I received this mask several months ago in one of my subscription boxes. I’ve had it for so long that I don’t even remember which box it came in. LOL! Anyway, now that I have been focused on relaunching my YouTube channel, I have been able to try out some products that have just been sitting in my bathroom.
I feel like there has been a lot of hype around charcoal masks lately, so I was very interested in trying the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask by derma e. So, let’s talk about it!
First, let’s see what they say about this product on their website:
Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: (1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; (2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants. Ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (minimal ingredients and allergy-tested), used this formula once or twice a week for skin that looks dramatically fresher, healthier and purely glowing.
So after reading this, I was excited to see if this product would live up to the hype! The mask goes on gray and dries white. While applying it, I noticed that there was a tingling feeling and my face started to get tighter the longer the mask stayed on. That let me know it was working. You can also feel the exfoliating beads as you are massaging it in.
After letting the mask stay on for about 5 minutes, I rinsed it off. I do not feel like my skin was glowing anymore than it normally does, but I did notice that my skin felt quite a bit softer than normal.
I am not sure if I will purchase this in the full size or not since I already have an exfoliator that I use often.
