Avojo Black Peel Off Face Mask | Review & Swatches

Thursday, 23 January 2014

Hello Lovelies! I hope your all having a great week! Sorry about my lack of updates on here, I've decided to slow down on how much I post as I just can't keep up with posting every day along side a full time job. I have to take all of my photos at weekends as I rarely see daylight outside of work hours anymore and never have time to write posts in the evenings! Anyway, I am back with yet another skincare review for you all today, as you can probably tell I've been very into my skincare recently. 

I was recently contacted by Avojo asking if I would like to try their Black Peel Off Mask* and after some quick research into what the mask aimed to do and what skin types it was aimed at, I say yes. The Avojo Black Peel Off Mask is aimed at combination and oily skin and as I have combination skin this looked like it would be perfect for me. The mask is specially designed to remove and prevent blackheads by cleansing your skin while removing excess oil and dead skin cells. 

When I first opened the sachet I was a little scared of the black gloop that was staring back at me and sure enough, it was like smearing black paint all over your face. Needless to say, I looked a little bit odd as I emerged from the bathroom and was greeted by fits of laughter from my housemates - the things we do for beauty! The mask set pretty quickly but the packed advised that I left it on for 30-45 mins so I stuck on yet another episode of Greek (I've been obsessed recently!) and let it work its magic. The packet advises that you only apply the mask to your T-Zone as this is where blackheads and pores usually form but being me, I ignored the instructions and slapped it all over my face. That was a definate mistake. I have quite a lot of peach fuzz on the sides of my cheeks and man did it hurt to peel off! However, the next couple of times I used it, it wasn't an issue as I'd only applied the mask to my T-Zone like I should have from the beginning. 

I was a little shocked when peeling this mask off to see what was actually coming out of my face. I used this after thouroughtly cleaning my face and the gunk that was left in my pores was shocking. I think because the mask is black it lets you see how much it's actually getting rid of but I quite like that as it shows me that it's doing its job. After using this mask my skin felt really clean and smooth and my pores were definitely less visible. 

Overall, I really like this mask, despite how funny you look when you've got it on! It did exactly what I wanted to and kept my T-Zone clear without irritating my skin. I'd reccomend this to anyone who suffers with excess oil, pores and blackheads looking to keep them under controll. The mask is priced at £3 per sachet which I don't think is too bad as you could easily get 2 or 3 uses from each sachet and is available here: AVOJO

    1. Ohh, I was going to but just got to the payment stage and it's like a dutch kind of thing, I don't trust the payment method! If it'd have been paypal I would have had a sachet!

    2. I think they are coming over to the UK soon so you may be able to buy one then :) xx

    3. Hi, I'm the marketing promoter for AVOJO, I just want to let you know that the black peel off mask exists on the UK market, here's some links:

  3. This sounds incredible and I would love to try it out. I love any sort of mask that is detoxifying and this one sounds like one to try.

  4. This sounds like it could be my next buy! I love the fact it shows you what's left in your pores, it makes you realise why cleansing is so important, I dread to think what it'd be like for someone that neglected their skin, I'm sure there'd be quite a bit of gunk in those pores! Love this post though, thanks!
