Absolutely LOVE this product! Had a cooling sensation when I used it in the shower! Could definitely tell a difference in my blackheads after just a few days of using!

I bought this face wash because the store didn't have the one I usually get from a different brand and I am so glad I did! This wash has cleared up my face so quickly! I have also noticed that my face has become less oily!

Loved this cleanser when I first started my journey to clearer skin this was a staple in my skin care routine and I loved it and it did not dry my skin out afterwards.

This helped clear up the small breakouts by my chin and jaw. I have dry skin, but it didn't bigger my skin or make it breakout more. I use with my electric face brush

By far my favorite cleanser. I let it sit after applying and love that you clean feel it opening your pores. The clean feeling I get after washing it off is the best!

This stuff is amazing. I literally love it. Naturally purifies and deep cleans. Draws out and traps 2x more dirt and impurities than a basic cleanser. Provides deeply cleaned, tingly-smooth skin.

A nice, refreshing face wash. I have not found my blackheads to decrease at all though. I only use it every once in a while. Leaves skin red and dry if used too much or left on for too long

My mom bought me this product, I had told her that my skin has been breaking out and I didn't really feel confident. So she bought me this and I started using it and over time I could really notice the difference my skin was dramatically changing and I wasn't breaking out like I was. Thank you Biore!!!!

This stuff was okay but my skin is too sensitive for this product in general. I can't use it with out any of it drying my face out and having red blotches everywhere.
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?
