MAY 26, 2017
”I had severe acne and this product is a dream come true. I will have the hugest grossest pimple ever and using this will reduce it to a small and not inflamed zit just overnight. For smaller and normal pimples, they completely disappear overnight! This product is a lifesaver and I swear by it. I would recommend it to everyone. I have literally linked it to all my friends telling them to buy it. I just wish they sold it in bigger quantities.”

It works better with smaller pimples. Leave it on overnight and it’s good as gone in the morning. But please don’t use it on giant zits. I used this for a week on a giant zit and I didn’t like the result. The acne itself did not finish its usual cycle (growing an “eye” to popping and then drying to healing and becoming another dark spot then scar) instead, it just stayed in a red (not-so-inflamed-but-you-can-still-notice-it) state that won’t dry, grow, disappear, heal or just die! I suffered another week sporting the giant acne before it finally finished its cycle. I’m going to use this is only for small pimples.18 days ago
I have oily to combination skin (at the moment pretty much just oily because it's so hot and humid) and it likes to break out just like that. I tried this product, in combination with the Bija Trouble Face Wash, the Bija Trouble Toner, and the Bija Trouble Lotion, and now, the Bija Trouble Cica Balm. What I did not expect was that it would work. I am a convert to Korean skincare products (about a year now) and I was so shocked to find that my skin didn't have to dry out or flake or peel in order to get rid of my acne. I haven't been to my dermatologist in almost a year. I am big believer in prevention over cure. I religiously apply my skincare morning and night. This Bija Trouble Essence is the real deal. Now that I don't break out as much, I still use a little to put on areas where I normally do break out, and my skin stays clear. Always check your skin for incipient zits, dab a bit on them, and poof! they will be gone the next day. I hope it never gets discontinued!26 days ago
I am happy finding this product. It really heals your spots immediately. I slept with it on my spots waking up in the morning seeing that my pimples are calmed down, no more swelling. A little bit minty and I like this smell. This reduces big pimples like magic. You will really know that it really works after applying it there's a little tingling sensation on the area. I recommend it to tame pimples. :)about 1 month ago
This helped me lessen my breakouts and dry up my pimples faster. I can see results as early as 24hrs after application! I usually apply this to inflamed pimples (ones that dont have a head yet) and it helpslessen the swelling and sometimes the pimple would just disappear. It’s a little expensive but it’s a great buy!about 2 months ago
I used this for around a week. I had a couple of large pimples that was not resolving so I bought this. After a week of consistent use the pimples stayed the same size but the surface became chapped and started to peel. Pimples did not shrink and they just got irritated more so I stopped using it. Would not recommend for people with dry skin. Different story though for oily skin. I used this on a friend with oily skin. Two days of nightly application got rid of medium sized pimples.3 months ago
calms down sudden apparent breakouts with its torreya seed oil. Get rid of your trouble spots in no time with the Bija trouble spot essence. Use cotton swab to gently apply onto troubled areas. It really helps heal my acne breakouts, it took 4 days to definitely heals the pimple. Best for pre and post acne!4 months ago
