Birchbox Breakdown

We’re all about slowing down the signs of aging, but we’re not going to stop living in the process. This serum goes on easily and absorbs quickly, so you don’t have to miss a beat. The state-of-the-art formula addresses multiple issues that cause skin to look older (redness, wrinkles, age spots) while it reduces inflammation and visible effects of sun damage—and it does so without retinol, which can upset sensitive skin.

How to Use

Morning and night, smooth a few drops onto clean, dry skin (and don’t forget the eye area). Works great under makeup too.

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier), Polysilicone-11, Lauryl PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Hyaluronic Acid, Resveratrol (antioxidant), Niacinamide, Quercetin, Adenosine, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopherol, Phospholipids, Ubiquinone, Epigallocatechin Gallate, Sea Whip Extract, Bisabolol, Beta Glucan, Phytic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

Very nice but not recommended for oily/combo skin

I go this as a sample in my Birchbox. The sample was adequate for several applications. I loved the feel of this going on, and how much a small amount could cover. I have combination/oily skin, however, and the sample was for normal.dry/very dry skin, so I was only able to use it as a special treatment once or twice a week. Any more and I was breaking out.

absorbs really well

i have used other oily serums that i felt impatient with as far as being absorbed. this looks like it's oily, but it doesn't linger on the skin like some other things i have tried. it's not harsh or smelly, not flashy at all. it just does it's job - it improved the texture and hydration of my skin in the areas i used it, and did not cause redness or breakouts.

good night serum
Purchased

I find that when I use this stuff my skin feels smoother in the morning. I think it also helps to control acne formation. It can feel a bit greasy so I don't like to use it during the day. I put this on after I wash my face and then follow it up with argan oil and my skin feels moisturized and my skin has remained clear.

Super Serum

Would probably need to use longer to see more results. But it worked pretty well on my skin which is usually fairly dry and has dark spots.

Great! Really is a pick me up!
Sampled

As a migraine sufferer somedays its really hard to look anything but absolutely exhausted. I have found that this product really is that pick me up my face needed on those rough days. I have gone from getting the dreaded "you look tired everything ok?", to getting compliments on my skin even when not feeling my best. Could not ask for more. I also love that a little drop goes far, something every girl looks for in any product.

Lightweight, Great Serum!

I bought this serum with high expectations, and they have been met!
This serum is great on my oily skin, and can function as a moisturizer under makeup =]

Fantastically moisturizing
Sampled

I was really amazed at how moisturizing this serum is. And that it doubles as offer other effects like reducing inflammation and darks spots is great. Also, all Paula's Choice products tend to have very skin friendly ingredients.
