Wellll, in August my bag was not delivered and I ended up getting a replacement bag because ipsy is awesome and worked with me diligently to get my August bag. However this meant that a few of the items were different. One of those items was the MUDMASKY Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask.
I was highly skeptical of it, something true of all non-sheet masks I’m given. My skin is so sensitive that it’s better to be safe than sorry. However, after one of the most stressful months of my life? I needed to relax and threw caution to the wind and try this mask. What happened? Something wonderful. Click the link to find out more.
First off, MUDMASKY is described as: a natural way to Detoxify and Renew your skin in a few minutes. It also claims to refine pores and brightens, while keeping your skin Hydrated and Smooth. Helps to Balance your Skin’s pH for a Perfect Complexion. Skin becomes visibly Healthier, feels Energized and looks Plumper.*
The instructions are as follows:
Apply a thin layer to your face, you will experience a slight tingling sensation. Leave mask on for:
– 7 minutes if you have a dry/ dehydrated skin type
– 9 minutes if you have a normal / combination skin type
– 11 minutes if you have a oily skin type
Remove the Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask with cold water.
Use once or twice a week.
Since my skin falls under the combination category I decided to try it for 9 minutes. I applied it with my fingers, somewhere between curious and anxious. It had the texture of mud (be easy on me, maybe this should have been obvious, but this was the first mud mask I’ve ever done) and smelled interesting, kind of a mix between clean and natural. Once I applied a thin layer to my face I set a timer for 9 minutes.
At first it felt kind of weird, but then it started to dry…and I understood why Chutney’s mom in Legally Blonde couldn’t move her face. It wasn’t unpleasant, it was just kind of like my skin was paralyzed in a weird way. When I looked in the mirror I saw that the mask had dried, turning the brown mud to a greyish green….well MASK. My skin was also kind of tingling.
I waited for 9 minutes before removing with a gentle cloth and cold water. I was kind of terrified to look in the mirror after I removed the remnants of the mask. But when I did,
I was pleasantly surprised. My skin wasn’t as flushed as normal, felt moisturized, was glowing, and looked healthier. I was impressed. However. I had only used it once.
So I decided to use it two more times. I used it three days later and four days after that, with consistently improving results. My redness went down considerably, the wrinkles under my eyes visibly smoothed out***, my pores were less visible, and I felt rejuvenated every time.
To put it simply I loved this mask. I loved it so much that I went searching for where I could purchase it. The only mask I’d ever enjoyed as much as this was the Leaders brand masks (check out and purchase at ULTA here). And then I found out that unlike the Leaders Masks who retail anywhere from $5 to $9 for a single mask or a pack of a few? The MUDMASKY Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask retails for $81 for 2 fl oz.
Which I mean, the sample was 0.5 fl oz and I got 4 uses out of it, which means I’d get at least 16 masks out of the full size (the only size btw), which is about two month’s use. However, I’m on a very limited income and can’t really justify buying this mask as much as I’d like to.
If you’re in the mood to try a mask or are looking for a fantastic one that makes you feel years younger and price isn’t an issue? I’d highly suggest this one which you can buy here. It’s a great mask and my skin definitely benefited from it. For an added bonus, the masks are made from all natural ingredients and are cruelty free.
I give this mask a 9.9/10 because I’m salty that I can’t afford to buy it because it’s so expensive.
If I COULD I would 100% be a loyal customer til the day I die.
That’s all for today.
❤ Later Lovelies

**I have slight wrinkles under my eyes because I’m 27. It’s part of growing older. This product did not make these wrinkles disappear, but they made them less noticeable. Had I had more of the the mask I don’t know what it could have done to them.
