I love Cliniques City Block Purifying Charcoal cleansing gel. It removed all the impurities from my pores leaving my face glowing. Safe to say it took a whole city block worth of grime off of my face! Fabulous product and by far my fav charcoal cleanser!!

great for combination sensitive skin

I used this 3 times a week for several weeks and skin was clearer and not as dry. I have combination skin that gets flaky and this worked great

Best facial cleanser for my skin type!!

I have combination skin and this product cleanses but doesn't dry out my skin. I use it every morning in the shower. I no longer have breakouts and a little bit goes a long way. I will definitely purchase the full size once this runs out.

Clean, fresh, moisturized......

I really love this cleansing gel! I bought it based on my existing knowledge of the brand itself, but have never tried this before purchasing the full-sized version. Just the first wash was great! My pores seemed to close up right away, my skin was very clean and not at all dry. My "school stress skin" is all cleared up!

I love charcoal cleansers and Clinique's version is a good one. It is indeed gentle and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without over-drying.

One of my best face cleansers ever
SampledPurchased

I thought I had reviewed this already because I love it so much. I discovered it as a sample in my Birchbox and have bought full bottles of it twice now. It seems paradoxical for something like charcoal to clean you up, but MAN this stuff works. My face, which is really picky in its reaction to certain products, LOVES it. It takes off the dirt and grime of the day and even makeup too, but never in a way that dries out the skin – and I never have any breakouts or zits at all when I am using it. If I could afford it, this is what I would use all of the time.
