My sample was good for at least two masks. Thank god for awesome friends because I managed to finagle one from my girlfriend.
I don't really do masks all that often, but when I do, my fav is the mud mask. There's nothing more satisfying than knowing that all the impurities are being sucked right out and washed away.
My first impressions was that this product is VERY gritty. There were lots of little bits and pieces. This product contains no artificial colours or fragrances. It does contain a lot of volcanic rock and mineral ash, french sea clay, purified clay, real pieces of green tea leaf, green tea seed oil, grape seed, marigold and chamomile flower, cucumber, ivy, herb leaf and lavender oil. So, even as I'm applying this mask, it's already exfoliating your skin. It starts drying instantly. And this is when you start feeling the pain. Don't laugh! I'm being serious! I nearly started to tear! It was so painful that my teeth started to hurt. And boy, it really tightened. As it dried, you could feel your face shrink. I swear that I couldn't even close my lips because my face was so tight.
Once I washed everything off, my skin felt soooo soft and it didn't feel dry at all. I wasn't going to even moisturize for the night. I don't know how to describe it, but my skin felt so alive.
The only thing that holds me back on purchasing this product is the price. It's $78 for 50ml. Currently, there is a promo code for it, bringing the price down to $58? Or something like that, which still makes it a very expensive mask. Maybe, one day, when I've run out of things to purchase and places to travel to, I'll splurge on this item, which is a real pity because I really liked it (husband, if you're for whatever reason reading this blog.....hint hint!).
