Of course, the packaging is Black in colour! A box comes with 6 sets of mask.
Take a look : the mask all in black !
Closer look :
This mask is one of the best designed mask i’ve ever used. Probably the best. It fits perfectly into the skin thanks to it’s ‘3D line’ that is in the centre of the mask. It even fits the chin perfectly (look at the photos above at how well it fit the chin area even!) ! Superb design and fitting. It covers up the whole face too! It covers up the eyes as well, so when you’re using it, just lie down,close your eyes, relax and enjoy yourself!
The fitting was so good that i wanted to keep the mask after using it so that i could re-use them as my ‘lotion mask’.
Here is Leeminji’s blog that shows how well it fits on the face , and a clearer look of the 3D line. :

1/ Binchotan Charcoal
Known also as white charcoal and is a traditional charcoal of Japan. It dates to the Edo period, when during the Genroku era, a craftsman named Bitchū-ya Chōzaemon (備中屋 長左衛門) began to produce it in Tanabe, Wakayama. The raw material is oak, specifically ubame oak (Quercus phillyraeoides), now the official tree of Wakayama Prefecture. Wakayama continues to be a major producer of high-quality charcoal, with the town of Minabe, Wakayama producing more binchō-tan than any other town in Japan. Binchōtan is a type of Lump charcoal or Hardwood charcoal.
Binchotan white charcoal make excellent ingredients for skin care products as the former has excellent cleansing quality. At the same time, such products can preserve your skin by preventing oxidization.
Bincho charcoal is known to have high porosity. Various impurities or foreign matter will be absorbed on the wide surface area of the charcoal. When air passes, and if humidity is high, the charcoal will adsorb the moisture, and air will be converted to dry. If the air is too dry, then the charcoal will discharge its moisture, thus adjusting the humidity in the air. This makes it an excellent humidity regulator. It also has high mineral content such as calcium, potassium, sodium and iron.
Bincho charcoal has other benefits, too: it absorbs unpleasant room odours and harmful substances, generates negative ions that will put people in a better frame of mind, and emits far-infrared that helps to improve blood circulation.
Also known as “Black Diamond”, bincho charcoal products are well received in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Over the years, many uses have been created for household to bedding and personal care. Environmentally-friendly, bincho charcoal products are able to regain effectiveness with easy maintenance.
Niacinamide is commonly known as Vitamin B3 and is an effective skin lightening compound that works by inhibiting melanosome transfer from
melanocytes to keratinocytes.
Glucose is a natural component of the stratum corneum layers of skin that binds water and hydrates skin. Glucose moisturizers, including Methyl gluceth-10 and -20, are water-soluble emollients (allow oil and water to mix), humectants (water retention) and moisturizers derived naturally from corn sugar and corn starch.
Methyl Gluceth is considered a special moisturizing agent due to its moisture retentive qualities and ability to open pores and follicles. Its therapeutic uses include atopic eczema, clogged pores, skin dryness, roughness and itching, wrinkles. It is noted for its safety and mildness that imparts a smooth and silky feel on the skin. It is frequently used in creams and cosmetics along with other ingredients to improve skin hydration.
Love, love, love this mask! Not only it is designed well, it fits perfectly on your face, and it gives a whitening effect !
My skin was peeling and so dry due to the M2 Skincare that i’ve been using, and i decided to try this mask. I fell asleep and woke up about 1 hour later, took off the mask, and my face was really white and it was all plumped up and hydrated that i couldn’t notice the peeling of my skin ! However, the after texture if rather sticky, so i had to rinse my face with warm water – otherwise, i’d usually not waste the mask essence and continue directly with my skincare routine.
My pores weren’t as obvious probably due to the charcoal, and my face was really radiant and bright! Happy
In a heartbeat 100% ! But since it’s rather expensive, i’d only use it on very important occasions!
