  • "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

On its own, this product doesn't do much cleaning or pore clearing. I have to use it with a wash rag in order for it to fully clean my face. I prefer the Deep Pore Cleanser (green label) by the same brand. It still makes my face feel fresh when I use a wash rag.

This is decently priced, and does a nice job of cleaning my face. I use this with my clarisonic, and it's pretty gentle on my skin. That being said, I don't feel like it is exceptionally greater than any other similar product, but I do consistently repurchase.

I love this product ! The smell, texture, the refreshed feeling. The value on it is reasonable and is easy to find in stores where I live. I'm already on my fifth bottle. Wonderful ! Just wonderful. I will definitely be getting another once this is empty.

This was a great cleanser for me. I could apply to my face and neck a few minutes prior to taking a shower. It left my face smooth and not oily but never made my skin dry. My girls use this and it has helped with keeping my 14 years acne at a minimum.

I've heard other people rave about this product and I wanted to love it so much. However, I had an allergic reaction and it burned my face pretty bad. I'm guessing it was just something with my skin and it doesn't happen to everyone. Just be careful!

I really love this . It's amazing . I wet my face with hot water to open my pores . Then massage this on my face and leave it on my face for a little . While I'm waiting I brush my teeth then after that I wash it off my face. Then put a cold rag on my face to close my pores. It's amazing

I love the smell of this cleanser. I also love the way that it makes my face feel as I am washing my face with it. It gives my skin a nice, refreshing, tingly feel. I love how easy it is to fine it at my local walmart and cvs as well.

This face wash defiantly does the trick without a high price tag. I did notice a strange and pretty strong burning sensation during and slightly after use that was concerning. All together though this product worked well and showed results.
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?
