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.

Cystic acne

I have cystic acne that nothing helps. I got this as a sample in the monthly box. I am amazed. I put this (and a bandaid) on the spot overnight and it is significantly smaller in the morning. It’s a great product for those deep pimples. Highly recommend!

Absolutely amazing
SampledPurchased

Love this serum! It’s absolutely amazing. Had sample and traveled with it. Feel in love and refuse to go without. It has helped prevent me from breaking out and minimizing blackheads. While also not causing my skin to get too dry or flakey.

Infinite stars!!!

I refuse to believe this isnt magic in a bottle! I absolutely LOVE this and will use only this product as my spot treatment. I recently got a couple big, red pimples around my face that looked very unflattering. It's only been about a week since I started using this, and those pimples are all reduced to tiny little dots and are more or less gone!

So far so good!!!
SampledPurchased

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

My favorite product
Sampled

I don’t get breakout very often, but when I do this serum is amazing. It is gentle, doesn’t leave my skin flaky or dry and clears up my breakout. But what I use it for mostly is general inflammation and redness. It calms my skin down and leaves it feeling good

Clear skin

I just started to use when I noticed a couple breakouts. The congested skin serum actually seemed to help. It was pretty quick on relieving without drying out my skin.

Can't recommend enough

This stuff clears up acne and reduces most of the redness quickly. Best of all it dosen't dry out my skin. If you have problems with acne you should give this a try.

I like it.
Sampled

I’m still using this sample a month later since I’ve been using it for spot treatment and I don’t break out very often. I like the smell and tingly feeling! And it feels very natural and absorbs quickly. I’m not sure how strong it is, but so far I’m impressed.
