Birchbox Breakdown

Even when you don’t have blemishes, there are other complexion nuisances to deal with—namely, sun spots, acne scars, and age spots. Instead of just concealing them, call in this gentle gel cleanser. Developed by a leading dermatologist, the targeted formula uses a team of natural skin brighteners, including licorice root and mulberry bark, to even out your complexion and lighten discolorations. Over time, you’ll have noticeably smoother, brighter skin. Now you just need to hold up your end of the bargain by using it every day.

How it Works

A cocktail of potent active ingredients works to fade the look of brown spots, scars, and redness while also leaving skin fresh and smooth. In addition to naturally brightening botanicals like mulberry bark, licorice root, and peach leaf, the formula has exfoliating glycolic and salicylic acids to refine skin’s texture and stave off blemishes.

How to Use

If your skin is normal to oily, feel free to use this cleanser day and night. If your skin is dry, limit yourself to once-a-day use. Massage a nickel-size amount of cleanser into damp skin for 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry.

Something that I actually repurchased!
Purchased

I love trying new things, but I loved this enough to reorder. I have rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis. This is strong enough to keep the flakes at bay, keep my skin smooth and clear, but is not irritating.

Breakouts
Purchased

I had high expectations for this product given the other reviews on here. For my skin, it caused me to break out and really irritated my skin. I was hoping it would get rid of some of my scarring. I've reduced my use of this product to see if that will help. So far, I am not impressed.

Clean and Fresh
Purchased

Leave skin really clean and I have noticed dark spots fading with use. Not crazy about the newer packaging. I preferred the square bottle as it packs better for travel.

Great Cleanser

I have been using this cleanser for years. I love it. It's gentle enough on my skin that I can use it every morning with my Clairsonic MIA. I also use it at night. Keeps my face clear, no breakouts.

OK

Birchbox actually mailed me a HUGE sample which I still haven't finished. I liked this cleanser because it is really light, so it's nice if I just want to take off make up or refresh after a work out. I do think that it's weird that the package says you can't go in the sun after you use this wash - kind of freaks me out and question what kind of ingredients are in this. Also bad, because I would mostly want a light cleanser like this in the summer.

love it

I love this facial cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling clean & not dry. It also has given me smoother & brighter skin just as it states it will. I actually got a decent sample size of this product last year and noticed results almost instantly.

Love the product...sad the decreased the size

I love this cleanser and have been using it for over a year now. I was extremely disappointed to see that they decreased the size and not the cost. :( I may be searching for something new.
