So, when the New Year began I decided I should take more time to look after my skin. I don’t have overly troublesome skin, I’m quite fair, and my skin can be oily around the ‘T’ zone but I am prone to the occasional break out.
My weekly routine includes exfoliating my whole body the day before I use a light self-tan. Moisturise when necessary! (Terrible I know!) if it ain’t broke don’t fix it right?! I always wanted to find a really good product for my skin, one that doesn’t cause me to break out or cause a reaction. But I always seemed to be bamboozled by the world of skincare products out there. So, to my delight, I found this aesthetically pleasing, gothic scrub from Tarabusi Creek, which just screamed my name from the moment I saw it!
Ive been really keen to try a black bath bomb or black scrub since they first became popular but none have lived up to their hype – until now!
The Phoenix Charcoal Scrub from Tarabusi Creek looked and smells devilishly good! I used it to exfoliate in the bath and to my surprise it turned my bath water pitch black!! Not grey, or misty, pure black!!!! To my mind, its’ scent has a mix of coconut and subtle aftershave, the kind of fragrance you just want to keep inhaling! And what scrub wouldn’t be complete with lots of gritty goodness to help wash away all those dead skin cells leaving you with non greasy, soft skin. It’s pasty texture makes it easy to spread over your skin and doesn’t thin out as you spread, literally covering you in creamy black goodness!
All of Tarabusi Creeks’ products are vegan friendly and made fresh
All of Tarabusi Creeks’ products are vegan friendly and made fresh so no product is more than a month old by the time it gets to the user, which in my case, I might add, didn’t take long at all. My Phoenix Charcoal Scrub cost $13.50 plus shipping which I thought was very reasonable since these are handmade and of such great quality.
My only complaint was the black tint to my bath afterwards! But not to worry, It washes out easily and either way, I’ve always wanted a black bath!
It still amazes me that your hands are full of black foam but when rinsed are squeaky clean!
Along with my Phoenix Charcoal Scrub, I received a bar of their Umbra Black Hand Soap which is a really nice addition to my already gothic guest bathroom! It still amazes me that your hands are full of black foam but when rinsed are squeaky clean! This soap, again, is vegan friendly, and costs $9.50 plus shipping.
Both of these products are suitable for oily and dry skin. They help remove toxins in the skin due to the charcoal ingredient. I’m now waiting patiently for a restock of the Enchanted Face Mask for anti-redness and irritated skin, since the Charcoal Scrub and Umbra Hand Soap were such a worthwhile purchase.
