  • 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.

    No more oil slick

    So blown away by this cleanser. I wash with it in the morning under the shower & my sensitive, combination skin loves it. Normally by lunch my face would be greasy and my makeup sliding off my face but now it stays matte. I use the godmother serum no.2 & perfectly happy cream after cleansing & its the perfect base for day. Skin is still hydrated & comfortable. Great for the 2nd cleanse at night after the cleansing oil or balm too. My secret weapon is using the red clay konjac sponge to gently exfoliate & remove cleanser for a perfect cleanse.

    Great cleanser

    This cleanser always makes my face feel really clean and it works well to remove residual makeup. I often use it in conjunction with the cloud 9 cleanser if I need a deep cleanse. It doesn’t make my skin feel dry or tight, or irritate my sensitive skin.


    A very gentle cleanser. I feel safe using it without having to worry about the effects of harsh chemicals on my skin as there is none. Because it's so gentle, I feel it's more suitable for me to use it as a face wash in the morning. It doesn't clean off sun screen, make up, or the 3-cheeers cleasing oil I used to remove my makeup; but perhaps this cleanser is not meant for those purposes. I still feel it is a great product on its own - 5 stars still for all the natural and organic ingredients used and for all that Happy stand for:)

    Fabulous Cleansing Gel

    Love the ease of using this cleansing gel every morning in the shower. Skin feels clean and fresh after use. I'm in my 50s and find it great for me

    On the fence between the Oil and the Gel?

    I'm 36yrs old and have combo skin, tried the oils and while they're lovely, they felt a little heavy and sometimes irritated my nose piercing :(

    The Charcoal Gel is perfect though, doesn't strip your face, but cleanses off the day and doesn't leave your face feeling tight afterwards.

    If you're not sure about the oil vs gel, and you're my age or younger? I'd go with the gel :)

    But like all the Happy Products, give em a try for yourself, just on the scents alone you won't be disappointed!

  • 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.
