Aarrt Charcoal Black Peel Off Mask Review

Hello dear people! ❀❀❀
I hope you all are doing great! πŸ™‚

When it comes to facial cleansing, one of the most annoying parts of it is removing the nasty blackheads! No matter how much you steam or scrub, they just keep clinging onto your face, unaffected by everything… πŸ™
I have been suffering from the stubborn blackheads on my nose for ever and so, when I came across this charcoal peel off mask by Aarrt a few months back, which claimed to do a lot more than just removing the blackheads (as mentioned on Amazon), I knew I had to try it out! πŸ˜›

Today, I am reviewing the same for you all! Read on to know if it stood up to its claims or disappointed me completely… πŸ˜€

Step 1: Clean face with hot towel for 3-5 minutes or get steam and dry your skin with no remains of moisture.

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:

Aarrt charcoal black peel off mask comes in a simple, black coloured plastic tube packaging with a screw-on cap on the top. The tube is quite durable and can bear a lot of pressure without rupturing or leaking which makes it really travel friendly… It further comes packed inside a cardboard box which contains all the details about the product mentioned over it. (The tube, too, contains most of the necessary details, so, you need not worry about losing the box! πŸ˜› )
The only issue that I have with the packaging is the size of the opening at the mouth of the tube… The 3mm wide hole present, in my opinion, is too small to squeeze out any quantity of this thick and gummy mask, with ease! :-/

The mask, as the name suggests, is completely black in colour and has a really thick consistency… The texture of the mask resembles that of a dollop of slightly hardened gum/glue and it is quite difficult to spread the mask evenly on the skin.
The mask has a pleasant and soothing fragrance which is quite mild and wouldn’t bother the sensitive noses… It also provides a mild cooling sensation to the skin which lasts until the mask gets dry!

One can either use the mask directly on freshly cleansed skin (cleansed and dried) or can get some steam before using the mask – both ways, the results are the same. I have used the mask once on my entire face and around 6 to 7 times on my T-zone… I don’t have a hairy face and still, this mask gave me a very hard time while I was trying to peel it off! It just got stuck on to a few baby hairs that I had around my cheeks and I had to wash it off at last… (So, beware if you have facial hair! :P) Also, I finished almost 1/3rd of the tube trying to cover my whole face, so, I feel that one tube of 60g would hardly last for 4-5 uses, if used for the entire face!
I have also observed that after application, the mask starts to shrink at places, leaving tiny gaps in between and if you touch the mask to fix it, it just leaves the skin and sticks onto the fingers, creating a mess… The mask takes around 10 to 15 minutes to get completely dry and it can be peeled off with ease if it is applied only to the T-zone!

This peel off mask effectively peels off oil and impurities from the surface of the skin as well as from deep within the pores and also removes dead skin cells to some extent… But it completely fails to deliver when it comes to peeling off blackheads or whiteheads! I have used it for quite a few times and never for once did I see even one of my blackheads come out… Additionally, during winters, when my oily skin gets a little dry, this mask leaves my face severely dry and somewhat flaky! So, in my opinion, this mask is not at all suitable for people with drier skin types!
People with combination to oily skin types may use this mask to get rid of the oil and grime from their faces, but if you are looking for something to help you get rid of the blackheads or whiteheads, this mask is not for you…
Also, it doesn’t provide any brightening effect that it claims and I feel that a basic homemade gram flour mask would do as much (or maybe even more) for the skin as this peel off mask!

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:

PROS:
1. Available online on Amazon at a discounted price.
2. Durable, leak-proof and travel-friendly packaging.
3. Has a mild and pleasant fragrance.
4. Provides a cooling sensation to the skin after application.
5. Gets completely dry within 10 to 15 minutes of application and is easy to peel off, if not applied to the hairy areas.
6. Peels off the dead skin cells to some extent and removes every bit of oil and grime from the surface of the skin as well as from within the pores.
7. Doesn’t breakout the skin.

CONS:
1. The opening of the tube is too small to squeeze out the product with ease.
2. Contains alcohol and paraben.
3. Difficult to spread on the skin, becomes messy and transfers a lot if touched when the mask is semi-dry.
4. Peeling off the mask hurts a lot if the skin is even a bit hairy.
5. Doesn’t help to get rid of blackheads or whiteheads at all!
6. Leaves drier skin types extremely dry, post use.
7. A tube of 60g would hardly last for 4-5 uses if used for the entire face.

RATING: 3/5

FINAL TAKE: Aarrt charcoal black peel off mask, in my opinion, is a regular peel off mask which does effectively remove oil and impurities and some amount of dead skin cells from the face but fails to do anything when it comes to removing blackheads or whiteheads, which is actually the main issue for which people turn towards peel off masks! If you have a combination to oily skin type and just want something to suck out all the oil and grime from within your pores, you may give this mask a try, otherwise, I feel that there are quite better masks/scrubs out there for each and every skin type in the same price range…

Hope it helps! ❀

  1. This is a good, detailed and very honest review I must say! Having Normal-Dry skin, I was contemplating trying charcoal products, just because frankly, these are the only ads one sees these days – so it is good precaution that I read your review and say that it won’t suit me, and also if it doesn’t do what its main claim is, then why spend this kind of money! Then a homemade mask may be more beneficial for me at least!

  2. Now that’s the kind of feedback I look to read. Not that it doesn’t do what it’s meant to do but you being clear abt it’s pros and cons.

  3. This is a candid review. have not tried this particular brand, though charcoal is good for the skin, have another one which I need to try out. It would have been good if the peel helped remove blackheads too.

  4. Currently there are so many charcoal based products in the market that claim to remove blackheads completely. However, I haven’t found any that has worked for me yet. Wish this one was top notch.

  5. Charcoal products are highly in demand now due to its ability to act like a magnet to attract and absorb dirt…would try this out

  6. This is something my sister would love. Peel off masks are her fave and those with charcoal gets rid of the skin impurities.

  7. This will help keep my face free of dirt. I am looking forward to using this.Very balanced review which will help many.

  8. I see there is no point of using a peel off mask if it does not even extract out blackheads. It looks like an average product. Thanks for the review. I will not waste my money on it.

  9. That’s such an honest review Mrinal. Though charcoal products are good for the skin and help clarify. surprised to see this doesn’t work on blackheads. I normally use baking soda paste for quick blackhead removal

  10. As soon as we see charcoal masks, we think it would be detoxifying and will remove all gunk out of our pores. Wish this one was as good as expected. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  11. What a detailed review! I think I will wait and watch before buying because there are lot of cons too with this product.

  12. While i love a mask that removes impurities..for me blackhead removal is a must of it is a peel.off mask. I love the fact that is hard to pull out but i felt like it makes the skin too dry

  13. Thank you for this review. If the product fails to remove blackheads and whiteheads, then I don’t think I’ll purchase it.
