Incorporating a face mask into your skin care routine is an important way to give your skin some extra attention. You can really target to your skins needs to make sure it gets the extra treatment it needs at that moment. Recently Derma E sent me a couple of skin care items to try out. After being sick for about 2 weeks, the Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask was a very welcome addition to my skin care routine. As I mentioned in my January favorites I felt like I really needed to purge my skin. It seemed like the perfect time to add this mask to my routine.
Claims: “This dual-action formula purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then exfoliates away micropollutants for purely glowing skin. Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: (1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; (2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.“

Pros: Feels soothing on the skin. Removes impurities. Works as a spot treatment. Gently exfoliates. Cruelty free and vegan brand.
Cons: If you have very dry, this may be a bit irritating.
The Verdict: I was pleasantly surprised by the Derma E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask. I have dry skin, sometimes verging on combination skin, and this mask is meant for normal and oily skin types. I was worried that it would be too harsh or drying, but it worked wonders on my skin. It wasn’t at all drying and did a great job of making my skin feel clean and clear. Not only did I use it as a mask, but found it effective as a spot treatment as well. I love that after you use it as a mask, you can exfoliate your skin while removing the mask. It left my skin perfectly prepped for a heavy duty moisturizer to help restore it. This is a great mask and is now a regular part of my skin care routine.
