Charcoal Skincare Products: Black is Slimming for Pores too

Apparently, the color black is not only slimming when worn on your body, but also slimming (for your pores, that is) when used on your face. Below are some of our favorite products that will detoxify your pores by drawing out impurities and excess oils from the skin.

Charcoal Beauty

BIORE DEEP PORE CHARCOAL CLEANSER ($8)Squeaky-clean pores don’t have to cost a fortune, this budget-buy doesn’t skimp on the pore-cleansing power. Gentle enough for every day use, skin is left refreshed.

BOSCIA SKINCARE KONJAC CLEANSING SPONGE WITH BAMBOO CHARCOAL ($18) – One of our favorite cleansing tools just upped the ante with the inclusion of bamboo charcoal. Deep, yet gentle cleansing without irritation? Sounds like a win-win.

DR. CI:LABO BASIC BLACK CHARCOAL GEL ($52) – This unique product combines the oil-absorption power of charcoal with the blemish-busting capabilities of salicylic acid to minimize the appearance of blemishes and leave skin feeling smooth and oil-free all day.

ERNO LASZLO SEA MUD DEEP CLEANSING BAR ($45) – The combination of charcoal and sea mud removes excess oil and dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and smooth without a hint of dryness, belying the fact that your skin has been super cleaned.

LUSH DARK ANGELS CLEANSER ($13) – While the charcoal in this cleanser absorbs excess oil, is also includes black sugar to gently exfoliate the skin.

ORIGINS MASKS TO-GO CLEAR IMPROVEMENT ACTIVE CHARCOAL MASK ($8) – This cult-favorite just that much better by making it easy to deep-cleanse your pores while on-the-go. Each package includes four one-time use pods, perfect for popping into your carry-on. Take that TSA!

SEPHORA BAMBOO CHARCOAL BLOTTING LINENS ($10) – Wave buh-bye to the midday oil slick caused by overactive pores that threatens to take the focus away from your perfectly-applied makeup. These blotting linens easily soak-up excess oils leaving your skin feeling and looking refreshed, without disturbing said makeup.
