I decided to try out the latest charcoal craze. No, I haven’t brushed my teeth with it (yet?) but I did try a facial mask today. Here’s what I have to say about it….
I want to start by saying that I’m not being paid to post about how amazing it is so yes, this is my honest opinion. (I’m bluntly honest all the time though, seriously). I received a Younique sample in the mail from a former classmate of mine who has started selling it. So why not try it?! It’s infused with bamboo charcoal which is said to lift impurities and dead skin. My favorite part was that I could WATCH it bubble on my face. It also has tea tree oil in it and I am a sucker for most anything tea tree. I dampened my skin a bit with a washcloth and then applied a light layer starting on my T zone and spread it outwards. I left it on for about 5 minutes and it started to tighten… also another thing I love in a good face mask.
The real deal breaker is how you look/feel after it’s washed off. I have larger pores on my nose and they looked significantly smaller. My face just felt tip-top. I didn’t notice an immediate softness which could be because I have neglected, winter-dry skin right now but as the night went on I could feel a smoothness difference without feeling oily. This mask gets a thumbs up from me!
It was a fun, positive experience. You can tell by how I’m straight up loving life it in the picture, am I right?
