Skin Type : oily, sensitive and acne-prone
Skin Tone : Fair to wheatish
Today’s review is about a product that truly impressed my acne-prone skin without making it dry. I have really been fascinated with the active charcoal storm, which has been all over the skin care and beauty world. And, I did try a couple of products with active charcoal in the past like Pond’s Active Charcoal Face wash and I really liked it. The only problem is that it used to leave my skin pretty dry. While roaming inside Boots pharmacy, I found this Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel with active Charcoal Daily Detox Facial Wash! Since Boots has a really good name and most of its products have worked pretty well for me, I thought I will try it out and I might like it! I have been using it for a couple of months now and today, I will share my views about it.

My Experience with Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Charcoal Face Wash:
Packaging: Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Charcoal daily detox Face wash comes in a squeezy tube packaging, which is of gray color representing the activated charcoal and a stripe of minty green color probably representing the tea tree in it. The font and the layout of the words are really attractive! The squeezy tube is obviously made of plastic and is good and sturdy. The cap of the tube is translucent white and it is of flip open style. Overall, it’s simple and travel-friendly.
The product is of charcoal gray or charcoal black in color with a little sheen in it. It’s kind of sticky in consistency and on the runnier side too. Now, this face wash foams up really crazily and initially, I had to keep cutting down the amount of product I was taking, as I used to take a lot more than actually needed. After a few days, I was able to determine how much I really need and that was just a very tiny pea-sized amount. So, less is really more with this product. This also means that it is going to last pretty long and is totally worth the money that was spent on it!
This face wash is a wonder in a tube!! I love it!! It deeply cleanses my skin and pores. I haven’t had any breakouts after using it. It does not leave my skin super dry. The tea tree in it actually prevents any breakouts and the active charcoal deeply cleanses the skin and all the pores! That is my understanding. It’s perfect for people who have combination to oily skin. My skin has been feeling so wonderful, fresh and clean, that I think I need to get this again after I am done with it! I am addicted to this face wash!
