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).

This works wonders when you mix it with regular face wash. It exfoliates and really leaves your skin feeling super soft and clean

Great product that leaves your face feeling healthy and smooth!
Sampled

I absolutely love this product and have had amazing results. Before use, I had dry, beaten up winter skin. Now, having used this once a week for the last several weeks, my face feels fresh, smooth and healthy. The mild exfoliant isn't harsh. Instead, I feel like I'm putting a little touch of nature on my face with natural sea salts and minerals. Highly recommend!

Great, natural exfoliator
Sampled

I always see and feel a difference after using this with my nightly face wash.

It has a few, natural ingredients, which I care about when using products on my face.

You'll definitely need a good moisturizer or oil after use as it is a bit rough, but that's the point of a good exfoliator.

A tad harsh

Does a good job of scrubbing but did feel a little raw after using. Definitely need a good moisturizer if you use this on a regular basis

I don't know why I waited so long to try this sample. It's amazing. I used only a teaspoon and water and my skin is facial smooth!

A little difficult to use
Sampled

A great exfoliate to add to my regular cleanser or just use on its own. It's a little abrasive at first so leaving it mixed in with water on your skin for 1 minute helps dissolve the salt crystals. Feels incredibly natural due to the dead see salt. Didn't see a huge change in pores but made my skin feel overall smoother. Sample dispenser was a little too awkward and messy for me so I wonder if the regular bottle is easier to use.

I use this with my charcoal face wash, for increased exfoliation. The charcoal draws impurities out while the salt gets into the pores and gently exfoliates the skin. You only need to use a little bit at a time though, so this will last forever.

Amazing Product...
SampledPurchased

I first got the clariSEA Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant as a sample in my monthly Birchbox. After that, I had to buy the full-sized product. Not only does this product exfoliate, but the charcoal really does do wonders for your pores! I usually use this product with my normal face wash, and it's amazing.
