Review: Dermaviduals DMS Mask with Vitamins isn’t your average facial mask. It's actually a
complex skin care product that can be left on the skin and worn as a day cream, night cream or serum thanks to DMS patented technology. I consider this leave-on mask to be more of a treatment serum or moisturising night cream than a mask. It looks and feels just like a moisturising lotion, however it rapidly transforms a dull complexion, delivering prompt, effective results and is perfect for a ‘pick-me-up’ on a bad skin day. The gentle formula is non-irritating and doesn't upset my sensitive skin at all. I’ve used this mask a few times a week for the past month and while I haven’t seen a great deal of change in my skin to date, it’s an excellent choice for long term maintenance, by replacing the important lost moisture and repairing the skin’s barrier, making it a handy addition to any anti-ageing skin care regime. I’ve certainly noticed the short-term effects it delivers, such as the smooth, supple skin that looks and feels plumper, fresher and brighter, imparting a more youthful radiance. I’d recommend this Dermaviduals DMS Mask with Vitamins to people of all ages, especially if you want to invest in a multi-purpose, intensive skin treatment to use as often or as little as needed to quench thirsty skin and to help achieve optimal skin health.
The mask has a very thin, runny, milk-like consistency with a weightless, silky texture. In my opinion it smells something like plastic, not an overly pungent or unpleasant scent, but it’s not the kind of fragrance that I find appealing, so luckily it’s not overbearing and doesn’t linger for long after it’s applied. I found two pumps of fluid were enough to spread in a circular motion onto my skin, but I have to work quickly because it’s a bit messy and is prone to dripping. It does make my skin rather tacky for a few minutes, but then it fully absorbs without a trace, which was surprising, because I have an oily complexion and the directions instruct that any excess cream is to be removed with a tissue. It melted straight into my oily skin and left no excess to wipe off. I experienced a very subtle tightness and the lightweight film was noticeable on my skin, yet there was absolutely no greasy residue and regardless of being left on, it didn’t exacerbate my oiliness. It’s a leave-on mask, so I prefer to use it as a nightcap so it does not run through my hair. Dermaviduals DMS Mask with Vitamins is too rich for me to wear during the day, and due to
the super nourishing formulation, I definitely don’t need a separate moisturiser. I like taking advantage of this potent cocktail of beneficial nutrients that penetrates deeply and works its wonders, all while I sleep, so skin awakens soft, firm and replenished, with a dewy, healthy-looking glow.
It comes in a simple white, plastic canister tube with a white label featuring a blue logo and black print. It’s got a clear plastic snap-on cap to cover the airless pump dispenser, which helps to seal in the goodness of the ingredients. The downside of this packaging is that you can’t see the product level and I also found it gets a bit messy under the cap due to a bit of dribble from the pump. My only little gripe with the product itself is the actual smell of it, so that deducts a ½ star from my rating. Also I’m unable to ascertain the correct pricing or purchase this brand online, because it’s a salon-only range. That to me is inconvenient, especially since I live in a semi-rural area and getting into a salon is not a viable option, therefore I feel the need to deduct another ½ star. For that
reason I can’t say for sure if I’d buy it again. I’d probably only consider it as an occasional splurge, ideal before big events like weddings etc.
Tip: It’s a good alternative to a daily moisturiser and the perfect canvas for makeup if you have a normal to dry complexion.
