Black Face Masks We Love

With reports of some black face masks leaving beauty lover’s skin red, raw and irritated we thought it was high time someone put together a list of alternative black face masks that can be safely used on the skin.
These are the black face masks we love.
There’s no denying black face masks are having a moment in beauty circles, with plenty of vloggers uploading videos of themselves peeling charcoal masks off their face (seemingly in agony) before exclaiming how smooth their skin is after.
