If you have ever used a black peel off mask, you would know that they all have a strong chemical scent and they often tend to dry up in the tube, leading to wastage of your money. Fabeya has now got you covered on both fronts with their Bamboo Charcoal Sea Algae Peel Off Mask that comes in the form of a powder! Read on to find out more about this unique product.
The most unique thing about this product is of course the fact that it is a peel off mask in the form of a powder. You simply have to mix this light grey, finely milled powder with some regular water or rose water to form a thick paste. A 3-4 mm layer of this paste needs to be applied on the skin and peeled off after it has become completely dry, after 20 minutes or so. You may need to experiment a little with the thickness of the layer that you apply on your skin because if it is too thin it will crack and if it is too thick it will take a long time to dry. However, once you have the thickness right, the product will peel off pretty easily and will remove white heads and dead skin quite effectively.
Another great thing about this product is that it is PVA free and does not dry out the skin or leave it feeling red and sensitive. While most black peel off masks in the market leave the skin fairly dehydrated and sensitive, this one actually hydrates the skin while removing only dead cells and white heads. There is a lot of controversy surrounding cream based peel off masks, with many people claiming that they actually contain glue in them. Not only can you trust Fabeya for their all-natural formulations (this one contains detoxifying bamboo charcoal and hydrating sea algae), even while using the product you will feel that it is made from pure and natural, non-toxic ingredients.
Priced at INR 399 for a 30gm pack, this affordable product will give you several uses. If you have used a black peel off mask in the past and have found it extremely harsh or stripping then this product might convert you into a peel-off mask lover. Do try it out once, I am sure you will love it!
Everybody is loving black peel-off masks these days and I keep trying new ones from time to time. The recent addition to my stash is the MondSub Peel Off Charcoal Mask. This peel off mark claims to deep cleanse the skin, remove blackheads, and remove dark spots. Read on to find out if the product lives up to its claims.
First of all, one thing that I did not like about the product is that it also claims to have skin “whitening” properties due to the presence of Arbutin in the formula. Honestly, nobody’s skin needs to be “whitened” and I am waiting for the day when brands stop using this claim as a marketing strategy.
Moving on to the actual performance of the product though, it has all the characteristics of a decent peel off mask. The formula is a slightly thick and sticky black liquid that has a strong odor of chemicals when freshly squeezed out of the tube but the scent fades away within a few minutes. You need to cleanse your face and pat a warm wet towel on it before application to prep your skin and open up the pores. Then apply a thin and even layer of the product on the face avoiding your eyes, hair, and eyebrows. The product dries up within 15-20 minutes and when this happens your skin will feel slightly stretched out. At this point, the mask will start lifting off from the edges and you can pull it gently. Depending on how evenly you had applied the product, it will come off in large pieces. One word of caution is that this mask will pull out a majority of facial hair too, so if you have a peach fuzz then pulling the mask off will be fairly painful. However, the mask does a good job at removing white heads and dead skin, making it worth the pain. Any residual product can be washed off with water and using a toner after this mask is a must.
Overall, this peel off mask works pretty well but is definitely not meant for sensitive skin. It leaves the skin smooth and bump free and the price point of INR 399 is ok but I am a little worried that the product may dry out in the tube before I am able to finish it off. My hunt for a spectacular black peel off mask still continues but I am satisfied with this product until then.
