Today, I’m gonna review on this highly-raved product which is widely discussed in beauty forums. Price ranges from $0.75 to $2. See the huge difference in price of this product? You can get this mask at a cheaper price if you order it through spree. Dont be a fool and get one sachet of Shiseido Black Mask for $2 from online blogshops. They mark-up the price a lot.
Last year, I spree-ed for this black mask after knowing that it was recommended on taiwan variety show 女人我最大. So, I bought 4 packs of the mask and tested out the effectiveness of this mask. At first, I only know that this mask helps to remove black and whiteheads effectively and it has pore tighting effect. It also helps to remove facial hair. I did not know that this mask has whitening effect, only until when my mum said that my face become whiter.
Ya..Like what I read online, Shiseido Mineral Black Mask has strong whitening and cleansing effect. Shiseido Vital Perfection Mineral Mud Blackhead Removal Mask is highly effective at reducing and removing blackheads, whiteheads and dirt. It also helps in tightening the skin and reducing enlarged pore size.
This mask is formulated with five Japanese and Chinese herbal extracts, including wormwood extract and goldthread extracts. Each sachet can be used for 2 or more separate applications, depending on the amount and thickness used per appplication. My recommendation is to use one sachet if you intending to put it on your whole face. Use it twice or thrice if you only want to apply it on your nose. Keep the remaining in the fridge.
So, how to use the mask?
After washing your face, pin up your hair using clip or tie up your hair. This is because you will have to peel off the mask after 30 minutes. So what will happen if your hair goes to your face and you need to peel them? *OUCH*

Spread and apply evenly onto freshly cleansed dry skin. Avoiding areas around the eyes, eyebrows, hairline and lips. To obtain best result, you can try to steam your face for like 10 minutes for your pores to open up. The pack is more than enough for the whole face. Do not waste the mask by just applying it onto your nose.
After 30 minutes, when the mask has dried up, peel off from the outer edges upwards towards the center. PLEASE DO NOT PEEL DOWNWARDS unless you want a saggy face.
P.S.: I’m not sure if this Vital Perfection Shiseido mask is authentic. Some websites said it is.. some say no.. so, use it at your own risk. But, I’ve tried it and have no problem or allergies. And it is really very good. I’m stocking up the masks.
Beside Shiseido black mask, the other highly raved masks are the White Mask and Naturgo Mask.
Naturgo Mask is the second generation of the Black Mask which has the same functions as the Black Mask. It is originated from deep sea mud, include rich minerals & natural essence. It cleanses pores thoroughly, balancing oil secretion, suppress and lighten pigmentation, achieving whitening effects. Long term usage promotes skin revitalization. It has the benefits of deep pore cleansing, removing dirt and impurities, minimizing breakouts, whitening and lightening pigmentation.
You can use up to three times for one pack of Shiseido black mask on the nose. And up to five times for one pack of Shiseido Naturgo Mask. Both weigh 12g but I think the naturgo mask has more. So, if i’m going to stock up again, I think I will get the Naturgo one.
