True Blue Spa Blackberry Purifying Peel Off Face Mask Review & Pictures

True Blue Spa Blackberry Purifying Peel Off Face Mask Review & PicturesThe 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!

What It Looks Like On

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!


  • Smells of delicious blackberries
  • Affordable (especially when on sale)
  • Fun black colour
  • Peels off easily
  • Leaves skin feeling clean
  • Didn’t irritate my sensitive skin
  • Removed some blackheads & whiteheads
  • Squeeze-tube packaging dispenses only the amount of product you need
  • Not tested on animals

  • Sometimes there are some spots that don’t peel off easily, so you may need to wipe those parts with a washcloth to remove

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?

    LOL The black surprised me as well. The only peel-off mask I ever used was clear! I think this would be much easier to see spots that didn’t peel off cleanly, though. Definitely looks like a lot of fun. 😀

      Hey Icequeen81!

      Be careful because this mask smells soooo goood! You may start craving pie. That’s what happened to me, anyway.

      Hey Barbara!

      Yeah, well, not by himself! Haha, I brought it over to his place and then applied it on him (after getting permission, of course)! I don’t think he’d go out, buy it, and then use it at home on himself. Haha, he’s not really the type of guy to put a lot of effort into a skincare routine.

    Huh. I’ve never been one to try peeling face masks (or any face masks) but now I’m curious. I’ve been battling acne since I was a teenager, and I have yet to find something that will actually clear up my complexion in any real way. I doubt I could find this particular mask, but after your description of the results, maybe I’ll buy one. Plenty of Dead Sea products around here!

      Hey Fedoraharp!

      Of course the efficacy of acne treatments vary from person to person, but may I suggest you check out a website? It’s There’s a whole community there to help and Dan, the guy behind it all, sells products that work well.

    I absolutely adore peel off masks!! I may just try this… But I don’t live near a BBW, so next time I drop in I’ll pick it up 🙂

      Hey Ry!

      Which are your favourite peel-off masks? This is the first one I’ve tried, so I’m open to affordable suggestions.

    The only peel off mask I tried was clear and it was this cucumber one from Wal – Mart ( Freeman Beauty I think). Peel off masks are so fun but so sticky to apply.

      Hey Maddy!

      Oh yes, I remember trying that cucumber one back when I was in high school! It’s cool that it’s still around!

      This peel-off mask goes on much thicker than the cucumber one did back then. But when it dries, it becomes thin like seaweed, which is both interesting and nasty (haha) to peel off your face.

  5. Kinsey

    I love this mask! My skin feels super soft after I peel it off. While I’m wearing it, though, my dogs freak out and get all over me trying to smell my face. I agree the blackberry scent is delish (and I guess they do too)!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Kinsey!

      Hahahaha! That’s so funny! Are you sure your dog’s freaking out? Maybe somebody wants you to SHARE the peel-off mask! Haha, now I’m picturing a dog with a peel-off mask, cucumbers over its eyes, and rollers in its fur! 😛

  6. Annabella

    Well it’s definitely gone now, not even on the website. I’m still going to do a review of it on my blog because I think it’s fab but I could curse B&BW for discontinuing another great product from the TBS range! *shakes fist*

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Annabella!

      Aww, that’s so sad. I kept hesitating stocking up on it. Aww! It was such a delicious-smelling mask. I still have half of this tube left – been using it sparingly.

      Maybe they’re going to bring it back under a different name. Bath & Body Works tends to do that with discontinued fragrances. Or maybe it’ll come back for the Semi-Annual Sale. Who knows?
