I have tried creams upon creams and own enough face masks to practically start my own shop, so of course… I ended up buying something new like this peel off black mask from Kailijumei (same company as my previous post Flower Power).
It is used to clean and purify the pores, mostly advised around the forehead, nose and chin areas (but if you’re brave and okay with the slight sting of peeling it off, go crazy and apply everywhere!)
It was a great mask, but like mentioned above, I would suggest only applying to those core areas. It really is just like you see the videos and photos on Instagram and Facebook, you apply, leave on for 30 minutes, and then slowly peel off (preferably in an upwards motion towards your forehead). The impurities literally peel out of your pores. A few tips that I can suggest after using and experimenting with the mask a couple of times are:
Avoid the hairline. AT ALL COSTS. No guys, seriously. Unless you want a facial hair wax, avoid the eyebrows, and the hairline.
But, if you do accidentally get it in ur hair (no judgement… we’ve all been there), apply some makeup remover or toner to a cotton pad and gently wipe off the mask from unwanted areas.
Second tip, it stains clothing and furniture, so applying while wearing your favourite blouse is a no go.
And lastly, pull the mask off slowly after it has FULLY dried, peeling it off like a wax strip isn’t going to give it the chance to pull out all the dirt and whiteheads on your skin and may even leave your skin feeling sore and red.
I am not a beauty expert, this is all from personal experience and testing the product out, overall it is a fantastic mask, does what it says on the tin sort of product, but may leave your skin feeling dry, so moisturise ladies and gents!
I didn’t manage to take any pictures of me with the mask on but I got lovely shots of my sister wearing it. So for blogging purposes, enjoy!
