Great for helping blemished skin

Written by Carrie on 1st Mar 2022

I love this product, I get a few spots but they're always quite big however since using this they clear up much quicker...

Miracle in a bottle

Written by Louise on 31st Dec 2021

I have suffered with acne since I was 11 years old and I’m now 38. I have tried all the lotions and potions I can get from the doctors and all the spot treatments you can buy in the shops. This is by far the best I have ever used. It’s gentle on the skin but tough on the spot. It reduces redness and doesn’t cause my skin around the spot to become red and inflamed and it does not cause dryness. I have also noticed that once the spot has been treated it doesn’t leave a mark like the other treatments in the past have and it also reduces the pain this book causes. I really do recommend this treatment for anyone who suffers from acne at any age. A little of this spot treatment goes a long way. I have also paid this with the pre and probiotic radiance cream and face wash.

It works

Post menopausal spots around the chin area. Helps maintain my skin and clears congestion. Highly recommend.

Saved my teenage son’s skin!

Written by Naomi on 13th Jul 2021

This product is amazing for teenage spot prone skin. My son uses this every day and almost all his skin is clear of spots and reduces breakouts. It’s an essential.

Absolutely amazing

Written by Claire on 11th May 2021

I’ve been struggling with my skin since coming off the hormonal pill last year and have been prone to painful breakouts, oily skin, blocked pores and just generally red, angry skin. After using this serum for only a few days, my skin improved so much. Redness is reduced, breakouts are minimal and totally manageable now and my skin is all round so much happier - I even have a bit of a glow back! It also smells so amazing and is worth trying just for that alone! I would highly recommend this serum to anyone struggling with spot prone skin.

Definitely worth it!It feels like a thin moisturiser so you can wear it on a bare face and feel like you have nothing on or even under makeup. It calms all my breakouts and soothes the redness of my skin. I wear it everyday and night and I haven’t used a product I could rely on as much as this, having struggled with my skin for way too long! It’s the product that introduced me to Balance Me and I’m so glad it did!

Amazing serum

Written by Sara on 15th Apr 2021

I left a review when I first started using this product in the trial size. I’ve been using this serum for a couple of years now and just wouldn’t be without it. I only use it on my nose, but it has reduced my pores, seems to prevent spots, blackheads and clogged pores, calms any redness but has the added benefit of not drying out the skin. It smells lovely and a small amount goes a really long way. It’s been essential this past year in preventing maskne!

This stuff is a miracle. I had really messed up my skin using prescription retinol and glycolic acid. As a result I had a terrible bout of fungal acne on my neck. For six weeks I tried everything and no improvement, it was very distressing. I bought this on Saturday and within hours the inflammation had subsided and today it has almost completely cleared. I am delighted. Thank you so much, this has potent anti fungal properties which you can almost feel working. No more harsh face care for me, I’m investing in more balance me products to keep my skin happy from now on and the retinol is in the bin!

Changed my life

Written by Julie on 26th Mar 2021

I had a skin condition above my lip for years that no doctor could diagnose. No treatment worked. But this miracle product cleared it up and it has not come back. I have very oily skin and actually use it all over my fave twice a day and has kept the hormonal outbreaks gone as well. Highly recommend it!!
