Birchbox Breakdown

Bring it on, zoom lens! With a little help from our friend dr. brandt®, we’re more than ready for our close-up. This Birchbox-exclusive Camera-Ready Kit includes all the essentials to help you perfect your complexion at the micro-level: deluxe mini versions of Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, Crease Release® with GABA & 3-D Lift, and Glow Revitalizing Retinol Eye Cream, plus a full-size Pores No More® Pore Refiner. The foursome responsible for your flawless, radiant finish comes complete with silver makeup bag and a pocket mirror with a very appropriate #nofilter on the back.

How it Works

Say hello to your celeb derm-developed skincare dream team. The paraben-free Pores No More® Pore Refiner uses tea tree and flaxseed extract to minimize the appearance of pores while microspheres absorb excess oil, leaving a smooth, shine-free finish. Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, designed to mimic in-office derm treatments, gently buffs away dead skin cells and improves texture while it soothes, softens, and refreshes newly exposed skin. Crease Release® with GABA & 3-D Lift instantly tightens and plumps skin while delivering long-term antiaging benefits. Glow Revitalizing Retinol Eye Cream illuminates, hydrates, and smooths the eye area with a time-released (read: gentle) retinol formula.

How to Use

Morning and night, after cleansing, pat a small amount of Crease Release® with GABA & 3-D Lift onto areas of concern (like crow’s feet and between brows and forehead). Then use your ring finger to apply the Glow Revitalizing Retinol Eye Cream on the orbital of the eye contour, from the outside corner of the eye inward. After completing your morning regimen, work a thin layer of the Pores No More® Pore Refiner onto face, paying special attention to cheeks and the tip of your nose. Once or twice a week, apply a quarter-sized amount of the Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant to damp skin and gently massage in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse. Note: Let skin rest for three days between treatments. Toss them all in your silver makeup bag for camera-ready skin on the go—and don’t forget your one-sided mirror so you can check out your gorgeous self sans filter.

The products really felt amazing on my face. So soft, not oily, truly lasted all day.

Effective Pore Minimizer
Sampled

I have been hoping to receive this product in my Birchbox for months! Although it did not keep my skin matte ALL day, it did go on very smoothly and created a soft and velvety base for the rest of my makeup. I love that this product is lightweight and still gets the job done!

smooth

This product glided on smoothly. It seemed to make my pores less noticeable. I liked how I could put in on both under and over my makeup.

Pore refiner
Sampled

The pore refiner went on smoothly and did an okay job of making my face appear smoother but it wasn't great. I don't feel like it was any better than other primers that I have used.

Perfect

This goes on like silk and truly diminishes the look of pores. Goes well over blemishes as well. I couldn't believe how soft it made my skin feel!

Fine but not great

It didn't make my face oily or greasy but I didn't notice it helping my skin either.

Nice- great texture

Very nice- made my complexion look great. I'd still need some coverage, but I especially loved the matte finish of this. Really made my skin look great and enhanced my natural look. Probably will buy if I think about it later.

I really liked this and made my skin feel very soft. I would use this if I didn't already own a similar product.

hides not minimize
Sampled

I feel like this hides my pores a little but they are still pretty not able. I already had a sample of this and didn't like it at all initially. You need to at it in not just rub. It's ok except on my nose my pores are more noticeable.
