Mask Madness: Manyo Factory Deep Clean D-Toc Mask

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Another installment today of the Mask Madness series! It's been one of the longest running review series on the blog, a lot of masks have come and gone in the last three years.  Today I want to talk about one of my favorite masks that I've used in 2018: the Manyo Factory Deep Clean D-Toc Mask.

I quite like the looks of the recent revamp of Manyo Factory masks & packs, the only thing seems to be that they now have a considerably smaller amount of product. Each tube now only holds a volume of 65ml.

This mask is a creamy pink concoction that has a fruity floral scent to it. It's the type that doesn't leech moisture when it dries out, so it's been a favorite of mine to smear some on when I'll be sitting down in front of the computer for an unknown period of time. The mask will stay flexible and the final finish after an hour or so is similar to that of a satin-matte foundation. I'd definitely recommend using it for at least 20 minutes at a time. It rinses off pretty easily with water but leaves a bit of residual slickness with a white tint, I usually follow up with a cleanser to remove it completely.

Not sure I would really consider this mask to be very deep cleansing - for me, that means it is fabulous at expelling/melting down dried sebaceous filaments. It doesn't really do that for me at all (a better option is my beloved I'm From Vitamin Tree Mask).  What this mask shines at is brightening and leaving the surface of your face velvety soft. I actually don't think I've ever had another mask that left my face so bright after a single application!

Ingredients (from the MF site):

Carbonated Water, Kaolin, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Calamine, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Isoamyl Laurate, Wine Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Titanium Dioxide, Potassium Olivoyl Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, Glyceryl Stearate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cellulose, Fragaria Ananassa (Strawberry) Fruit Powder, Glyceryl Oleate, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Phaseolus Radiatus Seed Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Carmine, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil.
Pink denotes the ingredients that jumped out to me.

The pink color comes from calamine, strawberry and carrot powders, and also carmine (so not vegan). Another pink calamine mask I've used recently was the Missha Pink Clay mask, which had a similar texture and color (though peachier). The Missha was a better value at about twice the volume and a quarter or less of the price, but that just didn't leave me with radiant, soft skin like the Manyo Deep Clean D-Toc does.

After rinsing it off, my skin has this nice bright glow, I wouldn't call it whitening because it's more like my fae looks smooth and clear, not paler. I recently finished my first tube but already had a backup ready to go. I used it regularly, about two to three times a week for over two months.

Deep Clean D-Toc not the easiest to find mask but I think it's worth the hunt.My favorite US stockist of Manyo Factory, MelodyCosme (reward link, get $10 off orders of $50+ and I get $10 store credit), doesn't have this at the moment. There's a few left on Amazon, but I find that sellers are not very transparent about expiration dates, I prefer eBay sellers that are based in Korea (there's some bottles right now with great feedback for around $18 a tube). There's always the option to order directly from Manyo Factory website, or use a shopping/forwarding service like KoreanBuddy.
