Asda Activated Charcoal Facial Scrub Review

What I find difficult with having sensitive skin is finding the right beauty products which I can use on my face without causing an allergic reaction or a breakout of spots.
When I was in my 20s I thought that the more products I had, the better my skin would be. I loved and used anything and everything (this was before I switched to cruelty free beauty). I found out over the years that all of these products I was using was making my skin worse (and a combination of consuming too much dairy products although this hasn't been medically proven). Since I've hit 30 what has worked for me is less products equals better results. It's about the quality rather than the quantity of products.I only use skin care products that are fragrance free, cruelty free or natural. My skin has never looked and felt better.
I've ditched facemasks and switched them for light facial scrubs as i find these work better for my skin type
Everyone's skin type is different so what works for me, might not work for you. But it might help if you are the same skin type as me. Mine is oily to combination. The product which I'm reviewing today is the Asda's Activated Charcoal Facial Scrub and this product works very well for me. I've been using it for about 3 months about once a week in my skin care routine.

All of Asda's own brand of skincare, shampoo and conditioner are all cruelty free. It's the only store that I haven't filmed my cruelty free beauty shopping series (click here to be directed to the video playlist link) Would you like me to make this video? let me know in the comments below.
I think Asda do an amazing range of products which are great value for money. I'm not being sponsored to say this or post this blog at all. I just really love Asda. I brought the Charcoal scrub with my own money. It's a bargain for £1.50 and very affordable.
The problem with my skin type is that I have excess oil on my T-zone (nose and chin). I have blackheads and pores which I can't get rid of no matter how hard I try. I've accepted that this is apart of me. But to maintain my pores and black heads I try to have a  good skincare routine. I've been using Asda's charcoal facial scrub which gently exfoliates and minimises the look of pores. It makes my skin feel smooth and look brighter too. The formula applies smoothly and for the best results I find that you have to use your finger tips and apply the product using light circular motions.

The formula of the scrub contains rice clay particles which acts as a exfoliant. It's gentle on the skin and it's better for the environment too (I'm glad microbeads have been banned since last year).
The scrub is a dark charcoal colour which is great for application as you can see where you've applied the product although the downside to it is that if you don't wash it all off is that it will ruin your towels when you pat your face dry.

In the Charcoal range there is also a gel wash and facemask. Has anyone tried these before? Let me know in the comments below.
