Product tested by Yashoda.

Name of Mask :

Charcoal Clarifying Mask by Miss Spa. Made in Taiwan. 0.88 oz.

Unique Ingredient :

Bamboo Charcoal : this comes from mature bamboo plants that have been harvested and burned in ovens at very high temperatures of 800-1200°C. It’s origins go way back to the Chinese Ming Dynasty from around the year 1486. It is actually called “the Black Diamond” for it’s healing properties that are often used for medicinal purposes. It is known to remove toxins by binding and pulling dirt out of pores, which essentially minimizes pores. With the same pulling effect, it can also pull out unwanted excess oil and help take care of acne by deep cleaning the skin.

Pros :

  • No scent at all
  • Very thin essence
  • Thin black charcoal sheet
  • Was very easy to put on face and mould into shape
  • Fits face well and one piece
  • Non-sticky essence

Cons :

  • Essence is so thin, some of it got into my eye as I was smoothing it around the curves of my face and it stung for a few minutes
  • Poor packaging quality – it has two slits to tear the top to open- both sides did not tear properly and had to get out a pair of scissors to open

My Review :

5/5 stars – I definitely would repurchase.

The packaging was simple and had clear instructions on use.

I had troubles with tearing the package open – it ended up not tearing evenly so I had to get a pair of scissors to open it.

The mask itself was thin and the essence was very thin in consistency.IMG_5010.jpg

It was easy to apply and the one piece sheet fit the face well. I also liked how there was no scent. The only issue that I had was that since the essence was so thin, it was quite runny so as I was smoothing it out over my face, some of the liquid got into my eye which stung for a few minutes.

I left it on for about 30 minutes until it started to dry.

After taking it off : skin did look clearer and pores smaller! Not much essence left, but patted it in dry, it was not sticky.

Next day : I still felt like my skin looked clean and the pores looked smaller. Overall a good sheet mask and I would repurchase.
