Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same as every other cleanser, almost. I've had acne for a long time, and can never find anything to get rid of it. Still being a teen, I have hormonal acne, stress acne, along with hereditary acne. So I guess you could say my acne is pretty bad. This cleanser smells absolutely delightful, and it keeps it under control and all, but I wouldn't say it's the best thing on planet Earth since sliced bread. I have quite the mixed feelings. I'm sure if anyone else but me tried this product, it would work great for them, (it has for all my friends) but not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biore' Free Your Pores I purchased this product for the first time almost a week ago. The first time I used it, felt really nice on my skin. I washed my face to take off the makeup instead of using the facial wipes I normally use at night. Decided to try it as it was from the pump and to my amazement, it was awesome. I'm so glad I purchased this and had no idea that it would work so quickly. My face had a huge pimple on it and I washed it and the next day it was small. I'm telling others about this product and how it works for me. Have to give it a try for yourself to see your own results. Great product! I will try the bar after I'm done with the pump. So very happy with the product! My skin is so soft and I'm looking forward to see how it works on my dark spots and post my results then. Thank you Biore' for making these products. I'm satisfied thus far!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Conflicted There is no doubt that this product is the best eradicator of small bumps and blackheads that I have ever used. If I use it both day and night for a solid week, my skin will clear wonderfully. However, the cost of clear skin, in this case, is high. As my acne lessens and I feel fresher, my skin becomes scaled and tight. If I leave it on too long, or scrub to harshly, red blotches surface on my face and remain there for a good hour. High- end moisturizers cannot remedy the havoc this cleanser brings to my cheeks, temples, and nose. If I skip a single use, my skin returns to how it was before- only moderately dry, but dirty and clogged. I will continue to use it for a few reasons, one being the wasteful nature of throwing it out, and the other that I am so desperate to have clear skin that I can survive with the crazy dryness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I’ve been using this product for about a year now and it clears my acne in 2 days I use it alongside tea tree oil. If this product isn’t working, you’re not using it right. After applying it, leave for 10/15 minutes on your face before washing, that’s how to get the most of it. Check my YouTube: Modupe OO for more details on the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Use It I bought this cleanser one week ago. I have fairly good, but oily, skin, with just a few blackheads here and there. I used this product for 3 days. I woke up on the 4th day with cystic acne on my cheeks and nose. I've never experienced anything like this, even as a teenager. Now I'm walking around with the worst case of acne I've ever had, and it HURTS. I've looked at reviews on other sites, and this is happening to many other people, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Cleanser EVER!! I love it, but more importantly it has helped my teen daughter. My daughter is not your typical teen. She really keeps up with washing her face, but still acne plagued her. After trying expensive products after products...Biore is the only thing that's worked. She loves it. Her pores are clean and her black heads gone. I love the way it makes my skin feel. We both love our clean skin.A little goes a long way.
