When it comes to face packs, I generally prefer using homemade ones (I am a firm believer in kitchen beauty). But it isn't always possible to use a freshly made pack, which is why I do keep a couple ready to use ones. Over the years I have tried quite a few and up today is the Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal 6 in 1 pack.
The product comes in a white tube with a screw on cap. I really like the fact that it comes in a tube and not in a jar like most other packs. It is travel friendly and easy to use.
The pack is a black coloured paste (it does feel weird to apply it and roam around :D :D). The product spreads very easily and well and you do not need much to cover the face and neck.
The pack is made only of natural ingredients and is not tested on animals :)
I have been using this facepack for over a year now, usuallly once every 8-10 days.
The pack works for all skin types. I have oily combination skin and it works well for me. Smriti has slgihtly dry skin and it works well for her as well.
I leave it on for 15 mintues and then wash off with cold water. Washing it off takes some effort but it isn't too tough. It leaves my skin looking very clean and somewhat brighter. It has not broken me out yet and does not leave my skin too oily or too dry. It doesn't do anything for my pores though.
Smriti uses it more regularly than I do and it has more brightening effect on her. Don't even think about lightening, it doesn't work (and I am not a fan of lightening..what's with the "fair" obsession?!).
Price: 380 INR for 100g
Would I repurchase this?
I don't think so. There is still a lot to finish in the tube and a little goes a long way, so this tube will last me a few more months easily. And I would like to try out something else after it.
The pack itself does not have any drastically remarkable results. It leaves the skin looking fresh, clean and smooth. It doesn't brighten my skin a lot, but works better on Smriti. Maybe more frequent use would show better results.
If you are looking out for a pack that deep cleanses, then you could check this one out. Also, it is fun to walk around with a black facepack and scare people :D :D :P
