Lately, we’ve been on a serious mission to rid ourselves of blackheads (seriously, who isn’t?). This operation involves testing a bunch of products that promise to clear pores and make the appearance of those stubborn black dots on your face virtually undetectable. Read on to see why the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is an innovative sheet mask that will deep clean your pores where you need it the most.
Before I get into the nitty gritty of this review, let’s get one thing clear about the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear: This isn’t your typical sheet mask. It’s a bubbling sheet mask, which means it doesn’t just sit on your face like any old sheet mask. Nope, it actually bubbles. And these bubbles do two things: They make your masking experience way more fun, and they allow the ingredients in the mask to really work. Let me explain…
How this mask deep cleans pores:
The Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is a mask that is all about the ingredients and the process of using the mask. This is what the mask looks like when you pull it out of its pouch:
After you throughly double cleanse and apply essence or toner, you’ll want to make sure that you quickly and efficiently get the mask shaped onto the lower part of your face, because within seconds, it will start bubbling up. Thanks to the hefty dose of purified sparkling water from Chojeong, after literally three minutes of having this mask on, you’ll look like this:
You’ll be happy Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is bubbling up this much, because on top of looking like you have the best Santa Claus beard, the bubbles help fortify all of the amazing ingredients in the mask that will seriously clean your skin.
As you probably guessed from its name, the mask’s main ingredient is black charcoal. And when I say it’s the main ingredient, I’m not kidding. The mask is actually made out of black charcoal and it’s infused with black charcoal powder. Charcoal is like a magnet for toxins and debris, meaning this mask works extra hard to suck all of that gunk straight out of your pores.
On top of charcoal, the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is infused with a collection of fruit extracts—including grape, lemon, lime, apple, and orange extract. These all work together to slough off stubborn dead skin cells and reveal polished skin.
Besides making the mask exciting (and providing arguably the best sheet mask selfie ever), the bubbles in the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear serve a really important purpose. They scrub your pores to get a really deep clean that reduces excess sebum, and they also provide oxygen to your skin, which allows the mask to remove even more toxins. Plus, the bubbles leave behind a pretty great foamy face wash on your skin after you peel the mask off. When you peel the mask off after ten minutes, your face should look like this:
You then use the bubbles to gently massage the remainder of the essence into your skin (there’s also enough bubbles to transfer them up to your forehead area, if you’d like):
After you’re done scrubbing, you wash off the bubbles and continue with the remainder of your ten step routine.
Thanks to its two-step technology, the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is a deep cleaning machine that leaves you with way less blackheads. Soko Glam describes this mask as a “deep tissue massage for your face” and I couldn’t agree more. It goes down to the source of clogged pores and gently massages sebum and dirt out of them. When the masking experience is done, your skin doesn’t feel irritated or like it’s just had a really harsh scrub. You’re left with clear skin that feels soft to the touch.
My only gripe with the Goodal Black Charcoal Mask Sparkling Clear is that it isn’t a full-face mask—I need all of the pores on my face to get this intensive cleaning experience. But if you’re like me and you suffer from hormonal acne on the lower part of your face (especially on your chin and especially around your period), I would suggest using this mask a week before you’re due to have a breakout. You’ll thank me when you miraculously don’t get one pimple.
