After washing your face, exfoliate with Benefit’s refined finish facial polish to brighten dull skin.

Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

Benefit’s daily cleanser comes in a chic blue tube that will make your other products look humdrum in comparison. Appearances aside, the gentle formula works into a creamy, meringue-like lather that softly removes dirt and impurities. And unlike some cleansers, it gets the job done without drying out your skin.

How it Works

A hefty dose of glycerin leaves your skin feeling soft, never dry and tight. Meanwhile, soothing cleansers remove dirt, oil, even eye makeup. Amino acids help moisturize skin.

How to Use

Wet your face. Apply a small amount of cleanser, and lather into a foam. Massage into your skin using circular motions. Rinse away with warm water.

Best Face Wash!
Purchased

I can't say enough good things about this facial wash. It is so creamy and leaves my skin unbelievably soft. Another great feature is that a little goes a long way! I won't go back to drug store face wash again.

Love it!
Purchased

I have been using the Benefit facial care line since my first Birchbox had a sample of the eye cream and facial lotion. I immediately started getting the rest of the line and love it! This facial wash is no exception. Leaves my skin feeling amazing! Does not dry out, smells fantastic, and actually leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their skincare regimen without breaking the bank.

Eh...

Does it clean my face? Yes. Does it do anything special? No. I feel like it's not really any better than anything I've bought from a drugstore. Probably won't bother purchasing again.

Leaves my face super clean
Purchased

I have tried SO many face washes but I keep coming back to this one because it gets all of the makeup off my face, even my eye makeup! It also smells so fresh and I love pairing it with the Benefit Facial Polish.

Drying

I have oily combo skin and nothing ever dries my skin out. This made my skin extremely dry. I decided that I am going to keep it and use it maybe once a week during the summer just as something to help with oil. I thought this would also feel good on my skin but it doesn't make my skin soft or feel nice. Disappointed

Fresh & Clean
Purchased

I have tried everything from popular to more overpriced niche brands, and none of them compare to Benefit’s radiant skin product line. I have tried every product in the line, narrowing down to five must haves for my daily routine. All of their products come packaged in vintage inspired bottles, and their scent is fresh & clean. For my morning routine, I use their foaming facial wash to remove any excess oil accumulated overnight. Right before I go to bed, I once again use the foaming facial wash to remove dirt & makeup, following up with their exfoliating scrub. Priming my skin, I use their moisture prep toner, finally applying their moisturizer and eye cream just before bed. For the past few years of maintaining this routine, my skin has kept a natural youthful glow, retaining healthy hydration but also preventing excess oil. This is by far the best skin care line there is, and for the price, it is a great value too as each product lasts a very long time.
