Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
This luxe Organic Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask by Pure & Essential Minerals, which looks and feels like a soft, dark gray pudding (a sensation I very much enjoyed), smooths on comfortably and delivers an instant cooling sensation from the eucalyptus oil.
This bracing, tingly feeling is great after a hot summer’s day and makes you feel confident the mask is working. Dead Sea mud is renowned around the world for its cleansing and smoothing properties, and this mask certainly delivers both. I felt my skin and pores were cleaner than they had been in a long time after using this mask, which the creators recommend using once per week. I think the mask really did help to absorb and remove dirt and dead skin cells from my pores, which is important to me right now, as my increased use of daily sun block has resulted in some stopped up pores and pimples that I want to actively fight against. I now have this powerful mask in my arsenal.
My skin is normal to oily and this mud mask is perfect for skin like mine. If your skin is sensitive, however, this mask might be too strong for you and might possibly cause redness or irritation. I had no trouble with it, however; my skin was thoroughly cleansed and felt great, not tight or irritated, after all of the tingling. I did not have any redness or flaking skin, which can happen with some other mud masks that contain manmade chemicals. This mask, in contrast, contains all natural ingredients.
In addition to being safe and natural, this product is cruelty free and seems to be Made in the USA (although the mud is obviously from the Dead Sea).
The mask also contains organic shea butter, jojoba oil and aloe vera, so it will cleanse without drying.
Overall, this is an effective product I will gladly use over and over again (the jar might look small in the photo, but it is a significant amount of product, plus a little goes a long way, so it’s a good buy).
On a final note, I was provided a free jar of this mask to try in trade for my honest review. I have no complaints about this mud mask, and I’m a huge believer in Dead Sea mud products in general, but for me the eucalyptus element was a bit strong. But that’s just me and I don’t want my individual scent preferences to sway you in any way, as my personal scent preferences are sometimes unusual.
