Birchbox Breakdown

There are many reasons to love this best selling cleanser, but we’ll limit ourselves to three: it dissolves makeup, clears up breakouts, and balances skin’s natural pH. The daily wash is gentle enough for sensitive and irritation-prone complexions, and rinses away completely—no need for toner! Whoops, was that more than three reasons?

How it Works

This amino acid-based foaming gel uses naturally antibacterial grapefruit to prevent blemishes and gently exfoliate skin. Hydrating glycerin and sodium pca ensure that your complexion is left soft, not taut.

How to Use

Apply to damp skin and work into a lather. Rinse clean with warm water.

Great Face Wash
Purchased

I've been using this face wash for years. It is great for combination skin. It cleanses and exfoliates without over drying. No harsh chemicals for sensitive skin.

Well balanced, doesn't dry out my face
Purchased

I really do like this product, it leaves my face feeling clean and not overly dry, and the grapefruit smell is nice,
but it also kind of reminds me of the smell of bubble-liquid.

Great Scent, Mild Formula
Purchased

I have dry skin and I've been looking for something that would effectively clean without out drying out my skin and I think I've found that with this cleanser. I love that I can use this everyday, morning and night, and my skin feels fresh and clean. I also love the light grapefruit scent.

Good Product

This product smells amazing! I used this product while traveling & it helped my face absorb my moisturizer better. After long nights out this cleanser removed my make-up better and faster. Definitely will buy!

Finally Happy with a Cleanser!

Hydrating, cleansing, leaves skin smooth and soft...what more could you want in a face wash, really? I have a bit of rosacea and it's not bothered one bit by this cleanser. Also, if you're looking for a Face Mask, the Detox Mask is AMAZING. I'm slowly but surely switching out my products for Malin + Goetz. I recommend taking a minute and reading up on the owner's backgrounds and own skin ailments. It's no wonder they're taking over prime real estate in my medicine cabinet!

Deliciously cleansing

A really yummy scent paired with great foaming and cleansing power- what more could you want in a face cleanser? Doesn't leave my sensitive skin feeling too stripped, just very clean and fresh.

Fantastic cleanser

My skin literally squeaked after cleansing with this stuff. Squeaky clean. I would've given five stars but for the price. Ouch.
