From my experience, you either love Sundays or you hate them. I’m a part of the former; I think Sundays are the perfect day of the week to sleep in, relax, and get in some serious, much-deserved self care. One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday is pamper myself, and that includes taking care of my skin. While I tend to reach for L’Oreal’s pure clay masks to get the job down, this time, I tried Cosmedix’s Detox Activated Charcoal Mask–and I was impressed.

The cruelty-free skincare brand first caught my attention by its pretty packaging, but just because the packaging looks good doesn’t necessarily mean the product works, too. Thankfully, I found that this mask worked very well. Charcoal masks work a bit like magnets do; they draw out dirt and oil from deep inside your pores, leaving your skin feeling and looking cleaner than ever, and this one did just that. Since it is recommended that you use this product only at night, I put it on just before bed, and after 15 minutes of it working its magic, it was simple to remove. It’s a very gentle mask and didn’t leave my skin dry or irritated like some charcoal masks do after being left on for too long. I’ll definitely be using this one twice a week over these next couple months!

Have you tried Cosmedix yet? What do you think about their products?
