In our quest to eradicate zits we’ve tried our fair share of pimple-busting products—with mixed results. This radical serum may very well be The One. The doctor-developed formula penetrates the skin, going straight to the source to eliminate trapped bacteria, dirt, and oil to restore damaged skin. It gets the job done quickly and gently, without irritating or over-drying your skin. The patent-pending YS3 Complex delivers blemish-banishing ingredients, like tea tree oil and salicylic acid, beneath the skin’s surface. Willow bark extract reduces inflammation and redness. Bonus: The serum also tackles surface scars and hyperpigmentation.
Only used a few times, but seems to work fine. Don't love the smell, but it's not overwhelming so it doesn't really bother me. Feels light on my skin.5
I have not had any crazy breakouts to give this a whirl. Have just done some spot treatment. Would like to see how it does longer term.4
Although this product is super effective I just won't spend the money on it! I actually get a few pimples here and there and have used this and it makes them come to a head quick and then they go away! Super effective!!5
Good and effective acne problems are hard to come by, and this one is a dud. Eucalyptus and/or tea tree oil are actually quite irritating for most skin types and this product carries a heavy fragrance of tea tree oil, it seems. I tried it several days in a row and it honestly made all my blemishes worse and more inflamed. Also, neither the packaging nor the Birchbox card had a list of ingredients so it's difficult to trust a skin care product when it has a strong fragrance and no listed ingredients,1
I definitely see an improvement in my skin. It seems brighter and more even toned. I didn't really see a big difference with blemish control though. It reduced redness and sensitivity in the bigger blemishes which was great, but it never really got rid of any of them.3
I thought this protect was supposed to dry up a pimple so it would go away faster but instead it causes a fresh white head each morning. It is effective at bringing up gunk but not at healing faster.3
I received this just in time when I was breaking out and this really helped them go away in just a few days.4
I have extremely dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin. The simpler the ingredients in the product/makeup I am using, the better. This serum works wonders for my skin, while also not drying it out or making it break out. The smell is a bit too strong for my liking, but it is still a fresh, minty smell. I spread this all over my face in the morning and at night during a moderate breakout, and my skin completely cleared up two nights after using it. My skin also stayed clear since I've been using it and a little goes a long way with this stuff. I'm planning on buying it after my sample's used up!5
I was really excited to try a new spot treatment since I've been using the same one for years. This may be an effective product, but I couldn't get past the awful texture that attracted lint from my pillow case. It's also got a strong herbal scent which I usually don't mind, but it was a bit overbearing with this one. Thumbs down :/2
I received the Intensive Blemish Serum in my June Birchbox. This is indeed an intense serum ideal for fighting breakouts. Can be worn under makeup during the day to combat breakouts. It is also ideal for nightly use. It goes on clear and does not leave the face feeling cakey. Apply only to the affected areas for best results5
