As much as we love a clever makeup trick or two when it comes to hiding blemishes and uneven skin tones, there are some things even the sneakiest tactics can’t cover; namely rough, bumpy texture.

Whether it’s caused by blocked pores, dry skin or hormone-induced spots, a rough, uneven skin texture often shows though even the most carefully applied foundation, which is why a good skincare routine is key to keeping your complexion smooth and hydrated.

If you think you’ve tried everything and still not found the cure to your uneven texture, allow us to introduce you to The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Skin Clarifying Night Peel, £24 here, which has got users raving about its results.

The Body Shop's Himalayan Charcoal Skin Clarifying Night Peel is said to help improve textured skin

Being called “magic in a bottle” by happy shoppers, the charcoal-based overnight peel is said to work wonders on your skin, leaving it looking smoother, cleaner and softer after just a single use.

The Himalayan Charcoal Skin Clarifying Night Peel, £24 here, has been designed for combination and oily skin and works while you sleep to leave your skin looking and feeling brighter and more clarified with just a few drops.

It contains 98% natural ingredients, including bamboo charcoal from the Himalayan foothills and hibiscus flower extract, which is known to contain organic acids famous for their skin-exfoliating powers, adding up to a skincare saviour that’ll clear out clogged pores and get rid of texture-causing build up.

The peel works overnight to help smooth and cleanse your skin

To use it you just need to smooth it onto your skin in the evening and leave it on overnight while you sleep, then rinse it off in the morning. It can be used regularly to help control and balance your skin’s sebum levels – perfect for oily skin.

If you prefer something that you can use in a hurry, Ameliorate’s Resurfacing Facial Mask, £8.80 here (was £22 here), is currently reduced by 60% in LookFantastic’s major beauty sale and works its magic in just 10 minutes.

Shoppers said: “Great glow when using the product. I found this to be good on my sensitive skin too.” Another added: “Powerful but gentle exfoliating mask. Skim looks brighter after use.”

Shoppers have been singing its praises

Fans of the Himalayan Charcoal Skin Clarifying Night Peel, £24 here, have been raving about it over on The Body Shop’s website, saying: “Transforms skin overnight. My skin was brighter, firmer and had a more even tone next morning. This is an amazing little bottle of magic.”

Another wrote: “Pores halved! Dryness gone! Skin healed! This is a miracle!” whilst a third said: “Now it looks and feels so much better! After yrs of using endless other products, 1st time using this and the clay mask has solved the problem!”

Someone else added: “I've always suffered with texture on my forehead that I have never been able to get rid of. Since purchasing this 2 weeks ago I have seen a dramatic difference and the worst of the texture has gone.” Skincare that works while we sleep? That’s our favourite kind of low-maintenance product.
