Deep clean acne cleanser. Gives skin a tingly feeling and leaves you feeling refreshed. I don't use it as an everyday cleanser but it is very nice to use about three times a week. Is somewhat of a pricier cleanser.

This is my everyday face wash. As all my holy grail products, i stumbled upon it by accident! You can feel it cleaning your pores, and my skin is always super clear! I love this and would recommend it to EVERYONE!!

This product stops my skin from breaking out. It's the product I use to wash my face every night and every morning and I go through it really quickly. Smells so good, you feel it working on your face and has a slight tingle! Definitely recommend!!

This product from biore didn't really work for me. It's purpose is to clear up acne but after using it for a couple months it didn't really do anything I was kind of disappointed. Wouldn't purchase again 🤷🏼‍♀️

This is the best facial cleanser I've ever tried. It is really gentle eith the skin, and it cleans it really good, it works wonders specially with the astringent líquid from bioré, I would continue buying:)

As a student on a budget going through stress, breakouts were the last thing you wanted. HIGHLY RECOMMEND - Biore is a cheap brand, but does its job - the charcoal helps clear white/blackheads. I still use it to this day.

Love the smell and tingling feeling while using! Perfect for using with my Clarisonic brush because it foams up nicely. It is pretty cheap and you can find it at Walmart or other drug stores in your area!!
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?
