Hey! My names Kelly! I'm a 42 year old hotel receptionist, part time copy writer and newly turned Amour Skincare enthusiast and I'm here to tell you about my problems, well not all of my problems as this would be a long story and unlike my other problems the one that I had with my acne has now been solved, without raiding my bank account I may add and in the simplest way.

So, when did this acne start, when I was a teenager? In my twenties while stressed at uni? No, to both of these, it started in my 30s, I didn’t even have acne as a teenager! what was going on?

My journey to solve this issue which was quite daunting in itself, it sent me visiting clinics, beauticians, doctors etc. I am used to dealing with people in my job as a hotel receptionist but this does mean that I’m in front of people constantly and my acne was stressing me out, and I was out of my comfort zone.

The treatments I undertook went from different contraception pills, antibiotics, chemical peeling, different weird and wonderful lasers, yes they may have helped slightly but my acne still remained and was worse at certain times of the month if you get my drift. I was thinking that this was it, this is how my skin will look now and there was nothing I could do about it.

I was wrong, I don’t think I ever really gave up when I knew that there had got to be a way to sort this out, I didn’t have acne before so what has changed, I knew this, I just didn’t know why until I walked into one particular clinic.

Like usual, I expected to be told I was going to remortgage my house to afford what she was going to recommend! However I was told, “you have a hormone imbalance which has impaired your skins barrier function, we need to fix it. There is work to do to balance your hormones, this will take time and commitment from you, but we can work together on that problem, but with regard to your skin you will need this cream."

She then said, "this cream will repair the skins impaired barrier function. If we can repair the barrier function then your skin issues will disappear. Your skin has been through a lot, we need to calm it down and give it a bit of TLC, All the ingredients in this cream are completely natural. This is what you need." 

Hormone imbalance, barrier function I said, yes she said with confidence, we need to take you on a bit of journey to rebalance your hormones, trust me, no clinical treatments are needed, just back to basics. 

It would be really cliché to say, ’AND THE REST IS HISTORY’, but it really is. How it works? I don't know. Why it works? I don't know. But we shouldn't always go looking for the why, sometimes you've just got to appreciate that you actually found that needle in the haystack you've been longing for! 

You're probably wondering why I haven't mentioned the product yet. That's because this isn't some sales pitch! I wanted people to actually read about my experience rather than just seeing the product and clicking it!

BUT FIRST! Let's get a bit 'nerdy' and look at what the barrier function is. Oh, and for those impatient ones (like me) who are probably sat there thinking, SHUT UP AND TELL ME WHAT IT IS, it's coming. 😁

Barrier Function

What you need to know.


Caused by an impaired Barrier Function

 • Eczema/Dermatitis
• Psoriasis
• Hormonal Acne
• Burns
• Sunburn
• Nappy rash
• Skin infections
• Toxins in the skin.
• Dry skin
• Excess sebum
• Stretch marks
• Redness/Rosacea


The Problem

The skin barrier function is there to protect your skin from potential problems. If it has been impaired or compromised it will show as irritated skin in various forms such as: acne, dermatitis, eczema and more.


The Solution

When the skin barrier function is working efficiently your skin will glow and look radiant as the skin continues to retain water. When the skin is hydrated and contains sufficient lipids, harmful toxins are unable to penetrate the skin, preventing it from inflammation and numerous skin issues.


DRUMROLL PLEASE ... 🥁🥁🥁 I really hope this isn't a big anti-climax, but I didn't quite know how to introduce it; anyways here it is!

Before I used this product on my face my skin was dry, dull, red and lacked any sort of 'glow'. I also had a HORRIBLE amount of excess sebum in the t-zone area.

NOW my skin glows. If I avoid the sun the redness stays away and the excess sebum completely vanishes.

I've sworn by this product for months now and I haven’t failed to tell all my friends and family about it. I tell EVERYONE and they are NEVER disappointed.

I can't sit here and tell you that it's definitely going to work for you, but I can tell you that this cream has completely changed my skin... And my life.

Even one of my friends came to me complaining about the HORRIBLE eczema on her hands and now she tells me the cream is working its magic. Who would of thought that something made with all natural ingredients could be the key to resolving these issues? NOT ME.

The product is not oily and does not contain any harsh chemicals or ingredients. I use it in the morning and before I go to bed and it sits wonderfully in my makeup bag, which is definitely a big bonus!!

I just want to clarify I was NOT paid to write this article. If you honestly knew what this has done for my self confidence you’d understand why I couldn’t miss out on writing this review!

Good luck on your skincare adventure, but hopefully after this product you'll no longer need it.
