Let me start off by saying that this is one of my Holy Grail beauty products. I am so excited to tell you guys about it, as it is a product I have been using for years now and will probably use for the rest of my life. I truly think the Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask is in a league of its own when it comes to exfoliating products.
But that is just my humble opinion, and of course, everyone has different preferences. But I mean, there is a reason that this is a cult Korean beauty product and one of Skinfood’s bestsellers.
I actually briefly mentioned this product is my recent post about exfoliating, which you can read here. If you’re not sure how much you need to exfoliate, and what products are best for you, then I’d give that a read.
How it Works:
The formula for this product is amazing. When you first take it out the tub, it is like a thick brown sugar scrub. It is by no means something you would expect to hydrate the skin. You only need the tiniest of amounts, as it spreads very easily across damp skin.
This is product is actually meant to be used as a mask. As you gently massage the product into damp skin, the sugar dissolves. This means that it is not too harsh and won’t cause damage from over exfoliating.
After massaging, you leave the product on your face for 10 minutes. During this time, the hydrating formula in the product actually moisturises your face as it sets! Seeing as exfoliating usually leaves my skin feeling tight and dry, this is a complete revelation.
I think it’s fairly obvious that I am absolutely in love with this product. It’s something I have repurchased a couple of times now, and because it’s so hydrating, I have never been tempted to stray to a different exfoliating scrub.
One of the best parts is a tub lasts for so long, because a little goes a long way, and because it should only be used once a week.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this product to anyone.
So if you’ve tried this product, or if there is any exfoliating products that you love, I’d love to know in the comments!
