But the name alone doesn’t totally divulge what the odd-looking product actually is: A balloon you literally “pop”—there’s a pick provided—to reveal the enclosed black charcoal “jelly ball,” which you then use, and reuse, to clean your face.

So why the kind of out-there design? The company says it’s because the formula—a mix of antibacterial black bamboo charcoal, vitamin-rich Tamarindus Indica seed gum and soothing Hinoki oil—is so concentrated and this vehicle helps maximize all the ingredients.

Either way, the product is fun to use and gives that deep-down “detoxifying” clean that doesn’t make even super sensitive skin types red or irritated.
