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.

Perfect for redness!
SampledPurchased

I was recently diagnosed with rosacea. I have a prescription cream that I use twice a day that is pretty drying and only somewhat effective. I was told to use a gentle cleanser. I was using Nutrogena, but after using this sample I have made the switch! This is great for reducing redness and bumps that you often get with rosacea. I may even stop using my prescription medication because this face wash is so effective! Worth the price since I only use it once a day (twice a day would be too drying), and you only need a little bit for each use!

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.

Heaven in a bottle
Purchased

I am still trying to figure out how I best like to use this. Put a small amount on my fingers, smooth it on my face, let it sit for a minute and wipe off with a hot towel...or use with my Clarisonic. Either way, it works best if it sits a bit; like a mask. The scent is delightful and after use, my skin feels firmer. Not dry but snappier. I look forward to washing my face with this product.

Got in Winter Essentials box

I was a little nervous to use this just because its black. Very strong scent - very musky and masculine. Does a good job at smoothing my skin. I like this but the price is hard to get past.

Not as good as Rosehips

I use the Rosehips back charcoal liquid face soup. This Shamanuti brand doesn't seem to leave my skin feeling as clean without any oiliness.

Bought and will continue
SampledPurchased

I love this product. The sample provided is amazing. The glass jar is perfect for traveling. I kept it and refill it for business trips. I bought the full size and will do when I run out. This is a great product. I feel clean without residue. I like the smell a lot, it's a bit masculine (which is a plus IMO). My face has never been clearer and I really think this product helps with that. It takes off my makeup without me having to use anything else at the end of the night. I really love this product.

Love this so far!
Purchased

Smells really nice. Leaves skin feeling fresh and tingly. Gentle. Doesn't over-dry. And I feel like it reduces the redness in my cheeks.
