I've only recently begun to foray into the realm of serums in order to repair my extremely dry and sensitive skin. After finally having exhausting the Votre Face Serum, I was on a look out for something new as trying out different stuff is essentially the sole key to keeping my skin care regime going. That's when I came across the Juicy Chemistry Frankincense & Hemp Seed, which was previously known as Stop the Spot Acne Control Serum.

Let's see if it managed to win my heart or left me blehh.

Product Description: 

"This serum is a spot-fighting superhero. It is jam-packed with acne-fighting and skin-healing ingredients like jasmine, sandalwood, tea tree, neem, clove, turmeric, peppermint, and frankincense oils. This magical elixir targets infection at its root and also promotes skin rejuvenation. It minimises acne-scars and doesn’t strip moisture from the skin. Spots begone!"

My Experience:

I've been using the Juicy Chemistry Frankincense and Hemp Seed serum for about 2 months now. I apply it post cleansing my face thoroughly every night and let it seep into my skin for approximately 30 secs. I also mix it with my face pack once a week. Because of the color of this serum, it cannot be used during the daytime. 

So did I see any difference in my acne after using it for this long? Erm, I don't know. It does make my complexion even and imbues a natural glow on my face, but I am not sure of their spots and acne reduction claims. However, it does alleviate the redness caused by the marks.

The biggest flaw in this serum is its fragrance- it's way too overpowering even for a tolerant nose like mine. And it lingers around for good 30 mins. Which is why I keep applying it as the last thing before I retire to bed so I don't have to meet anyone with my funny yellow colored skin and crazy strong smell.


  • 100% natural and chemical-free
  • Easily available online
  • Imparts a natural glow to the skin
  • Reduces redness
  • Easily permeable
  • Sturdy dropper 


  • The fragrance. Ugh.
  • Leaves a prominent yellow tint on the skin
  • Not potent enough for recurring acne

Ratings: 3/5

Final Verdict: Juicy Chemistry's Frankincense and Hemp Seed Serum works well in evening out the complexion with its impressive set of natural ingredients. However, for a person with an acne-prone skin, it may fall short in fulfilling their claims.
