  • "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 this product! I feel so refreshed after I wash my face. I actually feel like it is cleaning my face because it tingles when its on the skin. The only thing that I dont like it that it doesnt lather very well at first and a lot of the product gets wasted falling in the sink. Overall I would purchase this again!

This product isn't one of my favorites for my skin. I have a mix of dry and oily skin so when I use this it is very harsh. It really does help with acne but it leaves my skin feeling very DRY. This is definitely NOT an everyday cleanser. I say if you are very desperate to try to cure your acne then I say tried it but if you don't have too much acne I say don't try this product.

I love the consistency and feel of this face wash, however it was a little bit pricey considering I never saw any extreme improvements after using it for a few months. My occasional acne stayed the same, so I wouldn't recommend   Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser  compared to other products out there.

It's a nice product however it burns a little in the morning giving a "burst awakening" feeling. The charcoal helped me skin clear more than most other products with only one wash in the morning. I don't topically use this before bed because of the cold feeling it leaves on my skin. The price is fair for a drugstore dash wash.

I have sensitive skin and oily. So it was hard to find something for both treatments because I didn't want to use different products all the time they always made my face dry so I stopped at one point and then I came across the charcoal mask and it was perfect for my skin took all my deep pores out and my skin feels fresh now.

Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser  leaves a very tingly, clean feeling on my skin after use. I do not use it every day though because the product can be a little drying, it is nothing a little moisturizer can't fix though. This product, along with a make up wipe, takes all of my make up off! I would buy again.

This is hands down my favorite cleanser ever. I had severe breakouts for a while and nothing was working to clear it, not even the most expensive of products. After washing my face with this once, I saw a significant difference of my face overnight. After continuous usage of it, my acne was gone. Great product and even greater price.

I saw tons of commercials on this and I was wanting to see if it actually would work. My mom gave it to me for my birthday and I did not use it recently. After I used it I was suprised...my skin was feeling very clean and firm. My pored seemed significantly smaller. I would definitely recommend this to someone.

this irritated my skin to a whole new level.... broke out everywhere, even had a rash on my neck. don’t recommend it, unless you really really wanna take the chance. definitely not good for oily skin, it turned mine into a sahara desert a day later. my skin was literally peeling off like a sunburn for an entire week

This cleanser leaves my skin feeling so soft and it looks much brighter. It reduces redness while reducing breakouts. It does cause my blemishes to dry out and the pump on the bottle always stops working (I've bought this 3 times and it happened each time) so I end up pouring it out of the bottle. Would have been 5 stars otherwise!
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?
