They are the latest beauty trend to take the internet by storm with beauty bloggers and celebrities alike boasting the benefits of the black charcoal face masks.
But while many YouTube videos showcase vloggers with glowing skin, as many clips see women squirming in pain as they try to remove the ultra sticky mask. And now skincare experts are actively discouraging the use of the tacky masks warning that they could be extremely damaging to the skin.
The masks (which I strongly don’t recommend you try at home) are made with charcoal powder and glue… yes glue!
But now these masks are being sold on sites like Amazon and eBay by unregulated beauty companies, and as a lot of these masks are produced abroad, they don’t go through the strict process of UK ingredients regulation.
I had to share this one users video as she has a very honest reaction and she sums up perfectly the message I’m trying to relay.

He took to his Facebook page to share his concerns about these peel off charcoal pore masks and trust us when we say it will make you think twice about buying one.
