I have several skincare items that I will be reviewing over the next week or so that arrived in a surprise care package (skincare, that is) from the lovely Stashy from Stash Matters! If you aren’t following her yet, change that immediately, she is a makeup and skincare EXPERT. I’ve tried several things upon her recommendation, and have yet to be disappointed!
Today I’m reviewing the DHE Mask from Consonant Skincare. Consonant Skincare is a Canadian brand, based in Toronto, Ontario. Here’s a little bit of an introduction to the brand, taken from their company philosophy page:
Consonant Skincare is Canada’s leading line of premium skin care that is as luxurious as the most expensive fashion label brand, as effective as the best-known cosmeceutical brand, and as healthy as the leading natural brand. Our regimen is edited and effortless. We believe you should not have to make any sacrifices to achieve your best skin. All of our products are 100% natural, and formulated with the highest possible concentration of organic botanical ingredients. But they are still skin care, not salad dressing: They improve the look of your skin with results you will notice immediately. When you use our natural regimen, healthy and radiant skin will be revealed without the use of synthetic ingredients. No parabens, no sulfates, no petroleum ingredients, and certainly no phthalates.
The DHE Mask is the only facial mask that they currently offer. Here’s what it says on the website:
The DHE mask is a uniquely multitasking, 100% natural mask that has been formulated to Detoxify, Hydrate and Exfoliate. Mineral-rich Manicouagan Clay, extracted from the site of a 215 million year old asteroid crash in Quebec, detoxifies and clarifies skin with the help of Willow Bark and Tea Tree Extracts. Potent Cassia Angustifolia, Grape Seed and Olive Oils nourish and deliver optimal hydration making skin plump, firm and beautifully radiant. A unique blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acid fruit enzymes gently exfoliate, revealing the softer and smoother skin underneath. The result is brighter, healthier, and younger looking skin from the very first use.
When I first applied this clay-based facial mask, my skin began to tingle, which always makes me nervous with my sensitive skin, because a tingle can quickly turn into a full-on face melting experience. Thankfully, the tingle dissipated quickly, making the 30 minutes go by without further incident. I find that a lot of clay masks tend to make my skin feel dry afterwards, but this one makes my skin feel hydrated, smooth and radiant. Despite having some tea tree oil in the ingredient list, my skin did not react badly like it normally does, which leaves me to suspect that it is the amount, or concentration, of Tea Tree oil that triggers a reaction. Pure Tea Tree oil makes my skin turn into an itchy sunburn-like redness, but this mask did not leave my skin red or itchy!
This is a beautiful facial mask. I believe that it is suitable for all skin types unless you have sensitivities or allergies to certain ingredients.
I’m torn between this facial mask and the one from Sukin for my favourite! I guess that it is a tie!
Have you tried this facial mask? What is your favourite facial mask?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
