Very gentle

I didn't get this is my birch box, but I needed a gentle face wash when my skin was being sensitive so I did a bunch of research and found this one. This face wash is very gentle and has a nice natural smell. It doesn't irritate my eyes and is a very milky consistency. My only complaint is that it doesn't take off all of my eye makeup, but when I remove my eye makeup first, then use this, everything looks and feels refreshed and clean. It doesn't tingle, or dry me out. I have drier skin, and this has helped with that. I haven't been breaking out from it, and I have breakouts usually when I change face products so I'm happy with it.

Routine Staple

After my prescription acne face wash started leaving my face dry and irritated, I needed a cleanser that was gentle and soothing enough for my poor skin. I found this product a few years ago and have used it ever since. It is gentle enough to remove eye makeup and does not leave my skin red, dry, or irritated. Except for the occasional zit or pimple here or there, my skin has been happy and healthy while using this product.

Gentle Makeup Remover & Cleanser

I have had trouble finding something to remove eye makeup without burning the eyes. This cleanser worked so well well with or without water. Eventually you should rinse it off, but I put a little on the face, rubbed it in and even used a small amount on the eyes to loosen my eye makeup. And with one soft wipe everything came off and it leaves your face feeling fresh (not oily) but also moisturized. Great stuff!

Love that it takes off my eye makeup

This product does a great job of cleaning my skin - even my eye make up. With most face washes I still have to use an eye make up remover, and always feel like I'm damaging the delicate under eye area by rubbing to get it off. I love that this product takes off my eye make up and I can skip the remover step.

best face wash ever

I have very sensitive skin, and wear a full face of makeup everyday. This cleanser is so gentle yet gets all the gunk off my face. Doesn't leave my skin tight or dry, feels smooth, clean, and comfortable.

Go to morning cleanser!

This is a gentle yet effective cleanser! I use it every morning and I've been very pleased with the results! I also use it a night but rotate with another cleanser. It does an excellent job of removing makeup but doesn't feel too harsh or drying. It's a very mild and gentle formula.
