Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve been searching for a way to help us cover up our skin sins of the past. (Beet-red sunburns, we’re looking at you.) Consider our search over: This retinol-enhanced antiaging serum is backed by solid science. Not only do the clinically tested ingredients zap wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars, but they also fade redness for silky, zenned-out skin.

How it Works

This fragrance-free serum starts working immediately to clear up and smooth out skin. It releases a patented blend of retinol (stabilized for high performance), wrinkle-resisting antioxidants, and proven skin-soothers to help erase the effects of sun damage, poor lifestyle choices (ahem—tanning beds), and of course, Father Time.

How to Use

Before bed, gently smooth a few drops into clean, dry skin. Safe for the eye area, too.

Ringle Repair Serum
Purchased

I loved my trial size of this product so much that i ended up purchasing a full sizero bottle! I'm hoping to see a reduction in my sun spots and less wrinkles around my face and eyes.

great stuff
Sampled

I received this as one of my BB samples a while back and recently decided to try it out. I have dark, ugly, brown blotches on my face that I have been so self-conscious of for a very long time. Paula's Choice RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum has been such a great product for me! The little lines I had on my face were filled in and those dreaded spots are fading to the point where now I can cover them with makeup (no concealer necessary). The texture of my skin is so much better as well. I will be purchasing the full size product very soon, as I am so happy with the sample. Thanks Birchbox and Paula's!

Greasy
Sampled

I'm in my late 20s, and so I haven't given wrinkles much thought, nor have really altered my skincare routine much. Maybe that makes me unfit to write a review, but I'm going to anyway. I didn't care for the greasiness of this product. You could not wear this at daytime at all, and need to apply it well before bed to give it a chance to soak into your skin.

I liked this product just wish that it came in a bigger bottle.
Very smooth, not at all sticky. I would by again if it came in bigger bottle

Great Serum!
SampledPurchased

I received this as a sample in my birchbox and I love it! I tend to have oily and acne-prone skin and it doesn't aggravate it either. It makes my skin very soft and I've seen improvements with fine lines around my eyes and forehead. I would definitely recommend this product!

OK
SampledPurchased

This product is just ok. I use it under my moisturizer in the AM. It does give my skin a very soft feeling, but I really have not seen any real results.
