I do use a peel-off mask once in a blue moon. The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Impurity Removing Nose Pack is my second tube. I didn’t finish the first tube(bought in 2019), of course. Still had half tube I think because I didn’t use much. Not even once a month. It had expired so I decided to get a new tube.
Since I didn’t do a review on it here and I’ve been using it for so long. I’ll share my experience with you. I usually used it around my chin, nose, and forehead area. Apply it to the area you want after washing your face. Then wait for it to dry off. It usually took about 1/2 hour or so for the product on the sides of the nose to completely dry off. Other areas took about 15 minutes.
Once it’s all dried. Peel it off. Be sure to support the skin around it while you peel it off. It’s painful as you all know if you’ve experienced using such kind of product before. Then again, do it fast, it’s not too bad once you got used to it. At least it is less painful than extractions which I hate so much. Had bad experiences with the procedure and left some damage on my face.
Anyway… Back to the peel-off mask.
Here! The one on the nose. Can you see those gunk? Mind you, these are not blackheads as many people had claimed. It is actually sebaceous filaments. I have plenty of these and it annoys me more than blackheads *LOL* It is a natural part of your pore that keeps your skin healthy and moisturized.
However, removing them once in a while does no harm at all because sometimes it just makes the skin looks rough and makeup won’t be able to go on smoothly. I only used the nose pack when I feel that my skin feels and looks rough. Just don’t overdo it. Once in a blue moon will do.
Here… From the chin(left) and middle of the forehead(right).
The mask actually pulls out those annoying and unsightly fine and black facial hair too. The one on the right managed to get rid of fine hair in between my brows aside from the gunk.
Remember to tone and moisturize the area thoroughly after you used the peel-off mask. The best is to follow with a sheet mask that contains soothing properties then proceed with your usual skincare routine.
Whatever that was pulled out from Jeju Volcanic Lava Impurity Removing Nose Pack wasn’t too bad for not doing it for half a year.
