Description

  • BHA Clarifying Serum by Renée Rouleau uses a powerful blend of time-released Lactic, Glycolic and Salicylic Acids to clear clogged pores, lift blemish scarring and red marks, lessen oil production and reduce acne-causing bacteria—without causing irritation. Pores will be cleaner and appear less bumpy and you'll see a dramatically noticeable improvement in your skin's clarity and texture (even over other salicylic creams), with continued use. Ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. The result? Smoother, clearer and more even-toned skin with fewer visible blemishes.

    Size: 0.5 fl oz

    I should’ve started with this product FIRST!

    It’s been a month since using this and I’m finally seeing my skin clear up from breakouts. I used to have to use the anti bump treatment every night but now I have less breakouts overall. This is a must for hormonal acne prone skin. I’m still patiently waiting for the hyperpigmentation to go away but I know that it will happen soon! I wish I would’ve used this product from the jump when I first started using Renee’s line.

    Life Saver!

    I use this serum as a spot treatment and it helps calm down my breakouts in a few days. For hormonal acne the rapid response detox masque and this product work well together to prevent and eliminate it.

    Great serum (+ products) for breakouts!

    About my skin: I’m 29 and have always had oily skin. Recently, my skin has gotten a little less oily, and I’ve started to struggle with stubborn acne that I think is hormonal. // I’ve been using this serum at night for two weeks, alternating with the skin correcting serum + using anti-bump and the spot treatment lotion as needed. I bought these because I was desperate to find something to help with stubborn acne that my old products (from Sephora) just couldn’t handle. After two weeks, I still have some breakouts, but the size / intensity has reduced, and the overall quality of my skin has dramatically improved (clear pores, redness diminished) such that I feel way more confident going without makeup to let my skin breathe. (I know Renee Rouleau encourages wearing makeup to protect skin, but my skin is so picky that I’d personally prefer to avoid face makeup if I can right now.) If you’re struggling with acne, I would highly recommend trying these products. I also have the detox mask and the daytime blemish gel, but for my skin, I think the real MVPs (that I’d recommend people with similar needs start with first) are this BHA clarifying serum, the skin correcting serum, anti-bump, and the spot treatment lotion.
