DIY Charcoal Facemask

I usually only test products that I am sent for reviews, but this do it yourself charcoal mask craze got me curious.  There are two ingredients.  You need activated charcoal capsules and school glue.

I am not sure why, but Wal-Mart was out of Elmer’s school glue in anything but clear, so I went with CraZart.  The Charco Caps were the only charcoal capsules I could find, as well.

The instructions are quite simple.  Take two activated charcoal capsules and open them onto a plate or in a bowl.  I am using a disposable plate this time.

Next, add some glue.  I do not really care for this brand.  It seemed really thick.

Mix into a thick, dark paste.

I left the mask on my face for over an hour before it dried.  When you use it, be careful not to get any hair in it.  It will work basically like a wax and remove your hair.  Watch out for your eyebrows and baby hairs along your forehead.  The mask left me feeling super soft.  I love it and will be doing it again.

Here is a demonstration of the mask removal.  I am not going to lie, it kind of hurt to remove it.
