Backwood Face Mask
This charcoal mask is going to be a hit for folks of all types, and is a great addition to your year-round skincare cabinet. At the base of this mixture we started with activated coconut husk charcoal for a deep skin purge, and kaolin clay for a light yet powerful combination oil absorbing agents to mattify the skin while helping moisturize the right places.
We have also added caffeine extract for a major pick-me-up, especially on relaxing weekend mornings, and drizzled it into argan oil and vitamin E oil for simple, clean hydration that will help soothe and repair damaged, dry skin. To top it off, we've added tea tree essential oil into this mask to help fight the greasy zits that tend to pop up with the change of the season.
This mask is especially useful for folks with oily skin, as although it's a very moisture-rich mask, that's what oily skinned folks really do need -- despite maybe thinking otherwise! The charcoal and clay in this mask absorb excess oil that you're looking to get rid of, while the light yet rich caffeine extract and nourishing luxury oils added help tell your skin what kind of oil it is looking for. To finish it off, this mask smells fresh and airy, scented with a blend of pine trees, fresh air, and a hint of vanilla.

First off, the texture of this mask is AMAZING. Super smooth and spreadable, and the color is so opaque that it practically goes on like paint. I love that. I just wish it had a bit less tea tree oil. My skin is somewhat sensitive but can usually handle a little bit, but I didn’t realize tea tree oil is the second ingredient (it also smells strongly like tea tree, but that’s just personal preference!). It stung when it first went on but that dissipated, and my skin feels so soft now (not as dry as tea tree normally makes me). I’m excited to see how it affects my skin and acne long term!
This mask is AMAZING. It is so easy to apply and goes on like butter!! You don’t need to use that much to coat your whole face in a thin layer. It immediately feels so fresh and clean on the skin, you can almost feel it getting into your pores and working. The smell is incredible, I almost didn’t want to take it off. Obsessed!
Smells just like a forest and my skin immediately toned down in terms of redness and felt so smooth. I'll have to keep using it to see how it tackles my acne, but I'm really enjoying it so far!
This stuff is the bomb! A little bit goes a long way, and I love the scent!
