Today I am going to talk about Ryaal Black Mess mask and scrub.
This a product from a brand that is pretty new to me. And to be honest I have never used the 2 in 1 kind of products. I always follow the conventional scrubbing and masking routine. So this product is very different for me and I wanted to give it a try.
Price – Rs. 499/- available on amazon.in and also on their website
It is a all natural mask, scrub and cleanser. It can be used daily as a cleanser and twice a week as a mask cum scrub.
Ingredients (mentioned on the tub) – Activated Charcoal, Kaolin Clay, Fullers Earth, Rhassoul Mud (Moroccos Lava Clay), Organic Dead Sea Mud, Aloe Vera Extract, Peppermint Oil, Australian Tea Tree Oil, Sugar (Sucrose), Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Glycerin, Xanthum Gum
The product comes in a black matte plastic tub. When you remove the cover you will find an air tight separator which prevents the product from exposure to air and avoid any spillage.
My thoughts on the product :
The mask is completely black in color. It has small granules of walnut shell powder that are not quite visible as the mask is so black. But you can surely feel it. It smells mostly like Tea tree oil to me. The formula is very easy to spread. Since it has clay in it, the product dries down pretty quickly.
As mentioned on the packaging I apply some water on the mask once it has dried down and gently exfoliate before rinsing off. That is how the brand says to use it and to be honest that is the ideal way. Plus the idea of scrubbing first and letting the mask sit with all that gunk is just gross for me !
I really love the way my skin feels after I use this. It feels clean and smooth. The clay and activated charcoal does a good job in clearing my pores and that too without making my skin dry or flaky which probably is because of the glycerine.
It has teatree oil in it which helps with acne. But right now by God’s grace I am not facing any acne related issue hence cannot comment whether it works or not. But yes it did not cause any break outs. So we are good.
The only thing I did not like is it leaves some superficial residue. It comes off when I use my toner. This mask can be a bit messy while applying. You can dispense some amount on the back of your hand using a spatula and then apply it onto the skin. While removing I use a muslin cloth to clean the mask and then rinse off.
Overall it is a good product if you are looking for a mild exfoliator and a good mask. Its not something that you can use for deep exfoliating but I like the idea of a quick mask cum scrub. Plus I really like the quirky tag line on the packaging -” I maybe messy myself, but I promise to leave your skin mess free”.😋
I hope this post was helpful.
