The Charcoal Craze

Charcoal beauty products are popping up all over right now, and there is a perfectly good reason for it…CHARCOAL WORKS! It’s wonderful at absorbing, cleaning, and detoxifying. For these reasons, I cannot deny my love for charcoal based products. Even some of my friends and family most resistant to cleaner beauty products have jumped on the charcoal train! Here are some of my charcoal favorites…

It’s the best at removing my makeup at night and cleaning my pores. It’s also my best selling product as a Beautycounter consultant. If that’s not enough proof, even my husband uses it now as both a face and body wash.

Piperwai Natural Deodorant: This deodorant contains super-absorbent activated charcoal. It rubs in clear and  doesn’t discolor your clothes. I’ve tried more natural deodorants than I care to admit, and this one excels as my favorite. The only downside is having to apply it with your fingers. It’s a small price to pay for a safer deodorant, though.

bc_bc_3-balancingfacialmist_selling01_webBalancing Facial Mist: Another favorite! This mist preps skin, sets makeup, and refreshes throughout the day. Specially formulated with charcoal powder and kaolin clay, it absorbs excess oil, refines skin texture, and helps calm redness. I use it both morning and night to keep my skin fresh!

The charcoal infused bristols help absorb toxins in the mouth, reducing the growth of cavity-forming bacteria that may cause bad breath. Plus, charcoal naturally whitens teeth your teeth!

bc_bc_3-balancingmask_selling01_webBalancing Facial Mask: Can all my charcoal mask loving friends raise your hands? Charcoal masks work wonders, especially if you have issues with large pores! This mask contains activated charcoal, which helps minimizes the appearance of pores, and salicylic acid, which stimulates exfoliation. I use it 3 times per week.
