Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask – Worth buying?

Feb 07, 2018, By joshita

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing good. I recently purchased few Korean skincare products from an instagram seller – Skintillating_ind. You can check out my haul on my instagram post. One of the products is the Skinfood Black Sugar wash off mask. This works as a scrub and also as a face mask. Isn’t that cool? I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks and I’ll be sharing my experience now.

About Skinfood

SKINFOOD is the first cosmetic brand to root itself in food. We believe that nutritive food results in nutritive beauty for healthy, beautiful skin. Our food philosophy drives our product development to ensure that only the highest quality food ingredients are used to create a more beautiful, healthier lifestyle. Our roots date back to 1957.

Product Description

A mask washoff featuring organic black sugar granules that exfoliate and nourish skin for a smooth, clean complexion.

Why Black Sugar?

SKINFOOD’ s Black Sugar Cleansing skin care line is an exfoliating and moisturizing cleansing line with organic black sugar. Black sugar is enriched with vitamins and minerals to hydrate and nourish skin. Dead skin cells are scrubbed away, leaving skin soft and glowing.

The black sugar sourced by SKINFOOD is not actually black, but a dark brown sugar. The brown color derives from the amount of molasses, a syrup separated out from sugar after the refining process. While most commercial brown sugar is just refined white sugar coated with molasses, black sugar is unrefined, leaving behind more of the natural benefits. Enriched with vitamins and minerals and organically farmed without pesticides, it’ s sweet to the taste and to the touch!


The mask is packed in a white plastic tub and has an inner lid which makes it spill proof and leak proof. However, some particles of the mask gets stuck to the lid – which I don’t like!


Sucrose, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Lanolin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Laurate, Bht, Butylparaben, Fragrance, Caramel

Directions to use

After cleansing, massage gently into damp skin, or mix with water/cosmetic water and apply. Avoid skin around the eyes and lips. After 10-15 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water.


$10 for 100 grams

My Experience

The mask is in chocolate brown colour and is of a paste like consistency. It isn’t runny and so it is convenient to use. It has a citrusy fragrance which isn’t overpowering. I take a scoop and massage it on my damp skin as per the instruction. The particles are mild yet effective and wouldn’t irritate sensitive skin.

I leave it on the skin for about 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it off. It doesn’t cause any tingling on my sensitive areas and gives a mild cooling effect. Once I wash it off, my skin becomes soft and instantly bright. Though I have dry skin, it doesn’t make my skin stretchy or dry. This is one of my favourites from my haul and my skincare collection.

Final Verdict

It is perfect for every busy woman who wants take care of the skin but doesn’t have enough time. All it takes is 15 minutes to look rejuvenated and bright with Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off mask.

My Rating – 4.5

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
