Have you used charcoal on your skin and found it never washes off?

     Nope, I have never used charcoal on my skin. Is that supposed to be some kind of cleansing regimen?

    Yes.  It is supposed to deeply cleanse your skin.  I thought it odd as well to rub something already dirty on your skin.  I guess the trick is to rub coals on yourself and frantically try to get it off.
    I learned to do this trick as a kid.  I should not have spent money on it.

    Not one of my wiser moves.
    Thanks Randy D!

      Meh, so you came out a little darker than you usually are, big deal. You still have that great smile that turns all the boys’ heads around, don’t you?

      Will you be busy Friday night?  We should go out.

    I have used charcoal infused bath soap, bar soap and even toothpaste.  I have always been able to rinse it off. I personally do not see the big deal but a couple of my kids swear by them. 

    I do not think you are supposed to use plain charcoal,  lol.

    I am the nerd who bought a whole tub of it for a big chunk of change.
    Big mistake.
    I couldn't get it off for days.  
    You're right though.  Many people swear by it.  I guess mine was a little too much.  I bought one of those charcoal toothbrushes at the dollar store just to try it out.
    Don about died. 
    I didn't see any difference in my teeth.  Don tossed his in the trash.
    Thanks my2cents!

    Charcoal is for the barbecue - not my face.

    Exactly!
    Thanks for the advice.  A little late in my case, but good for others.
    Thanks SpunkySenior!

    I spilt a bit of lab-grade charcoal powder on a table at school once. I never was able to get it off. It does wash from my hands, though. Reluctantly.

    I bought a whole tub of it and used it once.  The key word is once.  The tub is still full.  It took days to come off.  I don't recommend anyone using it unless you talk to a dermatologist first.

    Indeed.  With olive oil to help remove the charcoal.  Bubbles help, too.

     That wasn't me!  I'm sure!!  My tub isn't that deep and my tile isn't so clean. My ring was black!  One would think I rubbed all my indigenous qualities right off me.

    Thanks Element!

    I just caught it.  Noooo.  Silly!!  Not the sort of tub I am envisioning in my other reply.  A BIG BLACK TUB You buy from those swanky, facial-place, thingys, boo-bop places!

    Fortunately, my skin is good, so I don't need to do a lot to keep it that way.
