what does yogurt, kombucha and clear skin all have in common? good-for-you bacteria.

and yes, probiotics can not only help your gut, but keep your skin microbiome in check too.

let’s rewind: the microbiome, which is found under the top layer of dead skin, consists of billions of microorganisms that help form a natural barrier against bad bacteria while managing inflammation and the skin’s pH.

just like your gut, the goal is to have a balanced microbiome. because when it’s not, it can lead to skin issues like acne, rosacea or eczema.

formulated with no fragrance or alcohol, this serum will treat acne, blackheads, and clogged pores without drying out or irritating your skin. in addition to probiotics, not a drill relies on:

1.5% salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid from willow bark, penetrates so deeply into the skin it dissolves skin debris that clog pores, and acts as an anti-inflammatory to reduce red inflamed pimples and pustules.

1% hyaluronic, a sugar molecule, helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated. a must for acne-prone skin, as it typically doesn’t have a very strong lipid barrier.

blueberry & red berry extracts, loaded with vitamins A, C and E, work to promote cell turnover while firming, tightening, and soothing the skin. they also contain resveratrol, which can help keep acne at bay while preventing sun damage and subsequent premature ageing.

no vimto has been used in the making of this serum! I did plan on calling it ‘not vimto’ but was reminded of the potential lawsuits that we can’t afford. instead, not a drill will do. because its effects are seriously not a drill!


aqua, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, vaccinium angustifolium (blueberry) fruit extract, glycerin, sodium lactate, salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, lactobacillus ferment lysate, leuconostoc, hibiscus sabdariffa leaf, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, glycyrrhiza glabra (liquorice) root extract, rosa rubiginosa (rosehips) leaf, ribes nigrum (blackcurrant) fruit extract, vanilla planifolia fruit

how to use

if you’re new to BHAs, use 3 times a week before building up to daily usage. use after your cleanser and toner, and gently pat 2-3 drops of serum onto your skin. use it in the morning and evening.

extra tip: you can also massage it into your scalp to reduce itchiness and gently exfoliate and remove excess buildup, flakes and oil.

Love this!

I ordered quite a lot of things from MBS but this in particular feels like it's been the best thing for my skin. For the first time in a long time I have no active spots and as someone who exfoliates due to oily skin, it feels as though the probiotics are helping to keep my skin barrier healthy and not too stripped down from exfoliation. Definitely going to have a permanent spot in my routine

Love love love!

I have been using made by Sunday products for about 6 months and I think this product is my favourite one. It has cleared up my skin so much and particularly helped my forehead bumps too. Texture is strange but you get used to it. Definitely recommend !!

Actually works!

I applied 2 drops and massaged it on my face. My face and fingers felt sticky! 🫤 But like the cleanser, after a few seconds, the stickiness disappeared and my face felt... (dare I say it?) smooth. 😮
