The True Blue Spa Blackberry Purifying Peel Off Face Mask from Bath & Body Works is the very first peel-off mask that I’ve ever tried.
I’ve had this since last year, and I hauled it when I was placing a huge online order of candles. (Haha, I haven’t bought anything from Bath & Body Works since because I’m trying to use up the huge collection I’ve amassed!)
Since it was on sale, I added this blackberry peel-off mask to my cart.
I’ve used it a few times since purchasing it, and, hehe, I’ve also used it on the guy I’m dating. We both really loved it!

You don’t usually see me post photos of my face on Swatch And Learn, hehe, but I just had to show you this face shot. So dramatic! Most of the masks I’ve tried are white or beige. This one’s BAMMMMM like tar! Yeah, so don’t answer the door when you have this mask on. You might frighten someone!

True Blue Spa Blackberry Purifying Peel Off Face Mask The Review
I never knew just how much I liked the smell of blackberries until I tried this True Blue Spa Blackberry mask! It smells so yummy, I wanted to eat it!
It’s fresh and juicy, and it’s more on the sweet side than the tart side, so I was drooling! Totally didn’t expect to be blown away by the scent of a peel-off mask!
It was easy to apply. It’s pretty thick – much thicker than a lotion. It’s almost like a thickened gel, so you have to work a bit to apply it evenly and to spread it over your skin.
Squeezing it out of the tube, it comes out slowly and oozes. It’s so thick that when you go to wash your hands, it actually clings to your skin. You need to rub your hands well to remove it, and it has an interesting slime-y feeling when you wash with water.
The colour surprised me. I didn’t realize it was going to be black! And I had a good time laughing when I looked at myself in the mirror with this on. I can just imagine someone knocking on my door when I have this on. The poor person would have a heart attack if I answered like this!
For me, a black peel-off mask is a novelty, and I have fun wearing something so dramatic. It almost makes me feel like I’m slathering on war paint and going out to battle.
And when I used this on the guy I’ve been dating, at first, I applied it like the black marks under football-players’ eyes. Hehe! This is such a fun mask to play with! And when I showed him his reflection in the mirror, his first reaction was, “Oh wow!”
I really like the squeeze-tube packaging because it helps to easily dispense just the right amount of product that’s needed without wasting any. Also, since it’s a tall, thin tube, it takes up less space in my already-cluttered bathroom.
Removing this blackberry peel-off mask was the fun part!
After applying the mask, you need to wait until it’s completely dry. (That took roughly 10-15 minutes for me.) Then, you start peeling it off from the outer edge to the inside.
When you do this, it doesn’t rip your skin, which I was worried about. (My skin is sensitive, so it gets irritated easily.) This mask didn’t irritate my skin.
You can feel a little tension on your skin as it pulls out blackheads, whiteheads, and impurities, but it’s not as abrasive as those Biore nose strips.
When you pull off the mask, it’s so freaky – it looks almost like seaweed!
I was able to peel off the majority of the mask in two pieces, and then if you have anything remaining, you can just get a washcloth and gently wipe it away.
After removal, my skin felt soft, clean, and not dry or irritated.
The tube says that this product wasn’t tested on animals. However, it was tested on other ‘animals’ – me and my guy. Hehe!
Final Verdict: 10/10
If you’ve never tried a peel-off mask before or one that was black, you must try this! It’s so much fun, and I think if you have sleepovers, bring this along and share it with your friends. It’s hilarious to see each other with ‘war paint’.
What facial mask have you tried? Do you get facials at the spa or do your own at home? Have you tried any other True Blue Spa products from Bath & Body Works?
