I bout this product online and was really impressed by the size of the bottle for the price. Cleansed my face, then steamed using a hot towel as I usually do before blackhead masks, and then applied it to my face. It's not very thick but did take more than half an hour to dry completely and even then when j took it off it was not coming off all at once. It did seem to pull out quite a few blackheads, however. the next morning I woke up to find my t-zone covered in tiny, red acne like bumps!! I totally freaked out and immediately set about to treat it, by exfoliating, using my rapid pimple gel and using On of my favourite clay masks for controlling my skin. However it still probably took more than a few days to disappear, especially the large amount of bumps on my forehead.

Overall, j would definitely never use this product again. I don't usually have sensitive skin so not sure if perhaps it was just my skin that reacted to the product, but I think that if you do want to go to this length to clear out blackheads, it seems a lot more safer, as I've recently read that many of these cheap masks are made of basically glue and charcoal, obviously not that great for your skin!!

I really love this mask. I bought it on a whim and I have really enjoyed it. It's easy to apply (just a little messy). I really rub it into my pores and then I put a thick layer on top of it. Doesn't take long to dry (about 30 mins). I never do a full face. Or around my hair line. It is pretty painful to pull off around the hair. I just use it on my problem areas (nose, chin and cheeks). It's worked well and I plan to buy more when I run out.

I wouldn't really use this for serious skincare but this stuff is fun. It takes a while to dry though so make sure to put on as thin of a layer as possible if you don't want to be sitting there for an hour with charcoal on your face. I love peeling it off; it's just somehow so satisfying but I don't think it actually does much. Sometimes it even hurts a little bit. If your face gets red or irritated easily this is not the thing for you.

Also, do not headbang to music while wearing this. My friend made this mistake when he tried this for the first time and got his hair in the mask. I thought this would be a given but sometimes you just can't resist rocking out, I guess!

This stuff is pretty awful. I thought I'd stick with it for a bit and not give up after the first week like I usually do. So I continued for about 5 weeks and honestly it is terrible stuff.
You have to apply a REALLY thick layer and then it takes soooo long to dry, and then after all that time the only thing that it has actually removed is flaky skin, and maybe 2 blackheads. Afterwards my skin is left with a bad rash which is still visible for a few hours. Waste of time and money!!

I bought this product in DAISO and tried the day I got home. It is so nice, you do have to put on a thick layer, I just put it on my nose and it took off all the blackheads and dead skin. It didn't hurt at all to peel off. I love this product. Only 1.50$ for so much product great deal!

I was looking for effective ways to extract blackheads and I saw someone on YouTube saying this is the best. I bought a tube from eBay and tried it. It did pull stuff off my face, but that was mostly skin flakes :( There was something that resembled blackheads, only one or two. It is hard to apply. You have to be willing to put thick layers on. It felt super sticky as you apply and take a while to dry. Maybe I wasn't good at applying, but the mask never dried evenly for me. The area around the nose didn't dry but the rest of the face started to hurt. It is super painful to peel off. I teared up every time. You have to move your face a lot to create an opening so you can peel the thing off. Some times I couldn't find an opening and I just use my nail to scrap at the edge. Other peel off masks I tried never had this problem.
The worst part is the result. It didn't get rid of the most obvious blackheads on my nose. My skin became super dry and would peel for the next week or so. It wasn't worth the pain and the irritation.

I've bought this time and time again and it is the BEST Face peel/exfoliator and leaves me with baby soft skin. I use it about once a week and it removes all my whiteheads around my nose and chin. Miracle product. Not suitable for sensitive skin though and it does hurt to remove but the results are worth it.

The one I bought is white. It sets (eventually) like latex and it kind of pills off your face. I can't work this at all.

I can't get this mask to work. It just doesn't pull out anything. I end up using pore strip afterwards and my blackheads and whiteheads came out on the strip (showing that this mask did not pull them out at all). I've also used other brand of peel off mask (strawberry sexylook) and it works so much better (probably due to the consistency and the way it sticks/dries). I'm happy that daiso is cheap, that's why I wanted to switch If anyone can get this to work, please please message me the steps/tips you guys do! Thanks!
