Thank you to for sending me their Black Mask to try! It’s a 3-in-1 peel-off charcoal black mask that cleanses, purifies and will rejuvenate the skin to reduce blackheads, acne and impurities!
I do love a good peel off mask!
I’ve tried a few different black masks and found this one to be very gentle on the skin compared to the others. A lot of peel off masks can be harsh and too drying on the skin, leaving the skin feeling very tight and dehydrated afterwards.
Sadly I couldn’t see what it pulled out as it was just too hot and the mask balled up together as I removed it. However, my pores are more oily than they are filled with blackheads as such.
My skin definitely felt a lot less oily and looked visibly brighter. It was also really soft too. It just looked like it had had a really deep cleanse. As you can see in the after pics above, my pores look really clean and my skin doesn’t look in the least bit shiny or oily at all.
For those that like these kind of masks but don’t like how painful they can be to remove sometimes – we all know how they can tug at the peach fuzz if you aren’t someone who shaves that off – I am, so it doesn’t matter to me – then this mask may be your answer.
You can see it didn’t even make my skin red at all. This mask was by far the easiest to remove and was totally pain-free for me.

I’m definitely going to use the Pure Skincare London Black Mask again.  I really enjoyed the whole experience. My skin felt great afterwards and it really helped to give my pores a thorough cleansing without being harsh on my skin.


  1. Steam or cleanse your face to make it easier to remove dirt & sebum from your pores and apply your preferred moisturiser (optional)

They will also be in stores and outlets in July 2017 but currently they are selling online and through instagram (in which a number of purchase options are available for customers).

I interviewed the company and The interview has been done via email and the questions are answered below.


    • What is your motive to create your brand and what type of gap do you feel like you are filling in the skincare market?

    Our goal is to be a global player in the skincare market and develop a full range of skincare products to help the skin of both women and men. Our motivation is to create a vegan and cruelty free skincare brand that is great for sensitive skin yet contains active ingredients to reduce blemishes, acne and blackheads at source. We want create a skincare brand that encompasses the PURE brand and work hand in hand with our customers to ensure that their skincare needs are met. We are the only skincare brand that has in-house skincare experts that work directly with customers to provide tailored advice and diagnosis. Our first product, the Black Mask, has been a great success.

    • What keeps ‘Pure Skincare London’ passionate about helping people look beautiful?

    We stay passionate because we have an array of customers that rely on our expertise skincare advice. We are constantly working and developing new products for our customer needs. Our customer’s skincare problems are our skincare problems. We will work with you and devise a unique plan to improve your skin.

    • Why did you as a company decide to make your products vegan and cruelty free?

    We are very passionate about our products being vegan and cruelty free. We do not consider that we should take advantage of animal testing or ingredients that are derived from animals and these are at the forefront of our minds as we continue to grow the PURE brand. We are already providing our products to a number of vegan and cruelty free subscription boxes and the response has been amazing.

  • How long is the Black Mask predicted to last for?

We provide customers based on customer needs. We will continue to stock any of our products including the Black Mask until our customers’ needs change. We are currently experiencing huge success and we do not plan on stopping just yet. We are just getting started with our product and brand.

  • Why is ‘Pure Skincare London’s’ Black mask better than any other Black mask on the market?

We are the only Black Mask on the market that is vegan and cruelty free. Our Black Mask has also been specifically designed for our customers with sensitive skin as a number of our customers have complained that the masks currently on the market are harsh on their skin. We developed a product that is sensitive to the skin whilst working to reduce and ultimately alleviate acne, blemishes and blackheads. Our product also contains ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Charcoal, Amino Acids, and Rosemary Leaf which our skincare experts have developed and tested over a 3-month period with amazing results on the skin.

  •  Why should The Mindfulness Mission readers choose your mask over others on the market?

As explained above, we are a unique brand with a unique outlook to improve our customers skincare regime. We are based in the heart of London and were set up with the intention of nourishing skin the way nature intended. The face masks on the market at the moment are all harsh on the skin and we have developed a face mask which is sensitive to the skin and does not cause any harm to the skin. Our product retails at only £3.79 and includes a free mask and free UK shipping. We believe this is a very competitive price and good value for our customers.


    • Why do we get blackheads even if we wash our face well and take very good care of our skin?

    The air contains a lot of impurities and pollution which sticks to our skin and over time this pollution can clog our pores causing blackheads. It is vital that a skincare regime has a very good mask which removes dead skin cells and removes blackheads. Our Black Mask will ensure that these blackheads are removed and you will be able to see the results for yourself once you remove the mask.

    • How often should the Black Mask be used?

    We recommend that our Black Mask is used once a week as part of your skincare regime.

    • How does hot water/steam open your pores and cold water close your pores?

    The heat of the water relaxes your skin and opens your pores, which helps gets rid of excess oil, which may cause blackheads and acne. Once you have cleansed and your pores are open that are active to penetrate with our Black Mask. Once our product gets to work it is important that your pores are closed with cold water so that the effects are long lasting (and pollution does not get into those open pores).

    • Why have you chosen the ingredients in the black mask and how do they benefit the skin?

    Our in-house skincare experts have scientifically tested and developed the active ingredients because of the positive effects and results on the skin in particular reducing oil in the skin, blackheads, acne and blemishes. We have dermatologically and clinically tested and trialled our product with experts for three months in order to enhance the product and its effects on skin. We are very pleased with the end result and the response has been amazing!!

    • I tried your black mask and it was amazing! What is the main ingredient in the black mask that strips all the bad oils and some blackheads/whiteheads from your skin?

    We are glad that you love our product and your views are shared by all our customers. We not only want to remove blackheads for the short term but also in the long term and our core ingredients together have been designed specifically for this purpose. It is not just one ingredient which allows us to get the results we want to achieve.

    • What type of skin type is your Black Mask best for?

    Our Black Mask has been developed for all skin types and predominately sensitive skin who have suffered from harsh face masks in the past.

    • Lastly, What type of results can people expect from the Black Mask?

    Our product reviews and results have been amazing so far but do not take our word for it. Please try the product for yourself and tell us what you think!!



In recent months many people have been trying the new black peel-off face mask which has become an Instagram and Youtube craze. I have also tried a few of the black peel-off masks and have had bad experiences with them, either irritating my skin or being quite painful. However, PURE Skincare London Ltd has developed a revolutionary skincare product for all skin types. It is a twist on the black peel-off mask but it has all natural ingredients, is cruelty-free, contains Aloe Vera, Amino Acids, and Rosemary Leaf, and was developed in London. I have found that when I use the face mask developed by PURE Skincare London Ltd it gives my skin a refreshing feeling and gets rid of my dead skin cells without the irritating I have experienced in the past.
The packaging and branding look great, sleek and simple, unlike others I have used in the past which appear extremely cheap as a brand. I also the smell of the product is pleasant which I have not found with other black peel-off masks.
The mask states that it removes blackheads, improves the appearance of skin as well as showing instant skin improvement and improves skin circulation which all leads to having healthy looking skin. I have used the face mask a couple of times and have seen small improvements in the condition of my skin, my blackheads have decreased significantly since usage and my skin feels much smoother. I plan on using the mask once a week, this is perfect for me as my skin is quite sensitive, I only recommend using it once a week as peel off masks are generally harsh on the skin at times.

The directions of the mask state that you should wash your face before applying, then you would evidently have a clean surface to apply the mask and your pores would be open for the Black Mask to have full effect on your skin. I always use a toner such as rose water and then apply moisturizer to my skin after I have peeled off the mask just to get my skin feeling normal again.

I really like the Black Mask as it did give my skin an instant improvement and it was not painful compared to other peel-off masks I have used before.
I recommend trying out the Black Mask developed by PURE Skincare London Ltd and seeing how it works for your skin, the price of the product is also pretty very good at £3.79 they also offer international shipping which is great. Or CLICK HERE
Also, Pure Skincare London is offering their first 100 customers a free rubber face mask applicator for FREE and free shipping across the United Kingdom!!! So do get yourself over to to get your Black Mask and nourish your skin the way nature intended.
