I just wanted to send your company a thank you.  A friend recommended your Protective Day Cream and Super Wrinkle Cream when I was complaining one day about the state of my 51-year-old dehydrated face.  She had recently started using both products and was very pleased with their performance.  Despite spending a fortune over the years I have had great difficulty in finding products that my sensitive skin will tolerate, and which will provide enough moisture without congesting my skin and making it feel oily.  I started using these two John Plunkett products about eight weeks ago, and have been very happy with the improvement in my skin’s condition. The dehydration is much better, my skin feels smooth, and I don’t have to use a separate sunscreen. I will certainly be purchasing these products again, and will look at other products in your skincare range.  It’s great to be able to purchase Australian made products at a reasonable price.

Thanks people at Plunkett pharmaceuticals! I’ve been using your anti ageing range for years and it’s still the best around. I’ve recommended it to all my friends and they’re all happy too! Just goes to show you don’t need a fancy schmanzy expensive French product to do the job! Keep up the good work!

Protective Day Moisturiser

I use this product as my daily moisturiser and its great. Its light, non greasy and best of all has a SPF which is a feature I specifically look for in a day time moisturiser. Its also reasonably priced. An all round great product that leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft.

Dear lovely Plunkett Corporation,

I have been using the three essential products for a mature skin to help in facial aging.  I do not want to look young again, but I do want to look like a healthily youthful aging senior who cannot be bothered with all this nonsense of going under the knife, and ending up with taut expressionless skin that in time will need more and more procedures.  Thank goodness I have always looked after my skin and have pretty great genes, and at 63 feel that less is more. 

The John Plunkett range had never appealed because of the plain senior citizen look of the packaging.  How wrong I was," never judge a book by its' cover" never rang more true. 

A few weeks ago, the consultant at my pharmacy pointed out the product line and talked me into trying the range.  My Lord! My skin is simply glowing with good health and I cannot talk too highly of it. Highly expensive ranges have been tried in the past, and I thought they did a great job. The Plunkett range, in a relatively short period of time has done a fantastic job. What a lot of money had been spent by me and others over the long years, when a very good range had always been available at an affordable price.

You will become my new best friends, and I shall become yours by telling my other friends how good and clever you are, and that I have not been to a plastic surgeon at all (which is what some have suggested).

Thank you for all the effort you have all put into your skincare to make me look and feel rich and famous. This will be what I'll say in future. If you want to look great, rich and famous, head straight to the Plunkett shelf, and start young so you'll never grow old disgracefully. Once more, many, many thanks from a grateful customer, and thanks for the pretty packaging that first prompted the purchase.

John Plunkett Essentials

I am 50 years old, last Christmas I purchased a gift pack of John Plunkett with Super Wrinkle Cream, protective Day Moisturiser and Refirming Eye Cream. I really feel these are good products and it’s hard to find one that works, but I am amazed. After 1 week of these 3 products I noticed a visible difference.

I would like to say how much I like your products in the Classic skincare range (now named Essentials). I have followed the two-step process and I’m onto my second treatment phase. I am 45 years old and have had many people commenting on how great my skin is since using your products.

  • W. Hanmer (Mt. Martha VIC)

Finally someone who can combine price and quality into the one item. I used to buy other products, but never again. One month of both the daytime and nighttime creams, and the difference has to be seen to be believed. My skin and I thank you."

  • JS Mt Morgan QLD

Just a short note to say I find your John Plunkett Skin Care range absolutely wonderful. Having used the Protective Day Cream, it makes my skin feel and look younger, almost instantly."

  • KJ NT

I usually have four of your Protective Day Creams going at once; one in the handbag, one in the bathroom, one in the sports bag and the other in the bedroom - I can't be too far away from a product as good as this, because, quiet honestly, it's the best face cream that I have ever used. Sincere Thanks."
