I was recently contacted by Style Lux and asked if I would like to sample one of their products – Blackhead Killer mask.
This is not really a product that I would of considered using before but was happy to try it out. My pack contained five mask applications in packets of 10ml. These retail at £14.95 for all 5 packets.
Like most people I get the odd blackhead and pimple now and again but nothing too serious. The product claims to remove blackheads, pimples, impurities and excess oil in minutes. The way it works is by sucking them with the causing bacteria out of the skin whilst drying.
I was a little surprised when I opened the packet. I was expecting a white or see through cream. Instead it was jet black and rather runny and gloopy. It says to leave on for ten minutes and until it’s totally dry. Mine took slightly longer than ten minutes and my kids said I looked scary with it on. When it was finally dry the mask came off very easily.
. I didn’t manage to get a photo of myself so am using one from the Style Lux site.
After peeling off the mask my face felt much softer and cleaner. Almost like a baby’s bottom. Aswell as being a blackhead killer this product also lifts dead skin cells from the skin surface revealing fresh new skin underneath. It also kills the bacteria which causes blackheads meaning it prevents future outbreaks.
I’m not really prone to lots of blackheads and spots so unable to fully comment on its use but it definitely smooths out your skin leaving it very soft.
