  • "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 had this product for about 4 months and it works really well on my skin! It definitely helps keep my skin nice and clear, and I don't have to use a lot of the product in order to distribute it throughout my face and it to foams up pretty quickly. The pricing is perfect!!

ooh yes!!!! this facial wash is to die for. if you have tons of black heads they are basically all gone in maybe a week. The packaging is so cute also!! It is a little pricey but honestly you see the results so it is worth it. I have recommended it to so many others

For a drug store cleanser this product does wonders. I really like the cooking effect it has. Also it removes all of my makeup after a long day I look forward to using my biore! Not only do I buy this on the regular, I will continue to recommend it to my friends as well!

This product wasn’t exactly what I wanted my skin just felt shiny and rubbery. My pores were cleared but it wasn’t amazing, they ended up being more susceptible to getting acne afterwards. Would suggest as a once every now and then products rather then every day routine.

I think I was hopeful for this working miracles, and it did meet my expectations. I enjoy how easy it is to apply on and how seamlessly it wipes off. I'd definitely buy this again, as it makes it easier to use it instead of mixing charcoal myself. Great product & I would recommend it to my friends.

I bought this product because the charcoal seems to be a big hit right now! I was a first time user and it met my expectations. It was a nice product, but I was a little disappointed. There is a little room for improvement... it smelled nice and felt great but I didn't see a huge change in my skin. I will still use it.

Love the charcoal stuff from Biore. I’ve used this and the charcoal soap bar. Love them both. They make your face feel super tingly and fresh and clean. And really help with the blackheads. Also very moderately priced. Definitely good for people on a budget like myself!

I thought I would try this product just to try something new. I absolutely fell in love with it. My skin is the clearest it's ever been and it minimized the oil on my face. Only thing is I like to moisturize after because my skin feels a little dry but I will never go back to any previous product!

Ok so, this prosecution didn’t work for me, however, I do see why people like it. It had this amazing cooking feeling and it tingles when you was apply it and get it into a lather. It detoxes the skin and is suppose to dig stuff out, but this product just wasn’t for me.
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?
