The hottest skincare color right now is black
Mask Month is still going strong over here at IBB HQ, and last week it dawned on me that it’s been quite some time since I did a peel-off mask. Unlike traditional gel- or cream-based masks, peel-off versions come along with a sense of satisfaction—and the challenge of trying to get the whole thing off in one piece (which rarely happens). I was in luck that I had just received Blaq’s signature Mask, so off I went.
As you can see, this mask is really black, and I’m happy I tried it when I was home alone as not to scare my husband or child. After slathering on a layer, I sat down at my desk to catch up on emails and let the activated charcoal purge my pores. After letting it dry, I went in for the peel, and while it left me with noticeably clarified skin I would definitely apply a thicker layer next time to make the peel-off process a bit easier.
I also received the Hydrogel Eye Masks, and figured I’d give them a whirl while I was writing this post. The consistency is similar to other eye patches, and the blend of activated charcoal and hyaluronic acid did an amazing job at de-puffing and smoothing out the fine lines around my morning eyes. Note to self: Do eye masks in the morning more often.
This innovative line also offers regular and shimmery body scrubs, cleansing wipes and a teeth-whitening wand, and you guessed it… They’re all black, really fun to use and perfect for messing with your family!
