Many of you may have seen my previous post on the Shills Acne Purifying Peel-Off Black Mask. To date that is still my most popular post, which really surprised me. Then again, it is a fantastic product and really does work.
Sadly, I learnt that there are a lot of counterfeit Shills products out there, which contain god only knows what harmful ingredients in them.
I was contacted by the only UK seller, www.shills.co.uk, that is authorised to sell genuine Shills products. They wanted me to inform my readers about the counterfeits and to make sure that you purchase an authentic Shills product.
In order to prevent counterfeits, Shills have started adding a holographic authentication sticker on their products.
As you can see, it’s very easy to see and you know that if your Shills product has this sticker on it, that it is a genuine, authentic product.
Shills have also created a checker, so you check the serial code on the Holographic stickers to make sure it’s Authentic – Serial Checker
In case you missed my original post on this Shills mask, here’s some recent pics of it in action and the results from it:-
I have really great results from this mask. I don’t use it too often because I don’t really have oily or acne prone skin. I do have large pores on my nose, cheek and chin area though. So, using this mask every so often, helps to keep them clean and clear.
When you use it, do apply a decently thick layer as through my experience with this mask, I’ve found that thin layers don’t achieve very good results.
DO NOT get it in any facial hair because it will hurt and possibly remove the hairs. Also be aware, if you have a lot of ‘peach fuzz’ it will hurt more, so if you don’t already, I recommend dermaplaning to remove peach fuzz first.
Make sure it is thoroughly dry and when removing, be sure to peel the mask upwards, NOT downwards. Peeling it off upwards, allows the mask to freely pull out any blackheads and sebaceous filaments etc from your pores.
I also recommend using this mask after a bath or shower. It’s actually a myth that you can steam open your pores. They don’t have muscles around their openings to allow them to close and open. What actually happens, is that the steam can help to loosen up the debris. It’s that, that makes blackheads easier to extract.
