  • "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 husband has really oily skin so he has large pores on his nose which creates blackheads. I make him use this at least 2 times a week and you can see a great difference.

I loved using this!! I'm not a big fan of facial cleansers to begin with because I have complicated skin but this didn't dry me out at all and definitely got the job done

I do love this product, but I don’t recommend it as a daily face wash. It works, but really dries out your skin. But if your face is feeling oily and needs a good wash this is the product to use!

I absolutely love this product because it clears up the majority of my acne and helps with my dry skin that I tend to have a problem with. I would absolutely recommend this product and I encouraged one of my friends to try it and they have seen lots of results as well.

I really loved this product. It didn’t dry out my skin and it kept my skin pretty clear. It foams up, and has little black pieces in it. I only buy this when I have a coupon.

I had really bad acne because of my cycle. I would break out extremely bad! But my cousin told me to give this a try and in a matter of only one week, my skin cleared up.

This cleanser made my face feel clean after using it but sadly because of my sensitive skin I ended uo breaking out with this cleanser. I stopped using immediately and my face cleared back up.
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?
