Testing The Derma V10 Clay Mask Trio!

29th August 2018

Hey everyone!

I feel like I’m a little late to the party here. I got sent these masks around a month ago but I wanted to get some proper use out of them instead of posting my first impressions! I’ve seen them popping up everywhere so I was really keen to get stuck in and to see what they’d do for my problematic skin. These are Derma V10s new kaolin clay masks and they’ve been compared to L’oreal’s recent Pure Clay masks. The main difference being the price of course as these are only currently retailing at a bargain price of £1.99 each.

A Bit Of Information About Derma V10

One of Derma V10s promises is to provide their products in recyclable packaging where they possibly can. They do keep their promise in these products as the main body of the pot is glass. Unfortunately there is a hard plastic lid, which is recyclable but nonetheless still plastic. And then housed in a cardboard box which can easily be popped in the normal collectable recycling.

All of the Derma V10 clay mask set contain kaolin clay which is a natural ingredient that is renowned for absorbing and hopefully banishing impurities. Alongside kaolin, they’re packed full of vitamin E and honey to improve the texture and add moisture to the skins surface aswell as soothing it. I used each of these masks three times over the space of a week for each one. So what did I think of them?

Derma V10 Clay Mask With Red Algae (Brightening) // £1.99

One of the first things I noticed about these masks is that they all pretty much smell exactly the same, which I thought was odd as they all claim to do different things for the skin. This one is probably the most individual as it has two defining key ingredients rather than one. But to me, the main tone of the scent of them is a very clean and fresh smell. The brightening mask is a burnt orange/brown colour and it’s individual key ingredients alongside the ones I’ve listed above are walnut shell, which is for buffing away any dead skin cells and allowing new ones to generate. And red algae which is the key brightening element of the mask.

This is the only mask with exfoliant particles in and they’re quite small and delicate. The mask feels a bit gritty applying it to the face. After leaving it on for around 15 minutes, it felt really nice washing it off as the particles provided a nice massage-like effect. I must say I really felt like this mask made my skin a lot softer and noticeably brighter. I was concerned that as the exfoliant particles were so small, that they wouldn’t do much but boy was I wrong. I was very impressed by the effects this one had and will continue to use it!

Derma V10 Clay Mask With Eucalyptus (Purifying) // £1.99

This is for sure the freshest scented one out of them all which goes well with the colour being an off-white. The key ingredient in this mask is eucalyptus which is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredient which means it’d be good for people that suffer with spots and redness. It’s quite a cooling one to apply to the face therefore was really quite a perfect product to be using in the heatwave we’ve experienced recently.

I felt that my skin looked slightly refreshed after using this mask. It just made everything look a bit more evened out and made my blemishes look less noticeable which is always a good thing. Other than that I can’t say I have all that much to say about the mask! I’d say for this one the price point is still a bargain. The effect it has on the skin is quite average but for the amount of uses you get out of it, it’s definitely worth more.

Derma V10 Clay Mask With Charcoal (Detoxifying) // £1.99

This mask was the one I thought I’d like the most out of the three due to often suffering with congested pores. Again, the ingredients are the same as the other masks but with the key ingredient of charcoal. Charcoal in skincare products helps to remove oil that has been excessively produced by the skin and tightens the pores too after removing said oil. I was hoping this mask would be like my trusty The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, but was it?

Honestly, I was actually pretty underwhelmed by this mask. I was really expecting it to be my favourite as anything with charcoal in usually is but I can’t actually say my skin looked or felt different any of the times that I used it, unfortunately. I kept trying it as I really wanted to like it and to find a cheaper alternative to my current holy grail but I just really don’t feel like it does a lot. Such a shame!

Overall, I think these masks are generally good for a quick fix and to use just before an event or occasion to give your skin a boost. From what I can see, I’m not sure they’d have massively impressive long-term benefits though. I did only use them for a week each and to be honest for the price of them, I wasn’t expecting a face lift effect anyway! Despite this, I think they’d be great for a budget beauty skin boost, for pamper party bag favours/stocking fillers or maybe even good for people who want a treat but don’t want to apply anything too astringent to their skin.

What’s your favourite face mask for giving your skin that needed boost or glow? Do you think you will give the Derma V10 clay mask trio a try?

  1. I have not tried any of the three but would be quite curious to! My skin has not had treatment for ages and would probably need something more efficient though. I’d probably try the purifying mask!

  2. My favourite kinds of mask are the overnight hydrating ones. As my skin is dry sometimes clay masks can be a bit stripping. It’s a shame you thought the charcoal one was underwhelming as that’s the one I’d be most interested to try x

      Ooh I’ve never even tried one of those! Yeah I totally understand that, mine is usually just really clogged so they’re great for me! X

  3. Nice honest review! ✨ The eucalyptus one sounds pretty interesting! I also like that they are quiet recyclable

    I don’t really use face masks, but I have a clay one I like to use once in a while. Sucks that it was underwhelming but at least you tried something new

    Whenever I read about face masks I always want to rush out and buy one. They always sound so cleansing and refreshing. I’m especially loving the sound of the eucalyptus mask and it’s cooling effects. It’s such a bargain at £1.99. Thank you for your honest review Alice, will keep a look out for these, they sound perfect for giving your skin a quick boost <3 xx

      Haha! i do love a good pamper with a face mask. They are definitely a fab price for how much use you get from them! X

    £1.99 for a pot of face mask? What a bargain! My poor skin needs as many face masks as possible 🙂 I would love to try out that eucalyptus mask and the charcoal one 🙂 For me personally, the works that work wonders are from Lush! Thank you for writing such a honest review and introducing me to this affordable brand. Laura / https://laustworld.blogspot.com/

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It is a real good price, I was so surprised! The eucalyptus feels really nice and cooling on the face – I haven’t found one from Lush that has done much for yet but I’d really like to! X

  7. No wonder people are comparing these to the Loreal ones – looking at the feature image I really thought that they were them! I like how you waited longer to review them so you could properly try them out, I try to do the same thing with skincare! For £1.99 it sounds like they’d be a great quick fix, and I’d love to try the red clay one, as that one really sounds like the best! Sorry that the charcoal didn’t live up to your expectations 🙁

      Yeah they look almost identical don’t they haha! I like seeing more long term effects as with skincare it can take a while to kick in. The red one is pretty decent to be fair but I was gutted about the charcoal! X

    Love that the masks come at such a nice price for what you get. It’s a bummer that they use plastic – but at least they’re going somewhere with the glass post. It’s great that you felt fresh afterwards! I know I’d love the second mask because eucalyptus is my fave scent! It’s a bummer that the charcoal wasn’t as great. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
