I like how my face felt, but I noticed I’d break out and I don’t get a lot of pimples. Either I was not using right or it’s just too strong for my face. Price wise is ok.

Love love love!!!!! This is the best face wash I have used. It's refreshing when you wash your face and at the same time it doesn't dry your skin. This product has helped me reduce my breakouts.

This just didn’t work for me. I usually use a face wash with an acne fighting ingredient and this just wasn’t enough to stop the random breakouts I’m getting still at 34. I wouldn’t buy it again.

I LOVE this cleanser! My skin was soft and glowing after each use! It was super effective in keeping away blemishes, and removing the ones that already existed. I purchased it at Wal-Mart, for a more than reasonable price. HIGHLY recommended for combination skin types!

This product is great on your skin and doesn’t harm it at all! The product worked really great on my skin but I can’t say it did for everyone! When applying it I felt sort of a bubbling feeling!

Works great for both me and my fiancé. I believe I have combination skin and this works on my trouble areas (nose and hairline). Plus it smells like citrus which I love!

The charcoal kept the oils at bay and my breakouts away. I would say due to the charcoal it can be a little drying but it is not bad. Just make sure to moisturize after.

This product is a little stingy like when you put mint toothpaste on your lips.Its very gentle with your skin but at first it might feel very overwhelming. I bought this at cvs for a cheap price. I don't think this is doing much to my skin. I wouldn't buy it again.

This product smells amazing and really gets deep in your pores to help reduce spots and redness. I usually use this project in the shower to let the steam open my pores.

Love the way this face wash makes my face feel. It gives that clean and fresh feel afterwards. It smells great as well. I still have some small blemishes every so often.
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?
