does not suit every skin type


I have a mixed skin tone, thus most beauty products suits my skin. Though I rarely get blackheads, still a few really small blackheads develop on my nose areas often, I found it inconvenient to use the conventional blackhead removal methods, like using tweezers. Thus after reading some online reviews, I used Charcoal Mask Cream for the purpose of removal of the small blackheads from my nose. The product comes in a tube packing, packing is not so impressive (at least for me). I used it after washing my face and after taking a few minutes of steam on the face (hot towel method). You need to take a sufficient quantity of the product. It should cover the whole of your face in a normal to a thick layer. Do not apply it with a brush; rather application from a finger is more easy & fast. Let it dry completely (may take around 20 minutes), removal part is the most tricky one. As per my use, I will suggest you to try removing it from outer to inner side of face; means try to remove from edges. Start from the forehead, from side locks to cheeks, likewise from the lower neck to upper part of the neck. Try to roll slowly and it will remove in a peel only. I agree that it was not painless, though bearable but it was painful. It also took some of my facial hair, which is a plus point. It was actually effective on blackheads, whiteheads and the dirt removal from the nose area. The skin was actually shining. I was quite satisfied with it. Just I feel that it is not suitable for dry skin as this product itself causes skin dryness. I would say that the Charcoal mask cream is suitable for those who have gross blackheads and whiteheads. It makes the skin smooth I also like the complete and simple instructions given on the pack.

After a recommendation from a friend and mixed reviews on the internet, I have purchased the Charcoal mask cream. The cream comes in proper packaging, but the lid of the tube is not so sturdy. I have been using the cream for about four weeks now, and I have decided to help other consumers before they opt for the charcoal cream. Before applying, I have washed my face with warm water (to open the pores). After using it took about 15-20 minutes to dry. The consistency is thick, and you must use the right amount of the mask to cover up the whole face, and it is tacky as well.

But it doesn’t bother me much as for the price the quantity is right. After 20 minutes I have peeled the mask, and it felt like a thin paper, and it hurts because it gets stuck to the face and I have noticed some facial hair is attached to the mask, this might hurt a bit, but you could have a soft sin once the process was done. I can see the dead skin cells, whiteheads and blackheads on the mask after the mask is peeled off. I washed my face with water and applied toner to shrink the pores on my face and then applied the moisturizer.

To my surprise, I felt perfect once I removed and washed the face as it was very refreshing. My nose was clean, with no blackheads. Overall the Charcoal mask cream is a suitable product for those who have reasonable blackheads and whiteheads. It makes the skin smooth. I love the packaging of the cream with proper instructions provided. I would suggest this mask cream use biweekly, and I feel it doesn’t work for more deep-rooted blackheads. It sure gives a little glow on the skin after removing.

Gives a parlour effect at a cheaper price by removing blackheads and getting a oil free look.

Painful removal


I have watched many videos about charcoal face mask and the effects it had on face in facebook. What got my attention towards this mask was it's removal of blackheads and the oil free look it gave after peeling off the mask as I have an oily skin especially the T zone of my face. So, when I saw this charcoal mask in a store, I was excited and dint have a second thought but just bought it. It is paraben free. The packaging comes in the tube form like your fairness cream or toothpaste with a screw type cap. I don't have the habit of going to parlour regularly as I have to spend atleast 2-3 hours sitting ideally.

This mask has made my life easier. I can now watch television or do any of my work while getting a glow and an oil free look. I just wash and pat my face dry before applying the mask. I apply the mask on my face using my index finger. Apply a coat on your face, not too thin or too thick. Avoid your eyebrows and your hair on the side of the face or it will be very painful while peeling off the mask which is the only negative part I found.

I usually tie my hair tight and use a elastic Hair band to avoid my hair falling off towards my face. It takes around 20- 30 minutes to dry completely. You can feel the skin tightening. The smell of the mask is pleasant and don't have a strong smell. Coming to removal part, which is very painful. I have used everyuth golden glow peel off which doesn't hurt. But this pains and I felt a burning sensation after the removal. This sensation could be subsided by wrapping your face with a wet towel and sitting under a fan. All this pain felt OK and worthy when I felt the softness on my face. My face was oil free completely. If you have facial hair, be careful as it will pain more. I use it once a week and love it. Price is also less.

This mask is perfect for all skin types

PROS

Suitable for all skin types

Helps in oil control

Deep cleanses skin

CONS

Painful to remove


The process of removing blackheads in the parlor gives me nightmares. Charcoal masks have made my life easier. I bought this particular mask for two reasons - oil control and sensitive skin. For sensitive skin, a patch test is necessary. I used it on my arm and did not have any adverse reaction to it.

So went on to apply it on my face. The application is easy; the index finger spreads it out evenly. Drying takes about 20 mins under the fan or AC. I have an extremely oily T-zone, and I could see the effect of oil control even after 24 of using the mask.

Now, there are some small issues I faced while peeling off the mask. Some tweaks can easily avoid these.

What helps is to avoid using too much cream on one area. Make sure you spread it out evenly and that the layer isn't too thick. What happens otherwise is, the outer layer dries out, the inner layer is still wet, and it's not easy to wash off. And using a regular towel to clean it ruins the cloth for good.

Also, try to ensure your facial hair is to a minimum. If your pain tolerance is low, then the peeling process is going to hurt. I found that peeling from chin to forehead is less painful.

The result is lovely smooth T-zone, especially the nose.

Great product at a reasonable price

PROS

Affordable

Dries quickly

CONS

Irritates the skin


There are many options for charcoal peel off masks these days. And if you’re a beginner like me, you wouldn’t want to spend a lot of money on a product you’re not sure is going to work.

The charcoal peel off mask is easy to apply and easy to remove as well. Takes about 15 mins to dry completely. I am prone to blackheads and whiteheads returning every fortnight. So at this cost, I don't mind some self-pampering. I got some itching sensation after removing the mask. But it settled down after I washed my face.

Painful process
2/5

PROS

Removes blackheads and whiteheads

CONS

Extremely painful


If you have never used a peel-off mask before, then kindly don't start with this product. I have used many peel off masks before this, and none of them have hurt me this way. This dries quick and tightens the skin and hurts even if you move an inch. Don't get me started with the peel off process. My god!! I had tears every time I tried to pull it. The cheeks hurt the most. The nose is probably the only area that doesn't hurt. I don't remember, because my face was numb by the time I was done.

It solves the purpose of removing blackheads and whiteheads, but it is not worth putting yourself through this pain to make that happen. There are far better, less painful options available these days.

Easy and pocket-friendly solution for smooth skin

I dread going to the parlor every month and putting myself through the scrubbing, steaming and blackhead removing process. It is expensive and painful at the same time. As I was looking for an alternative, I came across this product and decided to try it out. And it works like magic. I followed the simple process of wash, scrub, and steam at home then applied this mask. The entire process took me 30 mins, and now I am in love with it. My nose has never felt better. I am going to have this parlor session for myself every weekend.
