Our products are based on 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Cleanse - Add water to a small amount of Cleanser, rub together to make a light foam, then gently using small circular movement massage it all over your skin (avoiding your eye area) then remove thoroughly using a clean face washer.
Always cleanse twice if you are wearing makeup - 1 for the makeup, 1 for your skin!

Our 2 serums are formulated differently to suit different skin types. It's not a "get the stronger one... get faster results" kind of thing. And it's important to choose the serum most suited to your skin.
Our Green Control Serum is suitable for most breakout prone skin or maintaining clear, beautiful skin. It is also the one most suited to those under the surface pimples and is usually enough for controlling younger skin.
Our Red Control+ Face Serum is suitable for very problematic, very persistent and more severe breakouts that lie on the surface of the skin.
Both are gentle on your skin, yet tough on oiliness and breakouts.

This is our most common question. Every skin is different and responds differently and although real-u deliverers positive results for most people it is not something we guarantee will work the same for every skin. For this reason we have 10ml Mini Tubes of our Control+ Serum
(about 2 weeks supply) available for you to try to see how your skin is going to like real-u.
No more compromise...
real-u is a totally new way of dealing with problem skin, it is a complete game changer in the acne market. We have always had to compromise to treat acne and pimples or had to endure the side effects of strong harmful chemicals, it has been a bit like - "l know it hurts my skin but l’ll do anything to get rid of my pimples.” The biggest difference with real-u is that we no longer have to think like this… Now we can deal with breakout prone skin without hurting or damaging our skin.
We don’t use the ‘2 common nasties' Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid (found in most acne products) that have a strip and burn effect on your skin... We have new technology unique to real-u.
Our products actually help make your skin healthy, calm & strong, at the same time as clearing your breakouts. That’s the real-u difference.
When our skin is in breakout mode, the products that we turn to have the same ‘2 common nasties’ (Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid) These products have a strip and burn effect on our skin, this then causes our skin to become dry and sensitive, which sends your oil glands into overdrive to compensate - you then notice your skin becomes increasingly oily and more likely to breakout – as this cycle continues it causes your skin to become inflamed, more oily and more likely to breakout. You also notice that your skin takes longer to heal as your skin is becoming weaker.
So the bottom line is as you are trying to fix your skin, you’re just making it worse.

Every skin is different and therefore responds differently. Some people start seeing results within days/ weeks, others it can be longer. Be patient with your skin as stress can be a trigger for breakouts. Being calm is a super power!
