January is all about renewal, a clean slate, and this year I didn’t make any grand resolutions but mainly vowed to push reset on some bad skincare habits – too much caffeine, not enough sleep – you get the picture! Beyond avoiding the bad stuff I’m focused on detoxing on the inside (with probiotics) and the outside – from haircare that restores the scalps natural biome to one of the best and time-tested ingredients for detoxing your skin – Charcoal - thanks to Feel Beauty.
Feel is an online only company that’s poised to be the next Glossier, and have a great time doing it! Their products are tailored made for the Instagram life – a texture spray to give you #iwokeuplikethis bedhead, a gold & blush packaged self-tanner ideal for bag spills, a floral spray for glowing skin (I raved about it about a month ago!) and their Brilliant Sheet masks that promise brighter skin in one month. It comes in a 4x monthly supply, a brilliant J move on their part and made it that much easier for me stick to a once a week regimen. Did I mention all their products are total eye candy and just beg to be photographed in all their pastel glory?
But beyond the killer marketing the products are fantastic! I faithfully used the charcoal mask over the course of the month – through the excess of the holidays and mid-winter cold and flu bouts – and found my skin clear and bright. The dual benefits come from purifying charcoal blended with hyaluronic acid that tones and evens the skin. I may have looked a bit scary when using the mask but I highly recommend it for the great results!
