  • "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 bought this thinking it was just another face wash. However if broke me out and made my skin so dry I had to stop using it. I gave it to my sister and the same happened to her. This product is definitely not for people with sensitive skin.

Love the tingly feeling it leaves after I use it. More of an exfoliating scrub than an acne scrub though so it didn't do anything for my acne. But my skin did feel clean after!

Clears my breakouts and stops new ones from forming. I really like this cleanser because it feels great on my skin, refreshing. Clears out my pores without over drying my face.

I love this stuff for my black heads, it didn't get rid of all of them but it did get rid of most and it let my skin really soft and not dry like some of the others I've tried

It didn't enlarge or minimize my pores. It didn't make me feel any more clean from what I already was. I've only tried it a few times but I don't think I would buy it again.

It made me break out awfully! It honestly "felt good" while washing my face, but I don't think that's worth all of the acne that continuously followed. I used it for over a month hoping the acne would stop, but unfortunately it didn't.

This facial cleanser has helped clear up my skin a lot! I love that it leaves your face feeling refreshed afterwards and it doesn't dry out your skin like most facial cleansers I have used in the past.
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?
