I heard about this from a friend! I thought it was just another face wash, I was wrong! I got the mask that comes in the bottle. At first, it seems weird because it doesn't apply to skin smoothly, it is a bit chunky, rough and "sandy" but just put it on skin the best you can! Let it sit for around 7 minutes, I usually do this before the shower! (Or I leave it on overnight) then in the shower, I gently scrub my face with my fingertips, moving around the charcoal mask. Very gently! Then I run my face under water, and get the last bits off softly with a wash cloth and warm water. This leaves my skin feeling extremely clean and smooth! It helps with breakouts, redness and dryness! I'm so glad I tried this and will continue to buy it! It keeps my skin glowing! It feels amazing! Try it!! It's so affordable, too!
