Review: Timeless Truth Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask*

Recently I received a Timeless Truth Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask* to trial; claiming to offer, "A breakthrough in skincare technology using a totally unique and patented Functionality Cloth that instantly brightens, smoothes, firms and hydrates the skin. The black powder impregnated in the cloth is the product of Bamboo Charcoal Extract created at very high temperature (around 800°C). This particular powder has been proven to be highly absorbent and deep cleansing." I am all for a good deep cleansing mask and have been keen to try more sheet masks, so I was pretty excited to give this a try! This mask is described as perfect for those with congested skin, which is me down to a T.
Timeless Truth Charcoal Detox Brightening Mask Review 1
The matte white sachet with silver print looks luxurious and expensive, though it did mean it was pretty hard to photograph... Upon opening the sachet, I found a sheet mask which has a black and white chequered pattern on one side, which is the bamboo powder; the mask is backed with plastic which is removed before applying the mask to the face, with the patterned side against the skin. I often find that sheet masks are far too big and fit poorly, so I was pretty impressed to discover how well this fit to my face, remaining securely in place throughout the half an hour I kept it on. As suggested, I kept the extra serum in the sachet to apply to my skin at a later point; it will apparently keep in the fridge for a couple of days just fine, which is nice to know, and means the effects can be extended beyond the initial face mask itself.

After removing the mask, I massaged in the remainder of the serum which was left on my face. I found that my skin was feeling really hydrated and soft, and it did look a lot brighter. I actually used this mask before a shower as I was anticipating some mess from the bamboo charcoal, but that actually wasn't the case at all and in future I'd use this after showering so as not to remove the serum from my skin. I did re-apply from the sachet after showering, before following with my usual skincare routine. The brightening effects lasted a good couple of days after use which is nice - whilst we often use a facemask for an immediate effect, it's nice to see longer-term improvements too. It's recommended that these masks are used two-three times per week, so I'd be interested to see how my skin would look after a couple of months of regular use.

Priced at £4.90 for a single mask or £23.50 for a box of five, available here {dead link removed, apologies for any inconvenience}, these are a mid-range face mask for me, and after trying one, I'd say it's worth the price - I could see a definite improvement in my skin for a couple of days after use. The mask is suitable for all skin-types and there are a range of masks available to suit various skin complaints and requirements, including Moisturising, Soothing and Revitalising. Have you heard of or tried Timeless Truth masks? What do you look for in a face mask? Are you a fan of sheet masks?

  9. I have been using sheet masks for quite some time now and I absolutely love them. They are such awesome perk-me-up products for your skin. I have tried out Timeless Truth as yet, but this seems like a really good mask. Thank you for commenting on my blog!
