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, while salt in the formula banishes blemish-causing bacteria. Together, these two put pollutants in their rightful place: down the drain.
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.5
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.4
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.5
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.4
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.5
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.4
Skin feels really smooth after application. It's also a gentle scrub unlike some others I've tried. I wish the product didn't need to be added to your own cleanser and was already a scrub/cleanser combo. It would be easier to user in the shower.4
I can't say enough about this product. I absolutely LOVE it! After my sample was out, I tried to buy it here at Birchbox, but they'd discontinued it. The company still promotes and sells it on its website, so I'm guessing that BB discontinued selling it. Too bad for them, because over the past 9 months, I've purchased two full-size from another retailer.
I don't actually follow the instructions, and instead just shake some into my hand. Sometimes too much, sometimes not enough. Sometimes with cleanser in my hand, sometimes just in my hand to put over my cleanser. I use it every single day. I've read a few times that exfoliating every day actually keeps our skin looking younger. I'd like to think so, and I like the simple, non-comedogenic ingredients that give me great results. Sure, sometimes I get it in my mouth (tastes like salt, not poison!) or sometimes it stings (you know, if your cat scratches you or something like that), but I don't mind the salt taste, and I kind of like the sting.
I have really flaky skin around my nose and this works great to gently remove that dead skin and make my skin soft and supple. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's a powder, sometimes it's hard to get the right consistency (I usually end up adding a little too much water)4
I've been using this stuff regularly & my skin looks amazing! I mix it with my favorite face cleanser.5
