-This mask opens up the pores with a warm heat of salt and sugar powder and eliminates wast material in a rough skin affected by accumulated keratin. It provides an amazing silkiness to skin with nourishing black sesame extract.
Smells - very lightly of seasame, barely noticable, at least until I washed it off, then it was strongly sesame. A nice smell though. Not articifical at all.
Texture- not that scratchy, but a bit rough, not rough enough to be a scrub.
It has big chunks of black sesame, which also aren't scratchy.
Until washing it off, then it felt very scrub like, and could be used as a scrub. Interesting how the wash of texture was different than the apllication texture!
Effectiveness- gets quite hot whe applied to a damp face. My face got quite hot, and very red, as the mask brought up lots of blood. But in a hot mask, this is a good thing. It actually made me sweat!
It was almost to the point of uncomfortable, which in my opinion is a good thing. Hot but not too hot.
Left my face very very smooth, softer, and very warm!
Buy? Yes. I am definitely going to get the large version of this. I generally find heat up masks are gimicky, rather than effective. But this one is not like that, after one use this mask made my skin extra smooth.
