  • "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

This face wash makes my skin feel refresh and clean. The charcoal ones are the best to use. It's you feeling refreshed. I also love their baking soda face wash too.

This face product really works to exfoliate and clean your skin. It's great value and not too pricey, only about $2-5. I bought mine at Walmart. This is my first time using it but once I run out i'll definitely buy again.

Sucks the living oil out of your face! It has a tea tree effect where your face feels minty, so if you like that after feeling, this is definitely one for you to try!

This product worked wonders on my face I've had pretty bad acne for quite some time now, but this product surprisingly helped reduce my acne pretty quickly and it's very refreshing to use.

I really enjoy this product. My skin always feels fresh and clean after using it. I have noticed that my pores appear smaller and are less clogged. It has also helped with oil control

This product is great for my acne prone oily skin. I helps clear up my skin but can be a little drying after use so I recommend a moisturizer. I wouldn’t recommend this for dry skin but definitely for oily skin.

Would 100% recommend, you feel this product working within seconds! Has great texture as well as smells great. Leaves your face feeling very clean and fresh but doesn't dry your skin out like other acne products.
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?
