When you have acne, you are always looking for the next best thing. Even if you have a product that's already working, you still want to try other products to either get faster results, or save more money. And so is my story. When I got the notice that I was going to review Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser, I was very excited because the name Micheal Todd Beauty is synonymous to #clearskin. Let's see if the product met all my expectations!
How Micheal Todd describes the Product
Ideal for oily and blemish prone skin types.

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
Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser has a gel-like consistency, but it does not feel sticky. You don't need a lot to get great results. It does not lather like a regular soap bar, but it cleanses the face thoroughly. The first thing that I noticed is Aloe Vera being the first ingredient on the list. That probably explains why my skin felt moisturized and refreshed every time I used the product. The product cleans my face very well. I have seen a significant change on my nose. My blackheads are not as noticeable as they used to be. And my face looks slightly smoother after using the product for only one week.
The product came nicely packaged. It comes in a 6.7 oz purple pump bottle. The pump dispenses the right amount of gel for one wash, but I try not to use a full pump because the scent lingers and I don't like the smell very much. If you've used products made with charcoal before, you totally understand what I mean.
