I've been thinking of doing a series of posts for the longest time about masks that I'm using currently in my skincare routine.
This series will include different type of masks: Blackheads, Moisturizing, Detox, Peeling ,etc.
It will be featuring different Brands and price ranges.
Per usual I will start with a Korean brand :)
MISSHA - BLACK GHASSOUL PEEL-OFF NOSE PACK
What the product promises:
The peel off type nose pack is made out of Moroccan Black Ghassoul Clay and Pure Charcoal to help clean and remove pores and sebum.
Simply squeeze from the tube to make your own pack.
In addition to your nose, try using the pack on chin, forehead, and other areas needing pore care.
I've been using the pore stripes from Biore for years, So this mask just caught my eyes immediately.
you can apply the mask on the problematic area and as it dries it will become just like the famous pore stripes But, much more affordable.
This product contains Rhassoul or Ghassoul which is a natural mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This mineral is good for cleaning the body and has been used by Moroccan women for centuries to care for their skin and hair.
It also contains Pure Charcoal which boasts beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers.
Directions of use:
After washing your face and applying Toner, get appropriate amount and spread evenly onto nose.
Leave and let dry. Peel off after 15 minutes. Use 1-2 times per week.
I use this mask once every 2 weeks. I apply this mask on my nose area to combat blackheads.
I don't recommend using it as a full face mask! apply it only on your nose and chin! The reason is that it's very very sticky and may pull out hair from your face , sort of like waxing.
And having no eyebrows is not the look we're going for ;)
The scent is overwhelming and even obnoxious and I'm usually not sensitive to smells.
After the initial shock of applying it on I was glad the scent doesn't linger on. So waiting for 15 minutes won't be a torture.
The application is surprisingly easy while still being very sticky but fuss free. You should apply a good layer of the product not too thin but not to thick and make sure to rub in deep.
Once the mask is completely dry you'd want to peel it very slowly and gently. while peeling off the mask you should notice some of the blackheads peeling off with it. So Gross but yet satisfying :)
Don't forget to wash off any residue and apply a good moisturizer.
After using this mask I do feel like I deep cleansed my pores, BUT and that's a big one I don't feel like it made any difference or an impact on the blackheads situation. Which is very disappointing.
I will use up this product and it's quite good for doing a deep cleanse from time to time. But I won't be re-purchasing this one again it just didn't do the job for me.
A day after I usually have peelings and dry patches on my nose. which I get when also using the Biore stripes.
