Quick Fix Facials: Purifying Charcoal Mask £4.99
After avoiding face masks for years due to a dodgy tomato red skin reaction, I finally decided to dive back in and try a new brand with it. My skin has been looking a bit duller recently so this seemed perfect!
While searching Boots, charcoal seemed to be a key ingredient in so many new products. It's said to work as a 'magnet' to bring out impurities and give pores a deep clean, which after trying I would agree with. In fact, Origins do a similar one called Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask, which at £22 was outside of my budget, making this a great more affordable dupe. This mask also contains dragon fruit and cinnamon which help to give it a slightly nicer more spicy smell, while clarifying the skin. Though not the most appealing colour, this mask applies smoothly and causes no irritations at all. With around 10 minutes drying time, it is easy to wipe off with a cloth and warm water.
After using this 1-2 times a week, for around a month I can really start to see a difference. They do several other masks so will definitely be trying some more!
