  • "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 just started using it and it helps get rid of pimples. I use it only on areas that i have pimples amd it helps a lot.

I actually stopped using all the super expensive acne products other than spot treatment upon discovering this wash. When used twice a day this is a great advocate against breakouts and otherwise impurities in your skin. Biore is already great and then then went and added charcoal, score!

I absolutely love biore's charcoal acne cleanser. My face felt so soft and clean everytime. And my face was so clear! I normally breakout during the summer and "that time of the month" but with the charcoal cleanser my face stayed clear. The pump was an added bonus as it kept my bottle clean and made it easy to use.i would definitely recommend.

This works well for my oily skin! I would do this scrub once and the next day I’d notice results. With this scrub, it dries up your acne but it’s efficient, that’s for my skin at least. Try it out for yourself to know how it feels like!

I borrowed this cleanser from a friend during a vacation, and have been hooked ever since. It thoroughly cleans my skin from dirt, oil, and makeup without being too harsh at all. Leaves my skin clean yet soft and not dried out! I purchase a new bottle every time I run out.

This has changed the game for my skin. If you have oily skin this will work amazing for you. It clears all oil and makes your face feel so refreshed. I use it twice daily and wouldn’t trade it for any other.

This cleanser is so effective! It is very gentle on the skin and is so deep cleansing! You can see results in as fast as 1 day! It also smells so great! The application is so smoothened is my number one favorite facial wash! Kind of hard on sensitive skin though.

This product works really well! It doesn't have a bad scent and it leaves your skin feeling really soft! This product is in my top 3 favorite facial cleansers.
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?
