Quenching Mineral Mask
This face mask contains Vitamin B3, an ingredient known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, and is supposed to instantly hydrate dry and sensitive skin. The consistency is a thick and sticky gel, without being hard to rinse off.
I usually apply a thick layer all over my face, leave it on for at least 5 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water. If your skin is super dry, you can remove the excess with a cotton pad and massage any remaining product into skin. I prefer to rinse it off though, it's too sticky for me.
This mask hydrate my oily (but dehydrated!) skin without clogging pores. And I love the cooling sensation when I rinse it off!
Pore Purifying Clay Mask
The Pore Purifying Clay Mask contains 2 mineral clays (Kaolin and Bentonite) to help eliminate impurities and excess sebum. It has a nice consistency, super smooth and creamy.
I apply a thin layer on clean skin and let it dry for 3-5 minutes, then rinse it off with water. It doesn't give me that tight feeling afterward, my skin feel very clean and soft. It also tighten pores but the effect is only temporary.
While I enjoy this mask, I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin's appearance after 3 weeks of use.
Double Glow Peel Mask
Last but not least, the Double Glow Peel Mask is specifically formulated to brighten dull skin through a double-peel action. The fruit acids (AHA) remove dead cells, while volcanic rocks gently exfoliate the skin.
I leave it on for about 5 minutes (anything longer and it's too dry to massage it), then massage it gently with my finger tips and rinse it off with water. This mask doesn't sting or burn, although my skin isn't very sensitive either.
It really help in lightening hyper pigmentation and acne scars, my skin tone is brighter and more even! My skin feel softer and look healthier as well!
I love it and would definitely repurchase (I got it for free, but you know what I mean!).
The Vichy Mineral Face Masks retail for $34 CAD for 75ml.
