Hope you all are doing absolutely well. Rati di and Sanjeev are back to work. I loved your Bali pictures so much :*. Well after all the BBW mist reviews, I felt low as I did not have any products to review for you guys :P. I opened my Pandora’s Box of makeup and face packs. I found this little tube lying there desperately wanting me to review it on IMBB :D. Today I am going to review Keracnyl triple action face mask by the brand Ducray. The foaming face wash and cream from the same brand are reviewed on IMBB; you can search for them for a better understanding of the brand and products.

My experience with Keracynl triple action mask:
Exactly 2 months back I had suffered a severe breakout on my skin. I ignored it completely and I thought 1 or 2 pimples on face are OK. But I was totally wrong, this break out was not because of eating oily food or chocolates. It was because of hormonal changes in the body. By the time I realised, it was too late and I was left with acne and its marks. Enough of my sad story, but I had to bounce back. I decided to try every possible thing in the world to get back to normal. I tried Glyco A, aloevera gel, red sandal wood powder, fuller’s earth, few fruit face packs (papaya and tomato basically), aroma magic – glow, seaweed, ABC face packs. Now after this much of struggle my skin is tad bit better:D. During the search for all such anti-acne products, I came across this Keracnyl triple action mask.
Packaging: There is nothing to tell much about the packaging as it is quite simple. The tube packaging is actually easy to use let it be a face pack or face wash. This tube actually looks like a medicine packed inside it. Remember those typical ointment tubes in pharmacy? 😛
Smell: Again there is no fancy smell as such and it smells of cinthol soap.
Colour and Consistency: This is a thick mint coloured creamy mask with lot of exfoliating granules in it.
How it works: This has not been suggested by my dermatologist.I don’t know what forced me to buy this; I just bought it believing my gut feeling. I use it twice a week. I take a coin size amount of the mask on my palm and apply it on my damp skin all over. I keep it for 7 to 10 minutes until it is semi dry. Then I wet my palms and rub it though the skin (exfoliate for 3 to 4 minutes) and rinse it.
After rinsing my face feels fresh and clean. My skin is normal to dry, but on this tube it is suggested for oily to combination skin. However the mask did not make my skin dry. The exfoliating granules felt a bit harsh on my skin, so I need to rub it gently. I have been using this for the past 4 weeks and there is a definite improvement in my skin texture. I am not saying it works wonders but it is a decent mask cum scrub cum cleanser which helps you keep your skin dirt free.
Last word: This may not be an ideal product for acne prone skin but it acts as a good cleanser. There was no definite decrease of blemishes. For a face mask it is pricey but if you are looking for a dermatologically tested face mask/cleanser, you can definitely give it a try it won’t disappoint you.
Pros of Keracnyl triple action mask:
• All in one mask (mask,scrub,cleanser)
• Cleanses/exfoliates the skin well
• Improves skin texture with regular usage
• Nice mint coloured creamy mask
• Mild smell, which does not bother my nose
• Dermatologically tested
• Parabens free and non- comedogenic
• Does not rip of moisture from the skin
• Easy to use packaging
• Even if it is prescribed for oily to combination skinned beauties, I guess everybody can use it.
• Dries pimples soon
Cons of Keracnyl triple action mask:
• Pricey for a face mask
• Does not help in fading the blemishes
IMBB rating: 4/5
Would I recommend Keracnyl triple action mask to others?
Yes I will. Go for it and it won’t disappoint you.
Would I repurchase Keracnyl triple action mask again?
No this will last long as the usage is twice a week. I am still searching for a HG product which will reduce my blemishes. Please suggest me something girls.
