NOT SURE IF you’ve heard *wink* but charcoal is kind of a big deal these days. Naturally detoxifying and powerfully purifying, it’s showing up in everything from juice to sponges to salve. With so many companies proudly adding this ingredient to products (we’re kind of hooked on Pressed Juicery’s charcoal lemonade), choosing the best of the bunch can be a challenge – especially when it comes to beauty.
The three coal-powered products below are ones we’ve found and fallen for, not just because they’re all-natural, but because they work amazingly well for even the most sensitive or problem-prone skin types. Beautycounter’s new multi-tasking mask is an instant sensation, this category-defying deodorant is actually a “detox,” and it doesn’t get more luxurious than this crushed pearl soap a few pros we know rely on. We’ve got you covered from head to toe – find something you love and feel free to empty your bathroom cabinets now…
