  • "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've been trying to find something that would work for my acne on my face pretty much since I started getting acne. I recently saw this in the store, and since it had charcoal in it, I decided I would try it. This was also going to be my last try at clearing up my skin before resorting to drugs like Accutane. 

I'm glad I saw this in the store because it has slowly been clearing my face of acne. Like any skin product, it's going to take a while for it to fully start working. The first week of trying this I realized that my skin was looking less red, and I was having fewer breakouts. The second week of using this has pretty much cleared all of my acne up. I still get spots every so often, but that's just going to happen with my skin. I no longer want to go on Accutane, and I've switched to a lighter coverage foundation because I don't have to cover up breakouts anymore.

I really enjoyed this product! It made my face feel extremely soft and I could see in difference in my skin! It also did not break my face out like other facial products! Definitely would recommend this!

The smell is a little off putting. I do love the tingle I get when I wash my face. I can use it daily and it’s very gentle. I notice if I haven’t used this in a couple days.

This is my favorite face wash out of everything I have tried! Not only does it thoroughly clean your skin and get your make up off but it is general and leaves a nice cold refreshing feeling after.

Really like that this product has charcoal in it since that’s what’s in right now! Really gentle on the skin. Has a bit of a smell but not bad at all. Did a really good job at cleaning my skin and keeping my acne at bay.

This is the only facial cleaning product that has actually helped my skin. I have incredibly dry skin, and nothing seems to clean it too well, or help it to be hydrated. This product is perfect.

This product is okay.... it does tend to make your skin greasy a little faster than I would like (I have extremely oily skin) but I rather it do that than dry it out...

I started using this a month ago. I decided to try it, because I was noticing that I was getting blackheads with the other cleanser I was using. I've always gotten occasional pimples on my face, but since I've started using the Biore Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser, there has been a noticeable decrease in blackheads, and I haven't gotten any pimples. My face feels clean and not overdried (I do use a moisturizer as part of my daily routine, though), and there is an icy, wake-you-up sensation when you use it. I like it!

Amazing face wash! I use to use Clean & Ckear Acne Fighting Foam Face Wash; which did its job but ridiculously dried my skin out. Transitioning from that to Biore Charcoal Acne Fughting Face Wash was a nerve-wrecker for considering how easily my skin breaks out. I tried this for the first time the other night and even today it’s just a clean feeling every time I use it! 4 day comparison below. It’s not much, but it’s definitely a visible difference over a few days.
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?

does this make your face feel fresh after washing and does it dry your skin? i have oily acne prone and dry skin.

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?
