About three weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive three skincare products to try out and review for you guys! A Jelly Charcoal Cleanser, Peel off Face Mask and a Multi-Active Night Cream.
Carbon White is a New Zealand made, natural skincare company who use activated carbon as a main ingredient in their skincare. Activated carbon has multiple benefits for the skin like oil absorption (amazing for me as I’m an oily skin girl) rids bacteria and helps fight acne.
Jelly Charcoal Cleanser:
I tend to look out for cleansers that help control the excess oil I get around my T-Zone, so when I read that activated charcoal has the ability to absorb oil, I immediately got excited. This product is very different from any other cleanser I have used. The Jelly charcoal cleanser looks scary at first with its pitch black colour and thick consistency, but once you massage it into your face it mellows out to a light grey colour and works deep into your skin. The activated carbon starts to detoxify the skin and Jojoba oils injects a healthy dose of Vitamin A, D & E . This cleanser is hard working yet very gentle on my sensitive skin and left my face feeling refreshed and glowing, without my excess oil!
The Peel off Face Mask:
This mask is the perfect opportunity for the charcoal to work its magic! Infused with Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B3, the mask offers a one stop shop for not only evening skin tone, but removing any dead skin and giving your makeup a flawless base to work with.
After using the cleanser, I applied the mask over my nose, chin and forehead area. Once the mask dried, I started to slowly peel it off and was actually amazed at how much dirt it pulled out of my skin. My nose was visibly clearer and my chin and forehead was as a soft as a baby’s. Plus, how fun is it to peel off a mask and see how much dirt it draws out of your pores! You will be amazed.
Multi-Active Night Cream:
This night cream is a new favourite of mine. The packaging is simple, beautiful and straight to the point. Boasting ingredients such as white willow herb to calm redness in the skin, Hibiscus flower known to be a holy grail in anti-ageing and Angelica root extract leaving your skin silky and soft.
I have been using this nightly and I can honestly say that I have seen such an improvement in my skin. My redness has decreased and I wake up with refreshed, hydrated and smooth skin. I could not be more impressed and obsessed. It’s not an oily formula (bonus for my oily skin type ladies and gents) and is quickly absorbed into the skin.
A major bonus is that my partner even comments on how much he loves the natural calming scent of it! A forever favourite.
