In skincare, there is nothing quite satisfying like a good face mask.
The new dermalogica charcoal rescue masque ticks all the boxes in the satisfaction list: it applies well, you feel working, upon washing acts as a gentle exfoliant and the best part: it sets! Ok, maybe not the best but a pretty satisfying one.
Its star ingredient is the activated Binchotan white charcoal, from Japan, made with Ubame oak using ancient methods resulting in ultra high porosity charcoal, which means much superior (more than 1,000 times its weight) impurities absorption.
As it’s a multitasking mask, it also contains 5% sulphur which removes dulling cells, combats breakouts and revitalises, volcanic ash, sea silt, bamboo stem extract, phytic, lactic and mandelic acids for exfoliation, pantenyl and naringenin, both anti-inflammatories and Chilean wild mint, which is refreshing but also acts as a temporary pore minimiser.
I have to say, its grey colour is great fun to use (I am silly like that), even though it sets very hard, it feels comfortable while on the skin and washes off easier than I thought.
Because of its particles, you can give your skin a gentle exfoliating massage while removing it; it has a good grit to it without being too abrasive.
Skin feels super soft, brighter and healthier from the first use.
Dermalogica has many fantastic face masks and now with the multi-masking beauty trend, it is very easy to find a combination right for you.
You can have a consultation with the dermalogica specialists at their concessions in gorgeous places like Liberty, and come out with a face mask (and why not full skincare regime) which is right for your skin conditions and concerns.
The dermalogica charcoal rescue masque costs £38 launched exclusively at Liberty last month but is now available online and at dermalogica concessions nationwide.
