  • "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 love this product. Make you feel like your getting down to the dirt that lodged in your pores. But it is very gentle on the skin. The price is good for the quality that your getting. But as far as room for improvement I haven't had anything better.

I seriously cannot say how much I truest love this product. It helps keep my face clean and clear and doesn't dry it out. I usually get mine from meijer or Target. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. However, do use a moisturizer afterwards!

This activated charcoal cleanser at first seemed amazing and left my face feeling quite clean. I used it in the shower and it felt warm and left my face feeling clean and it seemed to help my oily complexion. However after a week it began mildly irritating my skin leaving it red after each use.

This product really dried out my skin and caused my face to burn and flake. I couldn't more than three days a week. I don't consider myself to have hypersensitive skin, but it might not be so strong to others. I personally would not purchase it again.

Used this product for a couple of days. It burned so much when I put it on my face.. have to wash it off fast. It makes my face feel clean and soft but I hate the fact that it burn so much. Will recommend to people who doesn't have sensitive skin.

I love the way this makes my skin feel when I use it. I love products that have that tingling sensation, it then feels like it is really cleaning the face. This product does an awesome job of removing the blackheads without excessive scrubbing.

Charcoal scrubs are my favorite and aside from lush this might be one of my favorites . Eye catching packaging and I bought at Walmart . Have only bought it once but I will buy again. If you struggle with dulled and combination skin I suggest this !
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?
