A charcoal gel mask that decongests and minimises pores, while balancing skin.
This gel mask combines charcoal to draw out impurities and natural clays (kaolin and bentonite) to absorb excess oil helping to minimise and decongest pores. The easy to rinse gel formula also contains willow-bark and glycerin to soothe and lightly-hydrate skin, leaving it smoother, clearer and more balanced.
