I love charcoal scrubs! They start the second you apply and they allow you to move around when you are wearing it. I have noticed a difference in my acne after using this product.

Definitely not the greatest wash I've used on my face. It didn't really do much for my skin, it more so just dried out out more than it already was but my skin is super sensitive.

At first, this product worked really well and cleared my skin right up, but after a few continued days of use, it had me breaking out again. Maybe it shouldn't be used every day?

This product is very helpful! It keeps acne away, I use this product very often. I bought this product at Kroger. It wasn’t too expensive and it was very effective. I continue to use this product every day.

I really liked this product, being in school I stressed out and broke out a lot. I used this product I had bought at Walmart and it was a gentle cleanser and I loved it. I would definitely buy this again.

This is a little work horse. It cleans well without stripping my skin. I don’t think the charcoal works as well as other activated charcoal lines. But it’s a good skin care line.

I love this cleanser. I use it in the morning and it always leave my face tingling. There’s a slight grapefruit smell to it that always leaves me refreshed and clean. Definitely recommend
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?
