Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser

Ask a Question
A luxurious gel-textured cleanser that gently melts away makeup, dissolves impurities and completely washes away residue without drying out or stripping away at the skin's natural moisture balance. Activated charcoal acts like a magnet and penetrates deeply into pores to gently draw out impurities, resulting in a refreshing sensation and clean, smooth, supple skin.

Powerful antioxidants and soothing tea tree oil provide effective anti-aging and blemish healing properties, including the treatment of acne, rosacea and eczema. Removes even the most stubborn makeup. Unclogs pores and eliminates impurities. Gentle exfoliation promotes increased cell turnover. Sulfate free "no tears" formula does not irritate eyes.


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.

    Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

    I usually don't splurge on face wash, but decided to give it a chance and try this product after eyeing it for about a year. After a couple of weeks of use, there was no change, so I returned the product. I wasn't expecting a mirace, but I was expecting to see a difference.

      Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

      I use this with the brush from Michael Todd and it has improved my skin more than Proactive or any other treatment and I've tried them all trust me. I might have a pimple once in a while but that probably means I didnt take the couple min to clean my face. I love the fact that it is helping my acne without drying my face out.

        I will never use anything again. This helped clear up my acne and it leaves no residue. Love the product. It does smell like charcoal, but it doesn't really make a difference in how much I love it.

        Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

        I haven't been using it for long and so far I have been breaking out. I tend to push through these stages since it is a deep pore cleanser and could be an initial side effect that could clear up in time. I've been trying to use it with different products to see what it works best with so I can get the best results. I've heard nothing but great things about this brand but from the reviews, it's a hit or miss with most people.

        Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

        The video is amateur and silly. I bought this face wash because of all the best reviews. Been using it for two weeks. There's still makeup on my toner cotton ball every time after cleansing, even if I wipe of makeup with a wet rag first. I can also still squeeze out a ton of oils and blackheads after cleansing. I haven't noticed a divergence in helping with oily skin. My face is still acne laden. It does smell nice and soften skin, but in my opinion it's a little too soft. It feels like I can't rinse it all out. Probably because aloe is the #1 ingredient. Planning on returning. Continuing the search for the best face wash. Sigh.

                      A:

                      The Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser has minimal lather. Michael Todd products don't use sodium laurel sulfates that can be harmful and harsh to skin (these usually give foaming and "suds"ing action). The Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser is formulated with a natural coconut-derived cleansing agent and charcoal to detoxify the pores and to eliminate dirt and debris.
