FabIndia Charcoal Face Pack Review

Charcoal Face Pack

FabIndia Charcoal Face Pack Review
Hi Girls, today I will be reviewing Fabindia's Charcoal Face Pack, which has been recently added in to their skin care range.

 I was in the Fabindia store to buy some clothes and some body soaps for myself, then this newly launched Charcoal Face Pack grabbed my eyes. Firstly I was bit confused that should I buy it or not, coz I have never tried face packs from fabindia and secondly I was not sure about that activated charcoal thing, which was the main ingredient of that face pack. But some how may be their nice packaging and these two words "Activated charcoal" (which I have never tried before as my skin care ) finally convinced me to buy this.

What the product claims:
  • Charcoal is known for its ability to absorb impurities. This pack containing charcoal, uses multani mitti as its base. It absorbs dirt and oil from the pores, leaving skin cleaner and healthier.

How to use:
Avoiding the eye area, apply the pack and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and pat dry.

Product designing/ Packaging:
The Charcoal Face Pack comes in a round plastic jar like any other jar products from Fabindia and I already told you that I loved the packaging, they always make me convince to buy them. :) More over as the packaging is very sturdy and compact so you can easily carry it off in your purse or keep it in your wash room.

Color, Consistency and Fragrance of the product:
The face pack is dark grey in color and it's not too thick or runny, the best part is it dries really quick, may be within just 5 mint and very easy to wash off. It has strong but refreshing lemon oil scent.

My experience with FabIndia Charcoal Face Pack:
Now about the performance part...
On the day one I directly applied the Fabindia face pack on my face (un-washed skin) and soon after that I felt a prickling & stinging sensation on my face and I was really scared that I must have chose a wrong product but then the stinging feeling was gone (it hardly stayed for 1/2 mint), so I waited for few minutes to let it dry, also it dries on skin pretty quick, may be within 2 to 3 mints, which is a very good thing. Then I washed it off from my face with plain water & my skin felt really smooth and it looked healthy instantly. The face pack is also very easy to wash off coz it has a very smooth texture. After washing it off my skin looked very clean & fresh, the pack really pulled that "Instant Glow" thing for my face and I totally loved it. My skin was looking literally healthy and glowy! Though I use ayurvedic face pack mostly but sometimes I feel too lazy to use them, so for those lazy moment Fabindia Charcoal face pack is the ultimate weapon :). It leaves no clue of dirt on your skin and also works as a perfect rejuvenatory factor. The charcoal pack really stands up to its claims. One more good thing is this a very travel friendly product, you do not have to carry so many cleansing products while you are on a trip, this face pack will replace them all. For quick fresh ang glowing look this product is the best.

What I liked about the FabIndia Charcoal Face Pack:
  • Does what it claims.
  • Gives you perfect clean and clear face.
  • Hydrates the skin very well.
  • Gives instant healthy glow to skin.
  • Has a nice smell, very refreshing.
  • Perfect texture.
  • Dries out very quickly
  • Removes oiliness, which helps to control pimples
  • Good for all type of skin
  • Perfect face pack for summer and humid weather
  • Sturdy and travel friendly packaging
  • Not that expensive
  • Easily available
  What I don’t like about FabIndia Charcoal Face Pack:
  • It stings on my face
  • Contains Parabens
Will I repurchase: 
Yes, absolutely.
