Now that your pores are squeaky-clean and stress-free, undo past skin damage with Paula’s Choice RESIST Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum.

Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

The key to youthful skin isn’t a full-bore assault on your pores—it’s a cleansing regimen that nixes oil and impurities without leaving skin stripped or dry. Luckily, “gentle” is the name of the game with this skin-balancing cleanser from Paula’s Choice. The aloe-enriched formula creates a creamy lather to whisk away grease and prep skin for your go-to products.

How it Works

This fragrance-free formula is clinically proven not to irritate sensitive skin. In fact, it soothes stressed-out complexions better than most cleansers we’ve tried. Bonus: it’s never tested on animals.

How to Use

Morning and night, massage a nickel-sized amount of cleanser into damp skin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Perfect Daily Face Wash
Purchased

I use this face wash every night before bed. It cleans my face without it feeling tight and dry. I also love that it is not tested on animals and is fragrance free without being chemically smelling. Most important aspect- the bottle is huge!! I will being using this for a while before I need to buy a new bottle. It is as big as some of shampoo bottles!

Great cleanser, but a tad drying.
Purchased

This is nice cleanser with a frothy consistency, which I like a lot. The bottle is huge! You really get your money's worth from this.
It removes makeup really well, but it leaves me feeling a little dry. I would re-purchase this though.

Liked it
Purchased

This is a HUGE bottle of cleanser. I was super surprised when I saw how much product I received for such a small amount of money. My face has cleared up quite a bit since I started using this cleanser. I will continue to purchase in the future.

Great face wash
Purchased

This face wash is very gentle, does not burn or irritate my skin. I was skeptical at first about how well it would clean the impurities and dirt after a long workout. When I was done washing my face I used a face tonic on a cotton ball and thought for sure there would be left over dirt and impurities but there was not, the cotton ball was clear. It works amazingly and my skin is soft and clean! I love it

Great, gentle cleanser

I have been using this cleanser for about a month and I love it. With other cleansers, when I apply toner to my skin the cotton ball shows signs of leftover make up after I have cleansed. With Paula's Choice, the cleanser removes all traces of make up in a gentle way that does not irritate my skin.

This is a super mild but effective cleanser. Nice sudsing. Nice neutral smell. A little goes a long way. And the bottle is HUGE!!!!!! The size of many bottles of shampoo. Should last a long, long time. So great value.

Wonderful Product
Purchased

Living in SWFL the weather is always changing, but always somehow reaching hot and sticky which means gross and oily. Love starting my day off with this cleanser and not feeling like a grease pit by noon, and then again before bed my face always feels really fresh and cleansed.

This cleaner is huge!
Purchased

This is enough face wash to last at least a year, maybe more. When I unwrapped the package and saw how large it was I thought there was some mistake.

I love this super gentle cleanser. It is perfect for my extremely sensitive oily skin.

Good cleanser

Good gentle cleanser that won't leave your skin feeling stripped - just clean. I've been using this for three months and have no complaints. It lathers up nicely, has a pleasant neutral smell, and is easy to rinse off.
