Glass tests … Nügg Charcoal Face Mask: Detoxifying

THIS new charcoal mask from US-beauty brand Nügg is the kind that, upon application, makes your face looks noticeably dark and dirty, like you’ve just emerged from a coal mine, which is so prevalent in my part of east London. However that “dirt” would be the charcoal, a great internal and external toxin-absorbing ingredient. It also contains kaolin clay, oatmeal, and tea-tree oil, which makes for a pleasant, tingling sensation when you put it on.

Clay often has a drying effect on my somewhat mature skin, but not in this combination, which seems to draw out all the tell-tale signs of a late night out and replace my old face with something noticeably brighter and glowing.

An excellent emollient for the morning after a heavy night. Bonus points for eliciting an unexpected, albeit slightly tart compliment of the “have you had something ‘done’?” variety. That will do me, as this mask will. More, please
