Love this serum. I like to use it whenever I have any blemishes starting or red spots. Works really quickly for me and seems to reduce it immediately. Definitely purchasing again.


Feels fresh, rubbed into skin. Definitely skin is less inflamed.

This serum seems to have brought about a major skin purging episode for me but after two weeks of using it my skin is calming down and is definitely clearer and smoother.

Hannah Hudson

Skin feels beautiful and spots have cleared up

It’s great. Good job again

Lorraine Young

I never want to stop using this! Used with the clarifying cleanser, my skin looks clear and healthy again.

I’m over the moon with this product. After suffering with comedones over my nose and chin for nearly 40 years, I have a massive improvement in 3 weeks!

Damien OConnor

Does a great job of exfoliating without having to scrub my face harshly, recommend


Kim Murphy

I used this on alternate days with Regenacalm 2% Retinol and Vitamin C Serum. I’ll never stop using these. It’s cleared up my skin and made me look so much healthier.

I'm using this to replace spot treatments in plastic & I have found it quite effective. When I put it on a pimple before bed, it is usually smaller & less red in the morning.

Anna Koguciuk

Good product. Will buy it again


Only been using a few weeks and cannot believe the effect on my skin. Got rid of redness and marks, my favourite product. Amazing.


noticeable results!

THIS FRICKING WORKS! The best spot treatment I've ever used.


Cannot recommend this serum enough! I have tried so many products on the market to try and get rid of my black heads on my nose and none of them worked but this worked within a few days! I’m amazed!!! It’s also made my skin softer and brighter than it’s ever been with the gentle exfoliator it contains. It’s a little bit oily for the day in my opinion so I use it once at night and the results have been amazing! Possibly the best skincare product I’ve ever used.

Joanna Plant

I think this works really well with the cleanser my skin looks much clearer


I was looking for a product specifically with Salicylic acid to treat my clogged pours. However, I’ve got dry and sensitive skin, so I have to be extra careful with acids. Fortunately, this is one of the best products I’ve ever tried! This Serum is simply AMAZING! It did not dry out my skin at all, in stead it treated the stubborn sebum. My pours got visibly lighter already after first week of usage, and all without making my skin peel, crack, dry out or feel tight; what is more important it did not cause any irritation. It seems to work well on pimples and post acne too, healing both in just couple of days. This is exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t be happier!

This like all the other Facetheory products I have tried is lovely. No irritation on my sensitive skin , and a clear Visible improvement to the look of my skin overnight.

I am using the following regime both morning & night, every day: 1. Clarifying Cleanser (C2). 2. Cera-C Pore Reducing Toner. 3. BHA Exfoliating Serum. 4. Supergel Oil-free Moisturiser (M3). The complete combination of all of the products has made my skin visibly tighter & brighter. The red areas on my face (mainly my chin & jawline) have reduced & the overall amount of spots / bumps on my face has lessened also however I am still breaking out. This said, when breakouts occur the spots are dealt with very promptly. They also no long scab or longer. My partner has noticed a difference in my face also. I would love a foaming face wash from Facetheory!

Sas McKenzie


Great - works really well for blackheads

Caroline Eriksson

A very good exfoliating serum !!


I am actually shocked at how brilliantly this works! I use it once a day between cleansing and moisturising and if a spot came up I’d put a little more onto that before bed. With proven results I’m now looking for a full skincare routine with facetheory

Rebecca Okeiga

This product is reallyyyy amazing!! It has cleared almost all my dark spots and pigmentation and I have used it for almost a month now. I cannot to wait to see how my face looks two months from now with continuous product usage.


Very good product, my skin is very soft and it's glowing. I recommend it.
