Serious Skincare®

Birchbox Breakdown

We get it: Late nights at the office, followed by a glass (or two) of wine with friends, translate to many a night going to sleep with your makeup still on. Your evening skincare regimen needs a wake-up call! Enter this skin-saving cream, made with 9.8 percent glycolic acid and a bevy of natural fruit extracts. It improves texture and tone, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and gives your skin a healthy glow—all while you’re getting your beauty sleep.

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, massage a generous amount into face and neck—then get some shuteye.

Not moisturizing enough for dry skin

I bought this for the 'healthy glow' claim but the gel-like formula is not moisturizing for dry skin; thus, no glow. I prefer a night cream that is a more substantial. It does seem to have brightening effect on my dark spots yet I would not buy again. The jar uses too much plastic which another reviewer also mentioned she did not like.

Better after one use

I had second thoughts after purchasing this that it would be too harsh for my skin. It wasn't. I woke up with smooth fresh skin. Definitely looking forward to seeing what long term results I get from this. On a picky note the jar is huge for 2 oz. Seems like a waste of plastic.
