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.

Not So Bad
Sampled

I use a variety of blemish control products, all of which seem to dry out my skin. This product did not have a drying effect. Though it does not smell good (what types of these products actually do?), it does seem to be making a difference in the appearance of blemishes on my face.

So so
Sampled

I wanted to like this product but I didn't find it very effective. Redness and size seemed to be about the same before and after use. But it didn't cause dryness or extra irritation which many acne products do.

Feels great on skin! I see a difference too
Sampled

Just from using the sample I see a difference. The acne on my skin has lowered. A little goes a long way. Lastly the serum feels nice on my skin.

Nothing special

It seems like it could work but I would need more time than what the sample provided.

Blemish Serum

I has happy in receiving this product since I do have issues with acne and blemishes. However, because my skin is very acne prone I have not been able to use this product regularly to see if it is effective.

Works great, clears up blemishes
Sampled

I've never used a product like this before, mostly cause I'm afraid of them. But this one works great! I took away the redness and the blemish was gone one to two days faster then it usually would be.

Not bad.
Sampled

I don't have a lot of breakouts, but I like to keep something on hand to spot treat the little things that do happen to pop up. The consistency was a bit more watery than I was expecting at first, so I definitely dispensed way too much. Oops. However, it worked fairly well for me, but was drying (I already have very dry skin) and caused my skin to get flaky where I applied it. I guess that's to be expected with this type of product though?

Not a cure
Sampled

This seems like a decent product and might help with some breakouts you're experiencing from clogged pores from dirt, makeup or other irritants but this is not a cure for your acne. If you have acne, which is a bacterial infection, it's not going to go away without medicine from a dermatologist
