Review: MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask

I did it.

I couldn't resist myself.

I went to the mall today - AGAIN - and I was running through MAC stores trying to find the Volcanic Ash thermal mask. Out of the 4 MAC's I stopped at, only one had a few left. I was so happy to have found it, the lady who was working there was actually frustrating me with how slowly she was ringing it up. Is this the part where I admit to having an addiction?

Skincare is important to me, and since I just ran out of my Mario Badescu cucumber mask, Jerrid and I need some kind of mask to feed our facial needs every other day of the week.

Soak in the glory

You know what they say...

Once you go black, you never go back!

The mask itself is to be applied after you cleanse your face and while your face is still wet. It smooths onto your skin very easily and warms up instantly! It's such a warm and earthy feeling, like your face is being warmed up by the hot summer sun.

After 5 minutes, the mask will dry up, and easily comes off with warm water.

The only downfall, is the messiness since it is black, just like with the exfoliator.

Overall rating - 5 out of 5
Packaging - 5 out of 5
Price - $19.50



  1. LMAO once you go black you never go back...., now aint that the thuth!

    <3 ya abc!!

  2. I really need a good mask. I wish I could try this one!

  3. i am a man,,am i need to skincare too??

  4. What exactly does it do?
    Oh wait.. It exfoliates.. MMkay.. I'm still curious though? But Ive got hyper sensitive skin so I probably won't try it.. Looks so cool and interesting too bad!!

  5. Oh wait- this is not the exfoliator, its a mask!! thermal mask, heats uo so, I guess thats a no brainer that it opens and cleans the pores right? I think Id need something ultra gentle and hydrating for my freak-out skin!!

  6. Hey Maria, yeah this is the thermal mask. I have the exfoliator too, and its not harsh at all. Once you mix in some water to it, some of the crystals dissolve and it becomes a lather! It's so cool!

  7. @Katie - You know we know!!! hahahaha

    @Rin - I love this mask, but it only heats up for the first few seconds :( I wish it lasted longer, but it still makes your skin feel sooooo smooth! I love it!

  8. Yaaaay ;) I'm so glad you picked this one up! Now I have a fellow addict to bond with ;p

  9. The portion with the costume Mask so that you can will fork out many of a budget from may be the mask itself. your own costume is actually fairly simple. Any time people buy on the internet This will secure a person quite a few money.
