    Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser:

    In college, I battled with severe acne and could never figure out what was causing it. I randomly got really sensitive skin out of nowhere and none of my face washes were helping. I saw a youtuber talk about Michael Todd and I was desperate, so I tried it. Turns out that my extremely sensitive skin worked wonders with this product. My skin cleared up dramatically within a month. This cleanser even helped clear my acne scars! I have been using it for years now & I refuse to use anything else. The fact that it has no harsh ingredients really helps improve your skin. Amazing product!

          I love this product, I have tried so many pore creams/minimizer etc and nothing seemed to work. I bought the Micheal Todd Face brush and this product came with it, I saw a change within the second day I used it. Totally will buy again.

              Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser:

              I purchased this based on all the positive reviews but I was not impressed. This cleanser didn't seem to do much of anything for my skin. It didn't even give me the nice 'clean' feeling that I've come to expect from any cleanser. For reference, I have combination/oily skin - I didn't have any negative reactions to it, but it didn't do anything positive for me either. It does seem to be fine for use with all skin types, but I have many other cleansers I like better, and this one is more expensive than all of those when you consider the price per ounce. For me, this was a waste of money.

              Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser:

              I've struggled with acne pretty much my entire life. It improved greatly after I had my kids, so much so that my skin was smooth for a few years but for the last several months it returned with a vengeance. Not sure if this was a hormonal issue or not but I needed to try something different ASAP. After trying things that had worked in the past nothing seemed to make it better. I heard about Michael Todd from a youtuber and decided to give the acne/oily kit a try. I have been using it pretty religiously for several months now and have seen a dramatic improvement in my skin. I'm reviewing this product on it's own as I feel this is the "golden ticket" item. My skin immediately feels cleaner and I'm truly impressed with how well it's been working on my skin. This in conjunction with the Bluegreen Algae toner are amazing. The toner smells super clean. These two products do tend to dry my oily skin out but I try to use moisturizer after letting the toner sink in. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has acne problems with oily skin BUT keep in mind it may not work right away. I noticed improvements well over 2 months of regular use. So hang in there, it will get better!

                Comments about Michael Todd Beauty Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser:

                I first bought this in a trial pack, and I used it together with my Soniclear cleansing brush. I have rosacea and I was thoroughly pleased that it helped control the flare after a week. After 2 weeks all associated acne was gone, it's like they were wiped away! After a month of use I felt no bumps under the skin. My face was clear, the redness was reduced and on some days it even helped with the flares. I live in a hot, humid tropical climate country so I don't have the weather on my side most of the time. It helped reduce the sebum production, and it a tremendous help. A little goes a long way, and since it removes makeup too, it really is a bang on your bucks.

                After the trial pack I bought a full size bottle and have since found out that MT has reduced its content when it introduced the new packaging. Due to the country currency state, I haven't repeated order. So sad. I still haven't found a replacement for this. I LOVE THIS CLEANSER. God willing, I'll buy you again in future.

                  This is one of my top 2 favorite cleansers of all time! The other one is Michael Todd's honey and oat cleaner :)) I just can't say enough great things about these cleansers. It removes all of my make-up without striping my skin. Also, I LOVE the ingredients! The quality shows, as my skin has never been happier.

                    Just Wow!!! I am a beauty girl, always have been and always will be! I do the full face, contour etc.. and I have never used a cleanser like this!! I've tried everything every cleanser etc!!! I have acne/sensitive skin and some hormonal breakouts and I have to say that the first couple of weeks I used it with the Soniclear, my skin purged quite a bit, especially the first week. Then out of the blue my skin started to look amazing and way more clear! If you are experiencing the same thing, just stick with it, it will clear up!

                    I find that either get my face wet or use just a little pump on my fingertips and very fast- lightly rub my fingers back and forth creates a nice lather. I also use a small amount on my Soniclear making sure my face is wet first to create a lather. If you don't have enough water, it won't lather as much.

                    I can't thank you for this product! Probably why I bought 4 of them!! :)
