We've seen a lot when it comes to cleansers. First, there was the appearance of oil cleansers thanks to the growing popularity of double cleansing. Then it was all about the cleansing stick, and it's travel-friendly design. Next up in the cleansing fad were balms otherwise known as a lazy girl's guide to makeup removal and cleansing in one. But this latest appearance in the cleansing world has us doing a total head turn. Courtesy of boscia, meet the cleansing jelly ball.
As a newest part of the Charcoal Pore Perfection line, the Charcoal Jelly Ball Cleanser is the weirdest cleanser we've seen to date. Let us explain. Housed in a balloon-like ball inside a plastic packaging (see above), the cleanser is only activated once popped by a plastic toothpick through the hole in a top of the packaging. Once popped, you take the ball out of the packaging and start cleansing.
The slimy jelly ball looks like something advertised on Nicklelodeon in the '90s but is actually a bundle of activated charcoal! As many skincare enthusiasts know, charcoal also acts as a natural antibacterial agent and a giant magnet to detoxify pores and rid skin of oil and gunk. To use, rub the ball all over your face and cleanse away.
This might be the strangest skincare product we've seen IRL, but it's also one of the most fun ones we've tried. You can shop boscia's new Charcoal Jelly Ball Cleanser for $20 this July. In the mean time, shop these other charcoal finds from the brand!
