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 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.

    I use almost everyday. This soap is amazing, my nose pores got so small that I couldn't believe it. It doesn't dry me skin just perfect.

            I've only been using this a couple of weeks but I love it!! It smells great and my skin feels so clean after I use this. I would say it is worth the price and it's great you get such a large bottle of product. Definitely recommend this to anyone with oily/combination skin.

                Had rave reviews but did not work for me. Does not smell good, and dried out my very sensitive face. Also did not help my acne at all, and made me break out.

                        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.
