Shills Black Mask Purifying Peel-Off Mask Review

Shills Black Mask Purifying Peel-Off Mask Review

I might be in my mid forties but I still get pesky blackheads, they might not be big ones, but on my nose and cheek area I do have larger pores. They are a lot better than they used to be and have reduced a lot but I still like to do some kind of mask or treatment every couple of weeks or so, to keep my face clear.


The Shills Black Mask Purifying Peel-Off Mask is particularly awesome for this.  You can use it all over your face or just in the areas you need it, like I have done on the photo below.



This black peel off mask is very thick, doesn’t have the greatest of smells and you have to make sure you put a thick layer of it on your skin. I’ve learnt that if I don’t, then it doesn’t do such a good job. When I say thick, I really do mean thick. I apply it with a make up brush, as it’s very messy otherwise and I coat the areas several times to build up a nice thick layer. I then leave it to dry which usually takes 20-30 mins, sometimes longer but basically just make sure it is completely dry before you peel it off.

I will also stress, do not get this in you hair or eyebrows and if you’re a guy, do not let it get on your beard because trust me it will hurt like a b***h to peel it off and will most likely remove hairs too.


When it is dry, peel from the bottom and pull upwards as this helps to pull the blackheads and filaments out of your pores more easily. This mask can be fairly painful to remove, I’m not going to lie. I have very sensitive skin and it does make my eyes water but it’s nothing I can’t stand.

The results though, are amazing. This masks pulls off dead skin, tiny hairs and of course black heads. I don’t have loads and the ones I do have are very small, so pore strips don’t tend to be able to grasp onto them and pull them out whereas this mask, as long as it’s applied thickly, pulls them out with no problem.

Just look at what it pulled out of my nose, chin and cheek area on these close up photos. I know, it’s pretty gross!




The results though are definitely worth the pain. I’m left with baby soft skin, and clean pores.  I wouldn’t recommend doing this too often depending on your skin type and how your pores are. I usually do it every couple of weeks or so. It is definitely worth the money for what it does.


Where Can I buy It?

I purchased my Shills Black Mask Purifying Peel-Off Mask from Amazon. It was really quick as it was available on Prime for next day delivery. I really do recommend this mask for removing blackheads. It absolutely works!

    So satisfying but so gross!! I’m so bad at applying masks like this I always get it in my eyebrows or hairline! Thanks for the tip on peeling up, I always peel down so will need to try this!

    • haha yes it is pretty gross but it does work. I always use a spare or older make-up brush to apply, makes it so much easier to not get it everywhere. Also, I’m not sure I put it in the post, but steaming the face before hand also will help open the pores and make the mask pull out more blackheads (I’m sure you already know that anyway;) ) Thanks for commenting too! 🙂

    I have about four blackheads on my cheeks that don’t go away. Perhaps this mask *so gross, yes, Sarah* could do some work. but it is really a thick one.

    • It is really good, I would think it would depend just how stubborn and deep in your skin they are. Maybe a good steam beforehand might work to open your pores and allow removal. Otherwise, I’d get myself a good comedone extract, and some needles to use to extract it. I do that with stubborn ones & any breakouts and they heal in super quick time. 🙂

      • princessoftherain

        Well, I want to avoid the needles! 😀 Lol… but yes, the steam I will do it, I used to have once every two weeks, but it’s something I don’t do anymore and I should. So yes, I will start with it but once a week and see if they finally leave. There are those tools that are like needles but they are not needles in fact, with a circle to extract the blackhead. I will see that, because they have been there for a long time now. I exfoliate but it seems it’s never enough. Thanks, Pretty One, and by the way, congratulations on your new blog theme! xoxoxo

  • I’ve seen this one on eBay, it’s a dupe for the Boscia black mask isn’t it? I do love the feeling of pulling off masks like this, it’s very satisfying. My only worry is that masks like this can be a bit harsh on the skin. I prefer a Korean modeling mask which is much gentler, have you tried them?

    • Thanks for commenting! 🙂 I think it is a dupe for Boscia black mask, yes. 🙂 I actually haven’t tried a modeling mask. I’ve been thinking about getting some to try in my next haul. 🙂 I have really sensitive skin and since I’ve been dermaplaning there are no vellus hairs to pull out now, so it’s no longer as painful to take off and I think that’s why it can feel like it’s pulling your skin off lol It’s not really harsh if you just use it on your nose/chin areas, it only removes dead skin and of course blackheads. When you see videos of people using it, 9/10 it looks harsh because it’s ripping their vellus hairs out lol Tell you what though, skin is baby soft afterwards. 😀

        Hi Dear, you might know this: I have just checked your Amazon Link and the item is currently unavailable?

        • Thanks for letting me know, I’ve just updated it, so should be working now. 🙂

          • zllvs

            I should have realized that I was visiting amazon uk, and I don’t know if I can order from there but I’ll check about the shipping or if they can send it from the us through that link. Hugs!

    LOVING the close up photos.. not to sound weird. Love seeing something that works! My sister actually has this in the bathroom cupboard which she bought from eBay or Amazon quite some time a go. It didn’t seem to work well for her but maybe I should now go and give it a go myself. Thanks for the review lovely! x

    • Thanks for commenting! 😀 lol I know what you mean – it’s always good to see something has worked with these kinds of products. My one biggest tip for this product is to make sure to apply quite thickly, and so as there are no ‘air bubbles’ you’ll find as you apply it, it kind of separates a little on the skin, just reapply over those areas. If you apply thinly all over it doesn’t seem to pull much out at all. For best results I would recommend using after a hot bath or shower, or just steam your nose area or face,wherever you’re putting it basically, for around 5 mins or so, to open the pores. I still use this regularly and still love it. 😀

    Awesome your skin looks incredible! I so hope it works on my son’s skin he is mid teens and very black head prone 🙁 So I am hoping this is the answer.
    Great review – great pics lol like the comment below it’s good to see results from a product!

    • hehe yeah, it’s a tad on the gross side and I could have just simply posted a review with no pics but I think it’s great to be able to actually see evidence that a product does work – even if it does look yucky haha

      I hope your son gets good results from it. The trick is steaming pores open first and applying a thick layer. Thin yields poor results, which I found the first time I used it. I wouldn’t be without this product now though.
