Here’s a twist on Skinfood’s Black Sugar Mask: the Black Sugar Honey Mask! This has been out for a while, but I finally got around to trying it out myself.
There are three products in the “Sugar Mask Wash Off” line: the original Black Sguar, Strawberry, and this post’s Black Sugar Honey. The original Black Sugar Mask is still sold in its original Comic Sans MS packaging! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Skinfood’s website seems slightly embarrassed of it, though, and hides the Black Sugar Mask’s packaging like this:
Please note that the containers are totally not that full of product!
The container has a plastic screw-top that is easily removable. No struggling with an overly tightened screw-top here.
The Black Sugar masks, from left to right: the original mask, the strawberry mask, and the honey mask. You can see how the honey mask on the right-hand side is a lighter brown than the black-sugar-only mask on the left.
The mask does not come with a spatula or scoop, so you do have to use your own. I do not recommend reaching in with your fingers and scooping out product, due to contamination. There’s probably several months’ worth of once-daily usage in there, for one person.
The spoon I’m using in this picture is a 2.5 mL spoon (1⁄2 teaspoon), and that’s plenty for the whole face.
It spreads out thickly. After first splashing my face with water, over the sink or in the shower, I usually pat it on my face in a layer like this. You can see the sugary grains in this photo – they’re totally scratchy even after being slightly diluted with water. I’m not really a fan of the scratchy/grainy texture.
After washing off, I can still smell the mask, and it’s a really nice smell to walk around with. It does leave a slight coating on my skin – sugar? honey? moisturizer? oil? I’m not sure, but I do know that I don’t have to use as much moisturizer afterwards.
This is a fun product, and smells lovely – and if it gets on your lips, tastes great, too. It’s a fun product but after two weeks of use, I didn’t feel like it changed anything. While it absolutely is a cool thing to treat myself to, or to give as a gift – I’ll probably move on to the next fun thing after this.
