  • "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

The product is really strong but super fresh. It does minimize the appearance of the pores but doesn't erase them completely. You can buy it at Walmart or target . I love the fresh feeling after I use it

I love the way this makes my face feel after cleaning. I usually just grab it at target or rite aid. It helps clear up my acne and definitely would recommend to another person to use! I would buy again !

I love the way this feels on my face! It cools and feels minty! My face feels very soft after washing and feels clean. I haven't noticed much change in my breakouts or blackheads but I enjoy the product.

I use this on any part of my body prone to acne. This product does give a cool tingle after use which I love. Great price especially for something so versatile. Gentle on skin.

This product definitely makes my skin feel very cool and fresh after using, it’s very gentle, but I don’t think it does much for me. It’s a good price and I’m sure it’ll work for someone! I would recommend it for the price, you basically pay for what you get. I just haven’t noticed much of a change in my skin.

I love this facial cleanser, it makes my skin feel really clean and it doesn't dry me out. I have oily skin and this cleanser really helps me stay oil-free throughout the day.

Did not like it! Left my skin very dry and felt like my pores were still clogged! Used it for about a month to see if it was just my skin getting adjusted to it but it wasn’t!
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?

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?
