Premium Prickly

We’ve infused our Clay Cleanser with cactus extract for an extra soothing sensation for men.

Why Use Cleanser?

Men tend to have oilier skin and larger pores than women. It’s important to absorb unwanted oils and dirt that might clog pores and cause pesky breakouts. This cleanser will deep-clean your skin, clear away debris and remove excess oil like a champ.

Your Routine

Our Purifying Clay Cleanser can be used to kick-off and end every day. Use the cleanser before applying Daily SPF + Moisturizer in the morning and right before applying our 3-in-1 Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizer at night.

How To Use

Apply a nickel-size amount to wet hands, work into a foamy lather, apply to face for about 30 seconds, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Smile and wave to the clean man in the mirror (optional). Bonus tip: Save some time by keeping your cleanser in the shower.

Made Responsibly

All of our products are paraben-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free and made 100% cruelty-free. Key ingredients include cactus extract, three types of clay (Kaolin, Bentonite, and Morraccan Lava Clay) and centella asiatica, a plant-derived antioxidant.

Why Cacti?

Smart Care Tip #111

Washing and cleansing your face right before you shave clears your pores and allows your razor to cut closer to the root—making for a clean, close shave with less irritation.

Feels great, works great.

I have never really used facial products before but I enjoy using this cleanser. It does not dry out my skin and leaves me feelings clean throughout the day. Look good, feel good, and this definitely helps.

I've tried a lot of skin products but this one is by far my favorite so far. Can't wait to try more of your line :)

It doesn’t dry out my skin too bad, and my skin is usually more oily. This helps out with my oily skin, and it feels good on your skin afterwards! I’m 19, and the area I’m in is usually drier rather than humid.

Incredibly smooth feel

I have normal skin in my 30’s. This cleanser smells light and clean, and my face feels fresh and so soft after using it!

Very happy with the product

The clay face wash is thorough yet gentle on the face. I live/work in NYC so my skin is always dealing with dirty air, but this product leaves my face feeling clean and fresh, while avoiding drying out my skin


Great Results!

I am a fan of clay products because I have naturally oily skin (oil production increases as the day progresses). This product has two clay ingredients I have used previously (Kaolin and Bentonite), as well as Morrocan Lava Clay, which I am unfamiliar with. The cleanser works best by placing a nickel-size amount in wet hands and applying to face. I have had good results with this product, and I prefer it over charcoal products I have used.

Great product, alternative to scrubs

I bought this clay cleanser to replace another scrub brand that started making my skin dry in the winter. Cardon is gentle yet effective in removing oils and keeping my facial skin clean. I use it every day now at night. Highly recommend as an alternative to scrubs that can be rough on the skin.
