I have always been a fan of charcoal cleansers, but could never find one that worked well with my sensitive skin. This product does just that. It is not too abrasive, does not make me react, and leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh. Definitely would recommend.

It's alright

I've used better charcoal cleansers.
I didn't love it enough to buy the full size, but it was a great pick for my box.

Clinique charcoal face wash

This face wash did clean my skin but I felt the charcoal didn't actually clean my pores.

I had enough of a sample to try this out several times. I'm happy with it but I thought it would be a little thicker.

Perfect Face Wash

I have been searching for a face wash that would thoroughly clean my skin and remove makeup without drying my skin out. This one does all of that and has made my skin so much more radiant!

Better than expected

Growing up my mom always used Clinique and she got me on their skin care wagon as well. I liked their products, but I never really saw a difference (maybe I wasn't diligent enough).

I used this once and my skin felt incredible, clean and looked good. This was without make up. :)

I'll consider purchasing a full size once I'm out of my other skin care products. I like that you can use this daily, AM and PM, and that's it's not a masque.

Refreshing

This cleansing gel feels very light and makes my skin feel clean and bright. Works very well and doesn't leave that dry, tight feeling that some cleansers do.

this small size has lasted forever. I'm so buying the full size.
