Balance hyaluronic youth serum. Spots, anyone?

So I have been using this serum after following the quiche thread. It was going ok and I noticed an improvement to my skin. Then I did a facial peel.
Now my skin is hideously spotty. So it's either the serum or the peel.
Anyone experienced bad outbreaks after trying these things?

No spots but makes my skin feel dry and rough.

The serum or the peels?

No one?

I use the serum and haven't had any reactions , maybe it was the peel that made you break out

Anything with hyaluronic acid in it makes me break out in spots. So disappointing when the beauty world sings it's praises so much.

That said, it was pretty instant so overnight rather than a few days. I'd wait a couple of weeks then try the serum again without doing a peel, see what happens.

Yes the serum made me break out too. I now use it on my neck and chest to use it up. I'm cheap like that I hate not finishing a product.

I've been using it for 2/3 weeks and my chin has just got particularly spotty. I thought it might be hormonal but perhaps it's this.

Ahh, thank you.
I did use a different serum a while ago. It was AMAZING my skin looked visibly tighter and even my husband noticed. But then I got lots of under the skin spots. I looked at the ebay reviews and it seemed to be a common problem
I was hoping this one wouldn't do that. But, siiiiiigh!
I bet it's that.
