  • "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 was skeptical to try a charcoal mask after hearing how harsh the removal is, but was pleasantly surprised it wasn't so bad! Left my face feeling AMAZING!

I've wanted to try this for a while, but now wish I went for a different brand. This makes my face feel very clean, but also dries out my combination skin.

Super fun to use, left my skin feel smooth. It was a little bit drying but most acne type products are. Love this line from them and would purchase more.

Worked really well, cleared out my pores and made my skin look dewy and smooth, I used with a washcloth and it eliminated most of the texture on my face

It was ok I really didn't like that it left a oily residue on my skin after using it though it did have a good smell which was very soothing to my skin.
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?
