Salicylic acid is a well-known oil-soluble acid that is the gold standard in treating blackheads and enlarged pores. This exfoliating superstar can unclog pores and balance blackhead-prone, oily skin by working inside the pores to clear out dead skin cells that clog them. Sarcosine joins forces with BHA to further improve combination skin-related problems such as excess oil production.

Give me the worst acne ever!

Ir gave me the worst acne ever! All face and neck (where I put this serum) got the worst acne ever. Every pore got infected! 3 week is going on and I still have a lot of pimples and scars from this !


Εξαιρετικό. Ορατά αποτελέσματα ήδη από τις πρώτες εφαρμογές, χωρίς κανένα πρόβλημα

Shipping sucks

My online order never arrived . I need a refund now ,


Absolutely nothing to complain about, aside from not being able to buy it in a bigger bottle, yet. Cosmetically elegant, soaks in lovely. Still figuring out how I like to use it more - mornings or evenings. But I have been consistently using it on my body too and I’m in love.

We love it!

Highly recommend!!! Such a good product and offers exceptional quality in terms of the price.

Ordered this for myself and my husband (who is a newcomer to skincare regimes) and it works exceptionally well. We both have different skin types, complexions and use cases.

Me: dry non-acne prone skin with enlarged pores (nose and cheeks) and prescription retinoid creme user.

Husband: oily skin but not acne prone, very prone to sebaceous filaments on nose and enlarged pores on nose and forehead.

The formula feels very gentle, even for my sensitive skin due to retinoid use. I also use it for my arms as I have keratosis pilaris and see good effects! Yet, I often fail in applying it frequently enough to see the spots go away for more than 1 day. That’s my fault though :)
