Everybody here knows I love a good face mask. It’s one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine so whenever there is a new one to try I get all excited about it! I was lucky enough to be sent the Pristine Dead Sea Mud Mask for the purposes of reviewing and it is like no other mask I’ve tried before.
Let’s talk about the packaging. I love that it comes in a dark jar-like tub and the colour of it reminds me of old pharmacy bottles which also suits the font because it’s also very vintage. The tub is actually plastic but because it hold so much product it’s still really weighty.
The texture of this is smooth but still fairly thick. It’s got quite a creamy feel to it and does’t feel as harsh as some detoxifying masks can be. I apply this with a flat foundation brush because I hate dipping my nails into this deep jar and I can always get a good thick layer on my skin. Due to the texture of this it also washes off really nicely and you don’t have to scrub half the layers of your skin away to get it off! There’s also not much of a smell, just a faint mask-like scent if that’s such a thing!! (It is to me.)
You may or may not be aware but my skin type is dry and I quite often get horrible itchy patches of dry skin on my face and neck if I don’t stick to a good routine. One of the reasons this mask is so perfect for me is that it never dries. I have been using this for a few weeks now and even though I apply a thick layer and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes it still doesn’t dry. I like using this when I haven’t really been being kind to my skin and it’s needs a little more TLC and moisture.
I’m really impressed with this mask because my skin always feels lovely immediately after using it but also stays lovely; I think one of the reasons for this is because there are no ‘nasties’ in the ingredients it’s all natural which is a bonus. My makeup always applies better the day after using it and I never have any break-outs afterwards and my skin looks generally better looked after.
This is ones of those masks that even if you don’t have the same skin type a me (dry) this would still work for you as a pampering and detoxifying mask. Let me know if you have tried this or another non-drying mask!
