Birchbox Breakdown

For us, traveling used to by synonymous with overpacking. But after a little self-reflection, we realized that our shoes do not, in fact, need a suitcase all to themselves. Let the downsizing begin. Developed by Linda Stephenson, a former beauty exec with a science-based background, this moisturizer streamlines your skincare routine and enriches skin with natural enzymes and antioxidants. This travel-size multitasker also functions as a makeup primer, toner, and eye cream, so it’s perfect for tossing in your carry on—with plenty of room to spare.

How it Works

This aloe-based gel contains 16 botanical extracts, 8 enzymes and minerals, and over 20 antioxidants chosen for their purity and effectiveness—adding up to one powerful product. A combination of caffeine and apple and cucumber extracts contributes to the all-in-one moisturizer’s refreshing cooling and tightening sensation.

Wow!!!!
Sampled

This may very well be my all time favorite facial moisturizer, it's so perfectly light, and doubles as a face primer before applying makeup. Also, it smells wonderful!

Decent moisturizer/toner, LOVED the packaging
Sampled

The moisturizer overall was decent. I only used it at night because it made me rather shiny, and after a day or two I had a rough patch on my chin, but that cleared up. I thought the packaging was ingenious - multiple uses without having to worry about getting moisturizer everywhere or having anything dry out! I was very impressed.

Light moisturizer
Sampled

I would consider using this moisturizer in the summer, but it's way too light for winter. I noticed that the label mentions the possibility of light peeling after using this product, which was a bit of a turn off for my sensitive skin.

Just fine
Sampled

One of those products that is just fine but after 5 days of use I felt my skin was a little dry. I probably need more moisturizing product.

I liked this moisturizer under my makeup, it did a good job and didn't make my face oily.

sticky
Sampled

The packaging is slightly awkward but once I got some out I felt like it didn't spread well on my face. Once I had gotten it on my face it felt kind of sticky and took awhile to soak in. It also has a bit too much of a scent for a face lotion.

caused me to break out

I loved how large the sample is- i was able to use it morning and night for 5+ days. I was really liking it but then my skin started to break out.

Good sample

I really liked the packaging of this cream. Would make it great for traveling. The smell is between non-existent and a little old smelling. But it did leave my skin feeling very hydrated. Not sure I would use it as an eye cream as they suggest.

Way better than expected
Sampled

I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. I wouldn't use it as a daily moisturizer but it worked well when I used it for going out. Kept my skin matte & my makeup stayed in place the whole time me. The priming aspect of it was pretty good as well, didn't totally mask my pores but did improve them enough for me to like the effects of the product.

Oily Result
Sampled

This moisturizer feels nice going on, however, after application, my skin looked oily and very shiny. I like that it is multi-purpose, it just made my skin so gross looking.
