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.

So far so good!!!

Had this lying around for months and hadn’t used it, I have a hard time trying new things when it comes to skincare, but for some reason I’ve been breaking out a lot and thought I’d try it since nothing I normally use was doing the trick.

Bottle says it reduces inflammation and congestion without drying out skin. WOW after two days my skin is almost clear from anything new and the blemishes I had are flat and almost not red/colored anymore. Again it’s been like three days so I’m hesitant but so far it’s Amazing

A serum that really works
Sampled

I am often doubtful of the efficacy of serums. This one is the exception! I put mine in the fridge and incorporated it into my daily routine and can feel the day to day improvement.

This stuff works!

I have periodic breakouts on my butt that are stubborn and will not budge with anything I've tried in the past. I tried this and it cleared up in a day!

Works

This seems to be fairly well textured, and a little goes a long way. It isn’t fast acting, but it’s not as drying to the skin as others I’ve used, so it is more comfortable long term.

I absolutely LOVE this product!! I don't break a lot but when I do, I use this product and the results are nearly immediate. I've never had a breakout clear up so fast!

Works great!

I always used another spot treatment and it took 1-2 full weeks to get rid of a big pimple. Tried this serum and gone within a couple days to 1 week, max. Use this regularly and will be buying more.

Amazing blemish repair!
SampledPurchased

I don’t have horrible acne, so I don’t use this in my daily skincare routine. However this stuff is amazing when you have an unexpected blemish- it’s a great on the spot treatment! It helps reduce size & redness within 12-24 hours. It’s non-greasy & doesn’t dry out skin like many other “on the spot” treatments.

I use it when I get a little blemish and it doesn’t dry you out but does reduce the blemish. It’s very gentle. I used it on my son too (almost 13 years old) as he had a tiny little pimple above his lip and it was gone the next day. (I do mean tiny though). In any case it worked, plus it doesn’t smell terrible or make you wonder if you should actually be putting it anywhere near your face as some of the old fashioned products used to.

In loveeeee with this!! Already bought a full size for home & purse. I use it as a serum sometimes (on stressful days, after washing my face at night) & as a spot treatment at first sign of a pimple. I have combination skin & this doesn’t change my skin or dry it out. Love it!

This was a decent product. Don’t have very sensitive skin so it was fine, liked the smell.
