Masque Bar Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask Review

I don’t know what has been going on with my skin recently, but it has been up and down for weeks, and I recently got an attack of some very painful spots. Ouch! In times like these I like to reach for my hard working products, then finish off with a deep cleansing mask. So after a pamper session using my favourite Liz Earle products, I reached for my face mask box and pulled one out from my selection – and this time it was the¬†Luminizing Charcoal Peel Off Mask from Masque.


Instructions said to apply a thick opaque layer and leave to set for 30 minutes. So I opened this up, squeezed some into my hands and set about applying it to my face. The consistency is very gloppy and sticky, and let me tell you it got messy quickly! In hindsight I should have got all the product out of the sachet beforehand, becuse trying to get more out with my now sticky fingers was quite difficult! Anyway, I managed to do it and after a few minutes all the product from the sachet was on my face.

I left it for 20 minutes to do its thing, and in this time I could feel it setting and getting tighter on my face (I love that feeling!) It set to a smooth layer and I peeled it off my face from the top down. I managed to take it all off it one go – good work! But let me tell you, it was a little painful. Nothing major, but it was a little uncomfortable to remove.

Once I had removed it all from my face, I was left with a much smoother, clearer complexion. My redness had calmed and my face felt deeply cleansed, which is something I really want when I use masks of this type. I was really impressed with how easy the mask was to take off, and how my skin felt afterwards, so I will be picking up a few more of these when I next see them and putting them into my mask box!

Are you a face mask fanatic like me? If so let me know what I need to try next – recommendations welcome!
