What the brand says: The Luminizing Black Mask visibly minimizes the appearance of pores, absorbs excess oil, and gently exfoliates for a bright, fresh-faced appearance. Rich in antiaging vitamin C and antioxidants, this formula visibly reduces hyperpigmentation, minimizes large pores, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and combats excess oil while lifting away clogging impurities for radiant skin.
Packaging: The mask comes in a shiny black tube with screw cap and is travel friendly.
Texture:The mask feels and looks like tar- shiny black thick gel but spreads easily on the skin and dries to a shiny peel-off film.
How I use and staying power: This particular mask is all over instagram and facebook since long and i wanted to get this anyhow; and i finally managed to get this from Sephora store.
To use, apply the mask evenly on skin making sure you don’t apply it on the side locks and eyebrows. Let it stay for 15-20 minutes and gently peel it off. Wipe off any remaining mask using wet sponge or wash cloth and follow with a hydrating moisturizer.
You must have read in the reviews or on Instagram posts that peeling this off causes pain. Did I feel the pain? Well, I would say I did but it was bearable. The pain was felt only in the areas around my cheeks where I have facial hair, if you have a lot of facial hair, peeling this mask could be a bit more painful. The mask after removal contained all the whiteheads and some of the facial hair stuck on it! I had tiny white heads around the lips, eyes and nose and the mask removed them all! Skin feel super soft and clear and it did brighten it a bit too. The purpose I wanted this mask was to get rid of the white heads and I am super happy that this works perfectly. I do have an oily t-zone and since the summer is approaching, i could see my t-zone getting oilier and the mask soaked up all the oil and kept my skin oil-free for almost 2 days. Overall, a great mask that does its job well.
