answer 1
No. You should not be experiencing pain with this mask. If you experience pain with this, or any other beauty product for that matter, it probably means you're slightly allergic to it.

Some products note that you'll feel a slight tingling or whatever, but this one is not supposed to, so I would stop using it and try a different mask in the future.

Hurts me too! Leaves my cheeks red and irritated. Might start removing it with a warm cloth instead of peeling it. I know it will loose some of the exfoliating effects that way, but I rather have that, then blotchy skin. Note *My skin is not sensitive, so why it doe this with this product is a mystery to me.

it should not be painful....but you should be able to FEEL it working. meaning you will feel a little "tug" when you start to peel off mask-this is becuse the mask is actually working and drawing out impurities, bacteria and oil

It will hurt if you go too fast. This is a typical gel type of mask and you have to keep in mind that it will stick to your top layer. I suggest peeling what you can and in the areas that it hurts to peel off of just wipe it off with a warm wet cloth. The lask easily comes off in water :-) Hope this helps!

No, it isn't supposed to be painful but you have to remember that since it is getting into your skin that when you peel it off that you are removing any baby hairs attached to your face. That is why this product is so good at removing everything bad in your skin is because it grabs it so well. It feels as if you were to take a band aide off some arm hair. It may be a little uncomfortable but just go for it!

It "hurts" as much as when you peel of a Biore nose strip. If you haven't used that product, then no it shouldn't be painful. I find it slightly irritating when I'm peeling off of a sensitive/soft section portion of my skin (i.e. my cheeks).

Yes. I tried this product as a sample and plan on purchasing it. I have acne problems that mostly result from clogged pores (I rarely have cystic acne), which results in blackheads and small pimples.

Since this product does help with clearing your pores and exfoliating, I can imagine that it will be helpful in managing or reducing acne. However, make sure you do not use ON the acne, b/c it will easily pull and open the acne when the mask is removed. If you're having issues with acne, following this product use a toner then followed by serum and moisturizer. You will see that as a result of using the masks the products' absorption and hence effectiveness will significantly improve. Hope this helps.

I have noticed that I have less breakouts using this. You know how your pores look cleaned out after using a Biore strip? Imaginge your entire face looking like that! So I am guessing by unclogging my pores, I am preventing future breakouts. So for me, YES- it has helped with acne.

Flakes on your skin? Not to be funny, but your situation may be a little bit more than Sephora can handle. You should see a doctor and get a prescription for what you are talking about. Im not sure about the severity of your condition, but if it is what I am imagining, it sounds like you may have Dermatis Psorarisis. Flakes on the skin is not a minor condition....unless you simply mean you have regular dry skin like most of us. If that is the case, then you just need a good moisturizer. But again, I am not sure how severe your situation is.

Yes! The product removes a lot of impurities on the skin and will help with flakes. Be sure to leave it on for 20 minutes and apply a decently thick layer, to make it easy to peel off.

It removed my blackheads - and made my pores appear smaller. I know that nothing will actually make your pores smaller but some ingredients can make them look smaller. Also, blackheads will stretch your pores out and make them bigger so in the long term this product can help by keeping them clean with regular use.
The first time I used it I did not notice much blackhead removal, but using it 2x a week, I noticed after the third time my blackheads were gone. I have used the Biore strips and this works much better and more consistently for me (plus, I get blackheads on my cheeks as well).

It cleans out the pores, but it does not really remove blackheads. The biore pore strips do not really work well to remove blackheads, as I have tried them. The Boscia Purifying Pore Strips are the same idea as the biore ones, but they work a thousand times better. Using the black mask, and then unclogging even more with the Boscia strips would give you the best results.

Most exfoliants help reduce scarring by encouraging cell turnover. However, don't use this on lesions that are healing, it will rip the protective scab of. If you really don't like the scab and don't care about proper healing, use a cleanser with glycolic acid. I don't have many acne scars, but I do have a lot of post-acne hyperpigmentation. Ingredients good for hyperpigmentation include: licorice, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), Vitamin A (Retinol), the B vitamins (especially Niacin and Panthenol), Kojic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Allantoin, to name a few.

i wouldn't think so. if anything, it made my pores quite a bit more visible -- the product either left some sort of residue in my pores or discoloured my blackheads to make them more noticeable. regardless, it was not a flattering look!

you might be better off with something like bio oil or cacao butter for scarring. if your scars are from acne, i'd try something from bliss (e.g. steep clean or their oxygen mask) or a mask from dr. brandt (something that actually did minimize ance scarring for me).

It depends on how bad your scarring is. I have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (acne scars that last up to 6 months) and it has helped a lot with that. But if you have deep scars or ones that have been there for many years, I don't think this product will be able to help you much.
You should really look into chemical peels with BHA's and AHA's. I am a liscensed Esthetician and I will tell you that the only real ways to help with bad scarring are micodermabrasion, chemical peels, lasers, etc.
These are of course more expensive, but sometimes the only options.
Hope this helps! :)

I have a few places of scarring and I noticed no difference with the first peel but maybe consecutive ones. It does get rid of dead skin though and my skin felt like the blood was circulating and looked healthier.

I have acne scars on my face. the small poc marks. it doesnt help get rid of them BUT for the day it makes your complexion texture smoother and that helps you apply the make up on smoother and it does make the scars look better for the day but doesnt rid you of them.

No, it doesn't. it is supposed to brighten your skin, but it kind of doesn't. you should just use something else for your scars.

Question
has anyone tried this?
Is it actually black? Does the peel-off method work? I haven't used a peel-off mask since I was about 14.

Yes, this mask is really black. It can look grey if you don't put it on thick enough but it doesn't peel off if you apply it really thin. The peel off works well for me and doesn't hurt but I wait over 20 minutes and then wrinkle my face to get the mask loose so it is easier to pull of. I always have tiny bits left on my face but they wipe off easy with a wet washcloth. I really like this mask.

Yes, it is VERY black. See photo attached. Its easy to apply pretty much and as long as you have a consistent even layer it will peel off just fine.

Yes, it's black. It looks like wet licorice on the face. What doesn't peel off can be rinsed off.

When you apply the mask it dries and looks like black leather painted onto your skin. You very slowly peel it off and if you go too quickly it can hurt. Any areas that are too sensitive to peel simply wipe the mask off with a warm wet cloth then apply your night cream afterwards.

It really is the most amazing mask I have ever used and I use all sorts. I am not a huge fan of peel-off masks until I sampled this one. I have tried Fresh, Lancome and every other brand out there but after using this mask for only one week Boscia has a customer for life!

I have received n less then 17 remarks about how young and fresh my face looks this week. I had no idea that I had such a huge change until I looked closely in the miror todya. At 43 my skin looks like it did in my late 20s! It really is that amazing!

I am planning to buy this for all the ladies in my family and ship it to them. Even used this on my 17 yr old daughter who has acne and her skin looks amazing just after one night!

If you are in the Sephora Beauty Program go into a local store and request a sample tube. They will make one up for you and you can try it. This is what I did as I too was concerned about the whole peel off method.

Yes, it is actually black. It does peel off very easily and it works wonders! It really gets deep into your pores and pulls out all the bad stuff and the end product is smooth and glowing skin! I was so happy with my results!

The mask is most def black and the peel off works pretty well! Any small bits that didn't come off the first time can be washed off with warm water. Didn't stain my towel either.

yes, it's completely black. and it's so easy to peel it off (from the edges). make sure you avoid dry/hairy areas as the mask does tend to pull. however, if you apply just enough to not see through the mask, peeling is quite gentle and would rip before it hurts you. good luck!

Yes! It is actually completely and totally black and it peels off incredibly well. I am able to peel mine off in one big piece with very little residue left. The residue is easily wiped off with a damp towel or peeled off separately. This is by far the best mask I have ever used! LOVE it!

It is totally black. You have to apply it in a thick layer, so it takes some time to dry. They say it provides "exceptional deep cleansing" because it literally removes the surface layer of skin and dirt.

Question
Is this mask suitable for dry combination skin?
My t-zone is oily but can still get flaky sometimes. There are visible pore on and around my nose - will this mask work for my skin type and help tighten my pores?

I think it would be fine. Make sure you follow with a moisturizer, and don't leave it on past the recommended 15-20 minutes. I also have combo/dry skin in the winter and had no problems. I have also just used it as a spot treatment around my nose, chin & forehead - which I found worked well if my cheeks needed to be left alone.

YES! I have that same exact problem and the great thing is that it doesn't sting like others do on areas where you're not oily. I loved it! And it improves the dry too.

I have the same exact skin as you do, very oily t zone with dry spots around my nose and cheeks. This mask did me well, it didn't dry me out at all and made the oil go down. Hope I helped~

It did not help my pores at all. For me personally, it seemed to open them more and my skin became more oily. I would suggest you find samples and try different things out. I am sad I spent the money on this product.

I have the similar problem, my t-zone is typically much more oily whereas the rest of my skin is rather dry, make sure to use this only once a week followed my a good night cream. As long as you use a mild face wash and follow with a good night cream you should be fine, at least I was.

I would concentrate this product on the oily areas of your face. Being sure to avoid the dry areas since the peel-off action could exacerbate the condition.
