Evologie

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

How to Use

Use twice daily. Wash face and gently pat dry. Carefully dab the serum directly onto spots, pimples, and scars or apply a layer film all over your face to help prevent breakouts. Follow with moisturizer. May be used under or over makeup.

Best blemish serum EVER!
Sampled

I have used many anti-acne serums over the years for my very acne-prone skin. I've even used the ones that stain the life out of clothing and pillow cases. This serum is light and incredibly effective! After using it a few times, I've noticed that my acne is less irritated and my blemishes are smaller. I am stunned at how well this works. It also has a pleasant tea tree oil smell to it. I will definitely buy this product!

Continued treatment

This product has a funky smell so just know you are warned. The constancy is very liquid and I felt the application process was messy. Getting the product out of the sample size was challenging to not waste when it spilled over the cap. As far as effectiveness the product showed some improvement to my skin quality but I would need to use longer than two weeks to see the improvement I would expect for the price

I found that this product was very effective in clearing my acne. It did smell like beets, though....

Not what I expected
Sampled

I tried this for about a week, and I actually ended up getting a spot rather than getting rid of my scars.. So I'm not to impressed with this product maybe it's just defective on me because other people seem to love it

Pretty Good

I loved the tingle the serum gave me. This works well after day 2, not quite an immediate fix.

Effective acne treatment!

Didn't over dry my skin and speeded up the healing of some blemishes I already had when it got here :)

its strong

and efficient. The smell of tea tree oil is the most prominent smell but with a little dot applied to the treated area, it works wonders without over drying my skin. If i apply too much, my skin starts to hate me for that but i like the product

Acne be gone!

This is a great little sample. When I recived this product I thought how "intense" could it be. Well I was wrong to question it. Dries them suckers up within 8 hours.

It smells really bad. Don't know if it was a bad batch, but I couldn't keep it on my face.
