Birchbox Breakdown

We get it: face wash usually seem to do more harm than good, leaving skin dry, red, and irritated. But that’s not so with this mild gel cleanser from hip brand stila. Even after you’ve rinsed your face, its formula works all day to keep pores moisturized and your skin looking bright.

How it Works

Essential oils and natural beta-glucan help reduce puffiness, while gentle sulfate-free cleansers make for a mild formula that’s safe to use on sensitive skin. Botanical extracts help nourish and even skin tone. Bonus: the formula also removes makeup.

How to Use

Use once or twice daily before moisturizing. Wet face and apply a dime-size amount to face. Scrub gently using circular motion and rinse thoroughly. Pat dry with a towel.

Squeaky clean
Purchased

This face wash is great because it leaves my skin feeling extra clean but not tight or dry. It has a fresh scent and works into a nice (but not overwhelming) lather. This is an effective daily face wash- highly recommend it!

Love

It really does what it says. It makes your face totally clean the first time you use it. All makeup is wiped off the first time no more black left under the eyes.

My daily cleaner
Purchased

I use this as my daily cleaner. I remove my eye makeup first, and then use this for the rest of my face. It has a refreshing feeling, almost like there's peppermint in it. It's not burning, but a tingling cool feeling. I love it. It also doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry.

Good for combination or oily skin

I decided to try this because my other (more expensive) face wash was leaving me too oily and I wasn't able to use my face cream without looking too shiny! After just two days, I noticed that my usually visible pores were not so visible and I felt my face was cleaner than ever before and wasn't too oily, even with my face cream on top! That being said, I don't think this would be ideal for someone with dry skin.

Perfection

By far the best face wash I've ever used. Doesn't leave my skin feeling dry, just refreshed. Its now a staple in my nightly routine.

One of my new favorite cleansers.

Gentle and mild but provides a great clean. And the smell is amazing! My face feels completely refreshed after a wash with this cleanser.

Didn't Tingle enough
Purchased

I think this face wash is very similar to many other gel cleansers. There isn't anything extraordinary and I wish the minty sent was stronger and had more of a tingle.

So great!
Purchased

Cleans without drying out your skin. Great for use with a sonic-type cleansing brush. Nice smell without being too perfumy.

Sample was too small

I can't really tell if I liked this product. The sample was so small that you can't really get a good opinion on just one use.

It did smell nice and my face didn't react, so I guess that was a plus.

Cleans without overdrying

I love this face wash. It foams nicely and doesn't dry out my skin. Nice and gentle and the smell is refreshing!
