  • "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 just started using this cleanser. It smells super good and is cooling. I have already noticed a difference in my skin since starting to use it. It has been gentle on my skin and i would recommend it to anyone looking for something cooling.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! This face wash cleared up my skin in almost a week! I have minor breakouts and this is a lifesaver. It is gentle on the skin and has never dried my face out. It also smells good but doesn't seem to have fragrance that could bother skin.

While I loved the smell and feel of the face wash, it left my skin super dry! I wasn’t able to use it everyday but it did help to clear up a bit of my acne. I normally buy this from CVS. I feel the formula could be made for combination skin.

Did not clear up my skin at all. It did clean the topic layer pretty well but you could definitely find better soon care items that actually work. It was not worth the money in the slightest. I highly suggest you don't invest in this at all.

I keep this product in the shower and use it after the gym for a deep cleansing feeling! Stings a bit around the eyes and the more sensitive areas of the face. Would not recommend for use more than once a day because it may cause dry skin.

Worked at first, but found a few acne causing ingredients. I got mine at my local CVS. The first few days were fine, but now it hasn't made much of a difference. They could improve by taking out or replacing the acne causing ingredients.

One of my favorite face washes! As you wash you get this nice cooling tingling sensation that just feels like you are getting clean. I recommend this to all of my friends and I plan on repurchasing as long as nothing else catches my eye.

I use this once a day, it's not one that you should use more than once a day especially if you skin isn't super oily because it will make your skin dry and it happened to dry out my skin for a while but other than that it's really good.

This is probably my favorite drug store face wash. It definitely left my face feeling clean without feeling oily again few hours later. I honestly can go 2 days without washing my face & it still doesn't feel too oily. I'll probably never buy another drug store wash again
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?
