I am obsessed with this project. I love the charcoals and that it feels that it is really deep cleaning my face. You can feel the charcoal when you are washing your face and can really tell it has made a difference for me. Highly recommend.

This face wash is my favorite drug store acne face wash. My face is very sensitive to face washes and this one does not irritate my face at all or dry it out. It has a nice cooling effect and o would definitely recommend it to other people.

Worked pretty good to try out for s face wash I wouldn’t use it for a daily use and it is a bit pricey for the amount of product and for its efficiency but it’s worth a try to see if the product is for you

This I feel is a gimmicky product. It came out when charcoal masks were all the craze and it didn't really do anything for my skin. I don't know if I am just sensitive but my face was red for hours after I used it. Would not purchase again

I wish I would have loved this product but unfortunately it broke me out worse. I have oily skin and this product seemed to make my skin more oily. I would recommend it to someone with normal to dry skin.

Great product! Works really well at controlling oiliness. Definitely met my expectations and is easily available at most drugstores. It stings a bit when you use it but it definitely works at combatting oiliness. Will definitely buy again!

This product it absolutely horrible. If you have acne prone skin (like me) don't use this product. It does not Minimize your pores, it just clogged my pores even more. So if you have oily skin and acne I don't recommend you buy this product

Absolutely love this product! I have been using it for a few years. Has a nice tingle and really clears everything up. It does dry out my skin a little though, so you have to definitely use a moisturizer.

Works really good, feel like it exfoliate well. Almost too dry on my skin though. Don't like would be great for someone wort super sensitive skin, but definitely worth a try if acne is big concern for you.
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?
