Birchbox Breakdown

Save time during your nightly skincare routine with this gentle formula that doubles as cleanser and makeup remover. Infused with olive and grape-seed oil, it cleanses and moisturizes without clogging pores. It even does triple duty as a mask.

How it Works

Straight from the Napa Valley, olive and grape-seed oils join forces to create a cleanser that penetrates pores without blocking them. The flower power of lupin extract further enhances elasticity, leaving skin firm.

How to Use

Wet face with tepid water, pump out enough cleanser to cover face, and gently lather with a circular motion. Leave on for a few seconds before rinsing clean, then pat skin dry with a towel. The formula is gentle enough for sensitive eyes.

Gentle 29 Preserves Cream Cleanser does what it says

This product moisturized my skin, while removing my makeup and cleaning my skin of the day's impurities. It also can be used as a mask, which I tried, and loved its feeling afterward. The olive and grape-seed oil left my skin feeling refreshed and youthful.

filmy

This product is infused with olive oil and grape seed oil, and that is exactly what it smells like. Personally, I don't want to smell like olive oil and grapes. I received a sample of this cleanser in my box this month. The sample was a single use size, so I only tried it once. Even though I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed my skin, it felt like my face and neck were covered in a film.

Nice formula, not enough

I was excited to use the Cream cleanser when I got it in my Birchbox. However, the sample size was too small so I could not see a significant change in my complexion. The formula itself was light and felt creamy. My skin felt nice and soft after two washes with this cleanser.

Sample too small

I cannot honestly say how well or not this works because the sample was so small I only used it once and this isn't enough times to make a decision.

Sample too small

Although the product smelled good, it would be impossible for me to recommend this product based on such a tiny sample!

Would be great for dry skin

I have oily skin and while I liked that this didn't totally strip it of oils, I felt like it also left a little too much moisture on my skin. The sample packaging also made it hard to use.

Nice scent

This is a nice cleanser. As a person with oily skin I would probably only use it at night, but it is very moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft. It also has a nice calming scent.

Sampled this, considering the full size version...

As some other reviewers have noted, 29's samples are single-use-only, so I feel like my knowledge of this product is limited. However, I love the smell of the product, and I'm a huge fan of oil-based cleansers. (Yes, you read that right. Remember the number one rule in chemistry class, "like dissolves like"? Oil-based cleansers are super effective!) I'm thinking about buying the full size product but hesitant since I wasn't a huge fan of the rest of 29's skincare suite (again, take this with a grain of salt since the samples were tiny).

Creamy but fresh!

Having somewhat oily skin, I was a bit skeptical about using a cream cleanser, but my skin felt bright and refreshed after using this. And the scent was wonderful!
