I do like this product and it is quite effective! Definitely good for its price and you can buy it at a lot of places. It does it's job and I like the packaging. I don't think I would buy it again because it isn't super natural but I do recommend.

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.

Never has my face had less blackheads and acne issues than after using this for a weeks. Left my face soft and did not over dry my skin as well. My husband always reminds me to grab this when we run out. 10/10 would recommend this wash to anyone !

My favorite skin care product I've found so far. It exceeded my expectations by far. I was never able to find a product that didn't dry my skin out more but skill kept my outbreaks and blackheads to a minimum. I would highly recommend to everyone!

I've been using this products for a few weeks and it's actually made me breakout more often. I'm a bit frustrated so I guess I'll have to try something else. I do like the tingling feeling it gives me but I will just have to look for something else.

This product is good and i picked it up because i love the biore peel off charcoal mask and i thought this would be as great and i am happy i got this product, however this is a bit drying and my skin is already dry and i need a really good moisturizer!

After using this product for a few months I would say this product is not for you if you have very dry skin, while this worked excellently it left my skin feeling dry, if you have combination/oily skin i would definitely recommend this product.

I literally swear by this product! I used to have horrible acne for a while and when I started using this product it cleared it right up almost instantly! The packaging is great and I buy mine at Walmart. It does however dry out my skin occasionally but it does work wonders so it's okay!

I really love this . It's amazing . I wet my face with hot water to open my pores . Then massage this on my face and leave it on my face for a little . While I'm waiting I brush my teeth then after that I wash it off my face. Then put a cold rag on my face to close my pores. It's amazing
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?

i've been using this for two days and it dries my skin out SO horribly, is it supposed to do that?

Is it normal after the first few days to break out which I usually never do? And I woke up today and my face feels like there's little bumps all over, you can't see it but you can feel it. Is this normal and my skin getting used to it? Or a bad reaction and I should stop?
