[REVIEW] Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off

Did you know that black sugar is a natural humectant that draws moisture from the air and is rich in natural glycolic acid which gently removes dead skin cells for a smooth and hydrated complexion? I am thankful for Stylevana sv for the opportunity to try this Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and see what great results it may give me.

2. Great physical exfoliator;
3. Economical as you don’t need much product for good result;
4. Has great butters to soften the skin;
5. Perfect as a body scrub too;
6. Great reviews online.

CONS:
1. Contains fragrance;
2. High risk of fungal acne (6 triggers);
3. Tub packaging;
4. Not for sensitive skin.

I use physical exfoliators quite rarely but if I do my best ones are with sugar. I mostly used this wash off mask for my body as my face is too sensitive even for sugar these days. It is a heavier paste but in contact with water gives that smooth slide. It does leave your skin clean and smooth. Aroma is refreshing so sets a good mood in the shower. If you need a good effective scrub, this one’s for you!
