Misbehaving Face Serum : Acne + Oil Balancing + Anti-Inflammatory + Essential Oil Serum | Misbehaving Face Serum is one of my OG :) products, the very first serum I ever formulated, and continues to be a best seller. It is all things herbal and magical in one bottle, smelling of something you can't quite put your finger on with a blend of earthy Hemp Seed Oil and a trace of almost minty Sweet Birch. If a gypsy traveled the world to gather ingredients to make you a serum, this would be what she came up with ;) trust me! Carefully blended to be gentle, but effective, this serum can be used twice daily on your face + chest + body!
I had acne most of my life and after trying literally everything and bleaching every towel my Mother owned, I started crafting something for myself. Over the years, the recipe has been honed to only contain oils perfect for sensitive and acne-prone skin, as well as non-sensitizing essential oils. Beyond that, we offer several versions, one for those sensitive to essential oils or preganat/nursing (LIGHT.) LIGHT is also ideal for teens. One with just a touch of natural BHA. (MISBEHAVING.) and one with gentle added AHA fruit acids for added exfoliation and glow. Whichever strength you choose, you can be sure your skin will thank you!
Organic Hemp Seed Oil helps gently nourish + unclog pores + reduce redness + calm irritation + and so much more. The proprietary essential oil blend addresses acne holistically, to address multiple types of acne and other skin concerns.
I also offer a version with no essential oils, as well as a new HIGH FIVE | MISBEHAVING SKIN FACIAL OIL.
Not just for acne. anyone with skin that just misbehaves.
A bit about the essential oil blend. http://bearsbeauty.blogspot.com/2018/03/misbehaving-skin-what-it-is-to-bears.html
CHOOSING THE RIGHT BEAR'S ACNE SOLUTION
Naked Misbehaving Face Serum : The most sensitive of the sensitive, very minimal breakouts, teens, tweens, mature sensitive skin with acne. This is a great place to start, especially if you are nervous about using oil or essential oils on your skin. Safe for AM + PM use.
Misbehaving Face Serum : This is my original acne serum and over the last several years, has benefited many many skin types and acne issues. This serum was what cleared my skin, and is my go-to for anyone who asks me what to try for acne. Made to be used alone or with other Bear's products. Safe for AM + PM use.
Extra Strength Misbehaving Face Serum : All the benefits of our Original Misbhaving Face Serum, but with added fruit-based AHA and Willow Bark BHA. AHA helps encourage smoother skin, can speed cell turnover, and reduce the appearance of acne, scars, and fine lines. BHA helps break down the gunk in your pore. Use PM only, AHA should be used at night and along with SPF as it can make you more prone to sunburn.
Start with Misbehaving Face Serum unless you know you have very sensitive skin when it comes to essential oils or trying new things, then go with Naked.
Bear's Beauty products are not made for specific skin types, but for specific skin issues and concerns. I formulate every product with truly sensitive + acne-prone skin in mind. No comedogenic oils (like Virgin Coconut or Sweet Almond) and no Coconut-based Emulsifying Waxes.
Acne + Active Breakouts + Pimples
Hormonal Acne + Adult Acne + Teen Acne
Excess Oil + Clogged Pores + Blackheads
Any kind of breakouts: hormonal, cystic, teenage, or otherwise, TRY THIS!
This plays well with others, while I do think it is best to use only natural products, you can add this serum to any routine you are already using.
The true difference, and what you are paying for, is the actives and the quality of said actives. Lots of companies use natural ingredients, but they don't use Food-Grade or Organic oils. They also do not use 100% actives. Most products contain 75-95% water and only a small portion of beneficial ingredients. This serum is all active and every single drop benefits your skin. These products aren't like any other and they work along with your skin like no other. They are also versatile enough to be mixed in with other serums and oils that you enjoy.
AT A GLANCE
Unlike most Acne Serums on the market, this oil-based serum will not dry your skin out or leave you flaky.
Antibacterial + Anti Inflammatory + Calming + Anti Redness + Balance Oil Production
Just Botanical + Essential Oils
Years of positive reviews
HOW DOES THIS COMPARE WITH OTHER BEAR'S BEAUTY PRODUCTS? WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
I have quite a few products for Acne + Breakouts + Post Acne, especially geared toward Sensitive Skin. This serum was the start of it all. This was one of my very first products, over the years it has been refined, but it is still my favorite.
Misbehaving Face Serum is ideal for a host of skin concerns, if you have any concern as well as acne, this is the serum for you.
If you happen to have sensitivities to Hemp + Sunflower or one of the other carrier oils, then you want the Naked Misbehaving Face Serum, made with a base of just Red Raspberry Seed Oil.
For Post-Acne use this serum Am and the Night + Acne + Scar Serum at night.

☛☛When you first start using this serum, there may be a slight detox phase. The oils in this serum thin sebum and bring clogged pores to the surface. Regular, GENTLE, exfoliation will help speed this process along. Please be aware, part of this serum's job is to decongest your skin. While you may not see it, you have clogged pores that have not reached the surface. This serum will help soften those clogs, bring them to the surface, and then break them down. If you get a few (less than ten) small bumps or whiteheads, do not panic. Just keep using the serum AM + PM and make sure you are exfoliating every few days. After 1-2 weeks, any detox should be done, assuming you are not using a product that is re-clogging your pores. Lotion, primer, and even makeup can be the culprit. If you keep clogging your pores, this will keep bringing them to the surface, An allergy to this would manifest as redness, itching, small bumps that feel like texture, or inflammation. Always check with a physician, and patch test. Essentially, give your skin at least two weeks to adjust before you make a decision about this serum :)

WHAT RESULTS TO EXPECT
I am not selling magical solutions, all of these remedies take time to work. They all act by supporting the natural processes of your body. There is no set timeline for results. There are so many factors that play a role in the efficacy of a product, down to how much water your drink and how stressed you are.
That being said, I can offer some information I have gathered from my own and other customer's experiences.
Depending on the severity of your acne, this one product may address the issue. I had results within a week, and many customers report softer + smoother skin right away.
Over time, breakouts + redness + irritation is reduced.

"I did not review this when I first received it because I wanted to try it first to give an honest review. AMAZING! I have tried every product out there. After less than a week of using this and my face is almost completely clear. Will definitely buy again." - Customer Review
"Wonderful product! A little goes a long way and it smells amazing too. I'm 46 and have rosacea. I've been been searching for an all natural "calming" product. After about a minute of applying this healing serum to my face for the first time, the redness diminished to at least half. I've been using this product for almost 2 weeks now and the redness continues to diminish. My daughter commented how awesome my skin is looking. : ) I really like what I see in the overall feel and appearance of my skin. Look forward to trying your other products! Thank you forever!"

Many items are composed of delicate floral waters and botanical oils. Keeping your items in the fridge and away from direct light will greatly extend the life of the product. This is especially true for Hydrosols + Cremes + Cold Creams + Sprays + Butters (in the summer they may become liquid) + Coconut (Coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees) + Cremes. I use Radish Root Ferment, a widely used natural preservative, but keeping your items cool + away from light will give you more time to use + love them. Oil-based serums should be stored away from direct light and refrigerated if you will not use within 4 months.
