Hello BHB girls! Today I will review Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask. The simple and easy-to-go taste of Vanilla (well, thats one flavor which goes with anything you add to garnish it be it-choco sticks, choco chips, cherries, brownies and crunchy wafers), the inimitable combo of nuts and fruits in Tooti-Fruity, the whacky but wonderful zing of Black-current, and the heavenly taste of chocolate which makes your taste buds go into a tizzy. Ice creams find takers in all 🙂 Be it a four year old toddler who was screaming his/her lungs out a minute before being handed a scoop of his/her favorite ice cream, a bunch of school/college kids who out of being financially constrained hop over to a nearby ice cream vendor to savor a scoop of their favorite ice cream over some light banter, or even a couple (and some iconoclasts like me 😛 ) slurp one during monsoons 🙂 The name of Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Peel Off Mask at first, conjured he image of vanilla ice cream before my eyes. After five minutes of drooling over it psychedelically, I Googled the benefits of Black Vanilla to see as to how does it nurture our skin.
I found that Vanilla is an underrated beauty ingredient. Why? Because the high concentration of anti-oxidants present in vanilla helps to prevent as well as oppose the action of free radicals, which cause great damage to the skin. This way it reduces the occurrence of wrinkles, fine lines on the skin, especially around the eyes and the mouth, and age spots. Vanilla also has pleasant smell, which is made use of in cosmetic industry. It is rich in Vitamin B complex, which includes niacin, Vitamin B6, thiamin and pantothenic acid. This is why I zeroed in on Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask. Scroll down and read Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask Review to see how it fared 🙂

What Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask claims
My experience with Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask
Packed in a plastic packet in a cardboard container, Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask packaging entails room for improvement. Why? The product asserts that it is meant for a single use but I have used it thrice and not like a cheapskate. It lasts well for three uses (in some cases, it may last to up to four also but thats how efficiently you do so without compromising on its effectiveness). At least it will last for two uses without any iota of doubt so that means that one has to either transfer the contents into a clean container or let it in the plastic pack itself. If the first is done, then theres the hassle of transferring it. If the second is done, then there is a chance of contamination or spillage.
So, the packaging calls for improvement. I am not asking for a high-end container or something penny-pinching, but the provision of a zipper pouch would offset this problem 🙂
The powder is fine and grey. Once mixed with water and whipped properly, it forms a smooth paste and then, you have to apply it at as swiftly as possible because its consistency turns from semi-liquid to solid within seconds.
On applying, you get a cooling sensation which would be a delight during scorching summers 😉 There is neither any burning sensation nor the urge to scratch (due to irritation) unless you have a highly sensitive skin type. To allay this fear, do a patch test on your wrist by using less than half a teaspoon of the powder mixed with water).
It dries within 15-20 minutes and here comes the part which makes you feel like an expert 😛 It is a cakewalk to remove it. Neither does it stick to your skin (unless you have left it for way too long) nor does it itch/hurt your face the way it does when you get your facial skin a treatment of Katori wax.
You are left with clear, squeaky clean, radiant, softened and refreshed skin. Ones baby hair is also removed. Don’t expect it to extract your hardened facial hair. It won’t work if you have a lot of facial hair. It didn’t dry out my dry skin but since everyone’s skin type varies, this point is subjective so, better keep your reliable body butters/lotions/moisturisers handy if you feel that your skin is overly dry 🙂 I feel it is apt for all skin types. Extremely dry skin should be cautious.
On the whole, Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask gives you a parlor-like treatment within the confines of your home. Go for it 🙂
Good about Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask
- Brightens skin tone
- Softens skin
- Removes baby hair
- Imparts a clean and refreshed look
- One packet will last at least two uses. It may last more also but dont trade-off longevity for effectiveness. Even if it lasts three uses, focus on using it in a way which maximises its efficacy and not its life.
Bad about Rishi Ratna Black Vanilla Deep Cleansing Peel Off Mask
- Available only online at present
- COD (Cash on delivery) feature is unavailable at present.
- Packaging calls for improvement. A very elaborate design isnt called for. A mere zipper pouch would be apt.
