Peel-off masks, especially the charcoal ones, are trending crazily these days. You must have already come across a gazillion pictures and demo videos of charcoal peel-off masks on Facebook and Instagram. I recently got my hands on Heathvit’s Activated Charcoal Peel-Off Mask and this is the first ever charcoal peel-off mask that I tried hence I had really high expectations from this one. So, let’s see if it stood up to my expectations or not.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT AND CLAIMS-
MY EXPERIENCE –
As per what I have read and heard about charcoal peel-off mask, it is suppose to take off all the gunk, dirt and excessive oil from the face and makes it look squeaky clean. It also helps you get rid of blackheads and whiteheads. Well activated charcoal is known to be great at all these tasks but let’s if the Heathvit’s Activated Charcoal peel-off mask does all of this or not.
The packaging of the product is very basic, nothing fancy about it. The peel-off mask is jet black in color and smells like some cheap nail paint remover (or acetone). I really hate the smell of this product.
Now, when I applied the peel-off mask on my face, it went on smoothly, and it dried-off in about 20 minutes. Now, the main task of peeling it off was to be done. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to peel-off this mask as it doesn’t come off in one go like you must seen in the several Instagram videos; I literally had to scratch it off. I didn’t see its ‘’peel-off” mechanism working. Though I tried it several times to see if it works or not, but no, the peel-off mechanism just didn’t work.
Coming to the results of the mask, I could see a lot of blackheads and whiteheads still on my face, which means it didn’t work on them too but it did take away some of the excess oil from my face along with the dirt. It also cleansed my pores as they looked pretty clean and shrunken too but they got back to their normal size after an hour or so. It also made my skin soft and supple.
- Cleanses the pores.
- Makes skin soft and supple.
- Sucks out excess oil.
- Removes dirt.
- Didn’t peel-off easily.
- Doesn’t remove blackheads and whiteheads.
- Smells pathetic.
OVERALL VERDICT –
Overall, I am neither happy nor disappointed with the product. It is good if you just want to get rid of excess oil and dirt from the face and get soft and supple skin. Other than that, it does nothing.
