Shamanuti Activated Charcoal Cleanser

We don'’t usually associate charcoal with cleanliness, but this natural skin cleanser is fueling a change of thought. The versatile charcoal-based formula works actively to purify and exfoliate even the most sensitive skin, and as a bonus, can also use it as a gentle shaving cream and body wash. All the basic ingredients in this cleanser are cold-processed to ensure their purity.

Best cleanser I've ever used
Purchased

I've been using this cleanser for about three months now, and it is by far the best cleanser I have ever used. I love the scent... it reminds me of lemongrass and lavender but is not at all flowery. I am very conscientious about ingredients, and I love everything that goes into this cleanser.

I have fewer breakouts, and my skin gets a light exfoliation every day. I have been complimented on my skin improving! I also use this cleanser as a shave cream. I have sensitive skin on my legs, so this gentle cleanser lubricates and soothes. NO MORE RED BUMPS!

While I wish the price was lower, I will be a devotee of this product (and this brand) for along time to come.

Meh...
Purchased

I started using this face wash and at first it seemed to be helping and making my skin smoother. However, I've been using this facewash twice a day for the past 3 months, as per my usual routine, and my face has been constantly breaking out which is unusual for me. I am not going to buy this product again.

Just okay
Purchased

Left my skin squeaky clean but didn't see any results beyond that. Did not care for the smell.

Amazing!
Purchased

I read about how good charcoal is for acne skin, so I had to try it! It was worth every penny! It cleans very well (even makeup) without drying and even cleaned up some pimples I had (that wouldn't go away with acne treatments!). I not only have acne prone skin but sensitive skin.... but don't use a cloth to rub the cleanser off it can irritate sensitive skin .... I just washed it off normal.. but be sure to leave it on for a few minutes. I love how it tingles!

Great cleanser!
Purchased

I just recently received this and so far I love it! It has a fantastic smell and it makes my face feel super clean and soft! Doesn't leave my skin feeling like there's a layer of film over it

Effective Product
Purchased

I am a huge fan of this product. I have only used it for a couple of weeks but it is already clearing my skin's tone, texture and clarity. I have even been told I'm looking over a decade younger. I'm sold.

Very nice cleanser!
Purchased

I was super excited to try this charcoal cleanser. It leaves my skin smooth and squeaky clean. It is a bit drying so I recommend using it every other day and using micellar water on the off days.

Love. This. Stuff.
Sampled

I received this cleanser a while back and didn't try it out until a few days ago. My one regret is that I didn't try it sooner! It is a simple, yet effective cleanser for my temperamental skin (read: dry, acne-prone, you name it). I love the smell, but then again, I love earthy more masculine scents.

Finally something that works!
Purchased

I have problem skin due to hormonal acne. Most cleansers I use have too much oil in them or other ingredients that make breakouts worse. This cleanser is gentle enough yet powerful enough to keep my skin acne free! I can't believe I finally found something that works!

Good not great.
Purchased

I'd probably give this a 3.5 if that was an option. It is a good size and it lasts a while. The smell is a little off putting for me, almost smells masculine and earthy at the same time. This stuff is good, it's just not great, yes it cleans my face, leaves it feeling okay, it's just definitely not something I think I would buy again. I have had acne and sensitive skin my whole life, so the upside is that it doesn't effect my sensitive skin, BUT it does nothing for acne, or redness or clearing the face.
