How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Fingers or Brush

    Unlike other items out there, one does not need to have handy any special tool to be able to apply this cream. Tools can get misplaced and even break or malfunction. Besides, there is no need to make a product simply look more appealing or attractive than it really is with extra pieces of equipment to go along with it, supposedly increasing its value for money.

    With California Charcoal, you have the option of either using a brush or simply your fingers to apply this cream onto your face. Applying it over one’s face using one’s fingers is perfectly alright and, to be honest, the simplest and most effective, particularly over areas needing that extra bit of dexterity.

  2. How to Apply

    There is no set norm on how to go about applying this cream, but the manufacturers do have their recommendation on how they suggest you go about the application of this product over your face. You can begin by applying it first over your cheeks and jaw areas, then moving over to your chin and forehead. Please cover areas around your eyes and lips very carefully. Do also ensure that the layer applied is thick and not too thin otherwise it might quite easily just tear into shreds while being peeled off of the face.

  3. Allow to Dry

    Simply apply a thick layer of California charcoal to your entire face, leaving out areas densely covered with hair, and allow this layer of paste to then dry naturally over your face. How long it takes to dry over your skin depends on how much you apply and the type of skin you have. However, it should generally take no more than around 30 minutes to an hour to finish drying to a smooth, rubbery textured film over your skin. Then, gently peel it away to reveal your deepest, clean skin.


  • Secret Ingredients

    The secret behind the unique action of this cream is the formulation comprising of the active ingredients, namely, activated charcoal, Bentonite Clay, Vitamin C, Rosemary, and Eucalyptus extracts. This combination of ingredients is well suited to take care of all of your problems associated with blackheads, exfoliation and the unsightly appearance of pores.

  • Complexion Booster

    Unlike just merely acting as a traditional mask and simply cleaning your skin superficially, this product has been specially formulated to be much more effective. It is well equipped to quite easily get rid of micro-hairs and persistent fuzz across the face, thus, enhancing the brightness of your complexion.


  • Tube Twice as Large as Normal

    If you start using this cream and enjoy the experience, then you might be pleasantly surprised to know that you have much more than otherwise. The manufacturers have decided to double the amount of cream than what you would normally expect to see within such kind of a tube.

  • Complimentary Cleanser

    Once you decide to buy this cream, you might wonder if there’s anything else that can go along with it, such as a post-mask solution. That is certainly a reasonably valid thought, as once you do peel of the mask you might need something to fine-tune the surface of your skin that has just been exposed to a deep clean. Well, with this item, you don’t need to worry about buying anything additional to finish the final touches.

    With this product, you will receive a completely complementary tube of California Charcoal Skin Cleanser that you can feel free to use right after treating your face with the California Charcoal mask. This cleanser will help mop up any loose residual matter that has remained in nooks and crannies along the surface of your skin.

  • `double-offer

    For just a nominal fee added to the price of purchasing a single California Charcoal tube, you can have a second one sent with your shipment, if you so choose to avail of the double-offer.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Peel Upwards

    As such, it doesn’t quite matter how you peel off the mask once it has dried over your face. However, for best results, keeping the process as simple and painless as possible, it is advisable to peel off the mask in an upward direction every time you attempt at removing it off your face.

  2. Squeeze Out Enough

    Like with any face mask, for the mask to be most effective is it important that you use the right amount of cream that suits the exact purpose the mask is designed for. When it comes to California Charcoal, please make sure you take lavish amounts of cream onto your fingers, at least during the start of the process of masking your face.


  • Strictly Away From Children

    It is not recommended to ingest any kind of cream meant for external use, no matter how good it smells or what wonders it might be able to do for you from outside your body. As such, this product is poisonous for human consumption and is certainly not child-safe. If somehow consumed accidentally, please seek medical attention right away without any delay. This is why it is very important to keep this cream well out of the reach of children, especially if below the age of 6 years.

  • Avoid Thick Hair Growth

    Such masks have a rather tight fit on the face due the nature of their action and purpose. Therefore, it will be almost impossible to get the dried up cream off of any material that is stuck to it, including hair. Unfortunately, that means having to avoid areas of the face with hair growth that you feel would make it uncomfortable to peel off the mask after it sticks to your face.

    Ignoring this warning could prove unnecessarily painful, unless of course you have an exceptionally high tolerance for pain.

  • Keep Away From Eyes

    Please don’t let this product come dangerously close to your eyelids or eyes themselves. If it does, then please flush your eyes with copious amounts of cold ( as opposed to tepid ) water, and then immediately consult your physician.
