Life Brand Charcoal Peel-Off Mask: A quick review
What it is: A peel-off face mask formulated with activated charcoal to help detoxify skin, leaving a brighter complexion with firmer skin tone.
Beauty bonus: Post-application, skin felt very smooth, supple and hydrated.
Beauty bummer: Lacking a pretty scent and with the consistency of gooey glue, this mask wasn't the most spa-inspired to apply.
Overall: This mask offers an affordable option for those looking to test out the current 'It' beauty ingredient: charcoal.
With a black-as-night colour and the sheen of latex, one look in the mirror had us thinking of Cat Woman (Hey, looking like Halle Berry wouldn't be so bad!).
Post-peel, this mask definitely improves the look of skin in terms of hydration and brightness.
Beware of applying this sticky, slightly messy mask around the hairline, as it is easy to get everywhere! And don't go too thick as it causes it to dry — and remove — inconsistently.
Would I recommend? Yes, it yields noticeable results that far surpass its price point.
Where to buy: Shoppers Drug Mart
