Sometimes it will burn my face at the beginning but it does get job done so i only use it when my face is pretty bad and follow it with a good face mosteurizer so my face wont be dry

I'm not really someone who suffers from acne, but I would recommend this product if you want to get better skin results, I loved it. Always made my skin feel refreshed, but I also used other products on the side.

It’s OK it just doesn’t penetrate as much as I wanted it to, I would suggest this product to maybe like 18 because it does give you a tingling feeling in the morning and wakes you up.

It wasn't harsh on the face, but it did leave a nice and cool feeling. I personally didn't notice much of a difference besides I felt more awake in the mornings.

I’ve tried a lot of different charcoal products but this one wasn’t as impressive as others I’ve had. I feel like the charcoal stayed in my pores and was very irritating to my skin.

This smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling super clean! I've only used it a few days but I've heard good things so I gave it a try. I was worried I'd get more dried out from it, but no worries there:) give it a shot

I started using this product a few months ago when I decided to purchase it from Walmart it was well priced and very effective although I would not recommend if your skin is any kind of sensitive but if it is not it's a very good product!
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?
