Beauty Abroad: The Skin Food Black Sesame Hot Mask Review
Just a word to the wisest, Sasa has updated its Skin Food line up and ALOT of stuff is in stock at the moment and at reasonable prices. Granted, they aren’t retail by any means but way cheaper than E-bay that’s for shiz. Check it here.
A reader requested a review of the Skin Food Black Sesame Hot Mask a while back ago, sorry bit delayed here, and I’m checking getting around to it.
Jump ahead to hear it!
What is it?
The Skin Food Black Sesame Hot Mask a heating mask that opens up pores with salt, sugar, and black sesame.
As with most Skin Food Masks I find I’m never disappointed. This is a rather fab little mask, not my favorite by any means but quite nice. It smells like a cross of dirt and peanut butter but try not to worry too much as the smell isn’t necessarily unpleasant simply earthy, believe me if it doesn’t bother me (I’m a nitpicker when it comes to smells), it probably won’t bother you. Its a thick, sticky gross looking mask that’s gray in color and very unappealing. To use it you simply apply to a damp face and massage on. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse. The mask basically softens skin and gently exfoliates leaving your face smoother and hydrated. I suggest following up with moisturizer after.
Honestly, appearance wise its not the prettiest mask around that’s for sure plus combined with its unusual smell you may want to skip. I was kinda disappointed that it doesn’t heat up all that much at all, I could barely feel it.
Who might like it?
- Skin Food Mask fans.
- Anyone who wants a gentle exfoliation to remove dry skin on their face.
Who might not like?
- Folks that are sensitive to smell and the looks of a product.
- Anyone who thinks this is going to do a super great job of cleaning out their pores (it probably won’t).
As I mentioned above I generally like Skin Food masks and I enjoyed using this one. I don’t have an exfoliating mask from the line so on occasion when my skin is busy being dry and flaky this comes in handy however its not my favorite Skin Food Mask by any means. Quite nice but I wouldn’t trip all over myself to repurchase it as I have a few other Skin Food Masks that I like way better.
Fav Skin Food Masks?
This is available from Sasa for $12.90 which is about 50% marked up from its original price however still the best deal on the Internet if you’re not wanting to go through E-bay.
