More information

Our Salicylic Acid-rich Concentrate is a fast-action, fast-absorbing leave-on chemical exfoliation to gently remove dead skin cells, fight blackheads, reduce blemishes, target enlarged pores, and improve hydration to reveal a softer, more youthful-looking and brighter skin, without causing redness or inflammation.

Our BHA rich formulation works on the upper layers of the skin, encouraging dead skin cells to shed to reveal the healthier and more radiant layers underneath. Our calming and anti-inflammatory blend of bio-active ingredients complement the acids to smooth and hydrate the skin.


Brightens, hydrates, targets blackheads, spots and blemishes, reduces enlarged pores and inflammation, smooths skin without causing irritation


For all skin types and life stages, particularly suited to dull and blemish-prone.

Apply several pumps to a beauty pad to a clean skin, gently wipe over a dry face, avoiding the delicate eye area. No rinsing required. Allow it to dry before applying your next step in your routine.

Use AM and PM.

Use within 6 months once opened.

Willow Bark
Contains salicylic acid, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant used in many acne treatments because of its ability to help skin shed dead cells and clear pores.

Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica)
A medicinal plant known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Beautifully green and rich in chlorophyll, it will enhance the look and feel of the skin by making it stronger and more supple.

Hyaluronic Acid
A key component within our skin. It can be likened to ‘a tall glass of water for the face’ as this super hydrator is best known for its unique ability to hold up to a thousand times its weight in water, making it the ultimate complexion champion being responsible for hydration, smoothness, suppleness and glow.

Although a stimulant, it has soothing and antioxidant properties so helps protect skin exposed to UV light. It can penetrate the skin and has a constricting effect, which helps to calm skin prone to redness and sensitivity. 

A plant derived exceptional moisturiser, it acts as a barrier to keep moisture locked in so skin is soft, supple and plump for longer. This natural antioxidant emollient works well for all skin types, especially mature and is non-comedogenic and may help regulate excess oil production in acne-prone skin.

Balance Me skincare routine, Step 2: Exfoliate


"Such a great product to add to your Balance Me cleansing routine. Previously, I used gritty exfoliating creams, thinking I was giving my face a deep clean! Then I discovered this amazingly gentle, yet super effective exfoliator which I use several times a week. My skin is glowing and so soft. I rave about it to all my friends and even got my partner to start using it - and now he is hooked too."

I HAD to buy this and try other products after receiving it in a beauty box subscription.. it’s absolutely fabulous! I have large pores and blackheads, after using this my skin feels and looks so refreshed, you can literally feel it tighten (in a good way) your skin, a little goes a long way!

I didn't believe a liquid could produce the same results as a gritty exfoliator but this product has great results. I also love the dispenser, so easy to use. I suffer from very dry skin on my forehead and this makes such a difference.

Love this!

I got a sample of this in my Birchbox and loved it! I hadn't been using an astringent in years, and this is so much better. than anything I've used over the years. I swear my pores are getting smaller. Crazy on this old skin! I'm in my late 50's and this seems to be making my skin look a wee bit younger! And I got the C-serum because a friend with amazing skin said she swears by her serums. I don't know what she uses, but I love balance me's C serum - OMG!

Amazing Product

What a wonderful way to exfoliate..No mess and grit free. Makes my skin feel great and look much clearer. I'm in my 50s and suffer from hormonal breakouts which are so annoying. This has helped so.much. Love it .

LOVE this product

I’ve been using this product for some time now and I LOVE it. My skin is clear and looks amazing.

Hero product

Written by Suzanne F on 7th Feb 2022

As an adult that has suffered with painful hormonal spots this product has been a game changer. It has helped cleared the scarring and heavily reduced the number of spots I get. Wouldn’t be with it it. Amazingly non drying and used once a day keeps my skin looking it’s best.

I am so loving this product. I too received a sample size in a beauty subscription. I suffer from hormonal acne, although its largely under control, when I started to use this product I was experiencing a break out and it helped soothe and calm my skin down. A little does go a long way and I’m so impressed with the little bottle of magic, I purchased a full size bottle. It smells really good and makes my skin feel great. I’ve really noticed an improvement. My pores have improved, I rarely experience breakouts and I think overall, my skin definitely looks healthier and brighter. I’ve started to try some other Balance Me products, I am unsure as to what products can be put over the top, would welcome more guidance. Can the vitamin C serum be used in conjunction with this product? Anyone thinking about trying this product, I would definitely recommend!!

Love this product

Written by Kristen on 1st Feb 2022

I got a sample of this product in my Birchbox a while back and I was blown away at how much it helped clear my skin and started to even out the texture. It is SO gentle, as well. The little sample lasted me ages because you only need a bit, so buying the full size (even though it's not a super cheap product) was a no brainer.

Great Product

I'm only buying products that work and this is one I'm going to continue to buy. This product really makes my skin look good.

Literally the best skincare product I have ever used! I never leave reviews for products however I just needed to for this. I have struggled with acne, blackheads and large pores all my adult life, however in less than 1 month my skin has totally cleared up! I am now breakout free and feeling great. I can’t wait to try more of your products!
