The Unexpectedly Pink Charcoal Mask That’s Perfect For Selfies
Ever wondered how different a bubblegum pink charcoal mask would differ from the original one? Our reader Naomi breaks it down for you.| July 27, 2018
Welcome to KULALA Beauty Club, where YOU our dear readers help us suss out the best in the beautysphere. This week, we have Naomi Tham (@naomitham_) and her review of the Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask. Read her last review here.
Liquid bubble-gum, anyone? For a pink-obsessed human, this was good enough to trigger a squeal. It’s just too cute with the little dainty font, doodles and a good pun – “I’m peeling myself”. But, that’s not all. The pink tube also dispenses a mask paste in the very same shade. Was this perhaps made in a Barbie factory?
The peel-off mask promises better, brighter and more radiant skin, just like any other one. That didn’t mean I wasn’t still excited to see if the goop could cleanse my pores, reduce the number of blackheads and pores, all while experiencing the satisfying peeling process. I have to say, it isn’t the easiest mask to apply because of the thick and gooey consistency – but that’s normal for a peel-off mask. It felt quite cooling, and is good for relaxing after a tiring day.
After 15 to 20 minutes, my skin felt tight, and it was pretty easy to separate the product from my skin. The process was rather cathartic I might add. I was expecting some pain, no lie, because I have baby hairs on my face, but it managed to be completely pain-free. Upon closer inspection, I did notice that some peach fuzz type hairs were removed from my skin, along with dead skin that was clinging to the surface.
As a result, my skin did feel smoother, but it didn’t, sadly, remove some of my blackheads. It may take a few more times, and it could actually be a blessing in disguise as that would mean that it is not overly strong, which could be potentially agitating for the skin.
Overall, I liked the experience of using the mask and would recommend those starting out with peel-off masks to start with this. It’s pretty gentle, does the job of removing surface debris and the pink is just really fun for silly selfies. I would totally bring this for a slumber party.
