Shamanuti

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Morning and night, massage a small amount into face using upward circular motions. Wait for a minute as the cleanser sets. Wipe away with your hands and lukewarm water or a damp cloth.

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

Fresh face

Extremely cleansing and fresh faced feel after using this product just once. Charcoal is an up and coming revelation in facial rejuvenation and this product is one of the forerunners in this field.

Pleasantly surprise do!

Fantastic! I wasn't sure what to expect but am sold! A tiny amount, pea sized maybe, will lather up nicely and thoroughly clean my face and remove makeup residue. My face feels smooth and hydrated afterwards. I am in my early 50's and my skin is drying in spots. This product does not dry me out like many other products do, even those designated for sensitive skin. I will buy this before my sample runs out. It's a complete winner!!!

Good cleanser but not so good smell

I really didn't like how this product smell. I love using cleansers so i'll definitely be trying this out again because it made my skin feel great, but the smell was not too pleasing.

Great cleanser!

This is why I love Birchbox. Never heard of this brand, and would never have found this cleanser, nor been likely to try something like this. But wow - it is great! Superior quality, gentle and effective. Plus great scent. I haven't bought yet, but only because I'm trying to use up what I have of other products before buying more. Well done, Birch Box!

If you've used one you've used them all

It was ok. Nothing crazy or ground breaking. I have many similar products like this so unfortunately wasn't too impressed with it.

Leaves skin feeling clean but not dry

I have sensitive skin (rosacea) and am often reluctant to try new cleansers. I was curious about the charcoal and tried it out. It left my face feeling really clean! It got off all the makeup but without making my face feel tight.
