  • "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

It definitely eliminated blackheads but didn’t do much for my acne. I think it would be great for oily skin but not so much for combo skin

I think I might like the original better, but this isn't a bad b product. I like the tingle it gives and the way b it tightens up my face.

It worked really great at first.. my face felt so clean the only problem I had with this product was it was drying my face out really bad.

Amazing! My blackheads on my nose are gone and my skin is clear than ever. It's in the shower and makes my face feel very clean and tingly.

I use this when I am feeling extra clogged. My husband uses it as well, I think he feels less girly due to the black. Leaves a fresh feel.

This product is amazing. It’s only about $8 but lasts almost a month. It does not really dry out my face, but I do use a moisturizer daily.
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?
