Smells amazing! Your face will look and feel so clean after the first use but it does give you a tingling feeling which I personally didn't like too much

I don't really have a ton of acne, but this is a very good face cleanser. It makes your face feel amazing, immediately after use. It looks amazing too!

This is definitely one of my favorite face cleansers. I had horrible acne and this helped a ton. Cleared up my skin and doesnt have a strong fragrance.

It's good, for a drug store brand. I love all things charcoal as I have huge pores and oily, acne prone skin. Works nice, feels very gentle on the skin
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?
