Don’t need the whole kit? Banish pimples and dark spots with Evologie’s Intensive Blemish Serum.

Birchbox Breakdown

There’s no shortage of acne-specific skincare products, but our latest obsession is this blemish-busting kit by Evologie. Ideal for anyone who’s currently battling a breakout, it comes free of drying irritants and benzoyl peroxide. Each set contains a full-size gentle cleanser; a full-size spot treatment; and a trial-size cream that moisturizes without causing breakouts.

How it Works

This kit is designed to help you get existing breakouts under control—and ensure they don’t come back. In addition to nixing dirt, oil, and bacteria, the Stay Clear Cleanser uses the antioxidant lycopene to neutralize damaging free radicals. The doctor-developed Intensive Blemish Serum penetrates the skin, going straight to the source to eliminate trapped bacteria, dirt, and oil, and also tackling surface scars and hyperpigmentation. Finally, Evologie’s Stay Clear Cream replenishes skin and provides weightless hydration—without causing future blemishes. The key ingredient in each of these acne-fighters is Evologie’s patent-pending YS3 COMPLEX™, which seals in moisture and banishes blemishes. 

How to Use

Start with the cleanser, massaging a dime-sized dollop into a gentle lather. Pat skin dry, then spot-treat emerging and existing blemishes with the serum. Follow with the lightweight and hydrating cream. Repeat twice a day.

It keeps my skin clear
Purchased

I received the samples in my box and when used together I couldn't believe the results. I have combination skin that breaks out easily and I was very pleased with how quickly these products worked to clear up problem areas!

Magic potion for your face
Purchased

I have hormonal acne which comes in goes in waves of perfect skin to teenage breakouts. The cleanser is absolute amazing. It makes my skin feel soft and supple and works fast! Even if I don't use the serum or the cream the cleanser will knock out a breakout for me. Not only that but after using the cleanser for about 4 day I could start seeing a reduction in hyper-pigmentation. The serum is great too but I can't put a makeup primer on top of it without the product peeling so I generally will only use this at night. As for the lotion... I wasn't overwhelming impressed and didn't replace it when I ran out. I felt like it made my skin feel a little tight but everyone's skin is different so give it a go.

Take home message: the cleanser rocks- buy it immediately.

Disappointed.

I purchased this kit after having sampled the moisturizer a several months ago. I really liked how light the moisturizer was and how quickly it sank into my skin. However...

It was cold when I received the kit, and my skin was parched. The moisturizer just didn't provide enough moisture for the cold weather. Maybe once the weather warms up again.

The serum... I read review after review claiming it was some miracle product that got rid of a spot overnight or after a couple nights. No. No, it doesn't. The product also claims to prevent breakouts. Nope. It doesn't. It's also did not play nice with my other products like my daytime moisturizer, sunscreen, bb cream... It balled up and came right off. I did find that it works with Cerave in the tub, so I use it at night. My face started getting really tender though, and I realized it was because the product gets gritty after I let it dry and then apply my moisturizer. Ouch. I also did not see an improvement in my hyperpigmentation, nor did I see it preventing hyperpigmentation.

The cleanser was fine though. I did actually like the cleanser. But not enough for the price. I was very disappointed..

Refreshing

This product leaves my skin clean and clear. It took a few weeks to notice complete results but my skin has been blemish free for the most part since I started using the products.

Drying
Purchased

The kit is very drying to my sensitive skin, and after 2 weeks of using the products I am still having breakouts.

Intense
Purchased

I got my products last week and have only used it one day because it irritated my face so much--had a burning sensation as soon as I used the serum and made my face sensitive and red. The moisturizer just balled up on my face and couldn't put makeup on over it. Would not recommend, especially because I've used many strongerprescription face ointments and haven't had my skin react this way.

Great!
Purchased

Love this skincare system. The serum helps wonderfully with any breakouts. I use it before moisturizer on my whole face, and it doesn't make my foundation or BB cream feel strange at all. I just make sure it is fully absorbed before I start my makeup routine. I use this system twice a day and it definitely has improved my skin! I would definitely recommend if someone is looking for something that feels gentle but is effective.

Stay Clear CLEANSER
Purchased

I just love this cleanser. When I wash my face, it always feels really clean afterwards, but it's gentle and does not dry my skin. Just perfect! I also LOVE that Evologie does not do any animal testing with any of their products. That's good for all of us!

Love this

I specifically love the spot treatment! It is so lightweight compared to most spot treatments that are thick creams. I am excited to try the cleanser now after going through many different brands.
