Hi Anon, thank you for the comment.
I must start by stating that I am sorry that you are experiencing these unacceptable side effects from the cream. Interestingly I have recently had 2 previous posts on the anti-ageing forum about this product with very similar skin breakouts.
I am also a little surprised that a topical product is producing such a reaction on peoples skin and believe that this should be taken further. Pure Perfect states on their web page that their products have been approved by the Department of Health (DOH) to contain no harmful ingredients. It may be worth for everyone who has experienced similar effects to complain to the DOH and hopefully they will take it further. Typically the reasons for acne breakouts from topical products are:
Too aggressive use of facial wash
Facial wash too acidic and as such it removes the natural acid balance
Excessive sebum production
Products too oily
I hope the above has helped and that your dermatologist can she further light onto the matter.
