A product that I return to Birchbox for every time. Was turned on to the brand while living in England and was happy to find a sample of the cleanser in one of my first boxes. Now, I buy the full size product because I cannot live without it! Great for my skin type (sensitive, somewhat oily with occasional dry spots and breakouts).

amazing

this stuff is great. by far the best makeup remover I've ever used. And the best part is, a little bit goes a long way, so a bottle of this should last a very long time.

Not for a dry skin
Sampled

It made my face very tight. Even after moisturizing, I could still feel tightness. It would probably work great on oily skin (actually I passed it on to the friend with oily skin), but it was way too drying for me.

Nice for combination/oily skin
Sampled

I never use soap on my face. I prefer oil cleansers for my skin. I liked this product! It made my face feel clean and smooth, but not stripped of it's natural oils. I would use it again!

Love this cleanser
Sampled

This cleanser is fantastic because it has a light, soft texture to it and lathers up into fine suds that feel very nice and silky on the skin. It also smells fantastic. It's a light, fresh scent that is lovely but not strong or too distinctive. It's wonderful and refreshing to wake up to. It's not a super strong cleanser that strips waterproof makeup off but I use something else at night for that and I love this one in the morning because it's gentle and smells beautiful.

Super gentle
Sampled

This is a fantastic product for gentle, yet effective cleansing. I like to alternate between an acne face wash at night and something very gentle for in the shower in the morning. This product fits the bill for the morning cleanse. It's just a fantastic way to clean and prep my skin for the day.

Great Cleanser

Very nice cleanser. My skin felt very refreshed, clean and smooth. It didn't feel tight after washing which most cleansers seem to do

Pretty good

If I didn't already have a regular brand that I like I might consider buying this. It felt like it wasn't getting my face super clean when I used it but I noticed that I got a lot less oily during the day.

I have combination skin so it is difficult for me to find a cleanser that doesn't leave my skin oily or dry it out. This has been working great! It left my skin feeling smooth and not greasy.
