Aldi charcoal mud mask

It is some kind of magic. Anyone else tried it? I picked up a tub today on a whim and gave it a go and my skin looks amazing! Probably not for the sensitive or dry of skin though.

I use pure activated charcoal on my teeth and have made a mask with it in the past and loved the results.

I've used other charcoal masks for my oily skin but never had results like this. I did a bit of googling and apparently this is a dupe of a Glamglow version which is £42. It's a special buy so they might not come round again - thought I'd give people a heads-up!

Damn you...I bought it today (and a garnet steamer and waffle maker!)

Looking forward to a relaxing bath and a face mask later

Garment steamer ffs!

I brought this today too !! Along with some micellar water. I also bought children’s cutlery and wine. I love a random Aldi shop 😂

Just trying mine out now. Fingers crossed it sorts my skin out.
Used to use Glamglow bit definitely can't afford that now on maternity pay!

Let us know how it compares to Glamglow!

I bought it last week. I'm oh fab of glam glow, but I was surprised by how good the Aldi one is. There's are loads of good ingredients in the Aldi one, glycolic/lactic acid, bentonite etc and it works very well. The texture is nicer than glam glow and my skin felt very clean and was super radiant when I washed it off. It's great for the price. I'm going to pop back and get a few more jars.

Also try the charcoal cleanser in the same range. It's great too.

Is this good for oily acne prone skin?

FabalaTheGreenGirl Fri 23-Feb-18 22:25:39

Dunno about acne, but I have oily skin and it worked a treat.

singingpinkmonkey Fri 23-Feb-18 23:38:57

Really impressed! Pores looked a lot smaller and my skin felt lovely. Definitely think it's on a par with Glamglow if not better.
I actually preferred the texture of this Aldi one.

FabalaTheGreenGirl Fri 23-Feb-18 23:58:31

I'm going to go and snap up the ones that are left in my local tomorrow.

I like a lot! Tend to buy one every time I'm in Aldi, just in case it suddenly vanishes. That said, it's been in our Aldi for absolutely ages so I've got quite the collection and should stop doing that really blush

Bought this yesterday and tried it! I'm prone to oily skin and when I woke up this morning my skin wasn't oily and a few pimples I had looked much better. Thank you!

Did it make your face tingle?

PhyllisWig Mon 26-Feb-18 21:14:27

Sheep who got it yesterday too. Made my face tingle yes and it was a bit sensitive today which is odd as I am tough as old boots.

Pores look better but a couple of spots came up.

Celticlassie Mon 26-Feb-18 21:28:47

Do you know if it can be used if you're breastfeeding? Everything I've bought recently bloody can't!

Commuterface Mon 26-Feb-18 22:10:17

I bought the charcoal micellar water and it’s amazing! Takes off every scrap of makeup

FabalaTheGreenGirl Mon 26-Feb-18 22:44:41

It does make the face tingle and even sting a bit, yes. Steer clear if you have sensitive skin! I found the results well worth it though - bought another and am going to be using sparingly so it lasts for months!

I slipped a pack into my trolley this evening- looking forward to trying it out
