This is the first cleanser I've ever tried that didn't dry my skin to painful tightness. I've used it a free time now and I'm thrilled with it . I love that it's black. How much more black could it be? None, none more black ( a little spinal tap for ya)

Loved it!

This charcoal infused gel really works to get the impurities out of your skin. My skin felt like new and was left smooth and shiny. It almost felt like a face lift, which I love about it. It does not irritate my sensitive skin like some charcoal exfoliators do.

Great Product!

I have always been a fan of Clinique but I have never tried any charcoal cleansers before. They always seemed unappealing to me. This sample changed my mind! What an excellent product! Left my skin very clean without all of that tightness that usually comes with it. I am definitely a fan!

The Clinique brand is amazing. It works great with my sensitive skin. The charcoal cleanser seems to leave my skin soft and extremely clean.

My skin has improved so much when I started using this. I was skeptical at first, but I have fallen in love with this cleanser.

Love Clinique, but...
Sampled

I’m a big fan of Clinique, BUT... this this charcoal fell cleanser was lukewarm for me at best. Honestly, I felt like I needed to wash my face again after use. This might work for someone looking for a super mild cleanser? My advice...use the dermologica daily superexfoliant instead!

Great Charcoal Cleanser!
Purchased

I've been using this Cleanser about 3 times a week, and BIG difference with my skin! My pores have gotten smaller and skin has become smoother. This gives my skin a nice tone as well. Highly recommend this to anyone with oily skin or who wants smaller pores and a deep cleanse!

Gentle Cleanser
Purchased

I've tried lots of cleansers and a majority of them left my face dry but not this one. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and doesn't irritate the patches that usually get dry.
However, it doesn't do much for cleaning out my pores or my oily skin.
