  • "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

I have always struggled finding a facial cleanser that am happy enough with to purchase again, and this one did the trick! I purchased it at Target and it is very affordable. It is gentle on skin and leaves the skin feeling fresh, but not tight and dry.

Really love this cleanser! My face feels so clean afterwards. I use multiple cleansers and I really like this one to use after a day of wearing makeup. It can be a little drying so definitely use lots of moisturizer afterwards, but other than that it's great!

This product was awesome ! I have big pores around and on my nose and when I use this stuff it makes them hardly visible,I also used it as a daily cleanser at night it cleared up my blemishes and if I had a pimple and I wash my face with this it would make it hardly visible when I woke up the next morning

okay so im not head over heels in love with this product but I do like the way itll make my face feel for the first 30 minutes after having washed it. It feels tight and clean but eventually will go back to oilly and thats no fun but for a bit its great!

Acne be gone!

This cleanser is so good and for being drugstore- even better! This cleanser has truly reduced my acne and I can literally feel the air going through my pores after using this & that’s so weird to say but it’s true. It does a great job of unclogging your pores.

not one acne scrub has ever worked for me, until i tried this one that i got from a local drugstore, it was cheap and it went on smooth, and when i rinsed it off my face was so much brighter and felt so soft, i would recommend, its cheap for a good result

This facial cleanser leaves your face feeling so clean!! My skin is dry so I try to find cleansers to accommodate that but none of them ever leave my skin feeling this refreshed and clean. I pair it with my favorite moisturizer and it always does the trick!

This is the face cleanser that is in my shower right now and it is amazing! It definitely leaves a cold tingling feeling on the skin but I like that about it. I feel so clean and refreshed each time I use it, and it doesn't make my skin feel tight and dry.

I love this product. The price is right my skin likes it it definitely can use my expectations. Mine comes in a squeeze to packaging though not this pump bottle. It feels very refreshing after you wash your face kind a cooling on your face and I like that

Pleasant scent and lathers nicely, you don't have to use a lot to achieve a good coverage of your face. After washing off skin feels a lot smoother and well nourished and pores feel tighter, however I am yet to see a miraculous change in my acne situation.
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?
