Birchbox Breakdown

Who says your antiaging regimen needs to be limited to creams and serums? Turn your daily cleansing ritual into a rejuvenating experience with this foaming cleanser that refreshes skin without leaving it feeling tight or dry. Enriched with dissolvable vitamin E beads, it softens, conditions, and protects skin while also restoring its youthful radiance.

How it Works

Formulated with a blend of nourishing vitamins, essential oils, and marine extracts, dr. brandt light years away® whitening cream cleanser visibly improves skin’s health to leave your complexion more even-toned and luminous. Vitamin E diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while soothing tamanu oil provides anti-inflammatory benefits and beta-carotene protects against oxidative stress, Abyssine® 657, a synthetic marine derivative, defends skin against environmental damage, while Lightoceane®, an algae-based lightening agent, combats hyperpigmentation.

How to Use

Apply a tiny amount to damp skin, using a circular motion to massage product gently into skin, taking care to avoid contact with the eyes. Rinse with warm water. Use morning and evening.

Squeaky Clean
Purchased

This is the first facewash I've used in a long time that left my face legitimately squeaky clean. You can really, really feel the difference in how clean your skin is. It also makes my make up go on very smoothly. As for the whitening, I think my skin looks really clear and soft, and that's what I was looking for.

Good product
Purchased

This works so well. People actually noticed my freckle face looks less freckly. When I put my powder on in the morning my face is much brighter.

LOVED this stuff

This cleanser goes a long way with just a little bit. My face is very sensitive and this cleanser was very gentle and didn't break me out. It was refreshing and just after 3 cleanses, I did notice a little brightening. I have already purchased the full size bottle!

Left my skin dry

I am a low maintenance skin user . I think this product was not the right fit for my skin type. My skin got dry and blotchy patches, very minimal but enough for me to stop using the product.

A little goes a long way, but doesn't remove make-up

If you're going to look at JUST a morning cleanser (assuming you wash and remove make-up at night) then I'd give this a 4 or 5 star rating. But as an overall cleanser, it doesn't make the cut, especially for the price. A little bit does go a long way, which is good, but it doesn't remove make-up very well and I had to re-wash with my other cleanser before I felt clean.

Whoa.

I've always been blessed with pretty clear skin, but lately I've noticed that it's been a little duller than it was a few years ago. This stuff will give you skin like a 12 year old. It is amazing.

great cleanser
Purchased

I received a sample of this product in my October Birchbox. Although the sample was small, I fell in love with thsi product. It was super creamy and created a great lather. My skin felt soft after I used it. I purchased the full size product!

Nice cleanser

I quite like this cream cleanser. It has a smooth feel, a nice scent that doesn't linger too strongly, removed makeup pretty well and made my skin feel very silky with use. I can't speak to how it performs over time with lessening dark spots as I used a sample size over the course of about 4 days. But it definitely didn't make my somewhat sensitive skin worse. I also like the ingredient list compared to many anti-aging products, nothing too controversial in it in terms of safety.

Leaves skin bright and clean

This cleanser leaves skin squeaky clean. It's great for oily or combination skin and I even noticed a difference in my dark spots. There are micro beads that dissolve fully and exfoliate beautifully.

Sample too small to tell

I received an itty bitty sample packet of this, tried it, but there was too little to see any difference in my skin tone.
