  • "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 boyfriend bought this and I tired it the other day and loved it! I went and bought my own. Has helped clear up my blackheads. It did dry my skin out a little though so I've been using moisturizer with it!

I actually bought this for my husband and it helped with his blackheads so much. It helps pull the dirt from your face and the junk that is in it. He said his face always felt so much more clean and lighter.

it works very well & you can feel it instantly when you put it on. if you have sensitive skin be careful you don’t leave it on too long, itll burn and your skin will be reddish but overall its a good product

I love this scrub!! Very few face scrubs that I have used leave me feeling this refreshed and oil-less. I love that I can last for about six hours without even having to wipe my face (very oily skin) because this product does its job so well!

I use this product every time I’m in the shower I love it. Makes the face feel great and cleans it amazingly. I also use this with the biore face strips for my nose and chin. So amazed with there products.

Another Biore product that I've used, and it worked flawlessly! I seriously wish I had switched to this a long time ago. The pricing is perfect for a college student. I suggest it to almost everyone I know.
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?
