My thoughts on the Skinfood black sugar wash off mask
This is one of those products I really can’t get enough off. I am on my fifth tub of this one and I have also tried the Strawberry and the Honey version of it. I wrote a review of this almost five years ago and figured I would do an updated review of it.
This is a must have in my routine and I use it once a week, depending if I use a chemical peeler or not. My skin loves this product and I feel moisturized and soft as a baby’s butt after using it. I used to make my own sugar scrub with milk, honey, sugar and olive oil. But this is better. If I keep using it on a regular basis my skin doesn’t become flaky and I can’t see any dry patches. When having dry skin it is really important to exfoliate due to that you get rid of the harsh dry patches and you let the product you put on afterwards actually penetrate the surface.
The exfoliating ingredient is Brazilian black sugar. Sugar is a really good exfoliator because it melts while you massage you skin. Other ingredient like nut shells is much harsher on the skin and can cause some irritation.
Skinfood black sugar wash off mask smells like sweet citrus. It is quite strong scented but it doesn’t bother me at all, and I am usually quite sensitive to strong smells.
There is no spatula with the jar which is the only downside of this product. So make sure that your hands are clean before you dip them into the jar. The scrub is really thick but you only need a tiny bit. It is also very cheap for the amount of product you get.
I would not recommend using this if you are in the middle of a break out, due to that it can actually spread the bacteria instead. Instead use it after or before.
So after using this mask for five years it is still one of my favorite products.
I give this product 7/7
