Birchbox Breakdown

Acne-fighting cleansers have a tendency to take their aggression out on more than just blemishes, resulting in angry, dried-out skin. Before you start World War Z (that’s z for “zit”), keep the peace with this acne-fighting face wash. Packed with all-natural, antibacterial ingredients, it gently removes built-up oil and debris to help unclog pores and clarify skin, all while reducing redness and healing breakouts.

How to Use

Pour a small amount of cleanser onto dampened hands and apply to a wet face and throat. Work into a deep cleansing lather, concentrating on areas of congestion and oiliness, and rinse.

Active ingredient: salicylic acid 2.0% Inactive ingredients: purified water (aqua), disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, cocamidopropylamine oxide, peg-150 distearate, polysorbate 20, glycerin, melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, lavandula officinalis (lavender) oil, aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) oil, salix alba (white willow) bark extract, organic chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract* (.5%), decyl glucoside, potassium sorbate, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin.

Prevents Acne and Is All Natural
Purchased

I was looking for an all natural/vegan face wash, that would still help keep breakouts from happening. I saw this on birchbox.com and decided to give it a try. Even though it is a bit more pricey than drug store face wash it is TOTALLY WORTH THE $. I have been using this almost every day for a few months now. I noticed less (almost 0 ) pimples or zits or even blackheads. Skin looks smooth and clear, and it is not overly drying. Also, even though I use this 1-2x a day for 3 months, I still have more left in the bottle. I am sold on the derma e brand and want to try more of their products.

Derma-e is SERIOUSLY INCREDIBLE
Purchased

So, I received the Brightening Cleanser and saw an quick difference in my skin. I decided to try the Brightening serum, which helped to get rid of some of my acne scars and dark spots. I'M IN LOVE with this brand... I've since ordered the Acne Cleanser and the Brightening Day Cream. I've been alternating between cleansers and use the serum and cream every night. It's really done wonders for my skin.

Love it!
Purchased

I've become a fan-girl of dermaE over the past few months and my adoration just increases with every product I try and/or use. This is an incredible acne face wash! I've been using it only a short time and already see and feel a difference. It leaves your face feeling cleaned, acne-forming bacteria-free, but NOT tight - there's no over-drying feeling, just clean and fresh. Big fan.

I recently tried this acne cleaner and I really like it. It got rid of the oil without leaving my face feeling dry and flaky. It helped in reducing redness.

Not bad
Purchased

The price isn't bad. I haven't seen any difference just yet, but I am hopeful. I definitely like not having to pay over $30 for a cleanser. I feel like all acne cleansers are pretty much the same as it has the same ingredients like salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide.

Results are just "ok"...so far
Purchased

I've been using this for 2 weeks, and I haven't seen dramatic results. Scent is very strong, but that is normal with tea tree and lavender oils. Usually antibacterial cleansers work well for me, and I am trying to avoid triclosan and switch to more natural antibacterial ingredients. It hasn't improved my blemish problems (blemishes are still there, no better, no worse), but I do agree that it helps reduce redness and my skin is less oily. It can be drying, but I always use moisturizer after cleansing anyway. Hopefully this product just needs more time with my skin.
