Control Corrective

Birchbox Breakdown

If you’re considering collecting rent from those freeloading whiteheads and blackheads taking up residence on your skin, you might want to consider investing in this salicylic wash. The concentrated cream helps scrub away dead cells and other pore-blocking debris to uncover a clearer, smoother texture.

How it Works

Salicylic acid is the magic component in this gentle-yet-effective face and body wash. The active ingredient dissolves dead skin buildup without robbing you of natural oils.

How to Use

Dispense a dime-sized amount of the gel-cream onto wet hands. Massage into a foamy consistency on face and body wherever needed. Rinse away with warm water. Best for normal, oily, or combination skin.

Water, Aloe Barbadensis Lead Juice, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, PPG-2 Hydroxyethyl Coco/Isostearamide (Promidium 2-LQ), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Methylisothiazolinone

One of the best!

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!

Best ever

I've made many bad decisions over the past 30 years of make-up choices, which left me with large pores and acne. I've used this product for two weeks and what a HUGH difference. I have sensitive skin and it is gentle while still doing the job without drying, my skin is soft and the pores on my chin and nose are visible smaller. I plan on purchasing other products in this line, so happy that I recommend it to others when asked what I'm using because as others have said "you look younger". So happy!
