I had heard about the My Scheming Blackhead Removal Mask a couple of times before I finally went and tried to hunt down some “result” photos. I ended up finding this YouTube video that went through the use of the mask and was very impressed (and grossed out by, haha) her results with this product. I searched for the cheapest option on Amazon and ordered right away (this was a semi-delirious-2am-in-bed-on-my-phone impulse purchase, but I have zero regrets!).
The My Scheming Blackhead Removal Mask arrived a little over a week later and I was SO excited to finally try this product for myself! I’m very glad I watched a couple YouTube videos first, because the English instructions included on the box are a little confusing.
- Start by putting hot cloth over your nose for around 30 seconds to help open up your pores.
- Massage the deep pore sebum softener all over your nose, and let that sit for 8-10 minutes.
- Rinse off the deep pore sebum softener and leave your nose (or wherever you’re removing blackheads from) very wet.
- Apply a good amount of the black carbon mask all over the nose area. Leave this on for 30+ minutes, or until it’s totally dry (the box says 15-20 but this took me around 45 minutes, I probably used too much of the mask).
- Peel mask off from the bottom upwards, and aim to get it all in one peel instead of breaking little pieces off.
- Be AMAZED and totally disgusted at how much gunk it just pulled out of your nose, haha.
- Apply the skin clarifying pore treatment essence to your nose. This is meant to help minimize pore size.
Click HERE for result photos! I didn’t want to include them directly in the post in case someone was scrolling past and was totally grossed out by them, haha. The result photos are from a mask I did on Cole’s nose, as he has more blackheads than I do and I wanted to give you the full effect of what this product can do.
So.. does the My Scheming Blackhead Removal Mask really work? YES, yes it does. It’s important to note that some people think they have blackheads when really they are sebaceous filaments, which you can learn more about here. Basically, sebaceous filaments are just naturally occurring sebum that you essentially can’t permanently get rid of. If you remove them using a mask like this, they will fill up again within a month. Regardless, I know that my nose definitely gets it’s fair share of blackheads and I’m more than happy to get rid of those!
Have you ever had good success with a blackhead removal mask?
