I am in love with this product, I use it everyday. It really cleanses and makes my skin feel so soft and silky. I have a lot of acne on my forehead and this really helps clear it. I recommend for everyone to have this.

I went to Walmart to just grab some facial products and decided to try this out and I really did like this product. It wasn't very expensive and can be used for a quick day to day exfoliating and I would buy it again.

I have been using biore products for the past 10+ years. It is the only brand that managed to keep my acne at bay! The cleansers should also be used with a facial lotion though! They tend to make my skin a little dry.

Personally I did not like this product because one it made me break out even more and I honestly expected more from this product and I certainly would not buy it again I have normal to oily skin so I thought this would help it just personally made it worse

I love using this product when I'm in the shower Bc it has helped to eliminate my acne from my face. First time using it & it was very gentle just like other Bioré products. I'd totally buy it again & chances are that I will!

This is a great product for oily skin, large pores and blackheads. I use this product often and I think it does a great job, but I have had some more effective products. No harsh smells and a great price makes it a fab product

Absolutely freaking amazing. Closes my pores and takes away my redness! Doesn’t dry out my face or leave it super oily. I’ve bought this stuff for months and I’ll keep buying it. Just wish it came in bigger bottles!

Love this product! Me and my boyfriend both used it for the same amount of time but actually for different reason, his was for acne and mine was to clear my pores and even out my complexion, it actually worked for him and worked pretty well for me also!
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?
