The healing properties of Dead Sea mud have been renowed for centuries. The Dead Sea, which is located between Israel and Jordan, is the lowest point on Earth's surface at 1,400 feet below sea level. The mineral-rich mud found there does wonders for skin, including drawing out excess oils and impurities. The Pure & Essential Minerals Dead Sea Mud Mask contains 21 essential minerals from the Dead Sea!
Along with removing impurities, toxins, and excess oil from the skin, the mask also stimulates and improves blood circulation, resulting in a lovely glow. It's certified vegan, is cruelty-free, and contains the following all-natural ingredients:
Dead Sea mud, organic shea butter, organic sunflower oil, organic aloe vera juice, organic vegetable glycerin, organic jojoba oil, hickory bark extract, organic calendula oil, filtered water, xanthan gum, and eucalyptus oil.
Like most mud masks, this one creates a tingling sensation upon initial application. If you have very sensitive skin it may burn more than someone with normal skin. My skin is on the sensitive side, but I didn't find the tingling to be too much, but I wanted to let everyone know just in case.
This 6 oz. jar is quite hefty, and I estimate that it will last at least three months. The instructions say to apply a medium layer to the face and upper neck and to leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, then remove it using warm water and rubbing in a circular motion. You can wash away excess with warm water and a washcloth.
I've used this once so far and I think it's wonderful. It left my skin feeling smooth and free from excess oil, which is really important to me. I like to use mud masks once a week to really purify and balance my skin since it gets so oily throughout the day. I did find that it was necessary to use a washcloth to remove it, since warm water alone wasn't enough. Using the cloth adds a little bit of gentle exfoliation though, which is also great for your skin.
