Many Americans are insanely enamored with Asian countries and practically scream, "OOOH ASIAN PEOPLE!!" like poorly educated otaku in crappy cosplay.

With any product one of the first things that folks look at is the price of the item. No one wants to shell out an arm and a leg for something that may or may not work. The cost of the Shills Black Mask was pretty reasonable considering its a facial in a tube. Only about 3 bucks with free shipping.
The outward appearance of the product was pretty basic. An all black box, and all black tube, a slip of paper inside detailing the ingredients in the product and what each of them does.
Upon squeezing out the product on my hand, I found that it looked a lot like ...tar. It was THICK and I mean thick. I've used peel off facial masks before and all of them have a viscous, sticky texture that dries to a slightly stretchy film. This stuff was in a category all its own. First off, it was BLACK. When you read the package, you expect something that's dark colored, possibly semi-transparent, but no. This stuff is as blacker than the bottom of the Mariana Trench at midnight. It was also VERY sticky, literally strong enough to stick my fingers together. How was I supposed to get it on my face?! ...Luckily I managed, with these results!

At least I won't have to get my eyebrows waxed now.
