  • "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

My experience with biore charcoal acne clearing cleanser wasn't that great to be honest it was rough on my skin, made my skin very dry and itchy after use of it . I would actually break out in whiteheads the next day and it just was really not my product.

After a few days of using this product i began to notice that my skin was very oily and shiny which actually led to more acne on my face. The charcoal also seemed to irritate my skin and cause redness. This product did not meet my expectations and made my skin worse.

I really love the fresh tingly feeling you get after washing your face with the Charcoal Acne cleaner. I don't actually suffer from acne but I still use the daily for the fresh, tingly clean feelings. I always have this in my bathroom and another on backup.

I receieved this cleanser as a sample and I loved it ever since! It is super cooling and feels minty on the skin which i Love. Sometimes I keep it on my face as a mask, and then lather off. Great for oily skin since it really pulls everything out. Love love love!

I orginally bought this charcoal face wash because I’ve heard it helped my friends with their skin. After a couple uses, I found out it really helped my acne, and it also feels amazing on skin. The charcoal lets you feel the pores opening and being cleaned out.

Works amazing with removing black heads and pores and is great for oily skin. Leaves skin feeling refreshed and good as new. It is very effective and always gets the job done. I think the scent could be a little more appealing but that's not really a huge issue. The product works and i can always rely on it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this product. It left a very refreshed feeling on my face and made me feel very clean. It also has a wonderful smell to it! However I would recommend using a moisturizer with it as it can dry your skin out! I bought this product at Walmart!

For the past months, I've been breaking out and it was not cute! I tend to break out when I'm stress so this was a life saver!! I use just a little and it helps out a lot! You can totally get great skin care on a budget so I suggest to try this one!! You will not regret it!!!

This is the best blackhead/charcoal cleanser I have found on the market. It smells like mint and tingles your skin so I always love the affect because it makes me think it's cleaning my pores even more. I saw results within 1 week of using this product everyday!
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?
