Excellent. Can be deemed as harmful for the skin because charcoal is being used, but overall this cleanser really works on all skin types, especially those affected by acne daily.

I Typically Buy Things With Charcoal In It. Was In Target & Decided To Try This. I Usually Don’t Buy This Brand, But I Was Curious. I Like It, Made My Face Feel Clean & Refreshed.

My friend had this product in her shower and I used it all the time. I loved how my skin felt afterwards. I feel like my skin is clear and can breathe after using it. I feel fresh and revived. Will purchase!

Leaves a fresh clean feeling. Smells great and wakes up your senses a little extra in the morning. Definitely have seen an improvement with my blackheads after using this product.

It was very drying to my skin, but I could see how it would work for people with oily skin. I only used it a few times but I probably won’t use it again. It’s very gentle, but it’s too drying. I would recommend to people with oily skin.

Clears my breakouts and stops new ones from forming. I really like this cleanser because it feels great on my skin, refreshing. Clears out my pores without over drying my face.

I have used this 4 times with the same result. This burbs my skin to the point of needing to wash it off. Left my skin irritated. My husband uses it with good results for him. Good price for the size.

This facial cleanser has helped clear up my skin a lot! I love that it leaves your face feeling refreshed afterwards and it doesn't dry out your skin like most facial cleansers I have used in the past.
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?
