Helps control sebum & unclogs pores.
For the improvement in appearance of acne, red marks and brown marks (3 blemishes).


  • Salicylic acid

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

We need to tackle all 3 processes simultaneously. TrioBlitz TM is a trademarked complex in our TRIO Blemish line to help achieve this.

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 (controls sebum)

Salicylic acid (unclogs pores)

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 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.

So grateful for this product

This has been an amazing product to use, especially after having watched so many videos by Dr V. I have the peace of mind of knowing this product will be good for my melanin rich acne prone/ oily skin. I have pretty sensitive skin and have been fine to use the bha exfoliator most days. I really look forward to a pregancy safe pm moisturizer and body range.

Senait Ketema (Dubai, AE)
Trio Blemish face wash

I love the way it cleans completely without drying my skin but I had acne in the first week it lasted one week but as I used it continuously i didn’t had acne for over a month now over all I like it.

Kyky (Manchester, GB)

I have noticed you don't need to use much I use 1 pump which goes a long way. I see my skin looks glowing and fresh and clear. I also prefer the new pump much better not getting stuck like before with the cerapep cream. So yes brilliant thanks Dr v

Sumayya (Preston, GB)
Great face wash

This facewash is fantastic and I only need 1 pump which is about a pea size amount. It is affordable and will last a long time. It makes my skin soft and supple and doesn't strip off the skin. Well made 👌

Theola B. (Burlington, CA)
Simple Acne Cleanser

- It's nice to use an acne face wash that doesn't have a burning/menthol sensation.
- It's simple, gentle, and my skin feels hydrated after washing.
- My acne is under control.
- One bottle lasted 2.5 months! I use 1 pump in the morning and 2 pumps at night. I started using the cleanser in May and purchased a second bottle in June but haven't needed it until now - July 31 (picture shows finished bottle and new unopened box).

- The pump drips after use.
- This face wash doesn't work for double cleansing. It can't effectively remove makeup/sunscreen.

I'm grateful to have an acne skincare line designed with a good formulation of ingredients.

I was disappointed that the Trio Blemish line didn't include an oil/balm/gel cleanser to remove makeup/sunscreen. People with oily acne prone skin wear makeup and sunscreen too! To me, it feels like acne sufferers always get basic skincare treatment - cleanser, moisturizer, and salicylic acid. I was expecting a complete Daily Acne Range with a makeup/sunscreen remover, as many acne sufferers manage acne on a daily basis, while also wearing makeup and sunscreen.

I've purchased the Oil Melting Cleanser from the Daily Range and it works well on my oily acne prone skin to remove makeup and sunscreen. I love using this oil cleanser with the Trio Blemish Cleanser afterwards for my nightly routine.

I love using these products and I can't wait to try more!
