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.
This was my first Birchbox and I'm a little confused that two of the samples I received looked different as in size or packaging from those listed here. But I had recently decided to do a system cleanse which sometimes leads to breakouts and I'm 45 so the inevitable chin acne from hormones. This product seems to shorten the life cycle of the zit. I can smell the tea tree oil in it which I never cared for but do have straight tea tree oil we use for a number of reasons. But this was not as harsh as using tea tree oil directly on the blemish. It felt a little sticky to the touch after application.5
This product had a nice scent. The sample size was huge and will last me a while. I did think the consistency was a bit runny. Overall a good product.4
Love tea tree oil anti-acne products. Not sure if this one works all that well though.4
I usually am really skeptical of anti-acne treatments as they don't tend to work very well or at all. I was pleasantly surprised that this actually worked better than I thought possible. I applied some on a small blemish on my nose that was on it's way to becoming a full blown pimple. I left it overnight and in the morning it had reduced significantly and the redness had gone away. After one more application it was pretty much gone.4
This product smells divine if you're fond of tea tree oil - which is great for certain kinds of blemishes. I haven't been using this long enough to see an effect, but it goes on smoothly and dries to a matte finish and is just generally refreshing to use.5
This product has done an amazing job keeping my acne at bay during my time of the month. I don't love the chemical smell it has, and I don't love the way my skin feels to the touch immediately after applying, but it has worked wonders. I get breakouts every month the week before my "girl time," and using this product throughout June kept any breakouts from occurring at all. I'm actually amazed. I'm definitely buying this one.5
It seemed to help with a large blemish I had (although I was using other things too so I can't say for certain), but I feel like the active ingredients in this are the same as other products that you can buy at the drugstore for a lot less money.4
I don't really have breakouts much at my age, but the few times I tried this I liked it. I share this with my son, and he really said it worked well.5
This blemish serum really works! I actually noticed a difference with it! I will highly recommend!5
This product just irritated my skin. I used it once and it made my skin extremely red.1
