This is actually recommended by my friend and i bought this from her hermo. That's why i was thinking i should try this out. it usually applied around 2 times in a week. it has a lemon smell and is pretty acceptable. i feel this is better than other scrubs that i have used so far. It does really cleanse and give my face a good scrub to make it clean and fresh. But i feel that the particles are kinda rough and quite big. I dont have any break outs so far. Affordable.
Although it has been marketed as a mask I have tried using it as one, it didn't have much effect on my face as compared to me using it as an exfoliating face wash. Honestly, it didn't do much as a mask it just stayed on there and didn't get rid of the impurities and gunk. BUT when I exfoliated with this, it was the best decision for my skincare routine. IT WORKS. However, don't exfoliate too hard my fellow ladies/men, cause it'll hurt your face haha the sugar is a bit harsh so just gently massage your face and slightly harder on your nose area (so the blackheads can be removed). Swear by this as an exfoliator but not a mask ! I'll give it a 4 stars anyway heh
I have always heard about this mask from my friend but since that I was using the super volcanic clay mask which i LOVE, I don't want to try other product until my friend gave me one of this. After using it I understand why everyone love it. My face becomes so soft and smooth after using it for once. Yes only once. This shows that how great and effective this product is. The only thing that I don't like is that it doesn't help to minimize my pores which is one of my biggest concern. I feel like the super volcanic clay mask helps to minimize my pores better but the black sugar mask makes my face a lot softer. I can't choose which one is better because they work differently so I just use both according to my face condition.
While many swear by this exfoliating scrub, I'm not entirely impressed. I have acne prone and sensitive skin. I find this scrub a bit too harsh for my skin as the bead particles are well, rough. So I need to be extra gentle when massaging this product on my face. An alternative would be to dilute the product with water and scrub it between fingers to reduce the roughness. The skin does feel smoother after rinsing, but the effect is temporary for me. Lastly, I don't think it's a good idea to use this while the skin is breaking out.
This black sugar scrub smells delicious when you open it. I left it on my face for 15 minutes according to the instruction. My face did not feel itchy during 15 minutes and there was no allergic reaction after washing off. When I washed off my skin was instantly smooth and soft but it only last for few hours. It is not really a harsh scrub for sensitive skin but I didn't see any pores improvement after several times of usage as well as the skincare could penetrate better into my skin. Just an ordinary facial scrub for weekly exfoliation.
An exfoliating wash-off scrub-slash-mask that leaves skin clean and revitalized. It has this sugar bits that thoroughly sloughs off oil and grime from the skin, whilst its self-heating properties allow pores to open and allow the mask.
