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.

simply amazing
Purchased

This kit was a perfect little starter to get me hooked on this brand. I received the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels in my last birch box and loved them which made me want to try more of their products. And I'm so glad I did! Just from using the Nordic Skin Peel pads a few times I've noticed a difference. Same with the lotion and cleanser. Have yet to try the eye relief pen. But everything else I love! And will be purchasing at some point again.

love this kit!!
Purchased

Some of the items in this kit I had tried before and some were new to me. The Nordic Skin Peel is a long-time favorite of mine and does a great job treating/preventing acne and increasing radiance. The Icelandic Relief Eye Pen was completely new to me but I really like the cooling sensation (it's not too much and didn't burn or sting my eyes at all as some eye creams tend to do) and it has a nice light, creamy texture. Also, I think it's worth mentioning what a great deal this is. The Nordic Skin Peel alone usually retails for about $45 and the remainder of the items in the kit is worth way more than $5! I will definitely be purchasing this again!

Skyn is In

This gift set is amazing. I had each one sampled and then bought the gift pack. i first tried skyn a few years ago and never tried other face lotions since. Its amazing in the summer time when you're hot, just spray on some of the mist or pat on lotion and you're good! it leaves your face and skin feeling refreshed and brand new literally. these products are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for and these are totally worth it. I had acne prone skin a few years back and i admit the lotions and masks definitely helped keep the acne away. It hydrates your skin as well and took away any dryness i had and left it looking young and healthy.

This kit had me addicted the 2nd day! I have combination skin and found all these products to balance everything out. The face wash left my face cleaner than I have ever felt. The skin peel toner leaves a pleasant cool feeling and the non greasy lotion completes the coolness feeling. I have tried all kinds of face potions including dr. Brandt, Shea terra, orgins, clinique and several other high end products and these have won me over and can consider me loyal. I highly recommend!

much too harsh
Purchased

I do not have sensitive skin & found this line to be much too harsh. It's the type of skin product that makes your skin look amazing for several days then starts to look bad because of how abrasive it is. My biggest concern while ordering it was value, but the amounts of product were enough at least for one month. The only part of the bag I was really happy with was the eye treatments. I wish there were much more of those.

Nice product line, quick and easy to use!
Purchased

The 2-Puffy reducing eye treatments worked ok, not a major difference. The moisturizer was great, I really liked it, but the size was very small, I wish it was a little larger. It blended in easily, did not feel greasy at all and just a very light scent. The exfoliating pads were were full size and work well to clean my face not sure they did too much in the way of exfoliating but I still liked them. The eye pen for puffiness was also nice it worked just as well as the eye treatments. I was not a fan of the cleanser, it was a strange texture (kind of slimy) and did not feel like it was cleansing my face. I expected the same cooling effect as the other products, but it was not the same. I would not purchase the cleanser, but liked that I could try everything out!

It all works!!
Purchased

I've been a fan of the eye gels and the antidote for years. But I avoided the skin peel thinking it would be too harsh. Well it isn't harsh at all. And it does make such a difference even using it only twice a week. I prefer the eye cream to the pen, but the pen is great for travel and for tough days at work. This is a great kit.
