Welcome to blogmas day 16.
Let me start by saying that it would be my first and last time ever!!
If you’re keeping up with the blog, you’ll know I’m trying to get my skin in a proper shape so I’ve been gathering some products together to start a proper routine. My mum randomly gave me a charcoal peel off mask last week and when I saw what it claimed to do, I was super excited to try it out.
Deep cleansing peel off mask removes dulling surface cells and impurities while vitamins and plant extracts soften the skin to restore a youthful glow.

So I cleansed my face to get it prepped for the mask. I read the instructions and proceeded to apply the mask on my face. I let it sit for the required 15 minutes and by then it had dried and the mask was giving my skin a tightening feel, and I was like…’this thing is really working oh’. When it got to the removal process, that’s where the trouble was.
I honestly didn’t expect the pain I felt while tearing off the mask from my skin. I was torn between continuing to tear it off or try washing it off with water, but that was out of the question so I took a mini break then gathered all the strength I had and continued the process.
When I finally took everything off, I was happy. But my skin was feeling really hurt and irritated so I had to splash cold water on my face before it felt better. At that point I wished that I still had rosewater but I had run out of rosewater so I skipped using the toner I usually use because it’s an astringent and made a green tea toner, and it further helped to soothe the irritating feel.
I’m over peel off masks. I’ll stick to using clay masks because that’s just better for my skin.
Do you know any affordable, budget friendly hydrating mask that I can try? And hydrating toners too.
Thanks for reading.
Have you used a peel off mask before? What was your experience?
