Birchbox Breakdown

A good cleanser is the backbone of any skincare regimen—but every now and then, your skin needs a deeper cleaning. Enter this supereffective exfoliating mask. It draws out impurities, sloughs off dead skin cells, and tightens skin tone in less time than it takes to watch an episode of Girls.

How to Use

Glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that penetrates the skin and weakens the lipids that contribute to the build up of dead skin cells, teams up exfoliating malic acid, as well as phytic acid, which reduces hyperpigmentation and inflammation, and lactic acid, which tackles acne. Essential oils—including olive oil, sweet almond oil, and lemon oil—moisturize and balance skin tone.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews


I just ordered this with the help of my Birchbox points. I've been able to use it three times and I am in LOVE. I have fair, slightly sensitive skin that is both aging and prone to breakouts (fun), and after a pimple I tend to have a red mark that remains for months. I was looking for a product that could help tighten and brighten my skin, exfoliate, and help with unsightly marks, so this seemed to fit the bill - particularly as I've had good luck with glycolic acid in skincare products in the past. I tried this as soon as it came. I was dubious - it's a thick gray, gritty paste with a chemical smell, and it warms as soon as you put it on - no doubt you're using a serious product right away! I left it on for the recommended 10 minutes, then wet it, rubbed it around to exfoliate, and rinsed off. Immediately my skin was smoother, brighter, and softer than before. I waited two days and tried it again yesterday. Today, I woke up and examined my skin in the mirror - I'm stunned at how smooth and even my skin appears, how many red marks are minimized or entirely gone, and how soft my skin remains. I look like I've been on a superfood diet for weeks. Love!

Great product for my combination skin

My nose and chin are very oily and prone to troubled skin. This mask used one a week or so really helps to keep my skin clear and clean! I don't use the mask on my dry cheeks and forehead because it's very good at its job and can be drying. But I'm planning to repurchase this as soon as I can. Love it so much!

Does something

After using this, my skin definitely feels like it's been stripped of the bad and left with the good. THOUGH, I definitely need a good moisturizer after using it.

Great mask

I use this mask about once a week and think it's great! It definitely does a deep cleansing on my skin and leaves it feeling so smoothe after!
