Ingredients Analysis of Wow Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask

Wow Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask

Without the analysis of the ingredients, any review is incomplete. At least, this is what Cosmetics Arena believes. WOW is indeed one of the most trusted brands when it comes to innovative formula. But, to what extent the truth prevails, let’s check the analysis to find out the truth.

Purified water

A solvent and base of any liquid-based product.

Polyvinyl Alcohol

A king ingredient of any peelable masks. It has the ability to form a thin layer on top of the skin so that these masks can be easily removed.

Xanthan Gum

It is used as a thickening agent to create the gel-like texture.

Glycerin (Vegetable derived)

This is one of the best naturally found humectant that helps to retain moisture into the skin. And, skin stays hydrated always.


Trehalose has anti-oxidizing properties. It helps to retain moisture so that skin does not become dry.

Activated bamboo charcoal

This is the heart of this peel-off mask. Activated charcoal helps to remove pollutants, toxins, micro dirt particles, etc. And makes skin rejuvenated.


It is a skin protectant with anti-inflammatory properties. Panthenol helps to improve the skin profile by keeping the skin hydrated.

Aloe vera extract

All you know, how effective! The only medicine for every skin problem. It moisturizes skin, fades the dark spots, scars and so on.

Sodium Hyaluronate

This is a component of Hyaluronic Acid. And, we all know that it is one of the best anti-ageing elements ever.

Sodium Benzoate

It is one of the most widely used preservatives. Sodium benzoate has also been used to enhance the scent of a cosmetic.

Potassium Sorbate

Potassium Sorbate is also another safe preservative that is used in this activated charcoal peel-off mask.


This component is used as a preservative or stabilizer.

Disodium EDTA

According to EWG, this component is quite safe to use in cosmetics. Disodium EDTA is a chelating agent which decreases the reactivity of the metals if any present in a formula.


It is another component that I generally do not prefer in a cosmetic. The nature of the fragrance is not mentioned here. So, that indicates a piece of vague information.

Iron Oxide Black C.I. 77499

Basically, it is a cosmetic colourant that is widely used in foundations, powders, and other makeup products.

Overall, most of these components are harmless and safe. But, I did not like the presence of fragrance and also the colourant. Colourant and fragrance indeed make a cosmetic attractive. But, these additives are absolutely unnecessary. So, I would give the ingredients of this peel-off mask not more than 4.8 out of 5.

Overview: Packaging, Texture and Fragrance

Wow Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask Packaging

WOW Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask comes in beautiful packaging. The label is a combination of bright purple and black colour. The entire tube is made of sturdy plastic. The flip-flop cap helps to take out the mask properly without any wastage. It is indeed a travel-friendly peel-off mask. Every detail is mentioned on the label regarding the mask.

The texture of WOW Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask is kind of black. It is quite a thick liquid which is neither too runny nor completely gel-based mask.

The mild fragrance is quite pleasant; it would not bother people with even most sensitive nose.

How Can You Use Wow Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask?

  • Well! The following method of application is what I follow usually. But for better results, you can follow the application trick written on the label.
  • First, I clean my face with a chemical-free face wash. You can use any face wash you want.
  • After then, I wet my face with a hot damp towel. It helps to open the pores.
  • Once all are done, I apply a thin and even layer of this peel-off mask all over my face and neck. Make sure you apply it carefully especially around eyes and lips.
  • After about 15 minutes, I slowly peel off the mask when it doesn’t feel sticky. Always pull it from down to the upward direction.
  • If you find the peeling painful, then use lukewarm water to loosen the peel.
  • And, at last seal the open pores with the splash of cold water.

My Experience with WOW Activated Charcoal Peel Off Mask

Wow Skin Science Activated Charcoal Peel Off Face Mask Texture

So, when the first time I applied this face mask, my round eyes became more round! My skin instantly became brighter and clearer. The charcoal mask removed all the blackheads and dead cells. In fact, it also peeled off the tiny facial hairs.

The result was pretty clearly visible! I have used charcoal peel-off masks earlier also but none made me satisfied. This one totally worked for my skin.

I felt my skin slightly dry the dryness was nothing serious. It is indeed one of the best chemical-free peel-off masks that deliver what they claim. I have never faced any skin irritation with its application.

Of course! It is suitable for both men and women. My brother has used it and literally fell in love with it. He has great skin and generally does not apply any kind of face mask. But this activated charcoal peel-off face mask suited him well and made his skin brighter. Thus, I think it can be used easily on men’s skin also.
