Does clear skin feel like a distant dream? I believe you are reading it because you know the struggle of sore blemishes, visible pores, and an oily t-zone. You feel like stuck. Thankfully somebody created a beauty product - a serum that is thoroughly like a shot of vodka for your face - powerful, effective and quick-acting. It's loaded with active ingredients that address specific skin concerns. I emptied two bottles of Resibo Balancing Serum, Oil Control + Imperfections and my results were too good not to share. Let's start then!
Resibo is a Polish brand that conquered the market. Its main aim is to create products that take care of skin in a natural way. The brand was born out of friendship, love and magic. It means Resibo is 100% honest with customers, and it produces an effective, vegan cosmetics using the latest technology and the power of nature. It’s simple: nature and effectiveness. Their keynote is the idea that beauty product should be the same for the skin as a healthy diet is for the body. Moreover, the brand is eco friendly. Not only their method of obtaining raw materials for products is safe for the environment but also the packaging is largely biodegradable.

Magical ingredient - Nelupure™
It is an ecological ingredient that is obtained from two varieties of a lotus - Egyptian blue lotus and Indian nut lotus. It gained popularity thanks to the high efficiency in reducing oily and shiny skin and the formation of skin eruptions. Moreover, it regulates the activity of the sebaceous glands from the inside, inhibiting the excessive production of sebum and the formation of blackheads. Not only it makes our skin matte, but also it restores the skin's comfort and a feeling of freshness.
Which skin types benefit from this serum
Serum was created for the people whose skin is prone to:
overproduction of sebum
I believe the product is beneficial for everybody because the surprise on the forehead may appear unexpectedly. As they say - forewarned is forearmed.
How to use it
What producer says
Squeeze four drops of the serum into your hands. Apply it on your face and pat gently. Wait a few minutes so that other products do not weaken the effect of the serum. Then pat the cream. You can only use it on the T-zone if you have combination skin. The serum can also be used in spots. Make sure you use it during your evening skincare routine, after cleansing face. It can also be used during the day if needed. Remember to apply the right cream. You will see the first effects of taming the overproduction of sebum after a few days of use.
How I use it
On a daily basis:
morning skincare routine: face wash gel, toner, serum, moisturiser, spf.
evening skincare routine: face wash gel, toner, serum, calming sleeping mask.
On the weekly basis:
I use it every day, however I noticed the best results when I follow these steps during my evening skincare routine: face wash gel, enzyme peeling, mask, toner, serum, moisturiser.
Make sure you wait a few minutes before you jump to the next step of your skincare routine. Serum needs some time to be fully drunk by the skin.
The serum is stored in a glass, aesthetic bottle. The capacity is 30ml. You need to press the bottle at the bottom in order to squeeze a couple of drops. I have never seen this kind of solution and really like it! It definitely makes the application easier. Also, 4 drops of the serum are needed to cover the whole face (I use 5 drops as I cover my neck as well). I would say the serum is moderately efficient.
This is my opinion after using 2 bottles of Resibo Balacing Serum, Oil Control + Imperfections.
I truly believe in the power of nature, hence I've chosen this serum. I've had such high expectations because of the composition of the ingredients that is impressive. Also, I was encouraged by the consistency of the serum that is very light. It has a form of a milky lotion/emulsion. It is absorbed almost instantly, however, make sure you wait a few minutes before you apply the cream on the top of it. I also really like the fact that it does not leave an oily, sticky layer on the skin.
Firstly, I didn't believe the producer who claims that the first results will be visible after a few days. I couldn't be more wrong as after a week the sebum production slowed down. It made the product even more promising! Nothing is more annoying than waiting for the results for ages right? After a month of using serum I also noticed that not only my skin is significantly tightened, and skin pores visibility is reduced but also the function of sebaceous glands is regulated and the shine of my skin is reduced. All of the great results without any irritation. It leaves the skin perfectly clean, fresh and matte. And the most important, I definitely have fewer surprises on my skin, which is the best benefit of this serum. However I am not sure whether it's due to pregnancy hormones or this product. Let's share the credit halfway!
There are 2 things I don't like about this product. Sometimes I forget to apply moisturiser on the top of it, so my skin gets too tighten and dry. However, I can say it's my fault. No doubts, I should remember about applying moisturiser. Also, I'd prefer it's sold in a larger bottle. I feel like 30ml runs out too soon and it's time to order a new bottle. (This blog post let me remember I am running out of my third bottle!)

Do I need to apply it to the whole face?

Sure, the serum works great under makeup. It smoothes the skin, reduces glare and gently tightens it.
Is it comedogenic?
No, Resibo excludes comedogenic ingredients in all of their products.
Can the serum replace creams and other products?
Due to the recommended method of use, it does not replace other beauty products. The serum works better while used with other products. The serum is best suited for strengthening the existing care that is tailored to your needs, rather than replacing it. If you like minimalistic skincare, it's best to use it with moisturiser.
