It was a great product. I used it for about 3 months. Smells great. Price is average. Noticed it dried my skin out after continual usage.

This is an okay product. I liked how it felt on my skin it had a cooling sensation, but I didn't see any significant changes in my acne.

Burns my skin and doesn't do anything for it besides irritate. I was disappointed in this product because I was excited for it to work.

This was the first charcoal scrub I've ever used. It works very well on the days I don't wanna use my more intense exfoliating scrubs!

This product deep cleans my pores. I have acne prone and and combination skin it did not break me out more and didn't dry my skin out.
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?
