From toothpaste to shampoo activated charcoal seems to be a trending beauty product in 2017 and for good reason too! This unconventional “beauty” product has been around many, many years and was used in Ancient Chinese Medicine to help remove toxins, bacteria and chemicals from the body. In skin care it can used as a Detoxifier and Pore Cleanser. Other properties include Anti-Aging, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Viral and Acne Reduction.
I was super excited to test out Lime and Lotus Organic’s new Charcoal Facial Masque to see if it lived up to all the hype.

- Repairing And Rejuvenating Damaged Skin Cells

- Providing pH Balance to the Face
- Moisturizing And Nourishing The Base Of Your Skin
I have yet to have a Lime and Lotus Organic’s product come through that I don’t like and this is no exception. The masque will work on all skin types but it’s great for those with dry skin. It also does wonders for those with acne prone skin like myself. I did see a reduction in the amount of acne on my face. I used it on my chest area as well and that seemed to really help too.
This is not the peel-off kind of charcoal masque. It’s not as dark as I thought it would be but rather grayish in color.
I like that you don’t have to leave it on for a long time as with some masks. You can rinse it off in as little as 5 minutes but I would leave it on longer (about 15-20 minutes) if you have the time. For added benefits and moisture follow up with a facial toner and moisturizer. Lime and Lotus also carries a Peppermint Facial Toner and Daily Face Cream that works great.
