ETUDE HOUSE: Red Spot Balm Review


I was already losing hope form the red scars on my face. I have them for like 3 months already and I’ve been really sad. They’re very hard to cover with makeup and I would feel really sad about it when I’m at home, seeing my bare skin. I would cry because I felt so ugly, it has really affected my self confidence, I didn’t like it when people stare at my face, I kept on thinking they’re saying mean things about the ugly scars. These are all true, but enough of the drama.

I went to the dermatologist but I think that what they gave me was very harsh for my face because my skin felt so tight, it made my oily skin really dry, and I hate it because using it made the sides of my nose really hurt, it feels like my skin is so thin. I bought this just to try it, not really expecting anything (hopeless, remember?) but I have read a lot of good reviews from this product, so whatever, nothing to lose there, my skin was ugly as it was.(lol, past tense. It changed now!)

 I did not use any of the AC Clinic products other than the Red Spot Balm and the Acne Foam Cleanser which is included in the kit. I also stopped using what the dermatologist gave me so I can guarantee everyone that the results I got are purely just from the two products.

"Formulated with Madecassoside (skin healing agent), Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extracts, AC Clinic Red Spot Balm heals, clarifies and soothes facial trouble spots, Specialized target heals and brightens blemishes with a specialized formula."
Non-Comedogenic & Dermatologist Tested
[Active Ingredients] Madecassoside, Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract.
[Directions] Apply spot treatment directly to acne, pimples and blemishes. Avoid excessive facial rubbing.
[Application Sequence] Foam Cleanser - Toner - Gel Lotion - Red Spot Balm - Pink Powder Spot - Calming Mist

[Volume] 20ml

The Red Spot Balm comes in a small square jar with a round cap. You have the spatula but I thought that getting the product on the sides is kind of hard because the part where you screw the cap is narrow and round and it's wider and square below. (crappy explaining but you’ll see the pics).

It has a medicated smell. I like it because it smells like it’s effective, lol.

It has a balm type consistency (well, it is a balm. stupid me), like those unglossy lip balms on a jar but thicker than that. It's hard to remove from your face, after washing my face so hard, it's still there, but I don't fuss about it because it's really effective.

It does not give stinging sensations or anything, in case you're wondering. No feeling at all.



How does the Red Spot Balm works??? (IN MY EXPERIENCE) It first targets the redness, it will be greatly reduced by just one or a couple of applications. Now underneath those redness are the dark spots, you'll see them after the RSB reduces the redness or makes it disappear. Everyday, you'll see that those dark spots peel off little by little and a lighter skin is revealed and your scars are now healing. Mine is still in the process of healing but I believe that the marks will disappear with constant application.

I know the lighting in the pics are different but you can really see improvements, right? It's easier to conceal it with makeup and I feel better in my bare skin now.

I'll keep using this and I'll update as soon as I get the best or better results. I highly recommend this to anyone who has blemishes from acne. This will help you with redness or dark spots. It really works!


  1. Wow! Now I'm even more convinced to buy this. Good stuff! :D

  2. how much is the kit? i am planning to buy this i am having a bad skin problem too :/ hope this will help me~

  11. it's indeed a good cure for acnes !!! love it lots!!!

  12. Hi, How's the condition of your skin now? Did it totally erase the dark spots?

    I have some bad case of hyperpigmentation lately and I want to give this product a try.

  13. @Rachelle, Hello! The not-so-bad spots are gone now. But the other scars, the worse ones (because of too much peeling of tretinoin)became sunken, just a tiny bit though! :D those areas reddens easily, but I'm really thankful for this product so maybe you should give it a try? :D

  14. Hi, i'm planning to get this soon. But i was curious whether you apply moisturizer when using this balm? if yes, is it before or after the balm? thanks :)

  15. @Ika Maknae, hi! I was new to the skin care thing when I used this so I didn't have any moisturizer. The only product I used along with this is the foam cleanser :D
