  • "After receiving a free sample of both the Combination Balancing Cleanser & Pore Unclogging Scrub as a promotion from Biore's Facebook page, I began using them both regularly (I used the Cleanser once per day & the scrub twice per week to work with my slightly oily/combination skin which is also very sensitive & acne-prone). After about two weeks, my skin started reacting negatively to the Cleanser so I switched to my previous daily face wash, but I continued with the Pore Unclogging Scrub twice weekly. After my sample was empty, I bought a full bottle (so I must have liked it!) The new & improved Pore Unclogging Scrub (Biore recently re-released it, hence the free samples & new packaging) has a clean scent & creamy texture with small beads that aren't grainy like other scrubs I've tried. This is nice because if the granules are too tough they'll tear your skin which is harmful. The Scrub rinses cleanly & my skin physically feels clean after using it. It also doesn't inflame my skin which is sensitive to smells & has the occasional acne breakout. This product is great for all skin types but is especially perfect for oily/combination skin." in 693 reviews

A skincare lady at Ulta convinced me to get this along with another Biore exfoliant (I don't remember what it's called at the moment). I used it all summer and it barely did anything for me. I saw little improvement with my skin over the summer, but at least it didn't make my skin worse!
There were a few things I really loved about this product in particular, though. I loved the cool feeling that it gives you when you wash it off. It really makes you feel refreshed and clean. It's also really quick to clean off. Usually you have to take a little bit to wash off all the product from your face with other cleansers but this only takes like 5 seconds to wash off.
It definitely wasn't worth the price at Ulta. If you're considering buying this I'd definitely recommend that you get it from Wal Mart or Target.

This is great if you only suffer from blackheads, oil, and the occasional pimple, but when I tried a more extreme wash -Neutrogena wash and mask, using benzoyl peroxide after using this for over a year, I noticed my skin got much better.  This product is good, but not great.  However, I do like that the active ingredients are natural.

Cleared up my skin within 2 weeks would completely recommend this to anyone with oily and acne prone skin. This helps maintain my skin clear as well. Its also super inexpensive found in any local beauty supply store. Hope this could help you guys.

I absolutely love using Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser daily! 😍 The smooth minty sensation on my skin makes me not only feel but know that my pores are cleansed and hydrated at the same time. All it takes is 5 min! This product is so simple and easy to use and it makes my skin glow like no tomorrow! I highly suggest that you use this product!❤️🙌🏻

I recently bought this for my nighttime skin routine for my boyfriend and I because we suffer from blackheads and really big pores. We’ve been using it for a couple weeks now and it really has helped us shrink our pores!!! It also helps with my boyfriend’s skin because he is very oily. Hopefully the more we continue it our pores disappear soon:)

I had to try for myself. It prevent breakouts and helps balance oils in skin unlike other cleansers with charcoal. Most dry me but biore charcoal recipe is worth the $8 or more. Trust me. You don't need much either. Damp face, apply a dime in circular motion up and hop in the shower. Face and skin is superb clean and refreshing for the morning.

This cleanser in my opinion was nothing special. It was just an ordinary scrub. Didn’t really do much for my skin that I noticed, but I know some of my friends really like this, so maybe it’s just my skin. My skin felt clean after using it, but it didn’t do anything extra like tighten my skin or make it feel radiant. It was just very plain in my opinion, but it does clean the skin well, I will say that!

This cleanser has become a necessity in my skin care routine. My skin feels so clean after using it and my skin does not feel oily and does not dry it out. I'm obsessed with the charcoal trend and really feel that this has improved my skin and acne. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good face wash that is cheap and effective.

I love this product.  The charcoal is not chalky. This product is gentle on your skin. It has a cooling feeling that is amazing.  It’s a great value. The packaging is nice and sturdy. So if you drop it in the shower it’ll be okay.  I would recommend this.  It helps clear breakouts and leaves your face feeling amazing

This is actually my first time purchasing a Biore product. I actually like this charcoal face wash . The product it self is a little bit thick and smells pleasant. Now I have oily face and a bit of acne . This product would dry up your face a little bit . What I like about it is that it gives me a fresh sensation when I use it as it had mentol or a type of refreshing alcohol. Would think about buying it again.

Which do you think works better for blackheads the charcoal cleanser or the Biore strips. I've only used the strips but find I'm sore after .

How does this smell? Does it help with acne? How long before you saw results if so? Pros/cons?
