I was sent a tube of MABOX’s Deep Cleansing Black Mask to try out & review on my blog and since it arrived I have used it a couple of times already. I do own quite a few black masks already so I’m well stocked up on them right now but it’s always nice to try a new product out instead. I love my black masks and think they are the best thing ever for removing blackheads and blocked pores so I use them a lot. I even posted my own DIY Black Mask Tutorial earlier which was super easy to make and it actually works!

Deep Cleansing Black Mask by Mabox
The Deep Cleansing Black Mask is made in China and comes in a little box, inside is the 50g black mask tube. There is a little bit of info written on both the box and tube which includes the ingredient list and directions for use, although I must say this is written in broken English that does not make sense and there are a few grammar mistakes too.
The mask itself is sticky and black with a runny consistency, it glides easily across the skin and dries within 15-20 minutes, depending how much you apply. Care will need to be taken when applying as it is very drippy and can get messy. The mask smells slightly perfumed and almost like a solvent – quite strong.
The Black Mask helps to rid the skin from blackheads, oil, blocked pores and excessive sebum whilst exfoliating and cleansing the skin. It is recommended for all skin types especially those who suffer from blackheads. It is not recommended for use on acne, spots or inflamed skin.
How To Use It?
Steam your face with a facial steamer to open your pores or fill a bowl up with hot water and place a towel over your head to stop steam from escaping.
Dry your face and spread the mask onto your t-zone, nose, forehead, cheeks and chin or anywhere you have blackheads. Avoid the jaw line, upper lip, eyes, eyebrows and hairline.
Leave on for 15-20 minutes or until the black mask has completely dried on the skin.
Gently peel off the mask, starting from the bottom and pulling upwards
Finish by splashing the face with some cold water to close pores.

I wasn’t a big fan of the scent it had but that didn’t put me off using it. Another thing that put me off a bit was the grammar mistakes on the packaging, I know that doesn’t affect the quality of the product but I just thought they could have at last made an effort with it as it looks unprofessional and makes the product look cheap and tacky.
Although there are one or two things I don’t like about the black mask, it does do the job it’s supposed to, it works. It spread easily on the skin, dried in a reasonable amount of time and didn’t hurt like a bitch when I peeled it off. Once I removed the dried mask from my nose I could see all the sebum, junk, blackheads and dirt stuck onto the strip and my skin looked cleaner and felt soft too.
I would give this 3 stars out of 5.
