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!
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.
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
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!
