The package is in a different language, so I actually had to Google the directions for use. This is a very thick mask that you have to spread on your face with your fingers. It has the consistency of school glue, but gladly does not smell like it.
I made the mistake of trying to wash my
It leaves a refreshing, cooling feeling once on your face. This mask is to be left on for at least thirty minutes, and then peeled off once dried. It is important to paint this mask on in an even layer or else you will have some areas that don't dry as quick as other areas.
Also, it is important to avoid your hairline and upper lip. (I found this out the hard way.) I was literally ripping out individual strands of hair when it came time to peel the mask off. Ouch.
Here is what the mask looks like when it is peeled off. If you're careful you can do it in one piece. Just discard the mask once peeled off. It does hurt a bit to peel off, but go slowly and do a bit at a time. I do have a high threshold for pain though, so it did not bother me as much as it might someone who has more sensitive skin. I did this while watching t.v. late at night, so I just made sure that I had a garbage can next to me while I picked my face off. lol
This mask left my skin feeling slightly tingly after taking it off-so I would not recommend this to people who have sensitive skin. This type of mask is advertised as a 'whitening' mask in Asia. Although I did not buy it for the purpose of 'whitening' I felt it did do a good job of deep cleaning and exfoliating.
I also found out while Googling images and directions that the black mask is specifically targeted for blackheads and pores. I will do a review on that one as well, so stay tuned.
- Affordable @ $1 each mask
- Good for deep cleaning treatment
- Not scented (as far as I could tell)
- Whitening properties
- Hard to find (in my area)
- Not recommended for those with extremely sensitive skin
- Rather thick which makes hard for an even application
- Some may find removal painful
Repurchase? Yes, I think that next time I am in MN again, I will get some more of these. They are quite affordable at just $1 each and they do a good job of giving my skin a good deep cleaning. I will stock up on these next time.
