Charcoal gently washes away impurities without harsh surfactants—helping absorb excess oil to keep skin smooth, balanced and clear. It also helps neutralize odor and keep you fresh. Skin detox, delivered.
I've been using charcoal products for some time now. I am obsessed with charcoal deodorant, charcoal face mask and a charcoal cleansing bar.
My 3 Charcoal Essentials:
1. Beautycounter No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask (30 ml / 1 fl oz): Our nutrient-rich blend, with kaolin clay, activated charcoal and salicylic acid, helps draw out impurities, minimize the appearance of pores and absorb excess oil.
2. Beautycounter Charcoal Cleansing Bar (57 g / net wt 2 oz): Ideal for oily or blemish-prone skin, this gentle, detoxifying daily cleansing bar contains purifying binchotan charcoal, antioxidant green tea and hydrating coconut oil.
This is the perfect gift for a teen or the man in your life! #winning
3. Schmidt's Charcoal and Magnesium Deodorant: Scent reminiscent of freshly fallen rain: vaporous, mild, and wispy and enriched with mineral-derived ingredients: Magnesium and Sodium Bicarbonate. Free of aluminum, propylene glycol, parabens & phthalates; no artificial fragrance with a non-greasy, non-sticky feel.
It is Certified Vegan and Cruelty-free!
How to Use Charcoal Essentials:
No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask: Apply an even layer to clean skin. Let it dry for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use 2-3 times per week. Be sure to moisturize after!P.S. It can also be used as a spot treatment.
Charcoal Cleansing Bar: Work into a lather with warm water, gently massage onto face and body, and rinse thoroughly. Make sure to lather with lotion or coconut oil after.
Charcoal and Magnesium Deodorant: It is easily absorbed, so application requires only a small amount. Use twice daily!
I am planning on adding a 4th essential to my routine-Schmidt's Activated Charcoal Toothpaste but I need to get the hubs on board first. I have been so eager to try try this!
If I could get him on board for a plant based diet, I am sure that I can convert him to this toothpaste!!
I'll keep you posted!
