Mcaffeine Cappuccino Coffee Face Mask Review

Hi 👋
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Hope you are doing great 👍

In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched Mcaffeine Cappuccino Coffee Face Mask with salicylic acid and kaolin for acne prone skin.
I am a big fan of wash off clay masks and when they are combined with ingredients like salicylic acid it's a must try for me. 

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which helps in clearing out the pores. It has keratolytic properties that helps in dissolving the dead skin cell layers, reduces sebum production and cleans dirt and debris which can cause comedones and acne.


Coming to the product details-

What does the product say ?

This cappuccino coffee mask is especially designed for oily acne prone skin. With the goodness of salicylic acid and kaolin it helps in controlling excess sebum production and prevents future breakouts. 

Almond milk helps in nourishing the skin. Coffee and caffeine have antioxidant properties which prevents free radical damage.

Ingredients- (from the website) 

Aqua (water), Kaolin, C15-19 Alkane, Isonoyl Neopentanoate, Cetearyl Alcohol and Cetearyl Glucoside, Glyceryl Monostearate, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Arachidyl Alcohol & Behenyl Alcohol & Archidyl glucoside, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caramel, Acacia Senegal Gum (and) Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Undecylenamidopropyl PG - chloride phosphate and Sophorolipids, Sophorolipids, Allantoin, Caffeine, Salicylic Acid, Fragrance, Coffee Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Milk, Sodium Hydroxide. 

Price- 575 INR 

Quantity- 100 gm 

Shelf life- six months after opening. 

Packaging- 

Comes in a glass jar with wooden spatula. 

Texture and consistency- 

It has a mousse like fluffy texture which spreads easily on the skin. During application it gives a tingling sensation which goes after 1-2 minutes.




Application-

Take the desired amount of product using the wooden spatula provided with the packet and apply on the cleansed face. Leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water.

This mask can be applied once or twice a week. 

Note- Do a patch test before trying any new product. Discontinue usage if irritation develops. 

My experience with the product- 


As I have a combination acne prone skin I love to use clay masks as a weekly treatment for myself. It helps in reducing the dirt and oil buildup and keeps my skin free from blackheads and acne. 

Recently I have started  incorporating exfoliating face masks which contain AHAs or BHA. They help in removing the oil and dirt effectively without irritating or being harsh on my skin.

I have applied this mask for quite a few times now. It has a nice creamy fluffy texture which can be applied easily on the skin. 

It's not like a normal clay mask. The mask doesn't dry out completely and it gives a kind of slippery feeling while washing it off. My skin looks brighter and cleaner after using this product. It doesn't feel dry or stretchy but I do apply a good moisturiser afterwards to retain the moisture in my skin. 

I've not seen any long lasting effects after using this product but my skin does feel brighter for at least 2 hours after application of the mask. The smell is heavenly. If you like coffee you are definitely going to love its smell. 

Pros- 

  • Vegan.
  • Cruelty free.
  • Contains salicylic acid for removing dead skin cell layers.
  • Kaolin helps in reducing oil production.
  • Almond milk soothes and moisturises the skin.
  • Didn't break me out.
  • Affordable.
  • Comes with a spatula.
  • Contains humectants.
  • Does not dry out the skin.
  • Easily available.
  • SLS free.
  • Paraben free. 

Cons- 

  • Contains artificial fragrance.
  • Percentage of salicylic acid is not mentioned.
  • Almond milk is the second last ingredient. 

Will I repurchase it? 

Not sure. I might try some other variants from the same brand. 

Hope you found this post helpful.

Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
