Well, there's always a first time for everything in life..!!
You must be thinking today that why I started this blog with a not so hypothetical sentence... Yeah, it's because, it was my first time when I went for buying or using an activated charcoal mask.
When I entered in my 25, I started seeing lots of changes to my face skin. Changes like, it became more and more sensitive and could get pimples in just one day of travelling out. Due to this, I properly started taking care of my skin and the reason you are reading all these blogs...
Today is all about my experience with UrbanGabru Charcoal Black Peel Off Mask so, let's directly jump into that.

Why I chose UrbanGabru Charcoal Black Peel Off Mask?
I wanted a charcoal peel off mask that not just removes dirt, impurities from my face but could also remove blackheads, whiteheads and deeply detoxify my skin. So, I landed up buying UrbanGabru Charcoal Peel Off Mask over any other. It has natural ingredients that helps in removing excess oil, dead skin cells, unclog skin pores, brighten up our skin and works over removing blackheads and whiteheads.
MRP: Rs. 350 (for 60 gm)
Price: Rs. 199 on discount
Available On: The product is available on Nykaa, Flipkart and Amazon
Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
It comes in classic black flip-flop tube packaging with an outer cardboard container. Flip-flop tubes are easy to use and dismisses any chances of product wastage. Also, they are extremely travel friendly and needs less space in bag so, I like them more over tub containers.
It has smooth, creamy black texture which is not so runny or thick. It feels perfect while applying.
Also, the fragrance is the best part of it. It has very mild and cooling effect fragrance which feels very fresh and breezy.
Is it Unisex?
Of course, it is. UrbanGabru charcoal peel off mask is suitable for both men and women.
But in case, you are having acne prone skin or extremely dry-sensitive skin so, peel off masks aren't suitable for you. I am not talking about this product in particular but any activated charcoal peel off mask would cause irritation to your skin as they are meant to peel off dead skin cells from your face. In that case, you may go for activated charcoal face packs instead of peel offs.
How To Use
STEP-1: Clean your face with lukewarm water and use a soft towel to pat dry
STEP-2: If you are having enough time, I would recommend you to steam your face so that, any dirt, impurities and blackheads/whiteheads would come off easily.
STEP-3: Apply the mask on your face and leaving the eye area. Make sure that you apply enough product and an even layer of it which would not be so thick or thin.
STEP-4: Let it dry for around 15-20 minutes until it doesn't feel sticky
STEP-5: Once completely dry, gently peel off in down to upward direction. If you feel that peeling becomes painful for you and you cannot bear it anymore then you can even wash it off. It easily comes off with water when you wash it properly.
STEP-6: Rinse your face with cold water after peeling it and apply some moisturizer.
My Personal Experience
As I said, It was the first time I am going to use any charcoal peel off mask so, couldn't tell you by comparing it with any other brand but I can tell you what and how I felt after using it.
I have a combination skin type that gets extra oil around the T-zone area of my face. I bought this product specifically for using it over my nose and forehead.
Before applying it, the best practice is to use some hot water steam to loosen up your clogged pores but as I didn't have any blackheads/whiteheads so, I skipped this step and normally cleanse my face with lukewarm water.
After that, I applied a generous amount of peel off mask over my nose and forehead and left it for 10 minutes. I didn't expect much from the charcoal product but, it did a very good job beyond my expectations.
The moment I peel it off, my skin feels so smooth, bright and clear and I felt happy choosing it over any other brand.
If you have blackheads/whiteheads then, you might feel that all your blackheads/whiteheads didn't completely pulled out in first go. You may need to use it once a week regularly to clear out your blackheads completely. Also, the duration that how frequently you need to use it depends upon the fact that how deepen and old your blackheads/whiteheads are. But the time period should not be very frequently and not more than 1 time in a week.
I have decided to use it two times in a month for my skin.
Q 1. Is it easy to peel off?
- Yes, it is very gentle to our skin and easily peel off. Also, it does not require much time to get dry.
Q 2. Is there any ingredient which can cause reaction or allergy?
- Not really, it is completely free from harsh chemicals so, it would not cause any side-effects or allergic reactions
Q 3. Does it really removes blackheads and whiteheads?
- Can't tell you exactly as I didn't have the issue of blackheads or whiteheads. I used it to deeply cleanse and brighten up my skin which it did extremely well
Q 4. How frequently we can use any charcoal peel off mask?
- Twice in a month would be sufficient if you do not have blackheads or whiteheads problem. It would help in removing dead skin and impurities from your skin. If you are having issue of blackheads/whiteheads then you can use it once in a week
