Love the smell and it's also tingly on the skin. Like it has mint in it! But it's not strong to the point it burns it's more on the soothing side. This paired with my Foreo Luna is a math made in heaven!

This cleanser is wonderful! I was recently introduced to it and it makes my skin feel so smooth and fresh after. I also feel the charcoal has helped with my blemishes.

This face wash makes my skin feel refresh and clean. The charcoal ones are the best to use. It's you feeling refreshed. I also love their baking soda face wash too.

I liked the way my skin felt after using this product, however I feel like there are other products similar to this that really clear out pore and black heads better.

This face product really works to exfoliate and clean your skin. It's great value and not too pricey, only about $2-5. I bought mine at Walmart. This is my first time using it but once I run out i'll definitely buy again.

Sucks the living oil out of your face! It has a tea tree effect where your face feels minty, so if you like that after feeling, this is definitely one for you to try!

I use this in the shower every morning, I don't know what it is but it gives u a little tingle that makes my skin feel so great. I haven't had any breakouts since I've been using this daily!! :)

This product worked wonders on my face I've had pretty bad acne for quite some time now, but this product surprisingly helped reduce my acne pretty quickly and it's very refreshing to use.

 I got this product from Ulta and it was a great experience. The product is very cooling at first, on my cheeks especially. Also My acne has lessened, and I've noticed that when I DO get pimples, they're dried out.I would totally buy this again.

I love this product. Removes all the dirt and oil from your face and leaves your skin glowing. I use it before bed and still wake up with my skin feeling refreshed.
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?
