Initially, the purifying black charcoal mask peel off was meant for facial usage only but people started using them all over their body. This effectively took off all the body hair, any ingrown hair as well as dead skin cells and dirt. Over the body, it feels equally painful especially on the areas where hair growth is intense like on the legs.
Due to such painful experiences, some of the companies started selling a diluted and less thick version of the purifying black charcoal mask peel off. This also gained a lot of popularity and a greater amount of people started buying them as well.

For dry skin-
The black charcoal peel-off mask is an amazing thing for dry skin especially if it is not acne-prone. The black charcoal peel-off mask effectively will take off the dry and dead skin leaving smooth and baby soft textured skin for dry skin type people.
For oily skin-
This is equally an effective thing for oily skin people since it helps in cleaning out the pores completely and also takes off all the whiteheads which a normal scrub will never be able to do.
For Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin-
This type of skin people should always stay away from the black charcoal peel-off mask no matter if it is diluted or concentrated. The ingredients can irritate the sensitive skin and acne-prone skin can even bleed by using the black charcoal peel-off mask. If sensitive skin people feel like trying the black charcoal peel-off mask out then they should go for the diluted one and will only apply after doing a patch test on their jawline. This will give them a fair idea of how their skin will react if the mask is applied to their skin.
A patch test is a must for everyone even if they are not falling under-sensitive skin types because we never know which ingredient in the product can cause allergic reactions to us.
