        Me:
        I get razor bumps/folliculitis when I shave and blemishes all over. When I follow the 3-step properly I have zero blemishes on my forehead or nose. Blemishes in my beard area are aggravated by aggressive shaving, improperly shaving, dull blades, lack of lubricationÉ or pretty much anything that is not a perfect shave.

        Review:
        I donÕt even know where to start with this wash. IT IS AMAZING. IÕve always been happy with Clinique products, but I feel that other products were on par with some of the things Clinique offered. Let me tell you this Charcoal Face Wash isnÕt just superior to other washes, it almost creates a new category of washes. It comes out of the tube pitch black, which is definitely jarring at first. Wait, you want me to put tar on my face?!? But unlike other clay/charcoal washes there are no visible or tangible particles in here. They are so finely ground this gel feels as smooth and silky as anything youÕve ever tried. It lathers well and turns into a white foam. ItÕs kind of cool to watch Ð how DOES it go from black to white?? When it washes off it feels as though you skin is perfect Ð like silicone rubber. Because Clinique products are unscented this doesnÕt have a Ôsmell.Õ But what it does have is so fresh and clean. I use a Clarisonic brush with this and because this isnÕt an exfoliator, it can be used twice daily if you want. My pores have disappeared as the charcoal draws out all the gunk from everywhere on your face. A previous reviewer claimed it didnÕt control oil. But itÕs the follow up products that aid in oil control. I use the oil-control exfoliating tonic and the oil-control mattifying moisturizer. At about lunch time IÕll have a little shine around my nose, but nothing IÕm ever concerned about.

        Verdict:
        Although IÕm always open to trying new products, I have doubts than any product will rival this for a long time. ItÕs difficult for me to explain how much I truly love this product. You owe it yourself to try this product.

        Of course a product cannot completely vanish oily skin, but this product is used to assist in fighting oily skin seeing that it is a water based product as per the sales person. I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now and I haven't witnessed any changes in my skin. I still find myself having to use oil blotting paper throughout the entire day until I'm home. I'll continue to use this bottle until it's finished, hoping that the current results will take a positive turn.

        Gentle yet effective cleanser!

        By 

        from Dubuque, IA

        Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

        My husband loves this cleanser as it delivers a deep down clean without striping the skin of natural oils. Also works to eliminate his mild acne without making his skin overly dry.

        Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

        I've been using this face wash for a while now and I absolutely love it. My skin is very oily and I tend to break out. But I've had no breakouts since I started using this product.

        Great value for quality and results

        By 

        from Atlanta

        Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

        Definitely recommend using this. The product is jet (charcoal) black but lathers up nicely and the deep clean feeling is legit. It doesn�t overly dry my skin after which is a plus. The charcoal face mask is also good to use in tandem with this wash once/week.

        Great Product

        By 

        from Kentucky, USA

        Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

        This product is great! It does not leave my skin feeling oily, and I have seen a difference in blackheads on my nose and forehead. I have used charcoal face washes from other brands in the past, and this is by far the best as it does not leave my skin feeling tight, oily, or dried out. I highly recommend!

        Really enjoy using this facial cleanser. Tube is large, and a little goes a long way. Makes skin soft and refreshed, product works well with Sonic Cleanser. Would buy again.

        The Best

        By 

        from California

        Comments about Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash:

        I was cautious to try this face wash because I thought the charcoal would be too drying for my face, but it wasn't! I use this daily and it has really helped with the number of breakouts that I get.
