I recently got this from Japan. I really like using it for the Tzone. (nose area) It sticks really really well to the skin, thus some people complain it is quite painful to remove. But I like using it in Nose T zone area. It also removes small facial hairs which I do not mind at all Smile It'd black and gooeey then you have to peel it off. I usually follow this with a toner Smile

Any body use it? Smile

I also have this mask.

I think it's so painful to use Laughing but I also love using it around the nose area because I can really see those dirty stuff come off since the mask is black. But then . . i dont think I will buy it again after I finish the tube coz it's too painful for me Very Happy

I've tried this mask before, but I don't really like it as it doesn't clean well nor have very effective whitening effect. I didn't repurchase after I've finished the tube.

Hi joziegrozy, i just finished my tube of kose mask this week. i have to warn my mom before using it cause it scares her so bad when she seems me wearing it Laughing if you like this, you should definitely try DHC peel-off pack, it's much stronger and pulls a lot more gunk out and is a lot cheaper on the pocket--about $9. let me warn you though--it's much more painful than the kose mask, but less painful than a biore strip!

i've used this mask several times over the past two months. particularly after being in the sun more than i like. it's whitening effects were subtle yet effective after using it several times.

not too painful for me.

i love the other kose products as well.

i finished a tube of this just last week.

despite the packaging saying that the mask would need about twenty minutes to dry, i found that it needed a lot longer. if i waited until the mask was completely dry, then it came off quite well.

i was quite sick for a few weeks. my skin consequently was dry and flaky. i found this mask was great in lifting off the dead flaky skin. i followed with a deep moisturising marine mask by borghese, and my skin was super smooth after.

however, it did not remove congestion as it promised, and did pull out a lot of fine hairs. the other thing was, i had to be very careful when applying around the hair line, as it was very difficut to get it out of my hair at the end of the treatment. i did not notice a whitening effect, and that is not why i was using this product.

compared to my normal exfoliation routine (jurlique face wash cream daily, and decleor clay and herbal mask weekly, biore nose strip every now and again) i would say this did ok. i prefer the fresh look my skin has after the decleor mask and the gentler approach, but if you like to inspect a peel off mask to see the dead skin you have successfuly removed, then the kose mask is the one for you. i can however understand that some would find it painful.

hope this helps.

Oh, I used this about two years ago. So painful....You can see the dirty stuff peeled off, but you will also find your pores grow bigger. And it doesn't help with whitening.

I never buy it again!

Oh, I've tried this mask before as well. It was okay. I liked how it actually really seemed to take the gunk out of my pores - like a face-sized biore nose strip... however, I did think it was a bit harsh and irritating to the skin so I used up what I had and didn't buy anymore.

Dont like this at all, in fact one of the worst peel off mask i've used. Not only is it hard to remove, i can see black dots stuck in my pores after i peeled it off, they r not blackheads, but the mask itself. yes and i did let the mask dried completely b4 i peeled.

I used to use this on my t zone. However after I started using AHA/BHA and peels regularly, I have no need for this anymore. Now I have 1 or 2 full size tubes of this sitting in my closet sigh.

This being one of the very first *black* peel off mask in the market, I off course fell for the marketing ploy and tried it. I still use it on and off but prefer Givenchy's Black to White peel off mask which is softer on and gentler to the skin. Also experienced a definite, more brighter skin tone than the Kose one ever gave. Biotherm's black peel off mask isn't too bad too but for the cleanest feel, I must say that Kose's the best for that. I hardly use it anymore but my lil sis likes it for it's deep cleansing effect.

I tried this before, and I liked it, it seemed to take out the gunk in some clogged pores though I agree it was messy and a bit painful to remove. I haven't repurchased a tube yet though. I might in the future if I see it and have the cash to spare.

I had it when it just launched and it didn't work for me either!

It did have immediate effect though.

Wouldn't recommend it.
