DECIEM | NIOD Mastic Must: Review
In addition to the underwhelming Flavanone Mud (reviewed here), the Mastic Must (C$37 for 90 ml) was another product I picked up from the DECIEM NIOD. Described as an efficient cleansing masque that visibly reduces the appearance of pores, Mastic Must is formulated with sap derived from Greek Mastic trees. So how well does it work? Read my review to find out......

Packaged in an aluminum squeezable tube, Mastic Must has a fairly thin and easy to spread gel-cream formulation containing mastic gum, which purifies and shrinks pores by binding to skin congestion. Also infused are soothing cornflower water, cleansing soapberry extract, decongesting niacinamide, and antioxidant-rich honey. The mask has a mild natural scent that's difficult to describe but inoffensive. DECIEM warns that a sticky feeling may result as the mask sets but the formulation is really easy to rinse off and leaves behind no discernible residue.

DECIEM | NIOD Mastic Must
After removal, my skin looks refreshed and refined. However, I honestly did not notice a significant reduction in the appearance of my pores. Quite honestly, a regular clay mask or even a good cleanser alone usually provides me with the same result. I understand that the Mastic Must is gentle and non-drying (as the gum doesn't bind oil or water), but the result is really lackluster and short-lived. Therefore, this is another miss for me from the DECIEM NIOD range. It's not a bad mask but the result simply isn't impressive enough for me to recommend it.
