Birchbox Breakdown

Acne-fighting cleansers have a tendency to take their aggression out on more than just blemishes, resulting in angry, dried-out skin. Before you start World War Z (that’s z for “zit”), keep the peace with this acne-fighting face wash. Packed with all-natural, antibacterial ingredients, it gently removes built-up oil and debris to help unclog pores and clarify skin, all while reducing redness and healing breakouts.

How to Use

Pour a small amount of cleanser onto dampened hands and apply to a wet face and throat. Work into a deep cleansing lather, concentrating on areas of congestion and oiliness, and rinse.

Active ingredient: salicylic acid 2.0% Inactive ingredients: purified water (aqua), disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, cocamidopropylamine oxide, peg-150 distearate, polysorbate 20, glycerin, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, lavandula officinalis (lavender) oil, aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) oil, salix alba (white willow) bark extract, organic chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract* (.5%), decyl glucoside, potassium sorbate, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin.

Prevents Acne and Is All Natural
Purchased

I was looking for an all natural/vegan face wash, that would still help keep breakouts from happening. I saw this on birchbox.com and decided to give it a try. Even though it is a bit more pricey than drug store face wash it is TOTALLY WORTH THE $. I have been using this almost every day for a few months now. I noticed less (almost 0 ) pimples or zits or even blackheads. Skin looks smooth and clear, and it is not overly drying. Also, even though I use this 1-2x a day for 3 months, I still have more left in the bottle. I am sold on the derma e brand and want to try more of their products.

Derma-e is SERIOUSLY INCREDIBLE
Purchased

So, I received the Brightening Cleanser and saw an quick difference in my skin. I decided to try the Brightening serum, which helped to get rid of some of my acne scars and dark spots. I'M IN LOVE with this brand... I've since ordered the Acne Cleanser and the Brightening Day Cream. I've been alternating between cleansers and use the serum and cream every night. It's really done wonders for my skin.

Can't spell sylisilic but you know what I mean. Great stuff, even for my older skin. I use it once a week.

Skin Saver!
Purchased

I purchased this cleanser thinking it would be nice to have something with tea tree oil already in it, instead of putting a drop on my palm every time I washed my face-and honestly, I forgot half the time. It does smell very strongly of tea tree oil, but personally I like the smell, so it doesn't bother me much. It's a great cleanser to use alone or with my Clarisonic, because there are no beads or exfoliants in it. It has a really thick consistency, so you don't need much to get it working. My skin has definitely benefited from the 1-2 punch of tea tree oil and salicylic acid! My breakouts are much less frequent and they clear up more quickly. I will definitely be buying this again!

My Hero

My skin has been through many bouts of intense acne throughout the years. I ended up purchasing this cleanser on a whim when I was out of town and realized I hadn't packed any face wash. Many of the ingredients I knew were good for fighting acne, and I liked that it is all natural. I figured why not try it, nothing else has worked.

Fast forward several weeks, and I can't say enough good things about this stuff. Wow! It really works! My skin has cleared up so much that I am now able to focus on evening out my skin tone. I never thought I'd be able to move past the acne to focus on tackling other things to make my skin look perfect. If you want an inexpensive product that actually works, seriously it does, buy this product!

Finally!
Purchased

I have struggled with breakouts for years. I have tried 15+ different treatments. This has been by fair the best. I find not only did it clear up my breakouts but it prevents new one. And I feel like my skin is less oily as well. And it's got a nice scent and good texture.

Derma Acne Cleanser
Purchased

I derma Very Clear Acne Cleanser was purchased for my teenage daughter. She loves the smell of the cleanser and it seems to be working well for her athletic skin which breaks out after workouts. I will be purchasing again for her since we like the all natural ingredients. It has really helped her skin and confidence.

First time trying this.
Purchased

For months I've been looking for a product that would not only get rid of the oil on my skin but also control my frequent breakouts. I've been on everything from Clinique to proactive. I tried this for the first time and noticed how soft it left my skin and already noticed one of my cysts was starting to go down. Can't wait to see how my skin looks like in weeks or even months. Will definitely be buying these products again.
