  • "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 used this face wash to help get rid of black heads on my face. The wash itself is refreshing. I didn't notice any impact on removing black heads using the wash alone. I would suggest using the wash and a micellar water if you are looking to get rid of blackheads.

When I used the Charcoal face wash I could feel the effects as soon as it hit my skin. This is now my go to face wash, I found it very effective in meeting my skin care needs. The package is nice to look at but the highlight is the black color of the product.

It is a little drying, but it really works! I love this stuff. My acne literally disappeared overnight and hasn't came back, even if I didn't use the product for over a week. It affordable and amazing and I hope you all try it out sometime. You will see results too!

The Product was honestly amazing! It was really sad to empty the whole bottle and throw it away. It made my skin really clear up after the many years of acne. I wanted to try it again, but is a student and had to settle for the cheaper stuff...But really recommend it

I have never had good luck with facial cleansers but this one has worked amazing. I love the charcoal base and every time I use it I can feel it working. It makes my faces so smooth and clear. I love it and I definitely recommend it to anyone with acne problems.

This product is amazing to use on acne prone skin. It helps your skin to not break out. After you use it your skin feels super clear. I purchased this product at Walgreen. I started using this product because my sister told me about it and I would continue to buy it.

I just started using this cleanser today on my problem areas (chin and middle of cheeks). I've already noticed my newer blemishes have diminished in size. The texture of this product is great. It is on the thicker side. I also like that it has a cooling/menthol feel.

I just bought this today and it worked awesome! As a first timer I was very pleased with it. It met all expectations as a cleanser. It has cool beads in it which may seem harsh to some. I would definitely recommend to others!

This cleanser is okay. It works, and there is nothing blatantly wrong with it, but I have definitely had better. I wish it was more creamy than it was, the smell is a little strong. It is a good value, however, and seems to work just fine. Probably would not buy again.
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?
