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.

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.

Solid product

I really liked this cream. I began getting some redness do to a pimple and/or breakout type issue and I used this after cleansing at night time. The next two days I saw significant improvement to the red areas.

Literally prevents breakouts before they happen

I do not hate a problem with acne so I don’t always know the best products / I could feel pimples under my skin prior to my period - used this and wala gone.

Love! 100%

I don't have blemishes or pimples, so was skeptical this would do anything ... I do have some sunspots and redness ... and this worked! Plus, it is very moisturizing, which is deceiving. Great for my dry, sensitive skin and décolletage, which has suffered some sun damage. A little goes a lONG way. My sample has lasted an incredibly long time! Will order!

Great product
Sampled

This is a great product, especially for spot treatment. Any blemish or redness is gone overnight. Even just this sample has lasted me quite a while. I will definitely be ordering the full size product.

Liked the sample better
Purchased

I had the sample and I absolutely LOVED it, works miracles on any blemish. So naturally when I ran out I bought the actual product. First off, it is pretty much the same size as the sample, what??? But whatever, it's worth it, because it works! But then it's packaged in a pump (whereas the sample was a squeeze tube). You only need to put a REALLY little bit on, but the pump squirts out WAY too much and I am wasting this expensive product!! Also, when it gets to the bottom in a tube you can squeeze out ever last drop, I feel like I won't get my money's worth in a pump bottle. Not sure why they would change the packaging, I wish I could just buy a ton of samples instead!
