Fight Breakouts with T-Zone Charcoal & Bamboo Skincare

I’ve been really struggling with breakouts recently, it’s been really getting me down and quite honestly I have been willing to try anything to clear them up! I was kindly sent some products from the new T-Zone skincare range to see if they’d be any help. T-Zone are a very affordable brand who use natural ingredients like charcoal, bamboo, witch hazel, tea tree and grapefruitΒ to fight breakouts. I’ve been using 3 products from their Charcoal & Bamboo range for around a month to give them a fair shot..

Charcoal & Bamboo Self Heating Mask*

T-Zone affordable skincare for blemish prone skin

I was really intrigued when I saw these masks were self heating. In my mind a mask that heats up will open your pores and be able to cleanse out all the excess oil and dirt every more than a normal mask so I was very much looking forward to trying this. My mum, sister and I decided to use these for a pamper night the other week and we really enjoyed using them. The mask is dark grey and has a very thick consistency which I was taken a back by, you get a very generous amount in each sachet though. You apply this to a dry face with dry hands then when it’s full spread out over your face, apply water and massage for around a minute. This activates the self heating property. You then leave the mask for another minute or two before washing it off. My face felt so soft and clean after using this, it was such a great treat, I can’t wait to use more of these. These cost Β£4.99 for a pack of 4 masks and you could probably get two uses out of each sachet. I think these are great when you’re having a real problem skin day or just looking to give your skin a really deep clean.

Charcoal & Bamboo No Shine Papers*

I don’t tend to get oily due to my Sahara desert like skin so my sister’s been trying these out for me. You get 50 sheets for only Β£2.99 so they’re excellent value, they’re also really compact so great for popping in to your handbag or pocket. You dab the paper around your T-Zone and any other oily areas and the papers which are enriched with charcoal and bamboo soak up all the extra oil without ruining your makeup! My sister’s been so impressed with them and she thinks they make her makeup look flawless for much longer.

Charcoal & Bamboo Deep Cleansing Face Scrub*

T-Zone affordable skincare for blemish prone skin

I’m not normally a fan of face scrubs as they’re harsh and tend not to agree with my sensitive skin so I was very apprehensive about trying this. Unbelievably though it’s turned out to be my favourite product from the range! I absolutely adore how this smells! It’s so lovely and fresh. As you can see from the photo this scrub is grey in colour with little black specks. The black bits are actually little bits of charcoal so this scrub is free from those dreaded micro beads! It’s surprisingly gentle but at the same time throughly cleans your skin. I’ve been using this twice a week for the past few weeks and it hasn’t irritated my sensitive skin at all. It makes my face so soft and it looks really clean afterwards. I think I’ve found my new favourite face scrub! This costs only Β£2.99 and is well worth getting!

T-Zone affordable skincare for blemish prone skin

The whole T-Zone range is available at Superdrug both in store and online. It’s currently buy 1 get the 2nd half price so now’s the time to try out the range!

    The charcoal scrub sounds very interesting! I might just have to give the whole range a try πŸ™‚

    Need to include some more new stuff into my skincare so this is really useful! Great post, it’d mean a lot if you checked my blog out too x

    I’ve never tried anything from this brand before, even though I’ve seen it a few times. It’s quite affordable, so if I see anything from this line I’m gonna pick it up πŸ™‚

      You definitely should try and pick something up, the scrub is amazing, so gentle and so freshly scented!

    I used to use their spot gel but since I’m pretty clear now I don’t tend to need their products. But this range does look really nice πŸ™‚

  7. August 10, 2017 / 5:10 pm

    I have been loving T-Zone recently. I bought the cleansing scrub once I saw loads of bloggers receiving from the brand. I wanted to try out something new as nothing ever works for my skin. A self-heating mask has never done well for me in the past but I do want to try their other stuff.

    I’ve been seeing charcoal everywhere, and it sounds like a miracle worker! I hadn’t realized how well it would work in a scrub, either. Mocribeads are the WORST so I’d love to give that scrub a try!


    • August 14, 2017 / 3:06 pm

      The scrub is amazing, you should definitely try it ou!

    Oh this sounds brilliant x

  10. August 10, 2017 / 5:18 pm

    I’m absolutely loving products with charcoal in it at the moment! I’ve not tried skin care stuff but I’m using ecodenta tooth paste and it’s working amazingly πŸ’–πŸ΅

  11. August 10, 2017 / 5:20 pm

    I love charcoal products, I always find that they actually work! The scrub looks really good, I love a facial scrub!

      The face scrub is my favourite, I’ll definitely be stocking up when this tube is finished!

    I have to admit it’s ages since I’ve tried anything by T-Zone but when I was in Superdrug recently I was thinking about getting some of the charcoal face wipes, I think I shall go back for them.

    • August 14, 2017 / 3:30 pm

      A friend tried the face wipes and she really loved them so you should definitely go back and pick them up!

    I’ve never used T-Zone, I think I’ll give it a try when my current products run out. I love using charcoal based products so I’m keen to try these x

  15. August 10, 2017 / 5:33 pm

    I know all too well about break outs! I’ve actually never heard of them before but the products sound pretty good, esp the self heating quality. I might look into them!

    • August 14, 2017 / 3:33 pm

      The self heating masks are the best invention! I feel like they give such a deep clean!

    I’ve been working on my skincare routine as well, just went to target and got some face wash that I really liked 😊 These products sound amazing though, glad they’re working for you

  17. August 10, 2017 / 5:58 pm

    Would love this brand! not sure if I can get my hands on it since I’m in the US, The no shine papers would be a lifesaver on my oily skin!

    Interesting post. I haven’t tried this range before either but I’m very tempted by the self-heating masks after reading your review, thank you!

  19. August 10, 2017 / 6:34 pm

    Omg how is this so cheap?! Definitely going to have to look into it because I am always suffering either huge or small breakouts!

    Much love xx

  20. August 10, 2017 / 7:22 pm

    I never put anything on my face and I have heard quite some negative feedback about charcoal skincare product… but I am glad they are working for you and might give them a go in the end

  21. August 10, 2017 / 9:25 pm

    This sounds like something I need right now as my skin is not acting very well. Thank you for sharing! x

    These all sound so fab – I think I’m in need of a charcoal scrub soon! ☺️

  24. August 11, 2017 / 8:08 pm

    Think I might need to get myself some of those no shine papers! They sound great. So reasonably priced too.

  25. August 11, 2017 / 8:14 pm

    I haven’t tried anything from this brand before but I do love charcoal products! These all sound amazing especially that self-heating mask!

  26. August 11, 2017 / 8:19 pm

    How does the self heating thing work? Does it actually feel warm?

  27. August 11, 2017 / 8:25 pm

    I like the sound of the heating mask it sounds very interesting! ☺️

  28. August 11, 2017 / 8:45 pm

    I use the T Zone pore strips. I will definitely look out for the face scrub, this is something I need!

  29. August 11, 2017 / 8:52 pm

    I don’t know why but I’ve been so hesitant to try anything charcoal. I shouldn’t. I hear such great things about it but I really do think these reviews sold me. I’ve also never heard of self-heating masks before. They sound fabulous – like you don’t have have to pay spa prices anymore to be pampered.

    Nice reviews – short, sweet, and to the point.
    Loved it.

  30. August 11, 2017 / 8:56 pm

    I need a new scrub and I adore the idea of a charcoal one! I definitely need to check out T Zone x

    Oh these look amazing! I might have to get myself to Superdrug while they’re on offer x

  33. August 13, 2017 / 10:16 am

    I have been loving charcoal products, they really do work! I haven’t tried this brand yet, though πŸ™‚

  34. August 13, 2017 / 10:54 am

    OMG I was so excited to see this post, i’ve wanted to try this range for ages!

  35. August 13, 2017 / 10:55 am

    This whole range looks so good I really want to try it out. Especially those self heating masks! Sounds amazing. Clare xx

  36. August 13, 2017 / 11:47 am

    Seen so many bloggers raving about this! I really need to try it out! ✨

  37. August 13, 2017 / 8:12 pm

    I have never tried any of these products before but, I think I may have to after this post. They sound amazing! Your photography is amazing by the way! X

  38. August 13, 2017 / 8:19 pm

    My skin gets quite a few blackheads so I’d love to try some charcoal-based skincare and this range looks really reasonably priced. I’d love to try some of the charcoal-based teeth whitening stuff too!

  39. August 13, 2017 / 8:21 pm

    My skin right now is just a joke! Nothing I seem to try works so maybe this is the miracle I’ve been searching for! I shall give this a try! <3

    • August 14, 2017 / 3:36 pm

      I hope i works for you! Maybe check out Kiehls Blue Herbal Cleanser too, it’s amazing for breakouts!

  40. August 13, 2017 / 8:26 pm

    I’ve always wanted to try some kind of charcoal based product for my skin as It’s apparently really good! So I think I may try the scrub as the price is right for a trial πŸ™‚ thank for sharing!

    I get such an oily t zone throughout the day and I hate getting shiny especially when I am wearing makeup! So these products sound amazing! :0


  42. August 19, 2017 / 9:01 pm

    Ahh all these products sound so lovely!! Especially that self heating mask, they are so intriguing! My skin can get so horribly oily and clogged up aswell and charcoal based products are so fab for detoxing, I’m so getting myself some of these bits!
