Shiseido Black Mask

I bought some pieces of Shiseido black mask to be re-sold. Actually peel-off type mask is not my favorite, but I was curious to try this one since I heard many good reviews about it.

This mud-like mask promises to remove blackheads in just 30 minutes. It is even proclaimed as a very popular blackhead remover mask! Each pack contains 12g and can be used for 3-4 times if you use for nose area only. But you still can apply for the whole face.


Take some on finger and spread over the skin. Avoid the area around the eyes, eyebrows, hairline and lips. Wait it to dry. After the film has dried, peel it off from the outer edges toward the center. Wash your face with warm water to remove the remainder of the mask.

The mask is gel-like, black, thick, and sticky. I applied a thick layer on my face using my fingers. It was rather hard to take the mask out from its sachet since it was messy everywhere. The mask was also dried promptly thus I need to be hurry to apply it on my face otherwise it would dry soon.

It took a while before the mask dried thoroughly. The last part which dried was the area around my cheek. I touched the dried mask surface and it felt rough. I peeled it off starting from jaw line with upper ward motion. I must admit that it was very painful and very hard to peel the mask off. Be sure to avoid hairy area such as eyebrow since it might pull the hair off. But fortunately my skin was not irritated or became red. and the results are ..
  • Purified pores
  • Smooth skin surface
  • Skin was more ready for makeup in the next day
The peeling residue looks like shreds of black thin paper. I can find few blackheads scattered among the film residue. It gave me nice result so far, but I don’t know whether it is good for skin or not since it felt hurt to be removed. I prefer VOV pure black charcoal instead. It pulled the blackheads off my face successfully without painful feeling when I removed the dried film.

This mask sounds very interesting.. I want to find a good mask that can take out my blackheads too! I'm not sure I would go for this one though.. because I don't support Shiseido since it refuses to stop testing on animals =X I believe in you to speak up for yourself :) It's hard to be courageous but you gotta show yourself some love!

Say, kalo gak salah masker shiseido yg beredar ini palsu deh. soalnya masker ini udah gak diproduksi lagi sama Shiseido. Coba googling aja soalnya aku juga gak ngikutin lebih jauh. :)
