MY THOUGHTS ON CHARCOAL PEEL OFF MASKS

Charcoal peel off masks have been around for a while but it never attained celebrity status until beauty bloggers and youtubers began raving endlessly about the wonders of charcoal peel off masks. I am most definitely late to the bandwagon but its better late than never, right?.

The rave for charcoal peel off masks were so much that I felt the peel off mask worked like black magic. I was eager to try it out, but I never did. Partly because there were so many charcoal peel off masks on the web that it was so difficult picking one and because of how black it looked plus how painful YouTube tutorials made the peel off process look. Due to this, I nicknamed it the devil skincare( dodges arrows and bullets from mask lovers). But the title devil skincare title aptly described its look, black!. However I said to myself, if it has to look all black and scary to take away my skin impurities, make my face feels smoother, looks fresher and radiates more beauty, then count me in.

REVIEWING THE SHILLS BLACK PURIFYING CHARCOAL PEEL OFF MASKS

PACKAGING: The packaging was pretty decent and very much basic. It came in a black tube with a flip cover and a little hole for dispensing.

QUANTITY: The quantity wasn’t so much. I really want to say I am disappointed but for the price, It is fair.

INSTRUCTIONS: Apply the mask unto clean dry skin, avoid eyebrow, eyes and lips. Peel off after 20-30 minutes. For better results, apply toner to tighten and cleanse the pores thoroughly.

My charcoal peel off mask experience.

I applied the mask with my hands but would advice you use a synthetic foundation brush. I Couldn’t risk using my zaron brush and I didn’t have a synthetic brush at hand. using a brush would make the coverage more even.

I touched the bridge of my nose before the mask dried. so the mask came off at that spot.

I let the mask sit for about 22 minutes before ripping it out( in my mind). I wish it was that simply, but it hurt while peeling off and I had irritations under my eyes after peeling off.

The peel off process was not as painful as YouTube beauty gurus made it look like. Afterwards, I applied my rosewater toner and the irritations clear in less than 3 minutes after peel off. If your under eye area is sensitive, then avoid applying the product there or get a toner like the one I used, HERE.

Final thoughts

DID IT WORK? The mask was as described, it removed impurities, I could see a lot of dirt after i peeled it off. However, it didn’t do a great job at removing black heads. The mask made my face really soft, i felt like a baby touching my skin.

WHAT I LOVED MOST: The mask was not drying. I have used different masks and they were all very drying, even this homemade lightening mask. But the Shills black peel off mask did not dry my face out. The second thing i loved was the smell. It was pleasing and not harsh or offensive. The third thing I loved about this product was the fact that it actually worked!

WOULD I REPURCHASE: I already placed an order for another! I am really impressed with the product and for such a budget friendly price, I am sold. I quickly repurchased before it’s goes out of stock. You can get yours HERE.

RATE IT: I would rate the mask a 7/10

    Hi Gift
    I haven’t tried one, I look to try out some after reading your review. Taking care of my skin is top on my list this year just that I am too scared to try out any skincare products. I think I am bending towards organic products. Good review by the way!

      Hello Adedamola, I understand your plight. The fear of using a bad skincare product is the beginning of wisdom.. Lol. But hey if you let that fear get the best of you, a lot of good products would pass you by as well.
      organic skincare is definitely something I plan to invest in this year and I hope I find the ones owned by Nigerian brands to enable me try them out and review as my own way of supporting the made in Nigeria movement.
      Thanks for visiting.

    I tried a charcoal peel off mask too and it didn’t leave my skin smooth. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing again but I am glad you had a nice experience.

      Hey Chika, well it might be the brand you used that’s not good or maybe your skin just doesn’t agree with it. Then again, we all have different skin types and what works for one probably might not work for the other.
      I am glad you loved the post
