Magnetic face masks are the latest novelty product to launch in the extremely innovative mask market, so I was eager to get my hands on one and give it a go, to find out if it’s actually any good, or just very novel! The Amour Noir Magnetic Face Mask is a really interesting product that I liked a lot more than I expected to, since it provides a number of benefits in a clay-type mask format.
The Amour Noir Magnetic Face Mask comes prettily presented in box with the mask itself, a spatula applicator and the magnet, as well as instructions printed on to the box. The spatula isn’t great as it makes things a bit difficult when it comes to spreading the product around, but the magnet it easy to use and the mask is surprisingly creamy, so you could easily apply it without the spatula.
You apply the Amour Noir Magnetic Face Mask then let it sit for around 10 minutes. Even though it contains Dead Sea minerals, it doesn’t dry and instead stays creamy, so you get the benefits of a gentle deep cleanse without the tightness. Once you’ve left the mask on for the designated time (you could definitely go longer) you then put a tissue over the magnet and slowly move the magnet over your face, without actually touching it. This is the fun and novel bit that feels very odd and kind of like mild static; it’s great fun watching the mask jump off your face and on to the tissue! I used around 6 pieces of tissue to get everything off.
Once the black part of the mask is gone, what’s left is a fairly unctuous oil that you can massage into your skin and leave to continue to hydrate. It’s a very rich residue that would be amazing overnight on very dry and/or mature skin; I left it on for a couple of hours before washing it off. I like the fact that you get a multitude of benefits from using this mask: it gives a light cleanse and leaves skin feeling very hydrated, plus it’s fun to use and it’s well presented too. It’s not a holy grail product for me, but it’s definitely one I’ll use again, and if you’ve been thinking of trying a magnetic mask then this one is a lovely place to start, providing an experience that is gentle and fun and surprisingly lacking in mess!
