Suki

Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve changed a lot since high school (thank goodness)—and in our new, grown-up life, breakouts are as unwelcome as our junior year prom date. So now that we’re older and wiser, we keep our skin clear and blemish-free with this purifying acne serum. The sophisticated serum not only reduces redness and heals blemishes, but also clears pores and busts oily build-up to prevent acne from forming in the first place.

How to Use

After toning, lightly apply a few drops of this serum to face and décolleté.

high-potency (aqua, organic rosa centifolia) rose concentrate™, alcohol denat (sugar cane extracted with lavender oil) with lavandula, pyrus malus (apple) fruit enzymes extract, phospholipids (liposomal delivery system), salix alba (TLC salicylic acid™ from white willow), vigna aconitifolia (TLC retinol vitamin A™ from moth bean) seed extract, blemish busting complex™ (echinacea purpurea (echinacea) flower extract, hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal) root extract,) olea europaea (olive) fruit oil food grade xanthan gum, maltodextrin, 100% pure (fragrance) essential oils, linalool*, limonene*. * components of 100% pure steam-distilled essential oils

Literally the best thing I've bought from birchbox
Purchased

Every positive review about this product is on the money. I used to break out daily and between using this, and Baxter of California's clay mask I've had virtually no complexion issues.

Fantastic find.
Purchased

After moving from a desert climate to a humid area I developed adult acne. I tried everything to combat it but found that nothing worked without being very harsh. Using this serum and the toner together has significantly helped not only my acne but my skin tone within a few days. I have not had dry or flakey skin as I did with other products, this is very mild.

Holy Grail Acne Product!
Purchased

I have tried everything on the market to keep my skin clear... it has been a 15 year long battle. So I was curious to try this Suki product after receiving the Suki exfoliator in my box. It worked and FAST! After 24 hours the serum had visibly shrinked my cystic pimple and improved the tone of my skin. I love how it feels, too: it's not dry or harsh on my sensitive face. This was an incredible find, and worth every penny!

Buying for Second Time
Purchased

Skin crisis intervention, indeed - I have been using the Obagi NuDerm System since developing adult acne 5 years ago, but still suffered from deep cystic acne in the lower portion of my chin, and laugh line area of my face. I bought this product 3 months ago, combined with Retin-A and a Clay-Mask product (for men) my skin is FINALLY break out free. No more weeping cysts & cycles of break-out/healing.. I am now reordering it.

As for the men's clay mask product I read that cystic acne in adult women c/be caused by hormone fluctuations particularly in progesterone & testosterone later in life. No clue if that is true, but it definitely worked.

So very disappointed
Purchased

This had so many great reviews that I finally bit the bullet and bought it. It is VERY expensive for something that really only lasted about a month. And it did not work even a little bit. I can't believe how much this costs.

Really Works
Purchased

I'm a product junkie and rarely purchase a product more than once. This has been purchased 3 times. It really seems to help my adult hormonal acne. I'm not completely breakout free, especially during my period, but it does seem to calm the breakouts. My only complaint is that it feels like I run out so quickly!

Over-40 acne prone
Purchased

This product is fantastic, goes on smooth and absorbs instantly. I use it morning and night, followed by the balancing oil. My skin is smooth and glowing in the morning when I get up, but it has not prevented breakouts completely. I agree with others that it goes fast; even though one drop is plenty to cover the face if your skin is still damp from toner, it goes much faster than the balancing oil (I am about 1/2 way through 2 weeks in). I would give 5 stars if it lasted longer for the price.

NOT The Holy Grail :(
Purchased

It seemed to work really well at first, but instead of improving from there, I've had some major breakouts. I don't think that the suki serum actually caused the breakouts, but it didn't clear them up either. I had to do a regimen of masks and soaks. The real Holy Grail would have made me immune to acne breakouts in the first place.

Still my HOLY GRAIL!
Purchased

Suki is one of my favorite skin care brands (albeit a spa skincare brand!). This is my second bottle of this serum and I use it twice a day...once in the morning and in the evening. I don't think its meant to be used that way, but it makes my skin feels amazing, keeps acne at bay and gives me a great matte look for my oily skin! It really has helped lessen my breakouts. I use it in combo with Sunday Riley and it has hands down improved my skin by leaps and bounds. Definitely recommend this product for anyone that struggles with acne prone (and aging) skin. It's spendy, but it's well worth the price!
