  • "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

This cleanser really cleans the skin well. I do have acne prone skin and although my acne isn’t gone it has improved. It does feel very slightly harsh but nothing major. I’m on my second bottle and will purchase again.

I have never been disappointed by a Biore product and this is no exception! You can really feel this cleanser working for you! Got it from Target. Pretty good value, but this brand can be a bit more pricey than others.

I have been using this product for over 4 years now and swear by it. You can really feel the charcoal’s effectiveness on your skin it almost creates a tingling feeling. The smell is also fresh. Overall would recommend!

This definitely cleans my skin really well. It doesn’t do a miracle for clearing acne but it leaves my skin feeling really clean. It is a good price and works well if you just need a cleanser but it will not cure acne.

I am a very fond user of this product. I have this one and the little soap bar. it works great, clears acne and it smells good. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean and it doesn't feel harsh while using or after.

LOVE this. Burns when you use it though. I ended up having an allergic reaction to it but regardless the product is amazing and my skin felt so smooth and refreshed right now. There is menthol in it which is the reason for my reaction.

This a a decent scrub. My face felt clean and rinsed easily. I don't think I felt any added benefit over my standard skin car routine. It did not meet my expectations and I would not necessarily recommend it to other.

This face wash has cleared up almost all of my facial acne. It is an awesome product for the price and does exactly what it says it should. It also didn't leave my face feeling as striped or dry as I thought it would.

I have been using this acne treatment for a few weeks now. I can definitely say I have clearer skin. It does take the oil out of your skin so I would highly recommend using a toner and moisturizer as well.  
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?
