Tried and tested: this incredible €30 face mask will get rid of all your blackheads

face mask


Do you ever have a good look at your skin in the mirror, and get sad?

That happened to me last week.

Not necessarily because of spots or anything, my skin just looked a bit grey.

Probably because of the build up of my pores, and those pesky black heads.

And despite my urge, I decided not to go at my face with my hands.

Instead I enlisted the help of a brand new face mask, from a brand I know, love and trust.

e.l.f Cosmetics recently launched the Beauty Shield Magnetic Mask in Ireland, and lads, it works.

It lifts away surface impurities using an innovative iron-based formula and magnetic tool to help extract impurities, brighten skin and minimise the appearance of pores.

Dreamy, right? Plus, it’s actually really fun to use.

The formula is infused with key antioxidants, Carrot Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Argan Oil to help replenish the skin.

So, how did I use it?

Using the scoop of the magnetic tool, I applied a think layer of the mask to my face (which I cleaned prior, FYI).

Then, I simply left it for ten minutes, while I scrolled through my Instagram newsfeed.

After that, I covered the head of the magnetic tool with one of the included magnet covers, and hovered the magnetic tool just above my skin.

Almost like magic, the mask is drawn to the magnet, and pops off the skin – taking the impurities with it!

Then I just rinsed my face with water, and slapped on my moisturiser.

My skin was left feeling clean, soft and recharged.

And the tub itself is just €30, and it will last you ages – so it was well worth the investment.
