  • "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

It was a good product. I unfortunately stop buying this because it’s more expensive than some stuff that is cheaper and works the same. It was cool how it was black face wash and it smelled pretty good.

This acne scrub keeps your face looking flawless after a routine of using it. It leaves it smooth and glowing. It is a good product if you are looking to reduce your acne but not completely take it away

This is a good cleanser, but can quickly become too drying. It won't remove makeup -- you need to take that off first with a cleaning oil. It'd be an effective cleanser for someone with oily skin.

My wife and I use this every day. Love the smell, and slight tingle sensation when you're rubbing it on your face. Definitely has helped clean my pores and I don't notice as much blackheads on my nose!

It’s a good consistency. I feel that it’s just like any other scrub. I didn’t see much change through out the process. It was a first time for me but I don’t think I would spend that much money for it.

This cleanser can be a little harsh on sensitive skin, I recommend using it 1-3 a week with a less harsh cleanser. It didn’t help clear the big acne breakouts. It can be found at any drug store or ulta

Best cleanser I have ever found! I love how this is a simple but effective cleanser for my oily acne prone skin. Great value for the price, lasted months. Very gentle but effective on my skin. Did not burn. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a great cleanser.
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?
