Speed Review: DHC Mineral Mask

Regular readers will know that DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is one of my all time favourite, can't live without, holy grail skincare products so it will come as little surprise that when the Japanese brand introduces a new product, I sit up & take notice. Today's review is of the recently launched Mineral Mask.

DHC Mineral Mask review

DHC Mineral Mask

Described as a pore purifying mask, DHC Mineral Mask contains naturally clarifying kaolin and bentonite clays, along with antioxidant rich soy, nourishing chlorella, soothing aloe and brightening mulberry. It is designed to draw out impurities, promote natural skin cell turnover to improve smoothness and leave skin feeling soft, refreshed and looking more radiant. So, did it deliver?

DHC Mineral Mask is presented in an outer box which reflects the design of the black and gold tube inside. Whilst it looks fairly luxurious thanks to the colour scheme, I wasn't wowed by the packaging and it would be unlikely to appeal to me if I saw it on a shop shelf. That said, DHC isn't known for their packaging and it's what's inside that counts.

The directions were clear and easy to follow and I appreciated the functionality of the tube packaging, although I'd have preferred a flip top lid instead of the screw top one.

The mask has a very smooth, thick formula which I found easy to smooth onto skin. It's not messy and there are no exfoliating particles. A little goes a long way so the 100ml tube will last a long time. I didn't notice any discernable scent which was a little disappointing- I'd have found the experience more pampering if there was an indulgent fragrance.

During use, the mask felt cool and soothing on my skin. Its smooth, green appearance made me feel as though I resembled Jim Carrey's character from The Mask! It set onto skin but didn't feel uncomfortable. I appreciated the convenience afforded by the mask getting to work in just 10 minutes, therefore requiring little commitment. It removed effortlessly which again, I appreciated.

DHC Mineral Mask isn't a bad mask. It was relatively pleasant to use but I didn't find it to be particularly results driven. I didn't see any noticeable results following use and as such, I'm not convinced that the rather high £29 price tag is justified and I'd be unlikely to repurchase
