My Scheming’s Blackhead Removal Activated Carbon Mask Set
Jun 20, 2016
In my previous blog post I’ve already introduced one of my favorite masks of the moment; the Jelly Mask by Annie’s Way. This time around I will go a step further and try out My Scheming’s Blackhead Removal Activated Carbon Mask Set, which is a 3-step kit to remove stubborn blackhead, whitehead, and sebum while tightening pores. This Blackhead Mask Set has aroused my curiosity for a while now. It contains three products that softens, cleanses and even heals the skin after the blackheads are removed, sounds just like the perfect kit for the skin, doesn’t it?
First, I really appreciate the cute and clear packaging. Nothing too fancy but the nice graphic design and the gold accents give the packaging a unique look. When you open up the packaging you’ll find the 3-step products. All three products have a nice squeeze out tube, which makes it easier to control the amount of product when applying these steps. Clear instruction (with pictures) explaining how to use the kit is provided in both Chinese and English.
All three products don’t have that much of a smell to me, I do notice a light pleasant scent, but it is definitely nothing too overwhelming. The carbon mask contains 60 ml and both solution 1 and 3 contain a small amount of 20 ml. I would say it’s a decent amount since this 3-step kit is meant to be use once in a while.
The first step is the most important step; this Deep Pore Sebum Softener solution is the key to get this mask to work its best. Before using solution 1, you’ll have to cleanse your face beforehand, just like you normally would. Then apply an appropriate amount of solution 1 and gently massage the problem area for 2 till 3 minutes. Let this solution set till blackheads are softened and rinse off the solution thoroughly. One tip: I’ve noticed that step 2 works much better on wet skin, so leave the treated spot area nice and wet before applying the carbon mask.
Step 2 is the core product of removing those stubborn black- and whiteheads. Apply a decent amount of product on the problem area and wait till the carbon mask is completely dry. When it’s all dried out, that’s when the fun begins – time to peel off this bad boy! Peel off the carbon mask from bottom to top and tadaa~ all your black- and whiteheads should be transferred onto the carbon mask, just like the picture below.
Now that the problem area is cleared out, it’s time to move on to the last step – the aftercare. Now that all the black- and whiteheads are removed, and the skin pores are nice and clean, the treated area has also become more prone to bacteria. The pores are more widened and open as well. To avoid bacteria affecting the treated area, it’s crucial to not skip this last step. This essence is meant to help tighten and also heal the pores after treatment. Just gently pat the essence on the skin to minimize skin pores for a healthier looking skin.
I have to say, I’m pretty amazed by this blackhead removal kit. It really does what it says; it has cleared out my skin very well. After using this mask set, my skin felt much cleaner and softer. Also, my foundation looked way better after using this kit.
I bought this kit at Yesstyle for € 11,79 with 7,8% off, original price was € 12,79. If you’d ask me, I think it’s a great steal consideringit’s great performance. This mask set certainly lives up to the hype and I will definitely continue using this kit again in the near future!
