I forgot how refreshing a good, cool, mud mask treatment can feel! I used to do mud masks all the time as a teenager to help open up my pores and refresh my skin. It's been many, many years since I've actually had the time to splurge and pamper myself at home! I often think about it but there are so many other priorities as a homeschool mom that I often push things like painting my nails or giving myself a good facial treatment to the side.
Okay, I'm a sucker for anything made from the Dead Sea. It brings back good memories. Hiking up a mountain, by moonlight with friends and camping overnight by the Dead Sea where David was hiding from Saul. Priceless. Oh yeah, and being awoken by wild camels grazing along the mountain top. Floating in the Dead Sea and being foolish enough to rub my eyes directly afterward. Yes. Experiences like this are once in a lifetime and treasured dearly, so I was certainly eager to try Pure and Essential Minerals Dead Sea Mud Mask.
Honestly, it was everything I was hoping for. First of all, you only need to apply it for 10 to 15 minutes or so. I was thinking that it would need to set on my face much longer but it does what it needs to quite quickly. Then, I absolutely love the texture and consistency. It's not too gritty but rubs on smooth and silky. You do need to apply generously, which is not a real issue since there is enough in each container for a full years worth of treatments if you do it once a month. I love the way you can feel the coolness of the mask setting in after about five or ten minutes. The mask then hardens and you know that it's almost time to wash off. Once you feel it starting to crack then you can wash it off with warm water and a washcloth. Your face then feels clean, refreshed and rejuvinated! I highly recommend this mask for a fun, home, facial treat!
