Formula 10.0.6 is a brand I had never heard of before. As is always typical of myself, it was another classic impulse purchase on my way to get something basic like deodorant. I'd been wanting to find a new mask so I decided to just quickly walk through the isle at Walgreens to see if just maybe there was some super fabulous product I had forgotten about and/or overlooked the last time I was there. I tend to be a "more bang for my buck" kind of gal so I prefer to shop budget so I can get more loot!
At this point I had just about given up on finding a good budget mask and was planning to go spend some big girl money when I came across the Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Mud Mask. The description on the mask had words and phrases like, "energizing", "brighter complexion", "sea salt", "orange + bergamot". For $5.99 and a decent list of ingredients, it doesn't take much for me to give something a shot and I'm glad I did!
What did I like about this mask???
1. Non-DryingWhat I loved above all about this mask was that it was non-drying. I have combination-dry skin which means detoxifying masks tend to dry me out, especially mud masks. For the most part it's just a side effect I accept. Usually, I'll do a detox mask in the evening then follow with a heavy night cream to combat the dryness. However, this stuff didn't dry me out at all. In fact, I could actually feel the moisture in my skin as I was rinsing the mask off.
2. Does It's JobAs I washed the mask off I was getting a little concerned that the "Deep Down Detox" part might not be as deep down as I'd like, since I could feel some sort of emollients or oils on my skin as I rinsed. To my delight, this was not a problem! Once the mask was completely rinsed off and my skin patted dry, I felt like my face was thoroughly cleansed without feeling totally stripped.
3. ScentGenerally, I don't like orange scented anything unless it's an orange itself! No reason, I just don't. I do, though, acknowledge the benefits of vitamin C for the skin and the Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Mud Mask implies a higher concentration of orange to energize, hydrate, and brighten the skin. Fortunately, the orange wasn't overpowering at all! In combination with the bergamot it was very mild, very pleasant, and I actually really liked it!
4. PriceAt Walgreens the mask was $5.99. For a product that I totally loved, what more is there to say? Score!
What Did I Not Like About This Mask???
Not much! It took longer to remove than most other masks I've tried. Because of the emollients in the mask, you feel the need to make sure your skin is thoroughly and completely rinsed off. It felt necessary to follow up with a toner just to be sure there was no possibility of residue left behind. But again, once my skin was completely rinsed, I felt completely clean so I don't know how much of a negative that really is, but that's all I got for ya!
I highly recommend the Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Mud Mask. I bought a cleanser and moisturizer from this same brand but different formula lines that I cant wait to try next!
