Full Description

Sometimes you just need to get sh#% done so the morning routine needs to be quick and snappy. When you are on the fly you need products that can keep up to speed but also they need to keep taking care of your skin and maintain your freaking fabulous status.

It has some pretty cool sciency stuff going on like having a synergistic blend of anionic, non ionic and amphoteric ingredients in so that this black beauty cleans and clears without stripping or drying out your skin. It is also *very* lightly scented with the scent of happiness (Tangerine essential oil), so it is fantastic for sensitive skin.

Add some bromelain-rich pineapple and activated charcoal and you have one cool cleanser that your pores will love. It suits all skin types, it’s oil free, and it’s BRILLIANT if you’re prone to breakouts.

Seeing a jet black cleanser for the first time is a little weird but Chirpy Charcoal is here to be your Fonzie. It is a super cool, no fuss, gentle cleanser that just knows how to treat you right.



Apply a small amount to moist hands and gently massage into skin. Rinse thoroughly with water (pay particular attention to your hairline) and pat dry with a soft towel. Follow with your toner/tonic and moisturiser. Works great in the shower too! Use once or twice daily.

Love it just wish it was available in a bigger bottle.

I love this cleanser. I use to use the balm but unfortunately my skin broke out from it. Not this one, its extremely light and doesn't dry the skin out or leave it feeling oily. The only problem i have is the size of the bottle. I would love it if you could get it in a larger size. Please guys 😁

Interesting product

It's not like any cleanser I've used. Doesn't produce much foam. But it definitely doesn't leave my skin dry after cleansing.

I love it

As someone with sensitive skin, I am always on the lookout for kinder products. This seems so much kinder on my skin than others. My breakouts and blackheads have improved in a number of weeks! Will get again

Love this cleanser

I've almost finished my first bottle of the Chirpy Charcoal Cleanser and have really been enjoying it!
The skin feels clean but not stripped after using this cleanser. My skin have improved over the last 2 months since introducing Happy Skincare into my routine.
I just recieved my order which included another two bottles of this cleanser.

My friend was recommending a cleanser from another brand. I never really looked at the ingredients list but when I compared the two ingredient lists, I was even more impressed. So much good stuff in this little black fella!

Difficult to use

The gel keeps sliding off my damp hands if I forget to dry them first hence some wastage. On my damp face, it slides around making it difficult to cleanse properly. Doesn't fully cleanse as there is still some dirt on my cotton wool after applying toner.

Hi Ssu, we are sorry you have experienced a challenge with our Chirpy Charcoal Cleansing Gel slipping around on your damp face and hands. We have found cupping your hand will keep the cleanser in place till you can get it onto your skin. Sometimes drying the skin a little before applying the cleanser may help it 'stick' so you can get a good cleansing action. Whilst it is a great cleanser to wash off in the shower sometimes using a Konjac sponge or a soft cloth helps remove the cleanser and any dirt or debris. Tonics/ toners on a cotton pad are great way to double cleanse and to make sure you get every inch as clean as possible and ready to receive the next product.
A refreshing change..

I recently purchased a sample to try as my current cleansing product was not doing what it used to. I was sceptical at first and was afraid of a break out - I have incredibly sensitive skin that keeps changing as I age and nothing seems to be working! But I was pleasantly surprised. There was no tightness after I washed my face and neck with it, and my skin felt clean and fresh. And no breakouts!!!

I've been using this product for a week or so and have noticed definite changes for the better in my skin. I had an eyebrow wax today and even the beautician said that my skin was looking fabulous and fresh. I mentioned what I had changed over to and she said it was definitely working. I am converted. I want to teach my daughter good habits and this is one I have involved her in since I received my first order (which won't be my last) - not that my daughter uses the product but she notices everything and asks lots of questions. Thank you for creating these fabulous products. I love finding a product that isn't full of chemicals, that is Australian and actually works! Keep up the great work :)

Chirpy cleansing gel

I have always struggled with dry sensitive skin. Since using this product my skin has never felt as healthy as it does today. I will definitely be a forever customer.

Super easy & super effective

I love this cleanser! It makes my skin feel lovely & clean but does not dry it out. The pump also makes it so easy & quick to use. Perfect for my routine.

Great for Teenage Skin

Used with Tickled Pink Perfecting Tonic and Perfectly Happy Light Anti-Oxidant Cream for teenage skin. 3 Step Happy System is a dream!

Love it

I will never go back to anything else because this cleanser is purely incredible. Must have in your routine for oily skin!!
