We love mixing this Super Booster with Paula's Choice RESIST Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.

Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

If the skincare world had a gifted program, this vitamin C face treatment from Paula’s Choice would be a shoo-in. The light-as-water formula visibly brightens skin in a matter of weeks, fading dark spots and wrinkles caused by everything from acne to sun exposure. Not only that, but it promotes plumper, younger-looking skin with a blend of smoothing antioxidants and collagen boosters. If acne is still a nuisance for you, fear not—the fast-drying liquid is ideal for all skin types and won’t clog your pores.

How it Works

A potent dose of 15% stabilized vitamin C starts working immediately to fade dark spots and leftover acne scars while also quelling redness. Antioxidant vitamin E, ferulic acid, and peptides help repair telltale signs of aging—like wrinkles and slackness—and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a smoother, tighter complexion. Bonus: The nonirritating formula is free of fragrances and dyes, and never tested on animals.

How to Use

Twice a day, dispense two to three drops into the palm of your hand and smooth over clean face. If you prefer, you can mix it into your moisturizer or serum and apply it that way. In the morning, follow this treatment with a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher.

Water, Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C/antioxidant), Ethoxydiglycol (slip agent/penetration enhancer), PPG-26 Buteth-26 (emulsifier), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (thickener), Tocopherol (vitamin E/antioxidant), Ferulic Acid (antioxidant), Sodium Hyaluronate (skin-repairing ingredient), Acetyl Octapeptide-3 (cell-communicating ingredient), Glycerin (skin-repairing ingredient), Panthenol (skin conditioning agent), Sodium Metabisulfite (stabilizer/antioxidant), Triethanolamine (pH adjuster), Phenoxyethanol (preservative).

Mixed this with a serum at night and in the morning. My skin felt great after use. I wish the sample size would have been bigger

Great skincare treatment
Sampled

I love any type of skincare treatment in general, but this one really stands out. I use this in the evening after cleansing to let it soak into my skin overnight. Over the course of using the sample I found my skin looking younger. I also have sensitive skin and this product did not irritate it or cause any blemishes. Great for giving your skin a treat!

Wow and holy cow, all at once!
Sampled

So, the first time I tried this product, I tried it on its own and kind of dripped it along the zones of my face, the. Rubbed it in. Effective, but I fear wasteful. After that, I took the label's suggestion and added it to my facial cream. I am LOVING the results! After using an exfoliating cleanser, I can actually feel this product working on my skin. My lines have decreased in depth, my skin feels smoother and I am loving the results now that this product has been included in my daily routine. I would highly recommend this product to friends and family!

still undecided
Sampled

The product felt great on my skin but I did not see any visible results after using it. This is most likely due to the fact that the sample size doesn't allow for enough uses to see results. It may work after using consistently for a month but I did not have enough product to see results.

helped with dark spots

I really liked this product! I used it on my chest and it is helping fade a couple of dark spots that I have. It feels great on and disappears into your skin when you put it on.

LIFE-CHANGING!

This is arguably one of the best products I have ever received in my Birchbox! It leaves your skin feeling supple and moist like you just left a sauna. I could feel the wrinkles around my eyes vanishing as soon as I put it on! Highly recommended!

love it
Sampled

I love the idea of this product however I wish the sample size was bigger. The liquid is so fast drying that it was hard to smooth all over my face before it dried. With that said, I still highly recommend it. It left my skin looking and feeling great!

Goes on easily under your moisturizer
Sampled

I put this on under my daily moisturizer on a clean face. Noticed an obvious change within 2 weeks and continued improvement since. Just wish the bottle lasted a bit longer.
