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, while salt in the formula banishes blemish-causing bacteria. Together, these two put pollutants in their rightful place: —down the drain.

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.

Sodium Chloride (Sea Salt), Sodium Chloride (Mineral Salt), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Nut Powder, Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder

Great for pores
SampledPurchased

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.

not sure at first...
Sampled

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 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.

Love 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.

too salty!
Sampled

Wish this product had more of soot and less salt. No matter how hard you try, the salt gets into your mouth and is so horrible! I couldn't stand it. But if you can stand it, it was great that you can mix as much or little as you like into your favorite moisturizer to customize your exfoliation needs.

Too rough!
Sampled

This was far too rough on my skin. Although your skin does feel refreshed. My dermo told me before to not use this large of exfoliant because sometimes they can cause little cuts in your face.

I totally recommend it as a booster, solo it's bit too much, it's incredibly salty and dried out my skin. but when combined with one of my favorite non-exfoliating cleansers i find it to be very beneficial.
