Recommended for acne-prone and irritated complexions

I had the opportunity to try Blissoma Smooth A+ Perfecting Serum ($25.99). After reading the product details, it sounded like a miracle cure to me – a potent formula for oily, acne-prone, irritated and ruddy complexions! My skin isn’t particularly sensitive, but I do have combination-oily skin that flares up once a month, with a bit of redness. I am in my late 20s and have changed my skincare regimen in favor of anti-aging products. I have visible pores, and some acne marks.

I’ve used Blissoma’s Smooth A+ Perfecting Serum for about a month, mainly in my nighttime regimen, or as a spot remover whenever I have a pimple. The first thing I noticed about this serum was the texture. It’s moisturizing and takes quite a while to absorb into my skin, hence the reason why I wasn’t comfortable using it in the morning. I had to pile on my sunblock; applying the serum beforehand made my face greasy. So, I was pretty comfortable using it as my night serum.

The effect of Blissoma Smooth A+ Perfecting Serum product is immediate. I applied it whenever I had unwanted redness on my cheeks and overnight my skin would become normal and calm. I find that when I use it as a spot treatment, my pimples healed faster and didn’t leave a scar or dark mark at all, which was pretty impressive.

The nice thing about this serum is that it’s certified vegan and is made up of essential oils, without silicones or fillers, which tend to clog my pores. I appreciate that in a product. It does have quite a strong fragrance, so for those who are sensitive to fragrances, this may not be for you. It’s kind of an herbal, lavender scent.

Needless to say, I will continue to use this serum as an overnight treatment when my complexion gets ruddy or if I have a lot of breakouts.

    Hi there, thank you for reading. I did not notice tightening of the pores---then again, pore size is determined by a lot of factors, including genes, so it takes work to actually reduce them. I myself don't really subscribe to pore minimizing regimen simply because I have oily skin so I kind of accepted that... I just keep them clean and use pore minimizer/powder to minimize their appearance!

    You can try it out, I'm not sure though if it would work for rosacea, so many skin types and what worked for me may not work for you. But if you like natural/organic products, then this is worth a try.

    This sounds really good! If this serum is moisturizing but non comedogenic, if it fights redness, reduces imperfections/blemishes and is anti aging, then it's perfect for me.
    Can you tell me whether this tightened your pores, even just a bit? I also have combo skin with quite prominent pores that tend to clog up and a hint of rosacea on my cheek area. Would you recommend it for my skin type?
    Thank you!
