For trapping toxins
Activated charcoal is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores. The porous surface of activated charcoal has a negative electric charge that causes positive charged toxins and gas to bond with it.
That’s what makes it a magic ingredient for those who suffer from acne or clogged pores and many more skin problems…

The facewash doesnt lather at all rather it emulsifies as I rub it my skin and gets rather creamy in texture, leaves my skin well cleansed without stripping it, it has pecks of charcoal which kinda work as a very gentle exfoliater while clearing the impurities which I really appreciate. I use the face wash every morning and after massaging it in my skin I leave it on my skin to work its magic (while I brush my teeth) and then wash it off. At night time I use it whenever I have makeup on (otherwise I mostly use tea tree face wash), I massage it on my skin leave it for a while before washing it off.
For the facepack I don’t have a hard and fast rule of once in a week, I use the pack whenever my skin feels dull or when I have had makeup on for an entire day. I believe it detoxifies my skin really well, makes it look brighter. The texture of the pack is rather gritty so i apply a thin layer and then let it dry (takes like 10mins max) then I spray some toner over it and massage it in to my skin for a few minutes leave it for another minute or so and then wash it off. It helps rejuvenate my skin as well as keep my breakouts in control.
Overall I swear by both these products but you have to use them regularly to see the effects, its not an instant noodle… #justsayin
