Charcoal Detox Cleanser by Michael Todd

I have combination skin and am prone towards getting acne and pimples which makes it difficult for me to get cleanser suitable for my skin needs. Oh and I have sensitive skin too so nothing too harsh!
My search for daily facial cleanser came to an end once I tried Charcoal Detox Cleanser by Michael Todd. This stuff is super awesome and works superb for oily or blemish prone skin without overly drying out the skin!

First of all I simply adore the packaging, it is vibrant purple color bottle in pump style which makes it super convenient to get product out. The full size 200ml bottle is great value for $23 price. This is charcoal color gel no doubt due to the presence of activated charcoal as ingredient. To use shake Shake well before each use. Wet face and hands with warm water. Apply cleanser onto hands and gently massage onto damp face in upward, circular motions. Rinse thoroughly.

It lathers very easily and gets rid of all impurities and makes skin fresh and clean. It is easy to remove makeup (besides waterproof mascara) and activated charcoal is very beneficial to remove excess oil and declogs pores to control acne and pimples. It is gentle for daily use, tea tree and aloe vera help soothe skin. The best thing about the product is that it does not leave my skin too dry and is great for morning or night routine after which I use my serums and moisturizer. Been using this product for 3 weeks and am really amazed as my skin has not had any breakouts! It has helped clear my skin of blemishes and it looks clear now! Absolutely love this stuff and would totally recommend to everyone men or women looking for gentle cleanser for oily/blemish prone skin.

I use this in variety of ways, with just hands if in hurry, for deep cleansing with my clarisonic brush or with turmeric konjac sponge for increased exfoliation. This cleanser works great with any product.
