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).

first time I've used an exfoliator
Purchased

This product burns a little when applying. I have oily (in some areas) skin and also flakey skin. I can't always wash with soap because it will dry me out. At the same time I need something to refresh my skin especially around my cheek bones/nose. This product seems to help brighten and tighten my skin. I do wish the consistency were in larger grains to actually exfoliate better but overall this works well.

Not as awesome as I thought it would be...
Purchased

I love the ingredients but I wish there was more actual charcoal in it. charcoal is the last ingredient and when you shake some out on your hand, it's a very light grey color. I made a mask with this product using a little bit of mashed banana then scrubbed it off using a damp cloth. My skin did feel cleaner.

This worked really well to even out my skin tone. Have tried many similar products without such great results.

Really fantastic
Purchased

I love this scrub. It's easy to use, though must be gently applied as it is abrasive, and extremely purifying. My skin looks bright, and it warded off an impending breakout!! I woke up with clear skin, less congested skin the first morning after use....swoooon! ;)

Smooth/brighter skin
Sampled

I enjoyed using this product with the thought that the charcoal was riding my face of toxicities. It did cause a burning feeling upon application and scrub but it did the job with exfoliation. I found it a little difficult to use but ended up mixed with some coconut oil to use, which felt amazing afterwards.

Great Exfoliant
Purchased

The best thing about this exfoliant is that you mix it with your regular cleaner so it doesn't disrupt your regular regimen. You can customize how much you add if you want a light exfoliant one day or something more intense the next.

I was so disappointed when I got my box because this sample was came open during shipping and was all over everything, and I was really looking forward to trying it. I was able to use the tissue paper to dump it all (well most of it) back in the container and I'm so glad I did! I mix this with my normal face wash and I love it. It is extremely coarse though so probably not good for sensitive skin. I haven't seen a huge difference in black heads like I had hoped, but it definitely exfoliates and brightens my skin!

so good.
Sampled

I was so impressed with this sample. Not only is it huge, but its incredibly effective. I combine this with my typical moisturiser to soften it a bit, because I have pretty sensitive skin and found it a bit harsh just on my skin alone. However, after rinsing, my skin is very soft and has visibility improved clarity. If this sample ever runs out I will definitely be reordering.
