I ventured into new territory- the peel off mask. I haven’t ever used one of them before now because I’ve heard that they can actually damage the skin, but I decided to bite the bullet and see for myself. I got the e.l.f. Pore Refining Peel Off Mask because I’ve used elf products before and I trust the brand.
This shimmering black peel-off mask is supposed to strip away dirt and oil to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and reveal soft, clear looking skin. It is enriched with charcoal, witch hazel and lavender to reveal a more refined complexion.
My experience with this product is mostly a good one. I feel like it made a difference in my clogged pores and my overall complexion. It did hurt coming off, however. It wasn’t easy to remove. It didn’t peel off as one solid piece, and in some spots I had to use a cleanser to scrub off the remainder of it. But I would say the results outweigh the pain to remove. It is very fairly priced at only $8, and I will say I probably will get about 5 uses out of the bottle. And from now on I’ll use it only on my nose, chin and forehead. I don’t have large pores on my cheeks, and that’s where it hurt to remove it, so I’ll stick to using it as a spot treatment. I recommend this mask for anyone with large pores, and acneic skin.
