7:38:00 PM Mei B 0 Comments

Hello Lovelies!

I'm back today with another product review from my haul, and this time it's the infamous Skinfood's Black Sugar Mask Wash Off!

Actually, I was planning to buy Missha's Super Aqua Detox Peeling Gel since I ran out of it,  but I decided to give this one a try, especially that I've heard many good thinks about it. So, am I satisfied with it?

How to use: 
After cleansing, Massage onto damp face, avoiding eye and mouth areas. To minimize irritation, add water or toner while massaging. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.


It is skinfood wash off mask's usual sturdy plastic jar with a srew off lid, and plastic seal with the brand's name on it.
The product's name and short description of the brand are written in gree, printed on a brownish background (it gives a nature reminder since it looks like a cardboard) and glued on the lid, while the ingredients and some instructions are provided on the sides, with both English and Korean languages.
I expected it to be a little fuller but no, there is about 2cm of empty space

The scent:
I personally love lemon, but this mask's scent was so artificial that it becomes annoying. I wouldn't mind if it smells like real lemon, instead of smelling like a lime detergent (like Mr Propre to be exact). I just hope they stop adding artificial fragances if they can't make it similar to the original one, since it ruins the whole natural concept.


Did I mention that it doesn't come with any spatula or spoon? Well it doesn't, and that's why I'm using a little spoon, not only because it's more hygienic that way, but also because it's quite solid and the spoon makes taking out the product easier.
I expected it to be a really harsh or rough on the skin but it wasn't that harsh (the first time I tried it I was like"ouch this is a little harsh" but now that I'm used to it, I prefer using it without adding water or toner). The sugar granules make a good job exfoliating the skin without irritating it, and promoting the blood circulation.
I let it on my face for about 15min and I noticed that it melted a little bit (I was putting too much product when I took the "0min" picture, that's why I decided to take some and apply it on my neck, but it was an awful idea since I had a hard time washing it off and ended up  wetting my clothes...)

After washing it off, my skin felt really smooth and radiant, without that useless tight or dry feeling. I like it.

- Affordable price.
- Exfoliates gently.
- Sturdy packaging.
- Doesn't irritate my skin (I was expecting my sensitive skin to react badly after seeing the ingredient list and using it without adding water or toner, maybe my skin isn't that sensitive after all?)

- No spatula.
- Annoying scent (I suffocated during those 15 min, but fortunately it doesn't linger on the skin after washing it off)
- Some ingredients.

Would I repurchase it?
I think so! But I may try the strawberry version of it first.
