This is a great product to mix into your cleanser or face serum. The charcoal is really great for pores. After I used it for a week or so, my face was much clearer and my pores did not look as large. I noticed a difference when I stopped using it for awhile. It does contain sea salt so use two or three times a week because too much may dry out the skin depending on the skin type. But overall I love this product.
This was perfect my face felt so smooth after using and it didn't feel too rough at all. I love that you apply to your own cleanser.
I love this exfoliant!
I love all things natural and charcoal-based face products are among my favorites. I like how natural this product is and the way my skin feels after using it.
This is the first dry exfoliant product I've tried & I actually like that I can add to any cleanser or use with water. I also like that it contains the charcoal for detoxing impurities. In fact, it seemed to work! (Go figure, a product that does what it says lol!) I will use up the rest of the sample and re-evaluate. So far, so good.
Leaves skin feeling fresh
I was not expecting this product to be a powder but it comes in a nice shaker which makes it very easy to add to other face washes. I can be a little more abrasive than I would like but since it is a powder you can just adjust the amount you use. I definitely feel and see a difference in my skin after use it leave my skin feeling tight as well as smooth. I plan on purchasing this again.
not sure at first...
But now I'm really liking it. I use this by adding it to my favorite cleanser. It really feels like I'm getting the grime off of my face. Too strong for me to use daily (and I have pretty durable/forgiving skin). If you leave it on too long you can def feel the salt-sting. I feel like it is clearing the blackheads around my nose (the only place I get them) and that it is detoxing my skin. The first few times I used it I had a few breakouts but for me that lets me know its clearing out the junk! The sample size is GREAT! I'm still using it. The full bottle will last a long time.
I love charcoal cleansers and this one is really great. My face felt really clean and I was very pleased with having a large sample size. Great job with this one, Birchbox!
I love love love this stuff. it works amazingly and really does the job. I am going on vaca soon and this is perfect for it .
I really like that you can mix this with your own face wash. Used alone it is a bit harsh and kind of burns, and it's really salty! But I like using just a small amount with my face wash, works great!
Not Crazy About It
I got this as a sample from another subscription service, and it's part of my Project Pan right now. I am really not crazy about having two of these to finish. I have sensitive skin, so the salty graininess is a bit much for my skin. It's good for a once a week exfoliator, but it's not something I would use everyday.
