Etat Pur Giveaway – Five Free Skincare Sets! CLOSED

**UPDATE! And the winners are: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] Well done! If one of the winners is YOU and you haven’t received an email, please let me know. I do tend to mis-spell email addresses and get my hyphens and underscores confused!**

If you didn’t read my post on Etat Pur on Saturday, then you can do so here: Etat Pur Skincare Solutions. Those who read it will know that I raved a little bit about the innovative way in which Etat Pur sell skincare products – online, at affordable prices, using brilliant research and development resources.

Do you want a piece of this pie? What’s pie in French? Tarte?

Whatever. If you’d like to win one of FIVE skincare sets (customised to fit your very own prescription!) then here’s how you enter.

1) As with all giveaways now, you must be signed up to AMR: Exclusive. Why you wouldn’t want to be is beyond me (haha!) because you get an amazing quarterly newsletter with secret stuff in it, but anyway. Sign up here!

2) You need to do your Etat Pur questionnaire and leave me a comment below telling me ONE of the products that appears on your prescription. If you win, you’ll get a whole set, but for now, just tell me one thing. It can be the product that most catches your eye, or the one that sounds the least appealing, or just a random one. Whichever you like! You can get your prescription in under a minute (if you know your stuff!) and the link to the Etat Pur homepage is here: ETAT PUR

3) Make sure that you leave me an email address where prompted in the comment form – no email, no prizey!

4) Get your entries in before 12pm (that’s noon, or midday depending on whether you speak like someone from a history book or not) on FRIDAY 11th MAY, 2012.

This is open to all members of AMR: Exclusive, wherever you are in the world.

Happy skin analysing!

    The product that most catches my eye is Argan.

    • Anne Robinson
      May 8, 2012 / 11:16 am

      The first item on my prescription is Acmella. As this is for expression lines it would be ideal for my laughter lines around my eyes.

  2. May 7, 2012 / 6:50 am

    What a great giveaway! Thanks for organizing it. I certainly am in need of some citric acid!

  3. Shelley
    May 7, 2012 / 6:54 am

    Great giveaway :) the products look really good. The product that looked most appealing on my prescription was the Salicylic Acid 300!

  5. Hannah
    May 7, 2012 / 7:12 am

  6. India
    May 7, 2012 / 7:12 am

    I was recommended the oil free quenching fluid, looks like a great product! As i have combination skin i think this product would be great at mattifying my skin throughout the day whilst still keeping it moisturised!

  7. Carla
    May 7, 2012 / 7:12 am

    Hi Ruth – another great giveaway. Product is Arbutin A72 to help with hyperpigmentation!

  8. Stephanie Turner Cahill

  9. NatashaP
    May 7, 2012 / 7:14 am

    Argan A02 was part of my prescription. Im an addict for all things natural and have heard much about this miracle oil. Ive just turned 30 so need to really ramp up my skincare routine – Etat Pur might provide just the regime I was looking for!

    • sally hiller
      May 8, 2012 / 10:46 am

      2 sorts of Argan oil one for culinary use other one for massage/beauty treatment

  10. Caroline Reynolds

    Great giveaway! The most interesting sounding product on my persecription was the Melting Exfoliating Gel, sounds very intriguing! Thanks, Caroline

  11. Bernadine
    May 7, 2012 / 7:16 am

    my one thing that caught my eye on my list of products was the Arbutin for dark spots…would love to give it a try!

    As always love your work and thanks for sharing all the good stuff ;)

  12. Marina

    Melting exfoliating gel – sounds very interesting!

  15. Stephanie
    May 7, 2012 / 7:24 am

    I was recommended the oil-free quenching fluid since I have oily, acne-prone skin! Thanks for hosting this giveaway xx

  16. Gyudy
    May 7, 2012 / 7:26 am

    My product of choice would be the Citric Acid!
    I’m going to Paris in a few days and I’ve added Etat Pur to the list of “places to go”, it all seems so effective and if it’s a Bioderma cousin there’s no doubt it will be amazing!

  17. Cheryl M
    May 7, 2012 / 7:31 am

    I hope I’ve used the Etat Pur site properly! I’ve been advised to use Acmella [30 mg], which sounds delicious, among other things.

  18. Vikki
    May 7, 2012 / 7:32 am

    The questionnaire results suggested Q10. Think I may have to invest in some of these products. Thanks Ruth. :-)

  19. May 7, 2012 / 7:33 am

    Thank you for the amazing giveaway! One of the products that was recommended to me after filling in the questionnaire was ‘Rutin’ for red, blotchy skin. Thanks again!

  20. Flo
    May 7, 2012 / 7:37 am

    I would LOVE the argan 20mg! Thank you x

    May 7, 2012 / 7:37 am

    hi! First of all thank you for this givaway! One of the products in my prescription is the Detoxifying cleansing foam.([email protected]);)

  22. Emma Charlton
    May 7, 2012 / 7:43 am

    The Ectoin looks amazing to me. I am really starting to notice the first signs of sun damage, as I’m allergic to most products that contain and SPF. This looks like a great solution as it’s not full of synthetic nasties :)

  23. Annette Thomas
    May 7, 2012 / 7:44 am

    LW Hyaluronic Acid pure Active

    Wow! I see what you mean about the prices. Have bookemarked site and will definitely try at least this product. I like all the product info they give as well. ie for this one they tell you not to bother with putting a moisturiser on after. I never know whether to or not with some serums

    thanks for all the lovely reviews and tips etc, love your emails in the morning :-)

  24. Piscohof
    May 7, 2012 / 7:47 am

    Awesome giveaway, yes again. I got an interesting-looking Argan product suggested: looks tres interesting.

    ONE of the products that appears on my prescription is Detoxifying cleansing foam.

  26. Li
    May 7, 2012 / 7:51 am

    Citric Acid – AHA is the one I find most appealing!

  27. kirsty forsberg
    May 7, 2012 / 7:53 am

    Hey there Ruth,
    If I were a winner I’d like to try Apigenin for my bags!
    Thanks :)

  28. Manal
    May 7, 2012 / 7:53 am

    Hi Ruth, the item that appeared that I really wanted was Apigenin 25mg for under the eyes. X

  29. Sophie Hemmings
    May 7, 2012 / 7:55 am

    Very kind of you Ruth! :) One of my products was the Salicylic Acid 300 [300 mg].
    Thank you! xx

  30. Ellie B
    May 7, 2012 / 7:58 am

    Hi Ruth,
    What a fantastic giveaway! Out of all my suggested products I’d go for the ‘Oil-free quenching fluid’. It sounds like exactly what my skin needs right now.

  31. Hannah
    May 7, 2012 / 7:58 am

    Genius giveaway! One of my recommendations was apigenin, to correct signs of fatigue in the under eye area! NEED!

  33. Jo
    May 7, 2012 / 8:06 am

    The product I like the look of most in my prescription is the Detoxifying cleansing foam. I’d never heard of this brand before your post the other day, but I’m really interested in what they offer.

  34. Gwen
    May 7, 2012 / 8:06 am

    I have Apigenin in my prescription, I’d love to try it for my terrible dark circles.
    Thanks for the giveaway! Etat Pur sounds amazing, I’ll definitely get my hands on some of the products to try out, since knowing my luck I’ll probably not win haha.

  35. Sultana
    May 7, 2012 / 8:12 am

    I believe I’m the first to comment (yay!) if not then d’oh! :p I was recommended zinc gluconate, don’t exactly know what zinc gluconate is but I’m guessing it’ll do wonders for my skin ( : x x
    P.s. I love your website and YouTube channel Ruth! Oh and how can I forget Mr Bear! So cute!

  36. Finally Breckell
    May 7, 2012 / 8:13 am

    Another fantastic giveaway Ruth. Q10 was part of my prescription.

  37. Emma
    May 7, 2012 / 8:15 am

    Ah, this is so good! After your review I went onto Etat Pur and bought a few bits and pieces and have been telling all of my friends about it. My skin is appalling at the moment because of spending my life in the library with finals, but as a student, some of the stuff recommended is just out of my price range. Etat Pur’s prices are brilliant though, I can’t wait to start using it!

    Well, anyhow, I bought a zinc formula and the facemask. One thing that was recommended by their skin test and which I really regret not buying was the salycilic acid, as my spots are awful at the moment (living off library vending machines isn’t helpful…)

    Cool giveaway!

  38. Romey
    May 7, 2012 / 8:16 am

    Firming Lifting Care sounds just what my skin needs. I love the sound of these products.

  39. Jools
    May 7, 2012 / 8:16 am

    These products look fab. My prescription recommended, amongst other products, the LW Hyaluronic acid for my age-related fine lines – would love to try this. The concept of this website is fab – I love the idea of having a personalised prescription – saves having to trawl through hundreds of products to find the one that’s right for you. xxx

  40. Sandra
    May 7, 2012 / 8:16 am

    Hello Ruth! I suffer from under-eye circles and one of the products I’ve been prescribed in Etat Pur is actually to tackle and reduce the signs of fatigue and smoothe out the eye contour. It’s called “Apigenin” and it apparently contains grapefruit! Sounds good and I am always keen on trying new products.

    Thanks for creating this giveaway.
    Sandra x

    P.S. If it’s a savoury pie, the French call it “tourte” but if you have a sweet tooth it’s actually “tarte” :-D

  41. Preeya
    May 7, 2012 / 8:18 am

    Hi Ruth!
    Did the test yesterday on Etat pur and the physiological cleansing milk caught my eye…about to run out of my bioderma and not going to paris til august! disaster! need a replacement cleanser and this looks very good for my sensitive skin.
    anyway, thanks for making me aware of this brand!

    hope you have a good bank holiday monday xxxx

  42. Inga
    May 7, 2012 / 8:21 am

    I just filled out the questionnaire and there were a lot of great products that were recommended. But my favorite one is the Salicylic Acid 70 pure Active. I love the feeling and the rests of gentle chemical exfoliation. The results are great it fights against my main skin problem blackheads.

    I would love to try out this new skincare line.

    Thank you sooo much :)

  43. Zoe
    May 7, 2012 / 8:25 am

    Just did my questionnaire and the products look great! Definitely like the sound of the melting exfoliating gel they said prescribed for me

  44. Lucy Huggins
    May 7, 2012 / 8:28 am

    Oooh the detoxifying cleansing foam looks interesting! I love a good foamy cleanser ;)

  45. Olga
    May 7, 2012 / 8:28 am

    Argan Pure Active AO2 is one of the products on my list. The one thing that puzzles me here is the size of this product: it comes in a 15 ml bottle and they recommend you to buy 2 bottles. (“To ensure you have enough of the product to complete the treatment, we recommend buying 2 bottles of Argan pure Active”). Why is that? Why not to make a 30 ml bottle? Anyway would be fun to try it:)

  46. Jill
    May 7, 2012 / 8:28 am

    I like the sound of Arbutin!

    Jill x

  47. May 7, 2012 / 8:37 am

    It all looks so lovely! One that caught my eye in my prescription was the micellar purifying cleansing water:) Loving the blog by the way :D

  48. May 7, 2012 / 8:42 am

    I am signed up to AMR exclusive and daily emails!

    I have picked Physiological cleansing milk from my prescription.

  49. Leslie
    May 7, 2012 / 8:42 am

    Hi, Ruth! Love, love, love your blog and your recommendations. So I thought I’d try out for your giveaway.

    One of the Etat Pur prescription rec’s I received was the Propolis (35mg) A23. Anything that can help with calming my skin (blemishes & dullness) sounds ideal. PLUS antioxidants? With all the smoggy LA air, I’m sold.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway (and introducing what sounds like a top-notch line)!

  50. Cathy
    May 7, 2012 / 8:44 am

    I was recommended Ectoin [420 mg] for skin that has high exposure to the sun. I moved to Asia two years ago and I’ve noticed that I get pigment spots now and then from just being outside. I tan quite naturally and quickly, but I guess my skin is not accustomed to the stronger Asian sun exposure.

  51. Annie
    May 7, 2012 / 8:46 am

    Citric Acid – AHA catches my attention because of the pureness of the product and its versatily in use.

  52. Layla
    May 7, 2012 / 8:47 am

    Melting Exfoliating Gel- sounds interesting!

  53. Jess Giles
    May 7, 2012 / 8:49 am

    One product for me after taking the ‘quiz’ was the Purifying Cleansing Gel

    Acmella for expression wrinkles is on my prescription list. I am already hooked, so bad I cannot get it in my country. Do you know if they ship it elsewhere?

  58. Hannah
    May 7, 2012 / 9:02 am

    Apigenin sounds good to me I have no idea how to pronounce it but if it helps minimise dark circles sounds wonderful :) many thanks Ruth x

  59. Kathrin Elsner
    May 7, 2012 / 9:03 am

    The questionaire suggested against my undereye puffiness this serum: Ruscogenin pure Active! Sounds interesting and I would love to try it! :) Thanx Ruth for the opportunity!

  60. Chelsea
    May 7, 2012 / 9:03 am

    Hello, enter me for the giveaway! I already subscribed to AMR Exclusive!!! I can see that the Q10 active can work very well for me…

  62. Magda Sieradzka
    May 7, 2012 / 9:08 am

    Hi Ruth :) One of the things that came up on my prescription was the Citric Acid – AHA [3000 mg]. Thanks! “_

  63. Kirstie
    May 7, 2012 / 9:09 am

    I was surprised to see that ETAT PUR prescribed the salicylic acid as I have quite sensitive skin, but would be intrigued to see if this gets rid of the imperfections I have on my chin. I recently had radiotherapy and found that this really dried out my skin -so I cannot strip it with exfoliator as I usually would without getting ‘scales’! But I love the sound of the melting exfoliator as it appears to be revitalising and replenishing. I also love Argan oil on my hair and notice that this is prescribed for my skin! All in all I am excited by your review and the content of the prescription! It would be fab to get to try the full set out!

  64. Magda Sieradzka
    May 7, 2012 / 9:10 am

    Ruth I already posted a comment but something messed up with my internet connection, so I don’t know if my comment posted. I will write it again:

    One of the things on my prescirption is the Citric Acid – AHA [3000mg]. :)

  65. May 7, 2012 / 9:11 am

    This is a great giveaway – I’ve been thinking about trying Etat Pur for ages! For my oily, acne-prone (teenage!) skin, they recommended the Citric Acid active (3000mg) to brighten and exfoliate my overall complexion!


  66. marion
    May 7, 2012 / 9:12 am

    Hi ruth,

    I did the questionnaire and one of the products that caught my attention is the Melting Exfoliating Gel. It looks very gentle, smooth and I am looking for a gentle exfoliation product at the moment so I should try this one!

    Thank you,


  67. Deniz
    May 7, 2012 / 9:12 am

    I am a AMR: Exclusive member and I love it. :) (fingers crossed, as usual)

    I’d like to state Etat Pur Glabridin [2.5 mg] for dark spots and hyper pigmentation.


  68. Abby
    May 7, 2012 / 9:13 am

    One of the products that appear on my prescription is the salicylic acid for getting rid of blackheads. Honestly I feel I’ve tried everything and I’m now obsessing over this in case it would work! My skin reacted badly to a new primer recently and caused a lot of embaressment so a product like this seems wild!

  69. Queenpette
    May 7, 2012 / 9:15 am

    Hi there, I was just on the site which is great if you can’t go to the store. One of the products which appears for me is Resveratrol A5 for wrinkles. It the same active than in Caudalie because it’s vine extract. Now, I MUST to have it because it seems so desirable to me.I spend the week-end in the french country side but now I can’t imagine not trying A5 before the end of the week!See you soon. Have a great day.

  70. Agata
    May 7, 2012 / 9:16 am

    I’m interested in this product Oat [2 mg] since it helps with flushing and irritation. Sounds like something for me.

  71. Chi
    May 7, 2012 / 9:17 am

    I’d really like to try Etat Pur; one of the actives on my prescription is salicylic acid 300 :)

  72. May 7, 2012 / 9:17 am

    Apigenin [25 mg] – the only one which I don’t know how to pronounce.

    I’ve had stuff sitting in my basket since you posted about etat pur but felt to guilty about buying as I’m a student (for one more week!!! yiy) without a job tagged to the end of it so need to save as much as I can so I don’t go broke… which I nearly am… Would be nice to win =)

  73. maria molina
    May 7, 2012 / 9:19 am

    First, thank you for the giveaway!!!!!!

    in the questionnaire I ave this product that I’m looking forward to having!!! Acmella [30 mg]

  74. Jenny
    May 7, 2012 / 9:20 am

    This is awesome stuff Ms. Crilly! I didn’t know if we could get it in the U.S. or not because of their shipping guarantees. I took the test and picked Propolis because it sounded fun. Thanks for the opportunity!

  75. judith duncan
    May 7, 2012 / 9:21 am

    I’m particularly interested in the Arbutin pure Active product

  76. sarah
    May 7, 2012 / 9:25 am

    Hey Ruth, great giveaway I’d like to participate.
    One of the products that were the result of the questionaire is the “express purifiying mask” I really like masks but don’t own one currently.

  77. Nicolina
    May 7, 2012 / 9:26 am

    I have been struggling with redness for a very long time and it’s been hard to find products that do a good job and are also suitable for my combination skin. One of their questionnaire results was Rutin, which I’d love to have the opportunity to try! However, it comes only in 15 ml tubes (tiny!) and they recommend using it over the entire face for two months…

  78. AngelGT
    May 7, 2012 / 9:27 am

    Thank You Ruth for setting up this competition! J’Adore l’Acide Salicylique 300mg (Salicylic Acid 300), it has improved my skin!! Top notch as the brits say :)

  80. Florence
    May 7, 2012 / 9:29 am

    My prescription included Citric Acid – AHA (3000mg) for a dull complexion and loss of radiance. I LOVE the idea of an individual skincare prescription.

  81. AngelGT
    May 7, 2012 / 9:32 am

    Thank You so much Ruth for setting up this competition! J’adore l’Acide Salicylique 300mg (the Salicylic Acid 300), it has improved my skin, especially my horrendous spots. Top notch product as the brits say! XOXOMerci bisous AngelGT

    Well…Acmella sounds interesting. It would be nice to find out if it works! ;)

  84. Kristina
    May 7, 2012 / 9:40 am

    I’m most intrigued by the Citric Acid – AHA for brightening the complexion.
    I’d love to try more Etat Pur products, but apparently they don’t ship to Germany, so this giveaway might be my only chance ^^

  85. Jen
    May 7, 2012 / 9:52 am

    I am almost always shiny, and adding more foundation powder to my face just makes me look.. well, powdery. As a broke university student I’m hesitant to spend megapounds on product that look amazing but *might* not work for me, so I’d love to try the Balancing Matifying Care cream/powder!

  86. Sarina
    May 7, 2012 / 9:55 am

    The Q10 was one of the items in my prescription box. Only 20 but I am seeing some fine lines around the mouth area. That’s probably due to applying the salicyclic acid on that area when it’s that time of the mouth, it’s drying that area out. Catch 22, deal with the pimples on the side of the mouth or treat it and deal with fine lines.

    Hopefully if I get chosen, the Q10 will do alleviate this problem.

  87. Venus
    May 7, 2012 / 10:00 am

    Ok, so this product appeared on my prescription: Melting moisturizing cream

    Btw, you mentioned about a quarterly newsletter above. I’ve subscribed to AMR Exclusive, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never received any newsletter. Has any been sent out? Or is it just that I’m kinda blind? lol

  88. Lisa
    May 7, 2012 / 10:03 am

    Hi Ruth, I’m a subscriber to AMR: Exclusive and have done Etat Pur quesionnaire. One of my recommended products was the Oil-free quenching fluid. Thanks for this giveaway!

  90. Daphne Broidioi
    May 7, 2012 / 10:07 am

    I did the questionnaire and got seven products recommended. The one I think I would benefit most of, is the Salicylic Acid 70.
    Thanks for the opportunity!
    I’m keeping my fingers crossed :)

  92. Tracy
    May 7, 2012 / 10:09 am

    One of the products prescribed was the Citric acid – AHA (3000mg).

    I would love to try this brand especially because we can’t get it in Australia.

  93. Stefania
    May 7, 2012 / 10:09 am

    really enjoy this giveaway, cause I’m a skincare freak too.. the product that I’m most excited is the apigenin(25mg) for dark circles and eyecontour area!!!

  94. Melanie

    OH this made my heart flutter!! I already subscribed to AMR exclusive! Yay!

    Anyway, the product I’m super intrigued about is the A21 70mg salicylic acid treatment. I’ve never used a BHA exfoliant before and I’ve heard great things about it in terms of clearing out pores and reducing blackheads! I’ve got terrible large pores on my nose and I’d really like to them go down in size!

    Thanks for this, Ruth :)

    Thanks for this opportunity to test EtatPur. have a nice day

    I am most intrigued by the Vitamin PP. As i have dry and dull skin this looks like a product i wish to try. The little prescription questionnaire was very quick and easy! I love AMR posts, Keep going Ruth :D x

  102. Jennie
    May 7, 2012 / 10:26 am

    The citric acid: radiance boosting & evens out the complexion, perfect for me!

  103. Rachel Allenden
    May 7, 2012 / 10:29 am

    This looks amazing!
    I’ve done the questionnaire and it gave me the one product I had my eye on!
    The Express purifying mask looks fab and I’d love
    to win :)

  104. Rita Mendes
    May 7, 2012 / 10:30 am

  105. Lucy Freeman
    May 7, 2012 / 10:32 am

    One of my prescribed products was Zinc Gluconate – I’ve been having some breakouts which is a bit upsetting as I had really good skin for most of my teens/early 20s so getting breakouts now has knocked my confidence – would love to try this and see if it can help improve my skin issues :)

  106. Ruth Amos
    May 7, 2012 / 10:32 am

    I love salicylic acid!

  107. Michelle Binder
    May 7, 2012 / 10:32 am

    The most interesting item I found in my test results was “Oat (2mg)”. Although I’m not entirely sure whether it’s supposed to be used as a moisturizer, serum or anything else it says it helps with red, sensitive skin and sounds quite about right for me :D

  108. May 7, 2012 / 10:34 am

    Hi Ruth! Loved the post on the Etat Pur skin care range! I went along to the website and one of the products recommended to me was the 300 Salicylic acid for blemish treatment. Their range makes sense, and I love the idea of the A treatments and B! Of course, I am signed up for AMR exclusive and I receive daily emails with your updates (which I love!) Thanks for the giveaway!

    One of the products that I had been recommended is something called… Propolis 35mg. It’s supposedly for acne-prone, dull skin which is something I have been cursed it unfortunately… In the site, Propolis has antibacterial, regenerating and antioxidant properties. Ooh, sounds promising eh?
    Anyways, cross my fingers to get picked Ruth!

  110. Anna
    May 7, 2012 / 10:36 am

    A product that appeared on my prescription at the first place was Salicylic Acid 300 [300 mg].

  111. julie
    May 7, 2012 / 10:36 am

    I got my prescription and the detoxifying cleansing foam sounds delicious. :)
    Definately need something for when my skin feels yucky!

  112. Karine
    May 7, 2012 / 10:38 am

    In my Etat Pur suggestions was Apigenin. I am a little bit addicted to skin care and if there’s one thing I seem to love the most it’s eye products. Not only does this fit the bill – it’s GRAPEFRUIT. I’m a sucker for the smell, so fresh and clean and yummy :) and hopefully will work on my always tired eyes!

  113. Natasha Pinto
    May 7, 2012 / 10:39 am

    I like the look of the Salicylic Acid 300 as I am always on the lookout for something which will make those occasional pesky spots disappear!

    Thanks Ruth

  118. May 7, 2012 / 10:46 am

    Detoxifying cleansing foam is one of the products I was recommended and for £8.80 thats a bargain!

  119. May 7, 2012 / 10:46 am

    I have relatively ok skin- but I do suffer from congestion around my nose and chin- and if i don’t act on it then it gets really bad. Im also quite a bad at keeping up with a complex skin care routine- im often working late and up early so i prefer something quick, easy yet effective- so I have no excuse to not do it! Saying that I am a believer in good products and hate using wipes to clean my face. For me the product that stood out as a good everyday solution for my skin is the detoxifying cleansing foam- I like the fact it’s a foaming cleanser as i find them quick and the least hassle of face cleansers, yet rich means that it won’t dry my cheek areas yet detoxifying which I think would be good formmy black head areas. And i need to feel refreshed in the mornings!
    That’s it i think

    May 7, 2012 / 10:49 am

    The product that catches my eye in the Etat Pur prescription I received was the Light moisturizing emulsion, because the description of the product being light as air, yet with immediate moisturisation sounds like the perfect remedy for my combination skin!

  121. Jerusa
    May 7, 2012 / 10:52 am

    My most interesting product suggested: Propolis [35mg]. Never thought this would be good to treat blemishes…

  122. Lesleylhb
    May 7, 2012 / 11:00 am

    Firming lifting care.I love the look of this range and would love the opportunity to try it!

  123. Svenja
    May 7, 2012 / 11:03 am

    Oooh… more beautifying stuff from La France. Sounds too good to be true :) Would love to try the Propolis Targeted Treatment.

  124. Svenja
    May 7, 2012 / 11:04 am

    Oooh… exciting stuff from La France. Sounds too good to be true. Would love to try the Propolis Targeted Treatment :)

  125. Jo
    May 7, 2012 / 11:07 am

    The product that I’d be most excited to try is the Express purifying mask.

  126. Narelle Blanchard
    May 7, 2012 / 11:09 am

    Oat [2 mg] was on my skin prescription. This is such a cool idea – I actually did the “quiz” on the Etat Pur website yesterday when I saw your blog post.

  127. Rebekah McVitie
    May 7, 2012 / 11:10 am

    Salic Acid – never used this before so it would be very interesting to see how it works for my blocked enlarged pores.

  128. Jean
    May 7, 2012 / 11:11 am

    I have oily, sensitive skin. So, it was exciting to see specific products targeted for that very reason. The one that caught my eye was Propolis (pure active-A23). I always love products derived from nature and actually did a little research in the past about the benefits of honey and propolis. Propolis seemed perfect for my skin type because it eliminates the bacterial origins that start blemishes while having a soothing, restorative effect also, good for sensitive skin! I wish there were more products like this where I’m from! sigh.

  129. David Cropper
    May 7, 2012 / 11:15 am

    Upon completing the analysis, I was chosen the Apigenin eye cream as one of the products. I’m fascinated by what these products could do for us as you made me so excited for them! While it seems they might have diagnosed me as more oily, they have two different products for certain things for targeting different parts of my combination skin! Something so obvious never would have truly occured to me to try! Thank you for introducing me to the brand and to the many brands I never would have known of without you! I look forward to your quarterly newsletter regardless!

  130. Jan Eric Skevik
    May 7, 2012 / 11:17 am

    Hi Ruth!
    Is always a pleasure to read your newsletter.
    I’ve shown your video about french farmacies
    to all my french friends. I loved Embryolise’s
    moisturiser. Perfect for winter time.

    This is one of the products that came out from
    my Etat Pur questionnaire:

    Salicylic Acid 70 [70 mg]

    I’ve got my fingers crossed.



  131. Kim
    May 7, 2012 / 11:19 am

    I’d love to try the Salicyclic acid 300 mg as I have quite a lot of blackheads etc. that I’d love to get rid of and I’ve been after a good exfoliator for a while :D Thanks! x

  132. Jelena Mayer
    May 7, 2012 / 11:20 am

    Dear Ruth, I think this product Argan [20 mg] Argan leaf titrated extract Pure Active A02 is great for first signs of ˝ageing˝…

  133. SaM
    May 7, 2012 / 11:20 am

    Oh,boy…I couldn’t select enough options to cover all my skin concerns…That’s definitely bad in my books!Well,hey-ho!There are worse problems people have to deal with…
    Anyway,Ruth your giveaways are always a thing of joy!Amazing as usual!
    Thank you for the effort you put into everything!xxx

  135. David Cropper
    May 7, 2012 / 11:30 am

    Upon completing the analysis, I was chosen the Apigenin eye cream as one of the products in prescription. I look forward to the chance of trying this as I have never heard of Apigenin, and I would love to see if it has an affect on my CHRONIC dark circles. While post-acne hyperpigmentation and ocasional spots are fading from my problems, my dark circles only ever hardly dissipate. Thank you for introducing me to this brand and to the many brands I never would have known of without you! I look forward to your quarterly newsletter regardless!

  136. May 7, 2012 / 11:30 am

    Etat Pur giveaway? Oui! Oui! For my oily troubled Asian skin, the Detoxifying Cleansing Foam sounds great. I don’t know if it’s just me but hearing the word “detox” makes me feel better. Maybe, it will be good enough that I dont need to resort to double cleansing every now and then to get clean fresh skin.

  137. May 7, 2012 / 11:31 am

    This giveaway is great! I think I would like to try the Salicylic Acid 300, the other products seem interesting too but I’m in search of a product that would help remove some hyperpigmentation spots that I have and blemishes that I get now and then, I think this could help.
    My email adress is [email protected]

  138. Christy

    One of the products prescribed to me: Citric Acid – AHA [3000 mg] – I’d love to try it to brighten up my face a bit!

  140. sorcha
    May 7, 2012 / 11:38 am

    Done the survey and the Apigenin product for dark circles looks good and isnt too pricey.

  141. Sophie Beer
    May 7, 2012 / 11:40 am

    Hi Ruth-great giveaway, I really enjoyed reading about ETAT in your previous posts-seems to have the active ingredients of French skincare in an affordable way, that’s what I’m about! I have really problem skin, combination, very fair, acne prone, milia etc, would love to try this range. The item that most appeals to me from my ‘prescription’ is the ‘radiant complexion care’ as I am always chasing the illusive happy, healthy skin look but have not yet achieved it.

    Thanks for the generous give away Ruth, I like others, love reading your blog and tweets.

  142. May 7, 2012 / 11:43 am

    Hey, Ruth! This is such a nice giveaway!
    I took the questionnaire and the product that looks best to me is the Acmella pure Active against expression wrinkles. I soso hope I win this!
    Thanks for the chance

  143. Marie
    May 7, 2012 / 11:45 am

  144. sqrandomly
    May 7, 2012 / 11:45 am

    well one of the products was the Melting moisturizing cream. I hope their claims are true on how it absorbs fast.

  145. May 7, 2012 / 11:46 am

    I’m really interested in this brand, sounds like they have a refreshing approach to skin care, my top product is the salicylic acid.

  146. Anna

  156. Hazel
    May 7, 2012 / 12:17 pm

    Hi Ruth, I completed the questionnaire and was recommended this: Salicylic Acid 300 [300 mg] which actually looks really interesting, as I never thought of applying pure treatments to my skin!

    Thank you for another great giveaway Ruth!


  157. Meya S

    I did the prescription and one of the products recommended to me was Micellar purifying cleansing water. I like Micellar waters so I think I will try this at some point if I don’t win the prize.

  163. May 7, 2012 / 12:33 pm

    LW Hyaluronic Acid – I’m really interested to see if a product like this really makes a difference to more mature skin.

    Oh my! These products look amazing. The one that caught my eye, however, is the Ectoin 420 mg. Being very fair and now exposed to a lot more daylight/sun through work, I’m on a quest to protect my skin as best as I can!

  165. Mel
    May 7, 2012 / 12:39 pm

    I’ve been on their site few times.. as I’m so boring, and a total skincare junkie.. Acmella caught my attention from my perscribed skin products.. why because apparently Acmella flowers have a “botox-like” effect. They contain myorelaxant molecules that act directly on the face’s micro-contractions to smooth out the skin and quickly restore a smoother appearance. Well who couldn’t be hooked with claims like that.. better than ironing my skin any day!!

  166. Gaya
    May 7, 2012 / 12:40 pm

    Hey Ruth! Just done the Etat Pur questionnaire and, well, let’s face it one of the product that appears is Salicylic Acid 70 for my everlasting blackheads (huh!). Would love to win (as everyone else would, I’m sure). Thanks Ruth for the opportunity! XXX

  168. Lorna Patrick
    May 7, 2012 / 12:45 pm

    i’m signed up to your quarterly email!

    Most interesting item on my prescription would be the melting moisturising cream.

  171. Pavlina
    May 7, 2012 / 12:59 pm

    Etat Pur sounds too good to be true. Hope I’m lucky.
    Smoothing eye contour care it is!

  172. Chris
    May 7, 2012 / 12:59 pm

    The Oil Free Quenching liquid was on my list along with many other items. The line looks great and the first thing I wondered was how the micellar cleansing water of Etat compares to Bioderma Crealine H2O. Could it possibly be the same formula, I wonder? I just ordered another 500ml of Bioderma from Amazon, I love it so much. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. Love your site!

  173. Sonia M.

    I’d love the Salicylic Acid 70 to get rid of my dilated pores! They make my life a living hell (what do you mean, drama queen?)

  174. Hazel
    May 7, 2012 / 12:59 pm

    One product from the list was Salicylic Acid 300 [300 mg] : ) thanks and goodluck to all x

  175. Madeleine Fagan

  177. MissPapadita
    May 7, 2012 / 1:16 pm

    So, I’ve been recommended a couple of products BUT if do not win, I’d probably buy myself already the ARGAN!

    Thanks very much for yet another great giveaway!!

  178. yuearn
    May 7, 2012 / 1:17 pm

    Hey,Ruth:)I’m from Malaysia and I’m absolutely obsess with AMR!
    I’ve done the Etat Pur questionnaire.I cited “First Wrinkles”, “Dark Circles” and “Pollution:Skin fragility due to pollution” as my primary concerns.A08 Argan and A08 Apigenin were suggested on the prescription.But what catches my eye really is B01 Micellar Cleasing Water because I’ve never use cleasing water before and I’ve been using very strong skincare products(which aggravates my skin)and would very like to try something mild for a change.
    So,I hope I can win!
    AMR Rocks!!!

  179. Pipa
    May 7, 2012 / 1:34 pm


    My thoughts:
    Zinc Gluconate looks quiet good as it says it’ll keep the sebum secretion under control and Mimosa tenuiflora [75 mg]is probably my least favourite as it says it’s for mature line and i’ll probably scared to use this as i am only 22 because its a concentrated serum.. I got this result from selecting scars left over from spots.

    Regards, :)

  180. Alexa
    May 7, 2012 / 1:35 pm

    ah great giveaway!

    I did this the other day and one of the things i got was the Propolis, found it interesting as it said it was a natural substance produced by bees. have no idea what it would look/feel like though!

    thanks x

  181. Kelly
    May 7, 2012 / 1:42 pm

    The melting exfoliating gel sounds incredible!

  182. jane
    May 7, 2012 / 1:45 pm

    The ONE product that caught my eye was the “Express purifying mask”.
    It may not be a super innovative new mask but in the description it says that “the mask leaves the skin clean, smooth and velvety” and that sounds very promising and good so I would try this one out first, because a good and low priced mask is hard to come by.
    Unfortunately it looks like Etat Pur doesn’t deliver to Germany.So I will hope and see!

  183. Katerina DeAngelo
    May 7, 2012 / 1:46 pm

    I would love to win one of these sets! I did my questionnaire and one of the product suggested was Apigenin.

    Hey Ruth. I’m a 20 year old student, just about to finish my first year. For past few months my skin has been very dry and dull, I’m guessing it might be from stress and lack of sleep. I have looked at your Etat Pur review and I was very impressed with the variation of products and the price! I was considering ordering few things, but then I thought I might try my luck in your giveaway. I carefully filled in the questionnaire and come up with the result for Citric Acid- AHA (3000 mg). I have heard that it does wonders to the skin, and heals acne scars, which I’m suffering from too.

  185. maria
    May 7, 2012 / 1:56 pm

    Hi Ruth, I like the look of the Zinc gluconate pure active product as I love the idea of really targeting those dodgy shiny areas (nose!) that just won’t behave with a few drops of dedicated product, rather than my usual clumsy attempt which always results in too much squeezed out of the tube (or whatever) and wasted whilst the nose stays resolutely shiny (sigh). Also it looks compact enough to carry about and top up if need be. All helpful in conquering the shine… X

    This is a wonderful giveaway. The product that most caught my eyes was the Citric Acid – AHA, it may be a good option to get rid of a dull complexion.

    Hi! Fantastic giveaway!! One of the products that appear on my prescription is Zinc Gluconate. Would be happy to try it ;)

  199. May 7, 2012 / 2:43 pm

    I made the questionnaire and I found this absolutely perfect product for me, the Salicylic Acid 70 [70 mg]. It says this would not only treat blemishes and blackheads when they have already appeared, but also purify and exfoliate my skin and regulate the pH on the surface of my skin to keep it mositurized. Gosh, it’s simply perfect! I would love to be the winner of one of the packs, it would be sooo nice to have this at home and get rid of my skin problems…
    Well, wish me luck (I’ll wish luck to myself, anyway hehe)
    Love! Leire

  200. May 7, 2012 / 2:47 pm

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I got the Salicylic Acid 70 in my product recommendations and it sounds a lot more concentrated than other drugstore brands! All their products seem so reasonable too, I may have to switch up some of my other products to make room for these in my routine now!

    hi there
    One of the products I was recommended was Argan.
    This is very appealing as it treats 1st signs of wrinkles.

    I was also interested in the ‘Melting exfoliating gel’ as I use a similar one from a brand called Gatineau.

    The least appealing to me was the Salicylic acid which aims to treats blackheads. But I wouldn’t want to use something so harsh on the skin as it can cause dryness and therefore encourages fine lines

    May 7, 2012 / 3:19 pm

    Hi there!!!!

    You are amazing!! I just took the quiz and got so many options for my skin type! I really want to try the eye contour cream! I am 32 and have yet to find an eye cream that works!

    May 7, 2012 / 5:04 pm

    Hi Ruth, this range looks very good, it seems to contain quality ingredients but it is very reasonably priced. My only negative is that it only lets you pick four skin concerns (I have several more) and it recommends alot of products. I counted 12 in total. One I would definately be interested in purchasing is the Glabridin for hyperpigmentation.

  232. Samantha

    Hi Ruth,
    thanks for this great giveaway, especially as Etat Pur is only delivering to a number of countries as of now and none of them are German-speaking.
    The product that caught my eye the most is “Radiant complexion care”.
    Best Karin

  243. Rachel Hamblin
    May 7, 2012 / 6:17 pm

    Really like the Etat Pur, web page. I’ve not heard of this before and I like that prescription idea to give you guidance one what might be best for my skin.

    Is the the right place to enter the comp? Anyways one of the products that was recommended for me was the Argan(20mg) for ‘first wrinkles’ or loss of firmness.

    Thanks for all the great posts. Keep them coming.


  244. Ruby Blue
    May 7, 2012 / 6:27 pm

    The product that I want the most is the Ectoin [420 mg], helping to restore UV damage and preparing the skin for sun exposure. I have blond/red hair, blue eyes, pale skin, and I manage to sunburn every year. So I’ve been looking for a product like this for a long time :)

    My IDEAL product from this range would be the D-Panthenol – Vitamin B5 [550 mg], as I suffer from eczema on my face and it’s really hard to manage sometimes, I basically turn into a lizard! It’s not nice :(

  261. Alexa
    May 7, 2012 / 7:08 pm

    I picked Aloe Vera (75 mg). I went for the least harsh one of the options I got; the brand sounds great, but I’m always a bit tentative about putting anything new on my skin, so that’s what I went with.

    Hi Ruth! I just discovered your website a week ago and my sleep hours redused dramatically as I am always here reading the latest updates:))) Just love it!!! So the product from Etat Pur that I liked is Citric Acid- AHA(3000mg). Thanks;)

  313. Elaine
    May 7, 2012 / 9:14 pm

    Hi Ruth, thanks for the heads up with this range…questionnaire recommended a dozen products for me (surprise surprise). The one that sticks out is Enoxolone 280 for very reactive skin. Thanksxxx

  314. Jennifer
    May 7, 2012 / 9:15 pm

    One of my suggested products from the assessment: Melting exfoliating gel!

  315. Robin
    May 7, 2012 / 9:17 pm

    I think the salicylic acid 300 would make a world of difference to my teenage skin

  316. Kristina
    May 7, 2012 / 9:20 pm

    One of the products on my recommended list was Citric Acid AHA. I’ve not used an acid product on my face before, but would be very interested to see how it would work!

  317. May 7, 2012 / 9:22 pm

    One of my Pur recommendations was the Argan 20mg. I hope I win so I can try this line out, it sounds lovely.

    Thanks Ruth! xo

    May 7, 2012 / 9:27 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway! What caught my eye out of my prescription was the Radiant Complexion Care.

  320. Michael
    May 7, 2012 / 9:28 pm

    The very first one that popped up for me, Apigenin, is what I’d pick. It says it helps dark circles and anything that says that I will buy in a heartbeat. I’m very self conscious about my dark circles.

    Thanks for a great giveaway Ruth!

  321. Kirsty R
    May 7, 2012 / 9:29 pm

    What a great giveaway. The product which appealed to me the most in my personalised prescription was the Melting exfoliating gel. Thanks!

  322. May 7, 2012 / 9:29 pm

    Etat pur recommends that I use Apigenin to treat my dark circles. Pie is indeed “tarte” in French.
    Thanks x

    Hi! Great giveaway!! The one that caught my eye is Propolis! :)

    Thanks :X

  327. Serena Wong
    May 7, 2012 / 9:45 pm

    The melting aloe vera (75mg) sounds good, I’m in need of something like that right now :)
    Thanks :)

  328. Nicole
    May 7, 2012 / 9:47 pm

    How exciting! The website recommended a few products, but the one that caught my eye and curiosity was A43, Enoxolene.

  329. Vicky
    May 7, 2012 / 9:47 pm

    Hi Ruth! i love your blog and videos! salicylic acid 70 sounds interesting! xx

  330. Rachel
    May 7, 2012 / 9:50 pm

    Ooh the apigenin looks good :-) this brand looks lovely and its good to see a brand that caters for more than four skin types ( dry,very dry, combo and oily) and provides products based on your problems rather than generalising you to on type. and also not wasting all he money on packaging :-) I must try this brand :-)

  331. Natalie Robinson
    May 7, 2012 / 9:54 pm

    Apigenin – I neeeed a dark circles solution before I get married in August!

  332. Beth Smith
    May 7, 2012 / 10:18 pm

    Wow, the products all look so good! I have combination skin but have had major breakout problems over the last year since I turned 25, so the Express purifying mask sounds great (..absorbs those pesky toxins away, really? Fab!)

  333. Rachel Oxtoby
    May 7, 2012 / 10:24 pm

    Apigenin [25 mg]

    Great giveaway Ruth, thanks!

    Hi Ruth,

    I did the questionnaire and I would like to try Acmella Pure Active for my expression wrinkles on my forehead and my mouth area.

    Thank You!

  335. May 7, 2012 / 10:44 pm

    One of the products i was suggested is Apegenin(god knows what it means), but its for dark under eye circles and thats my biggest skin issue so far!Absolutely nothing has treated it!Love the giveaway, would be nice to try their range.

  336. Kimi
    May 7, 2012 / 10:56 pm

    I would really love to try the Salicylic Acid 300 as I have tried a few things for oily skin and they don’t work as well as they claim. Love your blog, it’s informative as well as witty and fun.x x

  337. Jamie
    May 7, 2012 / 11:16 pm

    yay for pie! one of the products recommended for me is the micellar cleansing water.

  341. May 8, 2012 / 12:20 am

    Thanks for yet another great giveaway:D I think I needs me some Rutin:D Wish they delivered to Portugal, but fingers crossed they will soon.

  342. Jessa
    May 8, 2012 / 12:26 am

    I don’t know, they all look very helpful! However, I was really drawn to the description of the detoxifying cleansing foam: “an instant feeling of well-being”. Feeling of well-being? Good. Instant? Even better. Thanks so much for the give-away Ruth!

  343. Megsg
    May 8, 2012 / 12:35 am

    very excited about this range. I’m a AMR Exclusive convert. I have done my skin prescription & Ruscogenin was 1 of my recommended products. Fingers crossed. Megs xxxx

  344. May 8, 2012 / 12:38 am

    One of the products that appear on my prescription is Q10. I’m really having a hard time choosing the right product that will suit my skin. Hopefully, this brand would answer my dilemma.

  345. Bethany Hern
    May 8, 2012 / 12:51 am

    The Rutin looks intriguing for my sensitive skin!

    Firstly i wanna say: i absolutely LOVE your blog!! =)
    I read it every single day, without fail!
    Secondliy, i wanted to ask you if you have any tips and tricks on how to keep your feet smooth (mine are the opposite, but i won’t go too far into that ;))
    Have a nice day!

    Would love to try the Light moisturizing emulsion, as I am looking for a new moisturizer for my combination/oily skin. This might just fit the bill, French skincare seem to always agree with my skin – perhaps it’s something in the water!
    cheers from New York

  348. dominica
    May 8, 2012 / 2:07 am

    i’d love to try this range! i’m a skincare addict and unfortunately etat pur don’t deliver to my neck of the woods :( one of my recommendations was the q10 :)

  349. poorani
    May 8, 2012 / 2:44 am

    I would like to try the Citric Acid AHA.

  350. Sofia
    May 8, 2012 / 3:41 am

    This past months I have been having a terrible time with break outs and with dull-looking skin. Morning and night I do my cleaning routine but not seems to be working! Along with a frustrating-no results-routine I have been looking around for make-up to give off the impression of dewy skin and clear skin…but no luck! My birthday is at the end of this month, which means I could be in luck…I could have the chance to go out looking amazing! I think after taking the test (choosing 3 seems so unfair) I think I like “Propolis pure Active” because it helps with break outs and with dull-looking skin…not to mention its made by bees!

  351. Tia Linfoot
    May 8, 2012 / 6:51 am

    Hi Ruth,

    The Zinc Gluconate has caught me eye. My main problem is hideous spots and the dark spots they leave behind!

    Many thanks!

  352. Mathilde
    May 8, 2012 / 7:36 am

    One of the products recommended for me is Citric Acid for dull complection and loss of radiance. I think this is a really good idea. This is on top of my wishlist, but my birthday is in July, so it would be really nice to win this. Thank you so much for doing this giveaway.

  353. lisabeth
    May 8, 2012 / 7:44 am

    Hi Ruth,

    This brand looks great. The melting exfoliating gel and micellar cleansing water are two products I would like to test from the brand.


  354. Becca
    May 8, 2012 / 7:53 am

    I love their customized approach to beauty–and ALL their products seem fab!!! One of the products recommended for me was the Argan (for first wrinkles, etc.). Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway, Ruth!

  355. Ayla
    May 8, 2012 / 8:01 am

    I was recommended the Arbutin. I want something that can help fade those long lasting post-acne spots.
    I don’t usually suffer from acne, But when I get a spot, It takes so long to disappear completely..

  356. May 8, 2012 / 8:08 am

    I’m quite intrigued by the Zinc Gluconate that was recommended!

  357. Amanda
    May 8, 2012 / 8:09 am

    Hiya Ruth – these products look excellent and such great value! The product I would be interested in trying is LW Hyaluronic Acid. Amanda :)

  358. Holly
    May 8, 2012 / 8:25 am

    So hard to decide! But I think the product that interests me the most is the Citric Acid x

  359. FR
    May 8, 2012 / 8:38 am

    Hi Ruth
    This was very interesting indeed. I’m also impressed by the ingredients breakdown as they appear to have thrown out all the rubbish that’s usually the staple in so many skin care products! When I went through it the ones that stood out for me were the salicylic acid and propolis (not to mention that propolis sounds ancient and full of skin goodness).

    Also, how do you keep your skin clear after you’ve been to the gym? Every time I go I breakout in spots the next day or day after. Its getting me down Ruth. Advice please!!!

    THANK YOU!!!

    • Ruth
      May 8, 2012 / 9:41 am

      @FR are you cleansing properly before AND after? With water, not just a wipe? xx

  361. Niamh Norton
    May 8, 2012 / 8:50 am

    I have already been using a few bits from this brand including the Salicylic Acid and Citric Acid AHA which are both fab. The one item from my questionnaire results that sounds really good is Acmella for expression lines, this will definitely be in my next order.

  362. Erinn

    The product that most catches my eye is Oil-free Quenching Fluid :-)

  363. Sarah
    May 8, 2012 / 9:07 am

    Hi Ruth!
    Of the products recommended to me from the questionnaire I’d probably say I’m most interested in Apigenin – I’ve got terrible dark circles under my eyes so if this does actually ‘reduce signs of fatigue’ as it says it does I’d be a very happy woman!!
    Great giveaway:) xx

  364. Edina

    From the number of products the one that caught my eye was Citric Acid – AHA [3000 mg]. Thanks for another amazing giveaway!

  366. May 8, 2012 / 10:07 am

    After filling out the questionnaire, I find myself intrigued by the products, esp by the Citric Acid – AHA and the Rich nourishing cream for my terribly dehydrated and dull skin.

  367. Tina

    Etat Pur Firming lifting Care-says it all really! My emotions and my face could do with a lift !

  368. Naomi
    May 8, 2012 / 10:25 am

    This is such a lovely giveaway especially for those of us who Etat Pur will not ship to :) Anyway took the evaluation and was recommended Ruscogenin. I’d love to try it for my puffy eyes and dark circles even though I did feel rather dumb when I read the description that stated it was a very well known molecule and yet I’ve never heard of it before. LOL! Hopefully they will one day ship internationally as there seem to be many products I’d love to try from this range.

  369. Beatriz
    May 8, 2012 / 10:50 am

  375. Nina
    May 8, 2012 / 11:43 am

    One of the products that appear was the Salicylic Acid 300 [300 mg]!

    Argan sounds interesting. Pity Etat Pur doesn’t ship to Australia!! So I’d love to win a set to try!

  379. Hayley
    May 8, 2012 / 12:03 pm

    The product that appealed to me the most is Apigenin, those puffy eyes, dark circles & crows feet get me down some days!! Age is upon me! :)

  380. Goretti
    May 8, 2012 / 12:03 pm

    Hi! The product that attracts me more is the salycilic acid as i’ve heard really good things about it and the micellar water!! and hopefully i will have my teenage skin back now that im getting older ;)

    Great website!!!

  381. Katie B
    May 8, 2012 / 12:42 pm

  385. May 8, 2012 / 1:12 pm

    I absolutely love Etat Pur’s approach!
    After doing the questionnaire (hard to pick 4 problems..!) i think the product I’d have to pick is the Acmella (30mg) for my expression wrinkles that are rapidly spreading across my forehead!
    Amazing giveaway :)

  386. Louise
    May 8, 2012 / 1:16 pm

    Hi Ruth,
    Ooh Im excited to discover this brand! I love the idea of a face prescription! The product thats caught my eye is the Oat (2mg), as I have slight redness of the face but am always wary as to buying redness treatments as they are often expensive and don’t work.

    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  388. Nuraan
    May 8, 2012 / 2:22 pm

  394. Karin
    May 8, 2012 / 3:47 pm

    apart from the Salicylic acid 70 as recommended for my skin I would like to try the ultra-moisturizing care as well, because I recently found out when I moisturize enough it does wonders with my skin :-)

  395. Hayley Johnson
    May 8, 2012 / 4:03 pm

    Hi Ruth, the Etat Pur survey prescribed me Salicylic Acid 70 [70 mg]to treat blemishes and blackheads. Thanks for the opportunity to get some of this amazing stuff :)

  401. May 8, 2012 / 6:01 pm

    The items which appealed me the most were ruscoginen for the puffiness and apigenin for the dark circles.

  402. maja
    May 8, 2012 / 6:13 pm

    Its the whole idea of mixing specific actives together that sounds most appealing and interesting but was I to single one product out-propolis is the one I’d love to try as it combats not only spots but also dull complexion…

  403. May 8, 2012 / 6:35 pm

    This brand looks amazing and is definitely affordable! The Melting exfoliating gel sounds so good! Thanks! xx

  404. Natasha
    May 8, 2012 / 6:38 pm

    May 8, 2012 / 6:44 pm

    I read your post on Etat this morning and had a browse on the website and loved the products.

  414. Sophiabencks
    May 8, 2012 / 9:08 pm

    I have been recommended the Citric Acid – AHA [3000 mg] to lift a dull complextion. I like the sound of it as I am really into exfoliators that don’t use little bits which scratch my skin, so this treatment with Citric Acid sounds right up my street!

  415. Ursula Middelboe
    May 8, 2012 / 9:20 pm

  424. May 9, 2012 / 5:44 am

    I’ve actually got oily, blemish-prone skin, but what caught my eye was the ellagic acid! If it can repair a smoker’s skin I wonder what it could do for a nonsmoker? I love that they name their products by their main ingredient, so even if you don’t choose to use their line, you’ll know what ingredients to look for when searching for other helpful products! Anyway, thank you! :)

  425. Sarah Lee
    May 9, 2012 / 8:17 am

    The product from my personal prescription that I’d be most interested to try is the Rutin (270mg) – although I don’t think anything will stop me looking like a beetroot after I’ve finished a lap of the park!
    Great givaway x

    Love the look of this brand! I was recommended lots of products but the one that jumped out was ‘Acmella’ – perhaps because in my bleary eyed state I originally read it as my daughter’s name!

    The Apigenin looks particularly useful!

    Hi Ruth,

    My recommended product was Arbutin to deal with occasional brown spots and hyperpigmentation.

    Arbutin Pure Active sounds great to get rid of my dark spots caused by sun damage they really show up on my white skin.

    Acmella sounds interesting! I would really love to try etat pur products because I love the concept and the fact that they focus on using “actives” in their products! Plus I can’t get it shipped to where I live…

    I’ve just received the Micellar Cleansing Water and can’t wait to try it :)
    I would love to try Salicylic Acid 300…been looking for something for my acne for awhile and nothing seems to work!!!! :(!
    I’ve also received a sample size of the oil free quenching fluid and I love the scent, it reminds me of jasmine :) Will definitely be ordering more from them

    Mine would be Salicylic Acid as I have suffered from acne for years! Would love to see if this would help!

    Apigenin was in my results and it sounds like something I need right now! Interestingly, it also sounds like a new breed of guinea pig… x

    Express Purifying Mask. I get really dry skin just after washing my face, however which ever foundation I use in the day my skin then goes really oily! But I swear the oil in my face doesn’t go with my skin, it doesn’t moisturise it’s self at all, it’s a bloody nightmare! I am hoping this product will help balance out my skin a bit, love to you and Mr Bear! x

    I’m a student just finished my summer semester exams… Due to my typical last minute approach to exams my skin has gone completely mental due to the stress and lack of sleep… The Salicylic Acid sounds amazing for all these huge red blemishes that have appeared. Love the page Ruth!

    Apigenin [25mg] – this could be the miracle I’ve been hoping for!

  458. May 10, 2012 / 7:07 pm

    Rutin [270 mg]! x

    May 10, 2012 / 10:19 pm

    I was recommended Salicylic Acid 70 pure Active…but would rather try Radiant complexion care as running low on my origins vitazing and would be an interesting comparison! :)- already ordered the Salicylic Acid though…oops! Poor bank balance… x

    I got the ‘Oat’ active. It sounds lovely and soothing for my skin’s current stressed-out state!

    I was recommended the Apigenin [25mg]. Could definitely help with my tired eyes from all the studying and working! :)

    Hey Ruth! I have, I fear, been lured in by the Bioderma connection and indeed the mere mention of a French pharmacy brand (despite being half French and therefore not remotely enchanted by ‘things francais’!)

    The product that stuck in my mind for some probably tedious* reason was the micellar cleansing water.

    *I can’t help it… the notion of a substance that looks, feels and smells exactly like water having magic makeup-annihilating properties is way more exciting and fascinating to me than it should be.

    Good morning, Ruth!
    I cannot wait to try some of the Etat Pur products, think i’ll place an order this weekend,their products are definitely an eye catcher, so a big ‘thank you’ goes out to you, for keeping us updated.
    One of the products that appears on my prescription is the ‘Smoothing eye contour care’,and i would love to give it a try.
    Thank you,

  465. Claudia

    I would like to try salicylic acid 300. Thank you so much Ruth, take care.

  466. May 11, 2012 / 9:35 am

    I would absolutely love Soothing lipid-replenishing care to treat my dry skin.
