H&M Olive Oil Deep Cleansing Mud Mask

I was so excited to try this mask… And I don't know if I can say I'm disappointed, but I'm not sure about it. It might make someone happy, but it's not for me.

-Easy to apply
-Did not break me out or cause redness/dryness

-Does leave a little bit of residue in your pores, even after cleansing (came off with the toner)
-The smell is too strong

Water, Kaolin, Bentonite, Shea butter, Olive fruit oil, Glycerin, Cocoa seed butter, Glucose, Dead Sea mud, Xanthan gum, Fragrance, Aloe Vera leaf juice, Olive leaf extract, Citric acid, Glucose oxidase, Alpha isomethyl ionone, Potassium iodide, Sodium thiocyanate, Lactoperoxidase, Yellow 6, Blue 1

I applied it all evenly on my face. It doesn't seem to me like I used a lot more than I usually do, but the package doesn't seem as full as with the other masks I've tried.

I'm not sure it did deep cleanse my face… However, the blackheads on my nose do seem a bit lighter.
It didn't break me out or cause dryness or even redness. It was nourishing.

The smell itself isn't bad, it smells a bit like beauty products, the problem is that it is just so strong and overpowering that it is hard to keep it on your face for too long. I don't mind strong smells, after all, I love the Cinnamon & Argan Oil mask, but this one just made me kinda nauseated. Which makes me kind of "beauty sad". I love Olive Oil and it's something I like to use on my hair and skin, so a mask was something I was really wanting to love.

Not only that, it contains Kaolin, Bentonite and Dead Sea mud, which are clays that are known to be good for your skin, drawing out impurities. And on top of that, Aloe Vera, which is very soothing and I really like in products.

I recommend anyone who wants to try it, because it does contain very good ingredients for face masks. I will use up the 2 packages I have but I don't think I will be buying it again, simply because of the fragrance. Sad Face :(

Have you tried it? Did you like it? 

My other H&M Mask Reviews:


  1. Yeah, I just got one today. For me, it doesnt smell too bad. I kept it for hours though. Cos I had to get some stuffs done. Did you use a whole pack at once?

    1. I was able to use it several times :)
