As you probably already know, here at Birchbox we’re all about discovering new and amazing products. So, if your skincare’s in need of a shake-up then it’s time to listen up! We’ve got 6 amazing hidden gems that you’ve probably never heard of (unless you’ve received one in your Birchbox of course!). Read on for all to be revealed…
Think of this bottle of floral delights as your fountain of youth! Straight out of Korea, this highly concentrated serum is enriched with Bulgarian rose damascene oil and 79% organic aloe vera to fight against signs of ageing, naturally. From wrinkles to radiance, this stuff will smooth, brighten, hydrate, and refine for a beautifully glowing complexion. Bonus: this stuff smells beautiful, too!
We aren’t all blessed with perfect, blemish-free, skin – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things we can do to get that flawless complexion! Specially formulated to work with your skin’s unique pH levels, this gel gently targets breakouts to heal spots without irritation. Even better? Thanks to hyaluronic acid and natural aloe, it actually injects moisture into the skin to leave it feeling soft and supple.
Brighten tired complexions and hydrate thirsty skin with this bottle of mineral-rich spring water. Beautifully refreshing, it dispenses a lightweight spritz that will instantly calm your skin (and your mind when you’re feeling a little frazzled!). Even better? It naturally protects your skin, soothes irritation, and can be used a setting spray to keep your carefully applied make-up in place.
Vasanti looked to powerful papaya enzymes to help create their Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. Perfect for improving your skin’s texture, it results in a softer, brighter and younger looking appearance – just the pick-me-up we’ve all been searching for. Packed with dermatologist grade micro-crystals for that deep clean sensation, it also gently cleanses with aloe vera, coconut and panthenol to ensure maximum hydration and a soothing finish.
We’ll be the first to admit that smooth, dewy skin is right at the top of our beauty wish list (right next to endless, clump-free lashes). This multi-tasking BB cream gets us much closer to our goal — and with minimal effort. It hydrates and calms skin, evens tone, controls shine, lightly masks imperfections, and, thanks to tiny flecks of light-reflecting pigments, infuses skin with a fresh-from the-yoga-studio radiance. This hypoallergenic, gluten-free, perfume-free, and oil-free formula is perfect for those with sensitive skin.
For days when you wish you could apply a real-life Instagram filter to your complexion, this age-defying serum is the next best thing. This stuff not only instantly illuminates your skin and boosts circulation, but it tightens everything up for a ‘Botox’ effect (without the nasty needles!). Even better? It also works below the skin’s surface to repair the skin’s cells, deeply nourish, and protect against pollution and free radicals.
