Review of Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers

Hey Guys

Hope you all doing great 😀

Summers are here & so is Tanning, Oily Face, Uneven Skin Tone, Dead Skin, Blackhead, Whiteheads, Acne and Dull Skin. The problem persists more for men due to lifestyle habits, more exposure to sun & of course skin type. I personally experience issues like Oily Skin, Acne, Blackheads and mostly Tanning & Dull Skin during summers. Recently I came across a company “Whiskers” that offers Facewash with Activated Charcoal in it. Activated Charcoal is a concept that is quite a hot trend in US & UK but lesser known in India. It’s a boon for skin & that’s why I thought to give it a try. So here’s Review of Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers:

First I will provide you some info on Activated Charcoal, what it is & why I call it a boon due to its benefits. Take a look:

What is Activated Charcoal?

Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made from bone char, coconut shells, peat, petroleum coke, coal, olive pits or sawdust. The charcoal is “activated” by processing it at very high temperatures. The high temperatures change its internal structure, reducing the size of its pores and increasing its surface area. This results in a charcoal that is more porous than regular charcoal.

Why Activated Charcoal?

Activated Charcoal has several benefits including:

#1.Activated charcoal draws bacteria, oil, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne

#2.Activated charcoal, when used in a face wash, binds to and helps pull the dirt out of your pores, making them less visible.

#3.Used in a cleanser or mask, activated charcoal can pull the unwanted excess oils from your skin, leaving it smooth.

#4.With its slightly gritty texture, activated charcoal is good for skin exfoliation. Its impurity-sucking properties make it an even better exfoliator!

#5.Activated charcoal can be used to gently face away acne scars and blemishes. It’s slightly abrasive texture helps slough off the dead skin on top of the acne scars, revealing new skin beneath.

And many more!

My Experience with Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers

Before coming to product, I would like to appreciate Whiskers for packaging. Good quality packaging & full points on this. First impression does matter & they proved it correct by working nicely on packaging. I bought it from their website, received the package in 4 working days.

The facewash comes in a sturdy tube with a flip cap like most facewashes comes in. The tube is black & silver in color that rhymes with charcoal theme.

Now coming to the real thing- product & its effects! I have been using Facewash since 1 week now. So here the review of Whiskers Charcoal Face Wash as per my experience with the products:

First, the Facewash is greyish black in color with creamy soft texture. The fragrance is quite pleasant & won’t disturb sensitive noses. I took little amount in my hand and mix it with some water to make some foam. Little amount was enough to make foam for full face. I used it for trial post my gym workout when my face is full oily & sweaty to test it in extreme conditions.

Here’s one surprise, so far in my life, no matter which color Facewash I have used, they all lather into white foam like we all have seen but this one lathered out to greyish black foam. It means they have actually used the quality activated charcoal due to which foam color turned out greyish black. Take a look at below image”

So I applied it on my wet face, rubbed gently for few seconds, left for few seconds and then wash away with normal water. My face felt instant clear & oil free. I thought it will now dry out the skin (I have combination skin with T-zone oily & cheeks super dry) but again surprise – No trace of dryness. Actually activated charcoal tends to dry out skin because it draws away skin oil, impurities and dirt making pores dry. So I checked their ingredients and they have added Glycerin to it so as to provide skin with needed moisture to avoid dryness. Big Deserving Claps for Whiskers for this perfect combo.

Then I checked entire range of ingredients and Google which I wasn’t aware of. Here comes the 3rd surprise – The company has added Licorice Root Extract in facewash. Licorice is root of Glycyrrhiza Glabra that is a natural Skin Lightener & is rarely used by beauty industry in India being costly. Along with this, there are many other good ingredients that are good for skin & are totally harmless. So in short, Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers is completely Free of Harmful Chemicals.

So overall I am pretty happy with the product & got another one so one I carry in my Camera Bag to be used during day time when shooting outdoors & one at home for morning & night usage. I am now going to try their Face Scrub also since I have been looking for something for exfoliation.

Will I Recommend Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers?

Yes, don’t just wait & Go Grab Yours right now. This is a MUST during Summers especially if you too are a Bike Lover like me & no matter summers winters, always on Bike 😀 So this is what your face needs. Beat the Heat this Summer with Charcoal Face Wash by Whiskers.

Rating: 4.5/5 {-0.5 because same range should be available for Women too with equal good ingredients}
