It cleared my face up rather well and made my face feel so smooth. It hurt a little peeling it off so there is that aspect.

I use this when I don't have any of the nose strips works pretty good for the most part and leaves your face feeling tingly

This is my favourite brand for acne skin care. It smells good. The pump makes it easy to apply and it lathers really well.

Works pretty well I enjoy the scent but it tend to dry my face out so if you are to use this product be sure to moisturize.

It was gritty but just did not exfoliate enough for me. I guess I wanted it to be more like the charcoal mask & it wasn't.

Freaking love this. Works so well, love the cool feeling it gives my face and it truly does help clear acne and black heads
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?
