I'd really love this product if it didn't dry my face out so much! Other than the dryness it was good to my skin and was not irritating at all. My acne never got super bad using this. Isn't very pricey for a good face wash.

Love the tingly feel from it! Makes my skin feel almost extra clean after using it. Had a nice smell to it as well and a little goes a long way with this product. Would recommend to others!

I love this product! It always does the job cleaning my skin and replenishing my skin from makeup and oil on a daily basis. I typically use this product 2-3 times a day. I have noticed a difference in my acne prone skin.

It made my face burn and itch. Left little bumpy marks on me. I was allergic to something I. It which sucks because I liked the mint in it. It was bought at Walmart in town. I wouldn’t buy it again though because of it.

Great skin cleanser that smells so good! Really helped clean my face! Recommended getting if you want something that is gentle, but functional. I have tried other products from Biore and they are all some of my favorites!

This product worked at first. I use it twice a day. At first it left my face nice and clean and not dry. As the weeks went by I still felt my face dirty and my skin was extremely dry. Probably won't purchase this again.

Overall, I felt the effects of the salicylic acid in the product, but it didn't do much for my skin. I used it for about 3 months and saw no difference; I was disappointed. I will definitely not repurchase this item.

This product was okay. It didn’t really help with my skin or anything but it did have a little results. The bottle is normal and regular but it’s fine. It is a good idea and probably works for certain skin but not oily.
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?
