Birchbox Breakdown

We love how flawless a good foundation and concealer can make our skin look—but long term, we’d rather heal our breakouts and blackheads than try to hide them. This exfoliating gel unclogs pores to prevent breakouts and dissolve blackheads. It also lightly hydrates skin—leaving our complexion smooth and blemish-free.

How to Use

After cleansing and toning, smooth a dime-sized amount onto face, including the area surrounding your eyes. Do not rinse. If you use the gel in the morning, follow up with sunblock (SPF 25 or higher) to protect your skin.

Water, Methylpropanediol (slip agent/water-binding agent), Xanthan Gum (thickener), Salicylic Acid (beta hydroxy acid/exfoliant), Polysorbate-20 (emulsifier), PEG-12 Dimethicone (silicone thickener), Butylene Glycol (slip agent), Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, (anti-irritant/antioxidant), Epilobium Angustifolium (Willow Herb) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract (anti-irritant), Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract (antioxidant), Portulaca Oleracea Extract (antioxidant), Tetrasodium EDTA (stabilizing agent), Bisabolol (anti-irritant), Chlorphenesin (preservative), Sodium Benzoate (stabilizer), Sodium Hydroxide.

I love it
Purchased

I've always had a super oily complexion and I've tried many products. The first day I used it my face was oil free by the end of the day. I haven't used it long enough to see the other benefits from this product. One thing I will say is that it does feel a little thick after application and it leaves my skin feeling a little dry. It does great under makeup though.

My skin looks BEAUTIFUL!

I received this skin perfecting gel in my February Birch Box, and have been loving it! My skin is smoother and my pores look tiny. This is a fabulous product, I will definitely be purchasing it!

Results after first use!

I love this product. I have sensitive skin so I am usually hesitant to try these kinds of skin treatments, but this works great. Easy on skin and fast results. Skin started clearing up after just one use!

ever since Neutrogena discontinued its anti wrinkle anti blemish moisturizer, I have been on a hunt to find a new night moisturizer. Combined with the serum, this has evened my skin tone and shrunk pores, as well as helped keep my generally oily complexion dry throughout the day.
