Laurel's Balance Serum: Clarifying Relief is a moisturizer, treatment serum, and elemental defense oil, all in one. The lightest facial oil in the Laurel line, its rapid absorption is perfectly suited for skin that is oily or breakout prone. It restores balance to excess oil production, decongests pore build up, and dissolves impurities. As the name implies, it brings harmony and equilibrium to skin’s microbiome while calming and soothing irritation and active breakouts.


+ JOJOBA & SESAME –  Both of these raw, unrefined oils are pressed fresh for Laurel. These carefully chosen lightweight oils restore balance and regulate the skin’s own oil production. Both of these oils also contain a wax very similar to our own barrier’s ceramides, which makes them barrier strengthening and restorative. Jojoba alone has shown the ability to repair a damaged skin barrier in research studies.

+ HELICHRYSUM – Freshly cultivated, harvested and distilled in the Pacific Northwest, this tiny yellow flower is a true skin healer and a potent anti-inflammatory. It is balancing to our microbiome and restorative and strengthening to the skin.

+ CRANBERRY SEED OIL - This lightweight, but incredibly nutrient-dense oil is a perfect fit for oily skin that still needs a high dose of antioxidant content. Cranberry Seed Oil is high in tannins for a seed oil, which makes it ideal for conditions like perioral dermatitis. Cranberry Seed’s unique nutrient profile include Omega’s 3, 6 and 9, resveratrol, phospholipids and phytosterols, which makes this a standout oil for vibrant-aging, as well as inflammatory or acneic conditions.

+ LAVENDER – Laurel's custom distilled California grown Biodynamic® Lavender essential oil is anti-inflammatory, calming, and cooling to the skin. It soothes the nervous system, which is often under duress alongside skin conditions like acne and inflammation. Lavender promotes healthy cell functioning and has a balancing action on both sebum production and the skin’s microbiome.

+ PASSIONFLOWER – This soothing, beautiful flower and vine is farmed locally just for Laurel. It gently promotes detoxification and clear skin, and its astringent action is healing to skin irritations and redness.

Has a warm rosewood scent with notes of orange, lavender and clary sage.

    Works in one use

    I originally got a sample of this for my 13yo daughter to try. She has been struggling with acne and keeping her skin clear, and even though I was reluctant to spend this much on skin care for her, I wanted to find something that would work. Her skin was noticeably clearer after one use. Existing pimples were less red and inflamed, blackheads were gone, everything was smoother and more glowing. I went ahead and bought her the full size bottle, and she has been using it for several weeks now. Aside from breakouts relating to her hormonal cycle, her skin is almost completely clear! It’s really amazing

    Awesome product!

    This serum is light and blends in so nicely. Cleared my skin up and I only use it once a day! Definitely will be purchasing again.

    Left skin dry and inflamed

    For some reason, this batch left my skin dry and exacerbated my breakouts. Laurel normally has great products, but I may have an allergic reaction to their oils. Had to switch to a different oil to calm my skin down.

    Only oil I can use on my face

    This is the lightest, silkiest oil that truly heals acne while nourishing and supporting overall skin health and radiance. Most oils are too heavy and greasy on my sensitive, combination skin. This oil is perfection. I apply it morning and night, after Laurel Elixir II and Earthwise Nap in the Meadow. These three products have stopped my acne in its tracks and has also lightened my hyperpigmentation.

    I'm Impressed

    One of the first oils or serums I've tried that actually balances the skin like it claims to do! I have normal/combo skin, & this serum nourishes my whole face without leaving my forehead an oily mess or the rest of my face lacking in moisture, especially in these winter months. I can't wait to see if it has any noticeable affect on my hyper pigmentation due to acne.
