A couple of times a week, swap out this cleanser for Kyoku for Men Exfoliating Facial Scrub, which uses natural ingredients like ash, walnut shells, bean powder, and rice bran to slough off dead skin cells.

Kyoku for Men

Birchbox Breakdown

Guys' skin is 70% oilier than our female counterparts'—which is why we need a cleanser that’s especially tough on dirt and oil. Harnessing a host of ancient Japanese ingredients, this powerful face wash unclogs pores, removes grime, promotes cell regeneration, and protects against environmental damage. No wonder it won a Men’s Health Grooming Award in 2012.

How it Works

Exfoliating citric acid removes dirt and oil while preventing future breakouts. Peppermint and ginseng energize skin, and sunflower oil keeps it hydrated.

How to Use

Apply a pea-size amount of cleanser to damp skin and massage into a gentle lather. Rinse with warm water.

Purchased

This product goes a long way. It has now replaced my previous facial cleanser. Doesn't dry your skin out as much as other convenient store brands and is definitely a more quality product. You get what you pay for, and when it comes to your face I don't mind shelling out some extra money over your local rite-aid or CVS stock.

Great Smell, doesn't dry out

I got this for Christmas this year it lasted about six months doing once a day washes. This scent of this is intoxicating its like peppermint and latex and I mean that in the best possible way. It works greats, doesn't dry out I definitely recommend it.
