This Exfoliating Cleanser That Doubles As a Clay Mask Has Sold Out 4 Times — but It's Back in Stock
Building an effective skincare routine should start with these steps: cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturize, and apply SPF. But having a product for each category can get quite pricey, especially if you choose ones from luxury brands. That's why people love Strange Bird's Inner Clarity Cleanser, a three-in-one product that acts as a face wash, exfoliating scrub, and clay mask.
The vegan and cruelty free formula is made with all clean ingredients, including the brand's signature G-Team trio, a combination goji berry, a fruit packed with minerals and amino acids that smooth, hydrate, and tone; ginseng, a collagen-boosting and anti-inflammatory root that calms redness and puffiness; and ginger, an antioxidant and antiseptic that protects skin from free radicals and banishes pimples. It also features kaolin clay that works as a drying agent to gently pull impurities from pores, along with sweet almond oil and jojoba oil that help to scrub off stubborn makeup.
Strange Bird founder Tina Chow Rudolf created the brand with the intention of helping women put their emotional wellness first. "The five or ten minutes it takes to clean my face and moisturize has always served as a meditation and celebration for me," she wrote on the brand's website. "In these moments, I can check in with myself, reflect on the day I had or the day ahead, and celebrate my unique beauty through self-attention."

That's why all Strange Bird products are supercharged with the power of flower and crystal essences and come with their own mantra to recite as you apply them. According to its website, this is "a modern form of energy medicine akin to homeopathy." The Inner Clarity Cleanser is supercharged with clear quartz and crab apple essence which are meant to help release negative energy. Its mantra is to let go of one thought or thing you no longer want in your life.
While doing this, scrub away dead skin by massaging the gritty textured formula onto damp skin if washing your face or dry skin if removing makeup, and then rinse. To reap its deeper, detoxifying benefits, apply a thin layer on your face and neck, leave it on for 10 minutes, and rinse.
Since its debut in 2019, the Inner Clarity Cleanser has sold out four times and become a customer favorite for its simplicity, quick results, and delicious scent.
"I have been a loyal fan since the launch," one reviewer wrote. "This is my all-time favorite cleanser. The scent is heavenly, the texture is both silky and lightly exfoliating, and it leaves my skin glowing and smooth. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin, but I use this daily without any issues. It's the only cleanser you'll ever want or need."
Another chimed in, "I got my cleanser just when I had a bulbous pimple on my chin and it swelled down in [a] matter of days. A fantastic product that smells great and feels therapeutic to use."
Whether you choose to use it as a quick solution for washing your face, or something much deeper and more spiritual, pick up a tube of the Strange Bird's Inner Clarity Cleanser before it sells out again.
