Love, love, love it

I don't often get spots or blemishes but as soon as I see something appearing I use this congested skin serum. It works like magic. It really works to clear my skin fast.

Absolutely amazing

Written by Beccy Hands on 24th Aug 2023

This is the only product that has actually worked on my teen girls blemish prone skin and we’ve tried loads of products. They find it so soothing when they have a breakout and their skin settles down straight away - they both only use Balance Me products now, so glad they have finally found something that helps.

Really nice serum that doesn’t sting spots or cause any redness or irritation. It smells amazing and I love it so much I use it all over my face as a serum to keep spots at bay!

game changer for me

Written by fh on 24th May 2023

This product combined with the niacinamide booster has been a game changer for me. For the last 6-12months i'd been suffering with hormonal acne ( yay 40's), which a totally new thing for me. I tried a range of products and supplements and this is the only thing that has worked. My skin is back to its former -clear - glory. Highly recommend!

I suffer with hormonal breakouts and this little bottle of magic has helped me gain my confidence back, as soon as you feel a nasty painful bump coming up, pop a good blob of this on the area at night, for me it has stopped spots in there tracks and healed the ones that broke out a lot quicker than any other product I have tried. I take it to work and damp a light coverage on a pesky pimple, even over my makeup it has an impact. This is now my 2nd bottle with a 3rd in skin care tray so I don’t run out. It’s light weight, non sticky, non greasy, and smells like cloves but fresher

Great serum

Arrrgh menopause!! Getting little outbursts of spots. This serum literally calms the skin overnight. No burning or flaky skin

Soothing and gentle

Written by Laura on 15th Oct 2022

This gentle scented serum is unlike any other spot product I’ve used before. The smell is amazing but I can’t quite place it. My skin doesn’t burn or dry out like it does with other products and it gently soothes away my blemishes. Great for sensitive skin

Great for helping blemished skin

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.
