Lacura Charcoal Skincare Review

The charcoal beauty obsession is literally taking over

So many brands are making activated charcoal products, did you read my post about it?

If you didn’t check it out first so you know what this one is all about


Lacura is a budget friendly beauty brand sold in my favourite supermarket Aldi

It offers amazing results for all ages, genders and skin types

The charcoal range is the newest to hit the shelves, that is if your lucky to grab it before it sells out

I didn’t manage to get what I wanted on my first trip, but second time round I found a newly stocked section waving at me as I walked down the aisle


Mud Mask

A 50ml pot set me back £5.99 which I was very happy to pay considering what I have spent on other brands

The Charcoal clearing mud mask is advertised to balance problem prone skin. Designed to reduce the appearance of imperfections and tighten pores

Made up of clay, coconut extract, bamboo extract and eucalyptus oil

The eucalyptus is a very fresh feeling on the face while wearing the mask

You don’t need much, it spreads very easily on the skin

I did apply a bit too much to each of my cheeks as the mud didn’t dry out like the rest of my face after 10 minutes of application

You can feel when the mask is ready to be removed as it tightens and drys

After washing off, using just warm water, I instantly noticed the smoothness of my skin and it felt fresh

Micellar Water

I love micellar water generally as this is what I use to take my make up off each day

To find the Lacura range with charcoal in as well just sounded amazing as I am a fan of charcoal for beauty cleansing. Plus it only cost £1.99

Advertised to purify and detox as well as leaving the skin feeling fresh

It certainly did just that

Fantastic removal of make up including black liquid eye liner and mascara

Effortless too, I simply put a bit on a cotton pad and wiped. The liquid is more translucent on the pad than in the bottle

I was quite gentle around my eye area as unsure how it would be, but it is absolutely fine and not at all irritating

There is an added fresh scent to the water too, I want to say rose but it has a fruity undertone. Either way smells nice


Facial Wipes

I tend to use facial wipes when I am traveling, rather than day to day

£1.49 for a pack of 25 wipes, pretty good value I think

The wipes are black… Im not sure what I expected but was a bit surprised to see them

I noticed after that it does say black wipes on the front of the packet

They have a lovely scent to them and I certainly felt like I had a deep cleanse rather than just using a wipe

The removal of my eye liner and mascara again seemed effortless, I’m guessing this is where the fast absorbing charcoal comes into play and easily extracts the make up from your face

I did find my face felt quite dry after using them, the witch hazel in the wipes could be why. So not a recommended everyday wipe but certainly if you get a oily break out


I can not pick any fault with any of these three products, and I have already been and bought another 2 bottles of the micellar water. Just incase they get sold out again

Let me know whether you managed to try any of the Lacura charcoal range and what you thought? Did you buy anymore of any of them?

    I love Lacura products, the quality is really good at very cheap prices. I have recently started using the Charcoal toner and love the smell. It is very effective and leaves my skin feeling really nice. I recommend their serum too.

    Thank you for your review. I bought the Micellar Water and also find it great for removing make-up at the end of the day.

    The Lacura range is actually great I love their oatmeal body moisturiser! Lots of their products are also cruelty free which is really important to me
