Absolutely love this product. After reading the other positive reviews I decided to give it a try and now I wouldn’t be without it. My problem area is my chin which has been aggregated even more by wearing masks; normal ones and the FFP3 ones that we have to wear in the hospital. Since using this serum I have noticed a huge reduction in my breakouts, the odd one appears now and then but they are not as angry and do not last as long, allowing my skin to repair itself and my previous spot scars are starting to fade, YAY! The serum also smells amazing with a very calming effect. Highly recommend this product as part of your daily skincare routine.

Amazing product

Written by Amy Taylor on 27th Oct 2020

I suffer from cystic acne. Around my chin, in particular, has always been the biggest problem. I started using the Pure Skin Face Wash, which did wonders on its own, but I still had some small breakouts every now and then. I added the Congested Skin Serum to my skincare routine after getting a free sample and I truly wouldn't be without it now. I use it on my chin every day, and since then breakouts have been nearly nonexistent - love, love, love these products!

Love love love

I received this as a sample through IPSY and it is the only product I’ve ever purchased again. This stuff is amazing and helps with small breakouts practically overnight. I had even started using other treatments bc I was almost out of my sample, but had to start using again bc it works!! Buying from now on as my spot treatment. It doesn’t dry out your skin and actually moisturizes. Kinda bummed about the cost of shipping (didn’t realize international was so high) but worth it for a great product.

Amazing product BUT....

Written by Helen on 20th Oct 2020

This product is amazing, my two teenagers swear by it and I and use it myself if I have any kind of breakout. It literally works like magic. BUT why Balance Me did you change the packaging? The new dispenser squirts the product out uncontrollably and I am losing more than I am able to use. I don’t want to give the product any less than 5 stars because it is truly fantastic but please listen to this feedback about the packaging!

Great serum!

Love how it makes the skin feel cleaner and tighter after application. It helps breakouts reduce more quickly but I find I am still breaking out in general.

Very Happy

Written by Lydia Pidduck on 14th Oct 2020

I am trying this product for the first time to complement my other Balance Me products that I already use religiously. I must say that I am very impressed with it! I have been getting quite a few spots due to wearing a mask so this really helped me clear them. I love the smell and the feel of this and it actually works. I'm very happy.

Works like magic

Wow! This product is incredible. I love how it makes my skin feel. It clears up small blemishes sometimes over night. Its amazing. I also really love that it is a natural product. So nice to know I'm not pumping my skin with chemicals.

I’m obsessed

Written by Nicole on 10th Sep 2020

I’ve been using this serum for about four years now. A little goes a long way, and it does wonders for my skin. I have combination to oily skin that is acne prone. I mostly break out around that time of the month, and this does a great job combating that. It doesn’t make my skin dry, nor does it make it oily. My Ph is really restored. I apply a dime sized amount all over my face once or twice a day depending on how much I think I need it. It’s my holy grail product that has replaced about three others.

great product!

I got a sample in birchbox some time ago and I fell in love! it really works on my spots ( I am in my 30ies) and it smells fabulous! I keep buying it every few months because I use it all the time. Really recommend!

Magical Serum

Written by Sam on 17th Aug 2020

I absolutely love this stuff. I have been using it for years now and it never fails me. I use it as a spot treatment before bed and in the morning the blemish is visibly smaller. It NEVER dries your skin out. Would highly recommend.
