Ahava Purifying Mud Mask


In my April Birchbox I received this little gem of a face mask, Ahava Purifying Mud Mask.  I'm currently doing a full body detox [more on that next week] so I figured on Sunday morning, why not detox my face too?  It just seemed to fit.

Ahava describes itself as the Dead Sea cosmetic brand.  The brand uses ingredients such as dead sea mud, date extract, vitamin C, raspberry root extract, witch hazel, Shea butter, and Icelandic moss to create its line of natural products.  The main ingredient, however, is their Osmoter, the brand's own dead sea mineral concentrate.  What is Osmoter, you may ask?  Well...

Given my preferences on Birchbox I was given Ahava's Purifying Mud Mask which is perfect for the combination/ oily skin out there.  It says to leave on the product for two minutes, but I had mine on for about 10.  One thing I really loved about this mud mask was that I never got that 'oh, I can't move my face' feeling [because of the added jojoba]...which is so common with all mud face masks!  It just makes the experience of giving yourself a face mask more enjoyable...in my opinion. 

My skin wasn't irritated by the mask at all, but I must say that by the afternoon it definitely had brought impurities to the surface, which I didn't mind because I knew I'd be rid of any little flare ups by the next day, but some people may not like...even though it's a positive sign of the product working!

Anyway, it's suggested to use this product twice a week, which I think I'll start doing, so I can see maximum benefits.  Added bonus: the mask works well as an overnight spot treatment as well. 


Sooooo, in conclusion, I will certainly be buying the full size Purifying Mud Mask, it'll be a good thing to mix up my face mask routine for the summer! xo
