  • "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 cleanser burned my face a little and irritated. I stoped using after one or two uses. I stuck with using just the charcoal wash which worked better for me. It’s about the same price and I also got at Walmart.

Heck yes. All about these charcoal treatments, I was a little skeptic, but I really felt like it helped my skin and it felt very clean and fresh after using it. Haven’t tried very many of their products but a big fan of this cleanser.

This product is one of my favorites for the month. I have been using this product for a couple weeks and notice my skin looking a lot better. It went above and beyond my expectations. I would totally buy it again.

This is my go to face wash. I've tried others and always come back to this. It's an amazing price, so gentle yet cleansing. The packaging is nice and easy to use. Overall I love this product and it's something I always have on hand.

It was okay. Not the best Charcoal product I've used. This was my first time using it, but it was very rough on my skin. Disappointing. Did not meet my expectations. If you are interested in buying this product don't buy if you have sensitive skin.

I wanted to love this product but it just wasn’t for my skin. My skin tended to get super red and itchy after using this product. I heard great things about it and was recommended to me but it just didn’t work.

Omg! I love this charcoal cleanser, it makes my skin feel so fresh and soft. The packaging is great, a nice dispenser to have it by the sink. It’s not pricey and I’m very pleased with this product. Love it!

I use this everyday and I love it. It’s cooling and refreshing. I wish it exfoliated, but it cleans really well. A lot of cleansers don’t get all of my eyeliner and mascara off but this one does a really great job
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?
