Serious Skincare®

Birchbox Breakdown

A good cleanser is the backbone of any skincare regimen—but every now and then, your skin needs a deeper cleaning. Enter this supereffective exfoliating mask. It draws out impurities, sloughs off dead skin cells, and tightens skin tone in less time than it takes to watch an episode of Girls.

How it Works

Glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that penetrates the skin and weakens the lipids that contribute to the build up of dead skin cells, teams up exfoliating malic acid, as well as phytic acid, which reduces hyperpigmentation and inflammation, and lactic acid, which tackles acne. Essential oils—including olive oil, sweet almond oil, and lemon oil—moisturize and balance skin tone.

How to Use

Apply an even layer to cleansed face and neck, then let dry (it takes about 10 minutes). Using damp fingers and rewetting as necessary, massage into face to exfoliate. Rinse thoroughly or use a damp washcloth to remove product completely.

Seriously a must have!

Love this mask. It feels great and is perfect for my sensitive skin. No weird smells or flakiness after use. Perfection in a tube.

Great!

Normally, I do not spend time on face masks but I tried Serious Skincare's and loved it! My skin is sensitive but it wasn't irritated by this product. My skin was soft and all my pores were dirt free!

Left my face soft, and vibrant. The texture was soft like Caribbean sand and the slight minty smell made this product feel very spa-like and high end.

Every gal in their 30's secret weapon

I am 30 and keep getting caught up in the mirror staring at how my skin is changing...... My pores are getting bigger and my skin tone is awful. I wish I would have never stepped into a tanning salon 10 years ago if i knew what it would have done to my skin today. I received this sample a couple months ago and used it once put it on the shelf and never really took note of how amazing it really is..... these past couple weeks i have been using it once a week and it is changing my skin!!!! The day after i use it my skin is completely different, my pores are smaller and i can go with out bb cream. This is a really amazing scrub/mask or whatever you wanna call it. All i know is as soon as my sample runs out I am going to buy the full size!!!

This is AWESOME

I know what you're all thinking - that this product is way too spendy. I tried this product when my friend (who's also a Birchbox subscriber) gave it to me. It is so awesome!

I typically exfoliate with the Anew line of glycolic acid pads from Avon, but I'm going to be ordering this as an alternative. It's not that this one is better than the Anew, just a different experience. The mud-like texture of the product spreads a lot better than you think it would, and is not hard to get out of the tube. WONDERFUL tingly feeling that makes you know it's working. Not just a superficial menthol tingle - you can tell the glycolic acid is working hard to get all the dry bits off. Dried in only 10 minutes, and then when you add water to wash it off it turns into a lovely fine-grained scrub for added exfoliation. I was so soft after I used it! My skin looked sooooo much better and clearer the next day as well. I'm usually a skeptic and I just cannot believe I love this product so much. Seriously. BUY IT!

Great Cleanser for Occasional Use

I really like this brand. I have extremely sensitive skin and found that I can use this exfoliating mask about once a week to remove any build up (dead skin cells). It leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and fresh!

Glowing Skin!

I have incredibly dry skin that gets red and flaky. This product is wonderful. It takes away my redness and leaves it silky smooth and flake free. It literally glows!

Like it

I love this as a scrub dont use it to much cause it seems a little harsh, but works very well. Did not see much difference using as a mask.

Not what I expected.

After reading lots of reviews I was excited to try this but with my sensitive skin this product is just way to harsh for me. Doubtful I will purchase this again.
