So you guys know by now how much I love myself abit of skincare. In fact I would go as far as to say perhaps a bit more than makeup. So when the lovely people at PROCOAL asked me if I wanted to try their Activated Charcoal Exfoliating face scrub, how could I say no!
I have tried a few Charcoal face scrubs in the past and as this one promises to be powerful and detoxifying this seems to me that it’s going to be really good!
First let me tell you about about PROCOAL.
Foundered in 2016 by a Husband and Wife duo who wanted to make ethically made products that puts you first.
All the products are animal cruelty free and this one is also free from Parabens, SLS, Mineral Oil and Paraffin so you know it’s all good stuff you are popping onto your face.
Expertly developed in the UK using specially selected active constituents to help remove impurities this facial scrub gently exfoliates, cleanses and detoxify skin,

The ingredients are clearly listed on the tube, they include..
Activated Charcoal to help clear deep seated pores, removing pollutants to purify the complexion
Calendula Oil to help retire skins water balance and improve moisture retention
Pumice to help gently exfoliate dead surface skin cells and unclog the pores
Allantoin to help reduce skin irritations and stimulates the growth of healthy tissue
Firstly the bottle is lightweight and you get 75ml of product. The bottle might seem quite small in comparison to others but I found a little bit of product goes a long way and you do only need the tiniest of the product for your full face.
It would probably last just as long as a similar product twice the size. The size of the product also makes it ideal for travelling as it comes well under the 100ml on board flight limit.
The product smelt really nice as well. It wasn’t to overpowering and didn’t sting or irritate at all. I was expecting the product to be grey or black in colour but it wasn’t. It wasn’t to harsh on my skin and it rinsed off very well with no hint of residue. Afterwards my skin felt really clear and soft to the touch. I noticed my makeup applied better with no primer as my pores weren’t so visible and the odd spot that I can sometimes get, you know the hormonal ones that come from time to time never seemed to appear. It’s recommended that you use the product 2-3 times a week to see the best results. I must admit I did want to use it everyday after seeing the results of the first day. I have used it a couple of times as well since as a face mask even though it doesn’t say anything about this on the tube and the brand do a separate charcoal mask as well. I thought that it wouldn’t hurt and the results were amazing.

It’s definitely made me want to try more products from the PROCOAL range ( definitely the face mask!) and even though this item was gifted I would be tempted to repurchase as this fantastic product is £8.99 but the good news is that readers to this blog can get an amazing 20% off using this link below...
So if you fancy giving it a try it’s not going to cost you the full amount because let face it we all love a bargain.
You don’t even have to just take my opinion there are some amazing reviews online as well and we all can’t be wrong!
Until next time
