Product Review: Nvey Eco Blanc Whiteness Souffle Mask

As I may have mentioned a few times lately, since being pregnant, I am increasingly aware of which skincare products I am using, trying hard to limit the amount of chemical nasties they contain. A little while ago Nvey Eco launched a new certified organic skin care online, here are my thought on the *Nvey Eco BLANC Whiteness Soufflé Mask;




What They Say:
"This deep cleansing facial mask firms, hydrates and rejuvenates lifeless skin by lifting impurities and toxins through the gentle yet effective benefits of refined French white clay which is rich in trace elements and minerals.  These benefits are then heightened with the use of an active natural extract blend that suppresses melanin production in the skin helping keep skin looking its clearest in tone and radiance".


RRP: $54 (50ml) – Available from Nvey Eco Online


What I Say:

I love Nvey Eco makeup, and the Eye shadow palette is still one of my absolutely favourites, and amongst the ten makeup items I would repurchase if I shock horror lost all my makeup.
So naturally I was very excited when I discovered that Nvey Eco is now extending their internationally award-winning cosmetics line to now include a new, innovative and completely chemical-free skin care line suitable for both men, women and youth, encompassing six skin type specific ranges.

The BLANC range is skincare range intended to help reawaken and even out tired, pigmented skin, and effectively help you restore balance and luminosity to your complexion while enhancing your natural look.

The BLANC range includes a unique and innovative combination of natural, active extracts with including Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Peppermint, Leaf Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris (Lady’s Mantle) Extract, Veronic Officinalis Extract, and Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Extract.

That also means that the mask is free from chemical nasties, including talc, GMO, parabens and SLS, fragrances, propylene glycol, as well as it is free from petroleum based ingredients. I love the sound of that!

These ingredients in the mask is said to focus on intensively nourishing the skin’s surface while the active extracts gently inhibit melanin production and discourage pigmentation. This creates a noticeably lighter and smoother complexion, as well as a reduction in the colour and intensity of age spots, freckles and other imperfections with noticeable results after 12 weeks of regular use.

The white clay based mask, has a gentle pleasant scent from the natural ingredients used in the mask, and it comes in a white pump bottle – which as always I really like, as it is so easy to use. But I have to say that I do think it is the first time I’ve come across a mask in a pump bottle, but again, no complaints from me. The white bottle has a silver pump and lid, and silver writing, and looks sleek, simple and elegant.

In spite of being clay based, like the name of the mask suggests, it has a thin consistency, and is easy to spread across the face.

The mask is to be applied to cleansed and toned skin in a thick layer, and then it is to be left on for 10-20 minutes – but I have to admit that it takes closer to the 20 minutes for it to dry, and I feel it should be removed. And although it dries, it doesn’t dry so much that you feel that your skin ‘cracks’ and the moisture is completely drawn from your face.

20 minutes is quite a while, but then I usually clean the bathroom while I’m using a face mask, but maybe I should take the opportunity to snuggle up on the couch with a magazine and relax instead.

So after now having used the mask about once a week for the past three months, does it live up to its claims..

Well, being 33 weeks pregnant, I think I have sadly noticed a slight increase in my pigmentation, so it is difficult to say if the Whiteness SoufflĂ© Mask really has made any difference to my skin tone and pigmentation – but on the other hand, as I’ve only noticed a slight increase in the pigmentation, it may also have been a whole lot worse, had I not used the mask..

But one thing I do know, and that is that the regular use of the clay mask seems to have helped control breakouts, and has refined my skin, and minimised the large pores, and it doesn’t seem as oily anymore – and it does leave my skin looking moisturised, refreshed and glowing after each use, with no dryness in sight.

At $54 for a small 50ml bottle it is a little expensive, but it feels so nice and luxurious to use, that it is a nice treat – and as I have thoroughly enjoyed using it – I will keep the remainder of the product until after I’ve given birth, and hopefully it will then get the chance it deserves to help even out my skin tone and reduce my pigmentation without any interference from pregnancy hormones!

    1. Thanks so much Florencia. I think it is very important being aware what you can and cant use during pregnancy. While I've always looked after my skin, and have had to stop using certain products that I dearly miss, I think your priorities change very quickly when you get pregnant!

  3. Nice review... can't believe you will have your bubba soon - sounds like the perfect revival mask post-pregnancy! NVEY Eco is a favourite makeup brand of mine but I haven't tried their skincare range. The line is so extensive! Tammerly @ Spoilt.
