Formula 10.0.6 No Time To Shine Mud Mask Review

Formula No Time To Shine Clay Mask Review
Formula 10.0.6 says "take control of excess oil with No Time To Shine. The Sea Minerals and Kaolin Clay are the star ingredients that draw out and eliminate excess oil. Couple these with Calendula and Sea Kelp and your complexion will be beautifully balanced and toned." This drugstore clay mask is available in two sizes - the full size 100ml tube retails for $8.99AUD, and a duo of 5ml packets can be picked up for just $2. Formula 10.0.6 does not test on animals. This oil controlling clay mask is made right here in Australia.

No Time to Shine comes in an opaque, bright green squeeze tube that's sure to catch your eye. The product name and an informative description are printed on the front of the tube, a bit more information is offered on the back, along with a full ingredient list. All packaging is recyclable.

Formula 10.0.6's No Time To Shine is a greenish grey, creamy mud mask that spreads easily on the skin. Recently, I've taken to applying my clay masks with a brush for a more even coverage, but of course that's entirely optional. Immediately upon application, I feel a slight tingle that occasionally builds into a mild stinging sensation. As No Time To Shine dries down the tingle fades completely, and you're left with the typical slightly tight clay mask feel. I don't really recommend letting this clay mask dry completely, otherwise it gets quite difficult to wash away. Formula 10.0.6's No Time To Shine Mask has a mild and pleasant oceanic scent that's quite refreshing.

No Time to Shine doesn't really offer any drastic results, but it does serve a great function. This affordable mud mask is excellent at absorbing oil without over-drying my normal to combo skin. I can count on No Time to Shine to mattify me on the days that I'm looking like a greasy mess. I hesitate to say that this mask can prevent future blemishes, but it actually makes a decent low-impact spot treatment. If I have an oily pimple pop up, I dab a little bit of No Time To Shine on and allow the combination of clays and salicylic acid to work a little magic on it. Will it clear a pimple up on it's own? No, but it will help to bring it down faster than if it were to go untreated. Despite it's tendency to tingle, my complexion generally looks and feels quite calm and firm after using this mask - redness is reduced, and my face looks matte yet fresh.

Ingredient wise, Formula 10.0.6's No Time To Shine Mud Mask is pretty simple. Water and two types of clay (kaolin and bentonite) make up the base of this mud mask, along with a few thickening and slip agents to aid in application. A healthy 1% dose of pore clearing, acne fighting salicylic acid amp up this clay mask's oil impeding abilities. A couple beneficial ingredients like vitamin e, vitamin b6, and sea kelp extract make their appearance way down on the ingredient list, in concentrations too low to make much of an impact. Fragrance is also included low on the list and is unlikely to be problematic to anyone but those with the most sensitive skins.

Formula 10.0.6's No Time To Shine is best suited to combo to oily skin types, especially those prone to breakouts. Normal complexions can get away with using this mud mask once a week to clarify the skin. If you have dry, sensitive, or easily irritated skin, I wouldn't recommend No Time To Shine to you.

Overall, Formula 10.0.6 No Time To Shine Mud Mask is a decent drugstore pick, but it isn't a miraculous or unique product by any stretch. This clay mask absorbs oil and does it's part in the war against acne - I won't ask for more from a >$10 mask. If you have oily skin that needs to be kept in line, definitely pick up a packet of this affordable clay mask. See if you like it, I think you will.
