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.

Pore refiner is great

Love the pore refiner. Goes on easy with a little color. Smells minty and makes skin tingly (in a good way).

Hides Pores Well

This product did a good job of concealing my pores and it made my skin appear to be more even under my make-up. It has an oddly minty smell and it almost feels cool when I put it on my skin, however I actually love this aspect of it. I use a similar pore concealer that I will probably stick with due to the price, but this one is fantastic nonetheless. Definitely worth a shot!

Wow - Pores No More

This is an awesome product for 30+ ladies who have problem pores and/or acne. This cream covered my gross spots and offered me an oil-free finish. I mixed it with my BB for a little more coverage. Awesome!

Good product

I received the mattifying pore reducer sample in my box. I really like using it as part of my morning beauty routine and I use it for a touch up if I go out after work. The cream itself is light and doesn't feel gooey or sticky. It blends into my skin really well and I really like the mattifying effect. The full-size product is a little pricey for me, but overall, I really like this product.

Love the Pore Refiner.

I see an instant visual difference in my pores, as well as acne scars, as soon as I put it on.

Great product!

I only received the pore minimizer in my sample box, so I can't speak to the rest of the products in the camera-ready kit. But what I did get was great! It made my makeup go on nice and smooth, and let me focus on a small problem area as opposed to having to use it on my entire face. Would definitely buy!

effective

did it's job of minimizing pores well and the texture was velvety smooth which I enjoyed. It said that it could be used under or over makeup which is pretty versatile and I liked that too. Smell was pleasant and not overwhelming.
