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.

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.

It’s amazing
Sampled

When I saw that this was a choice for my box customization I was thrilled! I’ve gotten it before and loved it. It will zap any and all blemishes you may have. Goes on smoothly, feels light, and absorbs instantly. It’s one of my favorite Birchbox products after 3 years.

Very pleasant, clean feeling
Sampled

I have been a Birchbox subscriber for about six months. I’m 53 years old with fair, highly sensitive and reactive combination (oily/dry) skin. I’ve always struggled to find a balance between moisturizing and calming my skin but keeping my t-zone especially my nose from breaking out and trying to reduce large pores. With this BalanceMe product, I think I’ve found it. I apply this on my nose and chin and I apply a calming moisturizer with vitamin e and c on my cheeks, forehead and neck. I’ve been doing this for two weeks and my skin feels great. This serum is very thin so you have to be careful not to take too much and waste it. But I love the texture, it absorbs right away, feels very fresh, and I adore the scent. I think I have had fewer blackheads and my nose looks tighter. I would recommend this for anyone with combination skin and a problem nose area.
