  • "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 love this product, it keeps my face feeling fresh, and really helps clear my face. I use this product and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a non expensive and very effective facial cleanser. I would buy this product again and again.

This is one of my top 3 favorite facial cleansers for sure! It goes on a bit thick and you need to apply water with it after a few times but it's also a good visit thing because a little goes a long way! My number one favorite charcoal cleansing products!

Works amazing with removing black heads and pores and is great for oily skin. Leaves skin feeling refreshed and good as new. It is very effective and always gets the job done. I think the scent could be a little more appealing but that's not really a huge issue. The product works and i can always rely on it.

this priduct works really well for oily skin since its charcoal. and after rinsing it leaves a very nice, fresh feeling behind that tingles a bit! the only drawback is that it didnt work for me as a daily cleanser, which was a little disappointing,

I absolute love charcoal facial cleansers. I always feel fresh after I wash my face, and my nose always ends up being so much smoother afterwards. I would recommend this to anyone who definitely has dry or peeling skin on the nose area, it works very well.

this product is not good for acne. It does not clear the acne. it makes the acne worse, since it is oil based. I bought this at target for around $8. it works for people that have dry skin. I would not buy this again. I also would not recommend this prouct

I used this product one time while on a trip. I have combination skin, and, while the price is competitive, it made my dry areas dry-er and my oily areas dry. This Biore product was provided by the hostess, but I would not buy this product for myself.

I love this product ! The smell, texture, the refreshed feeling. The value on it is reasonable and is easy to find in stores where I live. I'm already on my fifth bottle. Wonderful ! Just wonderful. I will definitely be getting another once this is empty.

Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser I have very clogged pores, does this help clear them out fast?
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?

Does this product control your oils well? I have very combo skin and have been trying to find more gentle cleansers (I exfoliate every day).
