Ahh, Mud Masks...one of the greatest "pamper me" items ever, and I have to say, I have a new favorite. I was given the chance to review this awesome Dead Sea Mud Mask from Barefaced Skincare, and I LOVE it! It has an earthy scent, which I expect of a mud mask, because it lets me know that it is real. I have never been fond of the ones that have so many other ingredients in them, that they just smell like fragrance.
This mud mask is full of natural minerals, salts and nutrients, that are proven to have repairing and healing properties for our skin. The mud in this mask is harvested right from the bed of the Dead Sea, where layers of fine salt, sand and clay deposits have developed over centuries to form this amazing black mud.
I decided to pamper myself after a long day of wrangling some overly rambunctious children, so after washing my face with some simple face wash, I applied the mud to my face, massaged slightly, and left it to dry for roughly 15 minutes, before rinsing it with warm water, and patting my face dry. In this picture, the mud has been on for about 5 minutes, and was already feeling tight on my face.
Right away, I liked that it was thick enough that it stayed where I put it, but not so thick that I had to apply pressure to spread it. It had a nice scent to it, very earthy with botanical undertones, which include sunflower, lavender, aloe, and eucalyptus.
After rinsing my face, I followed up with a Vitamin C serum, and a good moisturizer. My face felt so soft and smooth, and by the next morning, some of my blemishes were already gone. I do the mud mask about once a week, and my skin is always happy afterwards!
