    I am a woman in my 30s who has had combination skin and moderate acne since puberty. I use this product every day after cleansing and before dotting on moisturizer as needed. Like the other products in the Boots Expert line, this serum contains willow tree bark, a natural source of salicylic acid. Like other products containing salicylic acid, I find that the Boots Expert line does not eliminate my most stubborn acne. However, I have found that it is an excellent companion to a cleanser containing a stronger acne-fighter, benzoyl peroxide. Used in this combination, it does not dry my skin out and it has significantly improved the overall quality of my skin, which is now softer and smoother than when I started using it. For that alone, it's worth buying and using.

    I used this product daily before moisturizer in the morning. I have acne-prone combination skin. It definitely wasn't helping my skin - in fact, my acne and blemishes became worse than usual - but I kept on using it in case my skin just needed a couple weeks or so to get used to it. Eventually I gave up, and after just a couple days of quitting this stuff my skin began to clear up and go back to normal. So... definitely does not work for everyone at least.

      Comments about Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Serum, 1 fl oz:

      As an acne sufferer since my teens, I have tried so many OTC remedies over the years that I've lost count! I decided to try this product because it's a serum and not a "lotion" or a "cream." Along with using this product on a regular basis, I have since begun limiting the use of BB cremes and foundations. I also started using a Phisoderm face wash once daily. Personally, I believe that all these factors combined formed a "perfect storm" of blemish prevention for me.

      My skin is extremely oily and I have found this serum to be a perfect daytime moisturizer that is lightweight and does not clog my pores like others do (although I'd need to also apply SPF if spending time outdoors). The same cannot be said for ANY other facial moisturizers that I've tried in the past, even those that claim to be oil-free and noncomedogenic.

      I make no claims that this serum is a "miracule cure" for acne, but it definitely does the trick for me with respect to preventing pimple flare-ups ... even those painful hormonal breakouts. For the price, why not give it a try and see if it works for you too? :)

        Okay, at first when you use it, IT WILL MAKE YOU BREAK OUT a lot. But that means it works because it's bringing out all the impurities. Give it a week after you first use it and you'll start to clear out. I promise you it works!

        Comments about Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Serum, 1 fl oz:

        I have to admit that though I have very oily and VERY acne-prone skin, I also have it very much under control with a strict regimen including both OTC and script-only products. That said, it is so hard to find a moisturizer that takes care of my skin in cold, dry weather that doesn't turn my face into an oil slick, clog pores or sting dry and chapped spots. THIS has been the product that has been the moisturizer I've looked for for so long. It's light, fragrance-free and absorbs quickly without leaving behind a forest of blackheads the following day. There isn't a single ingredient in it that will actively treat acne, but it does act as a terrific, light moisturizer.

              This is the only blemish treatment that has not given me itchy, dry skin. It is very gentle and keeps my adult acne under control. It feels refreshing and somewhat moisturizing on the skin. I use it at night and will let it sink it for half an hour before I apply my night cream.

              Comments about Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Serum, 1 fl oz:

              The only bad thing about this product is the packaging. When I pump out the liquid it goes everywhere. I'll just have to be a little more careful with it.
              I use this every morning and night. I usually have pimples on my forehead and around my nose, but they have been visibly reduced since I've started using this product.
              You just need a little bit on parts of your face where you need it. A little goes a long way. (:
              I will definitely be repurchasing~

                Comments about Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Serum, 1 fl oz:

                My daughter had acne "bumps" all along her hair line, especially on her forehead area. She had tried a few other things, but nothing semed to help, Just after a few days of using the Boots Expert Anti-blemish Serum, the acne was almost completely gone. As a pre-teen, she was becomeing very self-concious about her face so this was a wonderful find. She is very happy that this worked so quidkly. I would recommend it highly. I was also happy with the price. Much less expensive than some of the other acne products.
