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.

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.

Love this! This cleanser feels like a serum, or gel. I know it is a cleanser but it firmed up my skin better than my anti aging products! My skin had such a clean, fresh, lively tone after using it. It reminded me of how my skin looked when I was younger - pre acne phase. lol
I will be ordering when my sample is gone.
I will say the aroma may be off putting to some at first but I love it's earthy aroma, reminds me of mushroom and freshly cut wood which means the men can use it too!
Not too feminine and not too masculine.
I love the way it makes my skin feel and look! I have been waiting to try this new charcoal thing everyone has been talking about...its good stuff!

Too drying
Purchased

I wanted to love this but it was too drying. I used it once or twice a week or my deep cleanse and my face would be left feeling so tight. Even though it's not a foamy cleanser with sulfates and other chemicals, the activated charcoal didn't make my skin feel hydrated at all. I would have to go put my face oil on immediately because my face felt so tight. I want my face and sebum to be balanced not overdry.

Best facial cleanser ever
Purchased

I've always avoided powerful cleansers because they dry out my skin and make any acne/dry patches worse. I have combo-oily skin with the occasional dry patch. This cleanser is amazing. I love everything about it, from the smell to the effect it has on my skin. Seriously, but this, you won't regret it!

Best. Cleanser. Ever.
Purchased

I purchased this product after watching a BB video - and I am so so glad that I did. This is hands down the best cleanser I have ever used. I use it at night before bed - removes every trace of makeup - and a little goes a long way. Lather, wipe away with a warm, damp washcloth - and my skin is soft and glowing. Would absolutely recommend to people with fair skin - I'm fair skinned and sensitive - haven't had a breakout in weeks. Love it!

Lovely product
Purchased

I was skeptic at first because of the color. Before this I had been using a clarasonic face wash, but holy cow am I glad I switched!! I have always suffered from awful blackheads in my t-zone area, but this stuff REALLY washed it all out. My skin is glowing and noticeably clearer, and this stops irritation on my acne I already have and makes it almost disappear. Love!!!

Amazing
Purchased

This is definitely the best cleanser i've ever used. I'm only on day 2 using this and my skin feels softer and more refreshed than ever. I have really dry skin and this does not dry my skin out at all. The only problem I have with this is that the bottle doesn't work right. I have to twist it open a little bit for the pump to work, but that really doesn't bother me at all considering how amazing this is.
