A beat-the-break-out range we really rate

There are few things more gratifying for a Beauty Editor than when a product, or in this case a range of products, gets the thumbs up from a number of different testers.

It normally means that it works.


When I first came across the Repechage Hydra Medic range ­ a series of products based on the brand's signature marine ingredients (seaweed, mainly) aimed at treating spot-prone skin ­ I happened to be sitting next to a colleague whose adult acne was really getting her down. I gave her the products to try, and after two weeks, she was trilling with excitement ­ they were working. So much so that she requested a repeat order. In the meantime, our online team were testing anti acne products and included Repechage in their trials. When their tester came back with great results, I decided it must be special and called some in for my sister. Having been blessed with clear skin all her teenage years, she started getting spots in her late twenties and was beside herself. 'It's not working', she told me a week or so later. 'Give it a chance,' I said. I forgot about the whole thing, then the next thing I knew 'Annie, can you get me some more of that Repechage stuff?'

Repechage means rescue in French and if you're skin's breaking out and needs some help, try this range - it's definitely worth a try.
