Smells so nice!
Sampled

I love the scent of this face wash! Though it says it's for acne prone skin, I have relatively dry skin and don't have issues with overdrying when I use this once a day. This is a really nice, simple and great smelling face wash.

Perfecto!
Sampled

I have super duper sensitive skin! Most cleansers are just too hard for me. I usually don't cleanse my face with anything other than water and witch hazel. However, sometimes that's just not enough. I'm happy to have had the chance to try this! I love it and I can use it without worrying about inflammation! Thanks Birchbox! Now you just need to get more in stock so I can buy it!

I really like this sample, i have used it about ten times so far and still have half a sample bottle you do not have to use much of it and it smells really good.

Excellent!!
Sampled

I have oily prone skin, this has been leaving my face feeling so soft and clean. I don't have any greasy feeling to my face after using, but it doesn't feel stripped either. A little goes a long way. I will definitely be purchasing this product after my sample is gone. It hasn't made me break out at all, if anything it's been clearing my face up! Love it!

Good Cleanser

This is a good cleanser, but nothing special. I already use a similar product I am happy with.

Pretty good
Sampled

Wasn't too sure about the product, but tried it a couple of times and really like it. I do have more oily skin, so it didn't dry my face out at all. Feels clean and soft. I'd rather use this than the facial towelettes I have been using.

Good face wash

I enjoyed this product, it smelled really great! I love that the sample is travel sized! It went straight into my gym bag after my first use! My face felt fresh and not at all oily which can be a problem for me sometimes!

Nice but not great cleanser
Sampled

This worked well and left my face clean and soft. It also has a fresh, clean scent. I think I were to use this in the winter it would be a little drying and best saved for summer.

great, gentle cleanser
Sampled

I loved that this cleanser was gentle yet still very effective. My face gets super dry with too harsh a cleanser, so I find I'm often left either with flaky skin or bits of makeup still lingering, and my face was fresh and soft after using this!
