It's a good face wash product, but it sometimes drys out my skin. I recommend using a moisturizer after washing your face with this product.

This is such a good drug store charcoal option. It's so accessible and easy to find a quality product with this Biore wash in the mix.

I use this face wash and the charcoal nose strips. Unlike a lot of charcoal face products I feel like this and the nose strips actually help.

I liked this cleanser. It burned my skin when I first started using it but went away quickly. I ended up really liking it and found it great.

This product is alright for something you buy at Walmart. It makes your skin feel very cool. It’s a good value but it isn’t a miracle worker.

I actually love this product. Definitely gets all the dirt and Greece off my skin. I would recommend it to anyone and definitely keep buying.
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?
