      I’ve been using this product for many years and cannot live without it!

      It’s great at keeping my skin hydrated.

    2. Oonagh Hinds (verified owner)

      I started the AVST step us system 3 years ago. Results were visible very quickly. After 3 years I am loving my skin. I am now on AVST 5, rolling, and using additional environ products and beauty tools. A game changer!

    3. Zoe mcguinness (verified owner)

      Never had any reactions as I moved up safely using at least 4 bottles before I moved up. I now add in serums and retinol 1 & 2 bottles for a boost. Looking forward to trying the new filler serum .
      People always comment how lovely my skin is I am in my 50’s. I have been using Environ for 9 years.
      Wish I had been using this skin care sooner.
      The results speak for themselves

    4. Lorna Morrow (verified owner)

      Upgraded my regimen under Katherine’s guidance and didn’t experience any negative response. Thank you for your advice.
      This product is light weight and I have noticed improved texture of my skin.

    5. Lucinda Daniels (verified owner)

      I moved up from AVST 4 to 5 and noticed for the first time ever my skin reacted. Katherine was amazing and talked me through what to do next and now I’m using it with no sensitivities. Love these products

    6. Jameala Muchaela (verified owner)

      I’ve been using this product for many years and cannot live without it! It’s amazing at keeping my skin hydrated and keeping the fine lines at bay!

    7. Eleanor mitchell (verified owner)

      A sense of achievement when you reach Level 5 and my skin is definitely better for it. Using with the retinol which seems to make the bottle last slightly longer. Wouldn’t change for another brand now!

    8. Gail Osborne (verified owner)

      I’ve been using environ moisturiser for years it’s made a significant difference to my skin I wouldn’t use anything else

    9. Karen Liddle (verified owner)

      I love this product, wouldn’t be without it!

    10. Irina Green (verified owner)

      I have been using this product for 2 years! It is my must product, amazing!

    11. Zoe mcguinness (verified owner)

      I have been using AVST 5 for years I always get compliments I would never change. Once you have moved up to this level you can then introduce more serums and retinol to keep adding to your skin regimen. The ladder for improvement with Environ never stops Dr Des Fernandes is a hero of the skin care world
      Fighting aging and cancer of the skin it’s more than a moisturiser it’s an everyday medicine for your skin to stay healthy

    12. Rashmi Agarwal (verified owner)

      I love the smoothness on my skin achieved by applying AVST5.
      A brilliant moisturiser ??

    13. Gail Osborne (verified owner)

      I love this face cream I love even more that I can order it online at the best price

    14. Joan bruce (verified owner)

      The best moisturiser I have experienced for my very dry skin.

    15. Michelle Buxton (verified owner)

      Over two years I reached AVST 5. My skin is supple, smooth and looks lovely and healthy. Redness and fine lines are reduced on my face and my neck looks great. Love it!

    16. Pinky Chahal (verified owner)

      The best moisturiser combined with Coloustrum or Elixir. Me and my mum used it and we love it.

    17. Zoe mcguinness (verified owner)

      I have been using Environ for over 8 years I have mature skin so was concerned with aging spots and wrinkles. I have the DF machine treatments and medical needling which definitely speeds up your results of younger looking skin. But these treatments will not work on their own you need to feed your skin with vitamins vitamin A is essential but you need to start slow. That’s why the Environ step up system is amazing I have been on AVST 5 for a long time so I can now add in other serums to up my game. The amazing thing about Environ you can just keep going and adding more into your skin regimen. Just need to budget but your skin will thank you later in life. I don’t look my age so lucky I started using Environ in my 40’s only regret didn’t find Environ sooner. God bless Dr Des Fernandes he is a saint

    18. Connie Bres (verified owner)

      AVST 5 is extremely absorbant and leaves the skin fresh but not oily. It works really well to give a radiant look and no matter how old you are, it makes you look at your best. And that’s without makeup!
      First time buying from SkinGym, but I’ve been using it for the last 10 years!

    19. MARIANNE EVANS (verified owner)

      I just love the texture of this moisturiser, just feels like silk and so nourishing for the skin. The improvements in the appearance of my skin is amazing.

    20. Karen Liddle (verified owner)

      I have been using this product for over 3 years now and it really works for me. I only order via Katherine @ SkinGym now as the service is excellent and her prices are good.

    21. Emily Hutley (verified owner)

      I’ve been using AVST for years now and definitely the best.

    22. Pinky Chahal (verified owner)

      I’ve been using Environ for 8 years now and started AVST 1 when I had really bad acne. Over the years my skin improved and I’ve been using AVST 5 for last 4-5 years and it’s the best. I will always add Colostrum or Avance Elixir to it. Nothing else has worked for my acne prone skin. I honestly cannot live without these products. So glad for SkinGym because my beauty supplier has been closed during lockdown last year.

    23. Laura Mullan (verified owner)

      I have been using AVST now for about 2 years now and the different in my skin is amazing. I wouldn’t be without this product now

    24. rebecca o’connor-read (verified owner)

      I have been using AVST for about 3 years now. It’s the only moisturiser I have kept with consistently because it really seems to suit my skin. I used to have dry flaky patches but this is no longer the case and it has all the ingredients in to keep skin healthy but without the unnecessary stuff such as perfumes.

    25. Rashmi Agarwal (verified owner)

      I have used Avst 5 for the last 18 months and have seen amazing results on my skin. My skin feels much smoother and even.

    26. Karen Askew (verified owner)

      I’ve been using this cream for years now and wouldn’t use anything else. Absolutely love it! The AVST range is the only thing that sorted out my acne.

    27. Irina Ermakova (verified owner)

      This moisturiser is made such to my skin. It looks plump and fresh, skin tone is more even. Few friends asked me about the product that I use. You have to start with level 1 and build it up to 5.

    28. paula rafferty (verified owner)

      I’ve being using Environ and the magic product AVST for about 4 years now and love it. Fantastic product. The difference in my skin since starting using it people generally think I’m 10 years younger than I am.

    29. Nicola codling (verified owner)

      I have used this for about 6 years now and wouldn’t be without sometimes if I forget to order in time before I run out I can tell my skin is so different without it.

    30. Sharon Freeman (verified owner)

      I have used this cream for about 5 years and can definitely see a difference, it is absolutely wonderful to use. My only problem is I cannot buy a larger bottle. I find two pumps enough and always have a spare one ready!.
      This product would be on my desert island list, can’t do without it.?

    31. Laura Button

      An essential skincare product! ALWAYS have a back-up in my drawer for when I’m running low 🙂

    32. Eisher Kaur (verified owner)

      Having used Environ for around 7 years now, I’ve worked my way up to AVST5 and can honestly say I love it- nothing else has worked on my sensitive skin (and I’ve tried a lot of products!).

    33. Charlotte Gallagher (verified owner)

      This product is the best! I’ve worked my way up to AVST 5 carefully with the help and advice from Catherine. I couldn’t live without this now. My skin is clear and this helps to build up a strong skin barrier to protect you from everyday pollution!

    34. Naomi Spalding (verified owner)

      Fantastic product. The difference in my skin since starting using has been unreal. Will never use anything else now.

    35. Elaine Turner (verified owner)

      Only moisturiser that I like to use. Love environ products and have been using this for many years. No other moisturiser feels like this.

    36. karen mckenna (verified owner)

      Have now gone through steps 1-5. Use once a day not twice but have noticed the difference. Has reduced capillaries on my cheeks and haven’t had a rosacea outbreak the whole time. Ready to try the Retinol 1 now, but unfortunately it’s all out of stock.

    37. Robina Fortune (verified owner)

      Having gone through the steps advised I love these moisturers. You only need one pump and that is perfectly adequate. I have tried two pumps but that really is too much in my view and not necessary.

    38. zineb nouhi (verified owner)

      This such a light consistency dialy moisturizer that makes sure a huge difference

    39. SHANE CASEY (verified owner)

      Great product and highly recommend to anyone

    40. Dawn Anderson (verified owner)

      I’ve been using the AVST/Skin essentia range for over three years now and can’t see myself changing to anything else anytime soon – I wish I’d known about this stuff in my thirties!

    41. Alison Dibb (verified owner)

      The best cream I’ve ever used! Makes such a difference to my skin especially when used with the retinol serum

    42. Sue Kiberd (verified owner)

      I’ve used AVST for about 5 years now and love it. It’s definitely made a difference to my skin, people generally think I’m younger than I am. My local beautician (who stocks Dermalogica) always tells me to carry on what I’m doing as my skin’s so good!

    43. nicola grevatt (verified owner)

      The only cream I’ve ever used that works!

    44. April Clarke (verified owner)
