    Pai's New Carbon Star Night Oil Is A Real Saviour For Acne-Prone Skin – Here's All You Need To Know About It

    I predict this clarifying skin treatment will be an immediate bestseller!

    If there are two ingredients my uber-sensitive and acne-prone skin absolutely adores, it would be black cumin seed oil and charcoal. So you can only imagine my excitement when I saw that luxe skincare brand Pai were releasing a brand new face oil featuring these *exact* ingredients!

    Pai's well thought-out skincare products tend to reach the top of every bestselling beauty list (see: their iconic Rosehip Bioregenerate oil that's purchased on average once every three minutes)! So something tells me their new Carbon Star overnight clarifying treatment will reach similar cult-status levels.

    The Carbon Star oil has a ton of benefits for blemish-prone skin – including (but not limited to) calming breakouts, balancing the skin's natural oils, drawing out impurities, and evening out skin tone and texture.

    While moisturising your already-oily skin with a face oil might seem pretty counterintuitive, it makes a lot more sense than you'd think! The black cumin seed oil kills acne-causing bacteria, while the charcoal actually absorbs any excess oil and sweat, preventing them from clogging your pores.

    ✨ The hero ingredients ✨

    Organic black cumin seed oil is best known for its antibacterial properties which help to calm the skin when it's at its most sensitive and breakout-prone.

    And the vegetable charcoal works to absorb toxins, impurities, and excess oil from the skin, while also gently exfoliating dead skin cells to reveal the glowing base beneath.

    The powerful lil' oil is also infused with organic andiroba, copai ba, and an acai oil complex.

    If you needed *another* reason to be impressed, the certified COSMOS organic formula is vegan, cruelty free, and unscented!

    The Carbon Star clarifying treatment is best used as the final step in your skincare routine (after you've cleansed your face and applied your favourite serums). The lightweight formula will nourish and rebalance your skin while you sleep, so you'll wake up to clearer, less oily, and more even-looking skin!
