  • "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 have acne prone skin and I have to be careful what I put on my face. My mom bought this for me. I never used a Biore product so I thought I would give this a try. It is the worst acne product ever. My face broke out so bad. The more I used it the worst it got. I still have a full bottle left if anyone wants it because I refuse to use this on my face ever again. I looked at the ingredients and it has fragrance in it so that could be the reason why it broke me out, but come on why would you put that ingredient in any skincare product. Smh

This cleanser burned my skin so badly! And what’s weird is that it didn’t do it at first, only after I used about a quarter of the bottle! I have no idea why or if I got a bad one but I was disappointed. Will Not repurchase.

I bought this after I loved the other Biore charcoal cleanser (forgot its name). This one broke me out sooo bad. I had a under the skin pimple for like a month straight after using this product. Not really sure why because their other face wash worked wonders for me.

This product actually made my face break out more. It also had a very unpleasant scent. It made my skin ache and I will never buy again.

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

Do not recommend this product for anyone. First time I used it, it completely broke out my skin and left it very irritated

I give this product one star because instead of clearing my skin, it made my skin break out in CYSTIC ACNE. I don’t have cystic acne so this is a nightmare for me. The moment I put the cleanser on my face, it made my face start burning and horrifically breaking out. After a few days, my face is still a burning red although it has gone down a little. I don’t know if it’s because I have sensitive skin, if I’m allergic to salicylic acid, or what. I wanted to try something different and this was cheaper than the normal products I use. I have gone back to using a cream benzoyl peroxide treatment which actually clears my skin without leaving it a burning red, and it seems to be helping. If you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend at all.  Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser

Y’all! Please don’t use any Biore products. This was my face after using a Biore product twice. I had severe hives on my face for a week. It has harsh acids and chemicals in it! It needs to be taken off the market.
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?

Bioré Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleanser I have very clogged pores, does this help clear them out fast?

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?
