03 Sep Review, Ingredients, Photos, Skincare Trend 2017, 2018: Blaq Meteor Shower Scrub, Blaq Mask Tube
Blaq is an Australian skincare brand. Blaq products are built around the core ingredient, activated charcoal, and are formulated to solve skin problems. You know, evidence of late-nights and city-living, perhaps one too many wines. The products seek to detoxify and nurture your skin back to a healthy state. The Blaq line is suitable for all skin types – from dry and dehydrated to oily and congested.
The Meteor Shower Scrub is not only superiorly novel and fun to use, it’s 100% safe and tested. It will leave your skin feeling smooth and supple with an iridescent look. Blaq states the scrub is not targeted at one specific gender but rather is perfect for anyone who wants their skin to be in luminous, peak form.
This is a peel off mask and it is black. So, it’s important to start with fresh, clean skin that has just been washed and dried. You want your pores to be open. Apply an even layer to your problem areas but be sure to avoid your lips, hairline, and eyebrows. Wait 15-20 minutes for the mask to dry. Then, starting at the bottom outer edge, slowly peel off the mask in an upward direction.
I’ve used other activated charcoal masks and I’ve got to say that this one was much more powerful than the others I’ve personally tried. The scent is again, fresh and natural, as is the Meteor Shower Scrub. If you’re sensitive to scents, I don’t think either of these will bother you at all. I applied the mask on freshly cleansed and dried skin and left it on for 20 minutes. For reference, my skin type is oily and acne-prone.
I used the mask on my entire face but you can certainly limit this to problem prone areas. I did notice my face was a little flushed in certain areas after removing the mask. (The Blaq website indicates that may happen.) Not to worry though because the redness subsided within 20 minutes or so. Also, the mask easily washes off with water if you accidentally get it on your clothes or too close to your hairline/eyebrows. It also doesn’t stain so that’s a plus.
