Definitely got rid of a lot of issues for me and was pretty gentle on my sensitive skin. I've used this for a while and it's worked consistently and smells surprisingly good.

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.

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.

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.

I really like this, especially on days when my skin is feeling grimey. You can feel the freshness get renewed on your face. You can feel it really get in there and clean. Give it a go!

Was hesitant to use a charcoal mask as I've heard many negative comments but this stuff is different! Did not hurt at all to remove and my fave felt very soft and refreshed!

This product is amazing although I don't use it conventionally. This has become the perfect brush cleanser for me so if you weren't "wowed" by using it on your face yet using it to clean your brushes

Love this product! I have combination skin but usually get some blemishes and break outs, this product works!! But be aware not to use it everyday, it does dry out the skin.

I have used the pore strips but never this. I really want to try it and see if it’s really worth it. I know the strips work great but it does make my skin a little dry. Price wise I think it’s on the high side but it’s worth to try.
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?
