Lets talk charcoal masks for a minute. What’s the deal with activated charcoal anyway? Seems like everyone is raving about it and I’m over here like “uhhh you want me to put WHAT on my face??” But I was excited to learn more when Exuviance sent over a brand new product for me to try out! The Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment!
Charcoal is really earning its keep in the world of beauty. I’ll be the first to say I thought it was a strange addition. I’ve been resisting the “fad” for a while. Seems messy right? Charcoal just seems MESSY. Recently a ton of my girlfriends have been raving about it. They say charcoal has become a game changer in their skin care routine. One friend who has acne prone skin said her skin has NEVER been more clear since using a charcoal masque. Makes sense once you think about it though. Charcoal has been used to absorb toxic substances in the human body for years, why couldn’t we use it on our skin to absorb the bad stuff.
Stress and day-to-day life can (and will) leave our skin congested with dirt and excess oil. This will show up as acne, blackheads and a dull, uneven complexion. No thank you. Standard washing will likely not get deep into your pores to clean the gunk out. You need a product that will act like a magnet to pull out the dirt.. enter the charcoal face masque! Charcoal is literally krytonite for your congested face!
Exuviance was created by Drs. Van Scott and Yu, who are widely recognized as leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology. They discovered the antiaging benefits of Glycolic Acid and created and patented the first Glycolic Peel (impressive). Since their discovery, these doctors have continued to create and develop skin care ingredients backed by many studies. So what does this mean? IT WORKS!
The Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment is a silky mud masque that will instantly decongest pores and detoxify skin. It will also absorb excess oil and debris, so skin looks and feels thoroughly clean, smooth, detoxified, and refined. I want that. I need that.
It contains 23% Active Charcoal, Clay and NeoGlucosamine® mud. Known for its ability to exfoliate and help minimize the appearance of pores, NeoGlucosamine®, a non-acid amino-sugar exfoliator, initiates the clarifying treatment process. Then, Japanese Binchotan Charcoal acts like a magnet, sweeping up surface pore-clogging impurities and environmental toxins to take your skin beyond ordinary cleansing. French Clay, with its high mineral content, absorbs oil and leaves skin feeling revitalized. A botanical blend helps control oiliness and restore skin’s natural balance for a beautiful, smooth finish.
The Detox Mud treatment is recommend for all skin types but especially oily, acne prone skin. To get best results, use this mud masque two to three times a week.
To use: Apply a thin even layer to your entire face. Allow to the masque to completely dry, usually takes 5-15 minutes depending on thickness of application, when dry, remove with fingertips and rinse with water. Avoid using a cloth as this product may stain.
I really enjoy this treatment! It left my skin feeling soft and very clean. I’m not one who has acne or large pores but I will add this product to my skincare routine. It was actually fun to use, my 1 year old gave me some funny looks though! I would reccomend you use this before a shower as it can be a bit messy to wash off (but not terrible). Or buy a black wash cloth! I’m also excited to try out other Exuviance products such as this night treatment, and this collagen booster.
You can purchase the Detox Mud Treatment on the Exuviance website!
