I've always heard of charcoal as a fabulous ingredient in skincare but have never really got a chance to try it out. When a grey coloured cleanser arrived at my doorstep, I was actually quite reluctant to give it a shot. It's funny how colour plays an important role when it comes to skincare. Unknowingly, we are quite used to seeing our cleansers creamy white so it was quite funny at first to slather on something greyish as a pick-me-up in the mornings.
Surprisingly enough, the colour has nothing to do with the brilliance of the product. Containing not many star ingredients besides Charcoal, it's a simple face cleanser for daily use. There is that obvious slight tingle on application but nothing much. You also work up a little foam whilst massaging it onto the skin but no obvious bubbles and Fairy liquid action happening there. Working strongly at leaving face refreshed and thoroughly cleansed, it's actually a match made in heaven for teenage, troublesome skin.
I can actually spot a considerable reduction in the number of breakouts and clogging on my face after using this regularly for a good few weeks. Alternate it with a rich cleanser at night or pair it with balm cleanser as a morning, double cleanse regime, For a fiver, it will surprise you with how amazing it is.
