Most Helpful Positive Review Great mask for dry winter!
This is a great mask for dry winter season. I have combination, acne prone skin and I love it. I used it 2-3 times a week and it's a wonder for softening skin and bringing moisture back after a day outdoors.
It has a strong nature honey scent - if you don't like this, stay away from this product. The scent doesn't really dissipate and even lasts a few minutes after you wash it off.
One major recommendation is to store this Upside-down!
If you store it rightside-up, the honey may separate from the black sugar. You'll end up with this goopy honey layer on top, and the black sugar sitting at the bottom. However, I found that storing it upside down prevents this from happening and keeps the mask mixed (just make sure you screw it closed well, but it's not really prone to leaking since its so thick anyway). I think this is because the shape of the container is wider at the top than at the bottom, so if you store it upside down there's more space for it to mix.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for sensitive skin
Normally, I love Skinfood products, and I wanted to love this one as well - honey, sugar! This mask is really of two parts - an oily film that sits on top, and then the "sugar" of the mask sitting on the bottom. You need to mix it well (because shaking the container doesn't work) before using it. I found it heavy, and I was a little suspicious about the oil, but gave it a shot. It doesn't dry solid, but remains somewhat oily. What happened is that this product broke me out nearly overnight after one use. It's about a week later and my skin is starting to settle down again. I was a little bummed to have such a poor reaction after one use (and a nearly full container and no way to return it), so I ended up using it as a light body scrub, since the sugar in it isn't as large grain as a regular scrub.

I will say first off that this mask smells awful to me, sweet but kind of like a can of chewing tobacco with honey added. That's definitely not a deal-breaker though. I keep using it regardless of the smell because it makes my skin look and feel amazing. The results are similar to another mask i use by Yensa, but this one is cheaper and rinses off cleaner. I'd recommend this to a friend for sure, and I'll be buying more when i run out (which will be a while given the size of the container).
Sensitive Skin Success!
djane from KY
I have very very very sensitive skin. My skin easily goes from oily to the touch to flaking off and bleeding. Since using this mask once a week and a new skincare routine ( oil, wash, toner, Niacinamide serum, lotion) my skin has not been oily OR flaky. I do recommend it!!!
Great but harder to wash off
StephCee from San Diego, CA
I prefer the strawberry or black sugar one. The honey is very hard to wash off even with hot water and face wash. The effects are still as good as the other reviews are saying! It's even better for acne if you mix in some cinnamon to kill acne bacteria!
Works great for sensitive skin
Ed from SoCal
I have very sensitive skin, so chemical exfoliating dries out my skin no matter what I do. This product is a great alternative!
It smells amazing, and the sugar granules do their job. Leaves my skin feeling super smooth and bright.
Smells Good Enough To Eat
Allie from Berlin CT
Love it-Skin Food is a great brand anyway-since there's a lot of honey in this I thought it would be sticky and hard to remove but it isn't at all. The sugar granules are bigger than I'm used to but it's nice.
Love the smell and the quality
Mandyluv94 from Virginia Beach, VA
I use it every Sunday morning and sometimes I feel like I don't need to wear makeup after using it because my skin is fresh and less oily
Weekly Holy grail
Bina from Los Angeles CA
Wish Ulta had more Korean beauty items. Their new Korean beauty items are under 'global'. I stock up on this one. Once or twice a week, I put it all over my face, scrub medium hard and then let it sit for 5 minutes. Then I hop in the shower and use the remainder from my fave to scrub my neck and chest. Super soft skin.
Best Mask Ever!
sasstepper from Seattle, WA
I use this mask at least once a week, if not more. I try to use it on the days I wash my hair. This is my third time purchasing it, which speaks volumes.
First off this product is super affordable, I think it's like 8-12 dollars.
This mask shows instant results on your skin. It's honey and black sugar. The black sugar granulates are exfoliating while the honey is hydrating and restorative (probably due to the fact that honey is a natural antibiotic and has many other positive qualities).
When I wash this mask off, my skin feels smooth, soft, hydrated, and amazing overall. I will continue to purchase this mask as long as it keeps doing me justice!
A staple in my skincare routine
Olisea from Kansas City
This isn't like a typical mask. I use it as more of a pre-deep cleansing scrub that I prefer to apply prior to showering(to make for easy cleanup as it does not ever dry down). It has worked wonders for my acne scars. The sugar provides some serious exfoliation to even out textured skin while the honey helps soothe and heal. The mixture does tend to separate between uses but easily mixes back together. I very much enjoy the sweet honey smell and don't find it to be overwhelming at all. Family and friends have even noticed/complimented on my smoother more radiant skin. Totally recommend this product!
Feels really relaxing and moisturizing
Hannah from Federal Way
I've used a couple of different face masks before such as sheet masks and ones that come in tubes. But this is the first mask that felt really nice on my skin. Maybe because it's made from honey, but it also feels like it's healing past acne scars on my face. It feels very moisturizing and soothing, and I absolutely love the smell! It smells like honey and it's very sweet.
Rich and hydrating
KimboSlice from Dallas Tx
I absolutely love this mask. I saw it used online and thought it looked so rich and exfoliating and I wasn't disappointed. I personally love the smell it sells smells just like honey. My husband doesn't like the smell but I don't mind it. really makes your face feel smooth and moisturized after each use I use this about three times a week. would definitely buy it again
The best face mask I've had in years
Devon from Waxhaw, NC
I have sensitive combination skin, but more dry and patchy most days. Most face masks leave my skin red, dry and blotchy, with a slight burning feeling...even some from Lush Cosmetics. This one did not leave red markings, or burn (which is a miracle to me bc I have ultra sensitive skin). I like the exfoliant it's mild but I really rubbed it into my skin right when I put it on and it felt like great exfoliant. I left it on for a little more than 20 min and rubbed it in really well while I rinsed it off. It removed my patchy flakes and didn't dry me out like most masks do. Didn't feel like I need moisturizer but I put it on an hour after the mask and applied my makeup. My makeup looked really nice, no bumpy, patchy, ugly dry spots, just smooth. :] I'm happy, hopefully I can find a larger container.
avant gardener from Montreal
I went looking for a mask with a tall order in mind: exfoliating, moisturizing, silicone-free, and reasonably priced. So happy I found this product. It has really helped with the scaly/dry feeling my topical retinoids can leave behind.
For those concerned about the smell: I didn't find it particularly unpleasant or strong. To me, it smells like the honey you'd keep in your pantry. The scent does, however, linger a while. I used it in the evening and still smelled it on my face the next morning after cleansing and applying other products. (Kinda crazy.) Not a dealbreaker for me, but something to keep in mind!
The smell is terribly strong
Penny from Louisiana
It's an ok mask. Definitely wouldn't use it a lot. Hate the smell and it feels pretty heavy on my skin.
Lydia from Dallas
This has been by far the best mask I've used. I used this product the week of my wedding and my husband noticed the difference and he compliment me on my skin. I have been recommending it to anyone who would listen! My holy grail!!
Anastacia from IL
I throughly enjoy this product & will continue to buy. This has done my face wonders here in the winter. I have very oily skin so I have to be careful what I put on my face. So normally I am using scrubs & masks to take out impurities & scrubs to exfoliate. So I was skeptical due to the honey, but for the price thought I would try it. I love it! My face especially in the winter it can get dry & dull looking. This not only does the exfoliation part, but the honey nourishes & hydrates my skin without being a heavy oil or cream that breaks my face out. My face feels smooth, hydrated & has a nice glow after using it. I will definently purchase this again. & the price is awesome!
The smell 🤢
Kenzie from USA
The mask itself is fine (not a scrub like consistency, definitely honey based) but it smells soooo bad! It doesn't smell like honey at all
This mask makes my skin glow.
LB from Dallas, Tx
Seriously, this mask is amazing. For reference, I have normal-dry skin that isn't sensitive. I purchased it mainly to help exfoliate away the dead skin caused by my chemical exfoliants, but it did so much more than that. After using it, my skin is seriously so soft - hardly any dead skin left. The honey really does soothe any redness and leaves my skin looking more even-toned with a visible glow where my skin looks supple and healthy. The oils in this mask leave my face feeling soft and moisturized even into the next day. The scent is strong (there is added fragrance) like honey with something else I can't put my finger on, but I don't mind the scent at all. As the product states, the sugar does separate a bit from the honey in the tub but I just use a clean butter knife to stir it around and get some out to apply to my face. No problem at all. I'll definitely be repurchasing this mask - instant HG.
Surprisingly Instant Results!
callmefafi from Lake Monroe, FL
For best results apply to clean skin, dry or damp. I used a silicone mask brush to apply a thin layer. Make sure you mix the mask before use. I left on for about 15-20 minutes and removed with a muslin cloth. Skin was noticeably brighter, radiant immediately after use. Also skin was very smooth and soft to the touch. Recommend using only once a week and applying a sheet mask, a day or two after for hydration. Definitely recommend. I love honey as I drink tea almost every day. The smell of honey didn't bother me in the least.
Reveals Soft, Smooth Skin
RVR from San Diego, CA
This mask is a staple in my weekend pamper routine. Used properly, it has the ability to beautifully exfoliate and smoothen your skin! I love how my skin feels after using this.
A few tips: 1) stir product before using, as some of the sugar settles in the bottom of the jar, 2) apply to wet skin (best applied with a synthetic paddle brush), and 3) don't forget to moisturize afterwards, to get maximum benefits!
Best. Scrub. Ever.
Anna from New York
Exfoliates likes dream, then when left on as a mask for 10 minutes it leaves my skin so soft and hydrated! Yes, the smell is strong, but that's because it's REAL honey, not some fake fragrance. The product does separate a little in-between uses because, again, it's made with real honey, so you can either shake the container or just use the finger you'll eventually apply it with to stir it up yourself. I have pretty dry/dull skin so I need to exfoliate, but it's so hard to find one that won't tear up or dry out my skin, but this one is just perfect!!
Beany from Orange County
I used this as a mask and before washing it off I use it as an exfoliating scrub!
I have dry skin and this product was hydration heaven in just ten minutes! Love it and will be buying it again
PrincessK from Bloomington,Il
Absolutely love this wash off mask! My skin is so smooth and moisturized after using this. Great product and will purchase again!
Charlotte from VA
Product is extremely heavy, consistency and fragrance wise. The smell is extremely unpleasant and strong, sort of a like an unnatural, sickly-sweet scent. The product is also difficult to use because the product separates in the tub so you'll be left with the layer of honey on the surface and the sugar in the bottom.
Fav Face Mask
Andie from Oregon
I love love love how this makes my skin feel! So smooth and definitely helps clear up my acne. Will repurchase again and again.
