Grand Central Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

Listen up, foodies! If your makeup routine were sandwich, then this formula would be the bread. This antiaging serum works to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and can also be used to even out the texture of your face to create a smooth canvas for your daily coverage (foundation, BB cream, and the like). Once you’re finished, a quick pat of this product over makeup sets your look for the day—so you can get to more important things, like real sandwiches.

How it Works

Sharing in the tradition of all Grand Central Beauty products, this combo serum and primer works to condition skin, soothe irritation-induced redness, and fight the signs of aging. Using a team of paraben- and sulfate-free ingredients, the quick-absorbing formula minimizes fine lines and effectively preps skin for your daily moisturizer and makeup routine.

How to Use

Smooth evenly onto clean skin before applying makeup, patting around the eye area. (For drier complexions, follow immediately with a moisturizer.) To set your look, rub a small amount onto your palms and pat onto your finished face.

Love this stuff
Purchased

This serum is so amazing. I use this morning and night. My face feels so great after wearing it. I really like that it's very light weight and not a thick serum. It has a very thin, silky texture when putting it on. There is no smell which is great too.

Not for Me
Sampled

This didn't really meet my expectations and I don't really need a product like this right now. A little bit goes a long way with it. If you use too much, your skin will appear oily.

Not fragrance free

I did not enjoy the scent of this serum, plus I try to stay away from skin care products with fragrance in them.

Excellent Product, Just Pricy

Like the product couldn't see huge results front just the sample. I don't think I would spend the money for the full product.

Awesome primer!
Sampled

This primer was actually the first primer I ever used on my face! And it set the bad very high. It makes your skin feel amazing and your make up last the day.

Great For Under Eye
Sampled

I only use this under my eyes, so the sample has lasted about two months so far. I have fine lines (not wrinkles, though) under my eyes that concealer settles in. When I am using this primer, my concealer goes on smoothly and even after all day wear does not settle into my lines. It's the only product I have found to help this.
