thought to be fair I would try it for a bit longer. Still no improvement.
    So obviously I am one of the unfortunate minority for whom the product doesn’t work.
    I also found the cream was not a good base for makeup Ir was not made clear as to whether you could apply moisturiser over the top.
    Interestingly my skin also broke out when using Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting cream.

  122. carol seeley says:

    A very easily absorbed product- does not leave my sensitive skin feeling oil or greasy and never reddened. I have applied a small quatity to small areas and have a noticeable fresh and brighter appearance to these areas, I cant wait to see what longer term use will do for my skim.

  123. Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy skin resurfacing cream is a miracle cream in a cute little jar! I got a 15ml jar sent to me and I could feel the effects from the moment I put it on, it felt amazing! It instantly made my skin feel soft and silky, also smelling great is a big plus from me. In the instructions it tells of a slight tingling that is normal but I have sensitive skin and I have not got any tingling at all, but it does feel like my skin is “glowing” but thats a great feeling! The cream is not oily at all and blends easily into the skin leaving it softer and feeling a lot healthier. You realy can get a great deal of value out of your jar as it only needs to be applied sparingly, twice a day. I have many bad skin conditions that are all being treated by my one new miracle cream Gamma Hydroxy! I love it!!! The effects are fast and fantastic!!! I just love my new skin thanks to this stuff! Dont we all want younger, fresher, healthier skin? We all have skin issues we wish would just go away, without any danger to the skin or the high price tag involved! Well Gamma Hydroxy is the answer! (go check out the website!) This cream is gentle enough to apply everyday but yet has been reported to have effects similar to that of a chemical peel with regular use! Gamma Hydroxy is a resurfacing cream that will not only improve your over all skin texture, look and feel, but will help with pigmentation, acne scarring, reduce pore size and if thats not all, it helps fight wrinkles and fine lines!!! My skin has never felt better, this cream has solved many issues all in one and I can wear make-up over the top while it works! Since all people have all differant skin conditions I think something like this is fantastic, targeting more than just one issue at a time so Gamma Hydroxy saves my money, time and most importantly my skin! Thank You Skin Doctors!!!

  124. This product made my skin feel so smooth in just the first application! After a week and a half of use my skin already looked smoother and my acne scars looked to of improved. I believe this product will take more then a couple of weeks of continued weeks to fully reap the benefits and full effects of this product. Easily absorbed into my skin and i would definitely recommend it! So far impressed!

  125. Thank-you for the opportunity to try this product. I was doing really well,enjoying the nice creamy texture and soft skin but on the fourth day i had a slight redness around the nose and chin area.On the
    fifth day I used a BB cream with spf30 as i was working in the garden and the redness became much was worse and now was all over my face and neck and quite itchy.Maybe it was an interaction with my moisturiser I dont know so I cant give an accurate account of how well it worked.I will stick to my nomal routine I think but thanks anyway.

  126. I really like this product. I received a 15ml sample in a jar as part of the trial and commenced using it twice daily early this week.

    I have a very sensitive t-zone that can react to moderately strong ingredients, so I was expecting I’d experience the tingling mentioned on the box – I did, but it was less intense than I expected and I also have found that now I’m on day 6, the tingling and initial redness when I use it have both ceased.

    The cream is a thick white formula, applied as a thin layer after cleansing & before moisturising. It applies evenly & easily & doesn’t use very much product per application. It absorbs well.

    The first few times I used it I did experience the tingling, but it wasn’t too unpleasant & was relatively brief in duration. I also experienced a distinct redness on day one & two. Now on day 6, the tingling & redness are both non-existent.

    I have had a breakout on day two using the cream (I very rarely get any breakouts so do attribute the cream with my reaction) but it was isolated & hasn’t recurred.

    Now on day six, I’m really enjoying using the cream – my complexion feels noticeably softer & I’m noticing in particular a reduction in pore size around my tzone. I hope that it continues, I’ve plenty of product left in my trial size & would happily purchase a full size product. Thank you Skin Doctors & Beauty & Lace for the trial opportunity

  127. This product really lives up to its promises. After a few daily uses my skin is noticeably smoother and softer to touch. I have always had problems with enlarged pores, now after regular use of Gamma Hydroxy they appear diminished, with fewer blackheads on my cheek and forehead areas.

    My skin appears brighter, and the hyper-pigmentation I suffer from is subtly lighter, so I feel a little less self conscious without make up.

    There is a slight tingling and warmth for a few minutes after application which is perfectly comfortable. I have very sensitive skin so I am happy to report that there were no side effects of redness or irritation that other exfoliating products produce.

    I am excited to continue using this product and would definitely purchase. As the results have been so fantastic after one week, I can’t wait to see how my skin looks after 6 weeks!

  128. Thanks for being chosen to take part in this trial…

    I have used the cream and noticed a difference when it is applied although not quite the miraculous change that I was anticipating longer term. It did make the skin around my eyes feel tighter for about 30 minutes. To me, it was just a richer, thicker moisturiser but it was good in that you need very little to cover a wide area.Not so sure about the exfoliant feature either.

    I would be happy to continue using this but I certainly would not at the price it currently is.

  129. wanda swierczynska says:

    Thank you for letting me try Gamma Hydroxy cream. I’m using it for a week now twice a day. I didn’t have any expectations but after these few day I have to say that my skin is very well moisturized and it looks pink and fresher. I like the consistency of the skin and the fact that it is not greasy. I’m 53 years old but it is hard for me to judge this product about fine lines because my skin is OK in that department. I didn’t have any negative effects like strange tingling or allergy reaction. The cream is also very economical, it will last for a while, I’m sure.

    Regards…Wanda

  130. Sandra Argese says:

    Having used this I haven’t noticed much of a difference at all. I take medication for my skin aswell, I don’t know if that possibly overpowers this product or anything like that. But personally, it has made no difference.

  131. Lisa Jene says:

    I don’t actually know what Gamma Hydroxy is. Certainly the instructions were a little vague: it’s an exfoliant. Well, I normally use exfoliants, wash them off then put on moisturiser. There were no instructions about this, just apply twice daily after cleansing. So I did and abandoned all other moisturisers and serums. The cream is thick and I personally found the smell awful. But I got used to it. For the first two times I felt the cream was sticky on my skin. Later it was absorbed readily. I tried it on my face and, for comparison, on the back of one hand. After using Gamma Hydroxy for a couple of days, my face felt smooth, wonderful. I didn’t notice that much difference, but I did between my hands. Even to the naked eye my Gamma Hydroxy hand was smoother, less wrinkled. After only a few days, I thought it was a great result.

    There were warnings that Gamma Hydroxy might cause some tingling. I felt none, not even on my hands (which are more sensitive to products than my face). The two downsides to Gamma Hydroxy that I found: one, the thick glass wasn’t childproof (it got dropped on a tiled bathroom floor and cracked) – no biggie there. But two, there is a warning skin may be more sun sensitive. This did have me worried and sent me diving into the shade for days.

    I’d happily recommend Gamma Hydroxy to anyone who wants smooth, velvety skin after only a few days. But I’d warn that they should probably only use the product in winter. And to Gamma Hydroxy: guys, don’t be so stingy with the instructions!

  132. I tried Gamma Hydroxy and I found it smoothed out my complexion and toned my skin. It is great for dark spots or uneven patches. On the downside, I found it made my skin very dry.

  133. I have been using Gamma Hydroxy for the last week. Tingles a little on first application, this soon fades. It is a very nice consistency and very moisturising. I have only just started to notice my sun spots fading “slightly”. I would expect with continued use of this product they will fade even more. I will continue to use and see how it goes. All in all, nice consistency and all day feeling of hydration. I will be back.

  134. Ann-Marie Day says:

    This arrived during a very hot week and the first time I put it on it just seemed to sit on my skin and not be absorbed I had almost a burning feeling too and decided to wash it off. So I waited a few days until the weather cooled down to begin using it. I loved that it was soft and smooth and easy to blend. It makes my skin shiny to start with but once it has worked its way in my skin just seems to glow. I never had anymore tingles or anything since using on the cooler days. My pores seem less noticable and my sun spots seem to be less prominant so after a month I can’t wait to see how it looks.
    This is one prduct that does leave your skin looking and feeling better.

  135. Amanda Laird says:

    I was pleasantly surprised by this product! It felt quite thick so I was worried it would be sticky and very thick on my skin but it was easy to apply and evened out well and wasn’t thick at all once on the skin! I have a very oily T section on my face so I did need to be careful and apply sparingly to my oily zones or I woke up with them being quite oily, but once I limited how much I put on it was fine. Overall, it was a lovely cream that left my skin beautifully smooth and soft and I would certainly buy this again!! I have recently bought several different well known brands of skin cream and they have all be horrible for me! This was great!

  136. I love this product my skin tone is getting better every day, I will continue to use it it leaves my skin smooth and radiant it’s a wonderful crem

  137. Great product!! Every one should try it!!!!!

  138. Lovely product, haven’t as so far noticed any major difference to my skin (although it seems to be going through a major difficult stage atm, which nothing seems to be working for). however the cream is lovely, a little went a very long way, and i’ve had no reaction to it, which is great

  139. Sharna Booth says:

    What an amazing product! Within two weeks i found my skin smoother… silker…. and to be honest i found myself being more postive and confident due to my skin improving!

    The cream was not thick when applying, no disgusting fragrance, it was perfect and easy to put on… it didnt create pimples due to too much oil.

    Definately a converted person!

  140. Elly Chen says:

    Super excited when I received this in the mail.
    I haven’t seen the long-time events yet but I am going to keep using it so I will report back.

  141. I wasn’t sure about trying it. I’m not a make up/cream type of person. Can I say, I’m converted. I love it. the smell, the feel and oh my goodness–the results. I definitely feel smoother and softer. Less oil and redness as well. Thank you so much and I will be getting more.

  142. Christine says:

    Ok so I have used this cream for over two weeks. It is true that a little goes a long way. At the beginning i noticed that the skin on my cheeks (where I have very slight bumps and pigmentation) started getting smoother however they have not completely disappeared. I am not sure if they will eventually but i will continue using it in the hope that they will!!!

    I agree that cream is quite pleasant although quite heavy…. hence the ‘little goes a long way’. The tingling on the skin is not harsh and bearable…. depending on the final results and price I may consider it as part of my regular regime…. very happy i got chosen to trial this product. I am completely grateful to beautyandlace for the opportunity… i love your site!!!

  143. Hi,
    Thanks for sending out the sample of Gamma Hydroxy for me to try out generally I am a very wary person and tend not to use any creams, at all well when I received the free sample to try out I was reallly excited for being chosen to sample the product – it is really very very good for my skin which is really sensitive and I am as mentioned not the one to put creams/lotions on my face but I infact surprised myself as I religiously applied the cream twice a day and was pleasantly surprised with the results it left my skin feeling smoother and softer there was a natural kind of glow to my skin after a couple of days and I am sure it will get better as I keep applying the cream twice a day really really satisfied and happy with the product – nice clean looking skin not too oily very easy to apply as well overall very very happy and satisfied with the product will definitely keep using it twice a day till I finish the jar and will also tend to buy another one to actually see the results after continous application for a couple of weeks
    Once again thanks for letting me try the product really really appreciate it well worth the effort (as generally am too lazy ) to apply anything at all but no missing out now as I have seen the results on my skin in just a few days smoother, softer, skin love it

  144. I have been trialling this product for the past 5 days. On first trying it I found that it was only the neck area that felt a mild tingling sensation. After a few days I felt my skin become a lot softer and ‘plumper’, which is amazing considering the extreme heat we’ve had our way. My pores, which are usually quite noticeable, are smaller and the lins at the side of my eyes are also softer looking. Hopefully with long term use the skin discolouration on the side of my face, after my pregnancies, will fade and I won’t have to resort to any invasive procedures to have my normal face back. I will definitely be continuing to use this product, and will hopefully have some more news in the future on the effects of it’s long term use. Thanks Beauty and Lace for the chance to try this product.

  145. Many thanks for giving me the opportunity to try this cream – I found it really fantastic!! Loved the little jar, which was a good size sample as well. I used the cream for last 6 days and saw some very good gradual improvement in the texture of my skin. Tended to make my skin look rather shiny, regardless of how little I used. Really loved the scent of the cream – felt very deluxe. At this stage, I am thinking this might be a product I consider purchasing … depending on price.

  146. Marianne Campbell says:

    I am really impressed with this product! It smells nice and my skin is actually glowing!

  147. Barbara Weber says:

    Hi there, I didn’t forget, just wanted to use it a little longer. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the sample of Gamma Hydroxy.

    Was a little concerned as I had never used this type of product before and it did sound a little harsh. However I have found it to be of excellent quality and although it is not a miracle worker I am able to discern subtle changes in the appearance of my skin. Even after the very first application I felt that my skin felt smoother. I found the product easy to apply, readily absorbed and the tingling was minimal…in fact I wondered whether or not I was applying enough!

    One thing that I have definitely noticed is that I have a benign skin cancer that I keep forgetting to ask the doctor to remove, it has almost disappeared.

    I think that I will probably continue using this product and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

    Thank you Beauty and Lace and Gamma Hydroxy for giving me this opportunity

  148. Pauline Bennett says:

    I am sorry I haven’t replied to the trial sooner, but have been away on holiday. I also was pleasantly surprized by the size of the sample, when I returned home. I have used it for a few day’s and found it did tingle a little, as my skin is a bit sensitive, but not enough to stop using it, and the results where well worth it. I think the tingling is a sign that it is working. My skin feels smooth, and the texture is so much better. I love this product. I would keep using it.

  149. The Gamma Hydroxy cream is AMAZING!! For the past 6 months I have been suffering from really dry skin and alot of white heads, from the first use I started seeing and feeling results my skin is now smooth and silky and looks so much healthier. I have tried many creams for the condition of my face and seen very little result compared to the Gamma Hydroxy cream. I will be continuing use of this cream and will be purchasing a new jar in the near future. Thank you so much Beauty and Lace for getting me onto this product

  150. Cassandra I says:

    Pros:

    Great size, the sample size is going to last me a while (with the small amount you need to use) so the full size product will last you quite a while and at such a reasonable price it’s a bargain. I noticed an immediate brightening of my skin. I used this on my face and upper arms. I have keratosis pillaris (my arms looked like plucked chicken!) On my arms I saw quite a noticeable difference in the redness. So far the most noticeable results on my have have been the brightness and gradual evening of my skin tone. I believe with further use it will help reduce my acne scarring and continue to even out the tone on my arms. I actually don’t mind the smell and as soon as you apply it I can’t smell it anymore anyway! I barely noticed the tingling and did not have any irritation or peeling at all.

    Cons:

    It’s quite thick – similar to a sunscreen consistency. It felt very heavy on my face and left a slight residue upon application. After reading other reviews I lessened the amount but it still felt heavy. However after leaving the product to set and absorb into my skin the heaviness and residue seemed to dissipate. There was no instruction on what order to put this on in your skin regime but only alluded to the fact that moisturiser may be required to help prevent peeling. I put it on before my moisturiser and continued my skin regime as usual.

    In the end I really like this product, it’s perfect for those who don’t want to go through the harshness of a peel, I know my skin feels healthier and brighter and will be an added item in my bag! I highly recommend it for those who have uneven skin tone, dull skin, acne scarring, redness or large pores. You will not regret it!

  151. Kate Lawrence says:

    Thank you Beauty & Lace for letting me trial this product. I have noticed a slight difference and will continue to use the product…I love it!!
    The sample size was a great size and a little bit goes a long way. I’ve been using it Morning and Evening on my T-zone and I hope with future use this will help clear up my skin.

    Thank you!!

  152. V. Favetta says:

    This formula is smooth and only a little bit is needed. It spreads really easily which is great. I did find, even in the short time I’ve had to trial this, that I wake up with a slightly smoother appearance to my skin. I’m hoping this effect cummulative and that with time my old acne scar bit of skin will smoothen right out! Yep, I’ll keep using this little trial pot to see how it goes. So far so good!

  153. Christine Barter says:

    I finally received my sample & have been using it on my face, neck & arms which means that my sample is almost gone even after a few days & only applying a thin layer rubbed in well.
    It is light & easily absorbed. I have noted a positive difference in my skin though the sun spot on my forehead which especially annoys me is still most notieable (to me anyway). Thank you for the opportunity to trial this product.

  154. When i saw the review offer to try SD Gamma Hydroxy i had to jump on it! Thank you B&L & SD for letting me trial this product. I have wanted to try this product for some time now but have been sitting on the fence due to sensitive skin prone to breakouts.

    I love the fact it came in a descent sized jar to trial. It came at the right time as my skin was starting to recover from a major breakout triggered by who knows what. I found my skin clearing & soft, my pores were starting to minimize & it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or heavy. It’s a very light product that easily absorbs into the skin.

    I have noticed that some of my acne scarring lightening, even some of my pigmentation is starting to lighten up as well. It helped clear my skin too. I know i haven’t had it for long but i will give this product range a go in the long run, i might even check out the new range that has just been released as well (all depends on pricing)

    Once again thank you for letting me trial this product.

  155. Thanks Beauty & Lace for choosing me to trial The Gamma Hydroxy cream. A very good size sample. Finish day 5 last night I admit that it has slight faded my fine lines & even improved my deep cheek/laughter lines. Also I do have an aged spot just beneath my eye which isn’t as noticeable now. Very smooth, slight fragrance & a little goes a long way. Slight tingling for the first couple of days.
    As a smoker my skin has really improved. Will definitely be ordering some more from the Skin Doctors.
    Again many thanks for choosing me to trial this wonderful product.

  156. I was so happy to be chosen to trial the Gamma Hydroxy cream – thanks so much!
    I only just recently received it (not sure why) so started to use it straight away. From the very beginning I noticed a subtle change – my skin appears smoother and my husband commented that it has a glow to it. My skintone appears more even too.

    The size of the jar sent for the trial was great. I have only needed to use a small amount each time so it has lasted longer than expected.

    I’m hoping Santa brings me some more products from this range!

  157. I have taken alittle longer to comment but that is because I wanted to see the difference between 5 days and now and will have to admit that my skin just keeps getting better and better the more that I use it.
    You hear companies say that there product do this and that, but I have never come across a skin cream that does all of what they say until now.
    I am extremely impressed with the result. My skin looks so much healthier. The oily areas are gone, my skin feels smooth and it also softer.
    I love this product and will continue to use it from now on.
    Thankyou for allowing me the opportunity to trial this amazing product.

  158. Love, Love, Love this cream! I’ve already taken advantage of the discount offered by Skin Doctors & bought some more. I’ve used their Supermoist in the past & that’s also a great product. the gamma hydroxy gently softens & hydrates the skin just enough so it isn’t gluggy & greasy. it also has a subtle fragrance that I like. I would recommend this face cream to anyone!

  159. Moonlightsak says:

    I loved the packaging. Cute jar , a very generous sample size jar which resembles the actual full size product.
    The cream comes in a 50ml jar and we received a 15ml sample to trial which I found to be quite generous and I have been using it since the past week and a half and have hardly used half the jar. that goes to say that you only need a tiny amount (pea sized) each application to see results. A little goes a long way .
    The cream is white in color with a slight scent. A pleasant scent and I was quite surprised it does not have a chemical scent.
    The consistency is great not thick and not runny just right to apply smoothly to your skin.
    On first application my skin tingled slightly which is quite normal according to the instructions pamphlet. This is to indicate that the glycolic acid is doing its job to resurface your skin . It did not irritate my skin at all and it was quite gental yet so effective.
    After using the cream for about three days twice daily I started noticing a slight peeling of my skin which I was quite happy with as the dead skin cells were sloughing off. My skin felt lot smoother and radiant.
    After a week I felt there was quite a noticable improvement in my skin tone , my skin felt brighter and my acne scars looked lighter. My skin was so smooth as well and I was happy that I did not need harsh scrubs to exfoliate my skin. The gamma hydroxy cream did a good job to exfoliate my skin to smoothness in just a few days.
    It did not irriate my skin at all and did not cause any breakouts on my skin infact it helped to clear my skin from acne as it was getting rid of all the dead skin cells which clogged my pores.
    definatly recommend it and looking forward to buying a full size jar in the future.

  160. Pauline Stacey says:

    I loved this cream it has really smooth,and easy to apply,i noticed the difference in my appearence whitin a few days ,my skin feels softer and amazingly it has removed a sun spot i had under my eye,It had a lovely fragrance ,i would gladly recommend this product as it really does indeed work .Thankm you for the oppurtunity to trial this product

  161. Alison Lee says:

    This felt great! I had never really used a product like this before, but I can feel that my skin had been missing it!
    It’s not greasy or sticky, it absorbed very quickly and gave my face a lovely feel!

    I did get the ‘tingles’ the first few times using it, but I don’t anymore.. It’s part of my routine now.

    I love that this will last a while too! You only need such a small amount.
    I will be recommending this to my friends and family, in fact, I already have..
    Thanks for this opportunity! It’s great to find a new favourite product!!

  162. judith nelson says:

    I am happy that i got to trial the Gamma Hydroxy Cream. I found that it made my skin soft and very smooth, it gave my skin a little extra glow, i have a few spots on my face it has made them a bit smaller and a little less standing out. i can say i didn’t like the smell of it, would have been much better if it had a nice perfumed smell to it, but i did find that it does work on my face anyway, so Thankyou for allowing me to trial the cream.

  163. Debbie R. says:

    I have been using Gamma Hydroxy for a week now and have found a really big difference to the look and feel of my skin.
    When opening the jar it released a pleasantly light fragrance and wasn’t greasy after application.It went on smoothly and did not have a heavy feel on my face
    .I did notice a slight tingling but as the instructions on the package stated this is normal. It made my face feel a lot smoother and fresher. I have a tendency to get quite dry and prone to break outs on my forehead and have noticed that this has now gone .
    I’m very pleased with this product and highly recommend it.
    Thank you for the opportunity to test this product .
    I will definately be using it from now on and I have told everyone I know how great it is.

  164. This cream has a nice medium thick consistency which means you do not need to overdo the application. It absorbs into the skin really well and leaves the skin feeling firm and fresh. On first application I felt a slight tingling sensation – but the instructions explained that this is quite normal. The tingling only applied to the first use.

    My skin felt smoothed and plumped after each use. I believe it visibly improved the texture of my skin after just a weeks use making it softer, smoother, plumper and more radiant. A very good cream…just a small amount required. It has a light and very pleasant fragrance. I would buy this product again depending on the price.

    Thank you Skin Doctors and Beauty and Lace for including me in the trial.

  165. This is day 7 using this product, I find it to be fine on my sensitive skin which is great. A bit early to see results but my skin definitely feels very soft. Smells really nice. Thanks for the opportunity to try this product!

  166. I’ve really appreciated the opportunity to be able to trial this product, have been using for a few days now. Like other testers, I found out after the first day that a little goes a long way, making it quite economical. It absorbs into the skin fairly quickly and made my skin feel soft. I’m looking forward to continuing to use it and see more results. At first I didn’t particularly like the smell, but think I’ve got used to it now and the fragrance certainly doesn’t linger anyway.
    Thanks again to Beauty and Lace and Skin Doctors for allowing me to trial this cream.

  167. carla russel says:

    I have only been using the Gamma Hydroxy on my face for two weeks and have not yet noticed any changes to skin appearance as such but certainly there has been noteable positive difference in skin texture. In fact my facial skin feels sensational, fresh and invigorated after application.
    I also used the product on a sun damaged, reddened and problem area of skin on my decolletage and here I am noticing amazing results even after only two weeks. The red pigmentation is fading and new skin is forming after the gentle peeling action of the product.
    I think I will need to buy the product now to continue with this rejuvenating process for the 5 weeks as suggested on the instructions for use. I have sensitive skin and have had no negative reactions. Thank you for the opportunity to sample this great product.

  168. Thanks heaps to Beauty and Lace for giving so many of us beauties the opportunity to try such a fabulous little cream.
    This cream is lovely and hydrating and I actually spent some time away and I was putting sunscreen on daily so when I got back this cream helped replace all the natural oils in my skin and was very gentle each time.
    My skin feels overall a lot better but I am still going to continue using it as I would like to see some more results.

  169. Well first off the sample pot is a decent size. I have trialled this product for 5 days and am pleased to say that my skin is reaping the rewards. Yes I had the tingling when applying it but it was no problem, my skin tone is starting to even out and some of the wrinkles are starting to look less prominent. My skin feels a lot smoother and has a lovely glow about it.

    The only thing I din’t like was the smell of the cream but apart from that I am pleasantly surprised :) 4/5 stars

  170. I have finally tried the product for 5 days. I delayed this trial as I had a feeling it could affect reviews of another product I am trialling for Beauty & Lace.

    As I knew this was pretty active heavy, I’ve only been using it at night. The first few applications, I did experience the tingling, but it’s expected. Looking at other reviews here, it looks like not everyone expected it, so maybe it needs to be more clear on the packaging.

    I was please the cream was a fluffy type of texture and easy to spread and did not feel heavy or like a layer on my skin. It is also hydrating and has a smoothing effect on the skin.

    5 days is probably to early to give a rounded review, but I’ll continue using the product and give a follow-up when I’ve used up the jar – which could be a while, since it’s a generous 15ml sample.

  171. I noticed a difference in my skin 2-3 days into using this product. I think initially i may not have used enough because i wasnt getting any tingle that was described but i used a little more liberally as time went on and felt the tingle. but still not using heaps noticed a definite difference. AMazing stuff though, i often suffer break outs but my skin was breakout free and also really smooth and even. i found this product to be moisturising enough not to have to use my normal cream over the top which is unusual for me as I have rather dry skin.
    5/5 for this product! thank you beauty and lace for letting me try!

  172. Thanks Beauty and Lace for allowing me to trial this product. When applying to my skin for the first time I couldn’t get over how smooth and light the texture was, it glides on and absorbs so easily! (-:
    I didn’t notice my pigmentation fading however it certainly left my skin feeling, soft, supple, fresh and oh so smooth. A great product for glowing skin!

  173. was so impressed with trialling the gamma hydroxy I ordered the big size jar and received it today :) !

  174. Hi.
    Can anyone tell me where to find the expiration date on gamma hydroxy cream?
    I just received it today but applied on skin, didn’t got me that tingling effect that everyone talks about.
    On the bottom of the jar i found the following:
    MF603/2012 B130312A
    I think it’s definitely expired.
    Please LOOK on yours and tell me.

  175. I finally finished testing this cream, it was a small jar but lasted for a fairly long time. My facial skin type is dry and have freckles. I noticed that during the time I was using this gamma hydroxy cream I didn’t have to exfoliate two times a week anymore and my skin was not as dry as before. Unfortunately I haven’t seen any result of fading my freckles yet. The best thing I like about this cream was its smell, it just smell like yoghurt !

  176. Always wanted to trial but not picked :(
