My Review :
10/5 stars!!!! I HIGHLY recommend this mask. Honestly, THE best results out of all the masks I’ve ever used.
Packaging : simple and label has great information on ingredients, description and use.
The product : Thick yellowish coloured mud. Mild scent – but smells natural and herbal vs chemical and artificial. Easy to apply. Little mess since it is so thick. Mild tingling after applying which subsided after a few minutes.
Kept on for 20 minutes. Started to get dry and harden after about 10 minutes.
I washed off in shower to avoid a mess at sink. Washed off with warm water – it came off very easily. Did not need to excessively rub to remove mud.
Immediately after drying skin : it looked so luminous, matte, clean and very soft and smooth. Literally was the best immediate effect I’ve ever experienced with a mask. Blemishes were reduced and less red. I expected skin to feel dry, tight and pulling but surprisingly never had any of those symptoms!
Following day : skin looked amazing! Bright, glowy, smooth, matte and blemishes were smaller and less red/irritated! Amazing results, love this one!
Where I purchased it? Cost?
Bought it in India a few years ago – don’t remember where or for how much.
