Birchbox Breakdown

We hate to admit it, but after a particularly long day, we’ve been known to wear makeup to bed (shhh!). After using this overnight serum, however, we’re no longer tempted to take shortcuts. Waking up to fresh, youthful-looking skin is well worth the 30 seconds it takes to apply this powerful overnight moisturizer. The antiaging serum improves skin texture and tone by stimulating cell turnover and counteracts dullness for a healthy glow, enabling us to greet a refreshed complexion in the mirror each morning.

How it Works

The serum features a time-released two percent retinol complex to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and yield even, supple skin. It also includes olive active, an ingredient that combats redness and inflammation. Another plus: We can smooth it on without fear of causing irritation because it contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.

How to Use

After cleansing skin at bedtime, apply a thin layer to boost radiance overnight. Retinol is known to result in sun sensitivity, so be sure to wear sunblock with UV protection the next morning to protect your complexion. Note: Never use this with other exfoliating products.

skin changing

I have been using thus glow product for a month now and live it. When I wake up each morning my skin is soft and supple. I use a serum underneath and the glow ruby crystal retinol hydracrème and my skin has never looked better. I have even stopped wearing foundation on most days. As far as my fine lines, I have noticed a change in the ones by my eyes, when I smile you can visibly tell they are not as deep and not even notice when I'm not. I will definitely continue to splurge on these two glow products.

throwing out my other night serums/lotions/potions
Purchased

Use it for a week. Then you will see it delivers. I am thrilled and ordering the day version next. What a surprise the quick results were. I am terrible about using products consistently but I haven't stopped using this since I started two weeks ago. Worth it because it is luxurious and easy to spread in a thin layer so it really is effective.

Must have!

I can't live without this product! Been using it past 3 years and it's really helped with keeping my skin clear. It is great for sensitive, oilu, combo and acne prone skin. Highly recommend!

Great product!
Purchased

I truly love using this!! It's not greasy, not overly moisturizing!! It's a very light product that can be used at anytime...day or night. I reviewed another product by dr. Brandt and once again I do not care for the smell but...I can overlook this to get the benefits provided by the product!!

Great Product

I had never tried this before, but this one is perhaps really worth the money. I also love the silver packaging... it looks nice and modern.

this stuff works!

I had a couple large (large by my standards) milia spots on my face that the dermatologist could remove for $75 a pop. She mentioned that getting a couple exfoliating facials may also do the trick, but couldn't guarantee it. I decided to buy the resurfacing serum and within 2 weeks I could already see the milia shrinking. I've been using this product for a couple months now and they are 100% gone and my face's texture has completely improved. This stuff is great and I could actually see the results before my eyes! It smells a little weird, but once it's absorbed into the skin, that goes away!

Works well
Purchased

I got this and used it about 3 days and did notice a difference. I first used Dr Brandt microdermabrasion facial scrub along with this and my skin was much brighter and smoother. My only complaint is that it does not smell that good but the smell does go away.

This stuff is great! I could tell a difference with the first use. This is my new favorite night cream. The only thing I don't like is the scent but my husband says he doesn't notice it.
