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
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."

Great product, terrible pump

Written by Paraskevi Nicolaou on 24th May 2021

Really great product and have noticed a difference with my pores/blackheads on my nose, within a couple of weeks. However, the pump on the bottle is not easy to use, it often doesn't pop back to the natural position and sometimes the liquid squirts out the side (which is a waste). 5 stars for the product, the bottle and pump let it down.

great product but awkward design

Written by Danielle Leighton on 16th May 2021

i agree that the pump is awkward. it won’t pop backup on its own like the cleanser once depressed. i thought mine was defective so used an empty cleaner pump and same results. i like the product though.

Incredible stuff!

Written by Sara on 14th May 2021

I bought the trial/travel size of this and was so impressed with how it improved my t-zone I immediately ordered the full size. It has improved the pore size on my nose and I have noticed far less black heads. Yet it’s so gentle and doesn’t irritate. It also calms redness. It really is amazing stuff. Another winner from Balance Me.

Best product ever. My skin feels amazing. I suffer blocked pores nothing worked to get rid of my black heads real stubborn ones. Since using this they are going. Skin feels so clean. Can not recommend enough. Will be buying more products

BHA concentrate

Written by Linda on 13th Apr 2021

Originally received a sample size of this product and within a week I noticed the difference. Smells divine and leaves skin feeling refreshed. I use it twice daily. I am most impressed at how it's reduced the appearance of the pigmentation spots on my face. I have used many other products to try and fade these areas and this has got to be the best yet. Ordered a full size bottle which will last me ages as a little goes a long way.

Great improvement in spot prone skin

Written by Dominika on 11th Apr 2021

Brilliant product! It took me a little while to notice the results but after a few weeks of using my skin became dramatically clearer. It's great at reducing pores and blackheads, I definitely noticed I get much fewer breakouts and cystic spots which used to plague my chin and jaw area. I use it once a day in the morning, it glides on really nicely and smells lovely. Great product and wouldn't be without it now!

Great product

Written by Sarah on 9th Apr 2021

I first encountered this as a freebie when I got my last order of Balance Me products but when it ran out I knew that I had to get some more! It makes my skin look a lot smoother and brighter and I think it is also helping to calm my hormonal acne too!


Written by Jennifer Kelly on 8th Apr 2021

I’m a nurse and recently I’ve had horrible skin with excess spots and blackhead from wearing the PPE and nothing has helped! This has been a god send! Honestly noticed a difference within a week! For the first time in a year I can do a shift at work and not get multiple spots and blackheads. I use it once a day and my skin feels so smooth (people keep asking me if I’ve had a facial)


Written by Tammy Bailey on 6th Apr 2021

Feels nice, smells nice, but no noticeable change in my skin. In addition, the packaging is AWFUL. The press pump at the top has to be manually lifted up with my nails after each press. It would be so much easier to get the product out with a different pump design. I’ll use it up but I’m unlikely to buy again as for the price I would’ve expected better.

Another Amazing Skincare Product

Written by Cerian Devroe on 4th Apr 2021

I’ve been using this product for 2 weeks and absolutely love it! I have combination skin but ultimately immensely oily at the end of the day. In just two weeks I notice more even, tighter smoother skin that is brighter. I’ve used a few balance me products and combined they’re unstoppable in making me look younger, more refreshed and feeling good about my skin again.
