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!

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.

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.

Just used this a little bit ago! Makes my skin feel so clean. I'm a daily user! I like to use vitamin c oil & wash it off with this to make my face squeaky clean. I would definitely recommend this.

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.

This is the only face wash that helps with my acne, if I switch face washes even for a month or 2 I have terrible breakouts, but as soon as I switch back they are all gone!

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 love how this makes my skin feel first thing in the morning. It's a bit tingly so it really wakes me up. It really helps to control my oily skin and acne as well. 
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?
