To take your exfoliation full-body, try clariSEA Mud Scrub.


Birchbox Breakdown

Blackheads beware: This unassuming bottle holds the key to smoother, brighter skin—in the form of scorched bamboo. Made from the eco-friendly plant, this special soot is known for absorbing impurities and clearing pores in a single wash. In short, it puts pollutants in their rightful place—down the drain.

How it Works

This scrub is 100% natural, and its special sauce has two parts: First, activated bamboo charcoal absorbs excess dirt and oil, instantly detoxing skin. Then, salt crystals—carted in from the Pacific Ocean and Himalayas—exfoliate, attacking blemish-causing bacteria for fewer breakouts.

How to Use

Open the bottle and pour a quarter-sized amount into your palm. Mix in a splash of water, rub hands together, and gently massage onto face. Rinse thoroughly (it may take a minute or two). You may see trace amounts of charcoal left on skin, which you can wipe away with a cloth or paper towel. You can also add it to your favorite cleanser for an extra blackhead-clearing kick.

Sea Salt (Pacific Ocean), Mineral Salt (Himalayan Pink), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Nut Powder, Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder, Silt (Dry Dead Sea Mud).

Wonderful scrub

This scrub is great! If you just add water, it feels kind of odd on the skin. If you use it with a face wash, it feels just like a scrubby wash. Either way, it has the exfoliating and softening benefits of sea salt along with the detoxifying benefits of charcoal. I highly recommend this scrub.

You gotta try this!

I wasn't sure about this due to the wishy washy reviews but I know first hand how amazing charcoal is one on your face. Keep in mind this is salt based so in your mouth or eye is not good. I used it by itself on my face after cleansing and I loved it. My face felt amazing. Amazing! I did not have an issue washing this off my face as some have mentioned. This is great to remove old dead stuff and keeping your skin bright. Amazing!!!

I am so in love with this product. I mix it with my regular cleanser and it acts as an exfoliator. My face feels soo smooth and oil free. I can also see it looking brighter. The sea salt can be rough so try to be gentle and massage in a circular motion for atleast a minute. I try to focus on my nose to get rid of blackheads.

This product is super scratchy so its good for getting alot of dead skin off, but you MUST rub it in very gently because you can easily scratch up your face. After washing, the charcoal color stays behind so you have to follow up with another cleanser or continue to wash it away.

Works best when mixed with your facial cleanser

This is a nice, simple exfoliant. I could tell when using it that it doesn't have any harsh additives, and my skin felt great after using it. One caveat - some of the sea salt pieces are large, and didn't seem to contribute much to the effectiveness of the product. I mixed it with my usual cleanser, as the package suggested, and then it worked wonderfully.
