I have an extremely oily face and this face wash did not help at all with that. I also noticed that after a few weeks use I had gotten dry patches on my chin and in the corners of my nose. I hadn't changed my make up routine so it had to be this. I used cortizone cream on those areas and they're gone now. The packaging I hate because water gathers in the clear part at the bottom and you have to turn it upside down and empty it if you plan on taking it with you when you travel. And also it's impossible to get the lid to come off. The only thing I liked about this was the smell and the way it tingled on my skin but even that feeling diminished after using it everyday. For oily or acne-prone skin, biore face washes are much better

If this product was a word it'll be fresh. It feels very refreshing, unfortunately it makes my face tingle/feel cold. A lot of people enjoy that feeling, I don't. It did help with previously existing acne and I mean it totally eradicated them, but it didn't slow down or stop the formation of new acne. I'd recommend this to people who have light break outs because if you have extreme everywhere acne, this isn't going to solve your problem. Only temporarily stall it.

This was a bit harsh on my somewhat sensitive skin so I still prefer daily pore cleanser since I do not like harsh scrub beads. I did not like it because it seemed to scratch my face.

I love this as just my basic scrub it makes your face tingle when applied and leaves skin feeling fresh,clean and soft.It also doesn't have a bad smell.The granules are fine in it so it seems like a gentle scrub,I usually don't buy clean and clear but this stuff is great.

I absolutely love this product.
I've struggled with acne for quite a while and had a hard time finding a face wash/scrub suitable for me.
Then, I ran into this miracle worker and have been hooked since.
I can't even count how many of these I have bought for not just me but my boyfriend (who prior to use would only use Dove bar soap & never had an acne problem).
I bought one for home and one for when I sleepover my boyfriend's.
I had him try it once and he got hooked. He loves it and I constantly have to make sure he didn't use all of it before I sleep over. Its also reduced redness from his skin.

-The beads give you a refreshing burst (which is why my bf loves it).
- Works to remove makeup (however, still recommend removing makeup before wash)
-IF YOU HAVE DRY SKIN THIS IS NOT**** THE PRODUCT FOR YOU.. (Yes, this product is amazing but the big con is if you have sensitive to dry skin, it may cause irritation or peeling).
- You may need to moisturize after because it does leave skin a bit dry.

I love this face wash, I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and already I can see a difference in my skin. My pores have cleared up and my skin looks so much clearer and brighter.

I also love the fact that when you use it it has a strong fresh smell to it and once it's applied to my skin I can feel it working as my face tingles, overall I'd definitely recommend this product to anybody looking for quick visible results and cleaner, spot free skin x

I LOVE this product. I'm a full time baker and I have oily skin. So over all I come home and feel like I have a cake on my face. And this product makes my face feel squeaky clean. Now mind you I hardly wear makeup but when I do this product gets everything off my face as well. Its not ruff it does not feel scratchy and I love the tingle of it. I'm 20 and iv'e used this product since I was a freshman in high school. Its cheap and it works and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. And so does everyone that has used it iv'e switched all my friends to this cleanser as well. Id give it a try

I've used this product for years. After trying many others, I kept coming back to this, so I stuck with it. But I think skincare is not a one-product-fits-all thing, so this may not work for you and the only way to find out is to try it. I have combination skin that for some reason builds up dead skin cells pretty quickly, so I need to exfoliate at least every 2 days to keep my skin clear and smooth. That makes my skin pretty tough against exfoliants. Yours may not be. If you have sensitive skin, the beads in this product may cause irritation. But for me, they barely do anything. I primarily use this product for the cleansing. I use it every morning in the shower only on my face. It's almost like a gel consistency, which I like because cream cleansers make me break out. Every other day or every 2 days, I do a salt scrub to exfoliate and kill bacteria, then use this product after, followed by Olay Complete moisturizer. This method has helped me keep my skin very clear and smooth. But I don't think it would work well for someone with dry, sensitive skin. So try it out, give it a few weeks. That's really all you can do when it comes to finding skincare products that work for you.

I've started using this about three times a week to help address my acne-prone skin. My skin did clear up after about a week of use. There's an interesting after-tingle from the menthol, but it feels & smells more like vapour rub than a refreshing cleanse. The pluses are it's also a great body scrub, not drying, great value and gentle on the skin. The minuses are the smell doesn't agree with me and doesn't smooth out my skin texture.

Now, I actually love this product, but not for its intended use.

First of all, rough scrubs hurt your skin with superficial abrasive scratches. Chemical exfoliants, at the right pH encourage your skin to shed old cells and keep making new ones that function better and BHA's(aka salicylic acid) dissolve oil in the pore lining.

Luckily, this is gentler, with rounded beads that break down.

Unfortunately, this contains a high amount of menthol, a peppermint derivative, that is bad for skin you care about. It's an inflammatory agent. The cooling sensation is your skin's response to being irritated and slowly broken down and dried out. It commonly causes contact dermatitis.

However, it has astringent properties and perhaps even antibacterial properties and the tingling does feel nice on skin.

However, I don't use it on important parts of my face or body. I use it on my feet with a loofah. It deodorizes, cleans very deeply, and I've noticed less sweat. It puts a kick in my step with the tingle and I don't worry too much about drying and damage, because, really, I'm just cleaning my feet.

It's similar to other "screw-it, who even cares?" scrubs for areas of skin you don't care about.

The only reason I have this is because it was like a dollar at a bargain store and my sister bought it for me. And I found a great way not to waste it. I won't be repurchasing this particular scrub though.
