WINTER ADVISORY: Brown + Coconut crafts plant-powered skin care using only the most necessary ingredients. As such, we opted not to include ingredients in our Balancing Cleanser that prevent the product from separating or reacting to the cold. The same way coconut oil hardens in cooler temperatures or fresh squeezed OJ separates, our cleanser may separate or crystallize in the cold. This is normal and the product is still okay to use. Should your cleanser have arrived frozen, simply thaw it out by placing the bottle near a heat source (be careful not to melt the plastic cover). Once thawed, shake the bottle. Happy washing!

Watermelon  |  Juniper Berry

Formulated with purifying botanical extracts, our lightly foaming face wash is gentle enough to cleanse the skin without disturbing its delicate balance, yet powerful enough to remove surface impurities. Nourishing oils like watermelon, juniper berry, and hemp seed soothe irritation, banish blemishes, and restore and maintain harmony in normal, oily, and dry skin.

pH level: 4.5 to 5.5

Packaged in 4 oz. glass bottle. Use within 6 months.
Separation is natural. Shake if needed. Crystallization may occur when stored in cool or cold environments. The cleanser is still okay to use when crystals are present.

    I have been using Proactive™ for the past ten years and have been afraid to use anything else. I tried this face wash because I love the girls at brown & coconut and I just had a feeling they were on to something. This is now my go-to face wash. The natural, simple ingredients feel so wonderful on my skin. When I use it in combination with the hibiscus cleansing grains, I can’t help but smile because I can feel it working and it feels so good! Great job, ladies. I can’t wait to see what other products you develop (hint, hint, shampoo and conditioner!)

  2. Ify Izuchi

    First, I thank you ladies for these natural products. I have used many products trying to find my comfort and at my age it has been a while. Finally here are these products by Brown & Coconut!!
    I have now thrown out my makeup remover, simply use the everyday face wash and every makeup gone!! My face left so clean and soft and all I can do is smile. The Kale mask is incredible and all is natural without chemicals? Ladies out there. young, old and in-between try these products and you will not be disappointed! I am waiting for your next product Brown & Coconut.

  3. Jennifer Brax

    Bought the kale mask and got free samples of the everyday cleanser and hibiscus grains. I love them all! They smell beautiful and leave your skin feeling totally refreshed. So glad I tried their products.

    Having very dry skin, I enjoy browning coconut’s face wash as it cleans without making my skin more dry. Love it!

  5. Theresa

    Before I started using this face wash, I couldn’t skip washing my face in the morning because my skin was always oily. I thought oily skin in the morning was normal until I switched to this natural face wash and realized that my skin was over producing oil because of the active chemicals that were in my cleansers. I’ve been using this face wash just about every day for the past 6 months and my skin has never been this oil free. For a natural product, it lathers super well and smells amazing!! Never plan on using anything else.

    I LOVE this facial wash. I was introduced to it by my friend Julz. I have combination skin so by evening time my face is a bit oily. This wash leaves my skin feeling so smooth and soft. I prefer face washes that leave a ‘stripped’ feeling especially in the warmer months and this does just the trick without leaving me dried out. In the winter months, I just follow up with the hydrating face oil after toning and let it do it’s magic overnight. I’m on my 3rd bottle of this stuff. (Oh, and it smells like a lemon drop to boot!)

  7. Abby

    Obsessed. This face wash smells so good and works super well! I love knowing I’m nourishing my skin with natural ingredients (that actually work)!

  8. Rach (verified owner)

    Great product! I decided to make my skin care routine more minimalist after using Rodan and Fields and not seeing the results I wanted. With this face wash (and their face mask) and a simple face oil, that’s all I need! My skin is returning to a more balanced state. After 4 months of using this nearly every day, I can definitely say I love it!

    • Brown & Coconut

      Thank you for your kind words, Rachel! We’re thrilled that your skin is thriving on a minimalist routine and are so happy to hear you’re loving your Brown & Coconut products! 🙂

  9. Carolyn

    This face wash has been my beauty savior. My whole life I’ve suffered from skin that is a little too sensitive. Almost all face cleansers have caused me to have red and irritated skin. Every once in a while I would get a month out of a product and then suddenly I’d have another bad reaction. Not any more. After months and months of use my skin is healthier than it has ever been AND it works quickly to get all the makeup off. Bless you both for gifting the world with your face wash.

    • Brown & Coconut

      Carolyn, we absolutely couldn’t be happier to hear that you are enjoying the face wash and your skin is now healthier! Happy washing! 🙂

    I am in love with this cleanser (as well as the face oil). It smells so good and is so gentle yet very effective. I use it morning and evening and it’s just so enjoyable. Cannot recommend enough! I can’t wait to try all the other products.
