I have combination skin and my T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is prone to breakouts and congestion. Boscia’s Charcoal Pore pudding $38.00 aims to balance the skin and minimise the appearance of pores, making it ideal for all skin types and suitable for skin conditions such as oiliness, dryness and congested pores.
What Boscia say about the product
“Unique two part Pore Pudding powered by black and white charcoal. The powerful pair work together to minimize the appearance of pores while balancing skin for ideal results. Apply all over skin or targeted areas in need of extra attention.”
The packaging is simple, a clear jar with a black lid. I prefer minimalist design, and it allows the product to show through, which is the real showstopper.
The swirl of black and white charcoal looks so striking that I almost didn’t want to ruin it by scooping out some product. I apply the product to my face with my fingers and massage it around to mix the two clays. The product has quite a strong smell but I don’t mind it. After using the mask my skin feels soft and clean without feeling tight or dry which is how a lot of charcoal masks seem to leave my skin feeling. My oily areas aren’t as shiny and pores are less congested.
Key Ingredients and What They Do
- Activated Bamboo Charcoal – purifies and detoxifies.
- Binchotan White Charcoal Powder – moisturises and balances
- Kaolin Clay – cleanses and balances
- Jojoba Seed Extract – protects and nourishes
- Willowherb extract – calms and soothes
Boscia charcoal pore pudding is one of my favourite charcoal based masks to use. It helps with excess oil production and breakouts without stripping the skin of its natural oils and leaves it feeling lovely and soft. I recommend this if you have found other masks too harsh and drying. The only down side to this product is I can’t find it in the UK so I have to order it from Sephora.
