Pore cleansing rituals are what I am all about at the moment. Mine are large and charge and sometimes showcase the loveliest of breakouts. Anything to tame these wild beasts piques my interest. Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding touts to do just that, and came in my Sephora SoKo to Tokyo skin care set. Black and white charcoals and kaolin clay deeply cleans, moisturizes and fends off excess oils.
The pudding feels like a cold thick custard on the fingertips and spreads on the face evenly. It never crusted or crumbled as it dried like some clay masks tend to do. After 20 minutes I washed it off and my skin felt smooth, but slightly itchy and a touch dry, though tight. I slathered on some moisturizer and it made it right as rain.
My jar is 0.84 ounces and holds probably 4 or 5 applications. A 2.8 ounce container is $38.00 on Sephora's website.
It provided a nice face mask experience but I felt it wasn't any more or less effective than the much cheaper Aztec Indian Facial clay mixed with vinegar.
