Léonie Blackhead Removing Mask Review and Giveaway [CLOSED]

I have oily/combination skin, so I love using masks that help to purify all of that excess sebum that builds up throughout the day.  I've been using the Léonie Blackhead Removing Peel-Off Mask for a few weeks now, and it's great at making my skin feel smooth and refreshed.

The aspect of this mask that was the most fun for me (and I'd assume for most others) was that it was a peel-off mask.  The instructions said to apply an even layer after cleansing skin, let it dry, and then peel off.  I want to point out that it's important not to skimp when using this, because if you apply it too thinly it will be difficult to remove.  The mask is entirely black, so it's easy to see where on your skin you might need to apply a bit more (meaning if your skin is still visible through the first layer, you should probably add a bit more.

I don't have too much of an issue with blackheads, so I can't comment on how well it removed those.  I can say that after using this mask my skin felt incredibly smooth and nourished.  It was easy to peel off, and any small bits of mask that I couldn't peel off I washed off using water.  I used this mask twice a week and I could definitely see and feel that it helped to remove dead skin.  This can also be used on the body if you have a need for that.

This mask is cruelty-free but not all-natural.  It contains minimal ingredients, which I like, but it does contain a small amount of methylparabens.  I am not as concerned with parabens as with some other synthetic ingredients, but whether or not you use them is your choice.  The active ingredients include charcoal, which helps remove blackheads and other impurities; grapefruit and lemon-peel extracts to that work as astringents; and rosemary extract, which works as an antioxidant and antimicrobial agent.

Bottom Line: The Léonie Blackhead Removing Peel-Off Mask is a great option for purifying your skin.  It retails for $38, but is currently on sale for $26.  I had a lot of fun using this mask!

  2. I only recently found your blog but I love that you include so much information about the good/bad ingredients in the products you review. I find it very helpful and enlightening. I really did not give this enough consideration before. We all check out what is in the food we eat but healthy and beauty products? At least for me that was a no. Thanks again.

  3. My #1 concern is excess oil. I hope I can get to try out this mask!

  4. Most kids will fit comfortably into the three-ply mask, and the reusable material allows the mask to be washed a number of times
