For oily skin types, this product acts as a wonderful standalone moisturizer. For the drier folk, use this serum under derma e® Soothing Moisturizing Crème with Pycnogenol®.

Birchbox Breakdown

The trademark mole on your cheek à la Cindy Crawford? Gorgeous. The freckles you got during 5th grade summer camp? Adorable. The redness on your cheeks? You’re not quite as enamored. For a hydrating fragrance-free way to calm our skin, we reach for derma e®’s Soothing Serum with Pycnogenol®. The antioxidant-packed formula gives skin the order to keep calm and glow on.

How it Works

A special powerhouse antioxidant, Pycnogenol®, reduces redness, blotchiness, and irritation while alleviating skin discomfort. A blend of botanicals—including olive and calendula—calm flare-ups, while special hydrators restore skin’s elasticity. Works great for rosacea-sufferers too. This formula is 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free.

not made for dry skin
Purchased

The more I use this, the less I like it. It doesn't feel very moisturizing when I put it on and my skin still feels tight after applying it. I don't think it has enough moisture for my dry skin.

Great serum!

I liked the sample of this product and ended up ordering the full size. I have sensitive skin and rosasea and this product does help calm the redness.

Soothing relief
Purchased

This serum relieves sensitive and irritated skin. It also diminishes redness and splotchiness within minutes. I use this to calm my rosacea skin. Fresh and non sticky. Absorbs quickly into the skin. I use this morning and night when I'm in need and use it occassionally when my skin is behaving.

Love!

This is the best birchbox product I've received thus far. I will definitely purchase a full size, it makes my face look absolutely flawless, I put it on before makeup as a moisturizer and it makes my skin look amazing, which is hard to do since I have acne prone skin.

Amazing Product!!
Purchased

I have really sensitive combination skin bordering on mostly dry skin. I use this serum as an all over moisurizer because it is non greasy, and also keeps my skin firm. It helps with redness and clears any flare ups as well! Its definetly worth the price since you only use a dime size and it does so much. LOVE!!!

Unique

The second step in the process is soothing and cooling. I liked it a lot and would use it again. A nice alternative to abrasive brands you find in discount stores.

not too special

I didn't really get a lot from this product sample..I have sensitive skin so it is hard for me to find mild products

It felt calming.

I've recently turned 28 and have been contemplating starting an anti aging facial regimen. Here came this sample! My face felt very soft after trying the cleanser, serum, & moisturizer samples over night & in the morning before applying makeup.
