Birchbox Breakdown

It’s hard to let go of the past, especially when it comes to our skin. From regrettable encounters with the tanning bed (guilty) to whirling dervish zit-popping sessions (also guilty), youthful habits can leave their mark. Luckily, derma e® has stepped in to offer us a clean slate. Designed to knock out dark spots, sun spots, and other stubborn imperfections, this vitamin-packed formula brightens, hydrates, and evens skin tone without any greasy or sticky residue.

How it Works

Despite its heroic strength, this complexion-brightener goes easy on the planet and your skin: It’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, and GMO-free. An antioxidant- and vitamin-rich Intensive Skin Brightening Complex works to banish discoloration and boost skin’s radiance across the board, while caffeine increases circulation and witch hazel quells any lingering irritation.

How to Use

After cleansing skin, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of serum onto fingers and gently massage into face and neck.

Light and not greasy

I had never used a serum before and this was a great start. I generally used it between toner and moisturizer. Really light and definitely made a noticeable difference in my skin within a few weeks.

Skin tone perfector

Love this product along with the eye dark circle cream- the trip sampler is amazing and does wonders when it comes to hydrating the skin and evening my tone.

Very nice!

This line is great for my skin, and I plan on purchasing this product in a full size. My skin tone was more even after, and the cream wasn't greasy at all.

I'll buy it!

I really liked this serum. I have come across a lot of oily, gross, pore clogging serum but this is not one of them. It is light, smells great and I felt the tightness/toning effect it had on my face almost immediately after using it.

Serum Newbie

I wasn't really sure what to think of serum especially since my skin tends to be oily/combination but this stuff is amazing. It has an incredible scent and has made a noticeable difference in my skin tone over the past two weeks. I pat it on under my moisturizer and it feels non-greasy and light. I would highly suggest this product for anyone with discoloration, acne scars, or dark spots.

Takes Years Off!

This product is so awesome! I cannot say enough great things about it. I saw results just after the first use. I'm in my mid-30s and don't have a ton of wrinkles or skin damage, but I can tell a difference. My skin is toned and tight, yet completely soft and moisturized. You will not be sorry if you give this product a try!

Incredible!

From the first day I used this product, I loved it; my skin was brighter and more even in tone. After just two weeks I have noticeably fewer dark spots and I couldn't be happier! I struggle with rosacea, acne scars and sun spots and this product is tackling them all! I don't ever want to be without it. FINALLY something that works.

LOVE THIS!

I absolutely love this serum- I got it in my first birchbox and it is my new favorite serum. I also purchased the facewash and will be purchasing the rest of the line.

Meh, I could take it or leave it

I used this sample for 4 days and I didn't notice any effect. The cleanser before was amazing; the night cream after was great. But this serum didn't seem to do much for me in the short time that I use it. As with the other products, the smell is nice and it goes on lightly, working fine under foundation.

Healthy option

This serum is very thin and at first seems watery however, once you put it on it makes your skin feel baby smooth! It also gives your skin a glowing look and you're guaranteed to get compliments on how healthy your skin looks. Usually my skin is very dry and this is moisturizing without being greasy.
