  • "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

I use this because I tend to break out super easily and I will say that this is one of my favorite acne washes. After I wash my face my skin feels like everything was just cleaned out of it and it's nice and smooth and I never break out after I use it I just can't use it everyday because it will start to dry my skin out. But I would and I have recommended this product to people

Um, this is an awesome face wash.  4/5 stars because i only used it one time so far, but i love love looove the cooling effect. I feel clean after using even though I'm one of those kinds of people who only feels like my skin gets clean by using a scrub. (which i know is not the case and is actually damaging!) So, this will save me in more ways than one!

okay don’t get me wrong this is the best face wash ever 9/10 works but a warning to everyone !!! i don’t know if this is because i have sensitive skin or not but i left this on my face for a minute or 2 and when i washed it off my face is TOMATO red it looks like a sunburn (this just now happened to me) and it has been like this for about 20 minutes now so just warning to everyone DO NOT LEAVE IT ON YOUR FACE WASH IT OFF IMMEDIATLY !!!!! i’ll put a picture (haha excuse my horribly damaged face i’m working on it lol)  but then again it may be because i have sensitive skin but other than this i love this face wash and i wouldn’t want any other !!!!

I have combination skin and always have a lot of black heads on my nose! This is a holy grail for me it doesn’t strip my skin but it helps with my acne and black head! Also I once switched this out for 2 months and I had one of the worst outbreaks in the world! Switched back to this 2 months later and I was cleared within the first week! Amazing

This acne cleanser is no joke! I stumbled upon this product when at a friend’s house. She had this in her shower and recommended I take a pump to see how I liked it.

I must say that this product is one you can tell works from the minute you put it on. The charcoal in this is crucial to opening up your pores and getting all the junk out. When applied it also has a warming sensation that lets you know it’s working.

I love how my friend uses this in the shower because I think that this is honestly the best way to use it. You can put it on when you first get in, massage it in, let it sit, and then rinse when you’re finished. Really recommend this product to clean your face!

I love this cleanser!! I keep a bottle in my shower and use it for my morning face wash; I alternate this with the regular Biore charcoal cleanser daily. Great lather and it *tingles* on my skin and rinses clean. I even use it on my back & chest once or twice a week to keep breakouts at bay during our humid Florida months.

This is the only cleanser that I use anymore! I absolutely love it! I use it both day and night in my skin care routine and it works wonders. It cleans so well and doesn’t irritate my skin like some charcoal cleansers do. It is SUPER cheap and definitely worth a shot if you’re looking for a new/good cleanser.

The feeling this product gives your face deserves 5 stars! If you like the minty fresh feeling from your face wash, you're going to absolutely adore this. It goes on black-ish (charcoal, duh) and scrubs nice. The minty feeling is amazing and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and cool. In the mornings, this is great to wake you up! 
I unfortunately did not see the best results from this product, and it actually made me break out a tiny bit more than usual by the time I was through with the bottle. Though I love the feeling, it didn't work well with my chemistry (hopefully it will be great for you!) so I have to give it 4 stars. 
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?

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?
