I use this everyday and I love it. It’s cooling and refreshing. I wish it exfoliated, but it cleans really well. A lot of cleansers don’t get all of my eyeliner and mascara off but this one does a really great job

Leaves your face and skin feeling so fresh and clean, it’s as if your skin can now breath. It gets down deep into the pores and gives you a great, amazing cleanse. It was so cheap too! And cN be bought anywhere!

Omg! I love this charcoal cleanser, it makes my skin feel so fresh and soft. The packaging is great, a nice dispenser to have it by the sink. It’s not pricey and I’m very pleased with this product. Love it!

Charcoal is super overrated but it’s effective on the skin. I started using this the beginning of 2017 when I started breaking out with a lot of acne and eventually this product wasn’t for me because the dermatologist recommended me something else

This product was super amazing on oil control. It did feel like it dries up skin a bit, it’s gentle on the skin. Leaves skin feeling refreshed. I purchased mine from Walgreens and I would definitely say this product helps a lot with stubborn pores

I love it! Love love love it! So great for oily skin I have so much charcoal mask stuff but this cleanser always works. Whether I use a scrubber or wherever on my body I've got a break out it's there to fix it!

My son bought this, but I just had to try it with my spin brush facial cleanser. Though I am 56 with no acne, this facial wash made my skin feel smooth and fresh. I really liked it. I will definitely tell my friends about it.

I was excited to use it and when I did, it made my face super dry. I've heard charcoal is great for things but it was harsh on my face. The price is alright but the product killed my skin every time I used it.

My skin is really sensitive, so this product didn’t really help my skin. Overall the packaging was great. It made my skin turn really red and it got puffy, very disappointed. I personally wouldn’t buy it again

I love this Product . This specific one is the only face washi use on the daily. I buy it at an retailer for only about 7 dollars !!! It works well for my skin - is recommend this product for others most def. ! Love it and will continue using it
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?
