Generally, pore cleansing masks feel so drying on my skin, but the latest launch by Boscia – Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment claims to minimize the appearance of pores and also balance the levels of hydration on the skin. Sounds intriguing, right? Read on to know more!
What it is: A black-and-white swirled charcoal face mask that detoxifies, minimizes the appearance of pores, and balances the skin’s hydration levels. Solutions for: Pores, Dryness, Oiliness.
If you want to know more: The Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment refines pores and lifts away clogging impurities and excess oil, without leaving skin feeling dry, irritated, or stripped. Packed with white charcoal, known to absorb 1,000 times its weight in impurities, it visibly purifies and deep cleanses, while binchotan white charcoal moisturizes and balances skin’s hydration levels. Kaolin clay boosts the benefits of both black and white charcoals by absorbing excess oil for a smooth, radiant complexion. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. This product is dermatologist tested and safe for sensitive skin. It is free of preservatives, artificial fragrances and colorants, gluten, and ethanol alcohol.
My Experience with Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment:
This charcoal mask comes housed in a transparent jar with a black screw lid. The product has an interesting swirl design. The name of the brand and product is printed around the jar.
First off, this mask has a strong and fresh fruity scent which I personally prefer. If you are sensitive towards fragrance in skin care products, you should not get this since the scent won’t fade away until you rinse off the mask from your face.
This pore pudding mask is said to be a mixture of black charcoal, white charcoal and kaolin clay. The black mask cleans and reduces the appearance of pores and white charcoal and kaolin clay help balance hydration levels of the skin.
The best part is when you are applying this mask – you see a mixture of black and white clay turning into grey and it almost looks and feels as if you are applying face paint. It has a creamy texture, so easily glides on the skin.
The brand has advised to apply this mask on for 10 to 15 minutes, but I keep it for 30 minutes. Every time I use this product, my skin looks visibly bright and clean, pores look smaller, and my skin does not feel dry or parched. It does tingle a little, and at first, I freaked out a little, but after I had washed it off, I could see the results.
This mask doesn’t irritate my skin or cause any redness, no breakouts either.
Lately, I have been using it twice a thrice a week to make sure my pores are clean and there is no chance of acne.
