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.
Awesome product. This has helped me with my few breakouts on my face and back. Very convenient. Love it.5
I have had acne for a larger percentage of my life than I care to share and have tried a large number of products (both over-the-counter and prescription). I currently have two products that I am using that I was prescribed (Tretinoin 0.025% [Retin-A] and Clindamycin 1% [topical antibiotic]) so I was not sure how a mixture of those products would do along with Evologie® Intensive Blemish Serum and Birchbox does not necessarily say.
It was relatively easy to put on and I decided to put on a light film all over my face due to the various areas of acne I had plus hyperpigmentation. I tend to have normal to sensitive skin depending on the product and its ingredients. Given I was also using two different prescribed products (though less of the prescribed) while I tried this product out I only noticed that a mixture of this plus my prescribed products made my skin slightly more dry. It was easily handled with using my prescribed stuff slightly less and more moisturizer.
If anything the product had a slightly "cleaner" smell to it if you place it on the skin under your nose, however my husband and no one else complained of a smell around me and I believe after it dries there is no linger smell. I decided to continue with my prescription cremes over this, one because I had already purchased the prescriptions and two I have good results with them.
I did not have worse acne and still roughly "better" skin while using this product, however, I cannot attribute it to ONLY this as I was also doing a mixture of my prescribed cremes as well. This seems to be a great over-the-counter product and should I decide to switch to over-the-counter only I would definitely put this product as a first on my list as my skin really likes and tolerates Salicylic Acid based products and I liked the sample a lot while I tried it out.
I received this sample at the perfect time! My face had been breaking out so I applied this to my acne, and it definitely helped to fade it!5
This product did nothing for me. I have pretty stubborn acne and it didn't seem to make a difference for me. Maybe it would be better for someone that just has a pimple pop up every once in a while.2
I did not like this at all - I struggle with acne and scarring, so I was excited to try this - but it left big dry patches on my face and was very irritating. Won't be using this again!2
As far as the speed or effectiveness of the product, at this moment I'm unsure since I've only used it once. It does smell wonderful, it went on smooth, and absorbed fast. I have the occasional zit in the winter because of the dry weather. I don't like using acne cream because most of them dry my skin even worse. I'm hoping the first application is an indication that the product is doing the job without destroying my skin. After application, it absorbed quickly and my skin still felt moisturized and it helped the redness of the area.4
I'm not crazy about the smell of this product, and I can't be sure it's clearing my breakouts, but I like the consistency and it's certainly not irritating my skin.4
This is a solid product. It minimized my pores and helped me get over a pimple really quickly!5
This was the perfect week to get this sample, the week I started breaking out. I used it twice a day after washing my face and could tell my blemishes disappeared a lot quicker than normal. Hopefully it remains effective over time, but we'll see! So far, it works great and is thin and light, so it doesn't feel like anything is heavy on your clean skin.5
I tried this product at night and left it on red spots while I slept! When I woke up, the redness was gone. LOVE!4
