Dollarama Beauty: Eurospa Dead Sea Mud Deep Cleansing & Purifying Papaya Mask Review

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

I'm back with another Dollarama Beauty review! Here's another face mask by Eurospa, the Dead Sea Mud Deep Cleansing & Purifying Papaya Mask ($1.25 CAD, 15ml). Keep reading to see if it's a dollar store gem or not!

Like the Eurospa Heat Therapy Mask I reviewed, the Dead Sea Mud Mask has a fairly standard mask base of kaolin and glycerin, along with some plant extracts. Unlike the Heat Therapy mask, this one does have a paraben, so keep that in mind if you avoid them. This mask is also made in Korea, which is interesting as a lot of great skincare comes from there, and many other Dollarama products are made in China (which I know a lot of people try to avoid as well). Eurospa has a few other mask types available, and I didn't check them all to see which ones are paraben-free, but since the Heat Therapy one is, others might be as well. I'll do more investigating and let you know!

The Dead Sea Mud Mask is another single-use sachet which actually contains enough product for at least two applications. I slathered it all on anyway for the purpose of this review! It's a typical mud mask texture -- fairly thick and creamy -- and bright green. It has a fruity/minty smell and reminds me a lot of Amie's Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask.

Is it just me or is it totally fun to walk around with a green face? ;) As is typical with mud masks, the Dead Sea Mud Mask applies like a cream and then hardens during the 10-20 minutes you're meant to leave it on. It has a nice cooling sensation -- I think it would be great to use after a workout or on a hot day! Removal was fairly messy (again, common with mud masks), but my skin was left soft and my pores were smaller. My face also felt a bit tight after, so I wouldn't recommend this mask if you have very dry skin (mine's usually combination/oily but can get drier in the winter).

Overall, another decent mask from Eurospa. I can't help but compare it to Amie's Spring Clean mask though, as they are almost the same in form and function. The ingredients aren't exactly the same, but the results are very similar. The major difference being Amie's is sold in a multi-use tube and thus costs more. I definitely recommend trying the Eurospa Dead Sea Mud Mask if you are interested in this type of mask and only want a single use of it before buying a larger type.

Have you tried any of Eurospa's masks from Dollarama?
