A great product and cleans in deeply into your skin, the reason I gave it a 4 Star is that it’s a little rough on the skin, but good to clean any dirt, pores and left over makeup. I would recommend to try this out if their looking for a vet affordable cleanser.

Love all of the charcoal masks, rinces and rubs that are a lot of great ones out there. This doesn't dry my skin out like most acne scrubs go. It's pretty inexpensive, I got mine at target!!

This stuff is ao strong. I use it when my skin feels like it's going to break out. I feel my face literally gettimg cold when I use it. It's super intense and I always know it does a good job because it clears up my skin

This is great for oily, acne prone skin but I found out that I do not have oily skin, just the face products I was using was making me break out. It works for the right skin, just not mine.

I personally love this face cleanser. This face wash is my favorite out of all that is provided at stores. In my experience, it is very gentle to the skin, and helped with my acne a lot. I highly recommend this product.

Love the way your skin feels after you wash it off! Also combine it with charcoal nose strips and you’ll definitely feel better about your pored but really recommend this for anyone look for something charcoal based. :)

I love this!  I love the cool feeling it leaves.  It's gentle on my skin and I've seen a reduction in my blemishes.  It rinses clear and feels great even after I've rinsed. Def met my expectations. 
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?
