When I finally got my hands on Skin Food Black Sesame Hot Mask, I was SUPER thrilled! Black sesame has always been one of the staples in Chinese culture and is widely known for its health and beauty benefits to internal organs, skin and hair.
The mask comes in a cute little tub and contains black sesame extracts, rich phospholipids and vitamin E to deeply cleanse your pores while leaving it soft and refreshed. All you have to do is massage it gently onto your face in a circular motion, leave it on for 3-5 minutes and rinse off.
The texture is a little thick and gooey but once I put it on, it dissolved into my skin and left behind these little black sesame seeds. The heating sensation was very mild and only lasted a few seconds. My face felt very clean and soft afterwards with no dry, tight feeling. The best part is the smell. This baby smells just like real black sesame and I was so tempted to just eat the whole tub! If only I can get some good black sesame paste (芝麻糊) in Chicago *sigh*
