Pilaten blackhead remover
Does it really work?!
Blackheads are the most annoying flaw on my skin. They are barely there but they are also stubborn as f**k. I’ve tried many methods over the years to get rid of them, but nothing worked.
When I heard about Pilaten blackhead remover, I had high hopes, this will be the answer to my blackhead problems. I got carried away by many Youtube videos from beauty vloggers, testing the black mask. The results seemed almost miraculous but I fell for it and ordered the mask.
The mask is very easy to apply and has a lovely floral scent. The first time I applied it, I spread it out to thin and I had troubles removing it. I suggest you apply a very thick coat, because than you can remove it in one piece. But beware, it hurts a little bit when you remove the mask, because it pulls out your facial hair as well.
What was the effect of black mask on my skin??
I tested the mask multiple times. Twice was on myself, once my sister tried it and once my friend. I’ve wanted to test the mask thoroughly in order to give you the best review possible.
As for my experience, the first time I put on the mask I didn’t notice any blackheads on the mask, when I peeled it off. My skin did get smoother afterwards, but as a blackhead remover, it didn’t do to well. I have to say I put on a mask in a very thin layer so this could be the problem.
The second time, I applied a thick coat and I’ve noticed a couple of blackheads on the peeled off mask. The results were not nearly as impressive as the ones on all of the black mask promotional videos.
I do have to admit, my pores are pretty tight and I don’t have a lot of blackheads to begin with. So maybe that was the problem in my case.
My sister’s results
I think the Pilaten mask helped my sister a lot more than me. She applied the mask after opening the pores with steam (I skipped that step) and the mask pulled out quite a few of her blackheads. Still the results weren’t as impressive as the ones in promoted videos, but there is no denying it, the mask helped her.
My friend’s results
My friend tested the mask with me and she was pretty impressed with her results. The mask pulled out a lot of her blackheads and she was very happy with the effect of this mask.
I think Pilaten blackhead mask works a lot better for people with bigger pores and a lot of blackheads. It didn’t do a lot for me, because I take care of my skin (and my pores) regularly and have only very unnoticeable amount and size of blackheads on my nose. I would recommend this mask to people with problematic skin, but do not expect miracles. Pores are a part of your skin and they cannot be removed.
