Give your skin a deep clean without compromising your moisture barrier! Our Activated Charcoal Cleanser is formulated to give your skin a deep clean while adding hydration. This detox is infused with Cucumber Water and Hibiscus Extract for hydration, unclogging those dirty pores, and helping to increase cell turnover. Fresh skin never felt so good!– Naked Flamingo
Looking for something that would provide a deep cleanse to my acne-ic skin without drying it out during the winter months, I ordered Naked Flamingo’s Charcoal Detox Cleanser. After about 2 weeks of nightly usage, I used up about half the container, which is a bit disappointing considering how long it took for this to pop up as available on the company’s website (which is chronically sold out due to the popularity of both products and their associated affordable prices). The cleanser itself is a thick, black liquid that runs quickly down the face – spreading across easily when rubbed. Washing it off is also quite easy. Overall, I definitely think this product did well in keeping my face clean and acne-free without causing any irritation or dryness.
Ingredient Pros and Cons
Ingredients: Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Activated Charcoal, Aloe Vera, Cucumber Water, Hibiscus Extract, Niacinamide, Disodium Lauroampho Diacetate, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Squalane, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Leuconostoc Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate.
- Activated Charcoal (absorbs impurities, exfoliator)
- Aloe Vera (calming)
- Cucumber Water (calming, hydrating)
- Hibiscus Extract (exfoliator, antioxidant, anti-aging)
- Niacinamide (addresses hyper-pigmentation)
- None really – Citric Acid isn’t really a big deal here
I really enjoyed this product – easy to use, effective in its results, and affordable – however, the fact that the product can be completely used up so quickly is quite disappointing, especially since I had to wait such a long time to order it. While I have no problem recommending this product to others, I may keep looking for another cleanser that can at least last an entire month of day-night usage.
