Skyn Iceland

Birchbox Breakdown

With this skin-refreshing kit from Skyn Iceland, we can be sure we’re putting our best face forward—and leaving dull skin, dark circles, and blemishes behind. The five formulas keep our skin refreshed and glowing, so we’re always ready to make a good impression. The kit includes two dark circle- and puffiness-reducing eye treatments, a complexion-clearing moisturizer, exfoliating peel pads, and soothing face cleanser, and suitable for any (soon-to-be-radiant) skin type.

How it Works

All five formulas rely on mineral-laden Icelandic glacial water and a variety of nourishing botanical extracts and derivatives to revitalize tired skin of any type. Nordic Skin Peel pads slough away dull skin and help minimize pores and prevent breakouts. Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels firm delicate undereye skin and diminish dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines with a 10-minute treatment, while the Icelandic Relief Eye Pen lets you dab on dark circle-battling, puffiness-reducing goodness on the go. The ANTITODE Cooling Daily Lotion moisturizes and soothes stressed or irritated skin and reduces blemishes. Glacial Face Wash deeply cleanses skin without drying it out.

How to Use

Work a dime-sized amount of face wash into a lather, and gently rub onto damp face, then rinse. After cleansing skin, lightly glide a peel pad over face three to five times per week. Daily, gently dab eye pen on undereye area and eyelids, then lightly pat cooling lotion onto face and neck. Once a week, use eye gels before eye pen for extra relief.

Refreshing!
Purchased

I like to use this product about 3 times a week. Mainly in the morning. It has a cool wake me up feeling after I wash and apply the lotion. I do not use the pads as directed only because my face is a little sensitive to them, but if I want a fast wash I do use them and dry my face fast. Over all it's a nice product. I would defiantly get the face lotion again. I love how it feels !

Took a chance and it totally worked out...
Purchased

First off this stuff is all about sample size, was a little surprised by how small everything was. That being said, this stuff is AMAZING! Even with the size of everything and the price, totally worth every penny. I'm completely addicted to the face wash, it's so clean smelling and makes my face feel soft and noticeably tighter. The eye pen alone is worth this kit. I work nights and after using this a few times you would never be able to tell. Makes the dark circles ALOT smaller. Moisturizer was nice, overall refreshing. I will be ordering this again. Just ordered full sized products because definitely in love.

What a collection!
Purchased

2 sets of under eye packs! Awesome. The eye pen is full size and I really like how bright it makes me look. The face wash is great, a new fav. The moisturizer does tingle but didn't irritate me. The peel pads are full size too (60) - this whole kit is well worth the price, great value!!

Love this!
Purchased

I was looking for a new skin care regime and after researching I decided to try this starter kit - the price was right, and if I didn't like it, I didn't feel like I wasted much. I've LOVED everything in this pack and purchased full sizes since. The cooling sensation feels amazing after a long day and is refreshing to get the day started. I've never had many problems with my skin, but my skin is even softer and the eye pen is a great way to get just enough eye cream without over-doing it. I am so happy I tried this!!

Skyn Iceland is my new favorite brand!
Purchased

This kit is amazing. Skyn Iceland is amazing. After one use I can already say that I absolutely love this product line, and will be a faithful user for the rest of forever. My face felt so clean after using the cleanser, and following with the other products (I also purchased the face mist) they just produced a fresh feeling and my skin is instantly brighter. Don't be afraid of the small sizes in this kit, a little goes a very long way with the lotion and cleanser. I can't wait to buy everything in full size!

Cleanser: This is the only product that (in my opinion) doesn't have an immediate mentholated feel to it. Like mentioned above, my face actually felt CLEAN after using it.

Eye Pen: I have genetic dark circles under my eyes, and this pen not only lightened them immediately, I can tell that it will refresh tired eyes as well. It has a wonderful cooling sensation.

Skin Peel Pads: Brightened the skin on my face almost immediately. Left a light tingling sensation, and just overall left a fresh feeling all over. I wouldn't use these every day if you have sensitive skin.

Lotion: I really did expect this to be heavy, but it was very light and (again) refreshing. It's not at all greasy, and is a great way to finish off the use of the other products.

Eye Gels: I have not had the opportunity to use these just yet, but if the other products are any indication (especially the eye pen) this will be the perfect remedy to heavy eye baggage after a long night.

HEAVEN IN A BAG
Purchased

Bought this as a gift to myself after christmas because it looked like such a good deal for the price. I am in love with EVERY product in this bag. This face wash is so smooth and calming i noticed instant results. My face was soft and my skin looked so clean and calm. The eye gels were great and made my eyes look like i had slept for a month straight! Then I used the Skin peel pads. i didn't think i would like these all that much but boy was I wrong. So incredibly cooling and my face was immediately tighter and firmer and my pores were FINALLY small! (i've had a long battle with my pores my whole life and NOTHING every works) My face was nice and cold and radiant so I applied the eye pen and that of course was amazing. My dark circles are getting lighter everyday and my puffiness is way down.The final product if the cooling face lotion and oh my gosh it's so refreshing. It instantly cools your face. but not that menthol kind of cold a very, icy but not overwhelming feeling.
All in all each product in this bag is so incredible. this kit is absolutely going to change the way feel about every current product you have ever loved. It blows everything out of the water!

Not for my sensitive skin.
Purchased

I really wanted this to work but it was just too harsh for my sensitive skin. I have rosacea and can use few products but every once in a while I like to give something new a try. The face wash was nice, it made my face feel clean, had a great lather and a light scent. The moisturizer was not wonderful, it felt almost sticky, like it wouldn't absorb properly. I felt like I had to rub the product off my hands once I applied it to my face. The pads were packaged beautifully, had lots of product on it and smelled fresh but unfortunately it made my face feel hot and burned. I didn't move on to the eye products in fear of more burning. So glad it worked for others but for this sensitive-skin-girl: back to my trusted Ceramiden cream and Juice Beauty Sensitive Skin peel.

Can't get enough
Purchased

Skyn products are simply amazing. It all started for me with the face wipes I received in my sample box. They were mind blowing. I had no clue that this line of products was out there, boy am I glad I found them. I purchased this kit so that I could sample a few more things from this line. I am so glad I did, I can not find one negative thing to say about any of their products. Well ok, some things are pretty expensive, but I feel as though I'm paying for great quality so it is totally worth it. I highly recommend this kit. U will not be disappointed.

Cooling Effect
Purchased

I have used everything in the kit and so far am very pleased. My skin has been very stressed and dry from cold winter weather and the cooling effect really makes a huge difference. My bags have not been as noticeable from using the eye treatment pen. The first time I used it it did have a burn feeling with the exfoliate cloth but using them once a week has been the best for my skin tone. The face lotion is my favorite and love the cooling sensation
