I enjoyed this product. It stings quite a bit when applying it but it definitely works. I change products quite a bit because my skin gets used to products and won’t work anymore. This product is actually helpful with my acne.

This product is amazing especially if you like the smell of mint and being refreshed! I use this face wash every morning and night. My pores have gone away or well are less visible. It's an amazing product it'll leave you're face smooth and the smell is amazing 10/10

I LOVE this product, it smells amazing and really helps unclog my pores, it is a very gentle cleanser that gets rid of blemishes and reduces oil on the skin. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with acne!

At first, this product helped clear a few of my breakouts, but after a few weeks, this product left me splotchy and red. Don’t think this product works well with my body, but I definitely recommend other products by this brand

Feels very firming which is nice but it feels almost too drying on the skin that I feel my skin over produces more oil to counter act the drying of the cleanser which is what I do not want. But I does leave my skin very clean.

I absolutely love this product! If you have acne prone or oily skin I suggest you try this product out. Although I wouldn't use it daily because it will or may dry out your skin a bit, it depends on your skin type. I suggest to use it every other day or twice a week.

This product was nice and cleansing. For the price you really cannot go wrong with it! I reach for this almost every night! The only draw back is it is almost too drying on my skin. Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
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?
