  • "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

Love the cool sensation on your skin after washing with it! Doesn't help with all acne but keeps it at bay. Bought it at Target.

After I use this product, my face feels really fresh and clean. I gave 4 stars because I still have occasional small breakouts.

After putting it on it gives a little tingle on your face, after a few days it shows most changes. It works for oily skin too.

This is great for my oily skin. It helps control breakouts and cleans pores. I use it morning and night and it isn't too harsh.

i have used this for a long time now. the charcol really helps clear out all the dirst thats not only on the suface of my face.
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?
