A Dupe for Lush’s Best Selling Mask—REVIEW Jarte Minty Mighty Mask

by - November 10, 2020

I’m sure everyone ever uses a face mask in their lives. Even though ‘masking’ isn’t your thing, I’m pretty sure you’ve done it at least once. For people who enjoy masking, you might enjoy using both powder mask (the type of face mask that you have to ‘cook’ first) and ready-to-use mask. But, for people who are lazy or just hate the hassle of making the mask before using it, they want a face mask that they can use right away. I fall into that lazy people category (lol), so I prefer a face mask in a paste form.

When I saw Jarte released a face mask that is similar to Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty, I was intrigued to try it. Not to mention so many posts talking about it on Instagram, ugh, I want to try it even more! The name of the mask is Minty Mighty Mask. Finally, I got the opportunity to try it, thanks to Female Daily Network! I was included in their Member Review Project so that I get to try this product. If you want to know more about my review on this product, please keep on reading!

IDR139,000 for 80g.

A regular black plastic pot, but it feels more secure because it has an additional inside it to prevent leakage. The packaging is simple and nothing revolutionary, but the cute combination of colour makes this product looks more captivating.

The scent is soo good it smells chocolatey mint! Smells like a gelato aroma. Honestly, I bought an actual gelato the next day after I sniffed this mask :p

It has a thick creamy paste texture, but still easy to spread. The consistency looks like a gelato, too!

Just like its name, Minty Mighty Mask, this mask contains peppermint oil to give a refreshing effect, sometimes even stings/‘spicy,’ on the skin. It depends on the sensitivity of your skin. It stings a bit on the area of my nose since it’s quite sensitive (because I regularly extract comedones/extract sebum on that area, hehe). The stinging sensation doesn’t last long, so I don’t consider it disturbing. This mask contains a little of small-sized scrubs. I usually avoid scrubs, but I still use this mask since the scrubs in it is not many and not that harsh.

I think this mask works more effectively to control excess oil instead of deep-cleansing. It’s because when I use this mask, I still can feel some of the comedones, and it needs to be manually extracted. This mask makes the comedones on the face softer and easier-to-extract. I mean, other face masks can give you an instant smooth skin feel after you wash it off, and I don’t feel it from this mask. I think it’s because I avoid washing it off too hard, though. I tried giving more pressure when I wash it off, and I ended up with better, softer skin result afterwards, especially when I use this mask after I cleanse my skin using a cleansing oil.

The performance to get rid of excess oil is excellent. Another plus point for it because it doesn’t make the skin very dry afterwards. Well, of course, it dries the skin a bit, but it doesn’t make my skin feel tight. This ability to remove excess oil can make the skin feel refreshed, and it helps to dry the acne. If you balance it with enough hydration and the right treatment, the acne will be easier to heal.

Overall, I think this is a good mask and suits people who want to do face masking but keeps getting lazy to do it! It’s not just because of the form of this mask (a ready-to-use mask), but also the scent that is so good and doesn’t bore you. For some people, this product might be considered as pricey as a face mask. But, if you have the budget and you want to try it, I think it’s worth the price!

It suits normal to very oily skin type. Even if you have dry skin, I still think you can use it. Just adjust the duration of usage, depends on how long your skin needs.

+ no-hassle type of mask, ready to use
+ can absorb excess oil well, and it doesn’t drastically dry the skin

- a bit pricey for a face mask, but the more you consider it, the more you realise it is worth the price!
