The product is a dark metallic charcoal and the texture is very soft, smooth and creamy...it feels rich but very light, almost reminds me of a souffle haha
The directions say to apply w the included spatula, which I struggled with since I'm a more hands-on kind of girl. You'll see in my story that I think I applied a thicker layer than intended but it still came off easily!
You leave the mask on for 5-10 min but it doesn't dry out like a clay mask does and when you are ready you wrap the included magnet in tissues and just swipe across your face to remove! You can literally feel the bots of mask being pulled off by the magnet (not painful btw but super cool to experience!) Pro tip: wrap w multiple tissues bc that magnetic cling is strong and your tissue will rip when you're trying to change out for a new one
I was sooo fascinated by the whole thing, and so happy when I was done that this wasn't just a gimmicky mask for fun (though it is fun!) There is some clear post-mask residue, which is intended since the directions say don't rinse w water and to rub it in instead. Def not oily or greasy. My skin felt hydrated and so smooth, like it was already primed and makeup-ready! But you can (and should) follow w the rest of your skincare routine
I'm curious about the science behind this mask, so will def look into it more but in theory the iron powder binds to pollutants on your skin and then the positive charge on the magnet pulls it out 🤷 There's a pretty hefty pricetag ($75 for 3oz) though so I don't see myself dropping bank for a full size anytime soon, esp when the science behind the claims is a little unclear, but I def enjoyed trying this out and the science nerd in me is totally geeking out 🤓
So I just put it in my under eye area from my inner eye to my outer temple by my hair line. I have extremely oily skin that is very acne prone and almost always broken out. Unless its some sort of clearing, acne, oily skin mask I'm not about to put it all over my face without testing it.
Fortunately I had a place to do that. At 27 I'm getting older and our under eyes never have oil glands and only get dryer with age. Thats why no one breaks out there in case you were curious. So I've been a bit dry there the last year or so so I decided to try it there since that's where we age first and I've started getting small smile lines around the corners of my eyes and lines in my under eyes from no sleep and just dryness there which is super weird considering how excessively oily I really am.
So anyway, I left it on for a bit over 10 min and realized it wasn't even beginning to dry and that it's probably not going to. Wrapped my magnet in toilet paper and went to work. It was just as amazing as the videos. And to see how it clung to the magnet was also amazing. Even when trying to take the toilet paper off it would rip and stay. It was almost like something pretty heavy was all around the edges. And no matter how much i wipe this thing I can't get it clean. It came off with soap and water and a towel for the most part though. Just make sure youre using a strong tissue or toilet paper. My toilet paper isn't cheap (charmin) but its not as thick as a good tissue I suppose.
So anyway it came off easy. Then I looked close and felt my skin. There was like a serum type residue left behind which is exactly why you wouldn't want to wash this off because then that wouldn't be left behind to rub in with whatever skin healthy ingredients it has in it. It rubbed in quickly and sank in fully after a few minutes leaving my under eyes silky smooth. Literally they felt like silk. It felt nice and moisturized and soft but no greasy, oily or heavy. It was great. I noticed that my skin looked a bit less tired and droopy I suppose but its not like it took all semblance of lines away. I don't think anything could. But at this price you almost expect it to.
I don't think I would re purchase unless I seen some pretty major results show up soon. Like within the next 24 hours and that's not likely to happen. But it's important we don't get stuck in the cycle of "it will work with continued use." Masks don't get used like that. We use them once maybe twice a week and thats rare so it needs to have results we can see and feel when we use them.
I do feel some great results and see a little but I just don't know if its worth 3/4 of a hundred bucks to me or if it's even something I could use on the entirety of my excessively oily skin. But I will be sure to give that a try and come back and update. If its been more than a week since I've updated you can assume nothing was better or worse with whole face use and that my review stands as is.
I did a multi masking with GLAMGLOW® Supermud® Clearing Treatment on the rest of my face. I'm thinking now this was a mistake because this mask has to be rinsed and when I do that its unlikely I'm going to be able to keep my eye area dry so its probably going to wash away whatever was left behind unless I can get it to sink in completely. But I wear this mask for an hour instead of the 20 min. I see way more results that way. Most masks you won't be wearing that long and you can't get magnetight wet during or after removal or it defeats its entire purpose so this is not a mask for the multitasking trend that I love so much for specific issues on specific parts of my face.
I think this mask would be best for those with dry and aging skin. Already very mature skin. With no other issues would be ideal.
I don't recommend and I don't deny it has some positives so its entirely up to you whether or not the positives I have explained here are worth it to you to spend that kind of money because we all spend money on things that treat our most bothersome issues and since mine are acne and oil and large pores I just don't see myself spending this kind of money on these results personally again despite how nice my skin feels at the moment.
Just make sure like all high end anything that youre buying from an authorized retailer like the company, sephora or another trusted retailer. People and small sites buy from the black market and although they may look similar you won't ever get the same results and you will end up losing every dollar you spent because of trying to save a few dollars. So unless they can prove where and when they bought it buy it from a reputable and trusted source. The few dollars more it costs is worth tge piece of mind that its the real deal.
The product is kind of small, and I imagine if you used this mask several times a week, it wouldn’t last you more than a month.
The magnetic does work to take off the product which is cool and different, but I don’t feel it pulled much out of my skin. It also is kind of difficult to get the product off of the magnet afterward because it just clings to the magnet.
I definitely wouldn’t buy this for full price, I don’t feel it did much for my skin at all.
Just an average product.
First I am so confused why the reviews aren’t higher. This mask is amazing! It’s the coolest skincare product I have ever tried and actually successfully works!
This is not a typical mask like what most people are used to so I can see why the reviews are lower. But you have to do your research. Online and even on Sephora it shows you how it works. It’s not meant to dry down because this mask is meant to plump the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This is not a mask that is supposed to pull gunk out so you can’t rate a product lower when it’s not meant for that. You definitely have to use a thicker tissue paper and really wrap it. I had 0 issues because I researched. I felt the magnets coming off my face and it was the most satisfying thing. My skin was smooth, radiant, and plump. I’m not sure if I would want to spend the $75 for the larger size but I’m considering it with how it made my skin feel. I definitely recommend trying the smaller size first to see how you like before spending the $75. But again I love this!!
