I've been really curious about why this face mask is so popular and wanted to try it out. While my friend was overseas, he purchased this for me as it was on my wish list :D I have been in love with this face mask since the first time I used it.
Enriched with minerals and vitamins, this face scrub effectively exfoliates dead skin that prevents makeup application, while revitalising skin to promote smooth and glowing skin.
WHERE TO BUY: There are various online retailers you can purchase this from.
Ebay - $8.50
Koreadepart - $6.09
Tester Korea - $7.70
PACKAGING: A simple hard plastic tub similar to the Lush face masks with English and Korean instructions. There is 100g of product and you can see how much you have left without having to open the lid as the tub is not opaque. I would have preferred a tube or something so I wouldn't have to use my fingers
FORMULA: Since the main component of this mask is sugar, it is a bit sticky and mushy to use. When I first opened my tub I actually thought it looked like a pile of poop LOL :/ It looks rock hard and thick so I was taken by surprise when I touched it and it wasn't. Although it doesn't look appealing, the scent is sort of citrusy / zesty and pleasant to smell.
DIRECTIONS & APPLICATION: After cleansing, you massage this onto a damp face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with warm water. To avoid irritation, you can add some water or toner will massaging. I don't recommend trying to apply this when your hands are wet as the sugar will just dissolve.
Using this made my skin feel reaallyyyy smooth for a couple of days. I love using it to exfoliate as the sugar granules aren't too rough on the skin and it dissolves when you massage your face. I'm not certain whether this 'brightens' the skin since I never pay attention to brightening properties and don't really care much about being whiter.
Have you tried the Black Sugar Mask or any other wash off masks from Skinfood?
