  • "I loveeeee this face wash!❤ I use this on a daily basis. It really scrubs any leftover makeup or dirty you might have in your pores. It leaves your face with a cool minty feeling. If you have sensitive skin you might want to try a tamer product, but if you are looking for a deep clean then this will do the job! You can find it at any local drugstore ( Walmart, target, dollar store, cvs, etc)" in 137 reviews

I got this product at walmart mainly because I saw so much good reviews about it. This kind of product is usually for people with oily skin because it may dry out your skin, like all anti pimple products do. I used this depsite the fact that i have dry- combination skin and it removed all my white heads. It didnt really dry out my skin much cause I am crazy about moisturizer and skin care routines.

Absolutely loved this product! I highly suggest using this product as an in-shower scrub (2-3 times a week), rather than an everyday facial cleanser or makeup remover. When using the scrub, you can feel the scrub working, with just a tingling feeling on the skin. I also recommend using the Biore charcoal nose strips in relation to this product in order to deeply, and fully clean out those pores.

I love, love, love this product! It not only improved my breakouts, it left my skin feeling extremely soft and radient. My 16 year old son has systic acne and it works wonders for his skin! I've literally spent hundreds of dollars on products for him that barely helped! He uses it EVERYDAY and, if he happens to run out and miss using it a few days, he starts to break out! The great thing is, once he gets more, it literally clears his acne up after a few days!

I used this new cleanser because it includes charcoal which would absorb dirt and clean your face. On top of that it promises to clear Acne. When I used it it had a cooling effect after a few minutes. I could not let it stay too long because it is very minty on the skin. When I washed my face it felt smooth and soft. After a few days I had a little bit of zit peeking around my face. :(

This is a really great mild cleanser. I use it in the morning only. I've only been using it for a few weeks. I feel that my skin is getting a little worse at the moment as the deep cleaning that I've been doing is bringing some impurities to the surface. I will have to use it for longer but I don't think that it is breaking me out as my outbreaks don't correlate to my usage of the product.

I bought this on a whim while strolling down the cleanser isle at Target, and after getting home and trying it, I didn't really think it helped my skin out at all. I of course used it until it was gone, but I never was completely wowed by this product. I do love the biore brand, but this particular product was a miss for me. My blemishes never really cleared up, and that was the whole point in testing out this cleanser.

This product is a little messy, however, it gets the job done! Love this product! I repeatedly use this product about once every two weeks. I love it! The packaging is a little bland. I would most likely purchase this product again.

This works quite well especially for being on the lower end of the skincare price range. My 15 year old Son liked it too. Unfortunately we're both acne prone and both saw some improvement with this.

I bought this a couple weeks ago and it truly does the job! I used to use their Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and I thought that was amazing, but this is even better. When I wash my face with this it gives me such a refreshed feeling. I would definitely recommend this cleanser to people with oily skin, like myself. It keeps my face oily-free – for the most part – throughout the day.
I just started using this product and it started to burn a little bit and my face looks like a tomato; is it suppose to do that? Or is it because my skin isn’t use to it yet?
