Review: NO:HJ Black Intracell Boosting Mask ★☆☆☆☆


This mask is gaining interest for its transformative nature. It starts off as a black sheet and foams up as time passes. It claims to remove dead skin cells, excess sebum and blackheads, and moisturize and brighten at the same time. I couldn’t find the full ingredient list anywhere and everything on the packaging is in Korean. So below are the notable ingredients instead.

$30.99 for a pack of 10 Amazon.

Ascorbyl Tetraisylpalmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ubiquinone, Orange Peel Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Hollyhock Extract, Green Tea Extract

NO:HJ Black Intracell Boosting Mask
Before masking

My skin is feeling pretty okay, just a little redness and some PIH that needs lightening. I’ve already cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Out of the packet, it smells wonderfully of fresh grapefruit. Just 10 seconds later, what seemed like a plain black sheet mask was suddenly covered in foam.

Channeling my inner Flash, I slapped on the mask and adjusted for fit at the speed of light.

During masking

I may have rushed it too much because foam got into my right eye and my nostrils. After enduring through the stinging and finally wiping the foam off my orifices, I decided to mask with my eyes closed for the remaining 10 mins.

There wasn’t any particular sensation on my skin, no stinging nor tickling. By this time my entire face was covered in foam, which felt really soft and thick. Taking the mask off, I noticed the side that’s touching my skin has foam too! I was wondering if only the side that has contact with air foams up.

After masking

Massaging the foam in felt amazing. It was so soft and turns into cream once rubbed in. Rinsing off was a little challenging, it felt like very soapy soap and just refused to get off. After toweling dry, my skin felt smooth but oh so dry. My fine lines had fine lines and my redness seemed to have worsened. Piling on moisturizer didn’t work, the sebum removal action must’ve been too strong on my combo dry skin. Perhaps the recommended 10 mins was too long for me.

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

I still think this is best for peeps with tremendously oily skin or just seeking some #skintertainment. I’ll rather use a regular scrub or chemical exfoliator to slough off dead skin cells.

Go be beautiful!

Love,
Elaine
