New Skincare Staples


Over the past few months, I've been hearing more and more people talking about charcoal and the benefits that it can have in regard to health and beauty. Charcoal teeth whitening products, charcoal hair care and charcoal face masks are amongst some of the most popular that seem to be trending as of late. I'm always intrigued by the latest trends, even if I don't actually give them a go myself, but this time, I knew that I didn't want to miss out!

When I was scrolling through either someone's blog or their YouTube channel, I noticed that they were raving about the Garnier Pure Active Face Wash and how it's their go to because of the way it cleanses their oily, spot prone skin. I'd never seen this wash or the range advertised before, but seeing as I trusted this particular influencer and their opinions, I decided that I might as well give it a try.

For the past year or so, I've been fortunate enough to only get the odd breakout here and there, but recently my skin has been playing up and I've been in desperate need of some new additions to my routine which I can trial! This particular product is an anti-blackhead charcoal cleansing gel, which quite literally sounds like a miracle in a bottle for someone whose skin produces a fair bit of oil. This wash has a really nice consistency, as it's not really runny, but it isn't super thick and uncomfortable either. You only need a minimal amount, because a little can go a long way and the charcoal can be quite strong otherwise. Whenever I apply it to my face, I'm always left feeling really refreshed and zingy (if that's even the word!), especially when I have been working in McDonalds some evenings. It smells like it would revitalise your skin and it most definitely does that for me. For only £4.99 if you get it from Boots, I don't think you can go wrong at all!

If you want to be as sassy as I am, you can pick up the matching 3 in 1 Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Wash, Mask and Scrub which has multi-purpose uses to suit your needs and your preferences. Unlike the face wash, this has a much thicker texture and it has more substance to it. Having said that, it looks more like a charcoal mask when on the skin and it has stained my shower every time I use it, much to my mum's despair! If you want something that you can leave on for a couple of minutes whilst you condition your hair or shave your legs, then this would be a good purchase for you. The charcoal, blueberry extracts and salicylic acid really do make you feel like you're getting value for your money and properly treating your skin, even though Garnier is an affordable brand.

These are the only 2 products in the range at the moment, but I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled to see if any new additions make an appearance in the future.

What do you guys think of charcoal skincare? Will you be making a purchase any time soon?

Lots of love always,
