SKINFOOD Black Sugar Honey Mask
This black sugar mask is great! I use it after washing my face with an oil cleanser and then a foam cleanser. I then layer this mask onto my face while it's very slightly damp and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Then I step into the shower, and start massaging the mask all over my face so that it exfoliates. It is gentle and doesn't feel too harsh on the face. once the mask is rinsed off, my face feels sooo smooth! I highly recommend this product.
It comes packaged in a small screw top tub and contains 100g worth of product. The scrub is brown in color and is jam packed with sugar grains in a slightly oily base. The product is very well scented kinda citrusy. The directions state that after cleansing, gently massage over wet face. As the scrub is sugar based I like to ensure that my face is only slightly damp and I apply the product with dry hands. I would add some water into the amount you are going to use before applying to avoid it being too harsh on the skin for my friends who have sensitive skin. It is very easy to wash off this mask as it does not leave a residue. I am left with fresh, clean skin that looks healthy and is never, ever irritated. It also makes my skin super soft.
I had higher hopes for this, but it's not a terrible product. I apply it in a circular motion, lightly buffing / exfoliating my skin In preparation to let all that honey goodness absorb into my skin over the next 10 mins. When I rinse I also slightly buff and rub away all the product. I feel like my skin looks slightly red and bumpy initially after I dry my face, not over my entire face but around my nose/jaw. Maybe I'm exfoliating to much? Maybe something in it slightly irritates my skin? Maybe the fragrance is a bit too much? At any rate I don't notice any real change in my skin from using this.
I absolutely adore this mask and this is one of my top wash off masks! When my skin is feeling dehydrated, dry, or flaky, I would slather a generous layer after washing my face or showering. It says to leave on for about 10 minutes, but honestly I leave it on until I finish watching an episode of a TV show. The fragrance is quite strong and artificial, but I love it and don't mind it. Right when I am about to wash it off, I gently massage and exfoliate my face with the sugar granules. After washing, my skin feels like a baby's bottom. The honey in the mask was the perfect hydrator and the sugar granules got rid of all the dead skin and flakiness. I've repurchased this about 3 times and will keep doing so!
The mask smells like sweet lemons. Also, when you apply it, remember that your face must be damp, not too dry or not to wet, because it'll be rough if it's too dry and it'll be ineffective if your face is too wet. I usually keep mine on for 15 minutes, the max recommended time, and it leaves my skin feeling very soft. However, I don't know how exfoliated it actually is, so I find myself using it twice, borderlining thrice a week.
I wasn't impressed with the ingredients in this product; something called "skin food" makes me think it will be super healthy for my skin but the ingredients list does indicate parabens, fragrance, and the preservative BHT so it's not exactly as healthy as the name implies. It doesn't have a great smell, but to be fair it did leave my skin feeling cleaner and softer. Another perk is that the price point is very reasonable
This is a delicious mask! (I didn't really eat it). I love how the mask feels on the skin, although others may find it slightly irritating as it is quite stick and "sugary" it smells great though and feels like it sinks into your pores. Takes sometime to clean off!
Skinfood has never disappointed me with any of their products! They smell amazing. Their price is perfect. Their packaging is adorable! And now that you can find them at Ulta it's just even better!!! All products from Skinfood have made a huge improvement to my skin! I love their sugar scrubs because they do a deep cleaning on my skin while keeping it nice and hydrated!
