  • "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

I like it until it burns your skin. I love the smell. I might be a little weird for that but as for the chemicals or whatever inside of it. I wish it was 100% charcoal. Would be much better. Would not try again.

Started noticing results in a little less than two weeks. This helped clean my face and I really enjoyed the Scent. The charcoal was really great with my oily skin and helped clean up the acne spots on my face.

I have super oily skin and this worked so well. The only problem I had, was keeping it on a little too long. My face got irritated and red. I have since not kept it on as long and haven't had the problem again. I love biore and will continue to use

Does a fairly good job - I felt like it could've done a better job making my skin feel clean. It tingles a little bit, but I don't think it contributed to clearing dirt. I still have to take care of my blackheads

As I've said in previous reviews, I adore this cleanser. It's refreshing while it irritating my skin. I was excited that it worked so well! And the price wasn't bad either. I'd recommend this for all skin types.

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

This leaves your face feeling so fresh and so clean. It’s really gentle, great for sensitive skin! The piece is pretty affordable, for the results it’s GREAT. This is always one of my purchases when at the store

It works well for those with bad acne. It does have a tingling sensation when you wash your face at first. I am a repeat user of this product. It is a little harsh only because of the burning sensation at first.

This stuff is amazing when I’m experiencing acne. Thankfully I usually don’t have very intense breakouts so this works great. It’s not harsh. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean without being over drying

I wanted to love this product but it just wasn’t for my skin. My skin tended to get super red and itchy after using this product. I heard great things about it and was recommended to me but it just didn’t work.
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?
