Serious Skincare®

Birchbox Breakdown

After a long day (so, pretty much every day), you need an evening skincare regimen that’s quick and easy, but still produces amazing results. Well, we’ve got a skin-saver and time-saver for you. This renewing serum, formulated with 9.8 percent glycolic acid and a bevy of natural fruit extracts, improves texture and tone—all while you’re getting some much-needed shuteye. They don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing.

How it Works

Glycolic acid and other alpha-hydroxy acids penetrate the skin and weaken the lipids that contribute to the build up of dead skin cells. In nongeek speak, that means you’re skin will look brighter—over night. Lavender oil has antiseptic and antifungal properties that keep bacteria in check, while lemon extract evens skin color, tackling dark spots and blotchiness. Coffee extract gives skin a boost (without keep you up all night), while grape seed extract protects against free radical damage.

How to Use

At night, apply a thin, even layer to cleansed face and neck. Let absorb before applying moisturizer.
