My take on the product:
I have read a lot about charcoal as an active ingredients in beauty or skin care products. The reason why charcoal is considered a winner to obtain perfect clear skin is its ability to absorb toxins, impurities and many other harmful substances from skin and its a natural exfoliant too. 

The Aster Luxury Charcoal Soap came double- sealed in transparent cling film like all the other soaps with labels on either sides of the packaging. The label have complete detail about the product. is a deep hued soap in black. 
The natural activated charcoal content in this Charcoal soap makes it look like a beautiful black diamond :) I mean, we all love soaps that are in lovely pink, green, white, yellow colors..but did you ever expect a soap in black color can look so gorgeous. Truly I loved its color that makes it stand out among all products in its line. The soap bar is very soft in texture and has the brand logo imprinted on it. 
Though I already had high expectations from its performance; but honestly, I hardly expected of any pleasant fragrance in the soap. But to my sheer surprise, this Charcoal soap is loaded with such stimulating fragrance that I could not help myself smelling it again n again. 

The soap, despite its not-so-rich lather, draws out the dirt n oils that are blocking the pores and cleanses the skin thoroughly. Prolonged use of charcoal soap is claimed to reduce acne, though I am unable to judge it as I have no acne problem. Unlike normal chemical based soaps that leave a residue on the skin which stops the pores to breathe properly, the charcoal soap promises not to leave any residue behind. So that the pores may breathe and stay naturally moisturized all the day long. 

The people battling with bacteria related skin issues can use this soap for great relief because of its anti-fungal, anti bacterial properties.

Final Words:

It maintains the level of body’s natural moisturizers and thereby improves skin elasticity. The super absorbency, detox + exfoliate property and invigorating smell of Aster Luxury charcoal soap is enough to have you all grab this complete beauty treatment to your skin.
