As many readers of this blog already know, I am a fan of the Adovia line of skincare, bath and body products, all of which are incredibly effective and contain luxurious Dead Sea salts and minerals from Israel.For a limited time, you can get $10 off the Adovia Purifying Mud Mask, which uses smooth Dead Sea mud to help wick dirt and oil out of your pores, by ordering at the Cleopatra’s Choice website and using the coupon code “BubblesandFoam” at checkout.
When I started using this mask, I was battling an unusual bout of adult acne and facial oiliness. I eagerly slathered on Adovia’s mask, which felt smooth, silky and cool upon application.
After a few moments, my face began to tingle, but this never caused any irritation or redness. As the mask dried on my face, the color changed from a dark, almost black tone of gray to a smoky light gray, indicating it was time to rinse off with warm water. Although there was a slight scent to the mud, it was very mild, barely detectable and not unpleasant.
The mask rinsed off quickly and without difficulty with just a little bit of water, leaving my face feeling fresh, clean and devoid of oil. My skin was left soft and hydrated because the mask contains aloe, olive oil, jojoba oil, evening primrose oil, and other nurturing natural ingredients to prevent dryness.
Over the next 24 hours, I noticed immediate improvement in my acne, which started to shrink and dry. The redness in my blemishes was measurably reduced as well. This redness reducing effect might be from the chamomile in the mask.
All in all, this mask delivered on its promises and helped me to combat an unusually bad bout of oiliness and acne without drying out my skin.
Adovia Purifying Mud Mask comes in a large tube, so you are guaranteed dozens of applications of the product. It can be used weekly, or more often if your skin is oily.
