Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver for blemish-prone skin I have been using this product for 6 weeks now and wow, the results are incredible. I have a combination skin prone to breakouts and ever since I started using blemish + age defense, my skin has improved dramatically and I had only one spot during this whole time. The recommendation is to use once or twice a day, but I can say that I am having great results applying 3-4 drops once in the morning before moisturiser and sunscreen. I have noticed my skin less shiny, looking brighter and more even – which I believe is due to the anti ageing ingredients. Overall I am very happy with the product and will keep using it as part of my daily regime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results in a short space of time I was excited to try this product in the hope it would work on my fine lines and early signs of wrinkles which i suffer from. I also suffer from minor white heads which often turn in to blackheads, which is why I liked the fact this product has Salicylic Acid in it. The serum itself sinks in to the skin easily and almost instantly. In just over a week, my skin feels fresher at the end of the day, and I no longer have access sebum on my skin come evening time. I've also noticed my pores look a lot smaller, especially on my nose, where I notice them the most. The fine lines around my nose also look minimised. I love this product and it's not a staple of my skincare routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dream come true! I have struggled with adult cystic acne on my chin and aging at the same time. I had tried so many things and was about to throw the towel. Legit went back to bet soap and nothing, I did see improvements with acne but needed something to moisturize. My friend recommended this product line so I figured hey why not try? I am beyond impressed and never through this stuff would do this good for my skin. My scars are slowly fading, I have a refreshed youthful glow to the rest of my skin, I haven’t had a break out (touch wood), Must try!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for preventing adult acne I've never used anything better to help me with my adult acne, which I've had from most of my adulthood. Great for fighting blackheads, blocked pores, and for preventing new spots appearing. What is even better, it helps with small wrinkles, which is unbelievable, as both issues are a real concern to me at the moment. An ideal product for my skin. I'm a little concerned that I may build tolerance with time, therefore I am now trying to use it every other day, and not daily. However, still an amazing skin care serum which I cannot recommend highly enough for age concern and acne prone skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, effective, non greasy- great for oily skin types This serum is a light weight, non greasy, non oily serum. Occasionally it does tingle a little after application but this very quickly subsided. I love that it is a serum with a mix of AHA’s and BHA’s and in just two weeks I’ve already noticed an improvement in my black head congestion & the overall appearance of my skin. It’s also helping reduce the appearance of old acne scares. I’ve not had a breakout while I’ve been using the serum so I’m over the moon. It leaves your skin feeling velvety and it absorbs well and works great along side the Vit C serums & Hydrating skinceutical serums. This is now a skincare stable!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Used as an on-spot treatment Due to the alcohol content, I have only used this as a treatment directly on any spots. I wouldn’t want to use it anywhere else for fear of it drying the skin out. I haven’t had any big spots but this worked well at clearing out overnight a collection of small whiteheads. It has worked well but I think I will look to other products with salicylic acid at a lower price point; I would like to use a similar serum without alcohol over larger pores on my nose and cheeks and this is quite pricey if I’m only to use it as a spot treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've only used this for one week but it has been good so far. I have dry skin, oily T-zone and get acne. I can't comment on the anti wrinkle/fine lines properties yet but it works for blemishes. It helps keep my face spot-free and if I do get a spot it goes away much quicker. I has worked amazingly well for my oily t-zone, it's much better now, almost no oil until late evening. So far my skin is smooth and feels good. I have been using it every day for the past 7 days, morning and evening. My skin is quite sensitive but it hasn't reacted badly, and so far it doesn't feel like it's making it dryer either. Very happy. It absorbs in a few seconds and the skin is left non-sticky, velvety almost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not suitable for my sensitive skin Based on the glowing reviews for this product, I was really hoping for great results. My skin is quite sensitive and reactive, but I also struggle with breakouts and occasional cystic acne. Unfortunately, my skin reacted badly to this serum. It made my whole face break out. In case it was just a coincidence, I discontinued use and tried again when my skin had calmed; the same results. Disappointed.
