There's always a lot of hype around detoxing face masks but as I was never really much of a face mask girl (I know slap my wrist) I didn't want to shell out a lot of money on a tube and not get on with it. Strolling through the aisles of Superdrug I came across this Dead sea mud mask for a mere £2.59 (also available in sachet form for 99p) with its affordable price tag I figured it would be worth a purchase to give it a go.
I don't often get breakouts, but I had noticed my skin appeared a bit congested around my chin area. With Dead Sea mud containing many beneficial minerals to improve your skin I thought it may be able to help out with this little problem I was having. The rich mineral content speeds up natural exfoliation and restores your skins PH balance. It's not really a quick fix but with continued use it is meant to help improve your skins condition.
For ease of application I apply the mask using a Real Techniques foundation brush from the Core Collection. This ensures that I don't waste any product, and I don't have it all over my hands! I apply it all over my face but focus mainly on my T Zone area. Especially my chin where the issues were. There's a slight lavender scent to the mask which surprisingly I don't mind, which is amazing as I really dislike the scent of lavender!
Once on your face you do feel a slight tingling sensation as it dries, which for some may be a bit irritating, but you get used to it. As it dries you can see that some areas tend to stay a darker shade of khaki, this mainly occured on my chin and nose where the mask was pulling out the impurities from my pores - ooh how lovely. I've been using this mask once a week for about 2 months now and I can honestly say that the amount of crap that gets pulled out of my skin has lessened across that 8 week time period & my chin is less congested.
For the price I've been pretty impressed with this little tube of muddy goodness. 2 months in and I still have plenty of the product left, so you get a nice amount for your money. I've alsobeen really happy with the results I've had when using it. It will be a definite repurchase when I use up this tube.
Have you tried this mud mask before? Will you be trying it?
