Literally made my face worse.
I ran out of my previous face wash and couldn’t find it anywhere else, so I bought and started using this shit, after just 2 days my face was filled with tiny bumps and was breaking out and covered in rashes. It also hurts, it isn’t exactly itchy but I just wanna scratch it, it burns alot. Do NOT use this face wash. I only made this account to warn of how bad this face wash is.image.jpg

Sent from hell

For the love of baby Jesus and the 3 wise men do not use this product. I’ve been a bit more spotty than usual with the whole Coronavirus stint which is a mix of hormones, not washing my face as much as I’m depressed and eating 100,000 calories a day on takeaways. Anyway I strolled into my local bargain shop and saw this on sale and though “why not, their nose strips are good. I’ll try it. And it’s only 2 quid.” Little did I know 8 hours later I’d be in the bath rubbing this stuff into my face only for it to sting like I’d just kicked a hornets nest and got attacked a trillion times. It was on for maybe 10 seconds before I panicked thinking I was going to end up like the elephant man and I washed the sh*t right off quicker than you could say Carole Baskin killed her husband. I don’t know what coal they are using but I’m presuming it’s the same coal that Hitler warmed his crusty feet up at the fire with. I then went to see the damage only to greet my boyfriend on the landing to him asking if I need an epi pen and saying “U lOoK liKe a ToMaTo hAhaAha” I’ve looked in the mirror and all I can describe it as - as if I have super high blood pressure and I love the sunbeds. My skin is now tight and burning and thank god we are in isolation because I don’t have any Rouge coloured foundation to match. Let’s hope I don’t need an epi pen after this. I want my 2 pound back!!!

Tl;dr cleared acne and replaced it with hives

While for me, this product rid of what little acne I had (with the combination of my other products), my face has become covered with hives; at first I was unsure what was causing it, so I ceased using this product as well as adjusting my diet and anything else I could think of. After testing one thing after another, multiple times, I realized I only got the hives after using the cleanser; I am aware of other allergens which cause a similar effect, this I was extremely cautious as to avoid those while trying to locate the new cause of the reaction. 

I'm lead to believe that they changed their formula as I had used the product a year or two ago with no reactions; if this is the case, I plead they return to the original formula..

I would give this below zero stars! It burnt My face and it is horrible. My skin is coming off! I went to the hospital, do not buy it ! Do not! :smileys_n_people_36::*:smileys_n_people_9::smileys_n_people_32:

Mad and confused!

Hello, so I have been using Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser for about two or so weeks now. I followed the instructions and did as it says. Which since I did as told, my face and lips started burning after the use, and I am very familiar with face cleanser and this burn wasn't something I have experienced before. I have also notice how much more often I see white heads or blackheads appearing on my face. The only reason why I used this product in the first place is because my dearest mother got it for me as a Christmas gift because she knows how much I struggle with finding the cure to my acne. I am very disappointed in this product and I am so sad because I finally thought I found a product that works...

I would give this a negative number if I could. My daughter has always used the biore baking soda cleaner so she decided to use the deep cleanser once a month. BAD DECISION!!! We ended up at the hospital with a steroid injection, steroid cream and a 7 day oral steroid.

Her face is burning and severely itchy! Never again! Luckily, she only applied it to her trouble areas.

Red burn

Would give 0 rating if I could. I used it on my chin and small spot on my forehead and made my whole face red and burns. Didn't help anything.

Did nothing

Used this a couple times before I looked into ways of reducing blackheads and saw zero improvement in my skin. [redacted] Look into niacinamide, AHAs, and BHAs instead.
