  • "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

Amazing Product! I could really feel it getting deep into my pores and getting all the dirt out! The price is very reasonable and the packaging makes it easy to use! I would 100% recommend to anyone battling acne! Just bought another bottle!

I’m so confused about this product.
When I first used it, my skin was extremely flushed red and irritated. I put it down for a while and came back to it months later.
When I started using it again, because I had no other cleanser, I felt pretty good about it. It made my skin feel clean but slightly irritated. In the beginning it was pretty drying around my nose and mouth, so i couldn’t use it without moisturizer. After a while, it’s like my skin got used to it?

Overall I can’t say I noticed that this specifically helped my acne.

These are two photos of my acne almost exactly a year apart. After many trial runs and sample bottles I feel like I haven’t come very far.
I’m struggling with this and can’t help but feel bummed at the lack of progress I’ve made. Definitely will be switching cleansers and changing things up in the new year. Open to recommendations.

Might buy again if I have no other option, but hasn’t really provided the results I’m desperately looking for.

I've been using this cleanser since I ran out of my natural face wash, at fiirst it was ok I liked the tingly feeling it gave everytime I used it. It does clean your face I did notice from the continued ise that my face was breaking out. Im going to be using only a few yimes a week to get that deep cleaning. Im not that upset because it was pretty cheqp at Wal-Mart. Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

Is a good product for daily use. Leaves a smooth sensation on the skin and helps to improve light acne cases. I got super oily skin and this product has helped me to control for half a day which much for me.

Amazing face wash! I use to use Clean & Ckear Acne Fighting Foam Face Wash; which did its job but ridiculously dried my skin out. Transitioning from that to Biore Charcoal Acne Fughting Face Wash was a nerve-wrecker for considering how easily my skin breaks out. I tried this for the first time the other night and even today it’s just a clean feeling every time I use it! 4 day comparison below. It’s not much, but it’s definitely a visible difference over a few days.

I just bought this a week ago so I don't have a definite review but I like this product because it leaves my skin fresh and new and it feels like my pores are breathing and feels like the product is cleaning all the bacterias, it really gets in there! I really like how it feels, you should try it!
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?

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?
