With Juicy Chemistry Argan & Mango Butter Mask, I also bought Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Mask. This facial mask has got very raved reviews over internet. So there was no way I would have missed it. Juicy Chemistry makes very exotic natural products for skin, body & hair. The products are limited, but, amazing. I have been using it for a month now, it’s the time that I review this mask, which is also known as the acne & blackhead mask.

The acne control face mask comes in a transparent tub with white-grey detailing. Juicy Chemistry logo is printed at the cap of the tub, while other product details are provided on the tub itself. The face mask is in the form of dry powder, hence every time I open it, I have to be really careful to avoid any spillage. A wooden spoon also comes along with the face mask to scoop out product out of the tub.
Color, Texture & Smell
This is a grey colored powdered face mask. The powder is supposed to be mixed with rose water/ water before using it. The color of the face mask is looking greenish in the photographs, but is actually more grey. You can also spot some grounded almonds in the powder which gives ultimate scrubbing effect. Upon mixing it with water it becomes runny & can be applied as a face mask. Surprisingly, the mixture does not drip off the face & sticks well until dry. The smell of the face mask is herbal & non irritating.
How To Use It?
Scoop out some product out of the tub into a bowl with the help of the wooden spoon that comes with this face mask. Mix it with milk if you have dry to normal skin. Mix the powder with water/rose water, if you have combination to oily skin. Apply the paste on your face and neck. Leave it to dry for 15 minutes & wash it off with water while giving a scrubbing action.
The face mask actually dries before 15 minutes, hence I spritz little bit water/rose water on my face to keep it on my face for few more minutes, before scrubbing it off. It gives a nice scrubbing action because of the presence of grounded almonds.
I have used Forest Essential Ubtans in the past. The ubtans too needed to be mixed with water/milk to be applied & scrubbed off revealing a nice clean skin. They used to smell very heavenly too. Juicy Chemistry acne control face mask does not smell the same but the scrubbing action & the bright skin tone leaves me happy.
I think the Juicy Chemistry mask suits my acne prone skin better because of the ingredients it contains. It clears skin of the dead skin, blackheads & leaves brighter complexion. It is advised to be used once a week, but I want to use it every day because of the clean feeling it gives to my skin.
In terms of existing acne healing, I did not find much effect. The zits seemed unaffected. It helps to keep pores clean of dirt & grim which accounts for acne generation.
It is a great summer face mask for oily & acne prone skin. It comes in powder form which might leave your bathroom little messy, but the authenticity of the product leaves you in awe. Helps to keep skin clear & smooth taking off dead skin & dullness.
Hope you have used this face mask already since it’s very hot online these days which made me buy it. Let me know what you think about the product?
