ASDM Beverly Hills Charcoal Mask Review

Do you feel your skin really needs something extra that will revitalize and bring glow to tired and dull looking skin? You feel you have tried everything and still do not see any visible results? Well then ASDM Beverly Hills has the answer to your skin worries. Their Charcoal Mask is really potent stuff, you will love it from first use. And what's better you will see results from the first use.

I was lucky to get to try their mud mask and I am absolutely loving it! They have packed some really powerful ingredients in 2 oz jar. The package is really cute and you get bonus brush with the mask. NO more getting your fingertips messy to apply the face mask. The brush bristles make it super easy to apply the mask and that too evenly.

I love mud mask and "ACTIVATED CHARCOAL" is kind of new breath though ingredient in skin care due to its main feature to pull out toxins from skin, extract out excess sebum and impurities leaving skin super clean! This ingredient is fast becoming must have for people suffering with acne.

But what makes this face mask the HOLY GRAIL for any skin - immediately revitalizes tired & dull skin, increasing circulation, detoxifying skin, shrinking pores, and plumping out wrinkles - is the below list of additional ingredients besides activated charcoal:

Sodium hyaluronic acid: Topically applying hyaluronic acid helps to improve your skin’s moisture content and thus strengthening your skin’s barrier. A healthier barrier means plumper, smoother, younger looking skin! 

Glycolic Acid: Topically applying glycolic acid helps to chemically exfoliate the epidermis, removing dead & dull skin and bringing new skin to the surface. All of our glycolic peels are unbuffered, conserving their high strength and low pH level. For this reason we strongly suggest starting at 10% and slowly moving up in strength as your skin adjusts to the peel. We carry glycolic acid from 10% to 70%.

Green Tea Extract: Green tea extract is an antioxidant rich ingredient that has powerful anti-inflammatory and skin protecting properties. It helps to improve skin’s health and as a direct result displays preventative anti-aging benefits.

Grape Seed Extract: Grape seed extract is one of the most potent antioxidants out there, consisting of proanthocyanidins, polyphenols, flavonoids, and anthocyanins. In addition, it has been shown to assist in wound healing and overall improving skin’s health. Heathy skin= younger skin!

Artichoke Extract: Artichoke extract may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind for ageless skin, but it should certainly be! Besides inhibiting photoaging, it also helps to reduce the appearance of pores. 

Pomegranate Extract: Pomegranate extract is another super antioxidant that helps to reduce inflammation while protecting skin from environmental damage. Vitamin C definitely has some competition!

Niacinamide: Niacinamide is also known as Vitamin B3. It also helps to visibly improve skin’s elasticity, maximizing skin’s protective barrier. As an additional treat, Niacinamide also helps to treat uneven skin tone, making it a must have for those struggling with wrinkles and breakouts.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: Aloe vera leaf extract helps to increase fibroblast replication, resulting in an increase in collagen and elastin fibers. Also improves skin’s health and healing abilities. Peppermint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil helps to boost circulation and revive dull skin.

Now let's talk about how to apply the mask:

Cleanse skin with charcoal cleanser. Pat skin dry. Using fan brush, apply a thin layer of charcoal mask over entire face (avoiding nostrils and eyes). Leave on for 2-10 minutes depending on skin's sensitivity. Face may get red and feel hot due to the increase of circulation to the area. Redness will subside within a few minutes. Follow up with charcoal moisturizer.

The scent of the mask is refreshing, minty sot of I think due to peppermint essential oil. After applying the mask it does feel tingling sensation and then little bit hot but that tells you mask is actually working. It is not uncomfortable or did not cause any redness on skin. I left it for 15 minutes and then washed off. It comes off easily with water and pat dry.

I was genuinely surprised at how good my skin felt - soft and smooth. My skin had healthy glow to it. I continued using for 3 weeks and well I am totally hooked to this stuff. My skin has never looked so vibrant and soft naturally!! Try it once and you will never regret it!!
