StyleLux Blackhead Killer Review

After seeing this face mask do the rounds on Instagram, Facebook, blogs, everywhere that it can go, I had to try it for myself. So when I was offered the chance to try the Blackhead Killer Mask from StyleLux I took the chance, a step closer to winning the battle between my face and the stubborn blackheads that inhabit it.

In a pack, you get 5 little sachets, although I only pictured 4 because one was drying on my face while I snapped away. The sachets do not hold a lot of product at all, but it was enough to lightly cover my whole face. I don't really have blackheads all over my face, mainly on my t-zone, nose and chin area. I was hoping to get enough to put a thick layer and if I used this again I would definitely just put it on my problem areas. I say "if I use this again" because I don't think I dare. This stuff absolutely kills. 

After around 10 minutes, it dries on your face and starts to lift slightly around the edges so that you have an area to start with. My god, it took me another 10 minutes to take this bad boy off because my skin was screaming at me to stop. I've seen other blogs say this is mildly painful, but they must've been on crack cause this sucker was firmly stuck to my face and it did not want to come off. It attaches itself like a squid and will not give up easily. My eyes watered the whole time pulling this off and any baby hairs that I had on my face are now waxed off in a slow and torturous way. 

I've never used a face mask this painful and I really don't see why I would again. Sure it was fun to see all the gunk that came off with it, but I'd honestly rather just stick to nose strips. Sam walked into my bedroom when I was taking it off and went "why have you put nail polish on your face?" I don't know Sam, why have I put nail polish on my face? Would I recommend it? Honestly, if you have quite big pores, this would do a good job of getting all that gunk out & it's meant to be good for oily skin which is the opposite of what I have and might be the reason it didn't work so well for me. If you have facial hair, avoid at all costs. I want to give you my honest opinion here and say that I don't really get the hype, but I could see how this would be beneficial to those who suffer from blackheads. If you would like to check the Blackhead Killers they are priced at £14.95. I'd suggest going over to the site and reading some of the reviews because there are a lot of people who reap the benefits and are obviously less of a sissy pants than me.  

Have you ever used anything like this before?

Til' next time! XOXO
