Now the Australian skincare brand has found its first NZ distributor, The Beauty Collective making this product more accessible than ever before.

My Review

We’ve all seen the horror stories, the YouTube videos where they remove these peel off mask types and struggle. With all this in mind, I jumped right in applying BLAQ Mask across my chin and my nose area. 

This was my first mistake. More on this shortly. 

As it dried, I didn’t feel any weird feels or smells, it smelt like it should actually. 

Now for the peeling off. It hurt, but this was all my fault. See I put the mask on my chin and right along, almost close to my ears, which of course met some little blonde hairs and well this hurt. Once those bits were sorted, it was on to the rest and can I say so rewarding. My skin was left tidy and clean, no redness either. 

Would I use this product again, yes yes I would, but just around the nose. I am pretty sure my boyfriend, however, might just steal this. 

My Tips 

  • Start off small until you are used to the product and how it works. 
  • Wash off any excess product with warm soapy water after rather than try and pick it off
  • Use it weekly and pair with perhaps a clay mask. 
  • Hide it from your boyfriend….seriously.
