Black Paint review

Recently I was given a range of skincare products to review from BLACK PAINT®.
A little background of my previous skincare routine, I was using French skincare products that I had for a few months now and my skin is already in a good condition with that.
For Black Paint skincare range, it is recommended that you stick to it for a month for effective results.

BLACK PAINT®, an organic skincare brand established in Kyoto 15 years ago by Myyuki Co.Ltd. Since ancient times, plant oil treatments have been taught to be a secret to beautiful skin. Based on this concept, BLACK PAINT® skincare products are made from natural, organic materials which are blended from more than 100 types of plant oils, more than 50 types of essential oils, Kishu Bichotan Charcoal that suitable for various skin and body parts. BLACK PAINT® soaps sold more than one million units in Japan in year 2012 alone.

The range that they gave to me contained a Black Paint Soap bar, Black Paint Konjac sponge(not shown here), Black Paint Best water, Oil water and their Water Cream(not shown here).

Black Paint soap comes in a bar. To ensure that I'll get the most out of bar soaps, I usually like to cut my soap into smaller pieces before using it. So I cut off a small rectangular slice from the bar to use.

After filling up a bowl with warm water, I gently dip my soap into the water before applying it onto my face.
A gentle pore cleansing hand-made face soap with Kishu Bichotan Charcoal (White Charcoal) clean pores and removes oil and dirt thoroughly but gently without stripping away skin’s essential moisture, leaving skin fresh and silky smooth.
You can apply me to damp face or dry face with makeup on since it also doubles up as a makeup remover! However, for me I find that it's easier to rinse off my makeup with a remover first before washing my face with the soap to ensure all the makeup is removed.

It looks like I'm spreading chinese calligraphy black paint onto my skin!

Before spreading the soap on my face, I left the sponge into the warm water to soak for a while to soften it. Once I've painted my face black with the soap, I rinse my face thoroughly. Afterwards, I'll squeeze out the excess water from the sponge before using it to scrub my face clean!
This helps to remove all the excess dirt that's on my face and aids in some exfoliation too.

After cleansing, it is recommended to apply their toner- Best Water and lotion- Oil Water.
I use two pumps each for my face and pat them on instead of using a cotton pad! I find that the product would be better absorbed into my skin that way.

For Oil Water it has two phase so you got to shake it about 20 times before using it.

I love the smell of this product as it is rose scented!
Gently pat the product onto your face and take a deep breathe. I love how my skin feels moisturized afterwards and not oily at all.

For storage of my soap and bowl, I place them together and left it on the sink table!

Lastly, Black Paint Lavender Water cream.
It looks like a cream but feels like water during application. However, it is filled with moisturising ingredients so even though it feels like water, it kept my skin hydrated throughout the night!

Overall, I really love the range of products from Black Paint.
I feel that skincare is something that you should spend on and if you're looking for an organic skincare range I would highly recommend Black Paint!
