Blackhead Killer Mask* £14.95 for 5 masks
I was recently contacted by StyleLux and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the Blackhead Killer Face Masks. I love using face masks when I am having a hot bath with a magazine, candles and a hair mask on for the ultimate pampering session. I hadn't heard anything about the Blackhead Killer Mask before but was excited to find out it's a peel off mask, I used to (still do) love using them when I was first discovering beauty products. I don't tend to use them as much due to having dry skin and needing hydrating masks. The Blackhead Killer Mask is said to remove spots, blackheads and excess oil in 10 minutes. It claims that as the mask dries it 'sucks out' impurities and lifts them out of your skin. It also says to remove redness from spots, reduce scarring, and remove dead skin cells to leave cleaner, smoother and fresher skin.
I was slightly scared of applying the black product onto my face, it is a thick mask and did take a couple of minutes to apply evenly. The first time I used the Blackhead Killer Mask I applied a whole sachet evenly on my skin and left it for 15 minutes as it took a while to dry. It was really painful to remove and left my skin bright red and quite sore.
The second time I used it I applied a much thinner layer onto the skin for 10 minutes and found it a lot easier to remove. It still stung in places when I peeled it off but was nowhere near as bad. I do enjoy the peeling off aspect so it was bearable for me. The results of the mask on my skin were quite mixed, around my nose and chin, where I do get a couple blackheads and have slightly noticeable pores, I was left with softer feeling skin. It did feel like it had made a different to the appearance of the pores and it removed the blackheads. However everywhere else my skin felt tight and dry, as if it had stripped to much oil out of skin. I would use the Blackhead Killer Mask again but only in places where I need help removing impurities. I have dry skin, which is probably why this didn't work so well for me. However I can imagine this working wonders for those with oily or spot prone skin..
Would you try the Blackhead Killer Mask? You can purchase the mask from StyleLux for £14.95 for 5 sachets.
