What is Skinfood Black Sugar Masks
The Skinfood black sugar mask are exfoliating masks that you apply on a wet face. Massage into your skin and then you leave it for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes are up you rinse the face with lukewarm water and then apply you skincare as normally.
I have tried all three different versions of this mask and I really think that all of them are great but there are differences between them and I do have a favorite.
The three versions of this are
Black Sugar Mask
Black Sugar Strawberry Mask
Black Sugar Honey Mask
Description of the three masks
Black Sugar Mask Wash Off (Click for a full review)
An exfoliating and hydrating mask wash off with black sugar granules. Black sugar is rich in vitamins and minerals and restores nutrients and moisture to skin. The mask leaves skin moisturized, soft, and free of dead skin cells.
Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash Off (Click for a full review)
A fresh strawberry twist on the classic mask. Strawberry seeds and sugar granules exfoliate skin, while strawberry extracts nourish and moisturize skin. This mask leaves a soft strawberry scent and a smooth, clear face.
Black Sugar Honey Mask Wash Off (Click for a full review)
A mask wash off featuring organic black sugar granules for exfoliation, and rich honey that softens skin for a clean, smooth complexion. This mask leaves skin nourished with a honey kissed glow.
When looking at the masks ingredients there are a few differences which is expected since there are different mask:-). Still just wanted to put them together just to see.

How often shall one exfoliate?
This is a really hard question to answer. But if you look at my skin type as an example. I have super dry skin and if I don’t exfoliate my skin will look really bad, with dry patches on my skin.
The dry patches stops the products I apply to my skin from penetrating. Making them totally useless to me. But when I exfoliate my products penetrates the skin and I do get benefits from the products I use.
So, exfoliating is really important if you have dry skin.
As a guideline I usually say to exfoliate once a week (with this type of product) but you should always listen to your skin and what might work for me, might not work for you.
Differences between the masks
There is a huge difference between these masks, at least according to me and mainly the difference is the exfoliating properties. When I look at the regular one, it is quite harsh on the skin (therefore you need to wet your face before applying it). But it does an amazing job in exfoliating my skin. After washing my face, my skin feels so moisturized and soft. This was the first mask I’ve tried from this line and I was so happy with this product that I actually finished 3 more tubs of it.
The strawberry version smells so heavenly that it is hard not eating it. I don’t think that it does as great of a job in exfoliating my skin as the regular version. And my skin doesn’t feel as moisturized when I wash it of either. But it is a really nice mask. Due to that it contains strawberry I think this one is better for normal to oilier skin types. But it works for my skin as well. Just not as amazingly as the regular version.
The honey version is the version I actually likes the least. This is due to that it doesn’t do such a good job in exfoliating my skin. I think this is because the honey dissolves some of the sugar crystals.This causes me to have to work harder in massaging my skin to get an exfoliating effect. If you have sensitive skin this might be great and enough for your skin. As for moisturizing properties my skin feels moisturized after washing it off.
So which one is my favorite?
The regular one is the one I simply love and don’t want to be without. It does an amazing job in exfoliating my skin and makes my skin feel really moisturized after washing it off.
Regular: Great in exfoliating and great in moisturizing (perfect for dry skin)
Strawberry: Great in exfoliating, not so great in moisturizing (good for normal to oily skin)
Honey: Not great in exfoliating but great in moisturizing. (good for sensitive, dry and normal skin types).
