Final Verdict

NYX Stripped Off Whipped Charcoal Cleanser gives your skin a good cleanse, ridding your skin of impurities, probably some purifying, plus a matte skin finish too. Although, these could be the only benefits that you can derive from this US $12 cleanser which is still fair enough at this price point. If you have acne to tackle and your skin can tolerate it, get a product that has alpha and beta hydroxy acids in it to go down to the root of your acne problem —that is, bacteria that has grown out of proportion.
