  • "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 first used this cleanser at my friends house when we were having a girls night. I really liked it so a few days later I went to Walmart and got it. It was working fine on the first two days of using it, but on the third day this cleanser broke my skin out really bad. So I had to go back to Walmart and get some new skin care products. I wouldn’t recommend this cleanser to anyone.

I feel like this cleanser does do a good job. It feels strong so I suggest. not leaving on face for too long. The charcoal cleans deep and I like how it foams up.

This product is awesome. You can feel a little tingle on your skin when it starts working. It’s very gentle too. It cleans effectively but doesn’t dry out your skin like some. It makes my skin feel soft. I would definitely buy this again.

I love all the charcoal products. The scrub leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed. Works great on all types of blemishes. Not pricey at all and at all local stores. Smells great and removes easily.

I used both the bar and liquid, the bar last longer but the liquid is convenient in the shower. Post partum and face still looks good using this product even with all the hormonal changes.
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?
