Good for Oily Skin
Sampled

I have very oily skin and after one wash it definitely cleared up my face. It didn't strip my skin but just got rid of the dirt and grime on my face. I'm a student-athlete in college and a quality, relatively cheap cleanser that cleans my face is extremely important and this product fit the bill!

Not the greatest scent
Sampled

It's a nice cleanser but it has a very medicinal scent. No love, won't buy.

Smells fresh
Sampled

The smell is fresh and nice, but after I used it my face felt pinched and kind of dry. Don't like it as much as my current product choice.

Fresh, Good Smell

I like using this as a periodic alternative to my regular cleanser. It doesn't leave a film or heavy feeling after. It's pretty fresh!

excellent and gentle cleanser
SampledPurchased

I am a 60+ yr old woman with dry skin, but I am really loving this product! A little dab on the palm lathers into a lovely cleanser and leaves my skin feeling clean, removes all makeup gently, and does not leave the skin tight.
I follow with a toner, serum, and moisturizer and I'm good to go.
thanks Birchbox!
