This refreshing face wash is a welcome first step. The foaming gel removes oil and dirt, unclogs blocked pores, and brightens your skin, all without drying out your face.

Ended up buying the full bottle. Face and neck felt clean and unburdened. Check out Ursa Major's Face Balm for after the cleaning.

This stuff is the best face wash I have gotten from BirchBox. I have noticed that some of the boxes are hit and miss, but this stuff was by far the best stuff I have gotten from a box. I highly recommend this!

Must Have
SampledPurchased

I initially discovered this product in my monthly birchbox and have since purchased the entire line of face wash, toner, and moisturizer. The face wash foams up nicely with a good amount of water and washes off easily. Leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed. I also LOVE the smell of this product! When using the whole like together my skin feels clean, refreshed, and moisturized to take on the day!

2nd reorder, favorite face wash ATM
SampledPurchased

My favorite face wash at this time. 2nd time ordering. I also use the Ursa Major Toner. This face wash is super nice. Gentle and great scent. Takes a bit of water and hands rubbing to foam up but once it does it provides a good clean feel. Love this stuff and going to continue to use it. Glad I found it. Think I discovered it via a monthly box.

I'm very skeptical about new face washes. This face wash was amazing. It's so refreshing, smells amazing and leaves my skin soft and clean.

Truly fantastic
SampledPurchased

With a clean woodsy scent, this wash is mighty but gentle. It strongly cleans off the rough day, but is gentle enough for everyday use. Worth the waitlist wait if need be.
