      • Enlarged Pores

      Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

      I found out that this cleanser has the exact same ingredients as the women's city block purifying charcoal cleansing gel (but you get a little more in this bottle for a 50 cent difference), so my husband and I both use this cleanser. I can see a visible difference in the blackheads, especially on my nose. My pores appear much smaller and the number of blackheads are reduced. The cleanser itself is a black gel that foams into a white lather so it doesn't leave a stain on your washcloths. I highly recommend this.

            Bought it overseas but can't find it in Brazil

            Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

            When I used to live in Japan I bought it many times in Dubai while waiting for my flight. Unfortunately I can't but it in Brazil. I've been searching in many websites and stores but it seems difficult to find it. This is the best product I have ever tried specially to avoid oily skin and dark spots! I would really like to be able to buy it again! Clinique please send it to Brazil!

            Pros

            • Helps with occasional breakouts

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Use twice daily for best results

              Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

              This facial wash costs more than a drugstore brand but it's worth it. It lasts twice as long because it lathers up really well. My husband uses it with his Clarisonic. He's bald headed and gets pimples every now and then. Charcoal is a good acne reducer and Clinique now replaces his Neutrogena cleanser.

                Hi, my boyfriend is trying new face cleansers. He has a normal skin type (not oily but not dry) and I was wondering if this product would work for him? He only gets a few pimples every now and then.

                  Hi! This product was designed for a more oily skin type. If you have dry skin, sensitive skin, you are probably looking for something with a little more cushion for the skin. You may want to try Clinique's Extra Gentle Cleansing Foam. If the dryness you are experiencing is a tight and uncomfortable feeling, this will give the skin more comfort after cleansing. If it is flakiness that you see on the skin, there is a need for more exfoliation.
                  All Clinique products are great for sensitive skin. They are all fragrance free and all allergy tested. We test each product on a panel of 600 people, 12 times each. That equals 7200 applications. If one person has any type of reaction, we reformulate. You can always feel safe using products from Clinique.
                  Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                  This product is not a lightener. It is a cleanser that draws out impurities from the pores. It is a nice cleanser for oily skin. Thank you for your interest in Clinique!

                  Hi! Yes, this cleanser detoxifies and draws out impurities with the purifying powers of Bamboo Charcoal. It helps to dissolve pore clogging dirt, excess oil and surface shine to unclog pores. You may also want to try the Clinique For Men Sonic System Deep Cleansing Sonic Brush and Brush Head. It is a perfect partner. If you continue to experience breakout, we also have an entire Acne Solutions Cleansing line to fight bacteria causing breakout.
