A review of Shills Deep Cleansing Black Mask
January 22, 2017
I have seen Shills Black Mask ALL over Facebook and I needed to find out what all the fuss was about.
I LOVE skincare products and if something catches my eye, I have to try it!
This is the jet black peel off, all singing, all dancing mask that pulls all the gunk out your skin. The advert looks awesome and literally shows the mask pulling every single blackhead and blocked pore out, it’sa bit disgusting to look at but strangely satisfying.
I had to give it a go on someone and my husband Andrew agreed to let me loose on his skin.
I purchased the new and improved formula from Amazon for £12.99, I will pop the link at the bottom of this blog post.
This deep cleansing mask is made from activated charcoal which removes impurities and helps to control oil. The mask is purifying and refining and peels off removing dead skin and cleaning out debris from the pores.
Black Face Mask claims to be made from natural ingredients and claims to visibly remove blackheads, leaving your skin cleaner and more refined.
As it’s name suggests, the mask is completely black so you can see if there are any areas you have missed. The texture is slightly sticky and the mask sets quite quick so you need to apply fairly quickly.
I thought the mask smelt slightly of Witch Hazel which is a nice clean, slightly medicated smell. It smelt how you would expect a deep cleaning product to smell.
After five minutes, Andrew was saying he didn’t like it and it felt tight but if you are a hardened facialist like myself, you will like this feeling as it means the mask is working. I was cruel and made him wait the full 25 minutes suggested in the directions on the box! If you are going to be my test subject Mr, you’ve got to see it through to the finish!
Ladies if you want pay back on your men, this would be a fantastic torture tool of choice, just saying! If you would like to see what I mean, I have popped the video of the first stage of removal on the ‘Spoonfuls of Glitter’ Instagram and Twitter page, It would not come off at first!
After lots of turning the air blue with “FFS your ripping my face off” and “Aghhhhh Jen, it hurts get off me!” The mask was off, it sure gets a good grip of the skin but he obviously does not get the no pain, no gain motto when it comes to some beauty treatments! I of course found the whole pulling off part hilarious as any dutiful wife would!
I had high expectations for this mask and considering how much it clung to the skin, it did not pull out half as much gunk as I had hoped it would. Sure there was visible dead skin and debris but nothing like the adverts I have been seeing.
However, Andrews skin did look cleaner and more refined and it felt silky smooth, he could also notice the difference and said his skin felt really fresh and clean.
If you want a good exfoliation and deep clean then this is the mask for you, just do not expect the results displayed on the adverts or you will be disappointed.
