The product was good, in terms of making my face soft after I used it. It made my face a little dry after a few minutes. I felt my face was clean, but I always wash my face before and after to try to make sure the charcoal cleanser works. Other than that, I will continue to use it.

The best product out there for your face. I love this so much and it’s so cheap. This is the only product I take home and see a difference on my face. This product leaves my face nice and clear. I would also recommend this product to anyone out there that’s struggling with acne/blackheads.

This is my beauty must have!!! I have sensitive- combo - acne prone skin. It has a nice cooling feeling when I wash my face. Helps me with my acne significantly, I've noticed when I don't use it I will get a breakout. Such a great deal at $6 and lasts me a few months! Biore is a great affordable skin care brand.

I really noticed a difference in my pores and acne breakouts, I absolutely loved the tingling sensation it really feels like it’s cleaning deep down, it makes you break out a little when you first use it only because it is cleaning out all he dirt in your skin it is such a great product

I love this scrub because it gets into all the crevasis and spots that always seems to have build up and it cleans it right up! I use this at least once a week, especially on a Friday night when I'm home relaxing after a hectic work week. Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser

I use this specific product every other day as soon as I wake up and it works wonders for my skin. I have sensitive skin so when it comes to treating my acne I have to ensure it's not gonna cost me breaking out because of my sensitive skin . With Biore I never have to worry about that ❤

Didn't clear up my acne but definitely made my skin soft and dried it out. It's definitely a good product for the price. It was my first time using it and it passed my expectations. I probably wouldn't buy again cause it didn't help me but I'd definitely recommend it for someone else!

Great for oily/ acne prone skin. This cleanser is light and wont irritate your skin. I noticed great improvement in such a short amount of time. I use it for day and night 6 days a week (i use a exfoliator 1 day a week). If you have oily/acne prone skin, i suggest you give this a try!!

I recently had a baby and it made me have horrible acne, I've never had a problem before. So I tried this after many failed products, and just after the first try I could tell a major difference. It dries out my face a little bit, but as long as I put on lotion afterwards it's great. I'll definitely keep buying this product.

I've been using this when my skin is extra oily or when I have a lot of blackheads. I LOVE this. It has a tingling sensation that feels amazing and leaves my face looking noticeably cleaner. I would definitely recommend this to others, especially since it's such an affordable product.
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?
