Up until my 20’s , I was still suffering with acne-prone skin and it really was the worst time in my life (if you suffer with pimples, you’ll know what I mean) . I would go out and feel self-conscious that all people saw was the marks and horrible ugly growths that were on my face. I know that make-up would cover it up but that was only temporary , I just wanted it to go away. But, of course that didn’t happen. I thought it may be a phase while I was in high school but after trying many products and with it carrying through past adolescence – I kind of gave up.
Some people would ask my why I had so many pimples (really ? are you seriously asking me that? 😐 if I knew, I wouldn’t have them, would I? ) and at times I would just sob to myself about how terrible I felt and constantly ask ,why me?
Then , after years of searching and endless trips to the dermatologist and GP , I discovered Lamelle products. I was recommended the Clarity and Acnevelle range and since it is manufactured for South African skin, I was open to trying it and so started using it immediately.
I was very consistent in using these products on a daily basis because I knew that if I didn’t , I wouldn’t know if it really worked or not.
I have really oily skin so for me, a creamy cleanser doesn’t make my skin feel all that clean. This product did have a bit of a drying effect but I preferred it because I really do hate that oily feeling even after cleansing.
The corrective AM/PM were fantastic – I found my skin really feeling moisturised and hydrated but it was still lightweight at the same time (plus I love the jars they come in 🙂 )
I used the Active Control when I saw the emergence of a pimple (little bugger! ) and usually kept this on overnight. This one should just be applied a little at a time to an affected area. And by the next morning, it was considerably smaller as it dried up.
The Acnevelle capsules were truly the best! I would take one capsule twice a day – however, after a while , it is quite annoying to remember to take these. 😐 But I stuck to my plan and this regimen and kept at it.
Lo and behold , I slowly started seeing a difference. Ladies , please remember : you will not wake up the next morning with skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom 😛 When using any skincare product, you shouldn’t expect to see a dramatic result overnight – these products take time to work and patience is the key.
What happened after three months was something I will never forget. I went to work as normal, no make-up on and my colleague (who has super-amazing smooth-looking blemish-free amah-zing skin) complemented me on how ‘great‘ my skin looked and she wanted to know what I was using. Soon after, everyone in the office noticed and I felt so grateful to the creators of these fantastic products. Never before had I felt a sense of happiness with the look of my skin and I was chuffed.
If you’re looking for stockists of these products, check out Lamelle’s website here or contact your nearest beauty salon and enquire if they keep these products.

I never felt more confident and trusted a range as much as I do Lamelle Clarity, I had no side effects except awesome-looking skin and I would recommend these products to those who are still searching for a product that can help them. As always, please be aware that individual results may vary.
This was my experience and instead of keeping it to myself, I thought I would share it will all of you lovelies. oh and the world (if you’re reading 🙂 )
