Advantages: Cleanses your face
Disadvantages: Nothing unless you hate mud masks
Undeterred by my most recent experience with the peel off mask which unfortunately didn't peel off, I have decided to try another, this time the Mud Pack; I surely can't go wrong with a mud pack?
Again, it cost a mere 99p, so quite a bargain, especially since this one is, again, anti stress.
This one promises that I will experience ultra pore cleansing. The product apparently contains Dead Sea Mud to draw out impurities and open blocked pores to give clean soft skin.
The product is against animal testing and adheres to the Vegetarian Standard (I would be grateful if someone could explain that to me)
The product comes in a small red/pink sachet with a lady on the front with a blue face and leaves on her eyes.
There are the usual instructions and ingredients on the packet, so I can be left in no doubt as to how to use it; hopefully this time it will all be worth it.
First of all, I open up the packet, and this time, because I have used the products before, I am not surprised by the ease with which they can be opened; again, no scissors of frantic gnawing required
Squeeze the packet and out it comes.
It is a bit more runny than I expected. I think with a mud pack I expected it to be quite thick and mud like, but this is a blue green colour and a runny consistency. Next time I use it, I will have to be careful not to squeeze too hard.
The over riding smell, in my opinion, is lavender, and I checked on the back, yes, lavender is one of the ingredients.
Test for sensitivity, and if it gets into your eyes, wash out immediately.
Sensibly enough, it tells you not to use it on babies or small children.
Do a sensitivity test on the back of your arm before applying to the face and if a reaction occurs, then obviously, don't use it.
• cleanse face with warm water only, not with soap.
• apply the product evenly over face and neck avoiding eyes and lips
• lie back and relax for 10-15 minutes
• rinse with water
• repeat weekly

Lots of information about their products, stockist, and includes an on line ordering service
Huge range of products, including face masks and tonics, leg and foot care, and even fab face food, which is food for thought.
I cleansed my face but did use a product to do so; I have my doubts that only water would achieve the desired result of a thoroughly cleansed face with open pores.
On went the mask, and I lay back to relax for the specified time.
I could actually feel the mud drying on my skin and it actually felt as though it was thickening and my skin was tightening…this one was working.
After the obligatory 15 minutes, I had a sneaky peek at my face and yes, it actually looked dry (it already felt dry). The mud pack had gone a more grey colour and definitely needed removing.
It was incredibly easy to remove with only water and I was not left with any bits of blue on my face- the whole lot came off with no scrubbing, and left my face feeling squeaky clean. After the application of mud, this seems a contradiction, but indeed true.
Again, my one grouch with the product, is that there is too much for this single pack application; maybe I just don't use enough. However, it means that I am left in a quandry...do I throw it away or leave it half full/empty in the bathroom with bits of blue mud seeping out?
Great product. Easy to apply, and leaves your face very clean. An added bonus is that it doesn't seem to bring out a rush of spots as a lot of deep cleansers do.
For 99p, this is certainly worth the money if only for an excuse to lie back for 15 minutes, doing absolutely nothing.
Thanks for reading
