Skin Care Product Review: Black Paint Easy 4 Steps Pore Care

 Taking care of pores is the first step in maintaining great skin.

Blackheads and Clogged Pores has always been one of my biggest frustrations and I'm always on the look out for products or going for facial sessons to fix the problem which are usually VERY COSTLY. Also the products that I have are not as effective as I was told, or probably it just didnt really suit my skin.

Due to my clogged pores, my skin is really bad and have frequent outbreaks and bad skin tones with ugly looking enlarged pores which are pretty obvious.

Thanks to SampleStore, I am able to get my hands on the BLACK PAINT Easy 4 Steps Pore Care Set to try out!!

As per mentioned, there are just 4 simple steps with 4 different products which I have provided with more details as per below.

1) Soap Cleanser
2) Best Water Toner
3) Oil Water Rose Lotion
4) Water Cream Moisturizer

I would say I am pleasantly pleased with this pore care set!!

Before - Oily Face with Make up after a whole day at work
Did the Cleansing and a short 2 minutes of Black Mask with the Soap Cleanser
After - Without any make up remover, just using the Soap Cleanser, my face is really clean after washing, applying the toner, lotion as well as moisturizer!!
(Apologize that the photos are not very clear as I took them at night thus the lighting is really bad thus cant really see the difference)

My Review

LOVE the Mild Floral Scent of Roses found in the Oil Water Rose Lotion and Lavender Scent in the Water Cream Moisturizer. Its very soothing and calming on myself as well as my skin.

LOVE that everything is so NATURAL and ORGANIC

LOVE that the Toner and Lotion are both really refreshing and light on the skin, and leaves NO sticky oily feeling

LOVE the Soap Cleanser as my face feels really clean, smooth and clear after washing, and it works really well even as a make up remover

LOVE that I could use the Soap Cleanser as a BLACK MASK on my nose to further cleanse the pores and blackheads

LOVE that it is not too dry on my skin considering I have dry yet oily skin

LOVE that my skin feels so much CLEANER after using the product and I could see that my pores are minimizing a little after using for a week!

LOVE that after ONLY the FIRST wash, my blackheads easily came right out!! Super Amazing!


Pore Care
Troubled Skin Starts from Pore There are approximately 200,000 pores on our face. When dead cells mix with oil secretion (sebum) in our skin layers, they clog our pores and prevent our skin from breathing which may lead to troubled skin. If all of them are clogged with waste and makeup, how would our face turn out to be? Enlarged pores, blackheads, name it.

On top of that, sweat and sebum are unlikely to sufficiently secrete under imbalanced skin conditions - thus causing dry, hard and darkish appearances. Besides, frequent facial wash may lead to dry skin and enlarged pores. It tends to strip moisture from our face and cause troubles. Exposure to air-conditioning is another reason that causes facial dryness and enlarged pores.

These are the reasons why BLACK PAINT was designed.

What is BLACK PAINT®? 
BLACK PAINT® is an organic skincare brand established in Kyoto 15 years ago by Miyuki Maeda. Combining ancient wisdom of beauty secrets, modern bacteriology and contemporary natural & organic lifestyle, Miyuki has successfully found the formula to solve skin problems rooting from skin pores by leveraging on the power of nature.

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 and Kishu Binchotan Charcoal, all known to have powerful beauty effects since ancient times. No longer using synthetic and artificial products to suppress our skin’s reaction to the external environment, BLACK PAINT® works instead to build the harmony between our skin and nature.

BLACK PAINT® soap has won the Grand Gold Medal of Monde Selection Award (a globally-renowned award run by International Institute for Quality Selections, Belgium that evaluates quality of each product and grant them quality label) for 6 consecutive years since 2009 under the category of Cosmetics & Toiletries.

BLACK PAINT® soaps sold more than one million units in Japan in year 2012 alone

In order to solve troubled skin, we have to:
  • Clean our pores to minimize damage done
  • Consume large amount of water
  • Keep moisturized
  • Prevent moisture loss
BLACK PAINT, which is made from natural and organic materials, serves as a total solution for keeping pores clean and skin moisturized. Our skin renews itself every 28 days, sloughing off old dead skin cells (keratin layer) and replacing them with fresh new ones.

During this period, it is important that we take pores cleaning in facial wash or hair wash seriously. The idea of this method is to moisturize our skin while we are aware about natural turnover of skin.
Skin care solution of BLACK PAINT

Step 1 – Remove clogging from pores
Step 2 – Hydrate your pores
Step 3 – Nourish your pores
Step 4 – Protect your pores

If the skin cannot get proper nourishment, it couldn’t renew itself efficiently and problems arise. To achieve a beautiful skin, use our skin care products for 28 days to allow your “normal” skin and “renewed” skin to adjust to it.

STEP 1A - Black Paint Soap Cleanser

A gentle pore cleansing hand-made face soap with Kishu Binchotan Charcoal (White Charcoal, A high-grade charcoal produced from Ubame oak made in "Kishu" area of Wakayama Prefecture) cleans pores and removes oil and dirt thoroughly but gently without stripping away skin’s essential moisture, leaving skin fresh and silky smooth.

  • Deeply cleans pores and removes keratotic plugs for smoother and fresher skin. Discovered a long 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 and this acid pushed out all the waste from within, leaving pores completely clean. That's why BLACK PAINT is made with a slightly alkaline pH level to simulate the effect of alkaline hot spring. 
  • Removes makeup in one wash without the need of makeup remover
  • Nourishes skin with 23 types of plant oils, amino acids, silk powder and vitamins in honey and brown sugar. 
  • Kishu Binchotan Charcoal effectively absorbs impurities and delivers natural minerals. 
  • Organic and natural oils improve skin immunity and minimize skin irritation. 
  • No alcohol, fragrances and artificial colorants. 
How To Use?
  1. Immerse the soap into 40 degree celcius water for a minimum of 40 seconds. The soap is ready if the surface of the soap melts into a “sesame dessert paste"
  2. Apply directly onto skin, even over makeup because the soap can double as a makeup remover. 
  3. Try to use all the 6 surfaces of “sesame dessert paste” of the soap and not just 1 side. This act will consume all the melted soap surfaces which allows the soap to dry during idling and preserves the form of the soap, prolonging its usability. 
  4. Massage face gently for around 1 minute. This allows the charcoal particles in the soap water to sip into the pores and adhere themselves to whiteheads and oil deposits for more effective cleansing. 
  5. Rinse with warm water with gentle massage. Avoid harsh motion because such action will cut off partially exposed comedones. Partially exposed comedones are best removed with the help of Black Sponge (more details in the next section) 
  6. Leave the BLACK PAINT® soap on an open dish in an airy place to dry naturally. This will help to prolong the usage of the soap. 
(**Shut your eyes tightly and rinse. Keep eyes shut until all soap is gone to prevent the soap's salts from getting into and irritating your eyes. If the soap gets in contact with the eye, it gives a sensation of irritation. There is no danger since it is a salt content. Simply rinse with water.)

STEP 1B - Black Konjac Sponge

A 100% natural facial sponge made from konjac fiber kneaded with Binchotan charcoal and various minerals that enhance absorption ability, help removing excess oil and dead skin cells in the most delicate manner.

  • Absorbs the partially exposed comedones pushed out by BLACK PAINT soap wash
  • Exfoliates the skin, removing the surplus keratin, granting it translucence and allowing a good penetration of the lotion in the next step of the regime. 
How To Use?
  1. Soak the sponge in warm water for 3 to 5 minutes, until the sponge is completely soft.
  2. Press out the excess water. DO NOT TWIST the sponge.
  3. After Face wash with BLACK PAINT® soap, massage face with the black sponge in a circular motion. The sponge will extract the partially exposed comedones.
  4. After use, rinse the sponge thoroughly. Press it between your palms to remove as much water as possible. Do not wring. Set in a airy place to dry. 

STEP 2 - Best Water Toner

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. Prevents the formation of Wrinkles due to dryness.

  • Deeply nourishes skin with 30 types of natural minerals such as Potassium and Magnesium leaving skin feeling significantly soft and supple
  • Instantly hydrates skin and helps preserve its moisture balance
  • Helps improve skin texture and minimizes pores after cleansing
  • No alcohol, fragrances and artificial colorants.
  • Low irritation. 
How To Use?

Use 3 to 5 pumps of Best Water on the skin. Gently add pressure using your palms on your face for better absorption. (Tip: It is recommended to apply Best Water along with facial paper and use as face mask twice weekly for better result)

STEP 3 - Oil Water Rose Lotion
A dual-layer emulsion that regenerates, protects, soothes, and softens the skin keeping skin soft, supple, radiant and young-looking, while a delicious rose scent uplifts the spirit.
  • Each Bottle contains around 2000 roses with their precious Damask water and oil, top grade beauty ingredient since acient times for its antimicrobial, antifungal as well as antiviral factors
  • Bottom layer of Damask Rose Water provides extra vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to skin
  • Top layer of Damask Rose Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil and others together 8 types of plant oils improves fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of aging including pigmentation.
  • Antioxidant vitamin C found in rose essential oil helps repair discoloured skin.
  • Provide anti-inflammatory properties that treat redness & wounds. The rose is also excellent for tightening skin pores
  • No emulsifiers, surfactants or preservatives
  • Damask Rose scent provides aromatherapy effects.
How To Use?

Due to the absence of emulsifier (a synthetic chemical), the Rose Oil and Rose Water are always in 2 separate layers. Shake the bottle vigourously for more than 20 times until the liquid becomes a milky solution. Then, apply 3 to 5 pumps volume of product onto skin. Repeat this step for 2 to 3 times. Apply this after cleansing and Best Water application. For best result, use it together with Best Water.)

STEP 4 - Water Cream Moisturizer

A water-based moisturizing cream that protects your skin from dryness and maintains moisture all day long. Great as a makeup base.

  • Contains Morocco’s Argan Oil which improves skin metabolism and promotes moisture retention
  • The combination of 7 different types of flower oil and polymeric silicon form a protective veil against external environment
  • Natural ingredients provides anti-oxidative effects
  • Skin's unevenness is corrected, giving a good adhesion of your foundation and a long-lasting make-up finish
  • No alcohol, fragrances and artificial colorants
  • Soothingly scented with Lavender oil
  • Act as a protective veil between your skin and heavy coloring of your make-up to prevent color depositing 
How To Use?

Take a pearl-sized amount, and spread onto face. Transforms into water droplets upon application. Wait until your face dries before applying makeup.
