  • "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

Very recently started using this and I’m liking it so far. It definitely had been meeting my expectations. It’s gently and feels minty. It’s been pretty effective and I would totally recommend this to others.

I saw a lot on social media about charcoal and was really on the fence about putting anything like that on my face. This product is great and really helps out with the around the certain time of the month acne

This product was great to use after freeing my face of makeup, it helps to refresh my face and lessen my acne. I recommend Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser to anyone who has problems with their acne!

I have some minor acne problems, but it still irritates me, my skins not too sensitive, but this didn’t hurt too much. Good price, and exceeded my expectations. I would sooo buy this again, it worked wonders!

Honestly i see no improvement to my skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean but i have to continuously use it for that clean feeling. I only use it once or twice a week because it dries my skin out! I do not recommend if you have normal to dry skin.

This product works great! espically if you have oily skin like mine it keeps the acne away and helps you maintain the perfect amount of oils. I highly recommend this product! I've been using for almost three years now and will continue to use!!!

I switch between this and the Mario bedusco acne face wash. I really really love this product because it removes most of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling super clean! And the best part, it's super affordable!

LOVE this cleanser. I was using just the regular charcoal cleanser, but then I tried this one for acne and it works so much better. I've always struggled with acne and this helps keep my skin clear. I have repurchased this and will continue to.

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.
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?
