LA'BONIC Organic Sebum-Balancing Serum

I really wanted to love this product… I used it religiously for 4 weeks, every morning and any time I was about to put on my make up. But to be honest… I wasn’t all that impressed. Yes the serum was lovely and gentle on the skin, yes it helped with redness and irritation, but did it help with oil control? I found it to do the exact opposite – increasing the oil on my face.

Admittedly, this could be due to a number of factors, with the key one being that it is now winter and skin is exposed to colder air and therefore dries out faster so is less in need of oil control, and by introducing oil control it creates more for compensation…

Whichever way you look at it, I found I needed to put on a thicker layer of moisturizer to make it work and let it absorb thoroughly before applying make up. I also had to ensure I had pressed powder on hand to deal with any shininess.

I would say if you’re having major oil problems, give it a try, but if you’re right on the cusp, if you have mixed patches of skin, just stick to a great cleansing routine and give this serum a miss.


LA'BONIC Organic Sebum-Balancing Serum contains 96% Certified Organic Ingredients. Specially designed to balance moisture and oil levels, this gentle organic serum reduces redness and irritation as it hydrates.
