Birchbox Breakdown

It’s hard to let go of the past, especially when it comes to our skin. From regrettable encounters with the tanning bed (guilty) to whirling dervish zit-popping sessions (also guilty), youthful habits can leave their mark. Luckily, derma e® has stepped in to offer us a clean slate. Designed to knock out dark spots, sun spots, and other stubborn imperfections, this vitamin-packed formula brightens, hydrates, and evens skin tone without any greasy or sticky residue.

How it Works

Despite its heroic strength, this complexion-brightener goes easy on the planet and your skin: It’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, and GMO-free. An antioxidant- and vitamin-rich Intensive Skin Brightening Complex works to banish discoloration and boost skin’s radiance across the board, while caffeine increases circulation and witch hazel quells any lingering irritation.

How to Use

After cleansing skin, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of serum onto fingers and gently massage into face and neck.

Still unsure
Purchased

I was actually hoping it wasn't too late to return this, but it is. I think it has made some difference in the spots that aren't that bad to begin with, but not all. Since a sudden breakout a few weeks ago that I am now trying to narrow down to a specific cause, I haven't been using it as much.
Also, I can now only use it at night because when used under my foundation (Dr. Jart Black Label), my skin burns and feels irritated all day. I don't like being limited by that.
Meh.

Still unsure...
Purchased

I've used this a few times and cannot see a noticeable difference. It goes on smooth and does soften the skin but tends to tighten the skin as it absorbs. Perhaps with prolonged use I will come to love this serum, but as of now, I'm feeling pretty neutral about this product.

Got it on a whim and it's a keeper
Purchased

I use this everyday and I've definitely noticed a difference. I have dark acne marks that are my number one skin problem and using this in the AM and then my perscription Ziana in the PM have made it that I barely need any makeup anymore. A quick sheer tint and a little dab of concealer and I'm good to go. It doesn't provide any moisture so you still need moisturizer, but it's totally worth a shot.

Does what it says

I've used oils before, but this is the first serum I've tried. I loved this stuff. It did brighten and even out my skin tone. My sample included the brightening face wash, serum, and night cream. I just wanted to put that out there, because I did use them all together. I have dry skin and this serum was hydrating. I don't know how it would do on oily skin. If used on it's own, it might be fine, but not along with the night cream.

Lightweight
Purchased

This serum has evened my skin out so well, and it's so lightweight that it absorbs quickly and still works. Love this product!

Noticeable difference already!
Purchased

I have acne scars on both sides of my mouth and on my chin. This product has lightened them to a point I barely need a concealer now. And in just a few weeks. It's light and non-greasy, easy to apply. Hasn't done much for a small age spot under my eye, but I have confidence it will.

Dissapointing
Purchased

I just finished up the bottle, and I haven't gotten any result. Even after applying it on my face, I still never saw a result. This personally didn't do anything for me. I will look somewhere else for a brightening serum that actually works.

Was not happy with this product
Purchased

I've been looking for something to remove age spots. This was not it. I ordered and used it with the night time cream. I was excited to try both, but did not really see a difference in my skin. I did not like the feeling it left on my skin after I applied it.
