  • "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 product didn't seem to cause any acne but also don't seem to help what i had go away any faster. It does leather and get foamy. I'm not super impressed tho. Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

This face wash is my favorite drug store acne face wash. My face is very sensitive to face washes and this one does not irritate my face at all or dry it out. It has a nice cooling effect and o would definitely recommend it to other people.

Like most people I am on the charcoal face wash craze. I feel that this face wash in particular was my favorite so far. It’s easy to pump out and it goes on well. My face felt incredible after using this product. I will definitely buy again!

Absolutely love this product! I have been using it for a few years. Has a nice tingle and really clears everything up. It does dry out my skin a little though, so you have to definitely use a moisturizer.

This product it absolutely horrible. If you have acne prone skin (like me) don't use this product. It does not Minimize your pores, it just clogged my pores even more. So if you have oily skin and acne I don't recommend you buy this product

I am obsessed with this project. I love the charcoals and that it feels that it is really deep cleaning my face. You can feel the charcoal when you are washing your face and can really tell it has made a difference for me. Highly recommend.

Biore Charcoal Acne Scrub makes my skin feel squeaky clean! I got it due to my skin feeling oily no matter what I used, and it was a game changer. Not only is my skin not oily anymore, but my nose isn't clogged with little bitty blackheads.
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?
