        I just ordered this after reading a few glowing reviews, and liked it so much I had to leave a comment myself! Here in PA as I write this, we are in the midst of a hot, humid, and miserable July. As a result, I'm sweating like a sinner in church pretty much every day. My combination/oily skin is working overtime, especially in my T-Zone, where I'm prone to excess shine & breakouts.

        Enter City Block Charcoal Gel. This stuff is a-ma-zing. The first night I used it, my skin felt super clean, but not overly tight or uncomfortable - just a pleasant tingling feeling and a very light rinse revealed smaller pores, refreshed skin, and an even complexion. Following up with a swipe of my Type 3 Clarifying Lotion, I noticed far less residue on the cotton ball as well - proof that this product works wonders the first time, without a lot of scrubbing or effort. HIGHLY recommend.

        Unfortunately, this did not work for me. I saw absolutely no improvement in my skin tone or appearance. I have always used Clinique face cleansers and was excited to try something different as my skin was feeling quite dull after having my daughter. I have normal to oily skin and this just didn't seem to do anything for me.

        Great Detox Cleanser to add weekly into routine

        By 

        from Las Vegas, NV

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        I've purchased other charcoal cleansers from different brands and Clinique's has the gentlest formula. I appreciate the cleanser being fragrance free, yet effective enough to help aide removing impurities. I use this once a week as a deep cleanser for my sensitive skin and I feel it's effective in helping my skin stay healthy and clear. It's priced fairly and one tube should last awhile since a pea size drop is effective in cleansing facial skin. Doesn't stain or leave behind any residue. Zero irritations.

        A Good Cleanser

        By 

        from New Jersey

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        This is a good everyday cleanser. A little goes a long way, which is something I always like. It doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or tight. However, I don't feel really, truly clean either. Maybe, it's because I am used to exfoliating scrubs but that is why I only gave it 4 stars.

        Leaves my face clean, I have acne prone skin and usually use the acne gel wash but received this as a sample and it gets me squeaky clean.

        Charcoal cleansing gel

        By 

        from AK

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        I love this cleanser! While I�m not sure if it really stays on the skin long enough to get the full benefit of the charcoal, but I use it with my Sonic brush and my skin always feels very clean & smooth. I�ve been alternating with the Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser (my other favorite) so I can use up the rest of that tube. It looks a little off-putting since the black color is not very appealing - but I was glad I tried it anyway because I ended up liking it s lot! I also use the City Block Charcoal Mask twice a week, and prior to cleansing I will use the TTDO Oil if I�m wearing heavy makeup. FYI though, this cleanser does remove lighter makeup very well on its own.

        Most Effective Cleanser Ever!

        By 

        from Fremont, CA

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        This is one of the only cleansers I've ever bought repeatedly. I think I'm on my fifth bottle. I keep one by my sink and one in the shower because this truly is a miracle workers on my skin. I tend to have occasional breakouts, especially around my hairline and definitely when I'm stressed. This baby takes care of them and I love the texture and lather of it. I briefly switched to a different cleanser when I ran out of this and had to rush to re-purchase the City Block cleanser because I noticed such a stark difference. I also use the City Block purifying mask once a week and it clears up anything this cleanser misses!

        My Skin's Oily Enough, Thanks

        By 

        from Colorado

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        I love the smell of charcoal, but I swear, it made my forehead twice as oily as normal. Didn't give a silky or squeeky clean feel, but rather something rubbery, for lack of a better word. I didn't use any sort of exfoliating brush, maybe it would work better if I did. Passed it on to a friend, who it works fine for.

        Just works.

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        I have used many, many face cleansers in my 40 years, this one just works. No more acne, does not dry my skin, no tightness, no redness, no more blackheads, my face is just clean. Would recommend this to anyone.

        It cleans thoroughly

        By 

        from Toronto

        Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel:

        I have to admit that I was skeptical when I was trying the sample as the color isn't appealing. But it works really well. My skin can be sensitive specially in spring. This product cleans my skin so well. I didn't feel itchy or tightness but only had smooth fresh feeling after rinsed it off.
