Chirpy - the quick, easy, and EFFECTIVE cleanser

Mornings can be a Hectic (with a capital H) and you just need to have a streamlined routine. You need your freaking fabulous status intact as you step out into the day. And the Chirpy Charcoal Cleansing Gel is your “easy to use in the shower” cleansing phenom.

It has synergistic blend of anionic, non ionic and amphoteric ingredients. Erm...In English please Aaron??... This simply means it cleans and clears your skin without that dreaded over drying tight feeling.

We’re into bamboo charcoal big time, and if you haven’t tried it then you should! Bamboo charcoal has the ability to clean deeeeeeeep into your pores. It’s non toxic, has low irritation potential, and is incredibly gentle.

The list of Chirpy’s special talents is nothing to be sneezed at. There’s so much more to it than just the so-hot-right-now charcoal.

  • Bromelain-rich Pineapple gives you natural AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) for gentle exfoliation
  • Step aside green tea. Purifying White Tea packs in the anti-oxidants and anti-ageing goodness.
  • Activated Bamboo Charcoal absorbs grime, sebum, dirt, toxins and pollutants
  • Non-drying (no icky tight feeling here!)
  • Quick, easy and shower-friendly
  • It suits all skin types, especially very oily skin
  • It’s oil free except for a little spirit uplifting Tangerine essential oil
  • It’s BRILLIANT if you’re prone to breakouts or excessive oiliness
  • And YES, it is black. But it’s not scary Mary and washes off completely without no effort at all.

If you are wondering, yes Chirpy Charcoal is a cleanser option in the 3 Step Happy System :)

Water-based cleansers are OK too (actually, MORE than OK!)

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know we are in love with oil cleansing. So why did we create a water based cleanser?

  1. You kept asking for one :) And we NEVER like to disappoint you.
  2. Water based cleansers and oil based cleansers can be used together. A water based cleanser finishes off the job beautifully when really stubborn make up is first pre-treated with an oil cleanser.
  3. Water based cleansers work a bit differently to oil based cleansers which makes them suit some skin types better.

Gentle water based cleansers definitely have a place in the world. So make a space on that shelf of happiness in your bathroom, because Chirpy is a keeper.

Did you notice that lurvely white bottle? It’s 100% recycled!

Happy Skincare products in white bottles? Changes are afoot.

We’ve just switched all of our 100ml bottles over to white, and our 15ml sample bottles too. This is a REALLY exciting change. Not because of the colour, but what the colour represents.

Our new white bottles are made from 100% post-consumer-recycled PET plastic. Hooray!

The switch to recycled plastics is another step in our plan to minimise our footprint on this big ol’ Earth of ours. Hope you love this change just as much as we do x

Directions

Directions

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.

NEW!! Packaging Options

We've just brought in a brand new packaging option that we're super excited about - larger 250ml bottles! 

The idea behind these bottles is that they allow you to buy in bulk (and save 20% in the process), but also reduce the amount of packaging you're using.

The 250ml bottle option comes WITHOUT a pump - just a simple metal cap. In the future we're going to have pumps for sale individually but for now our idea is that you'll use your pump from your 100ml bottle :) 

Both our 100ml and 250ml white bottles are made from 100% post-consumer-recycled PET plastic, so whichever option you use, you're helping look after this beautiful earth of ours x

Chirpy charcoal cleanser

Bought this for my Tween, Teen and myself (mature skin) we all love it. No reactions on our sensitive skin, removed makeup and doesn’t leave skin feeling dry after cleansing. Will repurchase.

LOVING SO FAR - Perfect Cleanser for Blackhead Prone and Combination Skin

I have combination skin in the way that my underneath layers are dry and the surface layers are oily (particularly in my T zone). I love the consistency of the gel because I find that oil cleansers just don't do it for me. I was using the Cloud 9 Cleansing Balm which is great too (I now alternative) but the gel feels like it gets deeper into my pours to help with clearing blackheads away. The gel is light and smooth and doesn't go overly foamy with water - just forms as a lighter lather on the skin, tending to concentrate on dry areas. I use the Kuu Konjac Sponge to wipe away (the RED one) and follow with the Tickle Pink Perfecting Tonic (and moisturiser after).
I would highly recommend this for younger skin types (I'm early - mid 20s) - it's amazing.

Worth the change

I decided to take a leap of faith and changed all my skincare to happy skincare. This cleanser has been brilliant for me. I have had less breakouts and it doesn't dry my skin at all or make it more oily. I'd recommend it if you want an easy everyday cleanser that is free from chemicals.

Giving it a try....

My 21 year old loves this and as she is a student I am still buying her Happy products. She has skin that can get the odd spot, oily T zone, very pale sensitive skin but she uses this alternating with 3 Cheers. After reordering her 3rd lot I am giving it a try myself - will get back when I have tested it out too.

Amazing product!

This cleanser is wonderful for my combination skin. My skin feels clean and fresh after I use it without drying it out. I have been using it for over a year and have no plans to stop. Thank you Happy Skincare!!

Glowing skin

I’m never going back to anything else so please please keep making this amazing product.
My skin use to struggle with breakouts especially at that time of the month. Since I started to using the charcoal cleansing gel, my skin has improved out of sight!!! It feels softer, more hydrated and clean without the right feeling.

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.
