  • Yay for clear skin

    Kristine G. January 16, 2019

    After trying so many skin care lines out there I finally found something that actually works! My embarrassing adult acne cleared up and I couldn’t be happier 🙂

  • Miracle cream

    Alessandra S. May 30, 2019

    I rarely write product reviews, but this cream is fantastic! I have combination skin, with some acne and some dry areas. This cream is lightweight, non greasy and absorbs immediately. It makes the skin soft (even the driest areas), reduces the appearance of pores and evens the skin tone. It smells great too.

  • Great face lotion

    Jacqueline May 29, 2019

    I purchased this for my teenage son who was struggling with blemishes. This face lotion works great for him and his acne prone skin!

  • Awesome

    Ashaunte May 19, 2019

    It is a great mosturizer, i used this when i had really bad cystic acne hoping it would be my cure, unfortunately accutane is what helped my acne leave for good and this didn’t, but im off accutane now but i still use this and i get the occasional zit and this helps soothe any small bumps. It leaves my face less oily in the day, keeps it soft and fresh feeling and it smells great too. So i don’t regret buying it. Also my acne scars have lots of red pigmentation that i think this has helped out with.

  • Best moisturizer!

    Anlee G. May 10, 2019

    The blemish balm is hands down the best moisturizer I have used period. It’s not oily or over drying. It’s clean fresh and perfect for every skin type.

  • Go-to moisturizer

    Dinorah May 04, 2019

    This is THE best moisturizer I have ever used. I have oily, blemished skin, and after getting off birth control, adult acne became my best friend and worst enemy. Osea blemish balm helps soothe my irritated skin, moisturize, protect, and of course, keeps oils at bay. Light-weight and all the right ingredients, cruelty-free, and small business owned by females. This company hits all my requirements and more.

  • Smells great

    Abby April 25, 2019

    I purchased this after trying a sample and loving it. I suffer from hormonal acne, and unfortunately this hasn’t helped like I hoped it would. I’ve seen no changes after a few weeks. However, it smells great and is really refreshing to put on, also being a good lightweight moisturizer. I might just try something else next time.

  • Didn't workout for my skin type

    Daisy G. April 06, 2019

    I have tried many moisturizers that claim to be oil free but yet feel too thick for my skin. A pro for this moisturizer is it did not feel thick, it absorbed really well to my skin. The only downfall and issue I had with this is I’ve noticed I started to break out, I used this with the mud cleanser travel size. I checked the ingredients & i noticed both products contained a coconut derived ingredient; Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride. I have an oily t zone & coconut oil doesn’t absorb well with my skin. I broke out a bit from this moisturizer around my forehead. If this didn’t have the coconut derived ingredient & it was another ingredient, i’m pretty sure my skin would’ve loved this! If you aren’t sensitive to coconut oil or any ingredient that comes from coconut oil then this will probably workout for you, but as far as my oily t zone and combo skin it didn’t work for me as much as I wanted it to.

  • Middle of the road

    Katie D. February 14, 2019

    This face lotion smells really nice and very refreshing. It also has great ingredients. Unfortunately I didn’t notice any difference as far as existing blemishes or whiteheads, or prevention of further breakouts etc. which honestly is why I bought it and paid more than what I typically would. So I won’t be repurchasing since I can find other products with great ingredients that cost much less.

  • Holy Grail

    Hope February 12, 2019

    I actually have fairly dry/sensitive skin but this balm works well for me. It doesn’t dry me out but is best for managing my blemishes, which aren’t too bad. I still have a spot treatment and I still use a serum or secondary moisturizer or both because I need the hydration in Cali climate now. In NYC though, this during the summer was all I needed. I love this stuff.

  • Hormonal acne goodbye

    Lauren K. January 30, 2019

    Started using the blemish balm day and nite in October. Haven’t had any hormonal acne break outs since. Woohoo!!

  • Works and smells great

    Margaret B. January 16, 2019

    I’ve noticed less break outs in the month I’ve been using it. It smells amazing, and leaves me feeling hydrated, without feeling greasy. I don’t need much product to cover my whole face and neck, so it’ll last a while too. I was honestly hoping it wouldn’t be that great so I didn’t fall in love with an expensive moisturizer… but I’m definitely going to buy it again. And I’m happy to support a woman-owned company with great ethics and great products, regardless of the price point.

  • Holy grail product!

    Iesha December 29, 2019

    I’m on my 4th bottle and will be repurchasing this product for life! It keeps my acne prone skin clear and radiant! The smell is so refreshing. It’s moisturizing enough for winter yet light enough for summer. Can’t recommend enough! I introduced my mom and bestfriend and they both use and love this product now!


    Nj December 28, 2019

    I’ve had acne on and off my whole life, ranging from a few bumps to full out cystic acne. This is the first and only moisturizer I’ve ever used that kept my skin soft and dewy but not oily looking. It’s so gentle and my skin loves it! It’s now a must have for me!

  • Highest Quality Product and Powerful Spot Treatment

    Friederike November 23, 2019

    This is a review coming from an OSEA fan. I was purchasing this in recommendation and I must say, I am quite satisfied with it. It helps my skin to regenerate from hormonal acne. It is effective as spot treatment. Whenever I use it for the whole face skin area, I need to use a lot, like 3x pumps, which I unfortunately can’t maintain, because of its price. I am therefore also using another moisturizer to serve my whole face skin.

  • Feels good but really irritates my eyes

    Kim October 18, 2019

    The consistency of this is really nice and it feels cooling but It has a very heavy herbal fragrance and it really irritated my eyes. If you are super sensative this is probably not for you.

  • new favorite.

    Lauren September 27, 2019

    I started struggling with cystic acne somewhat recently, and although some products have helped, my skin seems stubborn and hasn’t been totally clear. I’ve only been using this (and the Cleansing Mudd) for 8-9 days and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the way my skin looks and feel. I haven’t seen improvement this fast with any other products- and the fact that I don’t have to worry about toxic ingredients is SO nice. I’m pretty sensitive to smell, so the first day or two the rosemary and thyme scents gave me a headache, but now I’m totally used to it and it doesn’t bother me anymore. I have oily skin, so I really like that this doesn’t add to the problem- it’s light and smooth. PLUS, I had an issue (totally my fault) and their customer service was exceptional. They went above and beyond what I expected. That was the cherry on top of my whole experience with OSEA. I found my new favorite!

  • Found my holy grail

    Claire September 21, 2019

    I’m generally very picky about moisturizers and never had one I truly loved that had everything I needed but this one comes pretty darn close. It makes my face extremely soft and plump, it’s lightweight and leaves a velvet finish, never shiny, and it hasn’t clogged pores or irritated my acne! And while it seems expensive, most moisturizers only come in 1oz or 1.7oz, but this one is 2oz! It does have a strong botanical smell that may bother those who are sensitive to smell but I have really enjoyed the smell and it dissipates quickly. I have normal skin that doesn’t get oily or overly dry but I do have adult hormonal acne due to my IUD and genetics, so most moisturizers geared towards acne prone skin can be drying or not hydrating enough but I find this one hydrates and makes the skin really soft while still not being heavy or pore clogging, this may not be the best if you have very dry skin but my normal skin drinks it up and stays soft all day. My new holy grail!


    Nina K. September 21, 2019

    I absolutely love this product! I am fifteen and struggle with the average teenage acne as well as hormonal acne and I love this moisturizer. It helps to control my breakouts but doesn’t get dry as I wear it. It absorbs really quickly and smells like lavender! Having been someone who used to use the strongest acne moisturizers, the moisturizers I used to use felt fine at first but after a while my skin would be very dry. This product doesn’t do this whatsoever. It’s a nice texture and isn’t one of those acne moisturizers that has such a strong scent that it burns your eyes. I really enjoy this but I see myself having to use an oil on top during the dryer months, just because this might be a little too light in the cold weather! Highly recommended to anyone with blemish prone or oily skin!


    Stephanie August 19, 2019

    I struggle with hormonal acne, so sometimes I will have heavy breakouts and sometimes my skin will be clear. I started using this blemish balm along with the ocean cleanser and at times the ocean mud cleanser and I have to say osea malibu is my new best friend. My skin feels AMAZING after using the cleansers and especially the balm. I HIGHLY recommend!

  • LOVE this moisturizer

    Amy July 22, 2019

    Hands-down best moisturizer I’ve used yet. Although I haven’t noticed it helping with blemishes, it does leave my skin feeling balanced. It is not oily at all and actually seems to help reduce oily shine, to borrow words from the product description. It is very soothing and great. The only thing I noticed is that the scent is wonderful but VERY potent, as a warning to people with sensitivities to strong scents.

  • Hands down best moisturizer ever

    Iesha June 14, 2019

    This is the best moisturizer I have ever used! The smell makes me feel so calm. It really helps keep my skin clear. I struggle with random breakouts and this works hard to prevent them.

  • Blemish balm

    Lyndaoliveros June 12, 2019

    I am old my skin is age but I also have acne easily or allergy and with this line I got just a beautiful skin

  • Smells SO good

    Ashley June 06, 2019

    I love this product. I use it every night and the smell is so relaxing. It is perfect for calming the skin.

  • Amazing Results!!

    Genesis July 30, 2020

    I have hormonal acne, and it varies from time to time…but for now, it is a here and there situation…I usually will make my at-home treatments because I feel they are the most useful and “real ingredients.” But after reading reviews and watching one of my favorite bloggers use this product in her daily morning routine, I had the urgency to try it… and the fact that it is ALL NATURAL made it even easier to think about when checking out. Let me just say…after a week of using it, I can see MAJOR results, my face is very dewy in the morning, doesn’t leave a grease residue, actually leaving my skin breathing and FEELING plumped and ready to conquer the day, its all about trusting the process and my goodness I have … I don’t think I’ve ever seen my face this clear in quarantine so fast after using this product as well as using the Essential Corrective Complex, Ocean Cleansing Mudd, Eye Gel Serum as a regime in my routine. IF you need help figuring out what’s right for you, the little customer relation communication is AMAZING–going back and forth asking of which products I should use, really helped me in the end… Overall, this Blemish Balm is amazing, SMELLS beautiful and worth all my money’s y spent!!~ Definitely will be coming back for more 🥰

  • Love everything about this! Getting compliments on my skin (via zoom)

    Sheena July 26, 2020

    I love this product so much! My partner had a facial and was recommended this moisturizer. Since then, we have both been using it for a few weeks and have noticed great results. It is the perfect moisturizer for people who want a moisturizer and never want to feel dry, but also don’t want to feel super oily. My skin has also cleared up considerably. I get hormonal breakouts, which won’t go away with a moisturizer, but they are fewer, smaller, much less inflamed and heal up a lot faster. I use this with the ocean cleanser and I just love the combination of a gentle cleanser and a light but powerful moisturizer. Also, the smell is incredible!!! This moisturizer smells just like a facial, so it leaves me feeling like my skin is at its best and it puts me in such a good mood when I use it in the morning and before bed. The smell is really calming. Overall, this is a really great product. I live in Los Angeles where it’s pretty dry, but also the heat can make you sweaty, so this has been so great at maintaining moisturizer but not sticky skin. Will definitely buy again- it’s officially my staple product!

  • This really works !!

    Nancy H. July 10, 2020

    I am so impressed with this product. Very seldom do products actually do what they say they do, but this one does. I have always had to be careful with what I put on my face as my skin will break out ( even at my age). I started to break out again when I added a different makeup powder to my routine. I hadn’t used powder for years. I use a clean foundation and wanted to add some powder as I like the finished look it gives. Well I started getting small breakouts that would clear up , but come back quickly so I took their quiz and it suggested I use the blemish balm, so I ordered it and low and behold it worked immediately. I couldn’t believe it and continue to use it and haven’t had a breakout since ! Definitely will keep this in my routine !

  • Gentle Zap

    L July 09, 2020

    This is the first product that I have used when I have “unexpected” break outs that seems to get the job done over night. It doesn’t burn my face nor make it dry. I use it along with OSEA’s corrective complex when I have a break out do to hormones, climate, or whatever the case on my nose and chin at the first sign of irritation. My face is clearer the next day and totally clear by day two(hence my title, “Gentle Zap”).

  • Bye Bye Breakouts

    Cara V. July 05, 2020

    I absolutely love this face moisturizer! I am in my early 20s and still get little breakouts during my cycle & this blemish balm keeps my face clear all the time now! I even used it on my husband’s back when he had a few breakouts and they were gone the next morning! Worth the money—invest in your skin 🙂

  • My Favorite Moisturizer...

    Leah F. June 29, 2020

    The blemish balm is perfect for my combo skin. Its the only moisturizer that doesn’t leave my face looking greasy even under sunscreen.

  • Immediately obsessed

    Katelyn June 25, 2020

    After taking the skin quiz, I ordered the Blemish Balm and found it working for me immediately. I had minor issues with blemishes, and I would say my skin is not sensitive. After using Osea products for about a month, my skin feels great and looks great. I cannot wait to see the long-term benefits of the products and try other products they have.

  • Sample review

    Cora May 10, 2020

    I received this as a sample and I’m hooked. Used it for two nights in a row and my blemishes were visibly smaller after the first night. Amazing! I’ve never used something that produced results so quickly. I have sensitive combo skin plus rosacea and this balm didn’t feel heavy or cause my skin to react whatsoever.

  • Beyond Pleasantly Surprised

    Kathryn May 08, 2020

    Frankly, I DO NOT HAVE GOOD ENOUGH WORDS to describe my satisfaction with this product! I decided to use my coronavirus stay-at-home time to research natural skincare products and test them out at home without anyone having to see me IN CASE a product didn’t agree with my skin. I have combination skin, have had frequent (but not horrible) hormonal breakouts since I was a young teenager, I’m frequently stressed, go to school in Florida where the water is hard and gross, and was often too busy to take good care of my skin. Considering all these factors, my skin was dull, uneven, and tired (something I did not realize until AFTER I saw the DIFFERENCE this product made for me). I was looking for a WELL-RATED, LIGHT, moisturizer that simply WOULDN’T BREAK ME OUT and this one seemed to fit the bill (spoiler alert: this product IS all these things). After JUST ONE USE I could see a difference, and now almost a month later, I am EVEN MORE pleased with the results. To be clear, I still get a few hormonal pimples (as expected; it is unrealistic to expect ANY product to completely get rid of zits forever), but there are FEWER of them and they go away MUCH quicker! Plus the rest of my skin is soooo SOFT, clearly hydrated, and MUCH more EVEN, CLEAR, AND ENERGIZED! I would also like to mention that my first job in college was working for a luxury skin-care company who sold very expensive quality moisturizers, and I like this product BETTER! This product WORKS FOR ME! I feel so much more COMFORTABLE going out WITHOUT FOUNDATION! Because I am a science nerd, I do recommend that you do your RESEARCH and try to find the right product for your lifestyle and your skin, and if it seems like this one is a GOOD MATCH on paper, I definitely recommend you give it try!

    Disclosure: Before using the Blemish Balm, I did start using a new brightening cleanser I bought from target a few weeks earlier that also made my skin look a lot better, but I tried to isolate the results of the Blemish Balm from my new cleanser and can say that this moisturizer is definitely a VITAL facet of my new skincare routine and I do not think my skin would look NEARLY as good without it!

    P.S. I have never written an online review for any product or experience before, but this one was worth it. Osea definitely just gained a new loyal client!

  • The smell is everything

    Ione April 28, 2020

    I love the smell! It feels like a mini spa experience and has become part of my routine to take a few deep breaths as I apply this as the last part of my facial routine about 3 times a week. I was originally using it twice daily for the first month I was using it, both because I love the smell and because I was hoping it would help with some stubborn acne. When I told the shop associate that my skin was drying out despite using some other moisturizers as well, she pointed out that the blemish balm has some drying potential. When I pulled back to about 3 times a week, I’m getting the benefit of the product and the smell without the drying. Will keep buying this one!

  • Works well and lasts forever

    Galit March 12, 2020

    I’ve been using this product for a little shy of a year and I’m totally hooked! I have food allergies than give me blemishes and this lotion helps calm my skin. I use it as the last step of my night routine (I use all Osea products both day and night), and notice my skin looking much clearer and calmer in the morning. A little goes a long way too. All I need is one pump to cover my whole face so one bottle lasts me nearly 6 months.

  • Addicting!

    Joan D. February 10, 2020

    I use this product more than necessary because I love the feel and the smell. It keeps my skin disturbances at bay. Love this product!

  • This stuff is gold

    Chloe March 25, 2021

    I love how fresh and calm my face feels after use. I like to use it on its own and sometimes add on some advanced protection cream to areas that aren’t breaking out. It’s really great stuff on its own though

  • Love this product!!!!

    Megan R. March 11, 2021

    I love Osea. I use the Ocean Cleanser and the Blemish Balm, and I’m so happy with the results. This is the most gentle product I’ve used to effectively treat my acne and I’m obsessed with everything about it! I love the smell, and I love feeling connected to and nurtured by the ocean when I use these products. I’m so blessed by this company and their work in the world!

  • I had no idea my skin could look this good

    Emily February 23, 2021

    This was my first purchase from OSEA when I was trying to develop my routine and I’ll never let it go. I had horrible acne with dark marks and this worked miracles. I never thought my skin could be so soft or clear!! I use it twice a day and it lasts forever! Its very gentle (I don’t think I have sensitive skin) and smells amazing.

  • Repeat purchase

    Patti February 06, 2021

    This was actually one of my first purchases from Osea and has been a repeat ever since. I would say I have combination skin and live in a humid environment. The scent of the moisturizer is amazing! Bright, cooling and soothing all at once, a definite spa experience. I feel that it has also helped with mild redness on my cheeks from rosacea as well. I would highly recommend this product.

  • Absolutely Incredible

    Melinda January 26, 2021

    I have consistently suffered from hormonal acne breakouts since my teenage years. They’re consistently large and terribly stubborn spots on my cheeks and jaw line, which can sometimes remain there until the following month. Now in my 40s it is starting to cause scarring, not to mention the embarrassment, and feelings that I appear dirty. I try to not let it ruin my ability to enjoy life, but it’s always the first thing people see and that thought is always in the back of my mind. I try to eat healthy and use products that are natural, but every month comes around with another disappointment.
    I had never heard of Osea before December 2020, but I heard positive things and was willing to jump in and give it an honest try. I am a parent and I work so I don’t have a lot of time for daily pampering, however for one month now I have created a new morning/night routine of ocean cleanser, blemish balm, hyaluronic sea serum followed by advanced protection cream on my neck and forehead (age affected locations). Five minute routine. I am in a state of disbelief. Aside from a few dark spots that remain from the last round of acne, my face is clear!! When I a few started to pop up I immediate dabbed with blemish balm.
    This is not an exaggeration, I could cry. Not only is my face clear but it feels soft and clean, not all dried out as some acne treatments can do. Complete disclosure, I also have done the white algae mask twice this month, which was also such a treat for my skin as well, however I still attribute the magic to the blemish balm! If you suffer with adult acne give it a chance, it might help you too. Thank you Osea!!

  • Fresh, Clean, Moistured!!!!!

    Mely January 01, 2021

    I have struggled with combo/oily skin for a looooong time. This moisturizer is incredible. It sinks into my skin almost immediately, leaves it soft, hydrated, and non-greasy. It doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything, which is amazing because most moisturizers leave me with a slight film to the skin. I still get hormonal breakouts, but it helps to calm and soothe any irritation, and it leaves behind a nice fresh, herbal scent which I really enjoy. This is my third bottle and I am always amazed and thankful at how well it works. Very pleased, and so happy to have found this product!

  • Cool face

    Joni December 26, 2020

    I love applying this cream on my face after I was it, besides smelling so great, it moisturizes without your face feeling greasy.

  • My reactive and sensitive skin loves this stuff

    Anna December 01, 2020

    I have the most ultra sensitive skin, and have been struggling to find a moisturizer that my skin thrives with. I am on my second bottle of the OSEA blemish balm and seriously love it. I use it primarily in my nose/chin breakout areas, but love the feel of it as a general daily moisturizer too. I also like the smell a lot, and am not always partial to scented things as my skin can be so sensitive. It’s not too overwhelming and it’s got a refreshing scent that is soothing before bed and invigorating to wake up/start my day with. It’s become part of my daily and nightly routine. Because it’s got a zippy crisp smell, don’t get it too close to your eyes. (I like to use the Advanced Protection cream (not scented) around my eyes and on my neck at night time, just for a more heavy/rich moisture layer.) Whether you use it all over your face, or just on your sensitive spots that need a lil’ TLC, this stuff is really nice and for reactive, sensitive skin peeps, this stuff has made a visible difference for me with redness, breakouts and whatever other tantrum my face has in mind for that day. I like this. I recommend it.

  • Soothing and healing

    Jillian October 29, 2020

    I pair this product with the ocean cleanser. Using it with the ocean mud is too drying for my combo skin. The essential oils smell amazing and work to keep your skin clear. I use the ocean cleanser and the blemish balm in the morning and then the atmosphere protection cream at night. This combination seems to work really well with my skin and helped clear up these stubborn bumps along my jawline that had been there for ages. Would definitely recommend!

  • bottle hack to get the rest of the product out

    Ami October 12, 2020

    I’ve read in some reviews that people can’t get the last bit of product out of their bottles and end up wasting it because the pump stops working. For this, I like to turn the bottle upside down over night or for a few hours (with the cap still on). All the product should gather at the top. Then if you just keep the bottle on it’s side, at all times, the product should stay accessible enough for you to twist open the cap and kinda scrape the product from the sides using the tube. That’s how I get every last bit!

    as far as this specific product goes- I like it, sometimes my face still feels a bit dry after. I’m trying atmosphere protection cream now, and may consider mixing them for more hydration.

  • see ya NEVER perioral dermatitis

    Kelsey August 30, 2020

    This is my first ever online review but I just have to write one because this blemish balm healed my perioral dermatitis (that I had been dealing with for over two months) in ONE night. This was my first time purchasing osea products and let me say, I AM SOLD. Every product is super calming, non irritating and overall fantastic for my sensitive, dry and hormonal acne-prone skin. LOVE everything I have tried and they have definitely gained a life long customer.

  • Love

    Randi G. August 27, 2020

    Lightweight moisturizer that doesn’t irritate my skin. And it smells AMAZING!!

  • Forever a stamp in my facial routine

    Lauren August 24, 2020

    I love this product. I will never go a day without it! It helps my breakouts stay at bay. I combine this with the sea minerals mist and the hydration oil and my face has never been more clear!

  • lightweight

    Lisa July 23, 2021

    I have oily skin with cystic acne. I have used so many products before. I am using this in combination with the mud cleanser and correction serum. It is lightweight and does not leave my skin feeling oily or sticky. Has a nice essential oils smell. One thing I continue to love about OSEA products is the great smell without harmful “fragrance”. I’ve only been using products for a week but I am so impressed and cannot wait to see what my skin will look like in a couple months.

  • Best blemish control moisturizer

    Mirella April 30, 2021

    I have always struggled to control my blemishes and this moisturizer has helped a lot!! I tend to use it with the essential corrective complex and I am good! Additionally, it is super lightweight and soaks in nicely into the skin.

  • Nice and Lightweight

    Emily April 23, 2021

    I really like this moisturizer. I took a star off because it has a very strong smell that takes a while to dissipate. It is very earthy/medicinal. This moisturizer is very lightweight. It leaves a clean and cool feeling after applying. It doesn’t really seem to have made my skin worse or better blemish-wise. However, I am not reacting to it and it is hard for me to find lightweight moisturizers for my combination skin.

  • Lightweight and Luxurious

    Krista April 12, 2021

    This moisturizer is amazing for my congestion prone skin. Lightweight and does not feel heavy on my face. The smell is an extra bonus, so good!

  • Absolute Game Changer!!

    Nt August 23, 2020

    First off, having dealt with acne as a teenager and now as an adult the biggest problem I’ve had is finding a moisturizer that doesn’t leave my skin oily or clog my pores. I’ve tried everything under the sun and have been unsuccessful until now. This stuff is incredible! I was a bit skeptical after the first application because it felt a bit heavy but immediately after my skin absorbed it, i noticed my skin felt moisturized with no oily residue. I use this in conjunction with the Indie lee brightening cleanser and COq-10 Toner best money I’ve spent so far on my skin. My skin has improved tremendously and I have not had a breakout since I started this routine.

  • Hormonal Acne Weapon!!

    Addi R. July 05, 2020

    I am 23 years old and am stating to get the worst hormonal acne. In the past year I’ve tried so many different products trying to minimize the appearance. Nothing has worked until now!! I use this product morning and night as my moisturizer. One pump is all I use so I’m assuming the bottle will last me a while (worth the money regardless). I wake up and my my skin is way less red (if even red at all) and my skin looks healthy and CLEAR! I’m telling you, for me , this product has been game changing. I also use Indie Lee Brighting wash and Indie Lee C OQ-10 lotion as my toner. This combo has been amazing.

  • Great for acne prone skin

    Heather December 02, 2019

    This moisturizer is light and absorbes quickly. I like the smell. I’ve already noticed a difference in my skin after a month of using every night.

  • Paired with the cleanser and very happy!

    Stephanie L. November 13, 2019

    I have been using this moisturizer paired with their cleanser (and an Indie Lee toner) for a few months now and I have been very happy! It feels great on my skin and I love the smell. I’m prone to hormonal breakouts and wanted to clean up my skin care routine and am so happy I went with this combo (that was recommended from Follain based on my skin type). Would highly recommend!

  • Great for combination, acne prone skin

    Brittney E. October 02, 2019

    This is the second time I’ve purchased Blemish Balm. I have struggled with combination, acne prone skin since my teens and this is the first lotion that absorbs well and moisturizes at the same time.

  • Great for summer

    Jennifer H. October 02, 2019

    This feels refreshing and light on the skin. I’m wondering if it will be enough for my mid 40’s skin especially this winter.

  • Good Acne Defense, but Needs a Moisture Helper

    Erin P. May 28, 2019

    I really like this stuff for non-harsh chemical acne fighting. I’m almost through my first bottle and since using it religiously as part of my daily regime, I haven’t had a breakout or bad cystic spots. I do use this with a hydrating serum, sunscreen, and sometime a bit of extra moisturizer for my drier spots. I wish this were a bit more moisturizing, as my skin just sucks up moisturizer like a sponge. Overall this would be a great product for someone who doesn’t need a lot of moisture but wants the acne fighting power.

  • Good moisturizer, doesn't do anything for breakouts

    Rachel S. April 29, 2019

    I have a fairly tough time finding a moisturizer that doesn’t make my face feel either too dry or too oily. This is a nice balance if you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizer that’s not drying. BUT, major BUT it has done absolutely nothing for breakouts. Since using it I’ve actually started breaking out more than usual, which blows since this is nearly $50. So for the sake of my bank account I’ll keep using it unless my breakouts go crazy. All in all pretty disappointed that I paid this much for just a lightweight moisturizer.

  • So far so good

    Kayce March 10, 2019

    I’ve been using this product for about a month now. I use it in the AM after cleansing and toner and before makeup. It is super lightweight and doesn’t make your skin feel heavy or greasy at all. Goes great under makeup! It has been helping keeping my acne at bay also which is a plus.

  • Perfect

    Jaana S. March 05, 2019

    this moisturizer works really well for my skin in both the winter and summer. lightweight but moisturizing with good absorption. i’ve repurchased this product many times and likely to continue repurchasing.

  • It works!

    Laura H. December 29, 2018

    I have added this to my night routine after cleansing to moisturize while also keeping my hormonal acne at bay and it has been working! I have been very happy with the results!

  • Tackles pregnancy breakouts

    Olivia W. December 29, 2018

    I’m in my mid 30s and finally “figured out” my skin … and then I got pregnant. Since the start of this little miracle pregnancy, my skin has gone bonkers with tiny red and white pimples all over my face but mostly along the jawline. This blemish balm has been a godsend. It is helping to calm my pregnancy acne and reduce my newfound redness. I still use another moisturizer after this, but if your skin was truly oily, you might be able to use this as your one-and-only moisturizer. I only took off one star because it isn’t a magic cream (what is, really) and it is taking some time to clear everything up.

  • didn't work at all for me, not hydrating enough

    Sophia R. December 28, 2018

    I have combination skin and frequent breakouts but often feel dry. This was not hydrating enough at all, even in the summer, and I didn’t notice any different with my breakouts. And it just didn’t feel satisfyingly hydrating enough at allll to make me want to use it. Maybe would be great for someone with really oily skin, but did not get along with my combination.

  • Smells wonderful, skin feels great!

    Emily C. December 13, 2018

    love the fresh smell of this moisturizer

  • Wonderful

    Kalyn J. December 11, 2018

    I use this product twice a day. I love it. It is moisturizing, but light and not oily. The perfect every-day face lotion.

  • Balm, more like BOMB!

    Sarah B. December 02, 2018

    I’ve been hearing about Osea, everyone LOVES the brand. So, when Follain suggested it for my skin I was a bit skeptical. What’s all the hype? Well, let me tell you it’s all true! This is the ONLY moisturizer that doesn’t leave my face oily at the end of the day. Also, I have super sensitive skin yet this balm does not cause redness, it’s actually calming. The smell is perfection!

  • Love it!

    Sara November 19, 2018

    This stuff might be one of my new grail products. It seems to have settled the oil in my skin and it is healing blemishes I got faster than they would have on their own. I have been using it about two weeks now I guess and I don’t think I will ever be without it. If you don’t like tea tree smell you won’t like it. Also, I do make sure I only use this during the day and I use the Ursa Major Golden Hour cream at night. They seem to balance each other out.

  • Lightweight, but made me break out even more

    Kalie E. November 14, 2018

    This seemed to work at first and was a nice lightweight moisturizer, but for some reason it actually made my breakouts worse over the 2-3 weeks of use. I stopped using and breakouts have gone down. It may just be too drying to use going into winter months.

  • Smells so good !

    Maria D. November 14, 2018

    Love this balm with the ocean mudd cleanser! It’s the perfect duo. Keeps my skin from getting oily all day! I have combination skin and this has been fine even in the colder weather

  • Smells horrible!

    Judie S. November 13, 2018

    I tried this blemish balm cause i wanted another moisturizer and also to keep my face clear of acne. When i put this on my face i couldn’t believe how bad it smells, the other Osea products I tried all smelled really good. I don’t even want to use this balm cause it smells that bad. I tried at night only? But I kept smelling it and i just can’t use it, I’m really disappointed with this one. But love everything else I’ve purchased.

  • Love this moisturizer!

    Laura M. November 12, 2018

    This moisturizer is great. Light and smells super fresh since it has tea tree oil, which also is great for someone prone to breakouts like myself.

  • Reordered after scraping the first bottle clean

    Carly E. October 29, 2018

    Obsessed with this product. Good for summer and winter months. Keep my face blemish free, smooth and tight in a good way. The smell is so relaxing for AM or PM – I love tea tree oil smell and this isn’t overpowering at all! So hydrating and not drying at all even though it helps keep pimples/redness down. LOVE IT !


    Stephani N. October 28, 2018

    Buy this- you won’t regret it

  • Can't Live Without It

    Stephani N. October 28, 2018

    This is magic. I don’t know how I lived without it before the sales consultants at Follain recommended it to me. This has completely rejuvenated my skin; I no longer need prescription acne cream and I never get breakouts.

  • Great

    Zoe October 26, 2018

    Light enough it keeps my skin clear, but moisturizing enough to keep my skin hydrated even during the winter months. Keeps my skin clear and redness at bay.

  • Skin Saver

    Rosemary P. October 11, 2018

    I started using this product in the early Summer, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. This product smells great, and keeps my skin at a perfect oil level all day. A little goes a really long way. I pair it with the eye gel and I swear my face has never looked better!

  • Perfect match!

    Sara S. October 10, 2018

    I’ve been looking for a moisturizer I could use for those monthly break-outs and finally found what I was looking for. It has worked so well with my break-outs and feels so refreshing and hydrating on my skin without the chemical smells or cakey feel I use it everyday. I’m so glad I found this moisturizer! Love it!

  • Feels amazing on skin - holy grial

    Shelby H. September 18, 2018

    Wow, feels Absolutely amazing on the skin, so clean and refreshing without being drying. I can wear under the RMS beauty uncover up and it keeps my skin moisturized without being oily (and I have combination skin prone to breakouts).

  • skin texture is smoother!

    Grace K. August 31, 2018

    I don’t like the smell of this product but it works! I noticed that my skin is much smoother and feels hydrated/plump which helps in my makeup application.

  • My favorite moisturizer

    Clara M. August 24, 2018

    Amazing for acne prone skin but doesn’t dry you out. LOVE this product!!!

  • Super lightweight, tingly, really works

    Meredith M. August 23, 2018

    I use this balm morning (under sunscreen) and night (after toner, before serums) and my skin has never looked clearer. I haven’t had a blemish in months. The scent is nice and minty and my skin feels slightly tingly after I apply (which I love – a former Noxzema convert!)

  • Great Product for Acne Prone Skin

    Ow August 07, 2018

    This is my second purchase of this product and I really love the lightweight feel of this moisturizer, the smell (the eucalyptus/mint scent is very refreshing in the morning). As someone who has acne skin, this moisturizer provides a great balance of hydration for my skin type. I recently bought another OSEA product because I love this product. Worth a try!

  • Amazing!!

    Adriana E. August 02, 2018

    This moisturizer is by far my favorite. The smell is a bit strong but overall it is very lightweight and has tremendously helped my skin

  • Fantastic

    Catherine H. July 30, 2018

    This has helped even my skin so much withstress related breakouts. Easy to apply rubs in smooth and has a nice refreshing feeling to it.

  • a lovely summer moisturizer!

    Anna X. July 30, 2018

    i first tried this balm in-stores and absolutely loved how light it felt. it’s great that this balm has a mattifying effect to it without being drying. i try to steer clear from too-light moisturizers because they always give the illusion of hydration… but leave me with dry skin after. it wasn’t the case with this balm, phew! it’s light yet effective. i use about four pumps for full-face coverage and it keeps my skin happy! the scent is a little overpowering at first, though. it smells almost peppery (yet relaxing?!) and fades in about ten minutes or so. has it helped with keeping blemishes at bay? occasionally, though i still get new ones every now and then.

  • Best Moisturizer ever!

    Christina D. April 20, 2018

    This is a must have product, now that I’ve used it I can’t imagine any other product that is more essential to my skincare routine. It cools and reduces redness. It deeply moisturizes drier areas around my face, I have combination skin and this works awesome for all over my face!

  • I will never use another daytime moisturizer.

    Sophia B. April 04, 2018

    I have oily/acne-prone skin and easily clogged pores. My skin has never been happier since I started using Blemish Balm. It does not irritate my skin at all and never breaks me out. After continued use, I’ve noticed way less frequent breakouts and clogged pores and a significant reduction in oil. This product is amazing!! And it doesn’t dry me out – it is moisturizing and soothing. It gives my skin a plump, healthy, glowing look. It’s not sticky and absorbs quickly. It’s very light and I love the pump bottle. I really will never use another moisturizer during the day – it’s my favorite product of all time.

  • Absolutely love this balm

    Katie S. March 15, 2018

    This is a great balm for everyday moisturizer, especially if you are prone to blemishes every once in a while! It is a light balm that sinks into the skin very quick. It has an awesome fresh smell! Highly recommend.

  • Light and hydrating

    Hannah A. March 13, 2018

    My skin is the epitome of combination. I also struggle with hormonal acne on my chin. I use 3 pumps of this stuff or 2 pumps mixed with my tinted moisturizer and my ski. Stays pretty balanced throughout the day. At night I use 2 pumps of this stuff and then a light layer of the Ursa Major recovery cream which works like a dream to combat acne and also keep my winter skin hydrated!

  • Perfect combination with Cleansing Mudd

    Julia M. February 20, 2018

    I love the smell, which is strong, minty, and herbal, but fades quickly if you don’t like it. Very lightweight but manages to be enough even for my dry patches. In the winter I’m using it combination with an oil but I plan to use it on its own during the summer. Wish it came in a bigger bottle and don’t love the Osea pump packaging, but the contents are so good that it’s ok.

  • This balm works

    Courtney M. February 14, 2018

    I really like this blemish balm. My skin tends to be oily and this moisturizer/balm has kept my skin feeling really balanced. I’ve re-purchased it a couple of times now. If your skin is dry or combination, you may want something thicker or more moisturizing but this is a staple to keep on your shelf. I typically use it daily and think it really helps to keep my skin clear.

  • Does Control Outbreaks!

    Natalie L. September 30, 2017

    This moisturizer does prevent acne, however it still makes me oily 🙁 Because of this, I want to try out a few more moisturizers. However, if you’re skin is not super oily, but prone to acne, this is a good choice. Nice & light. Doesn’t feel heavy at all.

  • Average for my skin.

    Megan S. September 29, 2017

    Overall, it hasn’t been life changing for my skin quality or acne. I probably wouldn’t purchase again. Its not bad, its just, meh. My skin is soft and isn’t drying out or irritated or breaking out any more than usual, but I was hoping for a little more than that.

  • Helps with blemishes

    Sarah L. September 28, 2017

    This stuff smells amazing! I have long battled with bad acne and scarring and while I love this balm, I find it works best when used with the Mud cleanser.

  • Refreshing

    Catherine S. September 28, 2017

    Is this a moisturizer from the gods? My skin has looked so much clearer since I started using this. It doesn’t feel like a pore-clogging concoction of gloopy chemicals, but rather, a light, refreshing layer of moisture that tingles and cleanses. Do note that this is not the knock-out moisturizer- or cream-type product that completely eliminates dry skin. For any dry spots, I’ll still use a traditional moisturizer.

  • Didn't work for me

    Kaitlin B. September 28, 2017

    This wasn’t moisturizing enough for my face, and left it feeling stiff. That being said, it did help with acne.

  • Favorite Summer Time Moisturizer!

    Ashley H. August 16, 2017

    This is the perfect face moisturizer for the summer time! I love the tea tree smell and refreshed feeling after applying to my face and neck. This product has helped keep my skin clear through these sweaty months when your pores might be a bit more clogged than normal. ALL STAR PRODUCT!

  • Favorite moisturizer!

    Kelsey July 28, 2017

    I love the blemish balm because it keeps my skin hydrated without feeling like I have product sitting on my skin (and it smells amazing)! I also love the fact that it works to fight acne without drying out my skin.

  • Made me breakout

    Jenny January 29, 2017

    I wanted to love this product, I have acne prone skin and have had it under control for a long time with only occasional mild breakouts. As soon as I started using this I started breaking out more than I have since I was a teenager. I love the way it smells and feels when you put it on and had high hopes. I continued using it for a while every single day to give it a chance just in case something else was causing my breakouts. Not sure what happened with this product or why it caused my skin to break out but I’m sure this is the culprit as nothing else has changed.

  • Amazing!!!

    Hca June 21, 2016

    The blemish balm is amazing. I bought it in tandem with Osea’s Ocean Cleanser and have had serious improvement in skin. It helped clear up chronic hairline breakouts that I have started to experience for the last year or so. I have been super impressed with the two products of Osea and will not consider Osea my go to.

  • Blemish Balm

    Casi S. April 23, 2016

    The Osea Blemish Balm is absolute magic! It helps to get rid of and prevent blemishes! I use the entire Osea line and every product is amazing!

  • Wonderful

    Kalyn J. November 30, -0001

    I use this product twice a day. I love it. It is moisturizing, but light and not oily. The perfect every-day face lotion.
