The Milkypiggy Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask is known across the internet as the most painful peel-off mask ever. Seriously, you can watch thousands of people on YouTube crying while peeling this mask off. I decided that I want to see how painful this mask actually is, so I ordered it from Althea. In this post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Elizavecca Milkypiggy Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask.
The Elizavecca Milkypiggy Hell-Pore Clean Up Mask promises to dig out blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin from your face. According to the company, the mask is able to get into places that a nose pore strip can’t reach, so it’s supposed to be able to remove a lot of impurities. It’s formulated with Charcoal Extract, which helps extract the dirt and toxins, and Camellia, which leaves the face soft and luminous.
The mask has a really strong perfume smell. I don’t like it, and it’ll probably irritate those who have sensitive skin. The mask is easy enough to spread, and I like to apply an opaque, even layer. I try not to make it too thin, and I concentrate most of the product around my nose. It completely dries after around 30 minutes. You can feel when it’s ready to peel; it’ll be dry to the touch.
So, is it really as painful as the internet makes it out to be? My answer is not really. It kind of hurts around the cheeks where there’s a bit of peach fuzz, but it mostly just feels like any other peel-off mask that I’ve tried. Here’s a tip: make sure to start peeling from the bottom of the face, and peel upwards. After peeling, I obsessively inspected the remnants of the mask; it removed a lot of peach fuzz and dead skin, but it didn’t remove as many blackheads as I was hoping it would.
Overall, it’s a decent peel-off mask, and decently priced at Php500. I don’t mind using it for the rest of the time that I have it, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase it once I use it all up.
Have you had any (painful) experiences with this mask? Let me know in the comments below!
