Birchbox Breakdown

In our quest to eradicate zits we’ve tried our fair share of pimple-busting products—with mixed results. This radical serum may very well be The One. The doctor-developed formula penetrates the skin, going straight to the source to eliminate trapped bacteria, dirt, and oil to restore damaged skin. It gets the job done quickly and gently, without irritating or over-drying your skin. The patent-pending YS3 Complex delivers blemish-banishing ingredients, like tea tree oil and salicylic acid, beneath the skin’s surface. Willow bark extract reduces inflammation and redness. Bonus: The serum also tackles surface scars and hyperpigmentation.

How it Works

How to Use

Use twice daily. Wash face and gently pat dry. Carefully dab the serum directly onto spots, pimples, and scars or apply a layer film all over your face to help prevent breakouts. Follow with moisturizer. May be used under or over makeup.

This product is nice.

I used the sample I got in my Birchbox and really did like this product. I already use an acne product from my dermatologist but if I didn't have a prescription I would definitely consider making this part of my daily routine. It left my face feeling good and my acne did clear up a bit, I'd have to use it longer to give a better view of final results.

So far, so great! My best sample yet!
Sampled

I received this in my box at the perfect time-- just when I was looking for this exact type of acne serum. It's a very good-sized and I am still using it routinely every night. I haven't gotten any new breakouts and the area of my face that was having continuous problems has even started to clear up! If I keep having such great results, and no bad reactions, I will absolutely be buying the full-size product as my go-to!

Couldn't tell a difference

I used to Blemish Serum and could not tell a difference in my skin while using. It also kind of made my skin shinier which is not a look I was going for!

I used this serum with my Elemis moisturizer, and after a few hours of wear i scratched my face and it started to peel off. Not loving it.

Effective

This product really does work well on acne but the smell is very strong. The size for being a sample size is actually pretty good and last a long time.

I've never used a spot treatment that has ever worked, but this one shows immediate and fantastic results. My only complaint is that it smells really strong.

Makes my skin very soft and blemishes disappear almost over night! It has a strong smell of tea tree oil, which can be unappealing to most. However, it works wonders so does it really matter how it smells?
