Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex Review:
Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex is one of the popular products from the high-end brand Sulwhasoo. It is a peel-off type of mask which has a pretty interesting manner of usage. I don’t really own any peel-off mask nor do I recall any experience with this kind of product so I am really new to this. My experience with this product would most likely dictate if I would need a peel-off mask in my skincare routine.

Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex Review:
Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex comes in a fuzz-free squeeze type of tube which I really like because it is easier to control the amount of product, not to mention more hygienic than any other type of packaging. This peel-off mask, naturally, comes with a pretty hanbang scent –it’s practically herbal with a dash of spice on its note!
The color of this mask is so beautiful, as you can tell from the photo. It is similar to melted brown sugar or simply, honey. The consistency is so rich and thick and it is very sticky which makes it a bit hard to work on my face, honestly.
The prescribed usage of this peel-off mask is a bit strange because, you are to apply this after your serum. Now, that is such a waste if you think about it but I follow it anyway because I am a good follower.☺ Since I don’t really use serums, I use it right after my toner or essence.
When I first used this, I applied it very thinly on my face –just enough to cover my entire skin but then I got jealous of people who are able to peel-off this mask in one piece so I tried applying it more lavishly and that basically resolves the issue.
Whether I applied this thinly or generously, doesn’t really change the fact that it is a peel off mask that is such a breeze to remove. I’ve read people complain how it is painful to remove peel-off masks and this one is definitely not one of those!
Given its texture, it doesn’t really take long to fully dry on my face but I let it sit for longer because I want to maximize the effects as much as I can or so I thought. Upon peeling off the mask my face is instantly brighter and noticeably clearer!
I feel that it somehow worked on my dead skin cells because my face feels really clean! My face is so even-out and smooth which is important to note because I was expecting my face to be stiff after using this. With that said, I am pretty impressed with Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex it does its job really well.
However, I’m not entirely blown away so I probably won’t be repurchasing this product. After all, I am lazy skincare junkie and I find this step rather tedious. I would probably stick with my wash-offs for now.
But for those who are into peel-off masks, I would definitely recommend to give Sulwhasoo Clarifying Mask Ex a try! I feel that it would work with any skin type because it feels gentle on the skin too!
