Try the Brightening Cleanser, a 1.8% salicyclic acid wash that blocks oil and seals in moisture.

DDF®

Birchbox Breakdown

This genre-bending serum uses a patented dual-phase technology to give skin double the benefits. Like a topnotch primer, it instantly hydrates skin, shrinks pores, and masks flaws. At the same time, the peptide-packed formula exfoliates and repairs skin cells for lasting anti-aging benefits. Plus, the double helix style tube is pretty nifty.

How it Works

This super serum attacks your skin’s appearance with a two-pronged strategy. First, light-refracting microparticles in the colored swirl immediately fill pores and wrinkles for a smoother overall look. Second, vitamins B3, B5, E, glycerin and advanced amino peptides in the translucent gel hydrate and regenerate the skin’s surface — all within the first week of use.

How to Use

Using clean fingertips, apply one pump to your face and neck every morning after cleansing. It soaks in instantly so your skin is primed and ready. Follow with SPF and makeup or wear alone for an on-trend fresh faced look.

I CANNOT get enough of this product! I have oily, mature skin and this product has been my savior! No oily residue prior to applying foundation nor a need to apply moisturizer! A bit pricey but think about the time & money saved. I am a fan!

Initially I really liked this when I got it in my birchbox because it made my skin feel super soft. However the more I used it the more my skin broke out. Given the price, this was rather unfortunate!

Light and soft

I really liked how this product soaked into my skin and gave it a soft, smooth finish. I felt like the product lasted a long time and a little went a long way. I think it did the job, but I was looking for more amazing results.

Pretty Spectacular

I've been wanting to find some gentle anti-aging product to start using preventatively since I'm still in my twenties, but I've always been a bit intimidated. I put off using this product when I got the sample in my Birchbox months ago, as I was using an acne treatment and didn't want to overwhelm my skin. I have been using it over the past two weeks and I love it. I love it so much, I think I'm going to budget to get a whole tube when I run out. It has been dreadfully humid where I live, and my workplace air conditioner is less than reliable. I like to wear just a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer when the weather gets like this, but it isn't always enough on its own to properly hydrate my skin. However, using my usual moisturizer + primer+ foundation routine in this heat is just not an option. This product actually does everything it says. It is the PERFECT hydration for my situation, absorbing quickly and giving the skin an overall smoothing effect. What's more, I've definitely noticed positive changes in my skin's elasticity and tone. It is pricey, but I find it to be definitely worth it. I don't know if I've ever had a product work as well as this one.

Perfect but pricey

This is my absolute favorite. I have mixed skin - can get very dry in the winter, but also has a tendency to be oily. Lucky me. This product really moisturized my skin without any heaviness and never felt shiny or greasy. This is a wonderful product. I wish it was a little less expensive, I am not sure I could afford to use it regularly.

A new staple
SampledPurchased

I wasn't sure how much I loved this product until I stopped using it. It makes my skin look great! I tend to have oily skin so I used more of the product during my night time routine and only used a half a pump in the morning. I love it and the packaging is great!

Vitamin E

I loved getting the sample of this Serum. It feels just like the vitamin E capsules. It super light, and smells amazing, and although I only had a sample size, I could tell a difference in the softness of my skin after using it consistently for a few weeks!
