|Léonie Blackhead Removing Peel-off Mask|
When I was asked if I would like to review the Léonie Blackhead Removing Peel-off Mask, I
was perfectly honest with the PR rep that I had very nice skin and no
blackheads. However, my nose is quite
oily in the summer and being a deep cleansing mask, I thought this newly
launched product might
be a wonderful normalizing fix so I decided to review it.
This is a black mask with activated charcoal, grapefruit,
lemon peel, and rosemary extracts for pulling impurities and toning the
skin. Since my complexion is dry except for my current bout of oiliness on
the nose, I only applied this mask to my freshly washed nose. According to

This did strip oil, but I do not think this mask was for
me with the extreme tightening sensation or the feat of removing it. Those
with extremely oily complexions with blackheads and pimples probably would have
a more favorable opinion.
The company has a video to explain the mask in
detail. If this sounds like a product that could help you, then do check
out the video for a better understanding.
The LéonieBlackhead Removing Peel-Off Mask normally will retail on Amazon for $28 for
a 3.4 oz. tube. To celebrate it’s August 1 launch, the price drops to $17.
