Product Review: Saizen Charcoal Masque


Good morning everyone! I'm sorry I've been MIA. I've been so busy lately but today I have some time. Today is a holiday but the world doesn't stop turning for me since I'll be following my usual schedule for the day. But before that, let me leave you with a review of Saizen Charcoal Masque.

After reading a lot of raves in Girltalk, I just had to try it out. It's a masque that's supposed to take out whiteheads and blackheads. Being a gal with really oily skin, I'm very prone to skin impurities so I badly need stuff like these. I was able to try it out for the first time and I was surprised because it really did a good job of removing whiteheads. I didn't expect that there would be nothing left (that would be asking too much considering my skin type) but it was still able to remove a good amount.

At first I wasn't sure how to use it, like if I needed to wash it off or peel it off. Thank goodness my sister can read Japanese and she told me it's most likely to be peeled off.

This masque works better than other nose packs I tried such as Biore, IWhite and Bench plus the added bonus is that you can use it on your whole face or just in your nose or T-zone, depending on your problem. The tube is quite small and you do need a lot of product to make the masque black, so I think one tube will last me about 5-7 uses only if I use it on my whole face. Thank goodness the price tag makes me happy!

So here is my rundown of pros and cons:

PROS
  • Cheap at P85 (less than $2)!
  • Does a good job at removing blackheads and whiteheads

CONS
  • Only available in Saizen, which has only one branch so far (Robinson's Galleria)
  • Stocks are so hard to come by! Seriously.
  • It can hurt when taking it out (I actually teared up!)

TIPS
  • Take it off right away once it dries because it can hurt!
  • Make sure the masque is black and not just almost black because a thick layer removes the whiteheads and blackheads better
  • Keep it away from your eyes, mouth and your hair parts such as your eyebrows and upper lip because it hurts more if it goes through the hair.

Will I buy this again? Definitely!
