After reading the product description for this, I decided to give it a try. Apparently, the activated charcoal it contains has the power to draw out toxins, impurities, and pollutants. Sounded good to me! After a few weeks, I can't say that I noticed that my skin looked any better, but then I'm not quite sure what detoxified skin is supposed to look like (and I wasn't really expecting any miracles - after all, the product description didn't promise that my skin would glow or have a more youthful appearance). Maybe I just like the idea of a shower gel having the capability of ridding my skin of evil impurities. $15 isn't too steep, and I don't use this every day; I switch it out with other bath products. This shower gel is supposed to give my skin "a cool, tingly sensation", but I'm going to have to disagree with that. This shower gel has a natural fragrance that not everyone will enjoy. To me, it doesn't really smell good or bad, just natural. I don't mind it at all, and I like that it doesn't smell like perfume. The product contains sage oil, lemon extract, rosemary leaf extract, eucalyptus oil, hydrolyzed collagen, activated charcoal, and caramel (yes, really).
