  • "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

This was a good product. But I'm not sure if I would use it again. I didn't really enjoy how it felt on my skin but it works good for other people because I've seen really great reviews about it. It just didn't really work for me.

I am in LOVE with this facial cleaner. I always use it after my Formula 10.0.6 exfoliating scrub. This cleaner is SO calming. It leaves a nice and cool feeling after using. My face feels so clean when I’m done using it!

This cleanser really cleans the skin well. I do have acne prone skin and although my acne isn’t gone it has improved. It does feel very slightly harsh but nothing major. I’m on my second bottle and will purchase again.

I love using this product when I'm in the shower Bc it has helped to eliminate my acne from my face. First time using it & it was very gentle just like other Bioré products. I'd totally buy it again & chances are that I will!

This cleanser clears your acne very well and I will always repurchase it. I 10/10 recommend it. It isn’t very pricey either which is always a plus !! I don’t know how natural it is but I honestly am in love with it :)

I have been using biore products for the past 10+ years. It is the only brand that managed to keep my acne at bay! The cleansers should also be used with a facial lotion though! They tend to make my skin a little dry.

I went to Walmart to just grab some facial products and decided to try this out and I really did like this product. It wasn't very expensive and can be used for a quick day to day exfoliating and I would buy it again.

This is a great product for oily skin, large pores and blackheads. I use this product often and I think it does a great job, but I have had some more effective products. No harsh smells and a great price makes it a fab product

I am in love with this product, I use it everyday. It really cleanses and makes my skin feel so soft and silky. I have a lot of acne on my forehead and this really helps clear it. I recommend for everyone to have this.
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?
