Birchbox Breakdown

Face wash is the backbone of your skincare regimen, but an ordinary cleanser won'’t tackle the layers of dead skin cells that build up over time——and make skin look dull. Enter this multi-purpose formula. Part lathering cream, part gentle scrub, it’ cuts through oil and grime while clearing the way for new, healthy skin cells and lifting facial hair for a smoother shave. Packed with nourishing vitamins, it could almost be called an overachiever...almost.

Great product
Purchased

Have enjoyed using this product prior to shaving. Have noticed an improvement in the quality of prepping for my shave in helping to eliminate ingrown hairs and razor bumps.

Can't use around eye area

I like the feel of this face wash, but don't like the fact that it can't be used around the eye area, as stated in the directions.

Great face wash!
Purchased

My boyfriend likes this face wash because it helps get rid of dry flaky skin and his face really feels clean and soft after he uses it. He thinks it's too expensive to buy for himself since it is face wash. However, I'm happy to do it through Birchbox since I get extra benefits too.

Multi-action face wash w/ exfolitation

So, this is a 'guy's product' and I'm not a gut, but my husband is just never gonna use this, and well, I'm always looking for a good every-day cleanser.

Other folks (guys) have pointed out that since this has an exfloiant in it that it wouldn't be for everyday use, and I would have to agree. Even though whatever is being used to 'scrub' is quite tiny, I couldn't find an ingredient list for whatever those bits are...almond shells? Rocks? Pplastic? Who knows...but I sure would like to.

The packaging says it's unscented, but I found notes of whiskey, grass and mint. There is a slight tingle after using it, so there must be some sort of menthol.

If your man is the out-doorsy type this is for him....the exfoliants will slough off sun-dried, wind chapped skin, heavy machinery lube, mighty redwood saw dust and SPF. I think he'll smell like Earnest Hemingway after.

Excellent!

I really like this stuff, it's a great exfoliant, grainy in a good way, but comes out of the tube easy unlike some others of the same kind. Face feels very clean afterwards and skin feels softer as well. I use dove face wash in the morning in the shower, which is good, and lab series at night before bed to get the days grime and oil off my face. Now I don't feel like I've washed my face without it! 5 stars all the way

Awesome Scrub AND Wash

I received this as a free sample and am very pleased with it. Trust me when I say a little dot of this stuff goes a long, long way. It didn't come with instructions on use but it's as simple as scrubbing it into your face and rinsing. After my initial scrub I wet my hands with some hot water and continued to scrub the rest of my face to extend the amount of product I used. Smell is solid too. Very likely will buy this as a full sized tube may last me months of not a full year.

Great Wash!

This is a wonderful 2 in 1 wash! It gives you the benefit of a scrub but also leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed!

My husband loves it.
Purchased

Sometimes it's hard to get your bf or husband to commit to a face regimen like we do. But he's actually really good about using this everyday because it's kept his combo skin from breaking out. It's made a def difference so for Christmas I've bought the all in one and after shave moisturizer. He loves this brand.
