The power of charcoal is all the latest rage in the beauty world these days, and of course I had to give in and test out a few of these fun new products! There are numerous products containing charcoal available today, there are beauty masks, pore strips and facial scrubs. But out of all these products (and after having a ton of fun testing them out with my roomies!) the best product, in my opinion, is the Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar.
The main reason that this product is the one to purchase is because this one bar is a facial scrub, pore strip and beauty mask all in one. It contains minerals that give the bar a graininess and helps buff away dead skin and other impurities and has an uplifting peppermint scent which is great for any shower experience. And most importantly it draws out excess oil that leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh, while others can leave your face feeling tight. It is perfect for those with acne prone skin and is a safe and cheap alternative to other expensive products.
This beauty bar is insanely simple to use, all you have to do is bring the bar to a light lather and scrub gently over your skin in the shower. Rinse well and enjoy fabulously soft and rejuvenated skin. One quick tip about this product: do not use more than 3 or 4 times a week. While this product is great for stripping your face of excess oil, you do not want to overuse this product and leave your skin without the oils it needs to be healthy. This is definitely a product that I will be re-purchasing and keeping in my shower for a while!
This product retails for about $7 at Ulta Beauty or your local drug store.
