  • "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

Great cleanser. Leaves me feeling fresh and clean. Not much is needed to wash your face. It's lightly scented and foams nicely. The cleanser rinses off easily so you don't feel any residue. Highly recommend.

I LOVE this product. It's affordable and easily available; I picked mine up at Walmart. The charcoal gets deep into your pores and clears them out, and it smells great. I've used Biore's products before, but this cleanser is seriously one of my favorites. It minimized, if not fully cleared out my blackheads, and leaves my face glowing. It's amazing!

Feels clean! Very refreshing & icy/cool feeling! I thought it was very effective and got the job done! I have used this for 1 month on vacation & bought it from Walmart, I’d buy it again for sure!

This is my go to cleanser. It doesn't dry my face out and is very gentle. My skin feels fresh and clean a great value for the price and can be purchased at any drug store. I've tried more expensive brands and this does the trick just as well. Definitely recommend!

This is the only facial cleaning product that has actually helped my skin. I have incredibly dry skin, and nothing seems to clean it too well, or help it to be hydrated. This product is perfect.

I love this product! It's perfect for oily skin. It gives me a cool cold sensation when applying and after washing my face, my skin feels very clean and fresh. I didn't notice anything different abou my acne, but I don't have a lot and honestly didn't even stop to really notice. The packaging is perfect for a face wash, you can leave it in your bathroom as one pump is enough product for your face and neck. It's cheap and lasts for a good time. Very easy to find, bought it at Walmart.

It's a great cleanser but it just isn't for me. I guess it's just my skin or the reaction with other products I used with it but my skin ended up being oily after using this for a month.

It works great. Clears my acne fast in 1to 2 days. But you have to be careful how close it gets to your eye the scent or ingredients are strong and can sting your eyes even if the product doesnt touch your eye. It leave my skin dry. I accidentally got thw orange lable instead of the green lable which leaves my skin soft but if it drys up a zit really fast Im ok with dry skin just use a good moisturizer. You can use this on with your body wash if you have back acne to get zit of those zits.
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?
