Using a similar technology to the Luminizing Black Mask I previously reviewed, the Pore Purifying Black Strips are formulated with Activated Charcoal, Silica, Witch Hazel Extract, Peony Root Extract, Menthol, Jojoba and Willowherb to absorb excess oil and impurities, exfoliate, tighten pores and deposit potent botanicals and antioxidants into the skin.
