Skinfood Mud Masque
Advantages: All Natural, Smells great, cheap at the right places
Disadvantages: Nothing really,
Being a man the idea of me using a mud masque may at first seem odd to others but a girl friend of mine recommended it as a solution to dry skin that I suffered form during the winter periods. As I'm someone who will usually try everything once I decided to put aside any reservations about what my male friends might think and bought myself a tube.
Initially I was at a lost as to how and what this will do so I went ahead and did some research, according people in the know a mud masque absorbs excess oil on the skin, purges the impurities in the skin and tightens pores, I assume it also helps dry skin because it certainly did for me.
The product comes in a tube, smells really nice, is unisex and has aloe vera so it's hard to fault it based on those facts alone. When applying to the face it goes on very easily and hardens in around 5 minutes though I usually waited 10 minutes to give it time to do its job. I then rubbed it off with a damp cloth as recommended on the box (though I'm sure warm water will do just as fine). While the mud masque dries moving your facial muscles becomes more impossible by the minute so there's no chance of talking to friends while you have this on so you should probably set aside 10 minutes of alone time before you use it.
After first use my face felt amazing, it was incredibly smooth I literally couldn't believe it. I'm not sure exactly how this product works but it the fact that it does is a plus in my book. I stuck to using it twice (once is generally the suggested norm but I really hate dry skin) a week and it eventually fully solved my skin problem so I'd immediately recommend it simply for that alone.
Mine has since run out and I haven't bought a new tube simply because thankfully, the winter is over making my previous dry skin woes non-existent but it's still a good buy for those who feel they need to add a mud masque to their weekly skin care routine.
Summary: A great mud masque for anyone that needs one.
