      Love the product, but it doesn't last long

      One of the few serums I've tried that can calm down my hormonal acne. However, it doesn't last much longer than a couple of weeks (with 1-2 pumps twice a day), which makes it poor (pore?) value for money. Really wish it would be released in a larger volume.

      Love it!

      Absolutely love this product. I didn't have to use it for long before I saw results.

      Wouldn't recommend

      I got this in my birchbox and used this where there are some blackheads on my nose and it made it so much worse. Now one of them started bleeding and the skin around it is really red. I tried using it again on my forehead where some acne spots are and it didn't work either. Definitely would not recommend.

      I recieved this in my birch box and I am so in love with it that I purchased 2 more before even finishing the sample. I have dry skin but get weird bumps and congestion on the sides of my nose and forehead. It is the only product I know of that gets rid of them. Love love love it.

      Surprisingly the best aftershave ever!

      I became a fan of Congested Skin Serum for the obvious reasons: sorting blemishes out. But noticing the serum would make my skin heal overnight, I realised it would be work as an aftershave balm.

      Very effective on oily skin

      I'm on my 30s and this is the first product I came across at that definitely controls oiliness at bay. Gradual skin changes are visible as well - skin tone gets better, dewy skin effect, minimal to no redness at all. I would say the only downside of it is the size. It is only travel size and lasts you a month in total. Overall, the product is highly effective.

      Little life saver

      This product works wonders! It is great for keeping unwanted oiliness at bay and calming the odd breakout. My make up would not stay in place all day without putting this on my T- Zone first!

      Acne slayer

      This serum is the best thing I've ever used. It has literally changed my life. To go from having adult pin prick acne for years and always struggling with spots since my teens (I'm 29 now so I've tried EVERYTHING!!!) to having no spots WHATSOEVER a radiant complection, no black heads and most importantly no painful acne boils on my jaw line has boosted my confidence and increased my comfort in my own skin. Thank you Balance Me you are a life saver and the friends I've recommended this too have fully agreed it's changed their lives! P.s this may sound like a gushy over zealous review but I cannot play down how good this is....

      LOVE IT

      I absolutely adore this serum. I am prone to breakouts and I have oily and also sensitive skin. I apply this product to spot prone areas before bed and in the morning the skin I applied this to is noticeably less red and the spots look less inflamed if not gone! Best product I've tried.

      Amazing but please issue larger size!

      This product has been great for my acne prone adult skin. I use it night and day all over my face and believe it has really helped. So please please please issue a larger size so I can invest in a longer lasting version. Thanks for creating this wonder product!

      Reduces spots overnight

      I apply a blob of this directly to a spot before I go to bed. When i wake up i find that the size and the redness is hugely reduced, and the spot hasn't been dried out so i don't then suffer with a flaky dry patch which is often harder to cover than the spot itself! It smells very soothing and also takes away any soreness, so the spot is much easier to cover up and i do not worry about it throughout the day! I've tried tonnes of spot creams but none give the results this does!

      Fast & Reliable

      As I rarely have spots, I used the product once, but it took only 24 hours for my skin to completely recover. No other product has ever been so efficient.

      Perfect for stress-related breakouts

      I use this product when I have a lot of breakout due to stress and exams, and have found it works well and recovers the skin well over time without drying my skin.

      Since the birth of my second child 17 months ago my skin has been really awful, I was getting terrible hormonal spots around my chin every couple of weeks and nothing would shift them, resulting in a what I called my 'spot beard'!! They were unsightly and I constantly wore make-up to cover them which only made things worse. I've tried loads of different products, all useless! After a few days of using the skin congestion serum my spots were gone and I've kept using it as a preventative measure. Can't quite believe how well it''s worked!

      Unlike other similar, products, it doesn't give a dry feeling.

    • Carly Wright, Balance Me Customer

      Best spot treatment I have come across in my 27 years of trying everything I can get my hands on. Within 5 days of twice daily use, current spots gone and old marks faded to near nothing. Fresh scent, light on the skin and non greasy, does exactly what it says, I couldn't be happier.
