When blackheads, excess oil, and enlarged congested pores have overstayed their welcome, give them the boot with the Acne B.O.P. Facial Serum! This serum is designed as a concentrated treatment for a very specific problem (problems that just happen to be the biggest culprits of acne breakouts and lowered self-esteem). In fact, this serum tackles “the big 3” problems so well, it’s named after them!
- Blackheads: This serum helps detox & purify those bad boys!
- Oil: This serum balances excessive oil production. When this is balanced and skin is exfoliated regularly, acne is stopped before it can start.
- Pores: As in enlarged, congested pores. This serum helps wash out and clear up congestion so pores can heal and relax.
In a nutshell:
- Tackles the major signs of congestion
- Relieves overworked pores of blackheads and excess oil
- Helps prevent acne breakouts
- Balances oil production
- Absorbs quickly into the skin
- Formulated with clean and kind ingredients
How to Use
- 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!).

This only can also be used as a natural antiseptic; it can even protect from tetanus germs and fungal infections, making it a preferred ingredient from those who suffer from skin ailments like eczema.

I already use a moisturizer! Why add a serum?
I don’t believe in adding more products to your skincare 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.
