  • "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

My fave always feels like it just brushed it's teeth lol. It is like a minty feeling but on your face. You feel like you just splashed yourself with cool water on a hpt day.

This product is amazing. It works even after you have cleansed your skin. It is very effective in keeping your skin clear while being a gentle product. I love the packaging!

For the most part this cleanser works great on my skin. It feels cool which makes it feel like I'm getting a good clean. However, it doesn't do much for blackheads as it does whiteheads. Great for oily skin. Combination skin should follow with moisturizer as I have. I don't think this would be good for dry skin.

I only gave this product one star because it burned my skin. I don’t know if I’m allergic to it or what. I also didn’t like the way it smelled. I will personally not be purchasing this product again.

This makes my skin very cold and uncomfortable. I feel clean after the fact, but immediately after cleaning my face I don’t prefer this feeling. Has not cleared sky acne up.

Leaves your skin feeling light and soft, but for me it does not help correct my skin problems. I will however continue to use it, because it has not hurt my skin in anyway.

Not my favorite cleanser. I currently been washing my face with this but I think I’m just using it to finish the bottle. I like the tingling fresh feelings but it hasn’t improved my breakouts.

I use this daily. Can definitely feel a tingle and deep clean feeling. Love it! I would recommend this product to any skin type. Leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth, not greasy or heavy at all.

My face has never been more clear with using this face wash. I have tried so many and they never show much results but then I tried this and I am never using anything else.
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?
