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.

I didn't get this one. It says sports treatment but I think it made it worst.

Strong odor and thin consistency - no thanks
Sampled

This product has a strong lemony odor. The thin watery consistency makes it awkward to dispenze and apply.

tried this out on its own, just to make sure i gave it a fair chance, it dried up my face so bad that it felt like a bad sunburn for 3 days! no amount of oil, lotion, aloe, or face moisturizers would absorb into my skin. it was a wreck and it hurt so bad! my face felt chapped! i pride myself in my skin care and having a great complexion and after the 1st day i was breaking out EVERYWHERE! i wanted to cry I looked so horrible! i never break out on my forehead and little puss looking blisters started popping up all over. im still peeling from this product. I've never had a reaction like this. I threw this away so freakin fast y'all wouldn't believe... it started burning and making my face red within minutes. i even washed it off but it seemed to make it spread over my whole face. i usually don't write reviews but i just wanted to warn anyone that was considering this product.

This serum made my skin break out in pimples really bad. I tried it for a week and it just got worse and worse. I have combination skin and it isn't sensitive at all, but i have been battling acne for all of my life and all this did was cause it to get worse. so for my skin and face i have to say that i will not buy this product.

Don't like the smell
Sampled

I received this in my monthly box and tried it as a spot treatment on a pimple. The smell was just too much for me and it didn't seem to make the pimple disappear any quicker than without treatment.
