Black Pearl Age-Control Pearl Peeling Mask
A delicate deep cleansing mask with the added moisturising benefits of Japanese oils. The mask exfoliates, removing dead skin cells, and provides extra nourishment to give the skin a refreshed radiant glow.
What we say:
I was crazy about this mask even before I tried it, for the simple reason that the product looks like pale purple crushed pearls. It’s shimmery and glowy, and absolutely beautiful, plus it comes in such a stunning black and transparent tub.
But before I get carried away with the packaging, I’ll focus on the actual product. I applied it to my cleansed skin and I was quite surprised at the texture. It is slightly grainy (even though you’d never think it just by looking at the product) and extremely thick – I was amazed at how much it spread and how little product I needed to cover my whole face.
To my delight, the pearly silver-purple colour of the face mask looked exactly the same colour on my skin as it does in the jar. I left it on for about 15 minutes, and it didn’t cause any tightness like some masks do. I had dried however, and I found that when I tried to rinse it off, it didn’t come off straight away. As I massaged my skin with water, it was almost as if the mask melted, and it became like a rich moisturiser. After a couple of minutes I removed the remains of the product with warm water and a sponge.
My skin felt incredible afterwards. Not only was it soft and hydrated, but it was glowing – and I’ve never experienced that with an at-home face mask before! I think this product is perfect to use before an event like a wedding or a special dinner – it definitely adds a post-facial-like radiance.
