Review: Black Paint 5 Step Skincare System*

Hey Guys,

As most of you know, Asian Skincare has become huge in the US beauty industry and all over the world. Today I'm going to share a new 5 Step Skincare System that is making its way into the US Market from Japan. It is called Black Paint and is unlike anything I've ever tried before. Keep reading to learn about this skincare system and to hear my thoughts after testing it out for the past month.

Black Paint 5 Step Skincare System

Here is what is said about Black Paint on the company website:

"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.
BLACK PAINT® soap has won the Grand Gold Medal of Monde Selection Award Winner (a globally-renowned award run by International Institute for Quality Selections, Belgium that evaluate quality of each product and grant them quality label) for 5 consecutive years since 2009 under the category of Cosmetics & Toiletries in Japan.
The Concept of Black Paint
 Miyuki Maeda searched the world over for the natural materials that would best support the skin's self-healing and protection processes.
Natural Ingredients
Today, we use more than 100 kinds of plant-derived oils, essential minerals and other natural ingredients such as silk, honey and brown sugar, together with various plant oils and essential oils from all over the world. Our products' fragrance comes from steam-distilled essential oils, not synthetic perfumes. The usage of plant oils and organic ingredients has been approved by organic certification bodies in Germany and France.
Pore Care
An average adult has around 200,000 pores on his or her face. Maintaining clean, healthy skin pores is important for maintaining healthy (and healthy looking) skin. Dirt and oil on pores may cause those pores get clogged and encourage the growth of bacteria which would causes inflammation and irritation. No matter how strong your cleanser/ facial wash is, it is almost impossible to extract all the waste inside the skin's pores. But there is a better way discovered along ago by women who visited hot springs. When the alkaline water of the hot springs touched their skin (which is acidic) it triggered the skin to restore its normal balance by releasing more acid. This additional acid pushed out all the waste from within, leaving pores completely clean. That's why BLACK PAINT has a slightly alkaline pH level. Most face cleansers use a solvent that removes makeup by melting its oils. Unfortunately, they also remove the skin’s natural oils and washes away the good with the bad. BLACK PAINT soap removes only makeup, with a gentle foaming film of vegetable oil that lets it slip easily off the skin's surface.
Suppors Skin Microbiota
Human Microbiota is the microscopic organisms living in human body. The human skin is usually slightly acid, mostly due to the effect of sebum secretion by skin glands which contained lactic acid. Like our intestine, lactic acid bacteria act as a barrier to prevent microbes (other bacteria) from entering our body.
Vital to skin health, these bacteria digest skin oil, dead cells and minerals from perspiration, turning them into a natural moisturizing cream that acts as a barrier between the inner skin and the outer environment. With essential moisture locked in and dirt out, skin stays soft, fresh and radiant. Using only natural ingredients without any preservatives, BLACK PAINT helps maintain the functionality of the bacteria in our skin which balances the skin’s immune system.
No Syntehetic Preservatives
The BLACK PAINT skincare series is made solely of natural ingredients; does not use any synthetic preservatives, disinfectants, fragrances, colorings, anti-oxidants, or ultraviolet absorbers.
We refuse to use them because many are already proven to cause cancer and other illnesses as well as damage the eco-system.
What’s more, they can kill the beneficial bacteria that help skin maintain its natural beauty. Through BLACK PAINT soap, we hope to live in a globally safe environment despite our hectic lifestyle.
Gently Manufactured
We have worked long and hard to develop manufacturing processes that don't compromise the integrity of our products. For example, BLACK PAINT soap is cold pressed -- almost unheard-of these days. Cold processing allows glycerin, a plant-derived emollient, to remain in the soap instead of being boiled away. Cleansing naturally leaves skin soft, radiant and healthy. We also do not use emulsifiers to keep the oil and water elements of a formula mixed together. We believe you would rather shake the bottle before each use than have synthetic chemicals touch your skin."

Black Paint Cleanser $29.99

Here is what is said about this product on the company wesbite:
"A gentle pore cleansing hand-made face soap with Kishu Bichotan Charcoal (White Charcoal) cleans pores and removes oil and dirt thoroughly but gently without stripping away skin’s essential moisture, leaving skin fresh and silky smooth." 

First you need to get the surface layers of the soap to melt so that you can apply it to your face. You fill up a bowl or you sink with hot water and drop this soap into it. Let it sit for about 40 seconds. Next, you apply the soap to your face using all sides of the soap. You massage the soap into your face for 5 minutes to let the charcoal work its magic and pull dirt, oil, and whiteheads from your pores.

I think this is a pretty cool skincare product. It does get quite messy once the soap is wet. The soap is pretty easy to apply to your face and dries quickly. It washes off easily as well. This bar of cleanser lasts quite a while.

Black Konjac Sponge $9.99

Here is what is said about this product on the company website:
"A 100% natural facial sponge made from vegetable fiber, Kishu Binchotan charcoal (White charcoal) and various minerals that enhance absorptive ability, helps removing excess oil and dead skin cells in the most delicate manner." http://www.blackpaint.com/products/black-sponge.html/

You need to soften up this sponge but letting it sit in warm water for 3 to 5 minutes. Once it is softened you gently squeeze of excess water. After using the Black Paint Soap and cleaning you face, you then massage your face with this sponge in circular motions. This helps remove any partially exposed blackheads, whiteheads, and dirt.

I really liked using this sponge. It feels really nice massaging your face. I think this sponge would even be good to use when applying face cleansers and other cleansing washes.

Here is what is said about this product on the company website:
"A pore-minimizing toner that contains 30 types of minerals that deeply penetrates the skin (epidermis) to nourish and help restore skin's natural barrier to prevent moisture loss."

After using the Black Paint soap and the Black Konjac Sponge you squirt a few pumps of this toner into your palm and pat on to your face. You apply this toner to your face until it feels hydrated. I really like this toner. It makes my face feel nice and hydrated.

Rose Oil Water Lotion $29.99

Here is what is said about this product on the company website:
"A dual-layer emulsion that regenerates, protects, soothes, and soften the skin keeping skin soft, supple, radiant and young-looking, while a delicious rose scent uplifts the spirit." 

After the Best Water Toner you follow with the Rose Oil Water Lotion. You shake the bottle to mix the water and oil mixture. You use 2-3 pumps of this product and apply to your face 2 to 3 times. I really like how this feels on my skin. Your face soaks up the product fairly quickly. It doesn't make your skin feel oily at all. This product has a mild rose scent that doesn't last after it absorbs into your skin.

Water Cream Moisturizer $49.99

Here is what is said about this product on the company website:
"A water-based moisturizing cream that diminishes visible pores, protects your skin from dryness and maintains moisture all day long. By filling the skin with moisture, it builds resistance from outdoor environments as well as creates a smoother and more refined skin texture."

After using the Rose Oil Water Lotion you finish with this Water Cream moisturizer. I love how light this moisturizer is. It soaks up into my skin immediately and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It has a slight rose/floral scent which goes away after a few seconds.

Here is a chart that shows the Black Pain 5 Step Skincare System and how to use each.

Overall, I really liked trying out this system. Its very unique and not like anything I have ever tried before. I only used it at night because I don't have enough time in the morning to do this routine. My skin felt super clean, hydrated, and moisturized after using this skincare system. I think it is great for someone that wants to pamper themselves and really likes to take the time with this skincare routine.
