It's a fine product. Just works as a peel-off mask. Doesn't remove black heads completely. I have blackheads on my nose and it bought it specifically for that but it's not that much effective, I can see only light difference that too after using 3 to 4 times. Overall it's a refreshing mask. Removes light hairs on the face and gives a smooth skin.

Charcoal peel off mask is ideal for removing blackhead and whiteheads from the face. But it is not suitable for sensitive skin type because it is little bit painful while removing it. Otherwise it is best if u want to remove impurities deeply in one go if u can bear the pain.

What Does Charcoal Do For Your Skin?
2.6/5

PROS

Absorbs oil

Makes the skin feel fresh

CONS

Not for dry skin

May not actually do anything

Temporary results, if any


So charcoal is all the hype rn with the introduction of the K-beauty products. People not only use it on their skin but also have started using it internally. Although with a little research you'll know that there is no actually data from research to show that it actually works. Still externally I have seen that it clears away impurities and absords oil temporarily. It's okay for those who wanna try new things for experimenting.

I washed my face before use with warm water to open my pores and then applied this mask and it doesn't do what I thought it would do. My skin felt softer but my blackheads were still visible and I had a really hard time peeling this off.

CONS

Not for dry skin

It is not at all effective


I have ordered it 2months back from Amazon and its reviews were really good.But after using it,I did not realise the same.It makes the skin dry and it is just for the blackheads not for the whole face. Painful to remove and even for blackheads also no significant results are seen for the same. Even I tried BIOCARE Scrub,that was much better than this mask.

4.2/5

PROS

Absorbs oil

Tightens pores

Easy to use

Deeply cleanses your skin

The skin feels fresh and free of diet and impurities.

It also cleans the skin of some black and white heads.

CONS

However this does not completely remove black and white heads. It’s not a complete solution for people who have major problems with black and white heads.


The product has charcoal in it that removes impurities from the skin. It even has bamboo that is beneficial for the skin. The product has a nice fragrance and after it is applied it has to be left to dry. After letting it dry completely for about 20-25 mins it can be removed by peeling off. It leaves the skin bright and fresh. It makes the skin glowing and removes dirt and some amount of blackheads and white heads too. This product is good to be tried especially in summers.

PROS

CONS

Painful removal


After hearing a lot of goodness of activated charcoal and its mask for facial skin, I thought to give it a try, as I have some whiteheads on my T-section area. I got this product at an affordable price and its net quantity is 130gms. First of all, I do not love at all the way it smells. It was like a fevicol. It created a lot of buzz about the effectiveness and the benefits of this mask, however, despite using this product since last 2 months and that too twice in a week, I did not see any positive result. I apply this mask after cleaning my face with an oil-control facewash and pat drying my skin. I even follow the tip of peeling this mask from bottom to top, but still no change. The peeling off time is quite painful because it sticks to your skin very deeply, and if you have any unwanted facial hair, then it is going to be more painful. Although my skin feels smooth for some time after peeling off this mask, those whiteheads do not get removed. So, it does not give any sense to me that only for smoothening my facial skin I should use this Charcoal Mask Cream. Instead, I can do scrubbing, which is not painful even. Hence, I will not recommend this product to anyone, because it did not serve my purpose of use. I was expecting it to be a healthy way of removing these whiteheads, but I was incorrect. Maybe, this product can be a good option for dry skin people, but it is not a perfect option for oily skin. Therefore, I would rate this product 2 out of 5 stars, and that too for smoothening my skin for the time being. Totally Unhappy ☹

These days, charcoal are much in use in different cosmetic components. Charcoal is not a new thing but now activated charcoal is being used in masks, toothpaste, etc. I was bothered by blackheads, it is localized on my chin and nose. I had tried lot of things before using Charcoal mask cream, but nothing worked well. I tried to remove with tweezers, toothpaste, egg whites and what not. Whatever, I read or discussed in person, same day, I tried but still the deep seated ones did not change their seat. Sometimes, I got annoyed and few times, I hurt myself while scraping the black head area with the tweezers. One of my blogger friend got a chance to review Charcoal mask cream and she was satisfied with the outcome. She briefed me about the product and its effectiveness on blackheads. I ordered on Flipkart and within two three days, it was in my hand. I washed my face with my favourite face wash and pat it dry. I smeared the charcoal mask cream on my face with my fingers leaving the eyes and the lip region. I kept on my face for half an hour. In the meantime, my mom caught me with black mask and gave a sound lecture. I washed off after half an hour with plain water moving the fingers in circular motion. It took 10 minutes to clean off completely. I did not figure much in first use but after using thrice in a week, there was great improvement. The onlookers too noticed change in my black head attack portion. It had diminished to a great extent and the uneven patch had improved a lot. Now, my stress of blackheads are almost over as I have included Charcoal mask cream in my regular face care regimen. My beautician is bowled at the changes and she is sincerely recommending to her customers.

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.

Removes blackheads in one use – Good product
4/5

PROS

Easy to use

CONS

Painful removal


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.
4.6/5

PROS

Paraben-free

Oil free look

Soft skin

Affordable

CONS

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
5/5

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.

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.

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.
