It is chock full of antibacterial, healing, purifying ingredients. Now I will admit it does look a little odd & I did have my doubts about applying something goopy & black to my face to help with breakouts & blackheads - I just couldn't figure out how that would work. I was sure my pores would look dirtier & that my face would never come clean again.
But this scrub is magic. I like to gently scrub it in before I get in the shower then let it steam into my pores for five minutes before washing it off with my favourite cream cleanser & I am left with bright, sparkling, clear skin!
What makes this scrub so darn good?
The activated charcoal gives this scrub its anti-acne properties as it draws out impurities, unclogs pores & purifies your skin leaving it clean & clear. The Shea butter is great for soothing inflamed skin, the coconut oil & turmeric are antibacterial & the baking soda gives your skin a nice fine scrub for super clean pores.
