Ever since I watched American Psycho and saw Patrick Bateman’s skincare routine, I am always fascinated with peel-off face masks. They just look so satisfying! But finding a good peel-off face mask is not as easy as Patrick Bateman removing his face mask. Some didn’t really work, while some broke me out, keep reading my Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask review to know more.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who finds this scene satisfying?
What is it?
Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask eliminates dead skin cells, waste products, excessive sebum and tightens enlarged pores all the while providing an abundance of nutrients for a healthy, radiant look! It contains Charcoal that removes sebum, Chinese Peashrub to calm the skin, and Camelia Flower that helps care the pores.
APPLICATION: After cleansing, apply a thin layer over the nose or face and allow to dry for around 15 minutes. Then “gently” remove it.
SCENT: It’s not scented but there’s this smell I can’t exactly explain but it’s the generic smell of those products that claim to be “scentless,” you get what I mean?
PACKAGING: The tube has a cartoon-like illustration showing sebum running away from the product which is kinda cute. The product is also packaged in a box which has the same illustration (not pictured because I lost it before writing this post).
RESULTS: It is creamy, kinda thick, and sticky. Yes, I’m still describing Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask. I prefer applying it thickly around my nose or all-over my face, contrary to the instructions, so it’ll be less painful, easier to peel-off and reenact my favorite American Psycho moment (and I’m totally talking about the face mask scene). But unlike Patrick Bateman’s face mask, the Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask is not clear instead it falls around on Christian Grey’s Fifty Shades.
My brother and I both use this product, I used this all over my face while my brother used this around his nose (as seen in the GIF below). Despite my brother’s reaction, the face mask doesn’t hurt that much honestly, but there’s still a little pain in some areas of the face.
My purpose of using product is to reduce the sebum/gunk stuck in the pores of my skin, while my brother’s purpose is to reduce his blackheads, well more sebum than blackheads. And Elizavecca Hell Pore Clean Up Mask did both of that, however, when I have a pimple I notice this product kinda irritates it and worsen it. And then my brother told me the reason he only uses this around his nose is that the last time he used this all over his face, it broke him out. He got a pimple! So it’s safe to assume that this is not for sensitive skin types.
PROS: It effectively removes sebum, some blackheads, and does not hurt to peel-off that much (it’s almost nothing).
CONS: Don’t expect it will remove all your blackheads, actually, no at-home products could really do that. And this product is not for those with sensitive skin.
