Not great for acne

By Jen

from USA

Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

In the first couple uses I thought this product was great, it shrunk my pores to the point where they were almost invisible and i made my skin an amazing texture. After I got about halfway through the bottle I noticed that I have been breaking out more than I have been in almost a year. I would only recommend this product if you intend to use it for pores, blackheads, and skin texture. But be careful if you are acne prone because you will break out very quickly.

    Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

    My whole life since I was maybe 9 or 10, I have dealt with severe acne, I am 19 years old and I have finally found my solution. This cleared out my pores and soothes my skin amazingly. I have oily and combination skin. This is a more gentle clean, so for me it does not dry my skin, but does maintain the face clear and minimizes the pores. I have created a steady routine, beginning with this cleanser making sure that I wash consistently in the areas where I have the most pore, then pat drying my face, following up with the Witch Hazel as a toner, then with the clean and clear acne spot treatment (depends how my face is) then with the Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum and moisturizing with the rosewater facial spray. Will definitely keep buying!

      Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

      First of all my skin type is oily. I use this product after I wake up every morning and every night before I go to sleep. TBH... I just love this product. It helps me keep a clear face. This product helps my skin feel bomb, even after a long day of wearing make-up. Great stuff

      Do not buy!

      Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

      Did nothing for my skin except break me out! If you're really struggling with acne, buy proactive md. I've only used it for a couple days now and I see a bug difference already.

      Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

      It's a nice smelling product, easy to use blah blah. Anyway, every time I use it, it makes my face red and splotchy and very hot which is odd since I'm not allergice to any of the ingredients in the face wash, nor is my face very sensitive. It stays like this for a solid 30-45 minutes and it hurts to touch. I have noticed a decrease in oil but I can only assume you don't produce a whole lot of oil when all your face skin is chemically burnt off. It's cheap though so I'll give it that and removes makeup like a champ. Would I buy again? lol no

              Comments about Bioré Charcoal Acne Cleanser:

              Right after using this, my skin felt so nice and it really helped to keep my skin less oily. However, on the third day of using this, my entire face broke out in little tiny pimples. I have never in my life experienced this bad of a breakout. Definitely will not buy again.

                I use this as my regular face wash twice a day. It helps with shrinking my pores and doesn't dry out my skin.
