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.

Effective

While I was kind of turned off by the somewhat masculine scent, I liked this product and it's effectiveness in cleansing my face. The more I used it the less I was concerned with the scent and the more I liked it for it's cleansing abilities

w-o-w

IMMEDIATE results from this cleanser. I especially notice that the pores/blackheads on my nose are cleaner - much lighter in color than before I got in the shower. plus, it smells amazing. again, WOW. I got a small bottle in the free for all box, but I have a feeling I won't be able to live without it once it's gone.

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.

Amazing!!!
Purchased

I completely changed my face wash routine after buying his product. I was using proactive and was still getting breakouts. I've been using this for a little over a week, and I see an amazing improvement in my skin. I have very oily skin yet this product keeps my face so balanced without over-drying. I'm addicted to this and will continue to use it in my daily routine.

Good natural cleanser
Purchased

The smell is a little strong, but I got used to it. Very foamy cleanser - great for oily skin. I don't see much of a difference when it comes to white heads, but the blackheads on my nose are disappearing from using this morning and evening. Doesn't have a ton of ingredients in it like most cleansers. I will continue to use.

Works well!
Purchased

I've been using this cleanser for several months now, and it keeps my skin clear (no zits) and bright (is it the seaweed?) -- highly recommended for those with combo skin. Also it's great to use with a clarisonic!!
