  • "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

My face felt clean but I j didn’t see much of a difference for my blackheads that I get. It was gentle on my skin though and didn’t dry it out. May work for others but I have stubborn blackheads so it didn’t work for me.

This has been my everyday cleanser for a while. I love how it feels on the skin, lathers up nicely and works well with a cleansing brush. I have found for me personally that it doesn’t clear my acne up as well as it used to.

This product was something I decided to try because I love the matching nose strips. However the face wash dries my skin out so much i had to use twice the amount of moisturizer as before. Didn’t even help with my breakouts.

This face wash is my favorite!! It refreshes me with a cool burst and it's very effective. It totally blew me away and my expectations away. I bought it at my local store target and it honestly improved my skin and attitude!

This product... I just don’t know wher to begin...after washing my face with this I felt... well I don’t kno any other way to say it than restored. I wouldn’t say it was to pricey because it all depends on where you get it from. And if you couldn’t tell already YES I would definitely buy this product again

I purchased this at Walgreens and it is great. Due to my dry skin I only use it once a week and leave it on for about 15-20 seconds in a hot shower then rinse it off. It does feel great. I recommend that if you have dry skin.

I wanted to try a charcoal cleanser and this is the first one I am trying. It hasn't sen too harsh on my skin. It's not what I expected in it's consistency. The other charcoal products I have used are gritty and this isn't.

I really enjoyed using this product. I think that it really cleans out my pores and it's a great drugstore cleanser. I like a more soft cleanser, however, and for this reason, I will not be repurchasing this product. 
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?
