Daiso mask, Daiso blackhead mask, charcoal mask

If you haven’t heard about charcoal masks, you are either :-

a)  A beauty noob!  In that case, I would advise you to subscribe to my beauty blog right now!  *shameless plug alert*


b)  A very very lucky girl with flawless skin with no blackheads and no pores!  I hate you!  Nah, just joking…I envy you!!!

Anyway, charcoal masks contain charcoal (duh!) which help draw out impurities from skin and unclog pores.  Sounds awesome, right?  Well, I have been trying out a couple of charcoal masks and here’s my review of the Daiso Charcoal Mask in the Get or Forget format.

Get Daiso Charcoal Mask if :-

  • You have a local Daiso store (I do!  And my mask only cost me AU$2.80 :P)
  • You have enlarged pores
  • You have blackheads
  • Your boyfriend / husband has enlarged pores and blackheads (it’s fun to do the mask on them too!)

Forget Daiso Charcoal Mask if :-

  • You don’t have a local Daiso store (I am sorry!)
  • You are a skincare snob and using a cheapie skincare product gives you the heebie-jeebies!  Go and spend your money on expensive shizz instead 😛

Daiso Charcoal Mask is really easy to use but it is ultra-messy because black goop can get everywhere and it is impossible to remove…until it is dry which depends on how thick you apply the mask.  Peeling the dried mask from my nose was so satisfying…and it was even more satisfying to see all the gunk and blackheads it removed from my nose.  YES!  I bet it would be great for those with ‘bacne’ (= back acne) too.

Have you tried charcoal masks before?  And how awesome is Daiso, huh?

    Wonder if this could be a dupe for the Kose Sekkisho (can’t remember the spelling) Whitening Mask. I reviewed it previously and loved the bang out of it.

      @Helz Nguyen, Sometimes I find that I like products after using them for the umpteenth time 🙂

    Super love daiso. We’re lucky girls to have easy access to daiso in our countries!

      @Bun Bun Makeup Tips, Ah yes! And it’s so much cheaper in Malaysia! How can they sell so cheap though?

    I do have a Daiso Shop but I was always reluctant to buy any skincare from them, it is so cheap that it didn’t inspire me confidence….until now (obviously) 🙂
    You made me really curious!

      @Livia, Yay! Curiosity killed the cat though 😛
