The first thing we noticed...these cleansers are naturally black!

As I poured out a dime size on the palm of my hand to first try out the Destiny Boutique Charcoal Facial Detox Cleanser, I noticed that the substance on my hand was midnight black! Normally, I would associate this color with dirt, not cleanliness...but the minty fresh scent persuaded me to go for it and rub it all over my face. Wow! How refreshing it truly was! The peppermint refreshes your mind and skin, adding a bit of a tingle that makes you feel really clean, and the tiny bits of charcoal worked to exfoliate dull, dead skin cells as I cleansed. I nominate this product as the new "Texas Tea" or "Black Gold" - it's definitely much better for the planet and your skin! Afterall, most of the cleansers on the store shelves are made with petro products, a.k.a. oil just like the kind your car uses.

Charcoal? Why Charcoal?

"Charcoal - not the one from your BBQ grill, but the specially processed activated kind - can adsorb nasty organics and environmental junk better than any other known substance rendering them ineffective and harmless.

Charcoal can do these various things because of its ability to attract other substances to its surface and hold them there by adsorption. One teaspoon of activated charcoal has a surface area of more than a football field.

Charcoal has proven track record for its detoxifying power. Ancient physicians including Hippocrates recommended the use of charcoal for medicinal purposes. North American Indians used it for skin infections. In Asia it has been used for centuries to whiten the skin. It is also legendarily used to unclog pores, remove impurities and dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, resulting supple, delicate and smooth skin."

Great for men or women!

I've subjected my husband to many products in our time, but this is one product that I simply sat in the shower and his curiosity got the best of him. Even though our review has been completed, he refuses to part with this cleanser. Seriously. For a man to love a facial THAT says something about how great this product is.

Bonus: Free Wildflowers...

Each product label is made of a specialty paper which contains wildflower seeds - just plant and water your label. Soon you will be rewarded with not only very soft, supple skin, but also a beautiful windowsill garden to gaze upon!
