  • "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

Didn't notice a positive difference in my skin at all. Used it every night for over a month and I actually noticed more break outs.

It pulled the stuff out of my pores and caused a breakout. It did not clear the acne it caused. I used it daily and saw no results.

While the charcoal helped I feel like other products I used may have helped a lot more, for the price it is a good product though!

It really cleanses your pores. When I use this I know I'm getting a deep clean. The only thing is my face is really dry afterwards.

The charcoal acne cleanser did a good job cleaning my face. I did think it was a little harsh as my face became dry after daily use

I did not really like it , I didn't really notice a big difference at all, not enough to buy it again it dried my skin out to much.
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?
