Balance Me Congested Skin Serum

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.

It smells!

This smells like old dirty water :-(. I wouldn't use it again.

This literally does nothing to my face. I've used on blemishes and breakout, even tried applying it all over my face, no affect. And it does not have a divine scent...

This was nothing but hype!
Sampled

This was hyped up to be an amazing product that worked great. I've used it for almost 4 weeks & haven't noticed a clearer & brighter complexion. It actually left my skin a bit oily which actually caused me to breakout. By the way, I usually have normal skin to combo skin. This serum also has a strong & unpleasant scent. I personally wouldn't purchase this product bcuz I think it'd be a waste of money.

Made me breakout
Sampled

I received a sample of this in my Birchbox. I rate this product one star because the smell of this product just disgusts me and not only that but it made me breakout instantly a few hours after using this. Liked the texture and consistency but wish it actually worked .

Not for me

This product made my skin break out pretty badly. Seemed to do the opposite of what it was supposed to. I have oily skin but not particularly prone to acne or sensitive to products. I threw it out.
