Covered in Mud at Beauty Info Zone

Monday, April 11, 2011 | Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos

Most people don’t think of mudslinging in positive terms—unless you’re a Mineral Mudd fan, of course. This month, makeup artist and Beauty Info Zone blogger Lisa gets her hands dirty putting our rave-reviewed facial mask to test. Here’s her verdict:

“I have a love-hate relationship with mud masks.

On one hand, a mud mask makes me really feel like I am pampering myself. I can walk around with quite obvious proof that I am taking time out for myself.

The hate part is that mud masks can be very drying and irritating. It’s definitely trial and error to find one that truly works, that unclogs blocked pores, exfoliates dull skin, and leaves one looking refreshed and glowy.

I have used this regularly for several months now and it’s terrific. It’s a very thick, cream brown mask that spreads easily without much mess and dries quickly. Love the hygienic packaging, it’s a squeeze tube so the product stays fresh for a long time. I use this once a week, and it keeps my skin looking bright. What I love about it is that it doesn’t dry my face out, no matter how long I leave it on.

If you have very oily, blackhead prone skin you can use this as a spot mask, and it’s gentle enough to use more often than once a week. It does a great job of regulating the skin. I actually put this on newly erupting blemishes and then sleep with it on, and the next morning the problem is gone with no ill effects.
 
Does it work?  I certainly find it does, I love it.  I think this is one of the best mud masks on the market.”
