Birchbox Breakdown

This world-renowned two-part skincare system (seriously, it’s won more than 100 beauty awards) has a major cult following. Try it once and you’ll find out why. Not only does it gently remove all traces of dirt, grime, and makeup (yes, even your waterproof, wear-all-day, no-flake mascara and eyeliner), when paired with the brand’s ingenious muslin cloth, it also sweeps away dulling dead skin cells for a gorg glow.

How it Works

This creamy cleanser contains moisturizing cocoa butter, and two of nature’s best astringents: eucalyptus essential oil and rosemary. These plant oils lift dirt off the skin’s surface without disrupting the natural barrier function. With the use of the brand’s 100 percent cotton muslin cloth, skin is gently polished without irritation—perfect for even the most sensitive of complexions.

How to Use

Gently massage one to two pumps onto dry face and neck in circular motions. Run warm water over your muslin cloth (also available in our Shop), and sweep over face and neck to remove cleanser, dirt, grime, and oil. Once cleanser is fully removed, splash face with cool water.

Product Description is Accurate, Yeah!

I've argued with my oily skin for a majority of my life: I've seen multiple doctors and tried multiple prescriptions and over the counter remedies. I've changed my diet, make-up, stress level, everything. I'm not leading up to say this product has cleared my skin perfectly, but it works almost as well as some of the most extreme things I've done.

All this to say, the product description is accurate and I'm sold.

Winner.

Best cleanser ever!
Purchased

I had really never considered a cream cleanser before receiving the sample in my Birchbox but now it's my new favorite! I love how my face doesn't feel all dried out after I use this and the subtle minty tingle and smell of the cream. The warm cloth is really relaxing and helps exfoliate without being harsh as scrubs often are. Would definitely recommend!

Love it
Purchased

I got the sample several months ago, December maybe, and I've been using it since. It makes my skin so clean and smooth.

I would love it if travel sizes were available (perhaps the size of the sample) for purchase as well.

Gentle but effective exfoliating cleanser. My makeup goes on so smoothly after using this product. The smoothing results were immediate. I plan to never be without this product!

Love this cleanser

This cleansing system is the best I come across. The cleanser is gentle but exfoliating when used with the cloth and removes everything- including waterproof mascara.

Worth every penny.

Amazing

I'm always skeptical about trying new face washes due to the fact that I have combination skin that is break-out prone. Even after the first use, I noticed a difference in my skin. My tone was more even and glowy. My face was hydrated but not oily. My acne has disappeared. Plus, that hot muslin cloth feels absolutely amazing. I would never ever think of paying $20+ for a face wash. But this stuff is beyond worth it!

Purchased after first use.

I love, love this product. It smells fantastic, and my skin is radiant and smooth. I broke out a little bit after using it, but after that, my skin is clear and pores smaller.

The reason I'm a birchbox subscriber

My friend handed this off to me from her monthly set of goods, she said, "I have my holy grail cleanser. I don't need to try anything else."

I am really grateful that she gave me this. I am happy she had what worked for her but this REALLY works for my combination dry skin. I have seen a measurable change for the better in my skin since beginning to use this. A little goes a long way and it smells heavenly. It's like giving yourself a mini-aromatherapy massage while also ridding your face of the days grime.

The only real con is that the muslin cloth must be replaced. You cannot get away with reusing the same one for more than a month. Even if you wash it, it loses the gently gradient of the cloth that helps to smooth away dead skin effectively.

After buying a full bottle I also subscribed to birchbox. Clearly this isn't just an overstock beauty supply store. This is the holy grail beauty go-to store.

Awesome!

This stuff really works. I received a sample and wasn't really sure if I would like it so I put off trying it for a while. I ran out if my regular face wash so I gave it a try- my skin feels really smooth, but not stripped. The experience of using the muslin cloth is really nice, they are soft and not harsh on the skin. I will be buying the full size ASAP

Unique

This is a very unique way to cleanse your face. You rub the cleanser on a dry face and then use the muslin cloth with warm water to rub in and off your face. My face did feel invigorated probably because of the eucalyptus.
