AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask

Forget those skin-cracking concoctions of the past; this transformative treatment is a better kind of mud mask. Laced with jojoba, it uses pure Dead Sea mud and Kaolin white clay to detoxify skin without stripping it of moisture. Best of all, it works in just two minutes!

Spot Treatment

When I first got this product as a box sample, I used it as a mask. It worked well, but not better than a drug store mud mask. However, I recently used it as a spot treatment and the results were fantastic. I apply it at night and in the morning any spots I had are gone. Most acne spot treatments I have used really irritate my skin and do not take care of the zit in question. This stuff just dries them right out, but it does so gently. Also, the green tint in the mud has really helped with general redness. $31 is a little insane for a spot treatment, but since the sample size lasted almost three months, I'm betting I can get my money's worth. Also, I will probably still use it as a mask occasionally, since I've found it minimizes my pores.

It was OK

OK, just OK. This mask was easy to apply, unlike other masks that are really thick and peel up as you try to slather them on or are so thin that they dry as you spread them. The smell wasn't bad for a clay mask. It did take longer than 2 minutes to dry, but wiped off cleanly with warm water. My skin doesn't really look any different than if I had just washed it as I normally do, but it's a little softer than usual. I'm not displeased, but I'm not all that impressed either.

My face feels clean and soft!
Purchased

I have used this a few times since I got it a week ago (3 times total). Maybe I am using it too often, but it does dry my skin out a little bit. However, it is also winter, so it could be that, too. This does dry into a mask, but the directions only say to leave it on 2-3 mins. I leave it on for at least 5 so it dries more completely. I tend to like a mask that gets a little harder and feels like it's sucking dirt out of my pores. This doesn't do this as much as drug store brands I have tried, but I still like it. It seems high-quality. My skin feels refreshed and soft afterwards. I am not yet sold on it, but I think I need to try it in different seasons to be sure it isn't drying my skin out too much.

Cleared my skin moderately over night . I loved it. I bought it. I will not look into buying over products from this brand because of this product.

Yet to see a difference
Purchased

Its nice, doesn't dry too much. I leave it on for longer than 2 minutes because that seems like far too little time. I definitely see that it brings things to the surface, but I haven't seen a difference overall in my complexion. Maybe after a few more uses I will start to see results. Expensive for a smaller size though - I did not realize how little it was going to be based on the price!

This mud mask was awesome! It pulled all the junk out of my pores and shrunk them to be less noticeable. My skin looked and felt amazing after using this product. Didn't dry my skin out at all. Definitely recommend

Perfect Addition to Any Skin Routine!
Purchased

I originally bought this product while on a cruise to the Caribbean from the spa on board the ship after they had used it on me during my facial and absolutely fell in love with it! This mask fits so seamlessly into my weekly beauty routine and leaves my skin feeling uplifted, refreshed, and renewed. I like to use it twice a week, once mid week for a lil pick-me-up and once at the end of the week to clear out my over-worked pores. My skin is extremely prone to break-outs, even at my age, but this keeps my skin perfectly balanced and clear. So glad I can get it on Birchbox's website, super convenient!

Relaxing

This was a nice calming face mask to use it made my skin fell clean and very awake. Though I didn't care too much for the odor. Still a good product

Perfect mask for guys
Purchased

This mask is non-scented and does its job very well. It's moisturizing and doesn't dry out my skin. It says to leave on to 2 minutes, but I usually do about 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, my skin is soft and bright. Really great mask!
