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!
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.

My fav product for dry skin to prevent pimples!!

I use the body oil and I like the products. So far I really like this and it can also be a primer essentially too.
Lisa from United States
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.

I am 59 yrs old and use this moisturizer each and every day (smoothed on once my application of OSEA'S hyaluronic acid serum has dried down). I am not blemish-prone but am sensitive-skinned. This moisturizer is perfection in a bottle.
Mirella from United States
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.
Emily from United States
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.
Chloe from United States
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
MamaToBe830 from Denver, CO
After searching online for something to help my pregnancy-related breakouts that didn't contain harmful chemicals, I stumbled upon the Osea line. I've now become a fan for life! This moisturizer has helped so much. Having dry skin on top of the pregnancy pimples, this stuff manages both well. I love Osea and truly want Ulta to carry their full line.
Megan R. from United States
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!
Jess from NYC
I love the smell of eucalyptus, but this was over the top. It is so powerful. I should have known better than to put something that smells so fragrant on my skin. I put it on and it immediately made my skin BURN. I don't have sensitive skin and this stuff ruined my skin. It is SO drying and irritating. Do yourself a favor and avoid.
Elly from Kansas City
I love Osea products, but I was horrified at the reaction my skin had to this product. Intensely irritated skin, including itching and painful skin?! Red and irritated + dry flaking skin, skin looked seriously aged overnight as it healed. My skin has never reacted to products like this before. I think it must be the essential oils?
Melinda from United States
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!!

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!
Joni from United States
I love applying this cream on my face after I was it, besides smelling so great, it moisturizes without your face feeling greasy.
Anna from United States
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.

I use just before bed each night. Just clear skin the next morning. Awesome!
Jillian from United States
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!
Ami from United States
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.
Kelsey from United States
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.
Randi G. from United States
Lightweight moisturizer that doesn't irritate my skin. And it smells AMAZING!!
Lauren from United States
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!
Jenn from St. Pete, FL
This changed the game for me! I use during the day over OSEA's Brightening Serum, and at night blended with their Essential Corrective Complex oil. My skin is so much clearer and glows! The aroma perks me up and smells so clean and healing too. LOVE!
Nancy H. from United States
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 !
L from United States
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").
Cara V. from United States
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 :)
