Anthony

Birchbox Breakdown

If you live in a beachfront cottage, you can start every day with a nourishing mask of sea kelp. For the rest of us, there’'s this marine face wash. Rich in ingredients sourced from land and sea, it cleanses, calms, and conditions skin of any type. Aloe, rose hip, and algae extract provide a burst of moisture, sooth irritation, and minimize wrinkles, while Azulene and chamomile tame inflammation and lavender acts as an antiseptic.

How to Use

Twice daily, apply a dime-sized amount to damp face and neck. Massage into skin using gentle, circular motions, then rinse thoroughly. While this formula is perfect for dry or sensitive skin, it’s also a perfect match for dry climes and cold winter months.

Excellent, gentle facial wash
Purchased

Great scent - just a hint of citrus to keep things pleasant. It lathers well with a minimal amount of product.

I would like to see a packaging or material change. The bottle feels cheap and stiff and the cap tends to clog quickly with gelled product.

my new favorite shower accessory
SampledPurchased

This cleanser is amazing. It feels incredibly light weight and refreshing. It does not leave the skin feeling dry. I have combination skin and this works wonders! I recently bought the full size. This is my new favorite cleanser!

Fabulous Facial Cleanser!
Purchased

Finally! A cleanser that I love!! It looks thick in the bottle, but slides smoothly all over my face, removing all traces of makeup and leaving my face feeling refreshed, dewy, and soft as a baby's behind. This is great for my sensitive skin. And oh, the smell!! Like Popsicles! Or Dreamsicles! Or just plain dreamy! This is the best cleanser I have ever used. The only negative is that it's hard to get out of the bottle just by pushing the side of the lid to squeeze it out of the slit. I take the cap off to get my dollop of goodness out.

Love this stuff

My roommate used this stuff in college and I inherited half a bottle from him. I fell in love and forget about it until I saw it on birch box so i ordered some. Girlfriend and family love it as well.

Never Using Anything Else
SampledPurchased

I have crazy sensitive skin and this has been the best facewash. I've used it for the past 3 years and nothing has worked better. Everything else I've sampled has made me red or dry or peel. The price is a bit steep but you only need a dime size. It lasts me usually 4 months of twice a day use.

Big Fan
Sampled

Anthony Algae Facial Cleanser is definitely a staple in my cleansing routine. I typically go with a cleanser that exfoliates at night and something a little more gentle in the morning to wake me up. Anthony Algae is just the cleanser to do the job in the AM. It's really gentle and calming on my skin. Birchbox's monthly sample was generous - a little dab of this product goes a long way. When I'm done with my sample, I'll likely scoop this product. I would highly recommend this to you.

I love this stuff!
Purchased

Works as advertised. Very refreshing and does not dry you out. The scent is very pleasant. I use it every other day. And the dry spots of skin on my face that I would get when I was stressed, have completely gone away.

GREAT PRODUCT!

The texture of this cleanser isn't too harsh for sensitive skin. I liked the smooth feeling and it really felt like it cleansed my face and took away all the dirt and oils from my face. I felt refreshed after.

I actually like this stuff. My face feels nice a smooth when I get out of the shower. Will definitely be picking up a bottle for myself. Will also check out their other products.
