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.

    Second time using it. It removes any makeup you didnt get off and it brightens your complexion naturally. Doesn't dry you out at all. Definitely notice I break out less. Love it!

      Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

      I've always had oily, acne prone skin. I first purchased this product several months ago and I refuse to use any other face wash now. Since I began using it, my skin looks so much better and has so much less acne now. Friends and family have told me time and time again how healthy and clear my face looks. Will buy again and again and if I ever hear of this being discontinued, I will make a stockpile big enough to last me years!

          Comments about Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser:

          Well I've been using this product for a month or so now and really not much improvement at all with my skin. I really thought I would like this especially since it got good reviews. I'm not impressed, I should have seen a lot better results with my acne by now if it was good working stuff :(

            I got this product as a free trial size when i purchased the soniclear tool. I initially had no interest in using it, i already had a regimen using Cerave and didn't want to change my routine. I have acne prone skin that is dry one day and oil the next. I was hesitant to try this product because i had doubts it wouldn't be gentle enough for every day use....i was WRONG! Started noticing i was breaking out in blackheads and remembered i had this product and decided to test it out. It is SO gentle, smells natural, and lathers nicely. My blackheads seem to be almost gone, not sure if it is a coincidence or if its actually the product but i do believe it is the product. Definitely buying the full size bottle and will continue use!

                I loved this product and the fact that it leaves my skin feeling super clean, however, I don't think it cleans deeply. I use it in conjunction with my Clarisonic Mia and I still feel like my pores aren't super clean. I may have to give it a few more weeks to see if it is just because my pores are suer dirty :( I really hope that is not the problem -_-
                Other than that, I love this product. :)

                  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.

                      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.
