Try Wild Honey Apothecary’s Pumpkin Cocoa Honey Mud: similar benefits, completely different scent.

Wild Honey Apothecary

Birchbox Breakdown

A laundry list of complex ingredients does not the mud mask make. This handcrafted Buttermilk Sandalwood Honey Mud from Wisconsin-based Wild Honey Apothecary shows that sometimes a few ingredients are all that you need. Using organic, pure skin-beautifiers, the mask exfoliates, nourishes, and brightens. Nothing complicated here.

How it Works

Locally sourced honey hydrates while lactic and alpha hydroxyl acids work to brighten and exfoliate. Aloe vera and sandalwood provide even deeper moisturizing benefits, and sandalwood softens and soothes. All work together to create a perfect moment of calm during your anything-but-simple day.

How to Use

Apply about a teaspoon of the mud mask to your face. Allow it to sit and absorb into skin. Breathe deeply for a relaxing aromatherapy treatment. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Use twice weekly.

Bio dynamic honey, organic grape seed oil, organic buttermilk, organic, organic aloe vera, organic sandalwood and pure argan oil.

ok scrub but strong honey smell

It was hard to get out of the sample bottle and it's a nice feeling to get a scrub on your face, but I thought it was too strong of a honey smell.

Wild Hone Apothecary Buttermilk Sandalwood Honey Mud
Purchased

I am amazed by the products I've found through Birchbox thus far. This mask is pretty moisturizing, is very gentle on your skin and smells so wonderful, natural and easy to use. As described, nothing comblicated here, and it wasn't irritating to my sensitive skin. Bravo, I'll be back for more and thanks Birchbox!!

A little sticky

I like the idea of this mask and the all-natural ingredients, but I didn't notice a lot of impact after using it. I didn't have the tingly-clean feeling that I often get after using masks, and I didn't feel 100% comfortable putting something so sticky on my acne-prone face.

a bit too gooey for my taste

I can appreciate an all-natural product but I couldn't help but think this product may have been more effective in my morning tea than on my face. The stickiness made it difficult to apply and manage to get off my skin. It was interesting to see my skin absorb it but I really didn't notice any major improvements. Thanks goodness for the chance to sample it first.

Decent product

I think I was expecting more of a "mud" mask when I ordered this. I love the smell of it, but it is a little more sticky than I really prefer. I don't feel like I saw the results I was expecting, but that doesn't mean that it is a bad product. I think I will continue to use it, but probably won't stop looking for a mask that I like better.

Great Birchbox Find

I am in Love with this mask. It smells amazing and leaves my skin sooo soft. I would have never found this brand on my own. So glad to have it in my box. I will definitely be purchasing a full size and making it part of my routine.

Smooth skin alert

My skin is very sensitive so I only need to use this once a week. My skin looks amazing after and it is not dried out. The next day my makeup goes on flawlessly. I am in love with this product!

Great Face Mask

This product was so nice, that of the two small samples, I had to give one to my friend! It smelled delicious and was easier to spread on my face than I thought honey could be! It left my skin feeling really soft and smooth also. the only tiny issue I had is with the sample's packaging. It was difficult to squeeze out all of the product, so maybe a little pot or jar would be a better way of distributing!
