Review: Minus 417 Mineral Peel Mask

As soon as I heard of Cult Beauty, this guy stood out to me. Something about minerals and peel had me placing it in my basket... before hitting 'x' and leaving the page. However, my birthday happened, and something in me thought, right, it's now or never. So I bought it, and boy am I glad I did.

The consistency of this really shocked me, why I'm not too sure, but it did. It's basically a gel (or for the technically challenged, gloop) that you place all over your face. I'm guessing you get a spatula for hygiene reasons, but I do find it to be a bit fiddly. 

I like to slop it all on with the spatula, then use my fingers to make sure it's evenly spread. You need to ensure that there are no gaps so that it peels properly. It does feel weird the first few times, but you get used to it.

It goes on quite clear, which is another reason I find fingers are needed to ensure that it's all meeting each other. It's not the scariest mask and didn't leave my parents in hysterics, just asking why it's so shiny. You then leave it for 15-20 mins, or until it feels dry (it doesn't go tight like a clay mask, you can still talk.)

'scuse the weird face. Once dry, you just peel it off. I'm not going to lie, it doesn't all peel off in one fail swoop. It takes a bit of effort, and I like to use a hot cloth to get rid of the excess; but it is fun peeling away.

This is what the remains look like.

After this mask my skin felt so hydrated. For lack of a better term 'like seriously.' I just kept touching my face (naughty, I know) but I was amazed. I wasn't sure what kind of mask this was, I thought it was a purifying mask, and maybe it is as my skin does look clearer after use, but the hydration qualities is what I found most prominent.

I really rate this product, and if you have some cash spare, I definitely think you should check this out.

What do you think?

  1. This mask sounds really nice. It's good that it is hydrating as so many peel off masks aren't. I love that 'can't-stop-touching-my-face' effect that a good mask gives.
