Blemish Control Solution
When pores become clogged blemish control solution comes to the rescue. Glycolic and salicylic acids lightly exfoliate and bacteria is confronted head on.
Packed with all-natural ingredients that benefit the skin in countless ways, neutralizing acne-causes while provided balanced moisture to prevent future breakouts.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads, breakouts, and large pores, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin areas). When sweat glands produce too much oil, pores become clogged with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells.
Accumulated sebum contains propionic acid bacteria, which is released into the tissue causing an inflammatory reaction. Blemish Control Solution reduces shine, absorbs moisture and perspiration, providing a long lasting smooth and non-greasy matte finish.
SUPER STAR INGREDIENTS:
Glycolic Acid (5%) – An alpha hydroxy acid that loosens dead skin cells, softens and dissolves debris in the pores. Works with salicylic acid to reduce the appearance of scarring
Salicylic Acid (2%) – Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), provides exfoliation preventing pore clogging and smoothing fine lines/wrinkles, stimulates new cell growth
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)– the biologically active form of niacin, Vitamin B3. It increases the rate of skin exfoliation and increases moisture barrier repair. Studies have shown it to be useful in increasing synthesis of collagen and lipids, inhibiting the transfer of melanosomes and decreasing inflammation; antioxidant that works for aging and acne related issues

We have been using this for years, and it is supreme to anything from the local stores. My teenage kids use it, and so do I, a pre-menopausal outbreak sufferer. It dries quickly and has no odor,so you can put it on anytime of day, and most importantly it dries up pimples without irritating our skin. Love it.
No matter how well I take care of my skin, I will still have a blemish appear now and then. This serum takes care of it... even my husband uses it!
I am not convinced this product is amazing yet. I have been using it consistently and I still get breakouts, but they have minimized. So I am attributing the minimizing of the breakouts to this serum. It dries quickly and goes on easily without an uncomfortable residual feeling.
Best thing I have ever found to help with hormonal acne. After I stopped taking birth control pill, my hormones went nuts and I suffered with severe acne around my chin and lips for years. I tried every type of over the counter skin care and finally went to my doctor. This was the only thing that ever worked and it was far less expensive than anything else!
Adult issues with skin problems are such an issue to deal with. It seems that I will always have some kind of pimple pop up now and then. However, this product not only helps clear a blemish, but also prevents new ones!
Nightime ritual of washing...and then this product before a moisturizer and I barely have a complexion issue anymore... LOVE IT!
