This week’s mask is probably one of the more popular masks that I’ve tried. A few months ago these masks seriously went viral and everyone was filming their attempts at using the classic black peel off. I think a lot of people were just using cheap, knock off black masks rather than this Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask. I’ve been using this for a long time and I’ve never really had the same problems that people were experiencing when these masks went viral.

This Boscia mask is your typical peel off mask. You have to apply a thin but even layer across your skin. I recommend using a brush to apply this because that really helps to give you an even application. If you apply too much product in certain areas than it just ends up getting goopy and doesn’t peel off properly. I try to be super careful about where I apply this mask. If you get it too close to the edge of your face it ends up being painful in my opinion because it starts pull at all the baby hairs. I also have the same problem around my temples so I usually just avoid that area as well! I find that helps a lot with these masks to make them a less painful experience during removal.
I usually don’t keep a timer when I’m wearing this mask since it’s easy to just feel how tight your skin feels. As soon as my face starts to feel tight and stiff I know it’s time to remove the mask. I usually kind of lightly tap all over my face to see if I can feel any areas of my skin that still feel a little bit wet or moist – usually it’s in the middle of my cheek. It’s always been super easy to peel off this mask as long as you make sure it’s completely dry. I usually just stretch out my face to kind of help the mask break up a little bit so that it doesn’t feel too painful on my skin when I rip it off. As long as your patient with taking it off it shouldn’t be too difficult of a removal process.
The mask states that it’s supposed to leave skin looking luminous, bright and clear. I never really know if I see a huge difference in the overall appearance of my skin after using this. I find my skin does usually feel softer after using it but I think that’s just because it kind of peels off any dead skin or peach fuzz that I have. Sometimes my skin can even feel a little irritated after using this mask if I have acne flare ups on my skin. Which seems silly since this is supposed to help with giving you a clearer complexion.
Overall I really only use this once or twice a month because I don’t necessarily see a long term benefit with the mask. I find it basically just works the same way that an exfoliator would work with my skin. It is a really fun mask to try out but I don’t think it’s really a necessity for anyone to have in their collections!
