“ Brand: Mudd / Type: Face Mask „
I have reviewed this product before on www.ciao.co.uk under the alias LadyStardust-X and since this product didnt have a review on this site i thought id.. Inform/Warn dooyooers of this product.
Hmm where to begin with MUDD...
Normally I swear by Queen Helene Mint Julip Mask ( I will review eventually) but I had ran out and was in desperate need of a face mask. So there I am browsing in Home Bargins when I came across this erm... beauty. To be honest I didnt even look at it I just thought * FACE MASK.. 99p... MUST BUY* and did :)
On second inspection it comes in an orange and white packet with a lovely lady modelling the 'mudd' looking rather happy on the back it describes it as '100% pure clay, absorbs grease, dirt and make up' and 'doesnt clog pores or blemishes.'
Now i have oily skin and have be prone to break outs in the past so im feeling rather happy with my impulse buy. well i wouldnt be smiling like the woman on the packet for long!
Before applying 'mudd' I began my normal pre-mask routine of taking off my make up and steaming my face to open my pores.
So the mask itself isyour typical think clay mask which i prefer to the thin gel like mask. I was a bit disapointed that it was more of a grey colour than green which i know is a bit silly.
I put it on my face as instructed. The directions say to apply to clean skin avoiding eyes and mouth and leave for 8-12 minutes. Needless to say i didnt make it to 8 minutes.
Id say almost imediately i felt a sort of tingle which i normally like because i know its cleaning deep into my pores. Then i feel more of a burning sensation but i give it a chance, then my eyes start to burn! Now considering i did EXACTLY what the instructions say and avoided my eyes im a bit confused at this point. Now my face feels like its on fire so i run to the bathroom to wash it off. It left my skin quite red although it did calm down within an hour and putting on my moisturiser afterwards was like a scene from a horror film. That too burned :(
Like i stated before I have quite oily skin and its normally quite tolerant of skin products. Now, this mask specifies on its packaging that it is suitable for SENSITIVE SKIN! Correct me if im wrong but if its burning other skin types wouldnt that really hurt someone who has sensitive skin.
This review is based on my own personal experiences. If you have tried this before and it has worked for you then thats great I understand everybodies' skin is different but i would not reccommend this in any way shape or form unless you enjoy having third degree burns on your face. I begrudge even giving it one star! I suppose this was one of those cases were you get what you pay for; but what a waste of 99p!
However I am very grateful that it came in a sachet style packet rather than a tube so I wasnt stuck with it afterwards my unfortunate experience.
Absorbs facial grease, dirt and make up without causing blemishes /
