Pollution, traffic exhaust, smoke, and other environmental toxins can put stress on your Skin and cause clogged pores, increase the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots, as well as loss of elasticity - so it's nice to know that there is a line to help with all of these concerns:
Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal - with products that are perfectly suited for modern city dwellers concerned about grime and pollutants and are looking for a gentle way to “detox” their skin and get rid of that gritty, dusty film that makes you want to wash your face several times a day.
The formulas are fueled by bamboo Charcoal which has been used for medicinal and purification purposes for thousands of years and they deliver the instant gratification of cleaner, glowing skin by effectively cleansing daily pollution, toxins and dirt - the collection includes:
Sonic System City Block Purifying Cleansing Brush Head - $32 -with two types of bristles that allow for targeted, deep cleaning: soft, light charcoal bristles cleanse larger areas like the cheeks; and firm, dark charcoal bristles in this unique tilted head, target areas prone to buildup (forehead, chin, nose), and help to unclog pores by removing dirt and excess oil thoroughly. This sonic brush head helps detoxify skin by removing oil, pollutants, and dirt more effectively than washing by hand, thanks to sonic technology which loosens trapped impurities with high-speed vibrations. What you'll really appreciate is that the brush can be used with your already existing Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush - if you don't have one already though it will set you back $141 for the brush and system but you can feel confident that when they release new brush heads and attachments they will be compatible with the same system!

Use it with your Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush or on its own.
