Why I needed a product like this?
Since life and work challenges can disrupt a perfectly good thing, I have persistently tried to maintain a consistent skin routine with a perfect combination of over the counter brand name products. I really thought that I had found the cure and permanent solution. However, my skin issues happened after I returned from traveling for a couple of months. Something in the air or climate produced major radical damage and I experienced every girl’s worst nightmare… acne, blemishes, blackheads and large pores. More so than I ever had in my life.
I dealt with it while I was traveling because I had to but upon my return I went on a mission to hunt down an all-natural product that would strip out all of the impurities and oils and would reduce the zone of my blemishes living all over my face. I found InstaNatural’s dead-sea mud mask at the spa I got my eyebrows waxed at. The esthetician had purchased it online for her own clients and she raved about the mask. So much so that she sent me home with a nice size sample. I used it twice that week and from there on I could not live without it. I checked out amazon and saw that they offer a variety of products, but I decided to purchase the 19 oz. container. It came within a few days and it really has worked wonders since. It is great maintenance in between facials and perfect for your own at home weekly skin routine.
About the brand
I love a brand that can offer natural solutions to skin, hair and body challenges. InstaNatural’s pure and gentle formula makes the dead-sea mud mask easy for everyone to use! Not only did it became MY favorite but my boyfriend was motivated enough to try it and he now loves it too!
I checked out their website and they offer a variety of products ranging from cleansers, peels, masks, deodorant, and eyelash enhancing mascara. The brand is confident enough that their product produce results, and if it doesn’t meet expectations you can get your money back. It’s the perfect one stop shop.
Uses and effects of Dead Sea Mud Mask
My skin is very oily so it works very well especially if you are like me. If you have acne, acne scars or blemishes this mask will dry that all out and restore your skin. It detoxifies pores and controls future acne attacks! I started to use the dead-sea mud mask post shower 2 times a week and I leave it on for about 15 minutes. I keep a cucumber sized circumference around my eyes to avoid any mishaps and I don’t use it on my lips. After few minutes it starts to slightly tingle and harden, almost difficult to show emotion. You can actually see the excess oil, toxins, blackheads and gunk being stripped away. You can wash it off with warm water when you see a light brown faded color.
Formulation/ Main Ingredients
The mask has 7 widely known ingredients which produce a creamy texture and earthy smell. The magnesium, sodium and bromine combined give it a deeper cleansing ability. I love anything that has Shea Butter in it, especially when it comes to moisturizing. The mask also contains some of the earth’s most preferred ingredients, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera, Calendula Oil and Hickory Bark Extract. The Hickory bark extract is used to sooth dry skin while the filtered water and xanthan gum improves stability all over.
I was not expecting the container to be as big and lightweight as it is, so that was a fun surprise. The mask comes in a 19 oz. white plastic container with a screw-on lid. I prefer products with a lid because it makes it easy to take a small amount for traveling or giving samples to some friends. You can easily scoop out a few layers with a butter knife and voila!
What I Like About Dead Sea Mud Mask
This mask is more powerful than any other mask I have tried. I love a good mask that fights hard against toxins for a smoother complexion. You don’t need to use it more than once a week, so the maintenance is low. The mask can pretty much be used anywhere and you will see that it extract excess oil and dirt, and you literally see the pimples drying out and fading away. After several weeks my blemish marks were reduced, even the blackheads on my nose were less and all the irritation and redness were gone. Like a strong hook, this mask fights acne, blackheads, redness, wrinkles and blemishes.
What I Didn’t Like About Dead Sea Mud Mask
The mask really tightens and hardens so it strips away all of the moisture. If you have dry skin this is probably not for you, be cautious. If you use an uneven amount one area can have too thick of an amount in another area, the area you applied too much on is still hardening, while the rest of your face is dry. It may produce discomfort in the areas that are dry, so make sure to apply evenly.
My Final Verdict
If you want to pamper yourself, use it on your body too! Back, arms, legs, you name it! I put it on a couple of minutes before I get out of the shower and let the steam work its effects to give it an extra kick. After you rinse off, pat everything dry and you will literally instantly see and have a smooth, clean and clear face and body.
Turns out this mask is really universal. I gave a small sample size to my pregnant friend who was experiencing dryness around her belly and the natural ingredient made it safe and harmless. She used it twice every other week, and it gave her belly and face a radiant and redefined glow. Regardless of what area you use it on, you can rest assured that it is safe, with the exception of eyes and lips.
