Keep on powering there guys because there's literally TWO more days left till the end of the week (yahoo!) BRING ON THE WEEKENDS! x
As Bioré would say: "Clean the pore, clear the problem." 
In this review, I'll be talking about my experiences I had using Biore's Self-heating One Minute Mask. This product is perfect for those wanting to wind down after a day out and you're looking to thoroughly cleanse deep into your pores. What makes this product interesting is that it contains natural charcoal! 



What you'll realise about Bioré's Self heating one minute mask is that it has a new product look which looks more simple, attractive and very identifiable on the supermarket and chemist shelves. The mask itself contains natural charcoal and in each box comes with four single use packettes which are about 7.0g each in weight. So you really get enough for a full coverage of your face. 

Their Self-heating One Minute mask works in a thermal method where once you apply it onto your face, the product will look to warm up so it can really open up the pores on your face. I found that by using the mask, my pores felt and looked more cleaner than usual. I love having cleared pores and this product did a wonderful job in assisting me with that. What the mask does is that it draws and dissolves dirt and oil more effectively than a normal cleanser. I can just tell by looking closely at my mirror that my pores are definitely squeaky clean. Then once you rinse this off, you'll get a cool sensation on your face. (So when you blow on your face, it just feels amazing!) 

I love to experiment with masks because I feel that it gives my face a deeper cleanse and especially when this mask contains charcoal ingredients. Charcoal itself is similar to magnet. So when you imagine a magnet being placed closed to the pores, it'll draw up the dirt, impurities and oil out of the pores. I have huge pores on my nose and this was especially useful for clearing out the impurities in that particular skin area. Natural charcoal is known for its ability to draw out impurities and look to trap them. I am very happy with the results from using this mask. Charcoal looks to suck up dirt deep down. The famous Charcoal routine from Bioré's product skin range Bioré's actually launched in 2014. 

HOW I WOULD APPLY THE MASK: I would wet my face first before applying the mask on, ensuring my face is really clean. (So go ahead and cleanse your face first with a good scrub before applying the mask) The mask is only activated by water - so be sure to use plenty of water when applying on the mask. Then I look to massage the product onto my face for about one minute. You will notice that this mask doesn't harden up or become dry. It's only designed to be on your face for about one minute, so after the time is over, look to rinse your face with lukewarm water. The recommended usage of the mask is about two to three times a week. For myself, I would use the mask twice a week, one at the beginning of the week and the other at the end of the week. 

The results of using the face mask made my pores seem visibly reduced in size. This would be due to how clean my pores would be hence the mask does an amazing job in cleaning out the pores on my nose and on the sides of my face. I have noticed my pores looking smaller so I am definitely happy and impressed with Bioré's skin care range. Usually, when my pores are clogged I find that they tend to stand out more. So what I learned from this all is to ensure your pores are cleaned daily! The heat mask isn't too hot for my skin which is great because once it's on my face, my skin felt very comfortable with it on. What I found about using the face mask is that the consistency reminded me of honey. A major plus for me is that it was so easy and convenient to apply this onto my face and then look to remove it. I experienced no issues from using the product and had no redness at all. 

The convenient small sachets are definitely useful in a sense they're perfect for travelling purposes as well. They are so hygienic with every single use and you can just easily throw one sachet out after each use. The sachets are definitely easy to open up and I had no issues with trying to rip it open. You can tell the product of the mask smells very 'charcoal' like but this in a way showing us that they use natural based products which are definitely effective and useful for skin. It is also a fresh type of product that I would use on a weekly basis because clearing out my pores is a must! At such an affordable price of RRP $7.99 for the convenient packaged sachets, I am going to have pop into my nearest Priceline to stock up on these! 

Overall, these face masks were so effective and I would give a 5/5 stars for the product.
