They keep telling us activated charcoal will save our lives (along with green tea, kale and quinoa). You can eat it, whiten your teeth with it or smear it on your face. Um, okay, we’ll get right on that. If you’re not really into DIY charcoal life-remedies and you’re a little skeptical about ingesting the thing you cook burgers over, have no fear. You can still get all the benefits of activated charcoal without the hassle or fear of constipation (seriously, look it up). With Graydon Clinical Luxury‘s Bamboo Charcoal Sponge you can draw out and scrape off all the pesky dirt in your pores and you don’t even have to mix up a mask.
Don’t be deceived by its puck-like appearance and texture, you’re going to want to rub this thing all over your face. It’s a certified organic sponge made from the fibers of the konjac plant with the addition of charcoal and bamboo. Oh, it just sounds good for you! Konjac sponges are a big deal because the texture is great on your skin and they dry quickly to eliminate lingering bacteria. The bamboo allows for a deeper cleanse and the charcoal draws bacteria, chemicals and dirt to the surface of the skin so it can be washed away. It’s like a superhero team packed into this little sponge, and their mission is to make your skin flawless.
If you’re weirded out by the idea of using a sponge to wash your face, don’t be. The texture is so nice and your face will feel so clean that soon you’ll be breaking up with your washcloth for good.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Anyone who wants to feel like their face is as clean and smooth as the surface of their dishes.
