I think this is the third one of my face mask sheet reviews. But this time it is a Black Mask.
I’ve seen a lot of types of black mask in the market since it is rising in popularity nowadays. but somehow I found one that greatly tapped my interest.
And what I am talking about my friend is the Eight Wonders’ Choc Choc Propolis Black Mask.
This Black Mask is said to champion two types of skin care innovation.
1) Green Propolis Extract. This is an extract specially produced by bees.Such extracts are full of minerals and vitamins that lift and protects skin.
2) Bamboo Charcoal Extracts. This helps in cleansing and extracting dirt and toxins from the skin.
I actually heard and read a lot about bamboo and charcoal extracts but this is the first time I stepped out to try a product with such ingredient. The Bamboo charcoal extract is infused in the sheet which is emphasized in its black color. [but don’t worry, you won’t get charcoaled face after using this. hihihi].
Another thing we might really love about this bamboo charcoal infused sheet is that it also extracts blackheads, manages pores and prevents breakouts. It basically gives deep cleansing effects to the skin. The sheet can actually stay moist for hours because of its cotton material. And the best thing is this material actually adheres to the skin well. It makes walking around the house possible. Or even watching TV while having this on is no problem since it doesn’t fall down when you sit down.
This is also known as the “golden bee mask”. This is because the product uses bees especially hailed from Brazil to extract the propolis essences… Thus they don’t only give moisture and improve skin texture but it has Artepillin C extracts that further firms and give antioxidants to the skin.
What we see in the pack is a label that says “Green Propolis Extract 20,000ppm”. You are quite confused on what this means right? So I went to search a little bit of that technical term. “Parts per million” is this term’s meaning, or can be translated as mg/L. It only means that we get that much propolis extract in each mask.
At the back of the pack, we see an illustrated instruction on how to use the mask. It’s basically the same as the normal way of cleansing first, apply toner, place the mask sheet on for 10-20 minutes and have a bright and clear skin right after. I’m just very attracted to this little illustration on step3 with the sparkle sparkle drawing around it. The moment I took off my mask and let the remaining essence absorb off, I was actually surprised how bright looking my face is. It immediately reminded me of this little chibi illustration with a sparkle sparkle. I just thought that chibi is me. sparkling bright face it is! hahahah!
The scent is another thing I found really different. I have this weird and overpowering scent in it yet it is very relaxing at the same time. I am actually trying to figure out the scent but I can’t exactly say what. Though it reminds me of a scented candle; either jasmine or chamomile scent. I still really don’t know.
I slightly talked about what we see in the packaging above. But let’s try to look at it more shall we. The packaging is kind of minimalist. and I like it. The only colors we see is a matte black and a metallic gold that balances it. The front is in black and gold prints and the back of it is an opposite of gold and black prints. [I actually liked that aesthetic].
I give it a perfect score rating because it actually gives us a visible and impressive result. I seriously still can’t get over the fact that I was reminded of that sparkling chibi illustration the moment I took a look at the mirror. Even though I found the scent a little weird, I still give it a perfect rating because it’s quite addictive and nice.
Although this might be the first of all the black masks in the market that I have tried, I already can say I put my love and trust to this black baby. And I recommend you use it too!
Did you know Kpop group BLOCKB are the official endorsers of this “Golden Bee Mask”? I was actually ecstatic knowing BlockB are endorsing this mask. Such perfect image for the boys I believe. “Honey Bees” is the name of their fandom. One more reason to love and really purchase this Black Mask! Well, just look at the boys’ skin. too perfect isn’t it?
