Why use a gel moisturiser? For oily/acne prone skin, you want to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser (doesn’t clog pores). For this you ideally want a non-fatty moisturiser (oil free), so a light gel-based moisturiser is preferrable, where you know the water content is high & fat content negligible. 

Why even moisturise oily skin? Not moisturising the skin can make it feel tight, which triggers sebum production (makes acne worse).

Why use separate AM/PM moisturisers? There are advantages to using some active ingredients at night, and there are other ingredients which you would ideally not want to use during the day. This calls for separate formulations of moisturiser, so ingredient utilisation is optimised for each time period.

AM MOISTURISER – contains: 1. Niacinamide (strengthens skin barrier, safe for day), 2. Sodium ascorbyl phosphate (mops up free radicals triggered by day time UV), 3. Anti-inflammatories to soothe the skin as it is under assault from UV/pollution etc.

PM MOISTURISER – contains: 1. tyrosinase inhibitors (Alpha Arbutin, Retinol, Ferulic acid) to reduce melanin production, which you would not want to wear during the day (makes skin UV sensitive), 2. Ceramides, which are best worn in evening to restore skin overnight.

Why Use Skincare by Dr. V's Gel Moisturiser? The gel moisturisers from other brands are unlikely to contain the active ingredients required to reduce the 3 blemishes or be optimised for skin of colour, as they are primarily just for basic moisturisation.

    People of skin of colour with oily skin are more likely to get all 3 acne blemishes: Acne, Post Inflammatory Erythema (red marks) and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (brown marks). We need to tackle all 3 processes simultaneously.

    Irritation can be more problematic for darker skin tones, and therefore it should be avoided where possible. This product is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.

    For people with oily, acne prone skin & 12 years and over.

    Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.


    - Niacinamide 2% (control sebum)

    - Vitamin C [sodium ascorbyl phosphate] 2%

    - D panthenol, Allantoin, Green tea extract arnica(anti-inflammatory)

    - glycerin 3% (hydrator)

    - Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (Azelaic Acid)

    Use 1-2 pumps of Trio Blemish AM GEL Moisturiser and massage into the skin. Use every morning after TRIO Blemish Face Wash for oily skin.

    Afterwards, you can apply your InZincable SPF0. (May 2023 - AM Gel reformulated for easier sunblock application without pilling.)

    Works best with the whole TRIO Blemish oily skin range.

    Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean skin, not if cracked/damaged. In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required. 

    1. How long would TRIO Blemish range products last for?

    This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 6-8 weeks approx.

    2. Is the TRIO Blemish suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?

    The range is suitable for pregnancy except for the 'PM Gel Moisturiser' (contains Vitamin A). If unsure or your circumstances vary, please check with your doctor.

    3. Is the TRIO Blemish range suitable for all skin types?

    This product range is NOT suitable for dry/sensitive skin.

    It is only suitable for oily/acne prone skin or combination/acne prone skin.

    People with dry/acne prone skin can use TRIO Blemish Face Wash & AM Gel Moisturiser in the MORNING, and in the EVENING use TRIO Blemish Face Wash & PM Gel & Dr V Cera Pep Moisturiser. They should not use the TRIO Blemish Exfoliator.

    4. What if I have just combination skin (non-acne prone)?

    Please try the following protocol if your skin is normal/dry in most areas and oily on the T-zone:

    AM & PM please use the Dr. V Daily Range but on the T-zone use the TRIO Blemish Exfoliator INSTEAD OF the Daily Range 'Exfoliate to Glow' product.

    5a. Can you use the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Hyperpigmentation kits?

    Yes, using the following protocol:


    1. Wash with TRIO Blemish Face Wash

    2. Apply TRIO Blemish Exfoliator

    3. TRIO Blemish AM Gel Moisturiser.


    1. TRIO Blemish Face Wash

    2. TRIO Blemish Exfoliator,

    3. Dr. V Facial Pigmentation Kit

    4. TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser

    5b. Can you use the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Antioxidant Power Serum, to enhance anti-ageing benefits?

    Yes, use the AO Serum last, after the TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser.

    5c. Can you mix & match the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Daily Range or 3rd party products?

    Yes, you can interchange parts of the TRIO Blemish routine with products from other brands or Dr V Daily Range, for example if you only want to use TRIO Blemish cleansers but moisturisers from elsewhere and vice versa.

    6a. Can I still use Tretinoin/ topical Acne medications (Duac, Adapalene etc) with TRIO Blemish range?

    Yes, same as Facial Pigmentation kit protocol above, but swapping the kit with Tretinoin/medication, and SKIP the evening Exfoliator application.

    So the protocol would be:


    1. Wash with TRIO Blemish Face Wash

    2. Apply TRIO Blemish Exfoliator

    3. TRIO Blemish AM Gel Moisturiser.


    1. TRIO Blemish Face Wash

    2. Tretinoin or Acne medication

    3. TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser

    6b. Can I use the TRIO Blemish range whilst on Isotretinoin/Roaccutane?

    Only some of the products, you can use the TRIO Blemish Face Wash & AM Gel Moisturiser.

    Please do not use the PM Gel or Exfoliator.

    6c. Should I still use Niacinamide, Ceramides, Retinol, Vitamin A/C/E serums from other skincare lines in conjunction with the Dr V. TRIO Blemish Range?

    No, nothing else required, it's all in the range.

    You can try other products with the range, however only you know your skin and what it can tolerate, so some trial & error may be needed.

    7. How do you apply sunblock on top of the AM gel?

    As part of the gel moisturiser sits on the surface of the skin, there may be additional protocols when applying creams on top:

    Firstly, apply the product to your fingertips, rub together to warm-up and spread the product into a thin/even layer, before applying to facial areas.

    Secondly, when applying the sunblock to the face (5-10 mins later), please do so in 1-2 strokes maximum, as continuous rubbing once the initial layer of sunblock has settled may cause the AM Gel to ‘pill’ lightly. 

    Furthermore, you can use a toner before application of the moisturiser, and then follow with the sunblock.

    8. How long does it take to see results?

    You may start to notice beneficial effects in as little as 2-4 weeks, however we advise 8+ weeks to see the full potential, as per the consumer trial results.

    Wonderful product!

    My daughter started suffering terribly with cystic acne just after her 12th birthday. It was affecting her self confidence and we felt that we needed to do something. We tried many products and did not see much improvement until we started using the Trio Blemish range. It's very pricy for a 13th year old but we really have no choice as it has improved her skin greatly!

    Found it!

    Found what works finally!! I have a combination skin on my face and I already use cerapep but can be a bit too oily after sometime. So now, I wash my face, use a light layer of cerapep, after 2 min follow with a pump of trio Blemish AM Moisturiser then wait for 10 min before my sunscreen. Perfect and happy face! Thanks Dr V! Still waiting for a sunscreen suitable for oily skin. All my love and respect x

    Love the range

    I brought the trio blemish range earlier this year and love it. The gel am moisturiser is smooth and spreads well, no breakouts and just calm hydrated skin. Thank you for making a value for money range that not only works well and looks great but also contains the right ingredients x
