Glitter Charcoal Face Mask

Face masks aren't something I've really talked about on here before even though they're something I use regularly. I reckon a lot of you will agree that slapping on a face mask is one of the easiest ways to feel pampered with minimum effort.

It was my birthday last weekend and this mask was one of my gifts, it came at the perfect time as I was just about to stock up on peel-off masks after discovering to my horror I'd run out. It's like they knew!!

The mask is in quite a decent sized tub and comes with an applicator which is extremely handy. That's the one thing I dislike about packet masks, squeezing it out onto your hands to apply and becoming a sticky mess.

Global Beauty Care is the brand which I've seen in TKMaxx but I'm not sure if I've used anything by them before. This is a gel based formula which reaches deep into the pores to break down and draw out anything trapped in there.

I'm no expert and my main reason for reaching for charcoal masks is experience, they're kind to my skin and I like how it feels afterwards. However from what I've read there are some actual benefits to using charcoal on your skin. Charcoal is great for dislodging any dirt and grime collected in the pores which is fab on its own but also helps your pores to look smaller when they are clean. This process also helps to give the skin a brighter, smoother complexion and if the mask is peel-off it is also exfoliating at the same time. Lastly, the reason I first experimented with charcoal masks is because I heard they were good for acne prone skin, which mine is. The masks alone doesn't cure that but I do find if I use them during a breakout it leaves the problem areas looking less angry.

Just LOOK AT IT, is that not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? This mask couldn't be more perfectly suited to me, charcoal masks are often my go to, I also favour a peel-off because they're less mess and I love anything cosmic or space themed. However I have a confession to make, I have a love hate relationship with glitter. In this capacity, trapped in product it's perfect, it looks cool but can't get everywhere and ruin my life. You can all laugh at me being next time I use glitter in a makeup look and know I'm suffering for the art.

With the applicator the mask was very easy to apply, it's a thick consistency so I did a small amount at a time to make it easy to spread out. It's hard to tell from the photo but I went a little heavier on my nose so I could really peel out anything in my pores. Gross, sorry! The mask took about 20 minutes to set and came off in one piece with minimal excess to clean off. I really didn't have to use a lot at all so I'm going to get a good handful of uses out of this tub.

This mask gets full marks from me!
