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

Apply a small amount to damp hands and gently massage into skin.

Rinse thoroughly with water (pay particular attention to your hairline) and pat dry with a soft towel.

It works great in the shower too!

Follow with your toner/tonic and moisturiser. Use once or twice daily.

Unlike many online brands, we believe in complete transparency so any ingredients list you find on our website is 100% complete. No secrets here!

We promise that you will not find ANY these shady characters in a Happy Skincare product:

  • mineral oils
  • parabens
  • petro-chemicals
  • sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS)
  • sodium laureth sulphate (SLES)
  • sulphates
  • synthetic fragrances
  • animal derivatives
  • ingredients tested on animals
  • artificial colours
  • aluminium salts
  • bleaches e.g. benzoyl peroxide
  • harsh detergents
  • triethanolamine (TEA)
  • ... and the list goes on!

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

    I find this cleanser the best I’ve ever used to gently tease up the dead skin on my face. I use it in the shower every couple of days. Two pumps, rub it all over my face, and then wash it off. After that I go over my face again with my fingers under the water and the dead skin comes away without the need for scrubbing or force. It even made me aware of the dead skin around my jawline I wasn’t even aware built up there! It’s wonderful stuff that doesn’t dry out my skin either.

    Decent product but a bad result :(

    I decided to try this out to help with some hormonal acne I was experiencing - unfortunately, this was a big mistake. The product was nice but I stupidly did not patch-test it before using, and also used it in combination with the Charcoal Konjac sponge (which I also had not used before). The result was a very bad reaction - it seems the charcoal in these products totally stripped my skin barrier and has led to a raised rash of tiny little bumps all over my cheeks and neck, eek! I only used it for 3 days before I stopped, but the rash is still here 5 days later and I think it'll take a while to repair. In fairness to the Happy team, I should have known better - I've had eczema all my life and dived into using charcoal-based products without researching them properly. And the cleanser itself was decent enough to use, though I wasn't a fan of the smell. So in short, this is probably great if you have oily skin (it had a good effect on my oily T-zone) but be VERY CAREFUL if you have even the slightest sensitivity in your skin.
