Never thought I would actually bought it but I did, from Hermo.
I've heard so many good reviews on this and decided I want to try it myself. I usually mixed it with my cleansing oil to scrub and clean at the same time. It cleans much better than using my cleansing oil alone and definitely scrubs better than the rice mask. It leaves my face smooth and clean afterwards.
It smells like lemon, I think? But it does not feel like a very natural smell. I used this only every three days to keep my skin clear and fresh. It did not cause me to break out but I suspect I should stop using it because the broken capillaries on my face are increasing. (Tip: do not use this if you have broken capillaries!)
I would recommend this if you are looking for a good cheap scrub. Although I do wish it could come with a spatula!
This product comes in a tub container. It holds such a gigantic amount that I can't finish it after 6 months. I try to exfoliate once or twice every week but yet, there is still half way to go even after 6 months.
Love the scent of this product so much. It's kind of like a citrusy smell with some ginger inside?! I don't know how to describe it. There are many large sugar particles inside the mask that act as physical exfoliator. Usually I scoop out the amount that I want with my dry hand. Then I will apply 5 patches of the mask on face. Afterwards only I wet my hand with some water and rub the sugar particles around my face. I will add more water whenever it is necessary. I just place the mask on my face for around 15 minutes or when it dries. Then I will wash off the mask with water.
I feel that my face is so smooth and soft after the exfoliation. I like how the mask works and it brightens my complexion after usage. It does not clear blackheads instantly, but with continuous usage of the mask over some time, the pores and blackhead gets smaller. I definitely will repurchase this product after it finishes, maybe some other flavour.
I use this mask with damp hands, so that some of the sugar will dissolve during application. Gently scrub your face to remove dead skin and after around 10 mins, rinse your face. You will find that your skin feels smooth and soft!! Skinfood masks are generally good. There's other variants of black sugar mask in their series. My current favourite is the one with honey.
This mask contains black sugar which not only helps to exfoliate the skin but also promotes smooth, brightening skin.
After cleansing, applying desired amount onto damp face. Gently massage and dissolve of black sugar. Avoiding the eyes area. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Apply toner afterwards.
Personally, I use this black sugar scrub every twice a week to help me with my blackhead around my nose
The result afterwards leaves my skin smooth, refresh and breathable. I can see visible results of brightening effect but it is only temporary. This also helps to remove blackheads on the nose as well which I find it quite effective.
What really annoys me is the hygiene purpose. This product does not come with a spatula to take out the product. I have to use my damp finger which might contaminate the product.
Overall, I would recommend this product but not to people with sensitive skin as this sugar scrub might be too abrasive to their skin which might cause irritation.
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.
