Birchbox Breakdown

It’s tough to find a good cleanser when you have dry skin: deep cleaners can be too drying, while gentle formulas don’t always remove every trace of makeup and dirt. Well, you might want to call us Goldilocks...because we’ve finally found a cleanser that’s just right. After just one use, our skin was left squeaky clean and hydrated.

How it Works

Hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture, plumping its appearance and reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines in the process. Papaya gently exfoliates dead skin cells and clears clogged pores. Chamomile and lemongrass soothe even the most troubled complexions, while vitamins A and E soften skin and provide antioxidant protection.

How to Use

Dampen skin with warm water and apply a quarter-sized amount of cleanser to face. Gently massage in small circles to work up a lather, then rinse and pat dry.

Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid; Actimoist Bio-2), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Organic Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemon Grass) Extract (.1%), Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (.1%), Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail) Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract,Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Plumeria Fragrance.

I love this product. Helped with my dry patches on cheeks that were flaking. Left my face feeling clean and soft. Will continue to order.

The smell!

I greatly dislike it. My boyfriend loves it. Plus it's a great cleanser, so it stays. Strongly scented with what, to me, smells like blueberries, it lets you know it's there and doing it's thing. I used this all winter, and continue to in the summer. I really do recommend this cleanser and the lotion of the same type, plus most Derma e products because they really do work and they are friendly to your skin and the environment. However, just expect a strong scent. This worked great to remove my makeup, but left behind enough moisture that my hands and face didn't feel violated and desert-dry afterward.

Great Face Cleanser

This is a great gentle face cleanser, it has a smooth
texture, not much of a noticeable scent and a little
goes a long way. It removed almost all of my makeup,
I still needed to use eye makeup remover to take off
traces of mascara. However, I would definitely purchase

Super foaming deep cleaning

One of the best cleanser I have used. Does not dry your skin out!! Cleans with a super foaming action that lifts all traces of dirt or makeup.
This works well with your clarisonic.

Nothing special

My skin actually got drier when I used it! I used it for about a month and I honestly wouldn't ever by it again. I threw out half of a bottle just today because I know I would never use it again. Do not buy if you have dry skin. Waste of money.

A really high quality product that is both gentle and effective. You don't need all that much so its really a good value.

This product isn't anything spectacular. It does remove make up well, but that's about it. I was looking for a great skincare system and this just isn't it for me.
I did enjoy how easily it removed my make up. The scent was also pretty pleasant. You get a LOT of foam with this cleanser (I had huge bubbles all over my face and out of my nose, ha!).
I probably set my standards a little too high, as I was looking for my miracle product to give me the perfect & glowy skin I am after, but for the price, it is definitely a decent buy.

Everything the product summary says and everything that is written on the bottle is absolutely true. I wear A LOT of makeup - to give you an idea: a full face of foundation, powder, concealer, highlighter, blush, eye shadow, colored brow gel, winged gel eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and lip pencil (don't worry - I use natural colors and am an expert blender so that people can never tell how many face products I use). My nighttime routine is usually to dissolve all of it by massaging either extra virgin olive oil or cold cream all over my face, wiping that off, then washing with a cleanser or moisturizing bar. I'm usually left with raccoon eyes and depending on the cleanser I use, my face might be squeaky clean but tight and dry.

With ONE pump and no pre-dissolving, this DERMA-E cleanser removed ALL of it, no raccoon eyes and my face felt supple afterwards. Not super moisturized like I just put on cream or anything, but soft and supple and not dry at all. One pump. And usually face washes that are those sort of clear gel formulas work well for washing away all of the face product but leave me feeling as though I've cleansed with an anti-bacterial handsoap. This didn't.

I almost didn't buy this product due to the lack of reviews, but I'm glad that I took a chance and super glad to leave this raving review! I've only used the product 3 times and I think I have found my new cleanser. It's a love story!

derma e Hydrating Cleanser

LOVE!! I just moved to a drier climate and so my skin has been EXTRA dry this fall...this face wash is great because it feels like your skin is really clean, but not completely stripped of moisture. It lathers well and doesnt leave any film on your face...plus it is very affordable! I will definitely be purchasing again!

Derma e

This product was definitely not for me, I wanted to try it out, however it just made my skin worse. Almost over night my whole face broke out, and I do not have sensitive skin. I switched right back to my usual face wash, and it cleared up in a day or so.
