An exfoliating charcoal serum to gently buff, detox and purify congested skin for a clearer, smoother complexion. Ideal for most skin types tackling blackheads, acne, and underlying skin congestion to draw out impurities, smooth rough skin and polish away pore-clogging debris.

Transform congested, rough skin with the detoxifying, antibacterial and anti-acne power of charcoal. The Detoxifying Exfoliating Charcoal Serum exfoliates skin and draws out lumps under the surface to detoxify and dry out impurities.

What skin type is it best for?

Normal, dry, oily or acne-prone all benefit from regular application of this water-based exfoliating serum. Sensitive skin will require less frequent use.

The internal glass does differ from bottle to bottle, so you will find that each of your Skin Treats will sit a little differently. This with the combination of different consistencies (Gel V Oil) your product should sit just at the top of the blue esmi circle, anything over this is a nice little bonus - yay!

Detoxifies by gently drawing out impurities. Smooths rough, bumpy looking skin. Clears away dead cells for brighter skin. Targets clogged pores below the surface.

Skin Type

Suitable for most skin types. A suitable addition for concerns of congestion, acne, breakouts, oil, dullness, ageing. Best avoided if sensitive (repairing the skin first).

How to use

How to

Using the dropper, drip a pearl size amount onto your charcoal brush or fingers and massage into freshly cleansed skin, avoiding the under eye area. When using AHA, you may feel a mild to intense tingling sensation but don't worry it's a normal skin response. You may also feel no tingling at all - not to worry, the AHAs are still working just as hard. Leave for 5-10 minutes before wetting the charcoal brush or fingers and massage around the face to remove any softened dead skin cells before washing off.

The charcoal is a detoxifying ingredient and can draw impurities out of the skin - continue to use after impurities have emerged.

It's important to use a gentle cleanser with your skin treats and to protect your skin daily with a sunscreen.

How Often

Using the Charcoal Serum for the first time?: If you are introducing the Charcoal Serum alongside other esmi Skin Treats, we suggest that you start integrating them into your daily skincare regime first for 1-2 weeks before adding the Charcoal Serum. When introducing the Charcoal Serum to your skincare routine, apply 1-2 times a week after cleansing.

Frequency: It is suggested to use the Charcoal serum 2 times a week, however, can be used up to 5 consecutive nights. Use less frequently if you have sensitive skin. If unsure, please message us on chat or send us an email at skin@esmiskin.com we would LOVE to help you.
