When blackheads, excess oil, and enlarged congested pores have overstayed their welcome, give them the boot with the Acne B.O.P. Facial Serum!

In fact, this serum tackles “the big 3” problems so well, it’s named after them!

I already use a moisturizer! Why add a serum?
I don’t believe in adding more products to your skin care routine than needed, so you might be wondering why I’ve added serums to my line!
First off, I use them all the time! Why? Because serums are liquid tonics that are packed with vitamins, anti-oxidants and ingredients that contain active properties that target specific concerns. If there’s something specific you want to work on, serums are an easy way to add some extra oomph to your routine!
Secondly, serums are formulated to penetrate deep into your skin so they can heal and target specific concerns. They are able to penetrate deeper than moisturizers and can help restore skin to a balanced state. Plus, they are non-comedogenic, so no need to worry about clogged pores or a greasy residue.
Although serums can be moisturizing, their main purpose is to add nutrients deep into your skin that a moisturizer isn’t able to reach and keep the hydration levels in your skin stable. Having said that, keep your moisturizer in your routine! Applying your moisturizer after you apply a serum, will lock the serum into your skin allowing the serum to do its best work without evaporating into the air.
- Apply the serum after applying your mist (if you’re using one) or hydrator, and before your moisturizer. While moisturizers help lock serums into your skin, serums help lock mists into your skin! You don’t have to wait for the mist to fully absorb before applying your serum. But you should wait a few minutes between applying your serum and moisturizer.
- Apply any time after you wash your face (hands, or other affected area).
- During the winter, our skin needs extra help staying hydrated and protected from the elements. So, layer up your protection by using a mist, serum and moisturizer before heading out into the cold (or spending a lot of time in the dry indoor air!).

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
In the directions it says to apply after using a mist, but I'm currently using the hydra healing skin rescue gel. Is it ok to put the serum on top of a gel?
Absolutely! The idea is to apply our serums after any hydrator you’re using (whether that’s a mist or a gel). :)
What are the main differences between the Acne BOP and Balance serums?
The makeup of the oils (the actual components of each oil) is a significant difference as is the active properties of the essentials oils.
But without getting super meta, Balance serum is better at addressing hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone, and post-acne discoloration.
BOP serum is better at breaking down debris founded in clogged pores.
While they are both acne-prone skin safe, BOP is a better choice for those with oily skin, and Balance Serum is better for those with combo skin (i.e. only oily in their t-zone).
What would you say is the biggest difference between the Acne BOP serum and the refresh & reinforce drops?
So there's a HUGE difference between the BOP serum and the RR drops. The serum is a specific blend plant-oils that are good for balancing oil (through providing the skin with what it's trying to replace by pumping out more oil), decongesting (breaks down clogs), and giving a major dose of nourishment to the skin (vitamins, antioxidants). It's a product that is rich and provides essential building blocks (lipids) to the skin.
RR drops, on the other hand, don't provide building blocks or nourishment - instead, they help control oil by mopping it up. RR drops have to be used CAREFULLY as too much could dry out the skin and encourage congestion! It's for those who need some help keeping oil-munching bacteria from getting out of control.
