This mask claims to remove impurities, cleanse and minimize pores with activated charcoal and volcanic ash. It also deeply hydrates at the same time with chlorella and green tea extracts. Gentle enough for congested and sensitive skin types.
My skin is feeling very congested today. I even have 2 gigantic and painful cystic acne on both cheeks. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
Out of the packet, this gave off Leaders’ signature clean scent. It’s an opaque black cotton mask that felt quite thick, thicker than the other masks in this range. Essence was gloopy and in abundance.
Fit was great! Adherence was alright since the material was quite thick. My skin tingled a little for the first 10 mins, nothing too bad. I had this on for a total of 45 mins, it was still slightly damp.
Massaging the remaining essence into my skin took some time. Finish was tacky and dewy. The first thing I noticed was how bright my skin looked! Hydration was also on point. Redness was reduced and my pores looked slightly smaller. Active acne was also less red.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
To me, this is more like a brightening mask than a pore-clearing one, for it performed better in the former aspect. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Great for night use! Check out more Leaders reviews here.
