Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque Review

Dermalogica has been my go-to skincare brand since my early teen years after my mum introduced it to me (thanks mum!). It’s been with me through my teenage acne to my now sensitive and hormonal skin. Tried and tested, Dermalogica seems to be a brand I always return to. The brands variety of products means that it’s perfect for women (and men) of all different ages and skin concerns.

In my recent hunt for a new face mask I once again returned to my trusted Dermalogica, after deciding to trial out their new on the market, ‘Charcoal Rescue Masque’. After feeling as though my skin was congested and lack-luster, I was searching for a product to thoroughly detoxify and brighten my skin. Keeping in mind that my skin is also sensitive, I was also looking for a product that wouldn’t irritate it. 

Introducing the ‘Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque’! According to Dermalogica the mask is an all-in-one treatment which detoxifies, brightens and invigorates all skin conditions. The activated ‘Binchotan Charcoal’ is said to absorb impurities whilst ‘Sulfur’ promotes cell turnover. I’ve been using the mask for the last few weeks and absolutely loving it, already noticing the difference in my skins texture. 

I apply the masque all over my face and neck, making sure I don’t get it near my eyes. The black substance has a minty smell to it that makes my skin tingle and tighten. After about 15-20 minutes I dampen my face with warm water and gently rub the mask in. The product contains tiny exfoliating beads that gently clean out the pores,  stripping away the dead skin cells. Finally washing the rest of the product off. The result is fresh feeling, detoxified and smooth skin. 

I’ve been using the mask in combination with the Dermalogica ‘Ultra-calming cleanser’ and ‘Daily Microfoliant’, as well as the Neutrogena ‘oil-free’ moirsturiser. 


Excuse the gross photo of me. But whats a skincare review without a dodgy application pic?

Love and Light
