Control Corrective

Birchbox Breakdown

We’re constantly on a quest for balance, whether that's between work and life, social time and gym visits, or indulgent dinners and juice cleanses. Conclusion: finding this so-called balance isn’t so easy. As far as our skincare is concerned, however, this daily-use kit has us covered. The high-performance, antioxidant-rich products—including a cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer—normalize skin to reveal a healthy, radiant glow.

How it Works

The aloe vera-based Gentle Facial Wash turns from gel to foam to rinse away oil, dirt, and makeup, perfectly prepping skin for the set’s other treatments. Botanically enriched with aloe vera, the Balancing Tonic hydrates as it protects skin from environmental stressors and harmful bacteria. Amino acids help repair the skin’s pH balance while reducing inflammation and removing impurities. For a healthy glow, Cyrstal C Serum gives dull complexions a perk with its vitamin C and aloe vera (notice a trend here?) blend. The antioxidant-rich ingredients help downgrade any inflammation. As a final protective barrier, Ceramide Daily Cream fortifies the skin’s lipid barrier to lock in moisture. The lightweight cream boasts vitamins A and E to fight free radicals and lend a luminous luster. For use on all skin types.

How to Use

Massage a quarter-sized amount of Gentle Facial Wash into damp face for about 30 seconds and rinse. After cleansing, soak a cotton ball or pad in the Balancing Tonic and sweep over face and neck in smooth strokes. Then dab a thin layer of Crystal C Serum all over to amp up radiance. Once the serum has been absorbed, massage a quarter-sized amount of Ceramide Daily Cream into face and neck.
