I used this for the first time tonight after trying a new cleanser. This does not burn or anything and my skin feels extremely soft. I think I will like this product also! BTW, I LOVE the chocolate orange drizzle lotion sample!

i was just wondering if anyone who's ordered the bha recently has had any luck with getting the crystals (from cold weather conditions) to dissolve . . .

I've been using the BHA for about 2 weeks now. I have lots of crystals in the bottle but I just left it there. But I had emailed Kim and asked her about it. She said that you could use your hairdryer (on low/warm speed), warm up the bottle than shake it vigorously. I haven't tried that because the crystal doesn't bother me. I asked if the crystal would be a problem if it was still in the bottle and Kim said that the only thing would the crystals might scratch your skin but I just take out the crystals when I feel it on my fingers.

qisme615 - there shouldn't be 'a lot' of crystals. I will send you a new bottle.

It's no problem - there really shouldn't be a lot of crystals, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I'd rather send you a new bottle & that way you will be better able to judge if the product works for you or not. Smile

How does the healing serum work for blackheads?

Annie R -
The healing serum really isn't formulated to help with blackheads - it's more for treating inflammation. A BHA product would be more appropriate for treating blackheads, since it works on the pores from the inside out.

I thought there were notes about how difficult it is to get the serum out of the bottle but I can't find the reference here.

So far, I really like the healing serum though "heaping and massaging" is causing some dryness.

What I find pretty annoying is getting the serum out of the bottle. I know you have to tip it and wait for the drop to form but this takes a fairly long time - time I already don't have!!!! _)*&^%$@! GGGrrrr. Essential oils have the same drop system and never take that long to come out. I think I;m going to pour the serum into a small bottle with a dropper to minimize morning rage... Laughing

I'm not sure why a few of you are having such problems with the droppers. I've used the euro-droppers for about 8 years now & other than having to wait for about 5-10 seconds for the first drop to come out, they've always worked fine for me. Confused

Essential oils are usually much thinner than carrier oils - that is why they come out faster.

I don't like to use regular eyedroppers because the essential oils can get up into the dropper top & eat away at the rubber - plus if you knock the bottle over, you're going to lose everything inside.

I don't want to just use an open bottle with a plain lid because there is too great a chance of a spill - and again, you lose all of your product.

If you really hate the euro-dropper, you can remove it by gently pulling up on it after inserting a fingernail between it & the bottle top. Then just recap with the black top. Smile

Yep, that's exactly what I did. Works perfect for me now.
I want to add that I didn't have any problems with my dropper, I'm just impatient Very Happy

I have been using this for two months and I think it is a keeper.

While Kim does not suggest it to be used all over, I have been rubbing it on my spots and then using the remind on my blemish prone areas. It has kept that area moisturised without breaking me out, so two thumbs up.

I do think it helps to speed up healing, especially the dry skin/flaky stage when using BHA/AHAs. Indeed using this and Dermalogica's Gentle Cream Exfoliant I had nearly two weeks of blemish free skin around my chin area. This is big news given the fact that I had two or three deep zits there before. Cool

Okay, I got this about a week and a half ago, and when I got it, I had some bumps that were starting to heal up. I put this serum on them, and I could swear they healed up faster than normal. This week, I ended up with an inflamed whitehead looking thing near my eye area, and I dabbed a bit of this on, overnight the redness died down, and within a day or so, it healed. I am absolutely loving this right now, and I think I'll never be without! It's great for healing up bumps and breakouts on the face.

Edit: about the eurodropper - I actually like it. At first I was having problems getting the product to come out when I realized there was an air bubble stuck in it, so I tapped the bottom of the bottle to dislodge the air bubble, and it's worked great since.

I've been using the healing serum for a few days now and I can't believe how well it works. I had some of those small bumps on my forehead, the ones that aren't really pimples but never go away. Well they are gone now and the only new products I have used are the healing serum at night and the clarifying serum twice a day.

Does anyone know if there is anything in the healing serum or clarifying serum that wouldn't be safe to use if you are pregnant? I would like to tell my sister about them but she is pregnant right now.

DH got one blemish near his eye and it was hurting him so he was asking me if I have anything to make it go away so I applied the healing serum on him, and it deflated the next day. He calls the healing serum "magical potion". Laughing

OMG I love this!!
After 2 days one pimple on my forehead disappeared without a trace, a pimple the size of a grape (OK maybe a teensy weensy grape) by the side of my nose deflated a LOT and the breakout on my chin which I thought I'd bring with me to my grave actually looks like it's clearing up!
LOVE LOVE LOVE


Kim you're a lifesaver!!

By the way, in my zealousness to zap each and every single zit I have been using this 3 times a day...is that OK? No dryness or flaking at all so far since my skin's really oily...

Anyhoo those in two minds about trying this out... wait no more!!!

It's tempting to order this. I just bought the Burt's Bees herbal blemish stick, which also uses oils. It's been ok so far but this sounds better.

I haven't used it for that, so I can't say, but I did find that the mattifying pearl cream helped with fading marks; it made a noticable difference overnight actually, I was surprised.

*ETA- I was using the pearl powder overnight at the same time, so maybe it was both that helped.

I've been using this for quite a while and I'd have to say no. I don't think I like applying it onto healed pimples as I find (although I can't totally attribute to this) that the oils might actually make me spring up another pimple in the same spot. But this does help scabs heel faster if you've extracted.

skim: re - herbal blemish stick - it's really not that good and it's sorta greasy. Plus the roller ball gets cloudy very easily so it's not that hygienic, it's mostly alcohol. It's mainly the design of the roller ball that makes it cloudy/unhygienic. If you're looking for a similar product I'd say go for Desert Essence Blemish Touch stick - much more effective, roller ball is GOOD plus it's not greasy at all. It's still mostly alcohol but I don't mind it, I much prefer that to the bb's. It's sorta my dab and go product or after extraction product where the IFP is more of my AM/PM product which I don't use anymore since I started Taz.

Sormuimui, does this have tea tree oil in it? I think I bought this before and never ended up using it. The one I have is in a clear frosted glass or plastic container....I need to find it.
