The benefits extend beyond your complexion - charcoal can be used all over your body and worked into your hair care regimen to balance an oily scalp. Enter The Body Shop's Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask ($35) which sells once every fifteen seconds. Inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, this 100% vegan tingling clay mask is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves, and organic tea tree oil.
What's more? 97% of online reviewers revealing that they would recommend this charcoal mask to a friend. One enthusiastic reviewer wrote: "This is hands down the best face mask I’ve ever used! It smells amazing tightens your pores and holy, THE GLOW! I was shocked about how glowy my face looked after one use. You really should invest in this, plus the green tea leaves also works as an exfoliator which is another thumbs up for me. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed."
To accompany the cult product, the Body Shop just dropped the new Purifying Clay Wash ($22) for daily use. Whereas the mask is best applied only twice per week - leave on for five to ten minutes before gently washing off with warm water.
