I use this face wash every other day and it has become my ride or die I enjoy the cooling effect that comes with it and I may be strange but I actually like the smell. It helps prevent more breakouts and I know I definitely need that..

I have used all kinds of cleansers. Then I discovered Biore Charcoal Acne clearing cleanser. My face used to be oily all the time, even 10 minutes after I washed my face, but now my face is clean, no oil and healthier than ever before! I will never try another cleanser again.

I can say it did work but after a week I feel like my skin got use to it and it stop being as useful but it did make my face feel soft. I purchased mines at a local Walmart. I would buy the travel sized version not as big of a bottle.

This is the best facial cleanser I have ever owned. Doesn't leave my skin feeling dry after (although a little tight so definitely suggest moisturizer after). My skin has never been clearer and would definitely recommend to others!

I gave this product a 3 ⭐️ because it really didn’t help with the small acne problem as I thought it would like any other charcoal masks. I don’t think I would purchase this and not only didn’t it help but it made my skin super dry.

Used this for a very short time. Felt that it was a little bit too harsh on my skin. Liked the packaging and the fact that it had a pump, also smelled good! I have dry skin for I think this might be better for someone with oily skin

I just started using this after watching reviews online. So far so good. It goes on smoothly and leaves a clean, refreshing feeling! I have not had any reaction to it so far, but it does make me feel clean and refreshed afterwards!

It didn’t really dried my face out. It smells good and leaves a good feeling but after I used it for awhile, my face felt almost like leather. I didn’t really like it. It didn’t really help my acne. Just made it feel okay for awhile.

this product leaves your skin minty fresh and it feels so smooth before AND after application. i was beyond satisfied with this products. ive used many of the different cleansers but i always seem to come back to this one. i would recommend to anyone with non-sensitive skin.
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?
