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, 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.

      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.
