I didn't really think I was going to talk about makeup or cleansers here, but it's hard to resist not writing about a natural beauty product that works, smell great, and is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Plus did I mention it's made of bamboo charcoal? Yes that black stuff that looks like soot but actually has the power to absorb a variety of impurities and toxins from your skin.
I bought this little magic stick last week at Sephora on a whim, and I'm so glad I did. I already add charcoal sticks to help purify my water on the go, so I figured it was worth trying it on my skin. It's so easy to use - simply swipe, use a little water, lather up and rinse. And yes I can already see a huge difference - it's made my skin feel softer, brighter, and tighter. I only wish it came in a larger size to use on the rest of my body in the shower.
