Here’s how the charcoal facial scrub works:

  • Activated charcoal draws impurities, dirt & excess oil out of the skin, giving the pores a gentle deep cleanse.
  • Kaolin clay also draws out toxins from the skin; plus it stimulates circulation & regulates sebum (skin oil) production, to prevent dryness.
  • Sugar has a gentle exfoliating action.
  • Coconut powder soothes the skin & locks in moisture.
  • Lemongrass is antibacterial & also has skin-toning astringent properties.
  • Chamomile is anti-inflammatory & soothing.
  • Apricot oil feeds the skin with nourishing vitamin A, E & GLA (omega-6 fatty acid); it also tones & firms the skin.

Did You Know? Activated charcoal can absorb over 500 times its weight in impurities! No wonder it makes such an effective cleanser.


  • Using a spoon, scoop out a little of the scrub & apply to wet skin.
  • Using gentle circular motions, lightly massage into your face & neck.
  • Rinse & pat dry. Follow with a natural toner for best results.

Please Note: Because this scrub contains activated charcoal powder, it may take a little more effort to wash off. If necessary, use a small amount of cleanser or olive oil on a cotton wool pad to help remove the scrub; it is well worth the extra effort!

I bought this for my son and the Vitamin C scrub for myself. Both have a very rough texture like large sugar granules. I blended them in the high speed blender and the product was still very abrasive for a facial product. Maybe if your skin is like leather and really tough...or you use it on you back or legs. I don't understand why people say they like this. I really wanted to like these, I bought 4 of their products based on great reviews. Not again.

Love this, it leaves my skin feeling so smooth!
08/05/2021, By Jana
I love it, I won't recommend it for use more than once a week or so. It's quite harsh. But I always use it after a face mask, and it leaves my skin SO smooth.
07/05/2021, By Susie
bought this for teenagers battling with skin & this helps :)

Great product
25/09/2020, By Kalee
Really enjoying this product. It's a great scrub that isn't too harsh, it smells amazing and is definitely helping to clear my skin.
25/09/2020, By Muriel
Best facial scrub I have ever used. It cleared up parts of my face I have been struggling with for years. Will be buying this again and again and again.
10/06/2020, By Leen
Love this brand. The scrub worked wonders (especially with the winter that tends to dry out my face); a little goes a long way
24/05/2020, By First born
Skin is clearing up
21/05/2020, By Lynn
Still early stages of using it, but love the fragrance. Did not think it would be as coarse as it is.
15/05/2020, By Janine
not for me
12/05/2020, By L
Not what I expected and so disappointed. I know sugar is listed on the ingredients, but I expected something finer and a bit creamier. This just feels like I am rubbing plain sugar on my face. The ingredients seem to separate when I am using it too, so you can see the plain white sugar when you scrub, even though it has charcoal in it. I don’t like the way it feels; quite abrasive. I have used Victorian Garden scrubs before and they were so creamy, but still effective and I think I will go back to those.
11/05/2020, By Bernice
Absolutely love this. Great exfoliater. A little goes a long way. I've stopped trying other scrubs, this is my favourite go-to!!
07/05/2020, By Cortney
Love the HG range!
05/05/2020, By Nicole
This product is incredible, my skin is so smooth and feels full of energy. It is not difficult to remove or a messy job but quick and easy. The massage can be a bit rough but it is for a good result. Love the smell, the texture and I cannot wait for the great results that follows.
01/05/2020, By Yolandi
Amazing product! Will definitely be buying this again and again!
08/04/2020, By Simone
Good course scrub. I use it on my face and body.
25/03/2020, By Liz
I absolutely love the scrub. I use on my face and body. I definitely saw a big difference in my skin texture and helps with my black heads and large pores. And the most amazing this is it smells amazing! Absolutely love it and will order over and over again!
17/03/2020, By Mpho
Great product, have only used it twice and my blemish and pimples are already vanishing. Perfect on my skin. Higly recommend the product.
21/01/2020, By Becks
Product is far too abrasive for my face, but it works. I only applied it twice and some of the blemishes/pimples under my chin went away. I'll continue using it regardless maybe once a week for face and mostly for the body. Expected a much finer product.
10/01/2020, By Helper
Top one
31/10/2019, By Britt
A wonderful product that leaves my skin feeling clean and soft!
11/10/2019, By Celina
A good scrub. i like products that you can feel are doing the work. Leaves my face fresh and thoroughly clean. THUMS UP
09/10/2019, By Sue
I love this product! My skin has cleared and feels so smooth, what a difference! Would highly recommend.
13/09/2019, By Ruth
Very coarse. Feels like its getting the job done. Highly recommended.
04/09/2019, By TJ
This is my favourite product I ordered. Use on a dry face otherwise product dissolves very quickly.
14/08/2019, By Megan
Product is awesome! Suitable for sensitive skin.
06/08/2019, By Therita
All my facial products are natural now, but I struggled a bit with the odd pimple / bumps on my face at times. This takes care of it and leaves my skin feeling super soft! I use the scrub on my face and then leave it on for 10-15 minutes.... I love this facial scrub!!
18/07/2019, By D
Great product. Cleared up my skin within a week.
03/07/2019, By Tayla
Served me well when my skin was congested and oily. A bit of an abrasive physical exfoliator, so use your ring and pinkie finger to massage your face to avoid being too rough (I actually think it would make a great back and body scrub) The botanical oils leaves your face feeling smooth and hydrated.
15/06/2019, By Mich
My son is using it and it’s doing wonders for his skin. He asked me to buy more.
01/06/2019, By Ronelle
This product is too course for the face and neck, but great for the body. It smells nice. It can be messy so use in the bath or shower. A little goes a long way!
24/05/2019, By juliet
The kelp face scrub which I love was out of stock so I tried this one instead. Just as great, thick and scrubby and lasts for ages!
12/04/2019, By Ambel
I use this as a full body scrub as the granules are quite large and not so suited for regular use on the face. However, it definitely pulled all of the dirt and blemishes out of my skin and within a week my blemishes cleared up. It has an amazing fragrance and contains really natural ingredients. My skin is much smoother!
06/04/2019, By Chane
Excellent product!!
16/03/2019, By Kgauhelo
Fantastic facial scrub for any skin type! My skin feels alive after every application.
05/12/2018, By Dian
A bit rough on the skin for the first two washes but after that it feels great
15/11/2018, By Marlouw
Perfect product! My skin feels super soft and revitalized afterwards. This is one of my favourites!
12/10/2018, By Juwairiya
I ordered this one but was given another,same thing I suppose but in a different tub and I dint get my makes my skin feel soft awesome product ,love the smell it's amazing
15/09/2018, By Nadia
Although this scrub helps with big spots / blemishes on my skin, it is very big granules and doesn't really help with the finer dry skin. I have had to use this one, but then another finer scrub afterwards to help with the smaller skin issues. Also didn't really assist with my acne problem, and skin is very red for a while after using this scrub. Very abrasive.
30/08/2018, By Lee-Anne
All the things I need: vegan ✅ natural ✅ cruelty free ✅ palm oil free ✅
I feel and look like I have a new face after every use. I just love it
19/08/2018, By Tania
This is one of my favourite scrubs. I have very sensitive skin so use it occasionally on my face and mostly as an all over body scrub. I use it in the shower as it makes quite a mess and I love how my skin feels afterwards.
04/06/2018, By Precious
This is a fantastic scrub which leaves my skin feeling smooth. I am on my 2nd purchase. My only problem is that I have never seen the spoon which is promised that the product comes with.... even on my 1st purchase.
13/05/2018, By Melissa
This is an amazing scrub. It works wonders for my oily skin, without drying it. And it's gentle enough to use daily.
08/05/2018, By Kerryn
I received this as a birthday present from a wonderful friend and I absolutely love it. On the first wash it stung a little (hence the 4/5) but it left my skin looking bright and feeling soft. After the second use it didn't sting at all and my skin looked glowing. Really happy with this product and will definitely try other gorgeous products in the range.
28/04/2018, By Eloise
Fantastic natural product!! I use it twice a week and it leaves my skin feeling soft and really glowing. It is most definitely the best facial scrub I have ever used.
22/01/2018, By Shelley
I am prone to breakouts and this product didn't irritate my skin at all. I use it twice a week and it always leaves my skin feeling clean and extra moisturized. Will totally recommend it.
13/01/2018, By JenMIn
This is my favourite facial scrub. I find it sufficiently oily that it isn't too abrasive, and I love using it. Would highly recommend.
14/09/2017, By Nataliya
Felt like a bit of a useless buy. Sugar granules texture is a bit too abrasive and NOT GREAT for the face exfoliation, but - not bad to use it on your body. Oh and - it does NOT come with a spoon.
11/09/2017, By Thelma
Although I love the smell and the moisturizing effect of the scrub; it is much too abrasive. And I have a tough skin. Abrasive exfoliators can actually alter the barrier function of the skin which by default cause photosensitivity. And who wants to age faster? I now instead use it on my elbows.
10/09/2017, By Kylie
I really enjoyed this product. It left my skin so smooth and moisturised!
07/08/2017, By Nikki
I have used this twice now and my skin has never felt so good. My skin feels clean, and so smooth.
17/07/2017, By Kelly
Have used this for a week now and am in LOVE, my skin feels so smooth.
We live in a very dusty area so I am looking forward to seeing the long term results, will keep you posted!
11/07/2017, By Shandré
this product is so amazing!! pretty good for clogged pores & blackheads
28/05/2017, By Pat
Love this product. Skin feels amazing after! Also great value for money as it is a BIG tub!
08/10/2016, By Andrea Sydney
Very happy with this product. Face feels amazing and looks clearer too!
18/08/2016, By Lisa
Received this as a free sample, and love it! Makes my skin feel so smooth :)
17/08/2016, By Erica
This is a beautifully smelling scrub and the principle of using activated charcoal is great, however the texture is very coarse and I find it scratchy. I once read somewhere - not sure how true it is - that coarse scrubs can cause pores to stretch. A finer texture would make this the ideal product!
11/07/2016, By Antoinette
Thanks for the free sample! What a win. Such a treat. Face feels amazing after using this.
16/05/2016, By Megan
I bought this as a treat for myself one month. I haven found it too harsh on my skin and it doesn dry it out at all. Lovely to use a few times a week after a hard workout. A little goes a long way as well.
23/02/2016, By Suzanne
I love that they use sugar instead of plastic beads, its good for the environment and if some gets in your mouth it tastes fine.
17/02/2016, By Adrienne
This is a great Exfoliater. Its fairly course for a facial scrub, but leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean. The jar is also really big so Ive been using it on my face and body.
17/02/2016, By Jacqui
I gave this as a gift and my friend visited me today . I can see the difference on her skin. Her skin texture looks even and glowing. Not the dull skin tone as usual, I am impressed with this product.
30/12/2015, By Antonia
This product makes my skin so soft after use and reduced the amount of pimples significantly. I used this at the same time as the Hey gorgeous mineral mud face and body mask and they work well together. My skin as improved immensely.
26/11/2015, By Claire
This product leaves your skin feeling soft and suple. It is quite an abrasive exfoliator but it gets the job done. I would recommend it as a weekly application.
03/11/2015, By Karien
Smells amazing but its a bit messy not easy to wash off if you have light skin. Got a fright the first time just have to use a cloth and lots of soap to get it off
21/08/2015, By Tess
I found the product a little too coarse for a facial product. I will end up using it as a body scrub.
24/06/2015, By Annlerie
This product is absolutely lovely - fresh, beautiful fragrance and leaves my skin feeling soft and very clean. Can still feel the difference days afterwards. I will definitely buy this again.
04/06/2015, By Julia
I love the smell, the texture and the colour! This scrub feels really good on my skin, and leaves my face feeling clean and fresh.
25/05/2015, By Brodie
This really is a lovely exfoliating scrub. I haven gone back to using nay of my other exfoliators since buying this.
