I’m a nurse and with the prolonged mask wearing with current events I started to get a rash around my nose which I desperately wanted gone so I applied some steroid cream (which I later found out is a big no no) the steroid caused the rash to spread around my nose and mouth & turned into PD. I tried every cream under the sun, I stopped steroids I even tried antibiotics which I stopped as it did not make any change after months and left me with compromised gut health.
The only thing that worked was the Soothing Duo and a few tweaks to my diet. I had read the reviews online and in a last ditch attempt after months of a painful red face I placed an order and I am beyond grateful that I did. Thank you Kiri!

I purchased the full Amperna range after suffering a very bad case of perioral dermatitis (PD) on my face around my mouth and nose. I tried at least 5 or more over the counter/ prescription ointments which did nothing except make things worse. I started googling (as you do) online and found Amperna and immediately purchased their full range.
When my products came they were beautifully packaged even with a personal handwritten note with detailed instructions. Within 2 weeks (using only lightweight soothing emulsion and probiotic serum) my face was clear of the PD and about a month later the redness was completely gone. I also suffered regular acne which hasn’t come back and the blackheads around my chin are also gone which I had been trying to get rid of for years with a multitude of products.
Thank you so much Kiri for this amazing product!! I’m also excited to try the new range of products too! (Photo 1 = before Amperna, photo 2 = 2 weeks after use, photo 3 = now 3 months using Amperna).

I’ve suffered with perioral dermatitis on and off for about three years after using a topical steroid cream for mild acne. I’ve never been able to find something that is specifically targeted for the condition, and I’ve in the past spent so much money on treatments and it often makes the condition worse. Mine varies from severe to mild, I starting using Amperna in a mild flare up and it felt gorgeous on my skin, smells lovely and no irritation what so ever - very rare for me! And within four days, the flare up was almost completely gone. I couldn’t believe it.
I’m based in the UK but will continue to go to this Aussie brand because it’s honestly the best thing I have ever tried. Not to mention the amazing personal care from Kiri herself including coaching on how to introduce the products to your skin.
I can’t recommend Amperna enough ❤️

After coming off topical steroid cream my PD had never been worse. I ordered the soothing duo from Amperna and within one week the itchiness had reduced, and it was way less inflamed. After two weeks it started to clear around my eyes and after about 6 weeks it had mostly cleared all up.
I still have outbreaks here & there and the soothing serum instantly cools and reduces the redness. The lightweight soothing+ emulsion is a great lightweight moisturiser and calms the skin also. I’m glad I’ve found a product that helps, not hinders, my PD. Thanks Amperna ☺️

I have had red bumps under my chin since I was 11 that nothing has fixed...until now! They are slowly disappearing which is amazing as I have always been self conscious about them. I've also experienced rosacea symptoms and incredibly dry skin as a result of hypothyroidism. This has also improved drastically since using the AMPERNA® Full Range Bundle. It is so great to have products that make a difference and don't make my very sensitive skin react at all.

As someone who has never had smooth skin, with a combination of sun exposure, heavy workouts, dry office environments and blemishes, I was intrigued but had reserved expectations of the AMPERNA® skincare range.
I’ve never liked my skin, I’ve always been self-conscious of the flaws that I’ve seen in the mirror and the concerned comments from well-meaning family and friends. My skin has been always prone to comedones, dry spots and breaking out due to stress.
I was not sure of what to expect and as I had tried and given up on a number of products in the past. My hopes for the AMPERNA® products were initially muted when I was given the opportunity to try them, but I was happy to try.
To have family members, friends and colleagues who were unaware that I was even trying a new product - trying any product at all - making comments within days of starting to use the AMPERNA® skincare that they felt my skin was clearing and looking smoother was extremely welcome feedback. It’s given my self-esteem and confidence a boost.
What I’m seeing in the mirror as I’ve been using AMPERNA®’s products is nothing short of amazing and I’m extremely glad to have been using them. The products are not only easy to use, they are a low maintenance regime (which works great for me as a guy) with visible results and the immediate sensation with using these products is fantastic.
The AMPERNA® Ultra Gentle Soothing Cleanser is smooth on the skin and rinses off simply and gently with water. The serums work into the skin gently and the 10% Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion feels amazing as it works on the skin. I also used the AMPERNA® Probiotic+ DS Soothing Serum, a special product, to address deep scratches in my skin. They were clearing up within days and gone within a week, they are no longer visible at all.
I’m truly thrilled with AMPERNA®’s skincare range and highly recommend it, both as a complete skincare regime and each of the products separately. The quality of each product is amazing and the results are fantastic. I recommend AMPERNA® to anyone.

I have had my fair share of problem skin. I suffered from adult pustular acne which started because of underlying health issues when I was 30. I searched for something to use on my skin that worked - I also learnt the importance of healthy eating and staying hydrated. I vowed to take better care of my skin. I feel that this difficult period in my life was the start of the idea that became AMPERNA®. When I developed perioral dermatitis, I used these same holistic principles as well as a process of product elimination to try to learn how to help my condition. AMPERNA® was started specifically so I had an active skincare regime that wouldn’t aggravate my problem skin. I formulated with a chemist to help my PD. AMPERNA® products contain a probiotic complex that delivers good bacteria to your skin. There are so many other great ingredients in our products; I have noticed an improvement in my skin.
