Birchbox Breakdown

Every guy needs a workhorse wash: It doesn’t need to be fancy, just effective and easy on your skin—so you can use it everyday. This sink-ledge staple is gentle enough that it won’t strip your skin of moisture, but powerful enough to remove oil and debris.

How it Works

This colorless, odorless face wash is a step-up from drugstore varieties thanks to ingredients like aloe vera, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and ginseng root extract, which helps prevent aging.

How to Use

Massage a small amount of cleanser into damp skin until it forms a gentle lather, then rinse.

I've tried several products, this being my favorite. It's tough and gentle, leaves my face feeling refreshed. And, it's a decent price for the amount.

nice and clean
Purchased

very clean feeling face wash, but doesn't dry out your skin. i like that there is no smell and leaves your face feeling smooth. all you need is about half a pump per use, it lathers up quite well.

Good, but a bit drying
Purchased

I am glad I got this for my daily wash -- it isn't abrasive at all, but I do find it a bit drying on my skin. I also use it with a toner after which still gets dirty. Amazing how dirty your skin is after you clean it. I'd get this with the toner, and then the non-oily moisturizer.

Gets rid of oils, not abrassive.
Purchased

The daily face wash does an excellent job of getting the oils and dirt right off your face. It has a clean, non-overpowering smell and leaves your skin feeling smooth, as opposed to feeling dry like most face washes. I use it before bed to get the days grime off my face. Sweet.

Excellent Face Wash
Purchased

This face wash is excellent. It kept my face blemish free. I would, however, order a scented version next time.

He loves it!
Purchased

My boyfriend is super picky when it comes to skincare and likes to ridicule me about my Birchbox boxes and purchases. Since I've ordered him this face wash, the ridicule has stopped. Its perfect, non-greasy, gentle yet effective. I think we found his new favorite wash!

Gentle and effective
Purchased

So, I'm actually not a guy, but I needed a simple effective face wash. I don't wear makeup, so just basic clean was my goal. This is a great product for me. It is a little "goopy" so lather it up in my hands before washing my face. It does not dry out my skin and rinses clean.

I only use a little bit at a time because it lathers up well, so it will last a long time. This makes it very cost-effective. When I do run out, I will definitely buy again.

Great cleanser
Purchased

After receiving Baxter's scrub in my box I decided to give their face wash a try. Let me say its just great. I dislike some cleansers because of there antiseptic stringent nature. This product is lovely with a creamy texture that cleans as well as moisturizers. If your looking for a new face wash look no further.

Good Product, bad bottle
Purchased

The thing I like the most about this face wash is that it is scent free and does a good job of cleaning without over drying. The bad thing is that the pump at the top wouldn't come unstuck, so I have resorted to unscrewing it and pouring it into my hand. This isn't a BAD thing, but it is a little annoying.
