  • "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 absolutely love the way this makes my skin feel. It’s not too expensive, it has a good tingle to it, it used to work for my skin but I’m guessing my skin got used to it. I would definitely recommend though

This cleanser cleared my skin very well, but it would leave my face very, very dry. If I didn't use it often enough, my face would break out. If I used it too much, my face would be dry. I never could find a happy medium.

This cleanser is perfect for everyday use! It has a cooling effect that you would ADORE! It will give your skin a nice boost and wake you up in the morning, but will also calm your skin down at night. I like to use a silicon facial scrubber in pairing with this because it will help the product go deeper into the skin! Highly recommend!

This cleanser is AMAZING! I use this product everyday, twice a day, and it has worked WONDERS on clearing my skin of acne. It smells amazing and the pump on the bottle is nice. It went above and beyond my expectations! I would totally recommend this product to anyone struggling with acne.

This had a bit of a cooling sensation to it. It feels nice & leaves skin looking clear & fresh. Gentle on skin and a great price. I would buy this cleanser again and would recommend to others. This is great.
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?
