Even the most diligent daily skin routine can’t thwart all blemishes. Fortunately, this lightweight daily serum (which doubles as a spot-treatment!) has us covered in a skirmish with a wayward pimple—or a prolonged battle against stubborn trouble areas. With a divine scent and smooth application, this calming serum refines pores and balances skin without drying, and is free of parabens or sulfates. Blemishes, we’ll beat you yet.

After using for a few days I have noticed improvement in problem areas and it doesn't dry out my face which is a plus for me. Great product!

Great for stubborn blemishes
Sampled

This serum was really great for my stubborn blemishes. It smells great like lemongrass (which is my favorite part) and feels like it's working. I would definite buy this for my skin type.

OBSESSED
SampledPurchased

I never leave reviews, but I feel that this product is worth it! I got a sample of it about a year ago and it was great for spot-treating pimples. I never bought the full size product until COVID because my pimple breakouts were never that bad and I didn’t want to spend the money. I am a pharmacist and work full-time in the critical care unit so masks are obviously a must in that place. After about 2 weeks of mask-wearing, I developed full-blown acne on my chin line and my neck as well as a little behind my ears. I have been using this product every morning and evening for about 3 months now, pretty much all over my face and neck. My acne is GONE and hasn’t come back. I will forever stan this product. Also a little bit goes a LONG way, so I haven’t had to buy a second bottle yet. I’m obsessed!

Smells great and felt refreshing

This item is definitely being added to my regular routine. Loved the fresh smell and seems to soothe my irritated skin - summer heat is not my friend

Blemish cream

I am a consistent blemish cream user at night so I was excited for the product. I used it for about a week and did not notice a significant difference. It does smell good though.

Wonderful for sensitive skin prone to breakouts!
Sampled

I have combination skin, so I face breakout issues frequently, but also suffer from super sensitive skin that dries out with most cleansers that would help get rid of my acne. I've even had the skin of my face peel off so bad to the point I had to use chapstick on my whole face! This product most definitely did not do that. It got rid of blemishes within 2 days and did so in such a way that my skin felt refreshed, not dry at all, and smelling great. The essential oils in the product have a stress relieving factor similar to the smell of Noxema, which my mom and grandmother always used while growing up. Truly love this serum and can't wait to get a full size!

Best Product for Blemishes
SampledPurchased

I don’t know what it is about this product - the ingredients are simple and pure - but it is awesome about clearing and preventing blemishes. I’m 50 and still get them on my jawline and chin and this has kept them under control, even with having to wear a mask nearly everywhere. I won’t be without it.

LOVE this stuff

Received as a sample and just rediscovered it bc...mascne. This stuff cleared by little imperfections up in a day or two. And now i am just realizing that it is a CLEAN product, too. Really, really stoke on this. Smells wonderful. Is lightweight. Will now be buying a new bottle.
