Anthony

Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve long known that men’s razors are superior to women’s so it was only a matter of time before we started dabbling in male-centric skincare products as well. Anthony’s creamy cleanser was designed to give men smaller pores and clearer sin with minimal work — which is exactly why we like it too. Gentle enough to use daily, the non-foaming formula has glycolic acid to get rid of dead skin, which can lead to clogged pores, dullness, and breakouts.

How it Works

The main ingredient is glycolic acid, a natural exfoliating agent that does away with dead skin cells. Vitamins A, E, and C help even out any roughness, while aloe vera and calendula calm down irritation.

How to Use

Use in the mornings and evenings on damp skin. Squeeze a quarter-sized amount into hands and massage the cleanser into the skin using circular motions for about 30 seconds. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Really minimal scent, washes clean
Purchased

Love this stuff, very minimal scent, great texture, washes off clean and doesn't have a funny scent after. Perfect for my morning face wash.

Fine product
Purchased

I'm sure this is a great product, but I fight off blemishes if not taken care of, and this doesn't do the trick.

Overall, very pleased!
Purchased

This did amazing things for my skin, and I've only been using for a week, but my acne-prone skin has really cleared up.

It doesn't lather, but I'm ok with that.

It also does not leave my face completely clean and free of makeup. Using a toner would work, though I usually just use my microfiber towel to wipe my face dry and it's better than toner. (Aquis waffle-weave, I've had it for 10+ years.) I'm a makeup-wearing woman, but if you're a guy and don't wear makeup, I'm sure this part is not a huge concern.

It must work!

My boyfriend lives and dies by having this cleanser on hand. It keeps his face clear, never seen a blemish! I may even have to start using it...

I'm one of the girls that stole the man's facewash.
Purchased

Yep, stole this from the man. Don't worry, I ordered him more...because I was running out.
This is just what my acne-prone combination skin needs. It keeps me clear and clean and feels tingly. It's a gentle exfoliant and is realyl good at preventing breakouts by keepin the pores clear. I use it with my Clairsonic face brush, and it does the job better than most cleansers I've tried. I ordered "us" a full size. I might share.
PS: The oily skin kind smells a bit citrusy, which I don't really love, but that's my own issue. It's not unpleasant.
