I've seen the videos. The pain. The agony. The screams that can haunt you in your sleep! If it is so painful, why are people putting themselves through it even after seeing evidence of its torture? There was only one thing I could do, the only thing a man in his right mind in my position would do............Try it for myself!! My years of fitness have made me into a low key masochist, not that pain turns me on but I don't shy away from it! When it comes I embrace it with open arms. What people may run from, I run to so it was only right that I accepted the challenge of doing a post about the black mask peel. How bad can it be? I've got sensitive skin, will I feel the pain more? Is this just another internet fad or is there something really beneficial here? Well let's dive into this shall we?
What Is The Black Mask And What Are the Benefits?
A simple google search will reveal quite a bit of brands out there that carry the black mask product. I ended up going with Boscia, admittedly from seeing another youtuber use it. They are sold in Sephora and Sephora is a trusted brand in my book. The Black Mask is a cream mixture of skin loving ingredients such as calcium, charcoal powder, various flower and leaf extract that help remove blackheads, clear acne, reduce oil on your face.
Does it work? Is it painful? Yes and No. Well, at least with me it wasn't painful but it really does make you skin feel soft and smooth while removing blackheads and excessive oil on your face. It took about 30 mins for it to dry up (I took a quick nap with it on for the last 15 mins) and the peel off took about 5 mins. Between this and exfoliating, you face will be feeling baby skin smooth in no time however unlike exfoliating putting on the black mask, in my opinion, should be done couple of times in the month with exfoliating in between. It's just too much time and work to be doing it couple days a week bro! Remember, I like to be in and out of the bathroom. I definitely recommend it even if you have to try it once, get the cheaper version and see if you like it. It is important to note, with almost everything, you'll see the long time result if you do it over time not just a one time experiment. I'm definitely doing it again.
