The product comes is semi transparent tub. It has the label printed over and across it. The labels are water resistant which won’t become soggy and ugly if kept in moist, wet places. There is an inner spill-proof tight secure lid. You really need to close the inner lid properly and it takes a bit time to get it right. If there is even slight loose end, the outer lid wont fit which is really annoying. I’ve faced this issue with all their products. If you are in a hurry, you might even leave it unclosed which may spoil the product. But if done properly, it’s really amazing. You need to give some time to close it properly. Travel friendly and travel efficient.
Charcoal products are not very good smelling and I was not expecting this to smell good. There is mention of fragrance in the ingredients list but I was honestly expecting something pleasant. The smell of this is so so so perfume-y that irritates the hell out of me. I’m very sensitive to particular smells and this is one of them. All their recent mask launches have very artificial perfume-y smell and it can be very annoying. The smell lingers even after you wash the face for some time.
You can call me smart or a fool but I gave this mask a try by using it everyday for a week as the name suggests. This is easy to apply using fingers but would suggest a brush for even, hygienic layer. I would suggest it every alternate day or twice a week.
The gel is of right consistency, it’s neither to thick nor to thin. The gel is smooth and doesn’t contain any lumps or granules.
The first time I used this, there was irritation on my skin which I don’t usually have but it was quite bothering. It is mentioned on the label that herbal products do cause irritation so I chose to ignore it. But the irritation added with fragrance was making me restless. Second time, the irritation was reduced. I really couldn’t tell if this mask was working for me or not so I tried to use it everyday. Still I didn’t find any major results.
It is a good cleansing mask but I don’t think it is true to all it’s claims. It doesn’t help with acne nor with black and white heads. It doesn’t make your skin look like you’ve done something special. It does not stain the face like most charcoal mask do. It is easy to take off.
For the price you are paying, this is not the mask you expect. So, this is a complete pass on my side and I would not recommend this to anyone.
