Oriflame Pure Skin Blackhead Clearing Mask Review

By Ketakee

Hello every one, I am back with a new article on IBJ.
Pree and everyone who know me well, are aware about the number of face packs I use. I just adore face packs. Even right now I have some 12-15 face packs. And yes all my beauties I am gonna review 6 best face packs among them. Today is the first one and the most basic one which I need whenever I get even a single pimple or a zit or a blackhead on my face. Yes you read it right its basic for me.

As the pack describes the face pack has a deep action on our skin and it helps in targeting and controlling the oilyness on our face. It also detects the exact position and works over it. I suppose this sounds really unbelieveable but let me tell you its absolutely true.
Now I got this from Preetha in my first order of oriflame. Its original cost is Rs 298/- but I got this on offer of Rs 220/- (approximately). I am in love with this product. This is like a savior when my skin gets a small zit here and there. It comes in a dark blue colored tube, with a screw cap (though I prefer flip cap in case we need more quantity it gets messy ya!).
Here is the look of the tube.

Product Claims : Reduces blackheads and purifies pores. It contains salicyclic acid.
Now about my skin type its combinational. Its very very dry in winters and my forehead and nose get slight oily in summers. Rainy seasons I have slight more oiliness because of humidity in the weather. Neways whatever the season is according to me those small zits cannot be avoided. The reasons for such small zits are pollution, stress, inadequate consumption of water and also sometimes not cleaning our skin properly. So whenever I get zits I am irritated and go for a home facial. But then there are time constraints and we do need a shortcut. Everyone must be aware of the method giving some steam to our face and then scrubbing it to remove the zits. But I feel it’s a lengthy one. For a quick fix I now have ORIFLAME PURE SKIN BLACKHEAD CLEARING MASK. Yes that’s right! Just clean your face and use this mask.

The mask looks very very artificial containing no natural stuff in it. Its white in color, paste like consistency and chalky when it dries. It smell like some medicine or an injection. Dunno whats the exact smell but its not strong. It feels like we are undergoing some important treatment for our face. 😛
Here is the swatch of the product :

According to the instructions we are supposed to apply a thin layer of the facepack to our skin, keep it for five minutes to allow it to dry and then wash it away. I always wait till the the face pack dries completely. And this takes about 7-10 minutes depending upon the thickness of the layer you have applied. One should avoid its contact with eyes since its full of chemicals according to me. But sweethearts those are harmless chemicals for our skin I guess.
When you wash your face you will find that the pimples are settled and those small zits here and there are softened and can be removed easily. Also it becomes easy to remove those blackheads. Most of the times they disappear after washing the face. So there you come to know how its helpful when you are in hurry and get those annoying zits.
I wouldn’t recommend this to specific skin type gurls but would say this is a must have for everyone. Annoying zits, blackheads, pimples appear anytime anyday and then if you don’t have time for a home facial why not keep this wonder product with you.
Pros:

  • Nice packaging, easy to carry around.
  • Helps in controlling oiliness on skin.
  • Reduces zits, pimples and blackheads to a great extent.
  • Cost effective.
  • Good option for those who are in hurry and don’t have time for a facial.

Cons:

  • Contains parabens
  • Flip cap packaging would be preferred.


Rating : 4/5
Hope you liked my review.
