Birchbox Breakdown

Anyone who’s suffered from chapped cheeks or painful redness after using a rough facial scrub knows that not all exfoliators are created equal. This powerful microdermabrasion treatment instantly brightens all skin types by gently buffing away dead skin cells, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath. Over time, it even reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and discoloration. The best part? No appointment-making hassle or big spend necessary: The exfoliant is designed to mimic in-office treatments but can be used at home.

How it Works

This highly effective formula contains pharmaceutical-grade aluminum oxide crystals, which work to remove dead skin cells and improve texture, and is free of sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic chemicals. All-natural jojoba, aloe vera, and chamomile soothe, soften, and refresh newly exposed skin. As if flawless skin weren’t enough, it also leaves behind an invigorating citrus scent.

How to Use

Apply a quarter-sized amount to damp skin and gently massage in circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse. Use only 1-2 times per week, letting skin rest for 3 days between treatments.

I love the fine texture of this product. I do not like scrubbing my face with large granules. This product does the job. It is very delicate.

This is my absolute favorite Birchbox sample from the 2 years I've been receiving Birchbox. The smell is delish, it makes my skin feel so soft and refreshed and glowy. I absolutely love it and recommend it to anyone!

Good but pricey

Used twice so far from my sample and really considering biting the pricey bullet to buy full size. Granules are tiny so theydon't feel rough like many exfoliators. Liked this very much!

My skin feels refreshed and new when I use this. I have large pores and oily skin and this makes a huge difference. My skin feels so smooth. It really does buff the dead skin off!

Not too rough, not too soft, just right
Purchased

I feel either some scrubs are too much or too little. I get chapped face and lips, and I am so happy this awesome product does what it promised. Comes out in a nice cream that foams up well. Clean but not dry. Smells good.

I was pretty skeptical at first but once trying it, I can never go back. It really makes my face so extremely smooth and soft. I just wish the full size product were cheaper!

Truly Brightens Skin

After using this product, my mom told me how bright my skin looked. The product texture is perfect! Not to rough on the skin, but still feels effective.

just used this sample while i was in snowy colorado for a week long vacation. what an amazing product! from the first use, you can really tell the effects. it sloughs away dry skin, evens out imperfections, and gives a nice, clean buffed look to your skin. i barely wore any makeup the day after using this - my skin looked amazing as is. will definitely purchase the full size. also a little goes a very long way!
