I purchased this product expecting high quality, and that is what I received... unfortunately I have to give a lower rating for my own personal experience. I think my skin may not be suited to the formula. I used the product and felt refreshed immediately and it leaves your skin feeling clean. Although, I broke out worse than I had prior to using this product - it exacerbated my skin issues. I do not have acne, just a few blemishes here and there but while using this product I broke out all over. This may have been the charcoal, giving a deep clean pulling all impurities to the surface, possibly! But in my opinion, it is not worth the use because my skin never got better.
