Gentle on my skin and doesn't overly dry it out. Has sort of helped clear up my skin, definitely not as much as I was led to believe but still overall I'm happy with the product.

I love this. I have really sensitive skin and this didn't make my face red or dry it out. This was my first time purchasing this product and I would definitely buy it again. Results show in about two weeks

Great product , great consistency. Overall I’d give this product 4 stars. Just because it didn’t work out for my face. When I first started using it , I loved it. Over time it dried my face out though /:

I love the way this makes my face feel after cleaning. I usually just grab it at target or rite aid. It helps clear up my acne and definitely would recommend to another person to use! I would buy again !

I used this for the first time this past summer and fell in love with it! I have very oily skin and it eliminated the oils that built up on my face through the day! I will definitely buy that product over and over again!

The product is really strong but super fresh. It does minimize the appearance of the pores but doesn't erase them completely. You can buy it at Walmart or target . I love the fresh feeling after I use it

It really made my skin feel soft and refreshed. I was really skeptic about putting charcoal on my face but now that I've dipped my toe in it I couldn't be happier.

This product feels really nice on the skin and it smells really nice. It leaves kind of a minty feeling on you skin after you use it, so your skin does feel really clean after.

i use this product 2 daily and i absolutely LOVE IT! this is the only product i’ve used so far that is able to make my skin feel clean and fresh. i love the tingly sensation it gives off when you use it
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?
