I had never heard of this brand of face wash before, and I'm typically excited to try new facial cleansers and toners, so I splurged and purchased it. Omg! It was amazing! It has these tiny exfoliators in the cleanser, which make your face feel so smooth and refreshed after using. And it smells like mild cucumbers.....nothing too strong. Also I have hormonal blemishes on occasion, and with the salicylic acid, it helps to keep the blemishes at bay. I love this product and will definitely repurchase. And I highly recommend this to anyone who may have problematic skin. It's gentle, yet still effective. Thank you, Birchbox, for such a great product! So glad I tried it!
