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.

Nothing special
Sampled

I have very acne prone skin, so this was a welcome sample. Unfortunately, it didn't stand out as anything too special. I know plenty of people remarked on the smell, but as someone who has used just about every anti-acne product out there, it didn't bother me.

Too runny!
Sampled

I did not like this product. It was extremely runny making it hard to apply and I felt like it wasnt staying on my face.

Not sure
Sampled

Sometimes I try new skincare and I can't tell if it makes any difference unless I use it for a few weeks. I have no idea if this helped my skin, but it definitely didn't hurt it.

Best Ever
Sampled

This serum is amazing. I get painful acne under my skin that lasts for days and never actually turns into a zit. Nothing has ever helped as much as this serum. It takes it away in one night but also helps the pain as soon as I put it on. I'm disappointed in the price considering the size so I won't buy it. I feel like I use it frequently too. But if price isn't an issue for you it's a great product.

Overall, it is an effective product. Careful how much you use though, or you will look and feel like you got a chemical peel done.

Not for me =/
Sampled

I don't think think this is a bad product, but I think my skin really doesn't like salicylic acid. I've tried it so many times, always with painful results. I love the fact that it has tea tree oil as well, which DOES work well for my skin, but because of the salicylic acid I felt like this product did more harm than good for me personally.

Okay product

Not a bad product but I am the type of person who uses all of the same skin brand products and I don't mix and match. May be better for someone else.

Always good to have on hand!
Sampled

I have used products from this company before and been pleased with the results. Although my skin has been "fairly" well behaved (at least in regards to pimples), they do still pop up and when they do, having a product such as this on hand is ideal

smells great, not strong enough for me
Sampled

I love the way this product smells, I love tea tree oil. I typically use straight tea tree oil when I have a red pimple. I need benzol peroxide or prescription strength meds when I have a break out though.
