Most Helpful Positive Review My favorite!
I love this mask! I have been using this since it first came out and am so glad it (along with the other Boscia products) is FINALLY(!!!!!) available at Ulta--I thought this day would never come! I try to get everything at Ulta because their point system is 10x better than that "other big beauty retailer".
Anyhow, back to the product itself... I can see why some people say this might sting a little bit taking it off if they have a lot of peach fuzz on their face but I really don't think it's that bad--just make sure you apply it carefully to stay away from your hairline and eyebrows. I definitely have LESS peach fuzz on my face after using this for years. My skin is very oily, always congested and prone to breakouts. I actually leave this on my face for 1 to 2 hours because I notice it takes more "gunk" out of my pores that way than when I only leave it on for the recommended 30 minutes. Because it is black, when you peel it off your face you can see all the nastiness it pulls out of your pores--it's like a full face biore strip. And my face feels sooo smooth afterward. Just love it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Painful under the skin bumps?
So I had been real curious about this mask ever since we started caring it. My friend got this as gratis and I saw it in her bathroom and asked her about it. She told me she used it once and it broke her out with these huge bumps that were under the skin. She told me I could have it, so thinking okay well we do have completely opposite types of skin as she has dry more sensitive skin and I have oily/normal skin this will be fine. WRONG! I WAS SO WRONG! I have never broken out this badly from anything and this mask really put a number on my skin. I have a very strict skin care routine and after countless brands and trial and error, my skin was finally where I wanted it to be. I used this mask one time and the next morning I had 4 very painful, huge under the skin bumps that still have not gone away. It has been over a week since I've used this mask and two of them are finally going away. I don't think this is an allergic reaction due to trying multiple different brands, masks, face cleaners, toners, moisturizers, etc. What would the odds be that my friend and I would both be allergic to this mask? It is possible but I highly doubt it. So to conclude my long story, I'm highly disappointed with this mask and wouldn't even let my mom try it.

I've been using this mask for years it was great , it was solid black but now anywhere you buy it it comes out clear and peels off like a rubber that globs on your face that's lightly tinted grey!!!! Company is starting to get cheap that makes this product!!!!! No excuse!!!!! I squeeze tube, mix it around and still comes out clear!! No black color at all!!! VERY DISGUSTED TODAY IS 5th TIME I HAD TO RETURN IT!!!!
Bye bye blackheads
Green tea is life from Az
I love the consistency of this mask! It takes out all the nasty blackheads ! I use it once a week and use either my night cream or another mask
Terrible application and removal
Dylan225 from Chicago
This mask is alright , as a skincare junkie I have tried lots of peel of masks and this just is not the one I would recommend. You have to layer on the perfect amount (not too much not too little) or it either doesn't ever dry down or doesn't come off. If you don't get the right thickness it's a pain to remove and will destroy your towels in the process . Use a charcoal clay mask instead
JJ from Santa Cruz
I really like this peel off mask; however, lay it in thick. If you don't, then it doesn't peel off! I thought I had it on thick enough but ended up washing off half bc I was tired of peeling off tiny little pieces. What a waste of product. When you get it right it does work well. Stay away from any hair, it will make your eyes water, it's just that good! I am 35 with med/fair skin.
Mask should not be runny
Lena from Philadelphia PA
I don't know what went wrong with this product. It was grey and watery when it should have been black. I put it on my face and it literally started to drop off my face. I have used this product before and loved it, but something went wrong with the item I purchased - it should not be a watered down grey. It appears the liquids had separated.
BEST PEEL OFF MASK
Nighty from Greenfield
I love this product ! literally can see your blackheads on the mask as your peeling it ! for better results clean your face before using this so your pores open up and this mask can come in and pull out all the black heads ! I love this so much !
Worked for me.
Roxxxiem from Bakersfield, CA
Im very into skin care and clean my face about 2-3x a week. I received a sample of this and i used it primarily on my T-zone focusing on my chin and nose. I left it on while cleaning my room. Soon as I was done I went to check on it and made sure it had dried on my skin. I peeled it off slowly and looked closely at it and I could see dead skin and blackheads on it which I was surprised because I had previously already used those Biore nose strips. Afterwards my skin felt smooth and soft. Will definitely be buying the full size. Others that are giving it a negative review are obviously not using it the right way. Putting too much of the product on wont allow it to dry properly.
not the greatest
fay from ohio
I put it on for 30 minutes as directed. extremely difficult to peel off. A lot of pieces were not coming off, had to be washed off.

Strips your skin and will not help acne
C from Virginia
For the money this was very disappointing. Very hard (and uncomfortable...) to peel off, leaves a hot mess, have used it several times wanting to give it a fair shot and have never seen any benefits from using it. I have used their face wash and really enjoyed it, but this one is a miss unfortunately.
Grey and clear
Tita from Rhode Island
Its not black, its more of a runny clear and grey mixture of a complete mess. It doesnt dry and its just an awful product to waste your money on
Burns my eyes..
Jen from New York
I've been using the same tube for a while and it has kept its consistency and color. I obviously avoid my eyes/lids, but even as it goes around the bridge of my nose and cheeks, my eyes start burning and watering every time. My skin has never reacted to it, and my skin is smooth when I peel it off, but the burning eyes are unpleasant. I like it, but for this price, I won't buy it again.
Skincareguru from Kahului
Purchased and formula was separated. It came out clear with black streaks. Very disappointed!!!
Not for me
Red Eye from Fresno, Ca
All it did was pull my face hairs. Kinda disappointing for the price I payed.
Got as a sample, wasn't impressed
Oily skin from Houston, TX
I got this as a sample, used entire bottle. I have used it just on nose area, t-zone, all over face so multiple applications. Really the only area I can see a difference is around my nose. It does feel smother, not necessarily does it pull out the blackheads. Like I said, I didn't buy this and I would not buy it having used it now. Other areas of my face just feel like I cleaned my face, I still find random blackheads on my cheeks and temple areas.

Here's a lil tip for anyone who having a problem with the face mask coming out grayish try leaving the bottle upside down like the picture and that helped me with not getting that water down grey stuff coming out !
Upset I can no longer return
Golden from LA
I purchased this and it worked great. It was black and full coverage. Now it's just grey and runny. Adding multiple layers doesn't help. I tried shaking it to see if it would help and it didn't. I still have a good amount left but now it's just a waste
Not for me
Alex from Fresno CA
I purchased this product when it was on sale, glad I did. This product did not work for me... Legit it smells like Elmer's glue with black coloring in it.
Give it a go
Jbeauty from Milwaukee
I received this in a beauty kit and was hesitant to try because it's a peel. I have not had a positive experience with peels in the past. However, with that being said, I quite like this one very much. Like others have noted, the first time will be painful because it's your first time. Afterward, peeling becomes a breeze and results will be revealed after a couple applications. I'm pleasantly surprised how smooth my skin has become after using this. I liked seeing the results after using up my deluxe bottle that I decided to get the full size. I'll be gifting my free bottle that I received with my purchase to my sister! Also, it's not supposed to come out grey. It's supposed to be black. So I'd recommend returning if you receive it like how others commented.
Amy from Connecticut
I originally got a sample of this from a past purchase and I used it after steaming my face and it worked to well to remove blackheads and brighten skin. After I ran out of the sample, I had to buy it again. I use it once a week and have definitely noticed and improvement in the texture of my skin, it's much smoother.
Terry from San José, Ca
I bought this product during Ulta's 21 day sale. It works well, mask dries pretty fast and easy to peel off. My skin does look brighter after use. It works great for the sale price, but for the full price I've used better products.
SBrand from WI
Comes out of the tube grey instead of black. Almost like it's separated. Takes forever to dry down, and then doesn't peel off.
Waste of money
Noor from Baltimore
It acts just like a mask it does not remove anything Don't fall for it
Not worth it
GIGI from San Bernardino
It doesn't remove any blackheads at all.
Came out clear/murky grey
Nicole from Philadelphia, PA
Did this formula change? I've used this mask for years. After not purchasing for a while I picked up a bottle and it seems to be defective. It is coming out a weird grey/clear like the formula separated. I have never had this happen but after going on multiple reviews on various sites, I no longer feel like this is a random fluke. Seems to be happening to quite a few people. Will be returning this item
