It was good for most of my family but it didn’t help that much with my acne. It helped a little but wasn’t improving that much. And it isn’t very cheap. My new face was is very affective and affordable but if it works for you and you can go buy it you should use it. Just didn’t like it for my face.

THIS. IS. THE. BEST. FACE. WASH. I. HAVE. EVER. TRIED. My sister was using this facewash and went to college and left it behind 1 year ago. While she was gone I snuck a little bit and was amazed at how clean my face felt. I had to go out and get my own and have been using it religiously ever since.

This is an amazing product. This item has helped my acne out a lot. I started using this product about 2-3 months ago and back then my acne was really bad. Now , my skin has cleared up completely and i feel confident as ever!! This past bottle is my 6th bottle !! Definitely a go to skincare product!

I love the fresh smell and the clean feeling it leaves on my skin. A little goes a long way, too! I would have given it 5 stars, but I haven't had 5-star results. It works, don't get me wrong, but it has not been able to help with the patches of acne that I get on the sides of my face nor my nose.

I wasn’t a huge fan of this product. I had a lot more breakouts than usual. I don’t know if it was because it was pulling out impurities but I stopped using it. It might work for other people but it just didn’t for me. Definitely wouldn’t buy it again. Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser

It was a pretty good product. The first time I used it my face broke out bright red because I used it while taking acne medication. My sister then tried using it and said it didn’t make her break out at all and she enjoyed the feel. Just be sure to be careful if you have sensitive skin like mine!

I love this product from Biore! I use this at least once a day. Just one pump is fine for a clean face. It is a gentle cleanser that leaves me feeling refreshed. I can definitely see the difference after using it religiously for a few weeks! I'll be buying another bottle when I finish this one!

I have used a LOT of expensive cleansers, and I somehow always return to this one. It removes all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean yet it doesn't feel stripped. Love the pump that it comes with! Very convenient to use. Obviously, this is my holy grail-- and it's so cheap!

This worked for about two weeks, and then the progress stopped. I'd highly recommend using a really hydrating moisturizer after this product because it dried out my skin, and I have combo / oily skin. The packaging is really simple, but it's the perfect size for the bathroom and every day uses.  
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?
