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 it Works

This powerful yet soothing cleanser contains a custom anti-blemish complex made up of ingredients like tea tree, willow bark, rosewood, lavender, and chamomile. Together, they have natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties that help treat blemishes, calm inflamed skin, and control oil production to prevent future breakouts. Like all derma e products, it is 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free, as well as free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, lanolins, gluten, and GMOs.

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.

Acne face wash without the over drying. The botanicals help calm and inflammation from breakouts and does not over dry.

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.

Not a very foamy cleanser
Purchased

This cleanser didn't lather very much for me. I know lather doesn't necessarily equal cleansing power, but it left me feeling underwhelmed. The scent was nice and light though!

A little smelly
Purchased

So far so good for this product but it does have a very distinct smell that is not great. Smells like a dog tick treatment to me. If it keeps my skin clear, I can live with it.

Pretty Good
Purchased

I like how this cleanser leaves my face feeling fresh and not oily. I have been using about a week and haven't noticed a huge difference in acne but I'm am noticing a difference with my overall skin. My face was itchy at first, especially in the non oily areas, but eventually got used to the soap and feels much better now. I am satisfied with the face wash but I do use in combination with other products to prevent acne.

super soft, nondrying
Purchased

I normally have to alternate face soaps - they always either dry my skin too bad or leave it too greasy. This however I have been using all week and my face feels really balanced. I have very sensitive skin and this has not broke me out at all, in either hives or pimples. I like how soft it's making my face too! I'm not crazy about the strong smell, but it doesn't linger and is worth it. Highly recommended!

Not drying!!!

I use this product on my pre-teen daughter who has very fair and sensitive skin. It has helped manage the black and white heads she has been getting and its has not dried her skin at all.

This is a great cleanser for blemish prone skin. It helps keep my skin clear and washes away dirt, sweat and shame. lol. I use this maybe every other day along with the moisturizer to keep my skin balanced. I
