Hello Darlings, Dudelings and everyone in between!
This first impression is in no shape or form sponsored. These are my words and honest opinions.
Sorry for the late post guys, I’ve been out all day, hunting down the easter bunny with only a bottle of ketchup and a semi roasted hot dog!
So, it’s time for another first impression!
Not so long ago a sweet sensation of a face scrub found it’s way into my shopping cart, and from there all the way in to my bathroom shelf, filled with K-beauty lovelies!
I am of course talking about the highly praised Skinfood Black Sugar Mash Wash Off!
Doesn’t get more classy than placing the product in an easter egg, right?
Anyways, let’s get this egg rollin!
Name: Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off
Product: Exfoliating scrub
Good for: Manual exfoliation, makes your skin babybooty smooth and gives it a glow.
Price: 8-13$ (Ebay, Jolse, Bbcosmetic)
Ingredients: Sucrose, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Clycerin, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Macademia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Lanolin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Laurate, Butylparaben, BHT, Caramel, Parfum.
First off, let’s start with how one would slap this sugary goo on your face!
Apply after washing, do not put this product in your eyes or mouth, it smells amazing but believe it or not, you’re not supposed to consume it! If you have sensitive skin you can alternatively mix the mask with water or oil to reduce the chance of turning this sweet experience into an extremely sour one. And if you wake up one day and decide that you want a lighter scrub, the whole mixing with oil or water thing works for that purpose as well! Massage it in, let it work it’s magic for 10-15 minutes before you wash it off. I would not recommend using it more than 2 times a week, but each to it’s own!
The consistency of this product is as one would expect; sugary, a semi thick paste with sugar grains in it, it’s lovely and if you are silly enough to rub it between your fingers it will tickle!
It smells really good, like sweet black sugar, so the name fits perfectly with the scent, go figure!
What do I think of it so far?
So far I really like it, I’ve already used it twice and my skin hasn’t raged even a fraction of what I thought it might! A few purging spots have occurred, but it’s a small price to pay for the services it’s done. This black sugary beauty will go permanently in my routine once a week, because it really get’s the dirt out and leaves your face smooth and ready for pampering! And have you looked at the price? 8 dollars! That’s an extremely reasonable sugar high if you ask me.
So that’s what I think so far, and there will probably be more sweet talk about this when it’s been tested, sniffed, poked and applied even more!
Have you tried this, and what did you feel about it?
