LOVE this cleanser! It exfoliates very gently so it's good for sensitive skin or any skin in fact! It slightly tingles on the skin which I like as it really feels like it's giving my skin a deep clean and doing something good for me!

This cleanser does work but it's not really different for other cleansers that I used. It kinda works and makes you skin clear but it's not something that I would buy again. But I do love all Japanese biore clean. Those are amazing.

Amazing price and I did notice a difference with my pores. They have a great range for dealing with large pores and blackheads. The packaging is nothing special and does not stand out on the shelf but the product is great.

Used to use this everyday without fail, it made my face so smooth and I seen a dramatic difference with my skin especially with black heads. I bought it from boots and would definitely re-purchase in the future if needed.

I have been loyal to this face wash for over a year now and my skin thanks me. It has never been clearer which is amazing because I suffer with adult acne that even most creams prescribed by doctors haven't been able to fix.

This cleanser really cleans the skin to best of ability and I found that my acne began to become less inflamed almost immediately after using it. Amazing - a must have for sensitive skin. Definitely buy again.

This product is very refreshing and smells good. It burns a lot which disappointed me. I bought it at shoppers drug mart. It was harsh on my skin and i turned red. I would buy again as my skin felt very soft.
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?
