Current Obsession: Charcoal

When it comes to beautifying potions, these days we're all about charcoal. This unlikely ingredient can be found from some fab beauty brands and we're so in love, we stock a few charcoal products.

Because charcoal attracts toxins, it's brilliant at cleansing every skin type. Charcoal can help make pores appear smaller, balance oily skin, treat acne, detoxify and soothe irritated skin. In basic terms, you need this multi-benefit ingredient in your life, STAT.
