The £2 Face Mask.

After reviewing a previous blackhead face mask, I needed one that was tube ready instead of sachet. Off to eBay I went & came across Shills. A company that's been on the scene for a while and it was very budget friendly at just over £2, this could be good or bad thing. It contains carbon - you may of seen people on YouTube lately doing a D.I.Y blackhead mask using glue + activated charcoal, don't let them put you off - and it's good to remove blackheads, fine hairs, dirt & dead skin.

Ingredients
Activated charcoal (bamboo charcoal), oat extract, grapefruit, vitamin B5, rosemary extract, calendula extract, vitamin A, vitamin E, citrus skin Extract.

As mentioned several times before,I have combination skin - oily & normal (sometimes Winter, dry) but it's controllable but one thing I have noticed is in the last few years, I've started to get little blackheads on my nose. I find masks like this helps to eliminate them temporarily. I will use a brush and apply it all over my face, being careful of my nose ring (facial piercings people - beware) I leave it to dry for about 30 minutes, you can see when it's dry as it becomes more matte in texture and the face gets more tighter. I find a corner to start peeling, normally from under my chin - it's recommended to peel from the chin up but I have also done it from the forehead down.

The results are, a face free of oil, pretty smooth and clean feeling & no blackheads. Simply moisturise afterwards and I rejoice in clean skin. I think if you have sensitive or dry skin, this mask might not be the best as it's going to irritate. All other skin types may benefit especially those who have large, congested pores, blackheads or want to eliminate oil.

  4. £2 for any old face mask is cheap - but to get a half decent one that unclogs pores too - yes please!
