  • "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

This is my go to for acne. I have oily skin and i love using products with charcoal in them. It feels like it sucks up all the oil and my skin can breath.

It didn't do much to get rid of my acne. It dried out my skin and smells horrible. I know people who love it but I just can't say I would ever buy it again

It worked really good for awhile and then started drying out my skin so I had to change my cleanser. I have used it in the past and will try it again soon.

My staple cleanser at night when I want to make sure that my face is really clean and good feeling for bed! Works great and doesn't leave skin feeling dry

Great for black heads but not at pushing back new acne. I noticed my black heads lightened and my pores lessened. I enjoyed using this with the pore strips
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?
