Wanted to love it but my skin didn't
I used this cleanser for two days and loved the way it made my skin feel initially. I saw some clearing of blemishes and left my skin feeling clean and fresh. The third day I broke out in acne and a rash like I haven’t had since I was a teen (I’m 41). I took a break from it for a week to let it clear and tried it again to see if it was something else causing the skin issues but once I resumed using it, the issues reoccurred. I think I may have an allergy to one of the ingredients in this cleanser. I can see it working for many. It definitely cleans well but something in it just didn’t work for me.
May not be suitable for those with sensitive eyes and skin
I really wanted to like this product because I like Follain and the product itself is an appealing color and texture. However, it burned my eyes and caused a mild rash on my skin. I wouldn’t normally consider myself to have sensitive eyes and skin, but something in this product was too harsh for me. None of the other reviews mentioned this, so maybe this is an isolated experience / specific to my skin….
I love this cleanser! The recommendation to use it for a minute as a mask is excellent. It really clears out my pores and I think my complexion has improved since I started using it!
This cleanser was a gift from my wife. It works great especially the one minute extra detox! My skin has been clear since I started using. Highly recommend!
I LOVE this new product!! I didn’t realize how “oily” my skin was until I started using this product. it has done wonders for balancing my skin tone and reducing my natural redness!!
FAVORITE cleanser ever
I absolutely LOVE this cleanser. As someone with normal-dry skin I always find that cleansers leave my face feeling dry and tight – not this one! This cleanser feels so silky and smooth when it goes on and I love that it foams. My skin is also acne-prone and I haven’t had any breakouts since starting to use this cleanser. This has been a major savior during this time of mask-wearing and sweat. I’m telling all my friends about it – I can’t recommend it enough.
I wish I had taken before and after photos for this cleanser. My normally dry skin has been oily, red and broken out this summer, and the improvement even after one night of using the oil control series (plus the toner, which was already part of my routine) was remarkable. I leave it on for a minute, as suggested.
I don’t traditionally have super oily skin, but with the heat and humidity of summertime combined with some super sweaty midday workouts, I was definitely experiencing some breakout and overall skin dullness. I saw a noticeable difference in my skin just once! It was a little bit brighter and didn’t collect as much of a ‘sheen’ after a long day at work. Love this product and can’t wait to keep using it.
This cleanser is amazing! My skin is super oily and this worked SO well.
New Summer Must-Have!
I was initially worried that this might dry out my skin too much, but honestly, this really is for every skin type! Between suncreen and sweating under a mask, using this each night has made a noticiable difference after just a few days. Can’t reccommend it enough, and actually preferred it to Follain’s Hydrating Cleanser, which had been my pervious go-to.
Skin Feels Great, I Don't Say That Often!
My girlfriend is just in love with these products, it is always the topic around dinner. Two nights ago she made me try this balancing cleanser for oil control. I typically get really oily skin during the summer and I used this cleanser at night and felt a huge difference after one use the next day. My skin felt soft and smooth, even with the beard and my face was not nearly as oily at the end of the day. 10/10 would recoomend this to every guy and girl out there. Keep up the good work.
Absolute favorite cleanser
I’ve had this cleanser for a week now and have truly seen changes in my skin. It is my go-to in the mornings and at night. For years, I’ve had oily, shiny skin (especially in the summer heat). Since trying this cleanser, my skin has been more shine-free, smooth, and less congested. The cleanser comes out as black gel and turns into this white, foamy lather, which is so cool! Seriously would recommend this product.
As someone with alligator dry skin, I always shied away from any ‘oil control’ products. But now that I’m minimally wearing makeup and slathering on sunscreen instead, sweating from workouts and yardwork, and putting a face mask on, my skin was oily and breaking out. This cleanser has the best texture and gets out all the gunk without leaving me dry or flaky. In about a week my breakouts are cleared and my skin feels less grimy. Highly recommend!
Detoxify without the dry
Love that this cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed and not stripped. Has been so helpful for balancing skin and controling congestion with the increase in heat and humidity and wearing a mask.
This cleanser is a MUST for anyone with oily/combo skin. The charcoal is such a game changer and leaves my skin feeling clear and bright without feeling stripped. I also have been wearing it as a mask for a minute or two before rinsing it off. Also, can’t beat that price point!
