Dear Santa: I made the naughty list, send the coal!

“Fine old Christmas, with the snowy hair and ruddy face, had done his duty that year in the noblest fashion, and had set off his rich gifts of warmth and color with all the heightening contrast of frost and snow.”

-George Elliot

Santa might be coming with presents for all the good little boys and girls but as an adult who values skincare, I’ll take making the naughty list and getting some coal in my stocking! If you haven’t checked out charcoal infused beauty products you are missing out. A natural purifier, coal is excellent at clearing your skin to give you your most blemish free year yet! #THANKSSANTA

If you haven’t checked out charcoal infused beauty products you are missing out. A natural purifier, coal is excellent at clearing your skin to give you your most blemish free year yet! #THANKSSANTA

1: Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser

Y’all this stuff is warming. It’s the best sensation ever at the end of a long day or first thing in the morning. It leaves your skin feeling cleansed but not dry or tight! I swear after using this for a week my pores practically disappeared.

2: Dr. Bright Mineral Whitening Toothpaste

The detoxifying nature of coal makes it the perfect addition to your toothpaste! It naturally freshens (not just masks!) your breath and the fine texture means it lifts and removes stains for whiter teeth and no harsh chemicals.

3: Beauty Blender

I’m sure you know all about the blending power of the original Beauty Blender sponge, but did you know they make a coal infused one? Coal is a natural antibacterial substance, which means your sponge will stay fresh and clean for longer. Yay for not feeling so badly about not washing it on the regular!

4: LUSH Coalface

I have raved about the #MAGIC of this soap before. I just can’t help it! I credit this coal product for getting rid of my acne and keeping my face clear. If you haven’t checked out LUSH before, I highly recommend their products. I will warn you- this soap does leave your face “tight” so even if you’re battling acne moisturize after!

5: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge with Charcoal

I recently got turned on to these sponges and I’m never going back. Basically, you wet it and massage your face in circles for cleansing and exfoliation- no cleanser needed! It’s great for moments when you are feeling uber lazy but still need to get your skin cleansed- yet more environmentally friendly than wipes!

Are you on the naughty list and needing some more coal in your life?

I’d love to hear if you use any of these or are wanting to try them out!

    How clever are you!? I love the title and theme of this post, beauty! I’ve tried a few coal products before and loved it. My niece actually got a few gift cards to Sephora for Christmas and purchased some Boscia skincare, we have similar skin types, so I’m waiting for her to give me the go and then I’ll be trying out the line and perhaps that cold one you’ve shared here, too! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and are enjoying the end to the holiday season, beauty!

    I need to try these! I was using coal as a teeth whitener before but I felt like it was stripping the enamel (of course it could have been all in my mind, lol). I love LUSH products so I’m happy to see that they made the list. I love your reviews of each product! Great post! xx

    Love how you tied the charcoal in with Santa– so creative! I still haven’t tried out much in the area of charcoal, I always hear how awesome it is. This is another reminder that I need to try it! Thanks for some ideas on where to start.
